Brian Cox popped by Paris Fashion Week for the first time — please let this usher in an era of Noted Kookery from him, sartorially; suddenly there is nothing I have ever wanted more — and he said this to WWD:

“I didn’t know what to expect, and I was actually genuinely surprised and delighted,” the 77-year-old said, dressed in a loose, bright blue shirt that he left untucked. “I thought, ‘Wow, this is so risky.’ My only worry is the long trousers because I knew somebody who had a bad accident with those trousers by tripping over them.”

What if that somebody was Jeremy Strong?!?!? Wait, he’d have said so, never mind. Anyway, here is the Loewe show he watched:

The Loewe womenswear shows are a lot weirder, but… there’s still a WHOLE lot of REALLY high-waisted pants that I guess Josh O’Connor will be wearing while he’s promoting Challengers.
