After grabbing the world's sexiest man title, Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp has now emerged as the most stylish man too, according to a new magazine poll.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star has topped GQ magazine's poll of the most stylish males, Contactmusic reported.
The 46-year-old saw off competition from stars like Brad Pitt, Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson, rapper Jay-Z and Gossip Girlstar Ed Westwick, who all featured on the list of 25 Most Stylish Men in the World, 2010.
Depp was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive last year, scooping the prestigious honour for the second time and the most stylish title now has added another feather to his well-adorned cap.

Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp will team for a feature film version of the classic 1960s soap opera “Dark Shadows.”
The film will shoot in the fall, with Depp set to play the vampire Barnabas Collins, according to producer Graham King.
“We’re actually going to shoot that film next September/October with Tim Burton and Johnny,” King confirmed in an interview Friday in Los Angeles.
To guarantee a fall release, King is already prepping production with screenwriters.
“We’ve been working on the script a lot, even though he’s working on ‘Alice,’” King said. “We’ve been given a script. John August wrote the first screenplay. We’re making some changes, but the film’s going to be in production …”
From 1966 to 1971, “Dark Shadows” was a daytime gothic soap opera on ABC, featuring Jonathan Frid as Collins. NBC attempted a prime-time series reboot in 1991 that stared Ben Cross.
Captain Jack Sparrow isn’t the only daring adventurer in Johnny Depp’s repertoire, as the actor plans on bringing his own unique spin to the historical Mexican revolutionary hero Pancho Villa.
According to Variety, Depp will star as Villa in an upcoming biopic titled “Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman with Six Fingers,” which is easily one of the longest, most terrific titles I’ve heard for a prominent film in the past couple of years.
Depp will share the screen with Salma Hayek, who is in “advanced talks” to star in “Pancho Villa,” most likely as the titular woman with six fingers. Does that mean she only has six fingers total, or six fingers on one hand ala “The Princess Bride”? All six fingers are crossed for the latter.
The film comes courtesy of Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica and screenwriter Gordan Mihic, based on the novel “The Friends of Pancho Villa” written by James Carlos Blake. Blake’s book focuses on Villa as not only an excellent and accomplished soldier, but also as a big fan of “dancing, partying and making love.”
If you’re wondering about how “The Friends of Pancho Villa” might affect Depp’s upcoming work on the next “Pirates of the Caribbean” film, don’t worry too much. According to Variety, the film isn’t expected to begin production until 2011 due to Depp’s prior commitments.
