Emmy Awards 2017: Donald Glover Worked a Purple Gucci Tux, Which is Now a Thing We Want

We have to admit, we’re jealous as hell:

Because we’re pretty sure we wouldn’t look one-tenth as fine as Mr. Glover does in a purple tuxedo. And let’s be clear: this is no aubergine or eggplant. This is full-on Prince Purple and it looks fabulous. LOVE the touch of yellow in the pocket square. The jacket’s a tiny bit too long on him, but that’s our only quibble. It’s hard to make a tux look fresh – and coloring it in with crayons is not always the best way to go. But this really works beautifully for him. All others should probably consider approaching purple tuxes with the caution they require.
