Rapper and music producer Pharrell Williams tends to have mixed success with his fashion-forward choices.  This textured Lanvin suit is a bit much and the low-waisted trousers, uncovered waist (emphasized by the open jacket) and absence of socks don’t help. (Getty)

Samuel L. Jackson in  Giorgio Armani (Getty)

Samuel L. Jackson’s penchant for black-tie rule-breaking usually has disastrous results.  This Giorgio Armani outfit is much better than most of his choices but the lack of a contrasting white shirt makes for a monotonous effect especially in comparison to other tuxedoed guests as seen in the photo at the top of the page.   (Getty)
