New York Times rags on George Clooney's lack of red carpet style

Post by Katiedot on Thu Mar 01 2012, 07:36

Hah! Someone at NYT is picking up my thoughts! I roll my eyes almost every time I see George on the red carpet with his baggy trousers and half the time the wrong tie. Ahem. Anyway, I don't agree with the comments that he's gained weight but as to the rest: yes, yes, YES!

Thanks to Henway for making me a happy bunny with this find:

IT’S all about the fit and the details, men’s wear experts like Tom Kalenderian of Barneys New York and Michael Hainey of GQ said in a pre-Oscars article about evening wear for men, “How to Wear a Tux,” that ran in Thursday Styles last week. In particular: a point-to-point fit on the shoulders, a proper trouser break, a flash of white cuff to break the wall of black and accurate collar dimensions to keep guys from looking as if they’re wearing horse collars or a noose.

George Clooney, eagle-eyed readers complained after last week’s article appeared, tends to wear his Armani trousers puddled around his feet and he did it again at Sunday night’s awards. (He also looked as if he should have taken a tip from the ladies and spent the last month pushing away from the table: Mr. Clooney’s suit jacket looked like a corset on a barrel.) Meanwhile, Brian Grazer, the show’s producer, seemed to have borrowed a shirt from his older brother, and Antonio Banderas was one of many who fell into the increasingly common solecism of wearing a businesslike four-in-hand tie with an evening jacket, something that caused Tom Ford to say, “When I see men doing that, I go right up to them and say, ‘This is awful, just wrong.’ ”

Naturally, there were others (like Jean Dujardin, winner of the best actor award for “The Artist”) who strayed toward wing collars, a style best left to the guy carrying the drinks tray. And Billy Crystal, the baloney-colored host, wore anachronistic white tie, as if he were about to set sail for a dinner cruise aboard the Good Ship Lollipop.

Still, there were men who used this impeccable uniform to fine advantage.

Tom Hanks was a walking demonstration of what tailoring is intended to do — everything gravity and the good life can do to a man’s body neatly accounted for in his full-shouldered, double-breasted, six-button Tom Ford tuxedo.

The DreamWorks production designer Raymond Zibach was as crisp and graphic as newsprint (remember that?). Christian Bale, in gangster black, upended convention and yet, mostly because he is as thin as a knife blade, managed to make the suit look suitable and personal, an editorial commentary by a man raised in a circus family on just how respectable show people are obliged to be.

I think that's a bit unfair!!! Georgie looks fab in whatever he does/doesn't wear!!!! He's just needs to grow a little into his trousers!! As for the weight gain, I think he has put on more muscle perhaps than adipose tissue!!!! But in any event, he'll always be the MOST handsome man for me on ANY carpet, whatever colour and whoever with!! Love, love, looooovvvvveeeee him!! Give Flowers2

I think he looks good and I don't mind it if he has put on any weight. I thought he was a little too thin at one stage. No one touches George in a tux!

This has actually been the only pet peeve I have about his style - his pants never look properly tailored for him. I always think he looks best when they dress him for European commercials - the cut and the style are always more current, and fitted. I personally would like to see him change up his tux style a little.

oh my oh my oh my

I was laughing about the article - ok ? !

George looks always great - whatever he wears

(except the bike ride in Laglio before he
was honored (Bob-Hope), but I know it was not
his idea)

I think George looks hot all the time. I'm glad he gained a little weight he was starting to look a bit skinny. Maybe that's how he likes to wear his pants?? To be honest I'm not looking at his ankles when he is on the red carpet drool3
