Back in January, lifestyle website Complex
voted Mick Jagger "Most Stylish Rockstar
." Jagger beat Prince

From his crazy stage antics to his bad boy edge, his style reflected his personality perfectly: it was something that needed to be tamed, but functioned best when it was wild."Even today, he wears silk scarves and suits with more rakish appeal than most men - and he's pushing 70."
