Kempt Man of the Hour: Tahar Rahim
There was a lot of good style on display last night, between Guy Pearce doing his best Thom Browne impression and Morgan Freeman completing his transformation into one of the coolest people in Hollywood, but our favorite had to be Tahar Rahim, star of the French gangster opus A Prophet.
The movie’s only playing in a handful of screens, and his chances of becoming a household name are just about slim to none, but somehow he managed to land the best tuxedo in Hollywood last night. Thanks to a particularly 70s-inspired vest, he manages to turn the uniform of the Oscars into something playful, without ever looking older than he is. Not bad, given he was sharing the red carpet with none other than Tom Ford.
