No, this isn’t Andrew Garfield’s twin. Lukas Dhont isn’t a menswear model either but he could be. The acclaimed Belgian auteur is already a multi-award winner (Cannes Grand Prix and Caméra d’Or) in his field thanks to his directorial effort in Close, which was nominated for Best International Feature Film at this year’s Academy Awards. The 31-year-old, who appeared at Hollywood’s biggest night in support of his film, didn’t pander to the tepid penguin-hued suiting that men usually serve at such affairs. Dhont had the help of Prada to custom a few menswear swerves in a single fit that was anything but yawn-inducing. A classic DB suit was styled with a few surprises namely a matching sequin-embellished shirt and necktie that was paired with similarly styled gloves. There was also that a peek from the stark blackness of a bright red turtleneck top to match Dhont’s killer good looks. In addition, there were also a few more bling worth noting such as those iconic Quatre earrings on his ears by Boucheron. And you thought menswear styles on the red carpet already peaked.
