An argument for Jonathan Bailey being the most stylish ‘Bridgerton’ sibling

An argument for Jonathan Bailey being the most stylish 'Bridgerton' sibling

In only two seasons Bridgerton has earned itself a spot in the minds and hearts of a global audience – each in adoration of its charm, romance and (of course) its fashion. We've already talked at length about the resurrection of Regency-era styles – and where to shop the best corsets to add to your wardrobe – but we haven't talked about enough is the personal style of Lord Anthony Bridgerton – AKA British actor Jonathan Bailey.

 

Who is Jonathan Bailey?

Jonathan Stuart Bailey was born 25 April, 1988 – making him a Taurus – is an English actor most known for his role in Netflix's popular Regency-period Bridgerton series, where he plays one of the titular Bridgerton siblings: Lord Anthony Bridgerton. Bailey snagged the coveted role while he was starring in the West End revival of Company in 2018, for which he took home a Best Supporting Actor Olivier Award in 2019.

However, Bailey says that if he hadn't succeeded as an actor he would have become a teacher. “If I wasn’t an actor, I think I’d love to be a primary school teacher,” Bailey said in a recent inerview. “I mean, I think all teachers are basically modern-day heroes. And I love going to see my niece in her nativities at school. I always think they’re just so sweet and lovely. Watching the next generation of Baileys grow up, you just realise how informative those years are and I think being a part of that is pretty special.”

Bailey is set up for a massive year – gearing up for the upcoming third season of Bridgertonand taking on the role of Prince Fiyero in the highly anticipated Wicked musical film adaptation.

Bailey is also making a splash off-camera and on red carpets, serving up some fashion-forward looks we simply need to talk about. Since catapulting to fame, he's worked with some major luxury fashion houses – attending fashion shows in Paris for Loewe, tennis grand slam matches with Ralph Lauren and last year's Met Gala with Tom Ford. Below, check out some of our favourite Jonathan Bailey style moments so far.
