From “Rocket Man” to red carpet stylist.
Ed Sheeran got a little outfit help from his close friend Elton John for Wednesday night’s GQ Men of the Year Awards.
The “Perfect” singer, 30, revealed to the Sun that John, 74, put him in touch with Donatella Versace to secure his eye-popping printed blazer for the event.
“It’s weird, I’ve always hated suits and they make me feel uncomfortable — and yet something like this makes me feel all right because it’s so out-there,” Sheeran told the outlet.
“Elton hooked me up with Donatella Versace and I thought, ‘Let’s go for it! It’s a big night and it’s great to be back out, so why not?’”
It was indeed a big night for the famous redhead, as he took home the award for Solo Artist of the Year.
“Before I came tonight I FaceTimed Elton to show him the results,” he added. “He’s been slagging off my boring wardrobe for years. I’m not really a fashion guy but I’ve had to start to show an interest – he loves it. Elton approved — it’s very him.”
Indeed, Elton is known for his flamboyant style and is a huge fan of Versace, recently posting an adorable image with husband David Furnish and their sons Zachary, 10, and Elijah, 8, wearing matching personalized Versace robes.
Perhaps he and Sheeran will have their own twinning moment next.
