2019 New York Fashion Week is in full flow as designers parade their wares in the Big Apple.

For those that don’t know, Fashion Week is as much about what people are wearing off the runway as they are on it, and Ansel Elgort has said a high bar for all the non-models.

The actor who stars in the film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s “The Goldfinch” stepped out in a dazzling outfit after his appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday.

Elgort was pictured wearing a ’70s-inspired flared suit in camel brown over a yellow polo top.

He teamed the retro suit with a pair of brown derby shoes, some diamanté-encrusted shades, and what Vogue calls a “murse” (man purse), though they admit it may be more of a miniature duffle.

Ansel Elgort went full '70s.

The publication adds that rapper Lil Uzi Vert, and singer Harry Styles are among the celebrities that share Elgort’s penchant for a man bag.

D’Marge, meanwhile, points out that Elgort’s flared look is not a far cry from Gucci’s new collection, which leans heavily on ’70s and ’80s style.

The actor wasn’t done there, though. The next day, Elgort dressed to impress at the Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2020 show, where he was joined by Miley Cyrus.

He cut a slightly more modern figure for the show in a herringbone suit, check shirt, and patterned tie, all in dark grey.

He wore the same outfit for CBS’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” where he talked about his new role as Tony in Steven Spielberg’s take on “West Side Story.”

In the interview, Elgort revealed that he’d already played in “West Side Story” – at theatre camp when he was 12 years old.

“I imagine Spielberg got wind of this and went, ‘There is my Tony,'” Colbert said.

“Exactly,” Elgort joked.

Spielberg’s adaptation of the musical is slated to arrive in movie theaters December 18, 2020.
