Esquire magazine has chosen Britain's Prince Charles as the world's best-dressed man. The publication described the 60-year-old heir to the throne as perfectly turned out, adding that admirably, the prince keeps his wardrobe in appropriate style; we're told he has a room laid out like a tailor's shop, The Guardian reported.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Wearing Clark Kent glasses and a natty gray suit, Bill Nighy looks nothing like the tentacle-faced sea captain he portrays in "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End." Nor does he resemble the vampire lord he played in "Underworld" or the zombie he embodied in "Shaun of the Dead." He seems nothing like the cuckold husband he was in "Notes on a Scandal" or the washed-up rocker he played in "Love, Actually." Nighy, 57, disappears into each of these characters, just as...
