Chris Rock and Will Smith looked well-dressed tonight at the 2022 Oscars at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
Rock arrived on stage in a blue velvet tuxedo jacket and matching pants to present the award for Best Documentary. Paired with a white suit, black bow tie and shiny black brogues, the comedian’s look was both dapper and part of classic evening dress codes.
Smith was also dressed in a black 3-piece Dolce and Gabbana suit, with a matching tuxedo jacket and waistcoat, over a white shirt. Rounding out his ensemble are sparkling tie jewelry from Cartier.
However, the evening took a turn for the worse once Rock made a joke at Jada Pinkett-Smith’s expense about her hair – not keeping her alopecia diagnosis in mind. Smith arrived on stage and quickly slapped Rock in the face, creating one of the most viral moments of the night. The occasion drew plenty of reactions from famous members of the public, which have now gone viral – especially those of Lupita Nyong’o, Beyoncé and Nicole Kidman.
Shortly after, Smith won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Richard Williams – father of superstar tennis players Serena and Venus Williams – in the drama ‘King Richard’. During his acceptance speech, Smith stressed the importance of protecting loved ones, thanked the Williams family and apologized to those in attendance — as well as the Academy — for the previous moment with Rock.
