Darren Criss joined many lovely ladies on the red carpet at The Hollywood Palladium, to honour Katy Perry at the ‘Trevor Live’ event in California on Sunday evening.

We are used to seeing men don a suit, but Darren decided upon an unexpected carpet look.

He wore an Emporio Armani Spring 2013 knit double-breasted navy jacket with gold buttons; styled with a light-blue shirt, grey pants and a maroon The Tie Bar tie.

Black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘James loafers with a metal toe-cap and tassel details completed his look.

I love the this geek chic look. It almost has a back-to-school feel to it.
