Many of the fellows at the 2018 SAG Awards weren’t content to just wear the standard black tux, making for quite the scene-stealing list of looks on Sunday (January 21) in LA.
Noah Schnapp: The young ‘Stranger Things’ star continued to win my affection with a lesson in all that is dapper in his custom-made velvet tuxedo by Stella McCartney paired with Jésù-SégunLondon slipper-style shoes, a Brackish bowtie, and Mrs Bow Tie pocket square. What a charmer.
Sterling K. Brown: The ‘This Is Us’ star won the best actor award, and his look was equally stellar in this Giorgio Armani tuxedo styled with a Chopard timepiece and cufflinks. This was a lesson in the appeal of classic style with a modern twist thanks to the shades and the slim-line, slightly cropped proportions.
Dacre Montgomery: I liked this Giorgio Armani ensemble for its unorthodox twist on the traditional tux in the chocolate-brown hue and exaggerated shawl label. Wearing his dress shirt unbuttoned at the top added a rebellious flavour that actually echoed his ‘Stranger Things’ character quite well. Montblanc cufflinks completed the look.
Lucas Hedges: The white rose applique on this Dior Homme monochromatic black ensemble added a layer of unexpected intrigue and impact; I’m a fan.
Dave Franco: The actor cut a sharp profile in this midnight-blue Paul Smith tuxedo with contrast black lapels. Sleek and handsome.
Timothée Chalamet: Timothée has a signature look with his long and lean proportions and this CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC suit and shoes perfectly celebrated it. I like the addition of the red racing stripe at the side for a bit of sporty edge.
Marcus Scribner: Speaking of twists on the classic tux, this Lena Kasparian suit delivered another eye-catching version with the white paneling through the lapel area. The Cadogan shirt echoed the white accent with a DHAOne bow tie to finish it out.
Lonnie Chavis: Well, I just loved seeing Lonnie in this decorative Dolce & Gabbana dinner jacket and those buckled brogues. It was just such an adorably suave look for the young actor.
Caleb McLaughlin: Speaking of looks to love, can we just take a moment for this Antonio Marras Spring 2018 ensemble. This outfit cements my style crush on Caleb, as he is having such fun with fashion in this white dinner jacket paired with the directional spirit of those skinny plaid pants. Jimmy Choo ‘Tim’ loafers—without socks—along with a Le Vian diamond ring and Borgioni diamond bangle further upped his fashion game here.
Justin Hartley: Some may nitpick the slightly bunched trousers, but I was all for the monochromatic impact of this Saint Laurent tux, which was especially sleek from the jacket up.
Alexander Skarsgard: Traditional in the best sense of the word, Alexander made sure this deep-navy Hugo Boss tux worked in tandem with steely, blue-eyed stare. Tod’s shoes rounded out the ‘Big Little Lies’ star and best actor winner.
Daniel Kaluuya: The ‘Get Out’ actor and nominee has recently gravitated to embossed detailing, and that trend remained in this Ermenegildo Zegna Couture suit that I feel was probably better in person.
Joe Keery: The ‘Stanger Things’ actor wore the slim silhouette of this Saint Laurent tuxedo so well.
O-T Fagbenle: Opting for the velvet trend, O-T offered up a plum variation in this Strong Suit paisley tuxedo styled with a Montblanc timepiece and Giuseppe Zanotti slipper loafers for a fancy flourish.
Gaten Matarazzo: Gaten kept it classic in a Kenneth Cole tuxedo.
Milo Ventimiglia: I wanted to like the ‘This Is Us’ actor’s Brunello Cucinelli three-piece charcoal flannel tuxedo, but the fit seemed a bit off, leading to a rumpled, costume-y effect. He accessorised with Montblanc cufflnks
Joseph Fiennes: The luxe appeal of a midnight-blue velveteen jacket elevated this Brioni ensemble, with a Montblanc timepiece for added flair.
Matt Smith: As per, Matt kept his tailoring easy and straightforward in this Burberry tux.
