'Hot Diggity Damn!': Carlin Channels Hollywood Icons In 'Bachelorette' Entrance

Sometimes, a dazzling red carpet appearance doesn't need any gimmicks, bells or whistles.

Forget bringing llamas, puppies or homemade gifts when you're trying to impress someone on national TV. If you've got a white tuxedo in your wardrobe, you're already ahead of the pack.

As Carlin exited his limousine and strolled down the red carpet in a crisp ivory dinner jacket, our new Bachelorette Angie Kent audibly gasped.

"Hot diggity damn, he is one good looking sort," she said after their magical introduction.

"That white suit was just like ahhhhh," she sang as though angels were circling overhead, celebrating the glorious moment.

And you can't blame a girl because, historically, white tuxedo jackets are the favoured outfits of suave characters that ooze confidence, and are either international spies or sexy archaeologists.

Sean Connery in 'Goldfinger'

Along with Humphrey Bogart in 'Casablanca', Sean Connery is one of the OG ivory dinner jacket pioneers. Debuting this now iconic James Bond look for 1964's 'Goldfinger', Sean helped white tuxedos become synonymous with ~elegance~.

Harrison Ford In 'Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom'

In an almost identical look to Sean's, Harrison Ford showed that white tux wearers are just as comfortable in luxury restaurants in Shanghai as they are jumping out of planes, riding an inflatable raft down a snowy mountain and plonking down into the rapids of a river in India.

Carlin, you might have a lot to live up to.

Daniel Craig in 'Spectre' 

A nod to Connery's spectacular '60s look, Daniel continued on the tradition, proving that a white dinner jacket, black bow-tie and red floral lapel addition will forever be a look.

Céline Dion At The 71st Academy Awards 

The year was 1999 and Céline Dion showed us all the power of a white tuxedo, by wearing her John Galliano jacket BACKWARDS with a jaunty hat and dark shades. We'd like to hope Carlin was really channelling Céline during his entrance and that he'll soon be crooning "Because You Loved Me" to Angie.
