Until their recent, fabulous appearance in matching tuxedos, I was always fairly immune to the Brad and Angelina effect. For some reason, they just haven’t done it for me. But with those matching tuxedos and complementary bow ties – hers undone, his awkwardly placed around the teeniest of collars – at the BAFTAs last week, it seems I’ve become a victim of their ridiculous adorableness. As it happens, this was no ordinary red carpet affair: Brad wore his hair extremely short on the sides and modeled a stunning, shawl collar dinner suit by Valentino, while Angelina looked glowingly beautiful in Saint Laurent.
What impressed me most is the way Pitt stood out on the red carpet amid a sea of equally beautiful suits. Whether it was the shawl collar, the startling hair style, the tiny collar or the tuxedo’s excellent fit, something about his outfit just worked – extremely well. This might sound coy, but perhaps it’s the magic of being married to possibly the world’s most beautiful woman (yes, a Vanity Fair poll did once name her the modern Helen of Troy). Either way, click on “Get the Look” for a similarly ravishing, shawl collar tuxedo from A Suit That Fits.
