2015 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscar men

The men were out in force at the 2015 Oscars and the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where there was plenty of handsome inspiration to go around from a fine group of fellows.

Jared Leto: Getting the evening started on a non-traditional note, the actor and musician was every bit the unorthodox Academy Awards dresser in his baby-blue Givenchy tux, accented by a white bowtie and white lug sole shoes. He let his hair down literally and made no excuses for it, saying that the Oscars was his going-away party for his locks. I wonder if the beard was also included in that party. While no one could pull this off like Jared, between the mane and the male pastels, this was verging on almost too much too handle.

Chris Pine: A stark contrast to Jared, Chris went for the all-out traditionally classic route and suited up in a Giorgio Armani black double-breasted peak-lapel tuxedo. It was impeccable and goes to show what transformative power a well-tailored tux can have.

David Oyelowo: Looking as if he was inspired by the red carpet itself, the ‘Selma’ actor dressed to impress in a crimson Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo word with #TackleEbola handcrafted pin by Jason of Beverly Hills. He does a great job pulling off this colour, yet I’m not completely sold on the satiny look of the vest and bowtie underneath.

Ansel Elgort: ‘The Fault in our Stars’ cutie, who took his mom as his Oscars date, was nothing if not adorable in a Prada blue mohair, one-button tuxedo with a contrasting black silk shawl collar—even if he did look like he could have also been on his way to a well-dressed prom.

Bradley Cooper: The ‘American Sniper’ actor and nominee was suave in a black Salvatore Ferragamo three-piece suit, styled with a bowtie, Montblanc cufflinks, and an IWC timepiece. Even when he’s not wearing blue, his own baby blues are piercing.

Miles Teller
: The ‘Whiplash’ star wore a navy kid-mohair tuxedo with a black faille notch lapel, accessorized with Montblanc cufflinks and watch. I don’t know if his sleeve is pushed up to show off the timepiece, or if this ensemble was tailored a smidge too snugly around the arms.

Chiwetel Ejiofor: Also one of the men who wore navy, the actor’s Prada mohair shawl-collar, smoking tuxedo was classic if nothing special. That is wasn’t black added a nice depth to the traditional statement.

Common: One of the nominees of the night, Common wore a Prada navy velvet, peak-lapel dinner jacket with black smoking mohair trousers before taking to the stage to perform ‘Glory’ from the film, ‘Selma.’ The pants could have been better tailored, but I love that he wore white-on-white with his dress shirt and tie for an unexpected flair.

Chris Evans: The actor was polished in a midnight-blue Gucci ‘Marseille’ peak-lapel, one-button tuxedo that had him looking just as handsome as ever.

Oscar men 4

Neil Patrick Harris: Before commencing his Oscars hosting duties, Neil first walked the red carpet in a light heather-grey Brunello Cucinelli suit paired with a white dress shirt and grey bowtie. As the night’s host, I’m glad he opted for something besides the standard black or navy tux—plus, this look is in keeping with his more trendsetting style.

John Legend: Performing alongside Common, the singer first hit the red carpet in a Gucci Made to Order black, one-button ‘Marseille’ tuxedo with velvet shawl lapel. I love the extra richness and subtle luxe factor achieved through the velvet.

Channing Tatum: The actor cut a striking profile in a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo, although this is the point in which all the suits start looking the same. So I’m glad that he completed the look with the subtle addition of a white pocket square, as even the smallest details can make all the difference.

Oscar men 5

Jason Bateman: The funny-man actor wore a Dior Homme suit and regular tie, with his wife, Amanda Anka, in a Dior metallic peplum top and black cropped pants. I’m not sure either of them were in full-on Oscars form, as he could easily be on his way to a business meeting not the Academy Awards.

Ethan Hawke: The ‘Boyhood’ actor and nominee brought chocolate-brown to the party in his richly hued Prada tricotina shawl-collar tuxedo. While I wasn’t crazy about the cut of the jacket, I do like seeing this variation on the traditional black ensemble.

Idris Elba: Dressed in a midnight-blue Ermenegildo Zegna suit and traditional black tie, the actor made a dapper showing, even if the ensemble’s sheen factor wasn’t exactly camera-flash-friendly.

Oscar men 6

Armie Hammer: Arriving at the Vanity Fair Party with his lovely wife, Elizabeth Chambers, beside him, the actor dressed in a traditional, three-piece tuxedo by Thom Sweeney—and he wore it quite regally.

Orlando Bloom: Making a more casual entrance, the actor got us out of the dark blue and black mood with a lighter navy Dior Homme wool tuxedo with a slim peak contrast lapel. He skipped the tie with his white cotton shirt with blue banded collar, completing the look with a new hair cut. Given the less tailored, messier lines of the look, I’m not fully on board. But the colour and his undeniable cool attitude are working in his favour.

Oscar men 7

Robert Pattinson: Also wearing a brighter shade of blue like Orlando, the actor selected a Dior Homme wool tuxedo with contrast black satin, slim-peak lapels, paired with a white cotton shirt and black silk skinny tie. This look is formal—with a flair—so it keeps me from yawning. Although, his hair could have perhaps used a touch less styling gel.

Joshua Jackson
: Walking the red carpet alongside the lovely Diane Kruger at the Vanity Fair party, the actor was the perfect match to her red Donna Karan hybrid number, himself donning an immaculate black Dolce & Gabbana tux for which I can find no fault—suave and elegant are the words that come to mind.

    Rob Pattinson. The jacket seems a bit too tight, but he looks gorgeous nonetheless 😉

  2. Parvati February 25, 2015 at 8:01 pm #

    Chris Evans and Robert Pattinson are my favourites here. I also really like David Oyelowo’s suit!

  3. justme February 25, 2015 at 5:37 pm #

    Chris Pine and Chris Evans.

  4. Dawn February 25, 2015 at 4:36 pm #

    Eddie Redmayne deserved to be here. His navy tuxedo was great.

    Chris Pine and David.

    The classic looks were my favourite here, Chris Pine, Chris Evans, Arnie Hammer looked great beacuse of the fit, cut and how they stood.

  8. kane February 25, 2015 at 11:16 am #

    Chris P and Miles look delish!

  9. WhiteLady February 25, 2015 at 10:26 am #

    How come Eddie Redmayne is not on this list? He was one of the best-dressed for me! 🙁

    On another topic, are you sure that Chris Pine’s tuxedo is Giorgio Armani? I’d seen it credited as Fred Leighton on another site and would like to know for sure.

    Chris Pine was the standout for me.

    Points to Robert Pattinson simply because he was SO much better than Orlando in the same suit.

  11. Katarzyna February 25, 2015 at 7:05 am #

    I am missing here Adrien Brody – in his white tux he was my best dressed.

    Chris Pine stands out for the beautifully and elegantly executed double-breasted style (although not entirely perfect, I’d like to note that the shirt sleeves are too long and the scruff is getting a bit out of control). + well put-together Tatum and Evans (whose look is very simple but boy, that posture, assertive stance and handsomeness, he commands attention and manages to look both cool and classic).

    Leto looks joke-y – the fit of the pants, the shoes, the colour, the presentation – all off. And David went overboard with red – the matching vest and bow-tie are an overkill, plus the sleeves are a bit too long, the fit of the pants could’ve been more flattering and the shape of the bow-tie is not ideal. I appreciate that he is always trying to do something different but he needs to pay more attention to how it all fits, suits and flatters.

    Common, David, Joshua! Honorable Mention: Robert Pattinson!

    Were Orlando and Rob wearing exactly the same tuxedo?

  15. TL February 25, 2015 at 2:38 am #

    Top 3 favorites: David Oyelowo, Chris Evans and Idris Elba

    Dying to see FC’s awards!!! Okay no pressure but… Thank you in advance!

  17. Markness February 25, 2015 at 1:41 am #

    I adore David Oyelewo’s suit but not on him. I admire his risk taking abilities but he can’t sell it to me. I think it’s because he’s short or something. Give that suit to Matthew, Redmayne, Ansel, Denzel, Idris and I’d be swooning.

    Joshua, Orlando, Robert, and Common were my fave.

  18. Christine February 25, 2015 at 1:18 am #

    Jared, David Oyelewo, Common, Idris and Robert Pattinson all look good.

  19. Gemma Rockets February 25, 2015 at 12:34 am #

    I’m fond of David Oyelowo in his russet three-piece, it has a slight Edwardian feel to it that I like. Also love Robert Pattinsons look and idris Elba is his usual handsome self. Joshua Jackson looks very smart in his classic tux.

  20. Phoenix February 24, 2015 at 11:25 pm #

    Theres something about Miles look that is highly appealing. Could be just his pose/presence but damn, its nice…..Joshua is a wonderful second……most everyone looks good though.

  21. sophie February 24, 2015 at 10:53 pm #

    David is the best dressed man at the Oscars and Rob at the best dressed at VF

  22. Bailey February 24, 2015 at 10:52 pm #

    I think Miles Teller is my favourite but honorable mentions go to Ansel Elgort, Robert Pattinson, Joshua Jackson and Neil Patrick Harris for making a light grey suit look so adorable!

  23. Maria February 24, 2015 at 10:38 pm #

    My comments were not approved…Why?

  24. Marybeth February 24, 2015 at 10:36 pm #

    Chris Pine is my favorite. I also love Chiwetel Ejiofor’s impeccable, classic look, “boring” or not.

  25. Maria February 24, 2015 at 10:29 pm #

    My Top 3 are Chris Evans, Chris Pine and Channing Tatum.
    I like Jared Leto… this is his personal style and I think it really suits him

  26. Cristina February 24, 2015 at 10:10 pm #

    Chris Evans and Channing Tatum !! (heart eyes emoji)

  27. molly February 24, 2015 at 10:07 pm #

    Yikes, Jared is such an eyesore. In addition to it being too much, his pants are horribly tailored. They are way too short and the crotch is baggy; they make his legs look stubby. And he needs to do something with his hair, maybe some layers?
    I like the color on David, but I completely agree with you on the satin.
    Miles is my favorite out of this bunch.

  28. wer February 24, 2015 at 10:00 pm #

    Chris Pine, Neil Patrick Harris and Benedict Cumberbatch are my top 3.

  29. Chris February 24, 2015 at 9:58 pm #

    Most of these guys looked fantastic. Pattinson’ Dior is a perfect fit, as usual. Bloom’s Dior is messy, judging by the length of sleeves and trousers. The wardrobe this year was generally better than in previous years.

  30. EmmaWoodhouse February 24, 2015 at 9:43 pm #

    Chris Pine, Ansel, Chris Evans, and Common.

  31. Maria February 24, 2015 at 9:41 pm #

    I actually liked Jared Leto, although my faves are Chris Evans, Chris Pine and Channing Tatum

  32. Yeliz February 24, 2015 at 9:33 pm #

    Chris Evans, Chris Pine and Channing Tatum. Love all three classic black and white dapper looks.

  33. Christy February 24, 2015 at 9:10 pm #

    Top 5: David, Miles, Joshua, Chris, and Channing.
