His sister-in-law topped the Vanity Fair list, but Prince Harry's not that far behind in the style stakes -- he's ditched the stuffy suits and prim brogues that most royals favour, in preference of a smart but easygoing vibe.

The only other male royal to make it besides Harry was Prince Heinrich von und zu Furstenberg, an entrepreneur of noble German lineage.

His forte is menswear, so we figure British designer Ozwald Boateng knows a thing or two about dressing up! Unlike some eccentric couturiers, he prefers the smart and stylish route to eliciting jaw-dropping reactions (read Marc Jacobs in a skirt!).
