Tom Hiddleston is loving life right now

Ever wondered what James Bond would look like in Gucci?

September 29, 2016

The last 12 months have been pretty good to Tom Hiddleston. BAFTA nominated for Best Actor in December last year for his role in High-Rise. A dallying romance with American sweetheart Taylor Swift. Nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in The Night Manager, which was itself nominated too. And now this; you know you've made it when Gucci comes calling.

It would seem his meteoric rise has not been lost on the Italian fashion powerhouse. As you'll see below, the man who, when dressed as his reoccurring character Loki in Marvel's comic book universe looks like he's going to a fancy dress party, pulls off the distinguished and elegant look with supreme ease. Slipper shoes, velvet jackets, a bat-shaped bow tie and printed suits cut with razor-sharp cuts; all part of Gucci’s Cruise 2017 men’s tailoring campaign.

Shot at American artist Tony Duquette’s Dawnridge Estate in LA, the set is packed with heirlooms, paintings and curiosities from Duquette’s collection. However, for all the power dressing provided by Alessandro Michele, creative director of Gucci, Hiddleston is almost upstaged by some equally well-groomed Afghan hounds.

See for yourselves...
