Forest Whitaker’s Fashion Emergency
While most of us can’t tell one tuxedo from another, for stylish men like Best Actor Nominee Forest Whitaker, they can still cause a fashion emergency. The Last King of Scotland star has been pretty loyal to designer Arnold Brandt for ensembles this awards season, but that doesn’t guarantee that the actor is immune to fashion mix-ups from the label. The custom-made black mink and cashmere dinner jacket with tuxedo trousers the Whitaker wore to the BAFTAs was actually meant for his SAG Awards appearance back in January– but he was originally mistakenly sent navy slacks instead of the black ones that matched the jacket. Luckily, he had a change of clothes handy for the SAGs and was able to use the Arnold Brandt black tux for his London appearance. Now, the real question is what will he be wearing to the Oscars on Sunday?
