The Graham Norton Show on January the 11th had an impressive line-up—all wearing lovely suits. The guest were James McAvoy, Sarah Paulson, Richard E Grant, Steve Coogan, John C Reilly, and Westlife. Let’s take a look at the amazing suits they were wearing.

James McAvoy

James McAvoy came on the show wearing a lovely coloured electric blue suit with a crisp white shirt underneath. His look was classic and very dapper. James and Sarah Paulson came on the show to promote their new thriller, Glass. Graham was showing him the work of a balloon artist who has recreated many of his roles in his past films such as X-men, The Chronicles of Narnia, Atonement, and Split.

He also tells a ‘charming’ story of a time he used his grandfather’s razor.

Sarah Paulson

Known for her American Horror Story role, Sarah Paulson came on the show earing a long-dress suit with pointed toe stilettos. Her hair was pulled back. She wore a white sheet collared blouse underneath. Her suit jacket had velvet embellishments and sparkles and looked incredibly elegant. She discusses her trypophobia.

Steve Coogan

Steve Coogan and John C Reilley joined Graham to promote their film Stan & Ollie about the comedy duo Laurel and Hardy on their last ever tour together. Steve wears a classic black double-breasted suit with pointed notched lapels with a white shirt. His longer hair was pushed back slightly and his classic burgundy and black tie polished off the look. His cufflinks added interest and he looked very dapper. The clip from the show shows him doing some past celebrity impressions.

John C Reilley

Reilley (who appears in the clip around 22 minutes) wears a classic single-breasted khaki coloured suit with a white shirt underneath. The look is fresh combined with his neural coloured tie and pocket square. He has subtle pointed lapels and a subtle pin stripe through the suit jacket and trousers.

Richard E Grant

Richard E Grant, the Swazi-English actor, wore a dapper grey-blue plaid suit with a dark navy blue velvet waistcoat and a dark turtleneck underneath to round out the look. The single-breasted jacket has notched lapels and he wore his hair slick back. In this clip, he discusses his infatuation with Barbara Streisand and the time he met her.
