IN FOR THE THRILL: Pop sensation Elly Jackson, aka La Roux, will be the surprise guest opening Paris men’s fashion week at Viktor & Rolf today. “I love suits. I wouldn’t feel comfortable in girls’ clothes,” said the boyish redhead, who heads next month to Miami, San Diego and Los Angeles for some warm-up gigs ahead of a big U.S. tour in November. “Apart from [hairstylist] Charlie Le Mindu, I’ve never been to a fashion show before.” For today’s show, Jackson will wear a Viktor & Rolf men’s tux, paired with the designers’ signature specs. “We love her style. We love her authenticity. We love the way she plays with gender. So it felt logical. She’s right for our men’s clothes,” Viktor Horsting said. She could be right for men’s accessories too. On the runway, the designers will unveil their first collection of men’s bags. The duo could also be set for some air time on YouTube — if Jackson has her way. “I’ve asked them to play a role in the new ‘In For the Kill’ video,” she said with a grin. “There’s a part they’d be perfect for. Hopefully they’ll be into it. If not, we’ll have to find look-alikes with glasses.”
