We know our blog is read by industry insiders and by the lads we post on, thus we submit this open letter to all the male talent:
May we recommend to all the gentleman attending the Oscars and walking the red carpet Sunday: WEAR A TUXEDO!!
Not a suit, not a sports coat, not a collarless jacket, not jeans-- we don't care if said clothes are by Giorgio Armani or Prada or BOSS or....
WEAR A TUXEDO! Then, it's okay if it is from Giorgio Armani, Prada, BOSS or...
WITH A PROPER BOW TIE!! Not some cross thing that Dracula would don. Or some red satin string at the neck that looks like a misplaced "help a cause" ribbon.
And for fuck's sake, MAKE SURE YOUR PANTS ARE HEMMED PROPERLY!!! A SLIGHT break. Don't have excess fabric pooling at your feet.
If you have waited until this weekend to figure out what to wear, well, heaven help your little soul, it is too late for you. You should have called us!!
Did you know we are stylists? We would keep you from looking disastrous. Classic is our mantra. The regal actor of yesteryear is our icon-- think James Mason; Sidney Poitier.
We can have you red carpet-ready in no time and pull a wardrobe for travel, premieres or just daily duties on the set or locations.
Remember: Black-tie Formal. Not only will you look appropriate, but decades later, when you see images of yourself, you will be thankful!!
