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.

Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of memorable looks at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California.

Karolina Kurkova: Look closely at the Czech model’s Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 suit as the fabric has a marvelous texture that’s flecked with sparkles on the collar. It might not have been the loudest look, but it was unique and nice to see another pants option.

Darby Stanchfield: The ‘Scandal’ actress celebrated floral and fauna with her Teresa Helbig gown. Unfortunately, there were too many opposing elements between the print, sequins, sharp neckline and the sparkling bag. I can see some saying it’s a lesser version of Gucci.

Petra Nemcova: The philanthropist and model struck a pose in a sunny Celia Kritharioti gown. It was a well-executed look with her waves echoing the ruffled shoulder detail. The red lipstick and high slit added allure to the cheerful fabric.

Angela Sarafyan In Celia Kritharioti – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Angela Sarafyan struck a pose at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California, joining Sofia CarsonLea Michele and Karen Gillan.

Sequined gowns are to be expected during awards season, but the ‘Westworld’ actress’s Celia Kritharioti dress made me sit up and take notice.

The vivid tangerine shade was a unique colour choice, but it photographed splendidly, enlivening her complexion and playing off the berry earrings.

I’m of two minds in regards to the fabric bow. As a full look, the detail draws attention to her face and wraps up the look nicely. On the other hand, I am curious to see it in a lighter fabric.

Thoughts?

Sofia Carson In Monique Lhuillier – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

After a glamorous turn at the 2018 Oscars, Sofia Carson stepped out at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California, alongside Miley Cyrus, Lea Michele and Karen Gillan.

Many approved of her rich red look at the awards ceremony and I expect there will be a number of fans of this Monique Lhuillier Spring 2018 gown.

It had sweeping drama from the long train, but it still had a soft femininity from the dusty pink brocade print.

This is a romantic princess moment without the typical tulle skirt and heavy embellishment.

Jaime King In Oscar de la Renta – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Jaime King graced the red carpet at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California, joining Miley Cyrus, Karen Gillan and Lea Michele.

With frothy layers of white tulle and a smattering of cascading gold embellishment, she oozed ethereal prettiness in an Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2018 gown.

The whimsical mood was kicked up a notch with her floral jewellery.

Even with the ornate metallic bodice, there is a carefree nature to the style I find most appealing.

Miley Cyrus In Moschino – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Miley Cyrus is a bit of a wildcard so I am always intrigued to see what she will wear.

She was on hand at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, where she joined Heidi Klum and Lea Michele.

She celebrated unabashed feminine glamour in a Moschino by Jeremy Scott Fall 2018 gown.

The dazzling style merged a shocking pink dress that was reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe’s ‘Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend’ dress from ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ with shimmering silver fabric.

Some might say the zigzag cut-out is disjointed or even costumey but it has a joyful tongue-in-cheek finish that’s emblematic of the designer. And Miley appears to be having a ball in the ensemble.

Lea Michele In La Perla – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Lea Michele sizzled at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California, joining Heidi Klum.

‘The Mayor’ actress wasn’t concerned about showing chest and legs in a slinky La Perla Pre-Fall 2018 gown.

There was plenty of skin, but it was the textured gold fabric that caught my attention. The textile looked like gilded feathers thanks to the placement of each square paillette.

The minimal accessories allowed the shimmering panel to come to the forefront with the cuff playing off the splendor of the dress.
