The hardest thing about dressing for cold weather is making sure that your outerwear matches the occasion, which is why I’m going to give Bradley Cooper a mini-pass for tossing a puffer jacket over his perfectly good suit, undermining the whole look.
Heading to a screening of new movie Maestro, where he later joined a panel to take questions from a live audience at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, Cooper looked super suave in a brown three-piece suit and slightly less brown suede boots.
