Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe arrived in New York today presumably ahead of Monday’s MET Gala. He’s been before. But never as the Best Actor. The MET Gala will be the first major red carpet he’s been on since winning the Oscar in February. And before that, you’ll recall, it was MONTHS of red carpets and screenings which, obviously, paid off.
Ahead of the MET Gala, we usually find out the celebrity-designer pairings. Last year, he wore Burberry. The year before it was Dior. At this point, not just because he’s the reigning Oscar king but because he just has suuuuuch great style, everyone will want to dress him. He’s one of the few men you wait for on a red carpet; what he wears – the colour, the cut, all of it – is almost as interesting as any of the dresses. God. You remember Katie Holmes last year? You’d rather see more Eddie Redmaynes than Katie Holmes.
