It’s not just his boyish good looks and humble speeches that keep us crushing on Eddie Redmayne – he’s also a seriously snappy dresser. As well as sweeping the board at awards season for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Mr Redmayne also earned himself a reputation as one of the sharpest men in showbiz, thanks to his seemingly endless collection of perfectly tailored suits, namely by Gucci. And to prove his fashion stripes further, he’s just landed a new role as an ambassador for OMEGA watches.
Of course, Eddie is no stranger to the modelling world – most noteably he’s served as a face of Burberry alongside a then newly-launched Cara Delevingne. And he’s in equally good company with his latest gig, joining fellow dapper gent George Clooney on OMEGA’s roster of famous faces.
In the first look at his new role, the 33-year-old Brit poses on a cobbled street with a pinhole camera for a prop. And of course, he’s sure to flash his wrist-candy beneath a smart tweed overcoat. Looking good, Eddie.
Full of their new model’s praises, Stephen Urquhart, President of OMEGA said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Eddie to the OMEGA family. He brings true elegance and integrity, and is incredibly humble about his success – something that sits perfectly with the OMEGA spirit. We very much look forward to working together.”
And the feeling is mutual, with Eddie gushing about the gig: “I have worn OMEGA for a number of years, so to be made an official ambassador for the brand on a global level is very exciting. To join a brand whose own credentials include the only watch to be officially certified by NASA, and the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games is an honour.” He’s definitely done his research there…
