Chris Rock is giving us plenty to talk about at the Oscars tonight, from his comedic take on this year's lack of racial diversity to some subtle commentary on why men aren't asked what they're wearing on the red carpet.

But just because no one asked, doesn't mean we don't care. The actor and comedian took the stage in custom Burberry to host the 88th annual Academy Awards, complete with a white one button tuxedo jacket, black tailored trousers, and a bow tie.

"It's clean and modern and the fit was just perfect," said Rock in a press release.
