Everyone's looking at his wife anyway in that picture.

Are there any more modern politicians who dress with some color and look nice out there, without looking over the top like an African dictator?

 

Putin dresses very well, but his colors are generally staid and boring, not that there is inherently anything wrong with that.

Frank Underwood in seasons 1 and 2, the man looked sharp. Season 3 he dropped his game a bit.

Meh. The original character, Francis Urquhart, is much better...

Ian Richardson was my first exposure to Professor Henry Higgins, on Broadway back in the late 70s. He was just as elegant and smooth then.

Are there any leaders who are the most colorful but also the best dressed?

Understated elegance when dealing the consequences of his policies:

If no one mentioned Joe Biden I'm surprised. He always looks great and his combinations are always on point, and he's not even that wealthy (his net worth is below $1 million).

Paul Ryan is usually turned out well.

Yeah, in a Midwestern bland sort of way.
Ex- Speaker Boehner, also from the Midwest,
managed to dress with a certain flare usually
absent from the GOP.

Back when Speakers of the House knew how to dress: Tom Foley, Speaker from 1989 to 1995. During the Bush 41 years, I think he was one of the best-dressed top politicians the US has ever had:



Note tab collar, collar pin, red dots on tie, white linen hank. If politicians must dress in bland suits and white shirts, this is how to do it.

Foley looking senatorial, showing people how to wear a navy tie with a white bar stripe.



There is no reason Paul Ryan couldn't wear that. Instead, he goes for hideous light satins that Foley wouldn't have dreamed of:



He knew the value of a light gray suit and a black tie, which hardly anyone in DC wears nowadays (note the nice fit in the armhole and sleeve, clearly custom work):



Light gray PoW and dak navy tie:



Back when trad was the uniform of choice for top pols (the Bush 41 years); Foley did it better:



Two trad men. I like HW's suit better, but Foley's ensemble wins:



This is how Bush should have done it:



He could even do dark gray suit, whiteish shirt, and dark gray tie without being visually dull:




That, for me, is senatorial dress. If Congressmen want respect, they ought to dress like that.



Unfortunately for Foley, he followed the Italian fashions that began to conquer DC under the Clintons. He began wearing Armani- or Abboud-style 1990s ties. Here's Foley at the end of his reign, wearing a tie in those Italian fashions. If he'd stuck with trad, would he have kept his House seat?



As with many pols, after leaving office, Foley started dressing with more flair. He did not share the U. S. fear of the rope stripe:

I never noticed that Foley dressed that well, but thanks for all those pictures. He looks great.

 

On mobile or I would post pictures, but Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull looks fantastic. Of countries where embezzlement is frowned upon, he could perhaps be the best dressed.

Here is one guy most people here probably never heard about. Milo Djukanovic is de-facto boss of Montenegro, currently its Prime Minister, and before also president (he rules the country for last almost 30 years, to be clear). Given that he is very tall (around 2m), and generally good looking fellow, it is not hard for him to look sharp. The fact that he reportedly wears $150K watches also helps.
