Leslie Odom Jr. found his fame with the musical Hamilton, and since then he hypnotized the masses with his wonderful voice.
In an editorial-worthy manner, the actor and singer brought the style and color to the BAFTAs 2021 virtual red carpet.
To spice things up, there were two changes of clothes: for the red carpet, Odom Jr. chose a tailored Versace ensemble from the Fall 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection, boasting the brand’s new signature print. Everything in eclectic red, yellow, brown and light blue tones.
The look was accessorized with a Versace Medusa Head ring on his right index finger, a gold Versace band ring on his left ring finger and Versace black Greca motive platform loafers.
For the performance look, Leslie opted for louche tailoring, dressing in a red trench, light blue blazer, matching pants from the Spring 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection and a colorful turtleneck reminiscent of this model from the Pre-Fall 2021 collection.

The actor was nominated in the category Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance as Sam Cooke in “One Night in Miami…“
One Night in Miami… is a 2020 American drama film directed by Regina King in her feature film directorial debut with a screenplay by Kemp Powers based on his stage play of the same name.
The film is a fictionalized account of a February 1964 meeting of Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke in a room at the Hampton House, celebrating Ali‘s surprise title win over Sonny Liston.
