Did you catch it? Paul Mescal wears Irish design on US talk show

Gwan Paul!

Did you manage to catch a glimpse it? Paul Mescal is representing Ireland in every way he can ahead of this year’s Oscars and his latest one was an Irish designer.

Styled by Felicity Kay, Paul has been dazzling in some statement pieces on recent red carpets and his recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live was no different.

Appearing on the US talk show, Paul discussed the pronunciation of his surname, his friendship with Aftersun co-star Frankie Corio and his Oscar nomination.

But eagle eyed fans noticed that the Maynooth man was dresses in a stunning outfit by Irish designer Simone Rocha, something that is not unusual for the actor.

Wearing a blue slim-fit shirt with a beaded round collar from the designer, it retails at £450. FElicity styled this number with simple black trousers, black shoes, and accessories from Cartier and Manolo Blahnik.

This isn’t the first time he has worn one of these designs as he did the same for the 2023 SAG Awards and the Irish premiere of God’s Creatures over the last month.

Speaking with RTÉ in February, the 27-year-old said he was delighted to wear “one of our own who I absolutely love”.

“I’m so delighted to get to wear her here at the Irish premiere”, he continued, before laughing “but yeah, my wonderful stylist Felicity Kay sorts me out!”

“The world of fashion, I feel like not the most equipped to answer other than I’m really enjoying starting out into that world, and getting to wear Simone here in Dublin is cool.”
