Hot politicians (they do exist, we promise), feisty football managers, handsome billionaries and even a couple of brooding fictional characters have us weak at the knees because of their oh-so-powerful personas. See the top 15 we’ve got a crush on…
Barak Obama was blowing out candles and noshing on cake over the weekend as he celebrated his 52nd birthday which got us thinking, he looks pretty good for his age, right? But what is it about Barak that has us blushing? Is it his dashing smile, his dance moves, his smart tailoring or the fact he’s one of the most powerful figures in the world? Bingo.
Men with a bit of clout are somehow automatically sexier than everyone else in the world so we’ve rounded up our favourite 15 hot influential men for you to drool over. From silver-haired hunk Chelsea manager José Mourinho and tech-savvy Hollywood fave Ashton Kutcher, to military man and royal hottie Prince Harry – see our powerful pick of the bunch…
Prince Harry’s royal status, military ranking and masses of family riches make him one of the most powerful men in the country. And if that’s not hot enough for you, think of the wild drives he could take us on in his army tank, the access we’d have to the crown jewels and the fact he’d make us a bonafide princess. What’s not to fancy?
Jon Hamm may be a smouldering powerful man of cinema but it’s his super-sexy mysterious Mad Men character Don Draper we’re going weak at the knees for. He drinks straight whiskey out of crystal cut glass, dresses in nothing but the best tailored suits in town and is a prolific womaniser. We want to be the one to change him though, obvs.
André Villas-Boas’ brooding stare and passionate football-related rages on the side of Spurs’ touchline make him one of the most sexy men in the game. Next time you’re fighting your boyfriend for the remote, check that Tottenham’s smoking Portugese manager isn’t on screen before you switch channels. He’s worth it, trust us.
José Mourinho is a silver fox, there’s no doubt about it. Another powerful and dashing Portugese football manager, he has us blushing at the back pages of the newspaper as we stare at the sports section pretending to be interested in Chelsea’s latest match. This finger-pointing, tactic-shouting hunk can red card us any day of the week.
Ashton Kutcher has modelled for Calvin Klein, acted in countless movie classics, Punk’d the likes of JT, Zac Efron and Beyonce and has now set up a whizz kid tech start-up company – is there nothing this man can’t do? Brains, beauty and one extreme GSOH rolled in to one super-successful film star, that’s dream man materal right there.
David Gandy’s super-steamy Dolce & Gabbana advert had us incredibly hot under the collar for months after it was released. How can you not find this Essex export totally irresistible? Not only is he the epitome of tall, dark and handsome but he’s the only man ever to nail the ‘supermodel’ status. Talk about poweful and pretty rolled into one.
David Beckham’s legendary football skills, sharp dressing and all round hot dad-ness have made him a seriously influential man. All it takes is one penetrating stare from the slick sports-star in his H&M boxer shorts and Becks has us well and truly under his spell.
Tom Ford may have been with his boyfriend for over 25 years but that doesn’t stop us having an insane crush on the talented tailoring King. Impeccably dressed, preened to absolute perfection (we’re loving his carefully trimmed stubble) and top of the fashion label tree, his success and style couldn’t be sexier. Think of all the incredible free clothes you could get too. Need we say any more?
So, this is how Brazilian men in power get their work done; tanned and topless. Mayor of Pelotas (a southern Brazilian city) Eduardo Leite shared this snap online which went viral, simply because he is SMOKING! Let’s hope Boris Johnson doesn’t get any ideas, we doubt it would have the same effect…
Robert Pattinson has been billed to play steamy S&M advocate Christian Grey from erotic novel Fifty Shades Of Grey so we thought it was only natural to direct our crush straight at him. The power hungry CEO with a wicked smirk and bewitching stare had us head over heels a couple of pages in, and now there’s a shot of Rob playing the part, we can’t get enough of Mr Grey!
George Clooney is not only one of the world’s best looking bachelors but he’s a massive political activist and works tirelessly to help the crises in the Darfur region of Sudan. George has picked up a Summit Peace Award to sit alongside his acting accolades and won’t stop until he’s made a difference. What a man.
Peter Jones commands that daunting room on Dragon’s Den like no other entrepreneur could, and for some strange reason, that makes us fancy him. Quite a lot. Is it his perfect teeth, his hordes of businesses or the fact he’s not easily impressed? A girl does always want what she can’t have…
Sam Branson not only describes himself as a “person dedicated to making the world a better place” (aw!) but he’s also heir to his business magnate dad Richard Branson’s billions, making him a pretty powerful man. Who wouldn’t want to make this down-to-earth, uber-rich, access-to-a-private-island blonde hunk their future husband?
Ben Rattray launched super-succesful online petition website Change.org in 2007 and has gone on to make the Time 100 list of the world’s most influential people. Also, incase you haven’t noticed, he’s pretty fit.
