They seriously look like the king and queen in a set of African-inspired playing cards.

But we’re afraid we’re going to have to proclaim those pants to be officially Not Working For Us.

That’s a near-impossible shape to pull off. And it’s not helped at all by the fact that it’s rendered in a pale blue, because it tends to drag the eye to it and it tends to stand out more because it isn’t a color to be found anywhere else in her ensemble except the earrings – and they’re pretty awkward as well.

The top and the head wrap are stunning – and we adore her for bringing something different – and more importantly, diverse – to the red carpet world, but we’re afraid the pants situation here is not a winner.

He continues to wear his suits too tight and we continue to not like shirts that match their suits. Even so, we still love this look. First, because the color and print of the suit make it so unusual – and so far from the usual “hedge fund manager at happy hour” look of most male stars on the RC. Second, because that pocket square makes the look.
