Eddie Redmayne Wears Chinos With a Tux and It’s Incredibly Relatable

In this, what you might call the party phase of the pandemic, people are hanging out, getting formal, and dressing up. It’s like we want to make up for two years of sweats by overdoing it. Well, accept that invite and pull out your tux. But don’t just dust it off and throw it on. Unless you’re invited to a party with a red carpet, you should get playful with your black tie. For inspiration, we turn to Eddie Redmayne who recently rocked a wide-shawl lapel tux jacket with something every man has in their closet — a pair of straight-leg chinos. The look is surprisingly effective and kind of cool in a dad way (Eddie has two young children, so that checks out). Here’s how you too can pull off this interesting formal look.

Eddie Redmayne Was Bummed When He Thought The Media Had Spoiled A Fantastic Beasts 3 Scene, But Instead Hilariously Mistook It For A Famous Batman Set

When it comes to making blockbuster movies, there are few things more important than managing spoilers. Major tentpole releases go to extreme lengths to try and avoid details being leaked out before they are ready. When it came to the newest of the Harry Potter movies, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, Eddie Redmayne thought that the film’s opening had been spoiled thanks to overzealous media, but details remained hidden because the leaked images were mistaken for the Batcave.

Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law And The Fantastic Beasts Stars Hilariously Debate The Pros And Cons Of Adopting Magical Creatures

As the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expands out with the third Fantastic Beasts film, playing in theaters as you read this, it’s easy to forget that in its infancy, this spinoff franchise centered around a magizoologist (played by Eddie Redmayne) who was more comfortable being around strange creatures than he was interacting with muggles or wizards. Thanks to everything we have learned in the first two Fantastic Beasts movies, there is a lot more at stake as we head into Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, but we wanted to make sure that the Beasts at the heart of the series don’t get forgotten.
