Last week, GQ Magazine released its annual list of the 50 best-dressed men across the country for this year. We present the more prominent celebs who made the cut.

It's not just the ladies who hog the limelight on the red carpet.

On May 31, GQ India celebrated the most stylish males from across entertainment, sports and business with its Best Dressed List 2012.

Here are some of the biggest names from among the top 50 -- take the poll at the bottom of each page to let us know whether you think they deserve the best-dressed title!

Manish Malhotra

He's the go-to couturier for the rich and the famous, so it's hardly surprising that veteran fashion designer Malhotra is on the list -- he's always well turned out himself.
