Eddie Redmayne and Benedict Cumberbatch are going head to head to be named the most stylish Brit.

The good friends have been nominated for the British Style Award, with those in the running for the prize selected by members of the British Fashion Council. Other celebrities on the shortlist include James Bond stars Daniel Craig and Naomie Harris, actors Emily Blunt, Sienna Miller, Sam Claflin and Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie, as well as musicians FKA twigs, Florence Welch and Tinie Tempah and artist Grayson Perry.

Each nominee was selected for being "an individual who most embodies the spirit of British fashion and is an international ambassador for London as a leading creative fashion capital".

The winner will be decided by public vote and announced during the British Fashion Awards on 23 November (15) in London.

Nominees for the other prizes were confirmed earlier this month (Oct15), with a host of big names set to be honoured. Christopher Kane, J.W. Anderson and Victoria Beckham are vying for the womenswear designer gong, with the men's version of the prize going to either E. Tautz, J.W. Anderson or Tom Ford. Also of note was the red carpet category, which includes Christopher Kane,

Erdem, Roksanda and Tom Ford. Georgia May Jagger, Jourdan Dunn and Malaika Firth are in the running to be named best model.

Eddie and Benedict have some experience of competing against each other for awards. They went up against each other for best actor at every major acting ceremony in 2015 for their roles in The Theory of Everything and The Imitation Game respectively. Eddie beat Benedict to the Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA prizes for his portrayal of physicist Stephen Hawking.
