This really shouldn't work, but it does. David Beckham and Victoria tried it in black leather Versace about 15 years ago, and it's something we'd rather forget. But Brangelina were definitely the hottest couple on the red carpet last night, thanks to their sophisticated bespoke suits – hers by Saint Laurent, his by Valentino.
Of course, it's thanks in no small part to Angelina Jolie's incredible figure and Hollywood looks that this looked as fabulous as it did. Few can pull off louche tailoring quite as well as this. Suits on the red carpet can be a minefield: you only have to think of Celine Dion in her backless white tuxedo at the Oscars, to be reminded. Thankfully, Ange kept it classic.
Obviously, Brad Pitt is made to wear a tux. We have no quibbles with the actor's look at all. And the fact that Ange had to step in at one point to adjust her husband's bow tie, just made us love their matching outfits even more.
The celebrity couple attended the ceremony to support Bad Pitt's movie, 12 Years A Slave, which won Best Film. Although the actor wasn't nominated for an award, he also produced the movie as well as having a supporting role and was tasked with collecting the trophy for the movie.
We hope we get to see these two on the Oscars red carpet – and to see if it's a repeat sartorial performance.
