Carrie Bradshaw voice: And just like that, Chadwick Boseman put down a new red carpet and strode over it; an Emperor in new clothes – provided by Donatella Versace, of course.
We’re pretty sure we can count the number of times we’ve covered a Saturday Night Live host’s style choices on one hand, with enough fingers left over to snap, at the very least. It’s not a venue that ever called for high style, and given how stressful an SNL hosting job can be, and how much work they have in front of them at monologue time, most hosts never bother to put much thought into what they’re going to wear for the opener. Most male ones, anyway. But Chadwick’s riding not only a career high but a style high, after a promotional tour that instantly shot him to the top of the best dressed male celebrity lists.
We could do without the sweater – especially that goofy-ass hem. But the ensemble is so strong, so colorful, and so high fashion that we can barely even bring ourselves to acknowledge the parts we don’t like. It’s a stunning look for a time and place when he could have just skated by.
