David Oyelowo in New York, arriving and departing from “The Today Show” where he discussed his new movie “Digging for Fire.”
Wow. The glasses and the facial hair are really doing it for us. Welcome additions, David. We approve. But please tell us that’s not velvet. Not in New York in August.
If we were advising him – and let’s face it, we like to pretend we are – we’d tell him to stay away from suits for appearances like these, which don’t necessarily require them. That’s kind of ironic, since we spent most of last week yelling at male stars for dressing like slobs on the red carpet, but there is a happy medium to be found. In his case, traditional suiting doesn’t serve him well because he’s barrel-chested and thick-thigh’d. His natural proportions just aren’t served well unless he pays to have all his suits made for him. And a little color would definitely be welcome. All that gray is kind of boring. So for things like morning shows, we’d have recommended a slightly more casual take; perhaps a sports coat over a plaid shirt and some jeans.
