Rami Malek nails the all-black outfit
Rami Malek's getting very good at this fashion thing, isn't he? One moment, dressing like the ultimate 'who's that guy over there?' in a stock party scene; the next, making one of the safest (if not slightly forgettable) moves interesting again.
We mean the all-black outfit. As the perennial crutch when feeling world weary/having listened to Radiohead one too many times, it's a move that requires little thought. But Malek has given it thought. A lot, apparently.
At the Valentino couture show in Paris, the Bohemian Rhapsody star deployed one easy upgrade: a printed shirt. And it needn't be the sort-of-fun-but-also-quite-annoying-guy-at-the-BBQ sort of print. Instead, Malek opted for a quieter, monochrome take on Valentino logomania that didn't upset the outfit-at-large. This piece melded with all-black, but still managed to pop.
It's one of those minor pivots that makes for a Very Stylish Man. And there's a reason all-black remains popular: it's wearable and versatile, though perhaps a little too easy to follow the mould of a Central Saint Martin's grad who possesses unreasonable anger towards his parents.
Which means you get your own happier, Malek-approved version below.
