Jonah Hauer-King goes black and white while attending the Emporio Armani Spring/Summer 2022 fashion show on Thursday (September 23) in Milan, Italy.

The 26-year-old The Little Mermaid star sat front row at the event, which was held during Milan Fashion Week.

Also sitting in the front row were singers Niall Horan and Becky G.

Here’s a description for the new collection: Under the symbol of an eagle that flies high and knows no boundaries, for forty years, Emporio Armani has been expressing the joys of fashion free from imposed rules, that nevertheless maintains the harmony of shapes, balance, and the sense of nonchalant elegance that are the essence of Armani style. The signature is distinctive. It expresses a strong identity, in which the dialogue between the male and female worlds are constant, despite their mutual differences.

If you missed it, Jonah‘s upcoming live action The Little Mermaid recently announced it’s release date! Filming on the Disney movie wrapped back in July.

Niall also recently made his red carpet debut as a couple with girlfriend Amelia Woolley.

13 Reason Why's Christian Navarro Slams Jonah Hauer-King's Prince Eric Casting in 'Little Mermaid'

It was revealed earlier in the week that actor Jonah Hauer-King will be portraying Prince Eric in the upcoming live action Little Mermaid film opposite Halle Bailey in the title role.

However, 13 Reasons Why‘s Christian Navarro, who sent Disney audition tapes for the role, is not happy with the casting.

After the news of Jonah‘s casting was announced, Christian returned to Twitter briefly to share his thoughts, before deleting his account again. He also echoed his statement on his Instagram story.

“Just came back to say; after months of seeing every person of color they could think of for the role of Prince Eric, @DisneyStudios somehow still cast a white guy,” he wrote on Twitter. “I guess diversity is just a word. And THATS Hollywood. One brown person is enough, two brown leads is unthinkable.”

“Literally @disney saw a who’s who list of actors of color and STILL went with the white guy. So much for diversity. I guess two brown leads would have tanked the movie right? Boring,” he wrote on Instagram.
