2019 Critics’ Choice Awards Menswear

The 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards were on Sunday (January 13) in Santa Monica, California, and the men showed up just as much as the women when it comes to the statement looks of the evening. There was hardly a standard suit in the mix here.

Timothée Chalamet: Your Best Dressed of last week kept his style-forward streak going strong in this painterly Alexander McQueen Resort 2019 suit. As always, he pulls off the directional look — complete with white sneakers — so seamlessly and nonchalantly.

John Legend: The singer-actor recently turned 40, but he looks as good as ever — especially with the rich, textural effect of this Ermenegildo Zegna XXX suit, styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Thomas III’ shoes.

Stephan James: The contrast piping on this slightly shrunken, slim-line Thom Browne suit gave it a an eye-catching edge. A Montblanc timepiece and David Yurman ring completed the look.

Rami Malek: The ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ actor took prom night and made it look all grown up in this heather-gray Givenchy Fall 2019 suit and black bow tie.

Edgar Ramirez: Edgar was singing the baby blues in this Prada suit, where the chocolate brown accents — tie and Christian Louboutin ‘Roadie’ boots — added a sophisticated finish.

Darren Criss: Clearly channeling some sort of suave style king, ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ Best Actor winner would not be missed in his custom Emporio Armani neutrals. The relaxed-lush styling is what really drove home the attitude of the look, though, with Oliver Peoples retro glasses and Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo Orlato’ navy glitter shoes — worn sans socks, naturally.

Lakeith Stanfield: Visually arresting, this patterned Dzojchen ensemble styled with burgundy velvet loafers, and SALT. ‘Mitch’ glasses was a sharp entrance. But, it was the purple baseball cap that should have gotten a citation — it’s what made the look kinda silly.

Finn Wittrock: As with John Legend’s suit, Finn’s Ermenegildo Zegna XXX version had the same textural effect to create plenty of visual interest despite the monochromatic black palette.

Harry Shum Jr.
: Offering a bit of glam shine to his formal tux, Harry suited up in a Roberto Cavalli number styled with a Montblanc timepiece.

Taye Diggs: I wanted to like Taye’s Richard James tux, but it really did him no favors. He’s not short, by any means, but the scrunched, semi-sloppy tailoring did nothing to celebrate his strong stance.

Milo Ventimiglia: The ‘This Is Us’ favorite was as polished as ever in a crisp Armani tux worn with Montblanc cufflinks and Tod’s shoes.

Richard Madden
: This might look black to you. But, the velveteen Armani design was actually midnight blue — which obviously made Richard’s blue eyes even more piercing.

Ben Whishaw: The singular embroidered flower on this Best Supporting Actor winner’s tie made a big statement for Alexander McQueen black suit.

Justin Hartley: Another ‘This Is Us’ heartthrob, the actor combined sporty and sleek in his all-black suit, sneakers, and Montblanc cufflinks — and I was totally on board.

Mahershala Ali: The Best Supporting Actor winner for ‘Green Book’ Berluti cut a cool profile in this artsy suit that almost looks like a very elegant, understated version of tie-dye.

    Timothée picked the suit himself and it’s more exciting than any from Ilaria Urbinati & her ilk.

    It’s really not that hard men.

    Men have been stepping up their games these past years. Love it
    Edgar, Harry Shum, Finn look amazing
    Mahershala printed suit is the real deal but it’s too tigh for my liking.

    I’m so glad no one was asking to hear me scream, “WERRRRRRK!” at Mr. Ali. Next level!

    Not particularly excited about anyone (not really loving the Thom Browne aesthetics on Stephan (it would’ve worked a bit better on someone like Timothee), or Timothee’s sneakers (I think his stylist needs to cut it down a bit, he’s been choosing white sneakers with his suits way too often), also the fit of the suit on him could’ve been a bit better, and no need for the necklace, it looks superfluous), John did nicely, although a tad one-note), but the top row wins here, plus some nice classic looks from Harry and Finn.

    Lakeith and Darren are rocking the outfits but the hat and glasses, whilst i understand add something interesting to the outfits, could’ve been better.
    Timothee’s outfit is neat but i don’t love the suit and sneakers combo.
    Out of everyone they are still my favourites.

    Wow such a beautiful dress

  7. Chris January 15, 2019 at 4:27 pm #

    Timothee looks amazing!! Such a cool suit, love that he is still keeping things interesting.

    Timothee Chalamet is one fashion rule-breaker that’s not afraid to step outside his comfort zone, and the risk always pays off for him spectacularly!! Richard Madden and Milo Venitmiglia tie for the 2nd place, the handsome hunky duo makes me swoon all the time indeed!! PURE PERFECTION no doubt!!

  9. Caroline January 15, 2019 at 1:03 pm #

    Timothee’s best look.

  10. Jessica January 15, 2019 at 11:23 am #

    LOVING Richard Maddens velvet suit.

    No Billy Porter? If nothing else he has been making very eye-catching choices lately.

  11. TeaAtTwo January 15, 2019 at 10:03 am #

    John, Mahershala (maybe favourite), Timothee, Finn, Harry are my picks. Lakeith would be up there if it hadn’t been for silly hat.

    Stephan’s suit looks too small for him. This is the first time I’m disappointed in him.
    Rami should return Bradly Cooper’s suit back to him. This look doesn’t work for him at all.
    Darren looks so cool and relaxed, I love it.
    My favorite is Richard Madden.

      Re: Stephan. It’s Thom Browne’s “shrunken” aesthetic. But I agree that it doesn’t translate on Stephan (as JHH also pointed out below), leave it for someone like Timothee.

  13. Iva January 15, 2019 at 8:47 am #

    Mahershala is the best imo.

    Timothee is just too much for my taste.

  14. Camilla January 15, 2019 at 7:40 am #

    Mahershala! I love that suit and that he styled it with a bow tie.

    Timothee chalamet is everything. He dresses so fine. So young and fresh. It’s the beginning of the year and he has already given us two different BDOTY looks.
    Excited to see what he will wear to the Baftas and sag awards.

  16. JHH January 15, 2019 at 3:35 am #

    Sometimes shrunken looks work and sometimes it looks like the wearer outgrew his clothes. The latter is Stephan’s look. Lakeith is my favorite her but I am pretending the hat is not there (and backwards even — how try hard to be cool is that). Also looking very good are John, Mahershala and Justin.

  17. Vizual Ninja January 15, 2019 at 3:17 am #

    John, Finn and Mahershala for the win. I like Lakeith too sans hat.

    Timothees GG harness look I despised with a passion but this one is so hot! Its interesting and for some reason very 80’s Don Johnson reminder for me. idk. its working.

    John Legend has an intriguing suit on, even if it is brown.
    Stephan looks too waiter-like.

    Mahershala has my next fave on. Its so cool looking! I love it.

    The rest hmmm.
