THE AWARD GOES TO. The Oscars are considered the pinnacle of award season, gathering the best of the movie industry. We run down our pick of the best dressed men of the evening
Who made it on to DA MAN’s list this year?
For many movie fans the start of every year is also known as award season. A time where the best-of-the-best in the movie industry gather to be awarded for their accolades. The pinnacle of award season is often noted by the Academy Awards or also known as the Oscars. This year, for the 90th annual event, we once again look at the many stylish actors that graced the red carpet, not only with their good looks but also their sense of style.
Timothée Chalamet in Berluti
As one of the youngest nominees to ever be nominated an Oscar, Timothée Chalamet is one to look out for in the future and his sense of fashion is also quite impeccable too. Donning an all whit suite by Berluti that he paired nicely with a pair of square-off Chelsea boots. No wonder “Call Me by Your Name” screenwriter James Ivory was willing to wear a shirt with the actors image on it.
Chadwick Boseman in Givenchy Haute Couture
Its seems that Chadwick Boseman was still feeding off the energy of his previous role in the recently released “Black Panther” movie coming to the Oscar’s dressed like a Wakanda king. Sporting a Givenchy Haute Couture fit jacket with silver embroidery on the shoulders, added to that some killer boots with a silver zipper at the front. It just goes to show that you don’t always have to come in a tux to be Oscar ready.
Tom Holland in Hermès
It seems that many young actors chose the 90th Oscar’s red carpet to show-off their fashionable side, as can be seen by young actor Tom Holland who came looking extremely dapper in this double breasted suit by Hermès. A total departure from his most recent role as Spider-man.
Armie Hammer in Giorgio Armani
The typical black and white tux is often the go-to outfit for award shows, which often limits an actor’s level of style. As for “Call Me by Your Name” actor Armie Hammer, taking risks is all a part of playing the red carpet game. Wearing a custom red velvet tux by Giorgio Armani not only marked a departure from the traditional tux, but also made him more visible to the many photographers. That and the red brought out the blue of his eyes.
Daniel Kaluuya in Brunello Cucinelli
A contrasting colored suit is also a good way to break away from the monotonous black and white tux as “Get Out” actor Daniel Kaluuya showed. His caramel colored Brunello Cucinelli contrast-collar tux jacket was a refreshing take on the traditional tux. The complete look was completed with accessories from Mont Blanc and Tod’s shoes.
Velvet suits seemed to be the go to outfit this Oscar season as many actors took to the red carpet in some sort of velvet jacket or tux. One such personality was “Baby Driver” actor Ansel Elgort who is a regular on DA MAN’s best dressed lists, sporting a bottle green tuxedo jacket fashioned out of velvet and satin by Tom Ford.
Jordan Peele in Calvin Klein 205W39NYC
It’s an amazing achievement for comedian Jordan Peele whose directorial debut instantly got him an Oscar nomination. Of course, the funny man had to dress up for the occasion, and he did so wearing a crisp white Calvin Klein jacket and poplin shirt with a black satin bow tie and tux pants. He may not have gone away with the best director award, but he did walk away with an award for best original screenplay.
It’s not often that we feature not actors on our list, but we just had to feature stylish Olympic skater, Adam Rippon who turned up on the red carpet in an avant-garde suit by Jeremy Scott for Moschino. If you’re looking for totally new take on a tuxedo, well this is it, featuring cropped black tux jacket with cutaway shoulders, matching trousers and a studded leather chest harness. Nothing says I’m here than an elegant suit with a touch of BDSM now does it.
