10 Reasons Why Nick Grimshaw Will Make A Great Ambassador For London Collections: Men

28 November 2013 by


BBC Radio 1 breakfast presenter and all round nice guy Nick Grimshaw has been announced as the latest ambassador for London Collections: Men. In his new role, Harry Styles' BFF will support British designers and attend the menswear shows and parties alongside fellow ambassadors David Gandy, Dermot O’Leary and Tinie Tempah. While Grimmy may not have the swagger of Tinie T or the suave style of David G, he's got more than enough fashion credentials for the job in hand. Grazia's Fashion News and Features Editor Katherine Ormerod explained, "Nick Grimshaw is the ultimate dandy GBF – accomplished, well put together and the best connected man about town. No wonder every fashion girl worth her salt is clamouring to have Grimmy on their arm." Here's the 10 reasons why he will make a great LC:M ambassador at the next catwalk extravaganza, taking place in the UK capital on between 6-8th January 2014...

1. He's a pro FROWer


Sandwiched between Poppy Delevingne and Harry Styles with Champagne flute in hand, Grimmy is every inch the pro FROWer. During London Fashion Week he never misses Henry Holland's show and this season he and Harry were front row regulars.

2. He's friends with British fashion designers


Nothing says friendship like a tongue in the ear. Henry and Grimmy are regular party pals and clearly share a taste for flamboyant shirts.

3. He's got Mossy's vote


You'll remember that Kate Moss appeared on Gimmy's radio show where he persuaded her to read out a chapter from '50 Shades of Grey' for Comic Relief. Now that's trust!

4. He's in touch with his feminine side

He may be supporting menswear designers as LC:M ambassador, but we're sure Nick will be looking out for the girls too. He's previously dressed up as Rita Ora and Alexa Chung and honestly doesn't look too shabby in a dress.

5. But he's a man's man too

Grrr! Can you smell the testosterone?

6. He's part of the Fash Pack



We can't really think of any Brit fashionista who isn't bessies with Grimmy. He's got British Fashion Council ambassador Alexa Chung on side, as well as Pixie Geldof, Jaime Winstone and Daisy Lowe to name but a few.

7. He knows Anna Wintour (or is that Pixie Geldof?)

Nick once enjoyed lunch with the high priestess of fashion Anna Wintour... oh no wait!

8. He experiments with his look

When Nick Grimshaw became Nicki Grimaj he joined the pink haired crew that also features Helen Mirren, Katy Perry and supermodel Charlotte Free.

9. But knows how to work the classics



Skinny jeans. Leather jacket. Nice boots. Done. There's a simple formula to Grimmy's style, but we like it.

10. He's already a fashion commentator...

When Grazia Daily spoke to Mr Grimshaw at London Fashion Week we asked him why he thought Cara Delevingne was so successful. He told us, 'She's got the best face! I've known her for ages and every now and then I'll say, "Cara, you're really nice looking!"' Fair enough!
