Justin Bieber's Red Suit Was Inspired By ... Frank Sinatra?

Justin Bieber may have declared his retirement from music, but that doesn’t mean the Biebs will ever take a day off from bringing his own unique brand of style to the world. The star stepped out at the world premiere of Justin Bieber’s Believe in a red Balmain suit and white tasseled Del Toro smoking slippers — a look that his stylist tells PEOPLE was inspired by another singer that made ladies swoon: Frank Sinatra.

“I was told he’d be introducing his new artists to the world on the red carpet, so I instantly thought ‘Rat Pack’ — Justin Bieber as Frank Sinatra of course,” says his stylist Ugo Mozie. And though Bieber initially had asked for a white suit with red accents, Mozie steered things in a different direction: “As I put his look together, the red just took over. Red is powerful, sexy and masculine.”

Powerful, sexy and masculine? Is our little Biebs growing up? “Absolutely. You don’t have to see him to know that,” Mozie said. “Justin is showing the world his evolution through his music, and I’m making sure he’s showing the world his evolution through his style.”

Are you excited for a new, more mature Bieber, or will you miss all this (and this and this and …)?

He looks like a fool.

A tailored suit made to fit and looking classy is sexy. Open up GQ magazine. This just looks silly and isn’t really “style” as much as it is a cliche way to try and stand out.

his pants are absolutely awful. Why does he keep wearing these diaper looking pants? Alot of male entertainers are as well. They look awful and stupid. He looks like a clown…like Kanye West …well maybe not that bad, but it’s still a bad look.

Pfft…Frank Sinatra had more class in his little finger than the Biebs has in his whole body.

I still don’t see the connection between Bieber and. Frank Sinatra. (I didn’t want to mention Bieber in the same sentence as Frank Sinatra).

Frank Sinatra is turning in his grave. Beepers will never be a man like Frank.

Janice on

I like the look — just needs to pull his pants up. The color looks good on him. He is a great singer.

Funny on last night’s Barbara Walter’s show, she looked back to his interview from maybe 5 years ago. He said he planned to stay “grounded.” LMAO – He’s the farthest thing from grounded. This tweet needs to get real people around him who will actually tell him what’s what and not just be “yes” men.

Stephanie on

Looks like a little boy playing “dress-up.”
