FEMAIL reveals how the colourful blazer has become THE trend for celebrity men this season


Daniel Craig looked as dapper as ever when attending the world premiere of No Time To Die, which marks his final outing as James Bond.

The British actor, 53, who has appeared in five 007 films over 15 years, oozed sophistication in a stunning pink suede dinner jacket as he joined his co-stars at the Royal Albert Hall in London, this evening.

His statement garment, which he paired with a black bow tie and crisp white shirt, appears to follow the latest trend, according to celebrity stylist Rochelle White, who told FEMAIL that a colourful blazer is a must-have for A-listers this season.

Earlier this month, US actor Jason Sudeikis, 46, commanded attention in a blue Tom Ford velvet suit when attending the Emmys, while Canadian performer Seth Rogen attended the event in a scene-stealing orange tuxedo jacket.

Elsewhere, The Crown’s Josh O’Connor appeared dapper at the Met Gala in New York when wearing a baby blue blazer.

Stylist to the stars Rochelle said: ‘The colourful dinner jacket is making a comeback on red carpets and award shows this year due to the lack of these dazzling events in 2020. 

‘I feel that this piece of clothing is a great way for men to add a pop of colour to formal wear in a comfortable non-obvious way and it has brought back some life and vibrancy. 

‘It is a great way for actors to show their personalities and even maybe a change of style, it could be a way of them embracing their new found freedom and express it in this way.’ 

She continued: ‘I think it is a trend at the minute and one that will potentially be around into 2022. No one wants to be seen in black and white outfits and are looking to be more adventurous and daring.’

It has been a long road to this evening’s premiere after the film’s release date was delayed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The film, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, was originally scheduled for release in April 2020, but was pushed back to November before the release was changed once again to April 2021 in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

The release date was finally settled for September 30 in the UK followed by October 8 in the US.

Ahead of the release, Daniel and some of his fellow star cast members joined the Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky to talk about the movie.

Daniel told Chris: ‘After the last one, I thought that was it. I thought, “I can’t do any more of these”. I got a bit of a rest and we kind of talked about what we wanted to do with this last movie and how big we wanted to go, and it felt right, and I just got really excited about it, and I can’t wait for people to see it.

‘I saw a rough cut of it about a month after we finished, which is really rough, because there’s no special effects or anything. When you see that version of it, you just hope and pray that it makes sense, and it did.

‘Once you get the effects, and you get the music, Hans Zimmer’s done the music, and it’s just incredible. The story holds together. Everyone is just turning in brilliant performances, and I think it’s quite special.’

Speaking about the enforced delay to the film’s release due to the pandemic, the actor said: ‘It’s odd enough with a movie, when you’ve finished it, and you put it out and you kind of go, ‘Woah, I hope it’s good.’

‘But when there is a two-year gap between finishing it and putting it out, it just makes things even stranger.’
