“She’s so gorgeous!” “She’s too thin!” “I love her hair! “Is she pregnant?” “What was her stylist thinking?” Yes, most of our commentary about Oscar fashion revolves around the women in attendance. The lovely ladies of Hollywood always steal the show on the red carpet, but we want to give the men a chance to shine. While some guys just slap on a penguin suit and call it a day, a few put a little extra thought into their attire, and for that, we applaud them.
Keeping the swag level high, P.Diddy told us he went for a custom-made suit from London. Interior designer/talk-show host Nate Berkus has impeccable taste that clearly translates to his sense of fashion. And Nate was kind enough to let us in on the reasoning behind his fashion splurge: “When you’re 5-8″, you don’t go for a tuxedo from a store ’cause then you look 5’8″ … Don’t I look 5’9″?” Pharrell Williams served as the night’s musical director, so he knew his sartorial choice would be on the screen a whole lot. He was looking fresh to death in a Lanvin tuxedo, complete with waistcoat. “I’m clean baby! This what it’s all about right here!”
From the Oscar veterans like the velvet-loving Christopher Plummer to the newcomers like Jonah Hill, there were plenty of other men rocking a suit like a GQ photo shoot. Check out our gallery below and tell us who your faves were.
