As the bassist of U2, Clayton has had sufficient opportunity to get some major suits off each on- and offstage, of which he would seem to have primarily seized. He, like Clooney, played it pretty safe and sound all through the official portrait with a bowtie and tux, which he swapped out for a floral printed jacket and cummerbund for the bash. A tiny something!
3. Bono of U2
Admittedly, the Kennedy Middle Honors (or any other lifetime accomplishment ceremony) is likely not the perfect location for a large trend change-up—especially when you are as devoted to uniform dressing as Bono. Tinted sunglasses and small hoop earrings are his issue. The round rose-colored glasses are a awesome contact, but can you envision if he’d whipped out some ill Matsuda lenses or unusual Mild Monster frames for the occasion?
2. Larry Mullen Jr. of U2
Drummers tend to be the coolest-looking customers of any presented band, and Mullen sent on this entrance. Important ups to his thin-ribboned Western bow tie—a passionate and form of poetic accent that, if I had my druthers, definitely ought to have a big crimson carpet comeback following year, in a Daniel Day-Lewis at the 1994 Golden Globes form of way. Can make for a best “grown-up art kid” appear.
1. The Edge of U2
But then we have The Edge, who positively freaked this White Household formal gown code. A bolo tie, baubled lapels, his signature cranium cap, monk-strap shoes… This is the sort of outfit you can take a life span achievement award in and continue to hold the twinkle in your eye.
