At last night’s 89th Academy Awards, Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight landed the Oscar for Best Picture. Just about, after presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty announced La La Land as the winner of the night’s biggest award, with cast and crew flooding the stage. Before everyone slowly realised the mistake.
Cue confusion, chaos and plenty of embarrassed faces. One thing you may not have noticed in all the commotion was that when the Moonlight cast did eventually accept the award, four members of the cast – Naomie Harris, Trevante Rhodes, Alex R. Hibber and Ashton Sanders (who sat front row at Simons’ debut show) – were all wearing custom Calvin Klein outfits designed by the brand’s new chief creative officer, Raf Simons.
“I was honored to be able to work with the cast of ‘Moonlight’ and to celebrate the incredible talent of each of these actors and the amazing body of work that the film represents,” Simons said in a statement.
Whilst Rhodes, Sanders and Hibbert were all decked out in sharp tuxedos, Harris wore a classic strapless white gown from the new By Appointment collection.
