Australian actor Jacob Elordi has been captivating audiences for the past few years. Not only is he a Hollywood leading man—in acclaimed films like Saltburn (2023) and Priscilla (2023)—he can now call himself a fashion icon since being crowned the new brand ambassador for Bottega Veneta.

This 26-year-old star has quietly become a social media style icon. His impeccable sense of style is a perfect blend of fashion and function, drawing inspiration from the casual, laid-back coolness of his idol, Steve McQueen. Elordi's off-duty looks often feature classic silhouettes and wardrobe staples elevated by masterful accessorising—a signature formula for this well-groomed star.

Stylist powerhouses, sisters Wendi Ferreria and Nicole DeJulio, have frequently dressed Elordi in Bottega Veneta for various events. These include the premiere of his hit movie Priscilla at the Venice Film Festival, an appearance at the GQ Man of The Year party, and his debut on Saturday Night Live.

With a shared appreciation for timeless style, it's no wonder Elordi's recent appointment as a brand ambassador for the Italian maison feels like a perfect fit. Both Elordi and Bottega Veneta are masters of creating enduring looks—pure class.

Here, we've curated some of the most stylish items you can use to emulate the star's effortlessly cool yet classic sense of style.

No man accessorises as effortlessly as Elordi. If there is anything we know about his fashion sense, he loves a great bag. Known for having an exquisite bag collection, the star is regularly seen carrying variations of the Bottega Veneta Andiamo bag—even before his ambassadorship. The simple yet timeless accessory has the brand's iconic weave and spacious interior, which makes it great if you're always on the go.
