At last night’s Golden Globes ceremony, Irish actor Barry Keoghan hit the carpet wearing a custom red-and-black-checked Louis Vuitton suit. The Johnny Rotten-inspired getup was befit with a cropped jacket and tapered pants, festooned with pearl strands and diamond brooches from Tiffany, and supplemented by the Saltburn star’s spiked-up skin fade.

I don’t have any socks,’” recounts Urbinati, laughing. “He ended up borrowing my husband’s underwear, which he was not super excited about, so we kept busting his balls about it.” (For the record, Urbinati asked for Keoghan’s permission to share this anecdote: “Barry’s the best because he’s game. He doesn’t care.”)
