Jared Leto Rocks Pink Tuxedo For ‘House of Gucci’ Premiere, And We’re Fashionably Jealous

Think pink. That seems to have been the mindset Jared Leto was in when he chose his outfit for the Los Angeles premiere of House of Gucci. The Oscar-winning actor rocked a pink satin tuxedo from the label’s spring 2022 collection and accessorized it with bedazzled, black lace gloves and white boots.

It was quite the glamorous transformation for the 49-year-old star, who played Gucci design chief Paolo Gucci in the film. To take on the role, Leto had to don heavy prosthetics, a fat suit, and a receding hairline. He also incorporated Gucci’s accent and mannerisms into his interpretation of the iconic Italian fashionista.

“You make a commitment to something like that, you dive in deep, and it’s not like you take a shower and you wash it all away,” Leto told The Hollywood Reporter. “There are remnants. There’s a lot of work inside and out. Even speaking with a different accent for a long time, you use different muscles. Accents are just a different way of making shapes in your mouth. Using your body in a different way, so if you train yourself to speak a different way, it can take a minute to let go of things but I think that’s okay.”

The biographical crime drama directed by Ridley Scott and based on the book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden also stars Lady Gaga and Adam Driver – though Leto topped them all on this particular red carpet. Dare we say we’re pink with envy?
