Eddie Redmayne, the British actor and star of The Theory of Everything, has won GQ's fairly irrelevant title of best-dressed man. The actor beat his old pal Benedict Cumberbatch and the Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan, who finished second and third respectively.

Elsewhere on the list, Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner was at number four, while Nick Grimshaw - last year's winner - dropped to five. We're told the list was compiled by staff at the magazine and a panel of "fashion experts". 

Surprisingly, Prince Charles was at number seven while his 1-year-old grandson was in at a ridiculous 49. Wayne Rooney finished at 26th while David Beckham could only manage 46th.

On the other side of the coin - perhaps harshly - was Newsnight presenter Evan Davis, who was named Britain's worst dressed man. Fashion designer Ozwald Boateng was named Britain's second worst dressed man while sports presenter Clive Tyldesley came in third. Former politician Michael Portillo, Bobby Norris, Brad Simpson, Brian Souter, Norman Baker, Christian Jessen and footballer Alex Song made up the list.

Though Redmayne is the overall victor - he has bigger fish to fry. The bookmakers have shortened his odds of winning Best Actor at the Oscars to just 6/4, meaning he's now level pegging with Michael Keaton. The British star plays Dr Stephen Hawking in James Marsh's critically acclaimed biopic. 

"An unusual point of view prevents this from ever turning into the standard biopic, but it's Eddie Redmayne's staggeringly committed performance as Stephen Hawking that makes the film unmissable," said our own Rich Cline in his review of the movie.
