The Oscar winner’s fashion sense has certainly changed since his first red carpet appearances.
When you think of George Clooney, the image of a silver fox wearing a tuxedo on a red carpet may come to mind.
But just like his romantic life, the “Midnight Sky” actor’s sense of style has gone through some changes over the years. Looking back at his early photo-ops, you’ll see leather jackets, long hair and a whole lot of denim.
