Clive Owen in Armani in the movie "Duplicity"Based on the activity on the Forum, it seems like our readers are very, very interested in trying to identify what celebrities are wearing, both in real life and in movies. In general, there’s more interest in female celebs, but when we got these great pictures of Clive Owen in the new movie Duplicity, I thought that this was something you ladies would like to see. Or at least something I wanted to spend some time looking at and thinking about. Ahem.

Working with multiple-Oscar-nominated costume designer Albert Wolsky, it was actually Owen’s own idea to contact his friend Giorgio Armani to dress him for his role as a spy-turned-corporate operative. Starring opposite famed Armani fan Julia Roberts, the couple find themselves on opposite sides of a huge corporate war and see their trust in each other and in their relationship challenged. And they both look fabulous doing it, naturally. Owen has said that as soon as he got the role, his thoughts went directly to wearing Armani for it. In his mind, the clothes needed a certain movement, and he thought he knew where to find it, with the help of Wolsky.

What was most surprising to me is the extent to which Armani dressed Owen for the film – I was expecting little more than a few Made-to-Measure suits, for which Armani is most famous in men’s clothing. But the brand also provided shoes, Armani Prive watches, jeans, and even bamboo-fabricated t-shirts, just to name a few things. As a female, I’m somewhat ignorant of the designer offerings available to men, I’ll freely admit. But if how hot Mr. Clive Owen looks is any indication, maybe I will become more interested in the near future.

Side note – how perfect is his stubble? I, personally, think he has the world’s most perfect 5 o’clock shadow. But hey, that’s just me.

    They say clothes make the man…. However, I think Clive makes these suits… of course, he could be wearing a flour sack and still look hot…
