The Graham Norton Show 11 November 2022

For Episode 7 of Series 30 of The Graham Norton Show, Graham welcomed legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen to promote his new album Only the Strong Survive. Anya Taylor-Joy, known from the hit series The Queen’s Gambit, appeared to talk about her latest film, comedy-horror The Menu. Graham also greeted comedian and chat show host Mo Gilligan, and Florence and the Machine performed their single, Dream Girl Evil. Let's take a look at some of the outfits from this week's show.

Graham Norton

Graham's clothes were subtle this week, sporting a traditional look of a single-breasted slim-fitting grey and black checked suit. He combined it with a dusky pink spread collar shirt and a coordinating maroon silk tie. Perhaps his outfit echoed the tone of the occasion, Remembrance Day. Check out his look in this clip.



Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. Nicknamed The Boss, his career has spanned six decades. He is known as one of the creators of the heartland rock style that combines rock music with stories of working-class America. He has released twenty studio albums and sold over one hundred and fifty million records worldwide. He is one of the best-selling music artists in the world and has received twenty Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, and an Oscar. 

On the show, Bruce dressed in a black single-breasted slim-fitting suit with subtly peaked lapels, the main lapel part being made out of a contrasting satin fabric. For a more edgy rockstar vibe, he left the jacket open to show off his rich brown snap button shirt, unbuttoned down his chest revealing tanned skin and stacked silver chain and beaded necklaces.

In this clip, Springsteen tells a story about performing a concert surrounded by locusts. 



Anya Taylor-Joy

British-American actress Anya Taylor-Joy is best known for her role as Beth Harmon in the Netflix series The Queen's Gambit. She began her career on television and moved into films in 2015, starring in the horror movie The Witch.

Taylor-Joy has also had roles in the fifth and sixth seasons of Peaky Blinders and played the titular role in the period drama Emma. For The Queen's Gambit, she won a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award.

During her interview, Anya looked stunningly 70s in sheer black floral lace and beaded low-rise bell bottom trousers with contrasting white lace at the bottom. She paired it with a matching sheer black lace vest with a nude lining that she left unbuttoned to show off a black bikini-style bra top. She finished the outfit with white patent platform boots, minimal accessories and nude nails.
