If you followed awards season just a little bit, one actor may have stood out for his attitude and style.

Yes, we're talking about the irresistible—and incredibly talented—Eddie Redmayne.

In the spring summer 2015 issue of British GQ Style, the Oscar winner proves yet again that he very well could be one of Hollywood's best dressed men.

Described as the "new British celluloid icon," Redmayne looks handsome in a V-neck sweater and navy blue jacket. Inside, he goes business casual with denim jeans, a matching sweater and an unzipped jacket.

While the looks may get the ladies swooning, the happily married actor is ready to transform himself when he takes on the role of transgender woman Lili Elbe in the upcoming flick The Danish Girl.

The film tells the story of the painter who made history in 1931 when she underwent what is believed to be the first male-to-female reassignment surgery.

"People go, ‘Oh, are you doing this transformative thing?' It's not a concerted choice," he explained in the new issue on sale Thursday. "I think it will be a unique experience."

He added, "There is so much I need to investigate…It's a very famous story within the transcommunity."

Just last month, the first photo of Redmayne in character surfaced online. Wearing a short, curly red wig and bright red lipstick, the actor undergoes quite the new look.

While some may see it as a tough task, the Brit is simply ready to channel yet another extraordinary person on the big screen.

"If your dream is to tell stories, interesting stories, play interesting people, then I have been incredibly lucky to portray Stephen Hawking and Lili," he shared. "They are both extraordinary people and as an actor it doesn't get better than that."
