In the course of bestowing the two MOTHs he’s pocketed so far—for an elegant all-black ensemble and the apex of equestrian chic—we issued a caveat about Alan Cumming’s occasionally overly theatrical tendencies in matters of dress. He is a quirky actor type after all, but once in a while these unfortunate propensities seem to get the better of him.

Take the outfit he sported to the Cinema Society’s screening of Sir Ben Kingsley‘s new flick *Elegy* the other night—an otherwise *comme il fault* symphony in gray by Nicole Farhi which he obliterated by deciding to dispense with a shirt entirely.

Perhaps his drycleaners are to blame, but we doubt it. Any more stunts like this pal, and we’re docking you a MOTH. Consider yourself warned.
