GQ has revealed the results of a reader poll to winnow down the best-dressed male celebrities, with Zayn Malik dubbed 2017’s best-dressed male thanks to readers’ votes.
In an online poll, GQ readers were asked to vote for the star they thought to be the most stylish, with the former One Direction star facing off against the always suave Tom Hiddleston in the finals.
With more than 30,000 votes cast in the first-ever poll, Malik received 59 per cent of the votes, while Hiddleton took 41 per cent, with GQ declaring: “Malik’s style is one that’s as experimental as it is smart, making him a man who can do streetwear slickness just as effortlessly as red carpet suiting. We would say it’s the kind of cool approach to outfitting that would rub off on any man dating one of the world’s most famous supermodels, but Malik’s dress sense was there way before Gigi. Even in his One Direction days, that personal style shone through his boyband styling.”
Adds GQ: “This is a man who loves to look good, knows the trends and wears a wardrobe worthy of one of the world’s most talked about musicians — one that many men, including us here at GQ HQ, seriously covet.”
