In 2011, if I was taking bets on the Captain America star most likely to co-headline an Oscar-nominated film and sit front row at NY Fashion Week while schmoozing with Nicole Kidman, I would have bet on the Sometimes Second Best Chris, Chris Evans. I would not have bet on the guy best known then as Serena van der Woodsen’s ex-boyfriend or Leighton Meester’s real-life ex. Against all odds, Sebastian Stan has become a legit star. Of course, he’s now the beloved Bucky Barnes and he’s talented and attractive (Sarah’s been crushing on him for years) so it wasn’t that much of a stretch that his career would end up where it is now but I’ll probably never get over that he started from Gossip Girl and now he’s here.

Sebastian Stan sat front row at the Calvin Klein Collection show yesterday. He sat beside his I, Tonya co-star Margot Robbie with Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern on the other side of Margot. There are a couple of photos of Nicole seemingly laughing hysterically at something Sebastian said, and the two look like old pals. I was confused for a second, then remembered that Sebastien and Nicole just worked together on Destroyer. In fact, Sebastien’s new buzz cut was unveiled on Nicole Kidman’s Instagram.

Bucky Barnes has never done it for me but now I think it may have just been his bad hair (Lainey once nicknamed him Bucky With The Bad Hair.) This, however, is a GOOD look for him. I also love his Calvin Klein fashion week ensemble. The navy trench is a great colour and length. The red shirt is a nice touch. Aside from everyone in the cast of Black Panther, this is the best menswear look I’ve seen all season. Sebastian looked great at the Tom Ford show last week and again at Hugo Boss a few days after that. I also never would have bet that Sebastian Stan would be one of the best dressed men of 2018 but here we are.
