The “Fifth Estate” star mingled with royalty (of the Hollywood and English variety) when he attended the Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace on Tuesday and stood out from the crowd in a dashing black-and-white suit that rivaled Prince William’s attire.
Cumberbatch was an excellent study on how to sport formalwear to a black tie event: The tuxedo and bow-tie are classic go-tos which “The Hobbit” star paired with a simple combed hairstyle. (And really, that’s all you need.)
Cumberbatch, who was in London, recently reconnected by phone with his Tinker, Tailor co-star Gary Oldman, who was on a fishing trip in western France.
GARY OLDMAN: Can you hear me, Cumby? I have a slight hiss on the line, but I’ll battle through it.
BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH: You sound distant.
OLDMAN: I’m in Saint-Martin-de-Ré on a fishing trip.
CUMBERBATCH: Oh, how lovely and amazing.
OLDMAN: I’m with my family and we’re getting ready to do a bit of sea fishing.
CUMBERBATCH: Oh, I’m so jealous.
OLDMAN: Anyhow, I’ll speak up.
