Oscar Fashions – Male Edition

Tuesday, 24 February 2015 | Tags: , , , , , ,

We've heard about the dresses (Jennifer Aniston rocks it again), John Travolta obsessions with Idina's Menzel's face and Neil Patrick Harris tepid performance as host at this year's Oscars. But one thing we haven't dissected nearly enough is what the GUYS were wearing!

In a sea of black tuxes, a few standouts for me. Not all of them necessarily good.

John Travolta and Liam Neeson, below, wore black on black on black, meaning black tux, black shirt and black tie. Don’t love.   Maybe his white shirt was Taken?

I applaud David Oyelowo for daring to be different in this fiery number from Dolce and Gabbana. While I liked the tux itself I would have liked it better without the somewhat clashing cumberbatch.

This guy. Funny, fashionable and handsome.  I know he’s wearing a basic tux but I have a big crush on him so I wanted to throw him in here.  Chris, I’d totally fight intergalactic aliens with you!

Jesus Jared, what big feet you have! I have a soft spot for Jared because we share the same birthday (Go Capricorns!) Not everyone can pull off a power blue suit. Actually, no one can pull off a powder blue suit.

From one of the year’s most colourful films, Adrian Brody looked dashing in black and white.  Though there’s something about a white jacket that makes me feel like ordering dinner.

Loved Common’s velvet Prada jacket and the way the white bow tie disappears into his shirt.  Now that’s one tall cool drink of water.

Eddie Redmayne looked sharp in a dark blue tux (hard to tell here) but I chose this image because it’s a good shot of his velvet smoking shoes. My theory is that adorable goes with everything.

Who’d I miss?

PS. All lame puns totally intended.

    Sorry but Jared Leto just looks plain awful. The hair, the hair!

    Tee hee. For David Oyelowo, you mean cummerbund (the waist sash), not cumberbatch (the actor, as in Benedict Cumberbatch).

      Nope, I meant what I wrote. Happy to see that someone caught my little joke! 🙂

        LOL! I was wondering if it was intentional!
