One star stood out from the rest inside L.A.’s Chateau Marmont Thursday afternoon: Nick Jonas. The 23-year-old singer arrived at the hotel's poolside courtyard for a dinner in celebration of his latest accomplishment, landing the cover of Topman magazine’s Tailoring Issue. Dressed in head-to-toe Topman, Jonas seamlessly met the outdoor event’s cocktail dress code with a blue-and-white color scheme. He donned white jeans which he combined with a well-proportioned navy blazer, top, and pair of boots.
His relationship with the brand goes way, way back. “When we were touring back in the day with the [Jonas] Brothers, we’d go over to the U.K., good to see that they were kind of ahead of the game and pushing the envelope,” he told InStyle of his first introduction to the clothier. “Then it was not only excellent fashion-forward stuff, but also at a great price point, and something that I think is really accessible as well, which is a good thing.”
For Jonas, who later spent time chatting with friend Camilla Belle, his style is easy to define. “I think it’s a classic approach. Understanding too that I’m young, and trying to bring a little bit of youth into it, and have fun with it. There are times you make bolder statements, so it’s all within the bounds of classic men’s tailoring,” he said. The man of the hour proceeded to “just have some good food, drink a little bit, maybe too much” inside of Bungalow 1, where guests including Nate Berkus and husband Jeremiah Brent welcomed a dinner. The menu featured kale salad, shrimp cocktail, wild salmon and steak frites, and sorbet with berries for dessert.
Belle, who arrived in a sleeveless 3.1 Phillip Lim dress, expressed her support for Jonas. “He makes everything look really cool, because he’s a cool guy, so he pulls most looks off with his cool face,” she told us, moving on to explain how excited she was to catch up with “old friends that I haven’t seen in a while.”
So did Jonas dispel any fashion advice for guys? You bet. He opened up about the importance of tailoring: “I think, as a man, there’s nothing better than putting on a suit and feeling confident and comfortable,” he said. “Knowing that it fits you the right way, and that you put in the time to really put your best foot forward and look your best. And it feels good when you walk into a room to have that.” His feel-good vibes were sure felt all over.
