He's currently turning heads on the red carpet in a suit made from real gold ...
The 'Hamilton' star claimed the suit was made of gold
Leslie Odom and this suit...— Shemar Moore Defender (@Shemar Moore Defender)1619393229.0
It was apparently made with 'silk plated in 24k gold'.
Leslie Odom Jr. just said on TV his suit is actually 24K gold. “The threads were actually dipped in 24K gold.”… https://t.co/SJkWcVhD5p— Ayanna P. (@Ayanna P.)1619393211.0
Ummmm okay the presenter @ Leslie Odom Jr’s 24 k gold suit —- “well we learn new things every day don’t we” ooooooh… https://t.co/HoiD8pTjL3— Hän (@Hän)1619393210.0
It's a bold choice for sure...
What do you think? Is he pulling it off, or is it a bit too much of a flex?
