The 10 Most Stylish Men Over 50

White hot.

It's not always nice to be at the front end of the saying "age before beauty," but for Britain's Prince Philip, it means getting a leg up on his grandson, Prince Harry, in a most unlikely race.

GQ Magazine recently released its annual list of the best-dressed men in Britain and a surprising member of the royal family made a strong showing. The Duke of Edinburgh, 94, took the #12 spot, while the fun-loving younger royal, Prince Harry, 31, came in at #38 on the list. 

The senior royal looks effortless and at ease, whether he's stepping out in a tailored suit or a military uniform. Oh, and did we mention that he can rock a top hat?

"If we look as good as the Queen's consort does when we reach our tenth decade we will be very happy," GQ wrote. We couldn't agree more. 

While a number of younger, up-and-coming actors and personalities were on the list, so were quite a few post-50 gentlemen, including Sir Elton John, 68, and Ralph Fiennes, 53. 

There's just something about older men. To prove our point, here's our own Huff/Post50 list of some of the most stylish men over 50:
