Ryan Seacrest making beautiful music with Burberry for 'American Idol' finale

Ryan seacrest burberry Say what you will about Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze, "American Idol" judge Ryan Seacrest has had a favorite all season long -- on his back, at least.

Our sister blog All the Rage reports that Seacrest has been exclusively dressed by fashion house Burberry this year. That's some well-heeled bantering going on with Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi

Seacrest has had a personal hand in fabric selection, liaising directly with Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey. Each of the host's suits even bears the inscription "To Ryan from Christopher 2010."

He's not the only "Idol" regular who likes expensive suits. At the start of her reign as judge, DeGeneres reportedly asked for $150,000 in wardrobe budget for custom pieces like pants and vests. 

For full coverage of this week's big finale, look no further than our own Idol Tracker.
