Richard Madden won the Most Stylish Man gong at the 2019 British GQ Men of the Year Awards on Tuesday night.

The Bodyguard star was handed the award by singer Rita Ora at the magazine's annual bash held at the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall in London.

Madden looked dapper in a midnight blue bespoke suit designed by Hugo Boss, which featured a velvet jacket and classic black tuxedo trousers.

During his acceptance speech, the 33-year-old also touched upon his new role in Marvel superhero movie, The Eternals, and joked that his friends don't think he deserves the title of Most Stylish Man.

"My friends all find it most amusing that I've won this award that they don't really think I deserve. Actors spend most of the time wearing other people's clothes, so I'd like to thank Hugo Boss for this," Madden quipped. "For the next few months, I will be wearing mostly a tight blue cosmic superhero costume, so not much chance of me winning again next year."

Madden's Rocket Man co-star Taron Egerton won the award for Best Actor, while Andrew Scott was named Standout Performance of 2019 for his role as The Priest in Fleabag.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who created and starred in the BBC show, bestowed him with the award, and jokingly praised Scott's performance as "a combustion of charisma, grace, nuance, and complexity... culminating in a 162 per cent rise in religious pornography watched in the U.K."

Nicole Kidman won Best Actress, 16-year-old Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg was given the Game Changer accolade, and pop icon Kylie Minogue was handed the Icon Award by music legend Tom Jones.
