Ten Most Stylish Movies of all time

Popular men's magazine GQ lists its most stylish movies of all time.
 
Here's a look!

There's six decades between these movies but they all have one thing in common: iconic style.

1. Bobby (1973)

Sharp blazers, striped ties, a leather jacket and skinny turtlenecks -- Rishi Kapoor is all pedigreed polish in this iconic film.

There's a reason we're not mentioning a young Dimple Kapadia -- that could take up an entire issue.

2. Jewel Thief (1967)

The look for this film was defined by sharp suits, checked shirts, boutonnieres and houndstooth hat.

Add to that Dev Anand's languid saunter, his trademark sideways glance and flirtatious smile, and this slick crime thriller almost turns into a homage to James Bond.

3. Don (1978)

Don is the ultimate fashion reference point for the 1970s, with its wide-lapel three-piece suits, flared trousers, a bow tie or two and yellow tinted sunglasses -- pulled off in a way only Amitabh Bachchan could manage.

In comparison, the 2006 remake of the film doesn't quite cut it.

This one harks back to a time when girls were ladies, boys were gentlemen and a good suit was indispensable.

A suave Dilip Kumar and a well-dressed Raj Kapoor perfectly complement the gorgeous Nargis, their shared love interest.

A crisp kurta with an embroidered shawl draped over one shoulder -- worn as only a Nawab could.

This period film is restrained elegance at its best.

Raj Kumar sported some exceptionally smart tailoring in this film: black suit and tie, white shirt, pocket square, shiny brogues -- almost a pre-dated ode to Dolce & Gabbana.

Long before Johnny Depp rocked the neckerchief, Dev Anand was doing it.

Even more salient was his nonchalant swagger.

8. Dil Chahta Hai (2001)

A new set of attitudes for the new millennium, this film wore its liberalism on its sleeve.

Trendy casual wear and devil-may-care attitudes completed the look.

A normally vanilla look -- cotton shirt and chinos -- got an upgrade with a tweed blazer and bucket hat.

Mr. India may have been broke, but he certainly was stylish.

Black-tie, bombers, up-turned collars and metallic suits -- Teesri Manzil captured Shammi Kapoor at his stylish best. Elvis-style moves included.
