While the Oscars is deemed as a much more subdued, and some might say dull, sibling to champagne-filled Golden Globes, these gentlemen know a well-styled outfit can turn the ambience up a notch
Here are 5 styling lessons from our favorite looks from the 2016 Oscars.
1. Think Like a Winner
Leonardo DiCaprio finally won Best Actor this year. Everyone and their grandmother knew it. DiCaprio definitely knew it. To celebrate the special occasion, he came in a made-to-measure suit from Giorgio Armani, which fits him nicely. Couple that with peak lapels and a knowing smile, and you get yourself a winning suit.
2. Velvet Goldmine
Eddie Redmayne, who attended the Oscars with his wife Hannah Bagshawe, always has interesting choices when it comes to the suits he wears to red carpet events. This time, he settled for a black suit from Alexander McQueen. But instead of playing safe, Redmayne added a velvet jacket to amp up his classic suit. So did Henry Cavill, who was dressed in Dunhill London‘s bespoke black velvet cocktail jacket and black velvet bow tie.
3. Go Green
In a sea of black and blue tuxedos, songwriter Jimmy Napes, who won the Oscar for Best Original Song for “Writing’s on the Wall” with Sam Smith, appeared in a velvet emerald green jacket. It proves that choosing an out-of-the-box color is a fashion risk worth taking.
4. (White) bow ties are cool
Is there anything Ryan Gosling can’t do? At the 2016 Oscars, Gucci-wearing Gosling convinces us that a white bow tie, worn with a white evening shirt, looks mighty superb.
5. Have Some Good Fun
Jared Leto seems like a guy who always knows how to have fun. At the 2016 Oscars, he showed it by taking Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele as his date and wearing a suit courtesy of the brand. Notice his flowery “bow tie.” And his snake loafers. It shows that having some fun is a good way to separate yourself from the others!
