Best-Dressed Blokes Of 2010?

-------

The U.K. edition of Gentlemen’s Quarterly—a magazine that ought to know about such things—published its list of the 50 most stylish men in Britain online today. (The print edition, which will also include the ten worst-dressed men, not only in Britain but worldwide, arrives on Thursday.) The inclusion of young Romeo Beckham (#26, ten spots behind his father) has caused the most commotion. But there are plenty of other reasons to check it out.

For one, the Beckhams aren’t the only family pair included. Princes William (#27) and Harry (#5) both made the list, with a 22-place differential that ought to make for a bit of sibling rivalry. A few gentlemen included (Alasdhair Willis, #42; David Walliams, #11) may have had a little help from their fashionable wives (that’d be Stella McCartney and Lara Stone, respectively). One married pair even had both partners on the list: Sir Elton John (#21) and husband David Furnish (#6). (We personally look forward to the day when all three members of the family show up: the Rocket Man, his mate, and their new baby son, Zachary Furnish-John.)

Several unimpeachable icons of Brit style (David Hockney, #47; Bryan Ferry, #36) as well as a few designers (Christopher Bailey, left, #33; and the not-quite-British Tom Ford, #7) made the cut. Ford’s protégé of sorts, Nicholas Hoult, star of A Single Man and of Ford’s recent campaigns, clocks in at #3. And at #1? Nowhere Boy star Aaron Johnson, more familiar to American tabloid audiences than movie audiences: The 20-year-old proposed to director Sam Taylor-Wood, 43, shortly after wrapping the Lennon biopic.

The High Street Princess

-------


Speculation over who will design princess-to-be Kate Middleton’s wedding dress has been rampant since her engagement was announced (and not just among London’s bookies). And now anyone looking for a clue to her style can admit her official, Mario Testino-shot engagement photos into evidence: A pair of them (one formally posed in the Council Chamber connected to Clarence House, his father’s official residence, above left; and another, more intimate shot, above right) were released this weekend. In both, Middleton chose high street over high fashion. For the formal shot, she wears a dress by Reiss and earrings by Links; for the more informal shot, a blouse by Whistles, a retailer overseen by former Topshop head designer Jane Shepherdson. Wills, for his part, went for the expensive stuff: a suit by Turnbull & Asser, and a sweater by Brunello Cucinelli.

Jewels By Angie, Tattoos Fit For Pilati, A Moo-rc Jacobs Christmas, And More…

Angelina Jolie is collaborating with former Asprey CEO Robert Procop—her longtime friend and jeweler—on a collection of fine pieces in “statement stones.” She “has a very classic style,” Procop insists. The celebrity-jewelry-design game is getting a little crowded lately, no? [WWD]

Speaking of accessories, tattoos are gaining ground as the new ones to have. T asked four noted artists—Marina Abramovic, Aaron Young, Harmony Korine, and Stefano Pilati’s own tattoo man, Mark Mahoney&8212;to suggest a few new designs. [T]

NSFW: behind-the-scenes video from Karl Lagerfeld’s Pirelli calendar shoot, featuring 23 minutes of Karl talking, a lot of undressed models, and not much else. Though admittedly we’ve sat through viral videos for less. [Racked]

And sure to be safer for work: the latest plum assignment for Mario Testino. The lensman has been named the official portraitist for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s engagement photos. [Vogue U.K.]

Dior Buys Dovima, Britt Maren’s New York Nosh, Save The (Royal) Date, And More…

-------

Dovima has a new home: Chez Christian Dior. The iconic Avedon portrait of legendary model Dovima in a Dior gown, surrounded by elephants (pictured), was snapped up by the house of Dior when it went on the block at Christie’s much-anticipated auction in Paris. It went for $1.1 million (at current exchange rates), the highest price, according to a Christie’s expert, recorded for such a photo in France. [WWD]

Looking for runway newcomer Britt Maren? Try New York’s Fat Radish restaurant on the Lower East Side. As she tells W, her boyfriend works there as a cook and she’s a regular—as, apparently, is Marc Jacobs. [W]

More details are emerging on Prince William’s royal wedding: Wills and Kate Middleton will be married on April 29 at Westminster Abbey. Dress details, alas, remain a mystery. [Vogue U.K.]

Good day for J.Crew: The do-no-wrong retailer has announced that it’s been acquired by Leonard Green & Partners and TPG Capital, to the tune of almost $3 billion (!). CEO Mickey Drexler will stay on, and remain one of the company’s largest stakeholders. [Fashionologie]
