The Best Dressed Men of 2012
The lists are in, and this year there were a few surprises for best dressed men of 2012. There were also a few names that you would expect to see on any best dressed list and some that have appeared on these lists in the past few years.
Christian Bale has been receiving quite a bit of attention from the press especially since his Oscar win for “The Fighter” in 2010. This year he also landed on many best dressed lists for his monochromatic colors and soft silk shirts with matching ties. The batman portrayer may have taken a cue from his most famous character, as Christian looked almost like a male model during every appearance he made.
Another actor who made the cut this year for many best dressed lists is Robert Pattinson, who has matured right before the eyes of the audience thanks to the success of the “Twilight” movie franchise. Pattinson always dresses appropriately for the red carpet, arriving in sharply tailored suits and ties, and he has toned down his wild mane of hair in favor of something more appropriate for a young man of 26.
Actor Will Smith is almost always found on best dressed lists, as he too has matured over the years from the stereotypical teen rapper with unlaced sneakers and the tallest hair in the industry to a suave and sophisticated man of style. Smith may have been getting some help from his ultra-sophisticated wife Jada Pinkett, but whatever the reason, he’s always one to watch on the red carpet.
Zac Efron is another Hollywood heartthrob that has grown and matured in front of an audience, and this year his style became just as mature as he’s often seen in soft silk suits with just a touch of color, and he too has toned down his wild mane in favor of something more mature and dignified. Efron’s smoldering good looks are one reason he makes everyone’s “best of” lists, but his unique sense of style makes him a standout no matter where he goes.
Another Hollywood heartthrob that has been turning heads for his unique style is Ryan Gosling, who always shows up on the red carpet in some of the best and most unique suits around. Gosling has been making women swoon because of his onscreen characters for many years, and this year his off-screen personality has truly shone through with his wardrobe choices. Colored suits and skinny ties are great choices for someone with such a great personality, and Gosling pulls them off in style.
Johnny Depp always makes best dressed lists for his own personal style, which usually includes fun and funky suits, dark glasses, and fedora hats. His eclectic choices are fun to watch and a true expression of his eclectic personality.
