The full list: (the list is not by ranking ie there is no number 1 2, etc) can be found on the link below. I am trying to find the original source. So far all I have been able to locate are spanish articles. (good thing I can read Spanish). The link below is the CNN, Mexico.
It is no surprise to fans of Alexander Skarsgard that he is named as one of the best dressed. Fans have seen his fashion style change over the years. (yes I remember the grey sweater and green scarf days..)
A huge thanks to TrueBlood Spanish fan site for the find! Here is their article (also in Spanish)
Here is my attempt at translation:
