CELEBS GO ALL-BLACK. Like every year, award season always kicks-off with the Golden Globes. We bring to you DA MAN’s pick for the best dressed men on the red carpet this year
The Golden Globe trophies
Awards season has returned and like every year before it, The Golden Globes kicks things off, giving us a glimpse of the best of what Hollywood has to offer. Besides the awards, what the celebrities wore on the red carpet has also become an attraction itself for many viewers. This year, all who took part on the red carpet came dressed in black, with the purpose to send a powerful message. A unified message that “Time’s Up” for sexual misconduct and abuse, something that had lead Tinsletown’s headlines last year.
For men, black is often the only color option for them to don when attending a major award show in a tux. But this year many chose to go black-on-black, or donning a black suit, black shirt and black tie. A look that may look kind of dull from afar, but some were able to add a subtle touch of color to their look, while others just relied or their good looks. Here is our pick for some of the best dressed gentlemen to grace the 2018 Golden Globes red carpet.
Pulling off a black paisley suit is not an easy feat for many men, but when you have the looks of Chris Hemsworth, this is a fitting style. His clean yet rugged look choosing to go without a tie gives the whole look a stylish yet free look. His choice to come in the suit by Etro was one of the best styles of the evening.
Choosing to add a touch of dazzle to his black suit was Dave Franco, whose black suit by Saint Laurent was adorned with sequined lapels, literally setting him apart from the sea of black on the red carpet.
Sebastian Stan in Hugo Boss
If you can’t make a statement with your color choice, you can always do so with the texture of the material the suit you wear. One example of this was Sebastian Stan who wore a velvet tux with silk lapels by Hugo Boss.
Sterling K. Brown
Another take on the textured suit option was showcased by Golden Globe winner Sterling K. Brown, who nabbed the Best Actor in a Drama TV Series award tonight for his role in “This Is Us” wearing a velvet Isaia tuxedo.
Ricky Martin in Dior Homme
Latin musician and now star of “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” Ricky martin stayed true to the black-on-black suit look in this stunning number by Dior Homme, but added a subtle touch of color in the way of a deep green ring.
Armie Hammer in Berluti
Like the black paisley suit worn by Hemsworth, pulling off a textured suit like what Armie Hammer of “Call Me by Your Name” did on the red carpet is not an easy one to pull off. But the real-life comic book character was able to do so in this Armani suit with a “Time’s Up” pin on one lapel and a black silk flower on the other. Here he is looking elegant alongside co-star Timothee Chalamet who went black-on-black in this Berluti tuxedo.
Edgar Ramirez in Botegga Veneta
It seems the “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” wasn’t keeping to his role as he came in a black-on-black ensemble by Bottega Veneta. Despite that fact, the actor still looked dapper on the red carpet.
Another black-on-black adorning celebrity who had many women swooning was Zac Efron who came look debonair in this number by Hugo Boss. The dark tone of his outfit seemed to make his blue eyes seem to pop more than ever.
The “Baby Driver” star was a main staple at many best dressed lists last year, and this year he doesn’t fail to deliver, donning a black-on-black suit by Prada and iconic Elgort smile.
Laurence Fishburne in a Chinese inspired suit
Doing away with the typical tie and suit look, but keeping with the black-colored theme of the evening was Laurence Fishburne who came in a black silk Chinese Long-gown, hitched up to the waist to reveal a deep red lining and a pair of red shoes. Very different, but eye-catching non-the-less.
