Alain Delon in wing collar

Izzy had never seen anyone wear an unbuttoned wing-collar shirt before, but at Cannes French film star Alain Delon nearly pulls it off—but certainly not the unkempt haircut or blinged-up lapel pin.


  1. I’ve never seen anyone actually pull it off in reality, either. I’ve seen guys attempt it going “black tie optional” – but this is a new one. It’s a neat idea, though – give him points for originality, at least!
