Outfit: custom Gucci by Alessandro Michele

Shoes: Gucci
Watch: Cartier

Today’s article required me some in-depth research, and one thing you should know about me is that I am so stubborn that if there’s any information about a topic that I’m interested in, you can rest assured that I will find out about it.

That’s how I traced back the people who worked on Paul Mescal‘s ensemble for The Fashion Awards 2021. Let’s talk about it.

On the red carpet, Mescal was seen wearing a light gold custom Gucci floral bouquet silk jacquard cocktail jacket, pink silk shirt, black trousers and black patent leather lace-ups.

He also accessorized his opulent ensemble with a yellow gold Panthère de Cartier pocket gem with two tsavorite eyes, black lacquer nose and spots and onyx on his left lapel and a Cloche de Cartier watch with a 18K yellow gold case, beaded crown set with a sapphire cabochon, yellow dial, sword-shaped hands, sapphire crystal.

The model also had a black alligator leather strap and a 18K yellow gold ardillon buckle. Sadly for everyone, it is part of a numbered limited edition of 100 pieces.

Cartier 1920 ClocheBell” Watch

I was able to find a GQ article by Zak Maoui that had nothing but praise for the watch and its history, here’s what it said: “Launched earlier this year, the Cloche de Cartier watch that Mescal chose to sport is a reimagining of the original diamond and onyx Cloche that was released in 1920 and has since been produced in several colourways and iterations. Its name derives from the service bell or “cloche” that is rung at a shop counter, due to its unique shape and it sits within Cartier‘s Privé line, alongside the Tank Asymétrique.”

One of the most interesting things about it is that it is conceived to be read either worn on your wrist or as a desk clock, which makes it so unique and desirable.

His groomer for the night was Nadia Altinbas, who made sure his curls were in place and his skin in check. He is an Irish actor after all, his paleness is part of who he is (and I’m very pale myself, even though I’m a Mediterranean woman).

The “Aftersun” actor switches stylists every once in a while and this time he was styled by Zadrian Smith and his colleague Sarah Edmiston.

They honored Paul‘s long-standing relationship with the Gucci brand, something he is still having even under the new creative direction of Sabato De Sarno (Paul was photographed just yesterday while attending the Gucci Cosmos evening Vernissage in London, we can tell that the bond is pretty strong).

He used to wear the more streamlined Gucci ensembles even while Alessandro Michele was at the helm, so he will surely fit into the new not over-the-top aesthetic brought in by Sabato, probably he’ll be even more involved as time goes by–a future campaign maybe? Fingers crossed.

As for Smith and Edmiston, they are proving their versatility that is highly required with the different range of clients they have. I’m a big fan of their work with Ariana DeBose and Winnie Harlow.
