David Bowie beats Beau Brummell to best-dressed Briton

Beating a stylish shortlist comprised of Elizabeth I and Beau Brummell, 66-year-old singer David Bowie has been crowned best-dressed Briton by BBC History Magazine

BY Olivia Bergin | 15 October 2013

2013 really has been singer David Bowie's year: he was the subject of the V&A's fastest-selling exhibition in history and has released his first album in over a decade, which saw him nominated for a Mercury Award.

So of course, Bowie is more 'current' than the other hopefuls in BBC History Magazine's shortlist for best-dressed Briton in history, which included the late Beau Brummell (founder of the modern suit, who came fourth) and Elizabeth I (ranked second).

Nominated by designer Wayne Hemingway, 66-year-old Bowie won with 48.5 per cent of the vote, which was cast by the British public.

The magazine's editor, Rob Attar, commented: "David Bowie has received many accolades in his glittering career, but surely none of them compare to being voted the best-dressed Briton of all time. Bowie had to overcome a king, two queens and a political heavyweight to triumph in our poll, and in doing so has struck a blow for 20th and 21st-century fashions".

Bowie was up against a shortlist compiled by various historians, fashion experts and curators.

As Hemingway recalls after the first time he saw Brixton-born Bowie perform in 1973: "I left the gig utterly blown away by Bowie's music and style (and already planning a change of hair colour): that gig marked the start of a lifelong obsession with music and fashion."

The best-dressed Briton shortlist and results:

1. David Bowie - 48.5 per cent
Championed by Wayne Hemingway, designer.

2. Elizabeth I - 13.6 per cent
Championed by Ulinka Rublack, author of Dressing Up: Cultural Identity in Renaissance Europe.

3. Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire - 9.5 per cent
Championed by Katy Werlin, fashion and textile historian specialising in the early modern period.

4. George 'Beau' Brummell - 8.4 per cent
Championed by Rachel Dickens, deputy art editor of BBC History Magazine.

5. Queen Alexandra - 7.1 per cent
Championed by Kate Strasdin, assistant curator at the Totnes Fashion and Textile Museum, Devon, and associate lecturer at Falmouth University.

6. Anne Messel - 5.3 per cent
Championed by Amy de la Haye, professor of dress history and curatorship at London College of Fashion.

7. Henry III - 2.5 per cent
Championed by Dr Benjamin Wild, historian of men's fashion and guest lecturer at the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design.

8. Ellen Terry - 2.2 per cent
Championed by Veronica Isaac, assistant curator in the Department of Theatre and Performance at the V&A, London.

9. Charles James Fox - 1.6 per cent
Championed by Dr Hannah Greig, lecturer in early modern history at the University of York and author of The Beau Monde: Fashionable Society in Georgian London.

10. Samuel Pepys - 1.3 per cent
Championed by Anna Reynolds, curator of paintings for the Royal Collection Trust and curator of the current exhibition, In Fine Style: The Art of Tudor and Stuart Fashion, at the Queen's Gallery, London.
