It was impossible to avoid Benedict Cumberbatch in 2014. We couldn't get through our Facebook feeds, read a magazine or scroll through our favourite blogs without encountering the handsome Brit. (Not that we're complaining.)

Not only did he get engaged to fiancee Sophie Hunter and earn a Golden Globe nomination for his work in "The Imitation Game" but the 38-year-old actor also slayed us with his style.

From embracing #cumbervelvet to rocking dapper blue suits, Benny was always willing to have fun with his style.

So, to honour one of our favourite actors of the year, we take a look at the 20 times Benedict Cumberbatch made us weep with joy over his sartorial savvy.
