5 of the best dressed movie and TV characters
1. Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley in Beverly Hills Cop
This may look low effort, but Foley's get-up here is perfect for wise-cracking and chasing crime. The simple combination of white shoes and blue jeans is one that will never go out of fashion, with the cut-off hoodie that Foley adorns himself with adding enough character to separate it from being a run of the mill jeans and a T-shirt amalgamation.
2. Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho
With a wealth of fantastic outfits to choose from, it was difficult to pin down just one look from Patrick Bateman that stood out more than the others. Eventually we decided on this sleek and suit and tie combination that kept him classy as his bone business card with Silian Grail lettering did the talking. It's the little details like the tortoiseshell glasses and pinstripe suit that make this a memorable, yet infinitely classic, attire.
3. Ryan Gosling as Driver in Drive
Undoubtedly the slickest man to ever wield a hammer, we're pretty sure that everyone raced to the stores after watching Ryan Gosling's Drive in hopes of replicating this uber retro look. The driving gloves will be hard to pull off without Driver's signature swagger, however, the bomber jacket is a statement piece that will surely find its way into your wardrobes.
4. Will Smith as Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
We can't think of a more quintessentially '90s look than that of the Fresh Prince himself. Will's brash use of colours and patterns has left him with many iconic outfits over the years, however, it's this simple dungaree and garish rayon shirt combination that we'd like to see more people experimenting with. Fashion is a form of experimentation and we think that Mr.Smith perfectly typifies that brave and youthful ideal.
5. Colin Firth as Harry Hart in Kingsman: The Secret Service
Firth's Hart was without a doubt the most impeccably dressed spy since James Bond, with his high-quality garms providing much for us to drool over throughout the film. With news that Firth has been cast in the sequel, we're certain that everyone will be paying attention to the high-quality tailoring of his suits and shoes the second time roung. Just make sure to remember one thing: Oxfords, not Brogues.
