He creeped us out in *Match Point* and modeled for Versace and Hugo Boss before embarking on his latest role—a kind of priapic, po-mo Henry VIII in *The Tudors*—but Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers has always won full marks for his stylish attire.

At the *Tudors* premiere the other night, he sported an ensemble that had an almost Rockabilly look to it: a midnight blue dress suit with satin piping on the lapels—custom-tailored by John Galliano—and a superskinny leather tie by Camilla Staerk.

Perhaps it was a holdover from his days playing Elvis or even the glam rock epic *Velvet Goldmine,* in which actually performed some of the songs. Either way, he managed to hold his own with *Tudors* co-star Peter O’Toole, who was decked out in some rather ancient-looking but still snappy Savile Row threads.
