He might be one of Hollywood’s rising actors of the moment but Common did something slightly out of place with his wardrobe at the CNN Heroes awards this week.
The 45-year-old actor and musician rocked an emerald green suede suit over a black turtleneck and he came out looking more like auntie’s favourite curtains. Whilst the combination isn’t an issue, the high sheen suede did little for Common’s usually on-point looks.
Simply ditching the suede finish would have worked in the actor’s favour here as the issue isn’t so much the hue but the texture which adds a bit too much contrast to folds and creases, an effect that is further amplified under the bright lights of camera flashes and spotlights.
Not even Common’s kicks could save the day here with a pair of laceless black suede sneakers which looked oddly out of place against rolled-up leg sleeves.
You win some, you lose some. We still love you, Common.
