Robert Pattinson among GQ’s 50 Most Stylish Men of the past half century

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: GQ has selected the 50 Most Stylish Men of the past half century and includes such icons as Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and some modern-day stars including Brad Pitt and Robert Pattinson.

But I am sharing with you the three who stand out to me the most in terms of looks, talent and raw sex appeal!

Montgomery Clift: As director John Huston once put it, Montgomery Clift “always held something back.” He wasn’t one of those what-you-see-is-what-you-get types. But there were a few things about him you could be sure of. He was tough without being macho. He was one of the first guys on the scene to get all moody (here’s the guy Dean learned his game from). And his bad luck offscreen left him tortured as hell. But while his sensitive, anti-Wayne act kept you guessing, his style couldn’t have been more clear: classic, clean, and American. Simply put, few folks ever looked as sharp as Monty with a slicked-back pompadour, a white oxford, and a pair of worn-in khakis.—ANDREW RICHDALE

Warren Beatty: If Warren Beatty wore scuba flippers instead of shoes, we might consider copying. If he wore garbage bags instead of oxfords, we might wake up and throw them on, too, because, you know, Warren did it. But inevitably we’d balk because, well, we’re not Warren Beatty: We don’t have that once-in-a-generation leading-man confidence, that hyperevolved swagger, that “Me? Yeah, I know—I’m great looking” smile. In a sense, it’s never really mattered what Warren Beatty wore. Warren Beatty, shirt unbuttoned to his navel, silk scarf knotted around his neck, looked…manly. Beatty tuxedo-clad? Downright debonair. And from Splendor in the Grass onward, he’s always looked completely nonchalant, which isn’t to say he didn’t think about his sartorial choices. Of Beatty, Eva Marie Saint once said, “Some guys come at you like a Mack truck. But Warren’s slow, smooth, and in complete control.” It’s hard to imagine him being anything but.—HOWIE KAHN
