SAG Awards 2016: Idris Elba in Ermenegildo Zegna

Posted on February 01, 2016

Actor Idris Elba, winner of Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for “Beasts of No Nation,” and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for “Luther,” poses in the press room during the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

 

We caused a brief twitter meltdown when we live-tweeted that he’d shown up for the SAG Awards in a Zegna suit but apparently, no underwear.

You never scrolled so fast in your life, did you? Perhaps we were seeing shadows where there were none. We stand corrected on the issue of his commando-ness.

As for the suit, it’s gorgeous, but we find it hard to believe that it’s made-to-measure. Seems a bit rumpled and poorly fitted for bespoke, no? We’d expect a suit that costs as much as a used car to have a little more sharpness to it.  Also, while we love a cheeky pair of blue shoes, we don’t think they were the right choice for a blue-gray suit paired with a blue tie. There are other colors in the rainbow, Idris.

You’re not reading this. You’re just sitting there mad at us that we led you to believe you were gonna see some Idris d today. Shame on you, you brazen hussies. We’re all about decorum and shit around here.
