* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ser Loras Tyrell has shiny armor, is immaculately groomed and loves his flowers. The last is justified, since his house's sigil is a rose. Loras wears beautiful clothing in Seasons 3 and 4 that enhances his good looks.

* WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic has Hoity Toity, a fashion expert from the big city who comes to critique Rarity's designs in "Suited For Success". [[UpToEleven His mane looks like a powdered wig.]]

* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'': [[Characters/XMenFilmSeriesProfessorCharlesXavier Professor X]] relishes being flawlessly handsome. He adores his hair and his clothes--even when he loses the former, he can still indulge in the latter--and he can be quite fussy about them (such as his NobodyTouchesTheHair moment in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', and needlessly straightening his sleeves before he goes on a 4.5-hour-long drive from Westchester to Langley in [[https://vid.me/nbkI this deleted scene]] from ''Film/XMenApocalypse''). Xavier spends a lot of money on his suits, and he can be a bit overdressed at times (e.g. his outfit when he visits an incarcerated Erik in ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' is so swanky that it can be worn at a wedding). In ''Apocalypse'', he looks more like an '80s fashion model than a teacher, and his translucent white shirt is a little too sexy for an academic setting. Like most dandies, Charles also surrounds himself in luxury and is very fond of the finer things in life, plus he had a hedonistic streak when he was younger (specifically a penchant for sex and booze).
* ''Film/VictorFrankenstein'': Finnegan's family is the third-richest in England, so his wardrobe is noticeably fancier in a SimpleYetOpulent way and more expensive than the rest of the cast's.
* In ''Film/AllAboutEve'': Addison [=DeWitt=]. He's got the posh British accent, the haughty disdain, and the pristine tux.

* In ''Film/GangsOfNewYork'' one of the gangs of the five points is described as "A right lot of dandies".
* Rick Moranis in ''Film/StreetsOfFire'', though his suits are actually quite ridiculous.



* The silent movie classic ''Film/TheGolem'' has Knight Florian, an effeminate fop that wears a ridiculous hat and is constantly twirling a rose.
* Alexis from ''Film/TheWildcat'' is always primping in mirrors. In one scene, after he's waylaid by bandits and left wearing nothing but his long underwear, he still pauses to comb his hair before walking on to his destination.
* In ''{{Film/Ned Kelly}}'' (1970), Mick Jagger wears a velvet tailcoat and frilly shirt that wouldn't look out of place at a gathering of Carnaby Street {{Scooter Riding Mod}}s.
** Similarly, TheHighwayman CaptainThunderbolt wears a sharp black suit, gambler tie and plantation hat.

* Jason King from ''Series/DepartmentS'' and ''Series/JasonKing'' was a major sex symbol of the Seventies. He was foppish and camp and spent most of his time drinking, smoking, lounging and shagging. Ultimately, he became the inspiration for AustinPowers.
