It's no secret, I have a crush on Hugh Jackman. It may be the lovely smile, dark good looks or his personable approachable way. Or perhaps the fact that he is an amazing actor, whether playing tough guys or those characters like Jean Valjean from Les Miserables, that have a vulnerability, he can transport you to that moment in time. One thing you also notice is that he is always smiling for the camera and although he is snapped everywhere you never get him confronting the paparazzi. He seems like a genuine Mr Nice Guy.
So when New Look asked me to work on their Man Crush Monday campaign I only had one man in mind, and that had me thinking, which clothes would Hugh wear and for what occasion?
Hugh is a family man and he loves nothing better than picking up his kids from school, so one look for him would be a casual, easy to wear look - a simple dressed down effortless style. As you can see, the prices below are great. Hugh, if you are listening you don't need to go to the high end luxury fashion boutiques, take a trip to New Look instead. The chinos are slim fit, the hoodie is warm and easy to wash the kids sticky handprints off, the trainers comfortable and easy to wear, and the dark grey burnt out t-shirt is a modern classic.
Perfect for picking up the kids from school
zip up hoodie £14.99, grey burnt out tee £9.99, grey stretch chinos £19.99, dark grey canvas trainers £7.99
Hugh's easy going nature and charm makes him look effortless when presenting awards - the most notable being the 2009 Oscars. I therefore also wanted a very smart dressy look for him. Well New Look came up trumps again, see my outfit choice below. I would never have thought you could buy a tux and a shirt with a bow tie from New Look, but, guess what, you can.
Perfect for hosting the Oscars
black tailored jacket £27, black sateen trousers £9, waistcoat £11, white ribbed contrast bow tie shirt £13 - all in the sale
I said earlier, Hugh is a big family man, well he is also a very loving husband. He has been with his wife Deborra-Lee for a number of years, sorry all you lovely ladies out there! So I also want to style him for a romantic meal out with his wife. The tweed jacket, and v neck jumper are classics that never go out of fashion and the look is updated with slim fit dark jeans and navy brogues with contrasting soles.

So what do you think of the way I have styled my celeb crush. Did you know that New Look also sell men's clothing?
