The Graham Norton Show 25 November 2022

For Episode 8 of Series 30 of The Graham Norton Show, Graham welcomed former James Bond actor Daniel Craig to promote his latest film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Strictly Come Dancing contestant, Fleur East appeared. Graham greeted Mastermind presenter Clive Myrie. Acting legend Ian McKellen and comedian John Bishop also came on the show to discuss Mother Goose, which they appear in together, and Charlie Puth performed his new single, Loser. Let's take a look at some of the outfits from this week's show.

Graham Norton

This week, Graham chose his usual slim-fitting single-breasted suit in a blue and orange plaid pattern. The jacket had classic notch lapels and padded shoulders for a more tailored and angular look. He combined the suit with a classic collar light blue shirt and a patterned orange silk tie to enhance the orange in his suit's pattern and the pocket square in his jacket. Although containing his usual mix of interesting colours and patterns, the outfit was more muted than on other shows. 

Daniel Craig

He has appeared in many other movies, including ElizabethLara Croft: Tomb RaiderRoad to PerditionLayer CakeThe Golden CompassCowboys & AliensThe Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Knives Out. He is married to fellow actor Rachel Weisz. 

On the show, Daniel lived up to his James Bond alter ego by looking dapper and polished in a greige wide peak lapel double-breasted suit with tortoiseshell buttons. He paired it with a blue classic collar shirt and a complimentary dark grey tie, and a silvery pocket square.
