Not to be left out, a group of handsome guys also took to the red carpet at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Saturday (February 22).
Michael B. Jordan: Consistently a style stud, the ‘Fruitvale Station’ actor and nominee kept up his winning fashion streak in an all-black look, donning a Dior Homme single-button, peak-lapel tuxedo with a cotton, button-down shirt and silk bow tie. He finished the look with his go-to Piaget timepiece and Christian Louboutin ‘New Platers’ flats. Even though there’s just one shade at play here, this sleek entrance is far from dull.
Tony Goldwyn: The ‘Scandal’ actor, who presented co-star Kerry Washington with her Outstanding Actress award, stayed in traditional sartorial territory with his slightly shiny black suit, white button-down and black tie.
Idris Elba: Looking as sharp as ever, the ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ actor and nominee paired his well-fitted black tux and bow tie with Christian Louboutin ‘Dada’ flats and a great pair of glasses.
Tyrese Gibson: One of the evening’s presenters, the ‘Fast and Furious’ actor jumped on the navy trend with his blue Sand Copenhagen tuxedo blazer, which he wore with black pants, a white shirt and black tie.
Scott Foley: The actor looked in need of a tailor—or just a different tux—with this black suit and tie combo. Buttoning the top button of the boxy jacket only added insult to injury.
Columbus Short: The ‘Scandal’ actor suited up in a dark navy John Varvatos tux, white button-down shirt and contrasting black tie. A shiny watch, funky statement frames and black patent-leather loafers completed his handsome-cool style.
David Oyelowo: The actor, who was honoured for his role in ‘The Butler,’ eschewed the black and navy trends, instead opting for a light blue-grey Ted Baker London suit paired with a printed shirt, dark tie and polka-dot pocket square. His plus-one was wife, Jessica Oyelowo, in an embellished sapphire gown.
Terrence Howard: Accompanied by wife Miranda Howard in a hot-red draped, fishtail gown, Terrence did his best to stand out in a midnight-blue, shawl-lapel blazer, navy tie and black pants. However, something about his look just wasn’t working for me—from the satiny sheen of the jacket to its expanded button closure and the harsh contrast between the blue and black colours.
