From Sex and the City reboots to Prada shirts: the moments we fell in love with the iconic actor. In a year in which men have largely been revealed to be trash, Jeff Goldblum has ascended like a delightful, Prada-wearing pterodactyl, soaring above Hollywood accompanied by a jazz soundtrack…

Jeff Goldblum has been one of 2019’s sole redeeming qualities. The actor, who apparently owns more Prada shirts than any other human, and who even debuted a couple of never-before-seen designs on his Instagram, has become a definitive style icon. Whether doing press for Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs or going on tour as a jazz musician, the internet’s daddy has double Isabel Marant zebra print; some silky, silky Calvin Klein by Raf Simons; a psychedelic Tom Ford Tux; and even managed to make the ubiquitous Gucci belt buckle look not-so-basic. Oh, and he also launched his own merch line this year. All hail the king.

He has delighted in TV appearances, interviews, and on his own Instagram account, where posts include wonderful things like his son wearing his Balenciaga Triple S trainers  and fan art of himself as a centaur. He’s obviously one of the most attractive men to ever have existed, but how did he turn from actor to meme to the one pure thing left on this earth?

No one, and meaning no one, wears Prada like Jeff Goldblum wears Prada. In the last year, he’s been spotted in cardigans, knitted polo shirts, that Christophe Chemin print. His personal style is undoubtedly excellent but reached a dizzying pinnacle of wonders when he stepped out in the AW18 50/50 shirt.

He will for sure continue to amaze us every day…
