Most female characters get dolled up on film and TV. This time, it is the men’s turn. Check out these stylish characters.

James Bond in the James Bond franchise

The sexy British Secret Service agent James Bond is characterized by his good looks, deadly skills, and impeccable fashion. Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig have played the iconic role to a T. Never ruffled nor scruffy, even after detonating bombs or saving the world, James Bond always exudes a touch of class. Thanks to the costume designers who worked on the series, like Jany Temime, Linda Hemming, Emma Porteus, James Bond has been and will always be a style icon to follow.

Jacob in Crazy, Stupid Love

Ryan Gosling took on the role of Jacob Palmer, a gigolo who taught Cal Weaver a thing or two about women and fashion. Jacob is always impeccably dressed, whether in casual wear or formal wear, thanks for costume designers Dayna Pink and Judianna Makovsky. Good thing too as Jacob is always on the prowl, bringing a different lady home every night. Watch Crazy, Stupid, Love online via Prime Video.

Derek Zoolander in Zoolander

Ben Stiller plays Derek Zoolander in the comedy Zoolander. Stiller depicts Derek as a fashion model who is so into himself. Thanks to the costume design by David C. Robinson, Stiller was able to pull off clubwear. Zoolander would never be caught wearing ordinary streetwear but always fashion couture with a touch of whimsy.

Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother

Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson is a perfect fit. Every single episode of How I Met Your Mother sees Barney in suits, ever since he got dumped by his girlfriend over an older man in a suit. And it works for Barney as the ladies always fall for his debonaire looks and killer suits. He even tried to influence Ted to do the same but it never ended well. It seems that Barney is the only one who could pull it off without breaking a sweat. Kudos should be given to the show’s costume designer Reiko Kurumada. How I Met Your Mother is the best comedy tv show on Hulu.

Fonzie Fonzarelli in Happy Days

Producer Bob Brunner created the character Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli in the 1970s hit show, Happy Days. Played by Henry Winkler, Fonzie sported a white shirt, jeans, and a leather jacket in most of the episodes. His greased-up hairdo is also quite iconic. “The Fonz’s” fashion style was quite typical fashion in the 50s and 60s by cool guys. Fonzie exemplified the meaning of a hot guy whom the ladies would want to bring home.
