Men are making fashion CHOICES at the 93rd Academy Awards.
LaKeith Stanfield impressed red carpet-watchers on Oscars Sunday in a custom Saint Lauren by Anthony Vaccarello jumpsuit that channelled ’70s glamour.
Nominated for Best Supporting Actor for “Judas and the Black Messiah”, Stanfield was quickly declared one of Oscars’ best dressed on social media, even before most of the stars had walked the carpet either virtually or in person at Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles.
As soon as photos of Stanfield in the immaculately tailored look emerged online, the actor began to trend on Twitter.
“LAKEITH STANFIELD IN SAINT LAURENT. INSTANTLY ON MY GREATEST OF ALL TIME LIST. SEXY. A LITTLE MEAN. HOT. PRISTINE. REVERSE LE SMOKING,” fashion critic Rachel Seville Tashjian wrote.
