Alexander Skarsgård is Named One of the Best Dressed Men of 2011

True Blood’s ‘Eric’ Makes GQ UK’s Top Ten:

Alexander SkarsgardThough the saying may be that ‘the clothes make the man,’ Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman) is one of few men that clothed or unclothed, always looks well-dressed.

Skarsgård was recently named one of the ten Best Dressed Men of 2011 by the British edition GQ. He is in splendid sartorial company in sharing the top ten with George Clooney, Javier Bardem, and Zac Efron, to name but a few.

Besides cutting a fine silhouette in Tom Ford at the 2010 Emmy Awards, Skarsgård has been spotted around Los Angeles rocking pieces by high-end designers including Prada, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Marc Jacobs.

Casual Sophistication:

Despite the designer labels, much like his True Blood alter ego, Viking vampire Eric Northman, Skarsgård has a casual sophistication about his style. He’s also not opposed to wearing a more mainstream brand like Gap. When asked about what he prefers to wear off-camera, Skarsgård has said that he when he can, he likes to support  Swedish designers by donning designs by Whyred and  Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, among others.

Five-times voted Sweden’s sexiest man prior to his success in HBO mini-series Generation Kill and True Blood, Skarsgård continues to be noticed for more than just his acting talents. US-based design company Hickey Freeman recently asked him to be a part of a new ad campaign. We posted the outcome of that collaboration last month and our favorite Viking looks quite debonair in the shot.

We congratulate Alex on this stylish recognition and look forward to what he’ll bring to the role of Eric this season!
