OH CANADA: THE CANADIAN TUX



Perfecting the Canadian tuxedo is an art.

Britney & Justin were the first duo to step out in full Canadian tux, and on the red carpet no less. Their denim looks to the 2001 American Music Awards changed the game, forever upping the standards of denim! Also, major #relationshipgoals. Since then, tons of celebs have followed in their footsteps.

Kylie styles hers with ­a white crop top & animal print thigh high boots.

Selena goes for a teeny white top too, but slightly more elegant with classic sunglasses and a trench-style jacket.

Kanye & Amber (major #tbt) style theirs with mix & matched denim pieces and basic t-shirts.

Bella goes full utilitarian style in a one-piece jumpsuit. The embroidered roses give it a feminine touch. We’re obsessed with this G.I. Jane look!

Katy & Riff Raff go for a full-blown copy of Britney & Justin. Copying is the highest form of flattery, eh?

O CANADA: LE TUXEDO CANADIEN


Perfectionner le tuxedo canadien est un art en soi.

Britney et Justin étaient le premier duo à sortir en tuxedo canadien complet sur le tapis rouge. Les looks en denim des American Music Awards en 2001 ont vraiment créé un précédent. En plus, #couplegoals. Depuis, des tonnes de célébrités ont suivi l’exemple.

Kylie porte le sien avec un haut court et des bottes mi-cuisses léopard.

Selena porte le sien aussi avec un petit haut court blanc, mais son look est un peu plus élégant avec des lunettes classiques et un trench.

Kanye & Amber (méga retour dans le passé) portaient leur look avec du denim mélangé et des t-shirts essentiels.

Bella perfectionne son look utilitaire avec une combinaison. Les roses brodées ajoutent une touche féminine. On est complètement obsédés avec le look à la G.I. Jane.

Katy Perry & Riff Raff ont complètement copié la version originale de Britney et Justin. L’imitation est une forme sincère de flatterie!
