James Corden Is Like, Really Stylish

No seriously.

One of Britain’s funniest exports, James Corden, is known to most people as the lovably pudgy host of the The Late Late Show, during which he sings along with everyone from Michelle Obama to Lady Gaga in his beloved "Carpool Karaoke" segments.

But the dude’s got style.

As the host of the jaw-dropping 2017 Grammy Awards, Corden changed not once, not twice — but three times. And though it’s not uncommon for a host to swap suits (female hosts often change every commercial break), rarely do dudes change into ensembles as memorable as Corden’s. Perhaps he got a little cocky after he closed Burberry's L.A. fashion show in 2015? Or he got a fashion boost from stylist Michael Fisher? Not to mention that Vogue's Anna Wintour is also a Corden confidant. Whatever it is, it's working. (Take note, Jimmys Fallon and Kimmel.)

The comedian kicked off the evening in a custom dusty rose suit by Tom Ford, which he followed up with a DIY Made to Order navy two-button peak lapel Marseille tuxedo by Gucci, featuring a blue-and-white snake patch, which he paired with an evening shirt with embroidered cuffs reading, “L'Aveugle Par Amour,” which translates to “Blind for Love.”

His third outfit was equally distinctive: a look from Stella McCartney’s new menswear label. The bespoke tailored suit featured a black jacket with a contrast red lapel and, to top it off, playing card print canvas slip-on sneakers.

Hands down his most stylish moment, however, was when he infiltrated Joe Jonas’ cool kid band, DNCE, as they took to the stage to introduce the tribute to the Bee Gees. Clad in a black-and-white T-shirt and matching pants — not to mention, that on-trend, half-up, half-down man bun — Corden proved he's got his finger on the fashion pulse.
