You know how some people feel about shoes–that they have to have the perfect pair to match each and every outfit imaginable? Samuel L. Jackson seems to feel that way about hats; the man always, and we mean always, matches his hat to his outfit. Even though he’s not always in the most trendy of ensembles, Jackson clearly cares about fashion in his own way. And while it was a bit unusual to hear that the actor will be hosting a fashion ball in London next month, we weren’t completely blown out of the water.
Women’s Wear Daily reports that the fashion ball, to be held on the first day of the London Collections: Men on June 15, is a benefit for One for the Boys–an organization that raises awareness and funds to educate men about the different types of cancers that can affect them. Samuel L. Jackson is the chairman.
During the event, Jackson is set to transform from chairman into model, and will walk the runway with fellow actors Simon Pegg, Luke Evans, Tom Hiddleston, and David Walliams in various looks from Fendi, Alexander McQueen, and Y-3. No word yet on whether he’ll be sporting a hat on the runway, but if he does, we know the coordination will be on point, as always.
