Mark Watson, the host of tomorrow’s (February 25) Shockwaves NME Awards ceremony, has said that he is learning from past host Russell Brand‘s fashion sense.
Watson said that he was planning a cultivated sense of scruffiness when picking his outfit – but was being careful not to go over the top in the style of Brand.
“I don’t want to look like I’ve made too much effort [dressing for the event],” he said. “At the same time I need to make sure I look like I’ve made an effort. It’s like being a girl.
“Mine’s the sort of scruffiness where you’ve spent a lot of times in hotels. It’s not that Russell Brand type of scruffiness. Every time I see him these days he looks like he’s worked very hard at it.”
