Are you tall? Dark? Handsome? How about funny? Well, even if you aren’t those things, it’s not a bad idea to adopt Sacha Baron Cohen’s classy look. That doesn’t mean dress up like Borat or Bruno – well, unless it’s Halloween, or you just want to give your friends a good laugh. When Sacha is playing himself, he is uber-stylish. Whether he’s walking around town with his fiance Isla Fisher and their baby girl, or walking the Red Carpet, the comedian photographs as well as he’s dressed. Here’s how to nab this very simple getup:
The Shirt: White Darley Tuxedo Shirt, $138, from Bergdorf Goodman (why so expensive? because it’s the centerpiece of this outfit, and should be high-quality)
The Blazer and Pants: Men’s Sharp Black Pinstripe Super 120′s Suit, $139, from VineMall.com
The Belt: D-Ring Leather Belt, $19.95, from Martin+Osa
Shoes: Any black dress shoes should work!
Make sure to open up the shirt’s first button, and also a little facial and/or chest hair will not dress you down in this case.
We’ve seen (and even replicated) the English TV actor’s preppy on-screen look — Chuck Bass ring any bells? Eh, so Gossip Girl may not be on your radar, but real life Ed Westwick has a style to be watched. Westwick has described his look as “glamorous indie rock.” How does one achieve that? Just see how the 22-year-old recently celebrated his birthday while bowling. Here’s how to get a strike in style:
The shirt: Black and gray striped v-neck long-sleeved shirt on sale for $18.99 (originally $39.90) from Mango.
The belt: Brown leather woven belt on sale for £8 (originally £14) from Burton.
The pants: Dark wash skinny denim jeans on sale for $36.90 (originally $69.50) from Levi’s.
The shoes: Navy suede loafers on sale for $49.98 (originally $70) from Aldo.

By now, Michelle Obama’s style is a bit of a dead horse. So it seems natural to move on to her history-making hubby, the President of the United States. From his pre-DC days to his televised Q&A’s, Pres Barack Obama consistently looks sharp. Maybe it’s just because he’s the first good-looking commander-in-chief that we’ve had in a while, or maybe it’s because of how epic his election was, but we’re incurably fascinated with every little charming detail of the Obama family, including their choice of clothes.
The Gloves: Black Dogliani Leather Gloves, $14.98, from Aldo
Designer Michael Bastian is bringing back the old school all-American classics. Why should you mirror his look? Clearly there’s something compelling about his style: Last year, AskMen.com named Bastian one of the Top 49 Most Influential Men and the Council of Fashion Designers of America nominated him for a 2009 menswear fashion award. Here’s how you can get his iconic look without the designer prices:
The shirt: Chaps blue and white contrast collar dress shirt on sale for $27.99 (originally $59) from Kohl’s.
The belt: Brown leather belt with silver hammered plate buckle from Burton, £14.
The watch: Collezione round face adjustable chain link watch from M&S, £25.

This NBA player doesn’t stop showing off when he’s done shooting hoops – take this look, for example. It’s way more detailed than you probably realize. Lebron James cares about how he appears and he spends quite a lot of time planning out every accessory and item of clothing (or at least his stylist does).
The Jacket: Stone-colored cotton mac by Stone Island, $545, FarFetch.com (any cheaper tan military jacket or trench coat should work, though)
The Shirts: Layer them. On bottom, wear this $16 Fine Jersey Ringers Shirt from American Apparel, and on top wear this $19.99 white polo from Express.
The Sunglasses: Shield Aviator Sunglasses, $44.50, G by Guess
