The World’s Most Elegantly Dressed

Filed under: ,

Nigerian-born artist, aesthete and aRude magazine publisher Iké Udé (above) is one of the last of the old-school dandies – old school as in Oscar Wilde and Baudelaire. His new book, Style File: The World’s Most Elegantly Dressed, is a compendium of extraordinarily-attired people, but it shouldn’t be confused with just another Best Dressed list. To make Udé’s grade you have to have a measure of eccentricity, verve and idiosyncrasy in your ensembles that can’t merely be purchased at the nearest shop, no matter how chic. Some of the people in the book are well known, others not so much, but they all have incredible in style in common. See the gallery for pix of some standouts; we’ve focused on the men since they get less exposure than their female counterparts in this regard – plus one major babe.
