Christian Bale has been named as one of the best dressed men in the world.
The Dark Knight actor has been recognised for his love of sharp suits in a new style list by men's magazine Esquire.
Grammy-award winning US rapper Lupe Fiasco and Cameron Diaz's rumoured ex-boyfriend, environmentalist David Mayer de Rothschild, also joined Bale in the top 10.
Esquire fashion director Catherine Hayward said: "Powerful men know how to dress themselves and often stick to a uniform. Each of the men in our list has given a teasing twist to traditional tailoring and made the look entirely their own.
"Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco wears a tailored jacket and works the look with layering and checks. Each man has interpreted the look to suit his own style."
British TV presenter Jeremy Paxman also appears on the list in recognition for his "confident" dress sense.
Hayward added: "Jeremy Paxman more than holds his own against the Hollywood power set. He obviously takes confidence from his suits and the way he dresses reinforces his authority in interview situations."
US Presidential candidate Barack Obama, British royal Prince Michael of Kent and England's current soccer manager Fabio Capello also feature.
