It’s the night of the House of Gucci premiere in London and Jeremy Irons has done the seemingly impossible. He has out-dressed Lady Gaga, by doing the unexpected.

While everyone else (including her) was clad head-to-toe in the titular label, Irons looked a picture of what the Italians call sprezzatura – a studied insouciance – in a pea coat with waistcoat and trousers tucked into his combat boots. It’s the look of someone who is too cool to try to impress.
