LaKeith Stanfield's Oscars Jumpsuit Was Made Specially For Him, and It Shows
It can often feel like LaKeith Stanfield is from another time than the one we're currently in. On screen, the mysterious actor time travels with ease, portraying characters from a variety of decades. His red carpet choices are no different.
For the 2021 Academy Awards on April 25, LaKeith, whose performance in Judas and the Black Messiah earned him a nomination for best supporting actor, wore a Saint Laurent jumpsuit that seemed plucked right out of the '70s. A custom design by the brand's creative director Anthony Vaccarello, the jumpsuit featured a slight wide-leg silhouette, and was paired with a white shirt with large lapels, a black belt with a circular gold buckle, a chainlink necklace, and square sunglasses.
"Pulled up to the Oscars lookin like your uncle but since it's a dry bar I'm going back home," the famously candid actor wrote on Instagram. He added, "Good luck to the nominees tho!" See photos of the throwback look ahead.
