Richard Madden at the "1917" Premiere - London

Stylist: Gareth Scourfield
Outfit: Armani
Groomer: Charley McEwen
Shoes: Armani

With “Eternals” approaching, actor Richard Madden is bound to make even more people fall in love with him and as people know, entering the big realm of Marvel is no small feat, especially coming from another big franchise such as Game Of Thrones.

While we patiently wait for the vast variety of red carpets that are probably following, let’s talk about his look for the UK premiere of the movie “1917“, held at Odeon Luxe Leicester Square on December 04, 2019 in London, England.

Madden wore an Armani midnight blue tuxedo with satin peak lapel, white dress shirt with white mother of pearl buttons, a lighter midnight blue silk bow tie and patent leather lace-up shoes.

Groomer/hairstylist Charley McEwen used Tom Ford Beauty products to even out Richard‘s skin and Oribe products for his hair.

As always, his stylist Gareth Scourfield made sure to make him look exquisite and there is no such thing as great British style (Madden could really play the next James Bond for all that matters).

1917 is a 2019 British war film directed and produced by Sam Mendes, who co-wrote the film with Krysty Wilson-Cairns.

Partially inspired by stories told to Mendes by his paternal grandfather Alfred about his service during World War I, the film takes place after the German retreat to the Hindenburg Line during Operation Alberich, and follows two British soldiers, in their mission to deliver an important message to call off a doomed offensive attack. 

Operation Alberich was the codename of a German military operation in occupied territory in France during World War I. It was a planned withdrawal to new positions on the shorter, more easily defended Hindenburg Line which took place between 9 February and 15 March 1917 and which eliminated the two salients (a salient is surrounded by the enemy on three sides, making the troops occupying the salient vulnerable) which had been formed in 1916, between Arras and Saint-Quentin and from Saint-Quentin to Noyon, during the Battle of the Somme.

It was a bold, strategic retreat that would allow German troops to regroup and establish a shorter, more fortified frontline called the Hindenburg Line, while the Allied forces would assume that their enemy was on the run. This way, British troops would unknowingly fall into a trap, vulnerable to the fortified position created by Alberich.

In order to ensure that the British troops would not have access to the resources left behind, the Germans employed a “scorched earth” policy. This meant destroying anything that may turn out to be useful for the Allied forces, including towns, roads, and bridges. Additionally, the Germans left rigged explosives and other dangerous booby traps in order to make it as miserable as possible for the British to try and occupy any area previously held by the German forces.
