Normal People star Paul Mescal swaps his clean-shaven look for a sleek mustache and slicked-back hair at the awards ceremony in Cannes
He rose to fame as Connell on the hit TV drama Normal People.
But two years into his starring role, Paul Mescal traded his clean-shaven look for a mustache and rocked a new look at Sunday night’s Women in Motion Awards during the Cannes Film Festival.
The 26-year-old actor slicked back his hair and donned a smart suit for the event at Place de la Castre.

Paul looked full of confidence as he posed in his smart suit and statement bow tie at the ceremony, which aims to highlight women’s contribution to cinema both in front of and behind the camera.
The actor has also been busy promoting his new movie Aftersun during the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival.
Away from his promotional tour, it’s an exciting time for the rising star as rumor has it he recently popped the question to singer Phoebe Bridgers.
The 27-year-old Motion Sickness singer reportedly referred to the Normal People actor as her “fiancé” as they partied at Coachella last month, according to The Irish Mirror.

A party-goer reportedly remarked that Phoebe made no secret of the fact that two duos were to walk down the aisle.
MailOnline has reached out to representatives from Paul and Phoebe for comment.
It comes just months after the couple took to Instagram to make a sweet snap official on social media.
Phoebe took to the photo-sharing app in December to confirm their relationship with a much-loved picture of the two.

While it was the pair’s first time making their social media debut, the couple walked the red carpet at last month’s LACMA Art+Film Gala.
They were also spotted taking a very leisurely stroll in Los Angeles.
The couple became romantically linked after a source told The Sun they spent a weekend together in August 2020.
The insider shared, “Paul invited friends over and they played wild drinking games. They both have a crush. His membership on celebrity dating site Raya is a smoke screen to cover up that they are secretly an item.
Paul has previously been open about his romance, telling GQ Magazine: “Having someone to lean on at such a crazy, crazy time has been invaluable. Really, I don’t know where I would be without her.”

Meanwhile, in May, the indie rock star told NME magazine that she thought Paul was a “cute boy” after becoming a fan of his after watching Normal People.
She continued to follow him on Instagram, and the actor was quick to return the favor. “I got a little pitter-ratter in my heart when I saw it,” she gushed.
The couple soon met when the actor joined Phoebe for a vodcast for her Instagram Live.
During her Instagram Live, Paul also admitted, “I think it’s well documented that I love your music.” Phoebe then replied: “Well that makes me blush.”
Paul and the singer then stayed together on Zoom after the live ended, where they drank together for several hours.
