Euphoria stars Angus Cloud and Maude Apatow attended a dinner to celebrate American designer Thom Browne, and sure enough, the internet burst into flames. The actors, who play Fezco and Lexi Howard respectively, have become pop culture’s latest fake It couple after audiences fell in love with their storyline in Euphoria‘s second season.
Weeks ahead of the brand’s fall-winter 2022 show, which will be held in April, Angus Cloud, Maude Apatow, and friends of the house came together on Wednesday night in Thom Browne’s classic tartan print that debuted in 2006—a gray and navy colorway that’s recognized by the Tartan Registry of Scotland. Cloud, who starred in the brand’s preshow lookbook, wore a tailored suit, and his onscreen counterpart wore a pleated skirt, tights, and a mini dachshund purse.
We were crossing our fingers the entire week that they would be spotted together at some point during New York Fashion Week, and it worked: Cloud ate Flamin’ Hot Cheetos in the front row of Coach’s fall-winter 2022 with Megan Thee Stallion, while Apatow moderated a discussion with Rodarte’s designers. Honestly, the range is unmatched.
Cloud previously told Glamour (and his Twitter followers) that he’s #FexiForLife, saying “Personally, I think [they’re] cool. I mean, they gonna do what they will. Hopefully, Lexi knows what she’s getting into.”
While our favorite slow-burn onscreen romance hasn’t happened quite yet, we can fantasize about a high-fashion version of Fexi taking New York Fashion Week by storm in a parallel universe.
