What Might George Clooney Wear to the Oscars?


Unlike his other nominees, you can pretty much expect what George Clooney might wear to the Oscars. While Brad Pitt has changed up his red carpet look often over the years, and Gary Oldman has hardly settled on his own signature style, Clooney is always there with pure, consistent class: An Armani tuxedo, tailored just so, very dark wool-usually alongside peak lapels and a bow tie-as it should be for this sort of ceremony. Lately, though, Clooney’s been questioning his own bachelor-for-life status (thanks to Stacy Keibler) and, on a more stylistic note, switching up his evening game in small ways. At the Orange British Academy Film Awards, he walked the carpet in a fantastic topcoat; at the SAG awards, he swapped his usual routine for a shawl collar tuxedo worn with a standard necktie. And in closer relation to the Academy Awards, he showed up to the nominee luncheon wearing a smart grey suit with an 80s-style cut that reminded us of his ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ casino-wheeling days. That last one is a day look, to be certain, and we’re predicting that ‘The Descendants’ star will use The Oscars, as he has for years now, to show up and show off in a peak lapel tuxedo with the perfect finishing touches. Though, it would be nice if he were to pull that shawl collar that he’s been wearing lately out from his closet. Perhaps, this time, he could up his own game by wearing that with one of those bow ties he knows how to knot so well.
