Awards season reached its apogee Sunday evening at the 87th Oscars in Los Angeles.
The Ceremony, hosted by the great Neil Patrick Harris, was (as always) a huge success, and once again, a proof that gents are in the mist of outdoing their female counterparts on the red carpet.
With that many menswear trends at the same time and place, allow us to take them apart and reveal what this year’s most current faces chose to wear for the biggest event of the season– and perhaps give you some inspiration?
Here is our top 5!
In the world of fashion at least. Academy award nominee Michael Keaton opted for a classic white tuxedo shirt with Mother of Pearl studs, and a modern design with the versatile semi-cutaway collar, that can be worn with a bow tie/tie or unbuttoned for a casual week-end outfit.
J.K. Simmons won an Academy Award for best actor in a supporting role with the music drama Whiplash, and as he entered the stage, the actor’s message to the World was clear; “Call your mom!”. Nor was he afraid to make a statement in this wing collared shirt, detailed with black studs. To top off the look, Simmons chose to rock a hat and a pocket square.
Oscars 2015’s host Neil Patrick Harris amazed us with his 5 outfits of the night ( maybe not the tighty whities, although we give him a +1 for Audacity). However, what really caught our eyes was this classic white shirt with french cuffs and hidden placket that gives a sleek and simple look to the whole outfit.
Birdman’s Director Alejandro González Iñárritu was one of the most celebrated men of the night, as he won 4 Oscars, including Best Director. He chose a simple white shirt with thick mother of pearl buttons and semi-cutaway collar for his big night. The least we can say is that it was a lucky one!
+1 for his acceptance speeches and Oscar dedicated to the new generation of Mexican immigrants.
One of the boldest choices of the night was British actor David Oyelowo’s Dolce & Gabbana burdungy tuxedo. He assorted it with a white classic shirt with a matching red colored bow tie and vest (the devil is in the details!).
Although most of us could not go out with this tuxedo, he certainly rocked it, and for that he deserves an award! May we suggest a white shirt with burgundy buttons as a moderation?
