Sunday at the Cannes Film Festival in France included the premiere of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’, which features Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Garrett Hedlund, and the premiere of ‘Blood Ties’, starring Clive Owen and Marion Cotillard.
Garrett Hedlund: Not going with the traditional black tuxedo, Garrett opted for a Saint Laurent midnight-navy tux with black peak lapels. Keeping the color scheme dark, he paired it with a black shirt and a black tie. Garrett looks great, but unfortunately he is standing next to a major menswear mogul in Justin Timberlake.
Justin Timberlake: In the past few months we’ve seen Justin wear tuxedos with perfection. He kept the streak alive, pulling out all of the stops in a beautifully tailored Balenciaga black tuxedo with peak lapels. He kept the look classic as always, with a crisp white shirt, and a black bow tie and cummerbund. To finish it off, he added a Cartier watch, a Lanvin lapel pin, and vintage mother-of-pearl cufflinks.
Oscar Isaac: The star of the film went with a classic black tux, but a few key differences made it stand on its own next to Justin’s similar look. Oscar decided to wear a necktie instead of a bow tie and nixed the cummerbund. Simplicity always works with a tux, so Oscar did well.
Clive Owen: Also sticking with the classics, Clive sported an elegant look in a black tuxedo alongside co-star Marion Cotillard. He finished off the two-button peak-lapel tux with a black bow tie and a white shirt.
It’s a little difficult to choose a favourite out of these four. For me, it was between Garrett and Justin because of the midnight-navy colour and the overall perfection, respectively. I’ll have to give the nod to Justin because of the hair. Grooming counts too.
