Gene Wilder's most stylish onscreen looks

Comedy genius Gene Wilder has sadly passed away at the age of 83 after battling Alzheimer's, going off to Join David Bowie, Prince, Alan Rickman and all the other legends we've lost this year.

From Blazing Saddles to The World's Greatest Lover, take a look at Gene Wilder's best onscreen looks below and see if you agree...
