Will Young cuts a soft figure in an all-black ensemble for a rare outing to the Rankin art exhibition in London

He became famous 20 years ago with Pop Idol.

And in a rare public appearance, Will Young attended the Visual Noise At Maryland Studio art fair in London on Friday, which was hosted by photographer Rankin.

The 43-year-old singer looked smart for the outing, sporting a casual look with black chino pants, an oversized, dropped mesh top and black rubber-soled boots.

He smiled at the cameras during the event, holding his phone while wearing round-frame glasses.

Will’s salt and pepper locks were brushed into a small crest while he attended the art bash.

He seemed to be having a good time at the event, posing for a slew of playful snaps with Rankin, real-life nickname John Rankin Waddell, who is known for shooting celebrities like Kate Moss, Madonna, David Bowie and the Queen.

The pair put on a lively show, hugging each other for many of the snaps as Rankin pouted Will.

In another, Will peeked over the photographer’s shoulder — pulling a joking face and posing for the camera for once.

The art exhibition was held to celebrate the talent of photographers whose graduation shows were disrupted due to Covid-19.

40 of the UK 2020-2022 graduate photographers were invited to the studio in North East London to show their work.

The outing comes as Will recently opened up about taking a “light-hearted” approach to his battle with depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Speaking about his mental health podcast, The Wellbeing Lab, Will said: “Wellbeing and mental health is a very serious topic, but it can also be very funny. “The first time I went into trauma treatment, I was 34 years old and I was playing with Play-Doh, and I was like, ‘What the hell happened to me?’

“There are a lot of funny moments in really terribly tragic times, so being recognizable and using humor is very important to me,” he continued.
