The girls have been feted for their fashionable entrances and exits at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. But there were plenty of handsome guys on the red carpet, too. That said, most of the men played it safe, taking a rather traditional approach with tuxes, all tied up with a bow (tie).
Ben Affleck: Ben was definitely the evening’s Golden boy, as he snagged the Best Director and Best Picture win for ‘Argo’—and he dressed for his double victory. His midnight blue peak lapel tuxedo from Gucci was a handsome three-piece affair, especially with the matching satin bow tie. The blue spin on the traditional tux won me over. Even his perfectly groomed facial hair wasn’t bothersome; it only added a sense of refined depth to the look.
Bradley Cooper: The Best Actor nominee for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ went green for the red carpet with his well-tailored, black Tom Ford two-piece tux, a part of the sustainable Green Carpet Challenge. A pert bow tie topped off the dapper look.
Robert Pattinson: This ‘Twilight’ heartthrob is all grown up. The British actor impressed with his slim Gucci black peak lapel ‘Signoria’ tuxedo with white dress shirt and black satin tie, matched to black leather lace-ups. It was the picture of formality, and Robert even exchanged his standard scruffiness for a clean-shaven look for the occasion.
Denzel Washington: The Best Actor nominee wore a black Armani two-button notch lapel tuxedo with a classic white evening shirt and a black neck tie. His look was fair, although the fit of his loose jacket and baggy pant could have been better.
Keith Urban: Keith managed to hold his own up against his red-carpet date, the statuesque Nicole Kidman. To do so, he went for classic sophistication in his Prada black lana mohair tuxedo with narrow peak lapel paired with a white smoking popeline shirt, black satin bow tie and black lace-up shoes.
Damian Lewis: The British boy and Best Actor winner for ‘Homeland’ channeled the spirit of Savile Row tailoring with his slimline, head-to-toe Burberry moment. The black satin tuxedo with notch lapel, white dress shirt and, yes, another black satin bow tie, paired with the flash of black patent leather dress shoes, were completely classic.
John Krasinski: The actor was handsome, if overshadowed, alongside wife Emily Blunt. His charcoal grey lana seta Prada two-button tuxedo with a black satin peak lapel was worn with a white smoking piquet shirt, black satin bow tie and black lace-up shoes.
Ryan Seacreast: The red-carpet regular had one of the more interesting ensembles of the night. He took Burberry for a spin, and the grey satin three-piece notch lapel tuxedo matched to a white dress shirt, black velvet tie and black patent leather shoes, all from the designer, made him a cool co-host (and more splashily dressed than some of the guys he interviewed).
