The end of year always lends itself to lists. When it comes to 2012 fashion, style lists include everything from the most fashionable to the sexiest and best red carpet style, among others. For GQ, it is the style list featuring the magazine’s picks for the top 25 most stylish men of 2012.
According to GQ, the magazine’s top 25 list encompassed everyone from athletes who stepped “up their game off to field” to “rappers saying goodbye to gaudy excess” and well-dressed actors on the red carpet. Recognizing that 2012 was the year that “famous guys finally got serious about taking risks and looking good,” the gents’ magazine narrowed down the list to the men who “stood stylishly above the rest.”
This year, it is no surprise that Bond himself, Daniel Craig, tops the list as the no. 1 most stylish man of 2012. “Like the double-0 agent he plays on the big screen, Daniel Craig’s go-to is a perfectly cut Tom Ford suit that frankly makes other famous guys look like they’ve never heard of a tailor,” says GQ. The magazine gave kudos to Bond star for “playing with unconventional shirt and tie combos, or just saying “’eff it’” and showing up to a premiere in some eye-grabbing Nikes.”
The Bond star was followed by actor Zac Efron in second place and Mr. soccer, himself, David Beckham in the third spot. Singer Bruno Mars and actor,Ewan McGregor round up the top five.
Other men on the list include, Twilight star, Robert Pattinson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tyson Chandler, Jennifer Aniston’s main man, Justin Theroux, Nick Jonas, Magic Mike’s Matt Bomer, Dwayne Wade, Matt Lauer, Armie Hammer, Jay-Z, reality television guru, Andy Cohen, Ryan Gosling, Andrew Garfield, Yaslin Bey, Adam Levine, A$AP Rocky, Archer, Wes Anderson, Russell Westbrook and Frank Ocean.
