Late-Night Style: The Best- and Worst- Dressed Talk-Show Hosts

As Jimmy Fallon takes over The Tonight Show and Seth Meyers vacates the "Weekend Update" desk for Late Night, we look at the fashion decisions of the legends of late-night TV.

The past few years have seen a lot of changes in the world of late-night talk shows. There was the whole Jay vs. Conan saga, the return of Arsenio Hall, and, of course, the new kid on the block, Seth Meyers, who makes his debut on the talk-show circuit on February 24. But no matter how many hosts come and go, there's one constant: These guys are always in a suit. Some of them know how to rock it, while others . . . well, let's just say it's a good thing they can hide behind their desks.

From Johnny to Jimmy, here are the best- (and worst-) dressed men of late night.

Ed Sullivan, The Ed Sullivan Show, 1948–1971

You would think Sullivan's raised shoulders and stiff posture would work against him, but the TV icon always looked sharp in simple suits and classic ties. Fun fact: This is the suit he wore when the Beatles made their final appearance on his show in 1965.
