Style File: Idris Elba Loves Himself Some Gucci

Posted on August 01, 2017

We don’t even know why we’re going to bother with critiquing these looks. You kittens aren’t gonna have it; your love of Idris is just that strong. But we would like to take this moment to remind you to remember your not-love of Gucci (judging by the past year of commentary in re: all things Gucci from the kitten kommentariat).

In fact, we’re going to make this really simple for you. When you scroll down, put your thumb over Idris’ head and pretend you’re looking at Jared Leto. Then come at us.


Idris Elba makes an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to promote his new movie “The Dark Tower” in NYC.

For real, you guys. He’s hot and he can make a lot of off-the-beaten-track looks work for him. This isn’t an attempt without its good points. The jacket is great. The shoes are fun. The capri-length track pants are NO.

We’ve figured it out. This man has a pants issue. Like his earlier outfit (and come to think of it, a whole lot of other ones we’re currently rifling through in our mental Idris files which shut up we’re not weird you’re weird), everything he’s got on works really well for him – except his pants, which are, we’re pretty sure, maternity wear.

We know. You don’t care. You just want to take his pants off rather than dissect what’s wrong with them. Fine. We can’t argue with that.
