Michael Sheen Always Looking Good in Formal Wear

Michael Sheen Knows How to Wear a Tuxedo!

Michael Sheen Knows How to Wear a Tuxedo!

If you’ve seen actor Michael Sheen at any awards show, the Oscars, DGA and this year’s BAFTA Awards, then you know that he’s one actor who simply gets the men’s formal wear thing. He’s a smart guy who is always smartly dressed, setting a standard for anyone else who appears in the camera frame or on the stage with him.

At Home

Sheen simply looks right at home in his tux. Compare him to Chairman of BAFTA Los Angeles Nigel Lythgoe on his right and director Tom Hooper on his left. All three look good, but Sheen seems to be a natural in black tie. That’s not an easy thing for many actors to pull off. It’s not that he simply looks good or spiffy or cool. The man looks comfortable. Like he’s been born to be in a Noel Coward play.

The Right Stuff?

Is it that simple? Does Sheen simply have the right stuff when it comes to donning men’s formal wear? That may be part of it, but the other part is he has got the right fit for his body.

The tuxedo jacket flows naturally from his shoulders down to below his chest where it buttons, framing the tuxedo shirt and tie perfectly. Neither Lythgoe in his tuxedo nor Hopper in his suit are able to pull that off.

Catch Sheen

You can catch Sheen and all the other celebs who were at the BAFTA Los Angeles 2010 Britannia Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on November 4, 2010 in Century City, California, on TV Guide Channel on November 7th, 2010.

It’s said that Sheen was the hit of the show. He tore up the place with a barrage of one-liners. However, due to their nature, they may not ne aired. In any case, you can see great men’s formal wear style in the accomplished actor. It may be worth a look.

“Chairman of BAFTA Los Angeles Nigel Lythgoe, actor Michael Sheen, and director Tom Hooper arrive at the BAFTA Los Angeles 2010 Britannia Awards.”
