‘Thanks to Bridgerton, I’m actually back in fashion’: Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen wears all black leather and brandishes a RAPIER ahead of the return of Changing Rooms

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen channelled his inner Bridgerton when he donned black leather ahead of the return of his 1990s show Changing Rooms.

In a series of new promotional snaps for the show, the 56-year-old self-styled ‘homestyle consultant’ oozed flamboyance as he rocked a cheeky black outfit.

The star of his ensemble was his trouser, boot and waistcoat combo, which were all made from black leather.

He wore a simple, yet classy, black overcoat that came down to just above knee-level.

In one snap, a skull and cross bones design adorned his waistcoat.  

Seen standing in a grand room, befitting of a regal ball from the hit Netflix show Bridgerton, Llewelyn-Bowen also held a rapier in one of his gloved hands. 

Speaking about his look, the TV star said he wanted to re-visit some of his older styles as he prepped for the 25th anniversary and return of Changing Rooms.

He said: ‘September will mark the 25th anniversary of the first ever Changing Rooms episode hitting our screens so I really liked the idea of re-visiting the look I had back then for this new shiney 2021 revivification of the show.
