The Élysée Palace was distraught this week as GQ declared Nicolas Sarkozy to be the third worst-dressed human man of 2009.
Clearly incorrect. Ever since his election, I've been struck Sarkozy's consistent elegance: impeccably turned out in dark Dior suits, crisp neutral shirts and sharp understated ties. There may not be too much variation, but anyone with a uniform of dark Gallic style is fine by Mr Christopher.
Who looks better: Obama or Sarkozy?
Brown or Sarkozy?
Carla and Nicholas is obviously a closer call – or in fact, an obliteration by the First Madame – but he at least measures up (height jokes aside):
He may not be quite so slim as he would like but when it comes to couture, Sarko is smooth as a button and sharp as a stick. He's certainly not BAD.
David Cameron as best dressed #8? Nothing wrong with him, but he's guilty of the odd pink shirt, crap tie and podgy waistband. The guy is one step away from brown shoes with a grey suit.
Even though it's a horrible 'power photo', imagine how thrilled we would be if Dave, Gordy or anyone else in British politics stepped off a plane looking like this (left).
I'd like it anyway. So hush your mouth GQ. And please don't put your own editors in the top ten. It looks a little biased.
