Dandyism in literature & film. [28 Jul 2005|12:39pm]
I want to compile a list of fictional dandies. Who should be on the list?

Here's some I can think of an edited list so far:

Hercule Poirot (from Agatha Christie's novels)
Des Esseintes (from Against Nature)
Gaff (from Blade Runner)
Narcissus (from the Greek myth)
Sir Percy Blakenley (from The Scarlet Pimpernel)
Henry Wotton (from Picture of Dorian Grey)
George Osborne (from Vanity Fair)
Gilderoy Lockhart & Lucius Malfoy (from Harry Potter)
Lestat (from Interview with the Vampire)
Bertie Wooster (from P.G. Wodehouse's writings)

Would Sherlock Holmes be a dandy? This will be a fun list.

THIS LIST IS IN PROGRESS! So don't ask me why so-and-so is missing, I'm trying to build the list, so feel free to add.
