The Graham Norton Show 21 October 2022

For Episode 4 of Series 30 of The Graham Norton Show, Graham welcomed British rapper Stormzy to chat and perform his new single, Hide and Seek. American actress Geena Davis appeared to talk about her memoir, Dying of Politeness. Graham also greeted British actor Stephen Graham, who is currently starring in the true crime drama The Walk-in. Finally, Strictly judge Motsi Mabuse came on the show to promote her autobiography, Finding My Own Rhythm. Let's take a look at some of the outfits from this week's show.

Graham Norton

This week Graham wore a much more muted look than usual. He donned a dark grey slim-fitting single-breasted suit with notch lapels. The lapels sported decorative stitch work for added interest. He paired it with a classic collar blue and white striped shirt, and for a pop of colour, he included a bright red cross-hatch patterned tie. 




Michael Owuo Jr., professionally known as Stormzy, is a British rapper, singer and songwriter. He first came to prominence in 2014, winning the Best Grime Act at the MOBO Awards and again in 2015. He released his debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer, in 2017. It was the first grime album to reach number one on the UK Album Charts and won British Album of the Year at the 2018 Brit Awards. He released his second album, Heavy Is the Head, in December 2019. His most well-known single is Vossi Bop. 

On the show, Stormzy looked smart but relaxed in a monochromatic outfit of a camel-coloured cashmere sweater and slightly lighter slim-fitting straight-leg trousers. He continued the casual feel of the look with a pair of white trainers.

In this clip, Stormzy talks about how he got the famous Banksy bulletproof vest that he wore on stage at Glastonbury and provoked speculation about Banksy's gender!



Geena Davis

American actress and producer Geena Davis is famous for starring in films such as TootsieThe FlyBeetlejuiceThelma & LouiseA League of Their OwnThe Long Kiss Goodnight, and the Stuart Little franchise. She won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for The Accidental Tourist. On television, Davis is known for her roles in Commander in ChiefGrey's Anatomy, and The Exorcist. She founded the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media in 2004 and the annual Bentonville Film Festival in 2015. 

During her interview, Geena dressed in a black pinstripe single-breasted slim-fitting shawl lapel pantsuit paired with a cream pussy-bow collar and flowy cuff shirt to make the outfit softer and more feminine. To give her silhouette shape, she cinched the waist of the jacket with a wide black leather belt. 

This clip shows Geena telling the story of how Brad Pitt got his first film role in Thelma and Louise. She then reveals who the other auditionees for the part were. 



Stephen Graham

He has also appeared in other films, including SnatchGangs of New YorkPublic EnemiesThe Irishman, and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies On Stranger Tides and Dead Men Tell No Tales

On the programme, Stephen donned a slim-fitting single-breasted dark brown suit. The jacket had added interest with contrasting satin lapels. He combined the suit with a black shirt and no tie to keep the ensemble relaxed and less formal. 

In this clip, Stephen chats about being mistaken for Craig from Big Brother and having a prank played on him on set by the crew of The Walk-in.
