2018 Oscars & Oscar Parties Menswear Roundup

Many of the men brought their A game to the 2018 Oscars and Oscars parties, including the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in California.

Chadwick Boseman: The ‘Black Panther’ star continued his reign of sartorial power in this Givenchy Haute Couture suit that was inspired by a full look in the Spring 2018 collection. However, I love how he made the long, embellished jacket his own—sleekly styling it with black shirting and trousers and the zipper-accented shoes.

Donald Glover: This Gucci tux such a handsome-luxe approach with the velvet jacket taking it to the next level in partnership with the relaxed-suave appeal of the slipper shoes. A David Yurman ring completed the look.

Tom Holland: Sometimes double-breasted jackets can come across as a bit contrived, but I love how Tom wore this Hermès suit so sharply. It was a standout on the Oscars red carpet with his Piaget watch adding that final touch.

Laurie Metcalf In Christian Siriano – 2018 Oscars

Laurie Metcalf walked the red carpet of the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

The nominee for the film ‘Lady Bird’ wore a custom Christian Siriano (a designer who was well represented tonight) gown in a subtle pink hue.

The boatneck bodice is really elegant on Laurie, as are the long sleeves. The slight train, impeccable sheen of the fabric and of course, perfect fit, make this a real home run. It’s just so effortless and subdued, and I really like that Laurie and her styling team kept it that way by not going crazy with jewelry.

The one really bold addition is her pearlized purple clutch, and it’s just the right amount of ‘pop’ to the sophisticated look.

Whoopi Goldberg In Christian Siriano – 2018 Oscars

Whoopi Goldberg also attended the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

The Hollywood legend and current talkshow host wore a custom Christian Siriano gown. I love the idea of these two working together, because when I think of Whoopi, I don’t automatically think of Christian Siriano.

Unfortunately, that’s about the end of what I love. This is what we can delicately call ‘a lot of look’, and it definitely fits with Whoopi’s M.O. of bucking every fashion convention. It is simply unflattering. The belt. The enormous flowers–I can’t get behind this, and I’m guessing most of you will agree.

Rita Hayek In Elie Saab – 2018 Oscars

Rita Hayek also attended the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

The Lebanese actress wore a Elie Saab Resort 2018 gown that definitely gave the virtually unknown (to American audiences) actress a moment in the spotlight.

I often think of watercolor as a very delicate medium, but using these bold, jewel-toned colors, the watercolor print on the fabric is strong and fierce. While I often turn up my nose to gown that reveal this much skin, this is done in such a refined way–it is classy, and I’m here for it! Oh, and there’s a cape!

Are you as excited by this look as I am?

Samara Weaving In Schiaparelli Couture – 2018 Oscars

Samara Weaving attended the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

The actress wore a breathtaking Schiaparelli Couture gown with Bvlgari jewels.

Talk about a bright spot! I don’t know where to begin with everything that is wonderful about this gown. The draping is stunning, and the color story is truly inspirational. At first glance, you only notice two different shades of coral, but there are also streaks of bubble gum pink, adding even more depth. And then of course, the belting. I love it when a ‘real life’ version of a gown is even better than we saw on the runway, and this bejeweled option really is perfection.

The equally colorful earrings, Samara’s relaxed updo and the copper-toned makeup are all superb.
