Daniel Craig debuted a striking new hairstyle on the red carpet at the second annual Albie Awards.

Putting his James Bond era well and truly behind him, the 55-year-old unveiled a retro quiff style, swept dramatically over to one side while attending the charity event in New York City on Thursday night (28 September).

The actor matched his vintage-inspired hair-do with a pair of wire-frame glasses and a dark blue double-breasted suit, finishing the look with a navy bow tie.

Online, the new hairstyle was making waves. Some have drawn comparisons to his Knives Out character Benoit Blanc, with an Instagram commenter writing: “Getting ready to play Benoit Blanc again, it appears.”

Another on X (FKA Twitter) added: “Classic Benoit Blanc move.”

“I love his hair that shade,” another on Instagram added. “It suits him… as does the blue suit.”

Craig was joined on the red carpet by his wife, Rachel Weisz, who donned a black and white floor-length gown decorated with an abstract print.

The couple were among the famous faces in attendance at the Albies, organized by George and Amal Clooney’s Clooney Foundation for Justice to celebrate “courageous defenders of justice who are at great risk for what they do.”

The event – named after Justice Albie Sachs, the South African anti-apartheid activist – was attended by other stars, including Emily Blunt, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Cindy Crawford, and Scarlett Johansson.

It was a rare public outing for Craig and Weisz, who tend to keep their marriage out of the limelight.

In an interview with The Guardian earlier this year, Weisz, 53, said she finds it easy to keep her personal life relatively private. “Celebrity – it doesn’t really mean anything to me,” she told the paper.

“And it’s no work at all to keep not showing up at events. It’s not work at all to keep a private life. Life can be demanding, life in a family can be complicated but I don’t even know what ‘celebrity’ means. I don’t think of myself like that.”
