The Graham Norton Show 3 March 2023 - A Hand Tailored Suit

The Graham Norton Show 3 March 2023

Episode 20 of Series 30 of The Graham Norton Show is the first of two of a round-up of highlights from the recent series, featuring a galaxy of stars including, Taylor Swift, Daniel Craig, Eddie Redmayne, Lashana Lynch, Bono, Kate Hudson, Ian McKellen, Paul Mescal, Geena Davis, Stormzy, Lesley Manville, Colin Farrell, Bruce Springsteen and many more. Let's take a look at some of the outfits from the series.

Edward Enninful

Edward Enninful is a major player in the fashion world. He is editor-in-chief of British Vogue and European editorial director of Condé Nast. No wonder he looked incredibly dapper for his appearance on the show's couch. He chose a monochromatic black outfit of a shirt unbuttoned at the collar, an unusual double-breasted waistcoat, and slim-fitting trousers. He completed the look with a black velvet jacket with satin notch lapels for some textural interest. 

In this clip, Edward chats about fleeing Ghana at age thirteen and being scouted as a model in London at fifteen.



Big Zuu

Zuhair Hassan, or Big Zuu, is a British rapper, grime MC, songwriter, DJ and television personality. He is most recognised for presenting Big Zuu's Big Eats on the channel Dave. He appeared on the show in the first half of this season dressed extremely casually in a crew neck white t-shirt covered by a zipped-up tan-coloured hooded anorak, paired with camel-coloured chinos and chunky trainers that matched his coat. He accessorised with a thick gold bracelet.

In this clip, Big Zuu tells a funny story about Michel Roux.



David Tennant

Scottish actor David Tennant is best known as the tenth incarnation of the Doctor in the BBC television series Doctor Who. His other famous roles include Barty Crouch Jr. in the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, DI Alec Hardy in Broadchurch, and Crowley in the Amazon Prime series Good Omens. Tennant came on the show this season to discuss the December 2022 release of the drama Litvinenko. He looked very stylish in an unconventionally coloured lilac slim-fitting single-breasted suit with straight-legged trousers and a jacket featuring padded shoulders, notch lapels, and patch pockets. He paired it with a light pink classic collar shirt and a wacky multicoloured tie. He made the dapper look more casual by completing it with a pair of bright white trainers.

In this clip, David discusses his minister father and Billy Connolly's influence on his language.


Nadiya Hussain

Nadiya Hussain is a chef famous for winning the sixth series of The Great British Bake Off. This led to her hosting television cookery series, such as Nadiya's British Food Adventure and Nadiya's Family Favourites. She has also released cookbooks and children's cookbooks and baked a cake for Queen Elizabeth II's ninetieth birthday celebrations. When she came on the show this season, Nadiya donned a full-length velvet dress patterned with brightly coloured flowers. It featured a gathered high neckline, and the long sleeves were puffed at the shoulder seams. Her deep red hijab and lipstick echoed some of the colours in her dress.

In this clip, Nadiya shares hilarious footage of herself after some dental work.


Taylor Swift

Last year singer-songwriter Taylor Swift released her tenth studio album, Midnights. It broke several records on its release, gaining critical acclaim. Midnights became the best-selling album of 2022, topped the charts in twenty-eight territories, and had the most single-day streams of an album on Spotify. Swift appeared on the show to talk about her album, among other things. Taylor wore a high-necked sleeveless black ankle-length form-fitting dress with intricately patterned shimmering beads sewn down the length of the gown. She pulled her honey-blonde hair back in a low pony to show off her large gold hoop earrings. She finished the look with a pop of colour in a bold red lip.

In this clip, Taylor talks about how her 2012 song All Too Well became a short film.
