Did anyone else just experience déjà vu? That’s because the tuxedo-inspired look seems to be a go-to red carpet outfit for the actress, as she’s worn it at countless events dating back as far as 1989, when she wore a black pinstriped suit with beaded lapels to the New York City premiere of Steel Magnolias.
The actress proved her love of the look by wearing another suit just a few days later; this time a black skirt suit with a long jacket and gold detailing on the lapels, pockets, and cuffs. She recycled that outfit less than a year later for the Hollywood premiere of Flatliners.
And in case you thought it was only dark suits she had a penchant for, Roberts stepped out in a very Pretty Woman light pink skirt suit with aggressive shoulder blades in 1991 for the premiere of Rush.
The ensuing years saw more striped suits, and even a pantsuit, which brings us to 2006, when she wore a full-on black tuxedo with a ruffled blouse to the Critics’ Choice Awards. That seems to have cemented her love of tuxedos.
In the past few years, the Oscar-winning actress has made very few red carpet appearances, but when we do see her, it’s almost guaranteed that we are going to see a semblance of suit. Throughout 2010, she wore three different suits to three different promotional events for Eat, Pray, Love. One was a black jacket with matching shorts — very similar to the outfit she wore to the Lancôme event on April 19, while the others were a white three-piece pantsuit and a black skirt suit.
In 2013, she brought the tuxedo jacket back, and wore it over a white button down and black skirt that mimicked coattails for the premiere of August: Osage County. And for one of her more recent appearances, in 2015, she wore a black tuxedo jacket over a white lace dress.
We think it’s safe to say she feels at home in a suit. And while many people wouldn’t be able to pull off such a distinct style over and over again, the most beautiful woman in the world most definitely can.
