  • Momoa’s pink velvet tuxedo was actually custom-made by the late designer himself, Bonet revealed on the red carpet.

The late designer Karl Lagerfeld lived on, on Oscars night through “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa.

Momoa wore a pink velvet tuxedo to the 91st Academy Awards on Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in LA.

The actor’s wife, Lisa Bonet, revealed that her husband’s outfit was actually custom-made for him by Lagerfeld himself, while she was wearing an ankle-length dress from the designer’s last Fendi Couture collection.

“We have the honour of wearing Karl Lagerfeld, he designed Jason’s tux personally for him, and this is from his last couture collection from Fendi,” Bonet said on the ABC red carpet pre-show.

Momoa teamed the tuxedo with brown patent leather boots, plenty of jewellery, and a matching velvet Fendi scrunchie on his wrist – which sent fans suitably wild.

Karl Lagerfeld died in hospital in Paris last Tuesday aged 85. The designer was best known as Chanel’s creative director. He also worked for Fendi and had his own fashion label, Karl Lagerfeld.
