Nicholas Hoult: ‘I don’t know a lot about clothes’

He might not be a regular at fashion shows, but actor Nicholas Hoult was happy to make an exception for Burberry on Monday (22Feb16)
The X-Men: First Class star took pride of place at the British brand’s latest show during London Fashion Week, but admitted to Elle.com he wasn’t completely comfortable.
“(It’s) not my first, but this definitely isn’t a regular ‘thing’ for me,” he confessed. “If you said, ‘Nicholas, want to come to a fashion show?’ I’d say ‘No, I’d probably rather sleep late’. But this one is different.
“I don’t know a lot about clothes, to be honest with you, but I do know a little bit about Burberry, because you grow up knowing it’s part of your national heritage, so to speak, so it’s a big honour to be invited here. And the clothes are cool, they’re classic, they’re easy to wear.”
The 26-year-old joked he normally only cares whether his clothes are clean or not, before opening up about what he looks for when it comes to style and the opposite sex.
“I like it when people wear something that’s appropriate to the occasion, if that’s what you mean,” he said. “So, if you’re coming to a Burberry show, first off, (wear) clean clothes.
“Second, you know, it’s probably a good idea to wear a Burberry trench coat if you’ve got one. They’re quite cool, if you think about it, because they’re the one thing that’s always in style.”
Nicholas brought his sister Rosanna along to the fashion show as a birthday treat, adding, “Going to a fashion show seems like a nice thing to do on your birthday.”
Nicholas might not be a clothes horse, but he must have picked up a few tips while dating fashion-forward actress Jennifer Lawrence. The couple ended its romance last year (15).
