Wearing a tux to a black tie event offers a unique option. It’s an iconic look...think of Dietrich, Hepburn and Jagger. Effortlessly cool...always in style and at the same time fashion-forward. Plus, a girl is never cold and she always has pockets.

And, to me, TuxCouture does it better than anyone. It’s the cut of the cigarette pant with a subtle tux stripe, the way the sequined bow tie lays open on a silk bodysuit. The feel of a silk satin jacket lining...and the look of it in lipstick red. To my mind, the LBD has had its day. For a modern evening...bring on the tux."
