Style is a subjective topic, yet a few names can always be found among myriad lists of the silver screen’s most fashion-forward males. (Think Donald Glover, David Beckham, Timothee Chalamet and the always-joyful Jeff Goldblum).
However, thanks to his recent Bohemian Rhapsody promo tour, Rami Malek is soaring up the ones-to-watch chart. In fact, the Egyptian-American actor, who last week took home a Golden Globe for his turn as Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic, looks well on his way to becoming 2019’s best-dressed man, if his recent spate of appearances is anything to go by.
The 37-year-old is the reigning king of a refreshingly smart-casual aesthetic on the red carpet, whether he’s decked out in knitted polos teamed with sharply tailored suits, or bomber jackets juxtaposed against a symphony of prints. Malek has been working with celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati in recent years, with the fashion maven also helping stars such as Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds and Tom Hiddleston perfect their outfits for the camera’s gaze.
Favouring labels such as Dior Homme, Berluti and Givenchy, Malek’s go-to ensembles are often prime examples of how to masterfully toe the line between unexpectedly edgy and timelessly refined, offering inspiration for both workwear and off-duty looks.
