Justin Timberlake in Tom Ford. The paisley patterned jacket is a stylish touch but the tall waistcoat and low-slung trousers ruin much of the overall effect. (Getty)
Whatever shiny accessory “Downton Abbey” star Dan Stevens is wearing under his Hugo Boss jacket is not doing him any favours.
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’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.
