Once upon a time, way back in December 2019, a cream-colored fisherman sweater worn by Chris Evans in the Rian Johnson-directed whodunit Knives Out was enough of a menswear statement to catch headlines. (Though, of course, we’re still talking about cinematic fisherman sweaters.) Little did we know that, in the Knives Out cinematic universe, there was even more sartorial intrigue to come.
Over the last half-decade, we've seen Jordan Peele go from knee-slapping sketch comedy to genre-bending filmmaking. Along the way, especially over the last six months, another transformation happened: Peele has quietly morphed into one of the sharpest-dressed guys in Hollywood—and he's done it all while still looking like himself.
Alessandro Michele, who defined an era of menswear at the helm of Gucci, is out. “There are times when paths part ways because of the different perspectives each one of us may have,” the designer said in a statement released by Gucci parent company Kering. “Today an extraordinary journey ends for me, lasting more than twenty years, within a company to which I have tirelessly dedicated all my love and creative passion.”
Mark Cho spent the last 16 years amassing a spectacular watch collection. Cho, the co-owner of Drake’s and co-founder of highbrow suiting shop The Armoury, is more invested in fashion than your average collector. And so he delights in what others may have overlooked: he loves quartz watches because they’re thin, he’s tickled by a Frankensteined Nautilus, and he conducted a whole study on the ideal watch size for the wrist. He’s the sort of nontraditional watch collector, for example, who describes a Rolex GMT “Root Beer” as “eh.” And it’s worked: over the years, Cho put together the platonic ideal of a personal collection, stuffed with watches that would be the one oddball for many others. And now, he’s selling a large majority of it.
In a surprise announcement, Raf Simons, the Belgian fashion superstar and co-creative director of Prada, stated that he is shuttering his namesake brand. “I lack the words to share how proud I am of all that we have achieved,” he wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. The Spring-Summer 2023 show held in London in October will be the brand’s last. “I am grateful for the incredible support from my team, from my collaborators, from the press and buyers, from my friends and family, and from our devoted fans and loyal followers,” said Simons.
Kate Middleton is a green queen. The Princess of Wales, 40, wowed royal watchers in a bright green gown and one of Princess Diana’s iconic pieces of jewelry as she arrived with Prince William at the 2022 Earthshot Prize ceremony in Boston tonight. Wearing a long-sleeved, off-the-shoulder Solace London “Sabina” dress ($525) borrowed from rental platform Hurr, the royal matched the event’s green carpet as she and her husband arrived to cheers from a huge crowd of fans gathered outside the MGM Music Hall. The royal wore her hair down with soft waves, and added dazzling drop earrings and a familiar piece of...
Fat Joe Reflects on His Time With Big Pun, Losing the Grammy to Chance the Rapper and His Lost Jay-Z Collab
I was afraid of the old Fat Joe. As a young journalist in New York City in the early 1990s, I’d often see him at clubs and intimate rap shows and I knew that when the chubby Latino man with the uncompromising screwface scowl popped up in the spot with his green army jacket, blue jeans and brown Timberland boots, that trouble was around the corner. He always seemed on guard and ready to bring the ruckus—the muthafuckin’ ruckus. Anybody seen the exit door?
You and I are vicariously on vacation by watching season 2 of The White Lotus. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, naturally, are actually on vacation in Barbados. And, sheesh, have they been dressing. The most fashionable couple in the world earned, if only briefly, the more localized designation of most fashionable...
Southern Californian director Jamie Dack’s coming-of-age drama “Palm Trees and Power Lines” was crowned best film as the 40th edition of the Torino Film Festival wrapped Saturday. The award is worth €18,000 ($18,967). Dack, winner of the Sundance Film Festival directing award in the U.S. Dramatic section, also received Torino’s prize for best script, shared with her co-writer Audrey Findlay. Based on the 2018 short movie of the same name, Dack’s film stars Gretchen Mol, Jonathan Tucker and Lily McInerny, who was nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for best breakthrough performance for her role as a 17-year-old who has a life...
After production wrapped on Babylon, a 1920s Golden Age of Hollywood epic, actor Diego Calva received some advice from the film’s director, Damien Chazelle. “Go travel the world. Walk in your town with no problem. Your life is really about to change. I know you love movies, but sometimes I feel guilty because I am literally going to make it so you won’t be able to walk down the street,” Calva remembers the director telling him. “And I was like, ‘Come on, Damien. What are you saying?’ But maybe it’s going to be true.”
Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we'll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities. Jay-Z hardly ever puts a wrong foot with his watch collection. Whether he’s tracking down rare one-of-one Rolex pieces, wearing an interesting and unique vintage Patek Philippe Nautilus, or picking over the new releases to find the best of the best, he knows what he’s doing. Hov’s latest watch, a Richard Mille released in April of this year, fits the latter description. We’re used to seeing Richard Mille show off technical wizardry but this watch also tacks on the type of backstory you don’t usually see in watches.
Before last night’s GQ Men of the Year party in Los Angeles, GQ global editorial director Will Welch hosted an intimate dinner to toast Men of the Year cover stars Brendan Fraser and Zoë Kravitz. Like any great dinner party, it had a rocking guest list (RZA, Nathan Fielder, Pierce Brosnan, Emma Chamberlain), excellent fits (presented by Burberry), delicious drinks (presented by PATRÓN EL ALTO Tequila) and a beautiful venue (The West Hollywood EDITION). It was, in short, the perfect pregame before Fraser, Kravitz, and friends new and old swanned down the red carpet to the main event. Keep scrolling to see who pulled up and what everyone wore.
Go Behind the Velvet Rope at GQ’s 2022 Men of the Year Party. Last night in Los Angeles, GQ celebrated our 27th annual Men of the Year issue. It was only fitting, then, that Tinseltown’s finest pulled up to The West Hollywood EDITION in the hugest fits we’ve seen at this bash yet. Hosted by GQ global editorial director Will Welch and presented by Burberry, PATRÓN EL ALTO Tequila, Belvedere Vodka, and smartwater alkaline, the night kicked off when Men of the Year cover stars Brendan Fraser (wearing an elegant navy suit) and Zoë Kravitz (wearing an über-chic black gown) hit the red carpet. They led a VVVIP guest list including Travis Barker, Kourtney Kardashian, Anderson Paak, and Pierce Brosnan inside, where DJ Acyde set an impeccable sonic vibe behind the decks. MOTY isn’t an awards ceremony, per se—it’s more like a righteous and rollicking hang. But we had to give out the GQ Fit of the Night medallion (custom made by jeweler Greg Yuna for the occasion) to Pusha T. (The competition, needless to say, was fierce.) By the time The Kid Laroi hit the stage for a surprise performance, the party was only just getting started. And thanks again to The West Hollywood EDITION for keeping it bumping well into the night. Scroll down to get a peek inside.

When you hear the words “Timothée Chalamet cannibal romance,” perhaps you have a vision in mind: Timmy poised at the head of an elegant table, whipping a napkin around his neck, then delicately slicing into his dinner (people) with a nice Chianti. Bones and All is not that movie.

We're in peak fall, which means it's high time to lean into the earthy and deeper tones of the season. When it comes to dressing with an artful grasp on color, look no further than Seth Rogen. Time and time again, the beloved Canadian whips up outfits that are as delightfully shaded as his ceramics. Rogen tends to gravitate towards earthy tones regardless of the time of year: he's got cozy green cardigans and tonal terra cotta suits in the rotation, perhaps nodding to his beloved pastimes of cannabis and clay. But this month, he's leaned especially heavily into an autumn palette while giving his spin on the season's most wearable colors.
