Herein follows the Great Tragedy of Idris Elba. You see, the famous movie star and international sex symbol quite clearly prefers to do his promotional work in as leisurely an outfit as any situation allows and will happily hit a red carpet in sweats and sneakers if someone lets him. Now, people should be free to wear the things that make them happiest and most comfortable. You might think two bitchy fashion bloggers such as we wouldn’t be so astonishingly kind-hearted and open-minded about such things, but it’s true. The tragedy of Idris Elba is not that he loves himself the leisurewear…
It’s that he looks so fucking stunning in formal wear. Granted, we suppose we should be grateful for these blessings when they happen, but on the rare occasion he steps out in a tux looking like God created him for that purpose, we whine, “WHY CAN’T YOU DRESS LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME, IDRIS?”
LOVE that blazer.
