Tomorrow night the stars will shine at the Oscars in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, we won’t get to see Mr. A on the red carpet at this year’s Academy Awards, but fingers crossed for next year. Because what that man does for a tux ain’t nobody’s business. Or, for that matter, for a suit. Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man, right?
And a sharp-dressed man needs to know how to work it, just like the ladies do. Here’s some advice the lovely Ilaria Urbinati, who styled our Richard for his Hobbit press junket and red carpet appearances, gave in an article for the Hollywood Reporter:
Men can’t be slouches, either. Notes stylist Ilaria Urbinati, who works with best actor nominee Bradley Cooper: “For a suit to look its best, it’s all about creating angles with your limbs. So a little bend in the knee and a little bend in the elbow with hand in pocket is always good. But the hand can’t be shoved too deep in the pocket or it creates bulk. Also, a little bit of lean to one side adds shape and movement, which always photographs best. A good example is Eddie Redmayne — he’s got his stance down.”
Love ya, Eddie, but I prefer RA’s stance. And, well–everything else! *sigh*
