Brazilian jewelry designer / socialite Luigi Tadini—full name Gian Luigi de Almeida Prado Tadini—is one of those rare fellows who can pull off an ascot. You might say he’s carved out something of a niche in the offbeat neckwear department.

Tadini, a sometime model who also had a small role in *The Devil Wears Prada*, describes his style as “a mix between a young Mick Jagger and 40 year-old Cary Grant and perhaps a little Alain Delon”. The man knows his references, at least.

The other night at a Riverkeeper benefit he co-hosted with *Inheriting Beauty* hottie Amanda Hearst (pictured), he had a characteristically individualistic take on the bowtie trend.

Along with his custom-made Carlos Campos black-on-black patterned evening suit with satin lapels and a ticket pocket, he wore an eye-popping bow by Tibi—who also designed Hearst’s dress.

Oh, and the hand on the hip thing? Relax, he’s foreign.
