'Slumdog' cleans up nice

Dev Patel, the 18-year-old star of Best Picture winner Slumdog Millionaire, was dressed quite dapperly at the Oscars, wearing a custom-tailored tuxedo by Burberry.

The British actor, here along with co-star Freida Pinto, was one of the best dressed men on the red carpet. The tailoring on the suit had to be impeccable due to Patel's very slight build, otherwise it would've looked ill fitted and cheap. I love the one button jacket, it's young and fashion forward. The lapels stand out just enough from the rest of the jacket and the bib on the shirt is clean and crisp.

Fun fact- Patel has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and was a bronze medalist at the 2004 Martial Arts World Championships in Dublin.
