Back in October, we wrote a lot of words about how 2017 was set to be a launching pad for the rest of Harry Styles’s career. Seven months in, we can officially say: so far, so good! Dude released an album (which is already getting Grammy buzz), landed a late-night talk show residency, performed on „SNL,“ defended teen girls in his Rolling Stone cover story, announced a world tour and walked on water. But let’s not forget about his film „Dunkirk,“ the clandestine Christopher Nolan project for which he cut his hair last year and for which Nolan compared Styles’s performance to Heath Ledger’s in Nolan’s „The Dark Night.“ With „Dunkirk“ due out July 19, the movie has officially commenced its press tour — which means! We have grade-A fashion on the way, and we’ll be updating this post as the red carpet premiere circuit continues.
To kick off official festivities, Styles showed up to London’s Odeon Leicester Square in a custom Gucci dark blue-green wool mohair double-breasted suit — no tie, with a white shirt unbuttoned. This is an understated departure from the bubblegum (or, depending on who you ask, „appetite-suppressing“) pink and embroidery we’ve grown used to seeing him inhabit. But waiiiiitttt, check out his shoes — also Gucci, from the house’s Cruise 2018 collection — which feature lizard detail and embroidered dragon appliqué.
This also happened!
Not a bad way to get things started, huh?
