Elgort was dressed head to toe in all Coach 1941 for his cover shoot. He wore a star-embellished green and yellow bomber with plaid trousers and brown leather boots. When asked about his character in the upcoming movie Baby Driver, Elgort told Billboard, "He's a soft-spoken badass. He's all bite, no bark."
The 23-year-old Manhattan native, who grew up in New York's elite Central Park West neighborhood and attended LaGuardia High School of Music, Art & Performing Arts (aka the school Fame was modeled after) hung out around Coney Island in a bright red AMI Paris sweatshirt, Louis Vuitton jeans and bomber jacket and Nikon camera hung around his neck.
The singer, whose former DJ name was Ansølo, sported a pink Bruta embroidered Spaghetti Western shirt, cuffed-up AMI Paris dark-wash jeans, pink knit Gucci socks and a pair of Pierre Hardy shoes.
“There are a lot of things I want to do, and I never want people to be like, ‘Ugh, that guy singing? Desperate,’” Elgort says in his cover story. “Eventually, I hope I can have a career that’s uncategorizable. And that’s hard. I think that would be very difficult to do, but I’m hopefully going to pull it all off.” Here, Elgort shows off his easygoing style in a black-and-white-striped Loewe sweater, a pair of light-wash distressed Calvin Klein jeans and a black Saint Laurent bomber jacket.
Mixing and matching patterns, Elgort dressed in an AMI black-and-blue triangle-print button-down, a Sankuanz blue-and-red plaid suit and Pierre Hardy loafers. “Some people are like, ‘You’re from New York, have you been to, like, insert-five-really-douchey-places?’" Elgort says of being a bit more grounded when it comes to New York's uppity restaurant scene. "I haven’t been to any of those places. I like my solid places.”
“I don’t walk around calling attention to myself. It’s important to be able to blend in; otherwise you turn into a Hollywood douche bag," Elgort said when writer Rebecca Milzkoff said he's frequently mentioned on the Who? Weekly podcast. "I’m sure plenty of people think I am one, too. I’m super easy to hate. But it’s fine. It’s hard to be liked and successful." Here, the millennial heartthrob stands out in an all-red Dries Van Noten button-down and trench coat.
Elgort shows off his sporty side in a blue Gucci track suit and red Giuseppe Zanotti sneaks.
Saving the best for last, he donned a custom-made Comme des Garcons Homme Plus ensemble -- which included a glittering pinstripe blazer, a black checkered print button-down shirt, black trousers and customized dinosaur sneakers. “I want to have a lot of energy,” he muses. “Moments of stillness at the piano, but I don’t want to forget that I’m young, and my instincts are probably good. I won’t forget about why I hate rock concerts and why I love EDM concerts. I’m going to keep it really fun.”
