Richard Armitage joined Cate Blanchett and Yao Chen on the red carpet for ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ world premiere in Wellington, New Zealand.

The actor, who you may not recognise instantly as he has been sporting a beard for over a year, wore a midnight-blue Zegna peaked-lapel suit.

A white dress shirt, a satin maroon tie with a gold pin, and perforated brown lace-up shoes completed his look.

He looks very handsome, don’t you agree?
