Armie Hammer Is Wearing Giorgio Armani at the 2018 Oscars
The 'Call Me By Your Name' actor is presenting during the awards ceremony.
As much as we were hoping that Armie Hammer would opt for an upscale riff on a track suit (hey, the Errnengildo Zegna Couture Red Carpet collection includes tuxedo-stripe track pants), he opted for a custom tux by Giorgio Armani instead—albeit in red velvet. Maybe the plush fabric is a little wink to his love of comfort dressing? Hammer also went for Giorgio Armani shoes and accessorized with a rose gold Montblanc watch and cuff links.
"The color is a a deep red," says his stylist, Ilaria Urbinati. "I had them do it completely all-red. No black contrast lapel and no black tux stripe on the pant. I said 'all red' because the black contrast would have skewed too Hugh Hefner or into vampire territory. And then we did a notch lapel rather than a shawl or peak lapel because it’s more chill, so it tones the look down.”
Hammer stars in the best picture nominated film, Call Me By Your Name. He is also a presenter at the awards ceremony.
The 90th Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, airs live on ABC at 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET.
