The Black Panther's Chadwick Boseman has seen the light and joined Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek as a poster boy for the light suit brigade in stunning silver.

At this week's Golden Globe Award’s Boseman stood out in Versace, teaming up with gay groom jewellery favourite Tiffany & Co. for a bejewelled finish.

Why just think about a band of gold when you marry your husband when you can explore plenty of precious metals in your wardrobe,

"It’s a work of art," Boseman’s stylist Ashley Weston told The Hollywood Reporter. "We have a great relationship with Versace — Donatella and the house loves Chadwick, and he loves them, so we tapped them to create this custom look. Silver is a colour we’ve never done before, and it’s really striking on him.”

“For every red carpet or awards show we like to keep the momentum going,” Weston, who has worked with Boseman for eight years, said. “Chadwick loves fashion and is really fearless, so [tonight] is another opportunity for a modern, fresh take on a black-tie look.”

To anchor the look Weston turned to Christian Louboutin for silver tasselled loafers to complete the positively regal look.
