The Academy Awards, best known as the Oscars, is one of the most influential awards ceremony in our time. In 2017, it may be known as the biggest mess-up of all time, but tracing back to 1930, this ceremony is the oldest worldwide entertainment awards ceremony. Such a glamorous event, the finest of Motion Picture celebrities dress in the best name-brands and walk the red-carpet. This is a night that not only are their acting, directing, and behind the scenes skills put to the test but as are their fashion choices.
With critics such as Fashion Police, there is no such thing as getting through the Red Carpet without being noticed. Female celebrities in their outrageous gowns seem to have the biggest bullseye – they have so many choices in their dress choices. Whereas men have a much less broad selection. Suit or Tux? Black or Blue? Should I go Velvet and really make the critics talk? Let’s take a look at the best Men’s wear looks for The Oscar’s and see who stepped out of the box and mixed up the best looks this year!
We have to start with that marvelous opening number that had us all dancing on our couches! Justin Timberlake not only rocked that opening, but he also came in with the perfect wardrobe choice for someone opening the iconic event. The “Can’t Stop the Feeling” singer had us all in awe over his classic black and white tuxedo choice. Look how sharp he looks with that bow tie!
The Hidden Figures actor totally killed the accessory game! Aldis Hodge proved just how far your choice in accessories can really go. He already looked very dapper in the perfectly fitting navy tux, but the chain hanging from the lapel is what sold us in making the best dressed list! Never underestimate the importance of adding an accessory to the mix – one simple touch can change an entire look.
Michael Strahan & Dwayne Johnson
This time we’re gonna mix things up by putting two celebs in the same category. It’s hard not to when both Michael Strahan and Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson tried out a velvet blue dinner jacket with tuxedo trousers in the same night! I mean, what look can’t The Rock totally…. rock? Both men looked phenomenal with the piping detail within their dinner jackets. And we really have to say, both men completed this look with an incredible pair of dress shoes.
Please remember this, gents – in the formal world, jewelry are a woman’s best friend but for men, dress shoes can make the look!
One of our favorite looks this season was worn by none other than the big winner himself, Mahershala Ali. TheMoonlight star looked incredibly sharp in a phenomenally tailored black on black suit. By adding a black bow tie into the mix, the Oscar winner threw those “suit etiquette” rights and wrongs to sleep by sticking to the one color old fashion feel and taking over the night.
We have to say, nothing is more exciting than dissecting men’s wear from the Red Carpet – while we can’t argue with how glamorous these rock star female stars look, we can’t forget about those suits and tuxedos that shine throughout the night.
