In my whole life, I've worn black tie three times. I can't tie the knot myself. Once, at the premiere of the opera, I got to La Scala before Domenico, and I was hiding in the corner until he arrived, and I said, 'Quick, you have to tie my tie, please!' Otherwise, I'll wear a tuxedo jacket with jeans and my bling-bling cross.

10 QUOTES WITH «TUXEDO»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word tuxedo.
1
Ted Allen
When the idea of 'Chopped' surfaced, it was originally meant to be taped at some guy's mansion with him and his crazy Chihuahua. A stuffy fellow in a tuxedo was to host, and the losing chef's dish was then fed to the dog! I am not kidding, I saw it! I think it is genius! Twisted, but genius!
2
Dan Auerbach
I'm not afraid of the Canadian tuxedo.
3
Roberto Cavalli
In the evening every man looks the same. Like penguins. Women have a special dress for that event; men, the same tuxedo.
4
Lee Van Cleef
Audiences just naturally hate me on screen. I could play a role in a tuxedo, and people would think I was rotten. You can do much more with a villain part.
5
Mac DeMarco
For me, it's all about the Canadian tuxedo, and maybe a bolero. The province I grew up in in Alberta is pretty much the denim capital of Canada. The first premier of Alberta started Grand Western Garment, which Levi's bought later on.
6
Joel Edgerton
Having rain on your tuxedo is a pretty good reminder that you're not James Bond.
7
Noah Emmerich
In the modern world there's no such thing as formality. A dinner jacket used to mean a tuxedo, you know?
8
Paul Feig
Wearing a tuxedo isn't as simple as it sounds. I've been to a lot of award shows in Hollywood over the years and have seen some pretty sad tuxes. It's surprisingly easy to go off the rails.
9
Paul Feig
Getting away from a white or light colored tuxedo shirt is always a little dangerous. Certain staples shouldn't be mixed with. Light pink or blue is not bad, but again, you're just breaking from a classic.
10
Stefano Gabbana
In my whole life, I've worn black tie three times. I can't tie the knot myself. Once, at the premiere of the opera, I got to La Scala before Domenico, and I was hiding in the corner until he arrived, and I said, 'Quick, you have to tie my tie, please!'
