You may have thought it was all about the ladies trying to outdo each other on the red carpet of Sunday night's BAFTAs, but three leading men, Bradley Cooper, George Clooney and Eddie Redmayne, were at it too as they competed to look the most swoonful in a suit.

The threesome all dusted off their best suits and sent many a female pulse racing when they strutted their very dapper stuff down the red carpet outside London's Royal Opera House.

Bradley - formally crowned the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine in 2011 - gave a lesson in how to dress like a classic gentleman.

He was there to find out if he had won the award for Best Leading Actor for his role in 'Silver Linings Playbook', in which he stars with fellow nominee Jennifer Lawrence.

George jetted in direct from Tinseltown, despite not being nominated for any awards and posed with Ben Affleck on the red carpet - both complete with beards.

Their British rival came in the form of 'Les Miserables' star Eddie Redmayne , who brought the suited and booted look bang up to date in a slim fitting DJ.

We'd have any of them, thank you very much.
