We deliberately held off on posting this last week because we knew we’d need to deploy it once the strike was called. The men of Oppenheimer (some of them, anyway; it’s a big cast) put on their favorite suits (or the suits handed to them by their stylists) and hit the red carpet in London for the big – and only – premiere. We are sorry to report that color was not on the menu. This is the Un-Barbie red carpet.
Cillian Murphy in Saint Laurent
This whole look works better in theory than in practice. As much as we appreciate the choice of a sheer dress shirt, we don’t think it’s the kind of garment over which you can wear a heavy suit jacket. It just looks weird. It’s possible it would all have been improved if he’d simply buttoned the jacket, but even then, we cannot support the use of a string tie. No, sir. Not ever.
Josh Hartnett in Gucci
Imagine getting a free suit from Gucci and showing up in it like this. Why are the pants so huge on him? Why is the shirt such a mess? Why does his hair look like that? Even his watch is crooked, for Pete’s sake. This feels like one of those instances of working too hard to convey a carefully cultivated “I’m above this” stance.
It’s a nice enough suit, but why on earth does he have all three buttons done up? You look like a butler.
Matt Damon in Dolce & Gabbana
He’s really into wearing undershirts with nice suits lately. We’re not furious at this, but we don’t think it does anything for him.
The boots are nice. That’s all we’ve got. He used to try harder.
Robert Downey Jr. in Tom Ford
It’s a really great suit but the line of the pants is ruined by his ever-present wedge heel shoe lifts.
