We Need To Talk About Ezra Miller, Our New Style Icon

When it comes to the red carpet, you can pretty much always count on the men attending to bring no drama or flair.

Flick through old award show galleries and it’s always the same suit and tie or tuxedo. The most you’ll ever see is the likes of Timothee Chalamet wearing a full look Haider Ackermann women’s suit. Or Jeff Goldblum’s penchant for printed Prada shirts and . fedora hats to liven things up.

That is until Ezra Miller walked onto the scene. For this style rebelling gender-bender, the rules clearly don’t apply.

Take, for example, his choice of outfit for the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald premier in Paris last night.

Now this is what you'd call a look. Sporting head-to-toe Moncler, Ezra’s black puffer attire was more Maleficent than Seinfeld's George Costanza. Everywhere your eyes wandered - from the skirt to the headpiece, gloves and floor length coat - the outfit oozed next-level volume.

Naturally he finished the look off with a deep red lip colour.

The piece in question is in fact one of the designs of Pierpaolo Piccioli, who collaborated with Moncler for its Genius Group collaboration series.

From Drake's cherry-red jacket (in 'Hotline Bling') to the shiny black Balenciaga number beloved by Rihanna, the puffer has become synonymous within rap and R’n’B musicians of late. Yet Ezra’s was vamp, camp and so totally OTT.

In other words, he just ripped up the red carpet rule book and proved that he’s fast becoming fashion's next daredevil. Think this is a one off? Take a look at the pink Toadette costume he wore to Comic-con earlier this year - this guy isn't messing around.

The floor-length puffer wasn't just a fashion statement, but a testament to Ezra’s sexuality. In 2012 he came out as queer, the same year he took on the role of the gay character, Patrick, in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Since the he's starred in three superhero films (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League), which makes him one of the few openly LGBTQ superheroes - a role in Hollywood that is still very much closely linked to the idea of heterosexuality.

Style icon? Yep. Queer icon? Of course. Based off that jaw-dropping, enchanted look, we can't wait to see what he does next.
