Lewis Hamilton attended J.W. Anderson's latest fashion show on Sunday.

The Formula One ace came out in support of British designer J.W. Anderson on Sunday, watching his Spring/Summer 2016 showcase in his role as ambassador for the event. The 30-year-old held his own in the style stakes, wearing a statement stone-coloured trench coat with a pair of white jeans. Underneath his jacket he wore a red and white high neck jumper and to add extra cool credits he sported a pair of round-rimmed sunglasses.

And Lewis was clearly impressed by the designs that headed down the catwalk as he told WWD exactly which items he wanted to add to his own wardrobe.

"I liked the long denim coat, and also the orange leather jacket - that was pretty cool,” he smiled.

The racer kept his shades on throughout the show, despite being indoors. But when asked if he was struggling with the early morning start, Lewis said he's an early riser.

"I’m pretty good on a Sunday morning. I’m normally up anyway to go to church before I go racing,” he explained.

Lewis has definitely been showing off a real flair for fashion lately. When he isn't in his racing overalls he likes to keep his designer wardrobe up to date and during a recent chat with he opened up about how fashion and racing complement each other.

"They work pretty well in synergy. We drive fast cars; it’s elegant and luxurious, sporty and sexy at the same time," he said. "It wasn’t until I got into Formula One and I was hanging around people with great style that I had to sort myself out! I wanted to meet the creators of these clothes that I get to wear. It’s been a real eye-opener."
