OSCAR NIGHT STYLE: BEST & WORST
The morning after the Academy Awards is traditionally when all the style blogs come out and give their best and worst lists. Even though you’ve probably seen this list about a thousand times already before breakfast, we can’t help it, we love style here! Here’s our take on the men (and woman) of the night:
Daniel Day-Lewis: In a sea of black, Best Actor winner Daniel Day-Lewis stood out with a perfectly tailored, navy Domenico Vacca number. One of the best dressed of the night, Mr. Lincoln hit all the right notes with a slim shawl collar, impeccably hemmed pants (no break!), and a well-placed pocket square. Not to mention also one-upping the host with a couple of classy (-er) Meryl Streep-related zingers that didn’t involve boobs or George Clooney’s taste in women.
Seth Macfarlane: Say what you want about his hosting, as we’ve heard people from both camps of loving vs. hating, but our host of the night did a hell of a job cleaning up for the show. He isn’t really a built man, so going with a black Gucci tux with slimmer proportions was a wise decision. Taking a page from Jimmy Kimmel’s gig hosting the Emmy’s last year, what really set his outfit apart was those roped shoulders, which give the softer-shouldered man a better, V-shaped silhouette.
Eddie Redmayne: Red carpet style hero Eddie Redmayne strikes again with an Alexander McQueen tux that pulls out all the stops. Traditional peak lapels, a well-proportioned bow tie, pants hemmed with no break (as you can see, we’re a fan of the no-break look), and suede (!) loafers (!!). Ballsy enough to stand out, low-key enough to keep the spotlight on his girlfriend. Where the hell did this guy even come from?
Jennifer Lawrence: And our etiquette and charm award goes to…a woman? She has so many qualities that most men wish they had. Only Miss Lawrence has the superpower of maintaining grace and composure after eating pavement on the way up to the podium, and her self-deprecating humor and gracious acceptance speech only makes our collective crush on her bigger. Birthday shoutout to her competition, 86 year old Emmanuelle Riva? Awesome. Fighting off a pervy Jack Nicholson after the show? Riveting. What a classy lady.
Quentin Tarantino: We all love Django Unchained here, but apparently for my man Quentin, the party started at the Golden Globes last month and never stopped. With his undone collar flying out of his jacket and loose hanging tie, he looked like a complete mess. Not really a surprise though: you can always count on Jimmie Dimmick to show up looking like he came from a barrel fire, and to bring a date to the Oscars named Liane Spiderbaby (no, really, that’s her name).
Sound Award Winners: Apparently, there’s a prerequisite for winning Academy Awards for sound: you had to have worked for Hans Gruber and have John McClane steal your machine gun. C’mon guys, it’s the Oscars, not Bonnaroo. Get a haircut. Enough said.
Jamie Foxx: Tuxes come in black, navy, or midnight blue. This charcoal suit/tux combo didn’t work. Add a black shirt and a sequined (what?) bow tie and it becomes a mess. Mr. Foxx here also wins the award for most awkward date choice. Hey, stop hitting on Kelly Rowland in front of your girlfriend, that’s just not right. Wait, that’s your daughter?!
