The first outfit that springs to mind when thinking about Jeff Goldblum is the all-black ensemble he wears in Jurassic Park. An outfit that is neither best suited for tropical island climate, nor one that is particularly practical when running away from a T-rex. Dr. Ian Malcolm finds this packing error out the hard way, but this doesn’t mean that Goldblum hasn’t taken style notes from one of his most famous roles.
In Goldblum’s more casual attire, a classic leather jacket is never too far away, and black is his signature color both in the Jurassic Park franchise and in real life. As noted in other recent Jeff Goldblum posts praising his sartorial choices, this recent style icon status has been cemented in the last four years — since he started working with stylist Andrew T. Vottero. Goldblum doesn’t just turn it up for movie premieres and award shows, nor does he dial back the rakish charm for daytime events. And he will bring out his inner Dr. Ian Malcolm when the time calls for it.
In June, Jeff Goldblum was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (they sure took their sweet time).
This is the Golblumiest of the Goldblum looks, and as he notes in this really fun conversation about his style evolution for Vanity Fair, he no longer broods at these events, “happy as a clam.” Black attire doesn’t always have to mean mournful or oh-so-serious, as Goldblum proves time and time again. Life finds a way, and so does Goldblum in thick-framed specs, black boots, and an all-black outfit.
