This week, Oscar Isaac solidified his spot as the internet’s darling. In lieu of a standard polished suit, the actor wore a shin-skimming grey pleated skirt courtesy of Thom Browne to walk the red carpet at a screening of Moon Knight in London. He opted for the full TB uniform, including a blazer, an Oxford shirt, the label’s signature black four-bar socks, and black leather brogue boots.
This isn’t Isaac’s first flirtation with skirts. Just this past week, while doing press in Berlin, he wore another pleated style by the New York-based label Commission with a leather jacket and a graphic T-shirt. The charming actor was turned into a Berghain-ready babe. “Oscar has been a long-time fan and has been wanting to wear skirts for press and events,” says Isaac’s stylist Michael Fisher. “What better designer than Thom Browne for a London premiere?”
The swoon-worthy look has propelled Isaac into another style sphere. But his style has always been superb. Whether he is in a suit or a skirt, Isaac always adds the right amount of tasteful risk-taking to his outfits. He’s gone casual in a steady rotation of printed camp shirts, including a Prada version that he wore at the 78th Venice International Film Festival back in September, and a blazing yellow Valentino for a Moon Knight photo-call this week. Plus, there is an art to how coordinated Isaac looks: on Thursday morning, his stylist posted a photo of the star wearing a pair of burgundy loafers with deep red socks and prune-coloured trousers – all deliciously sweet and rich hues.
