Oscars 2021 are marked by diversity and integration, but one thing never changes, every artist must dress to impress. “Formal is totally cool if you want to go there, but casual is really not”, this was the dress code to comply with. Daily Design news brings you the best men’s outfits of the Oscars award night.
1. Leslie Odom Jr.
With a gilt double-breasted tuxedo by Brioni and a knuckle-duster of a Cartier Panthere ring, the Best Supporting Actor nominee looked fierce in its golden suite at the Oscars. Using technology that’s only been employed by one house before Brioni, the suit’s fabric is electroplated with pure 24-karat gold.
2. Steven Yeun
With a perfectly fitting single-breasted tuxedo with wide peak lapels from Gucci, the nominee for Best Actor in a Leading Role paired his suit with a crisp white shirt, double-breasted vest, and a teardrop bowtie.
3. Daniel Kaluuya
Striking a nice balance between formality and ease in a minimalist black suit by Bottega Veneta, the nominated for Best Supporting Actor complemented his monochromatic look at the Oscars with a Cartier diamond necklace and skeletonized Santos watch.
4. Lakeith Stanfield
Jumpsuits would scare most of us off but Stanfield did not choose a traditional tux. With a custom Saint Laurent, the actor exudes a groovy look due to the dramatic camp collar and yellow-lensed shades.
5. Alan Kim
Celebrating his 9th birthday just before this year’s Oscars, one of the stars of Minari, Alan Kim, wore a custom Thom Browne look on the red carpet. Due to wearing shorts with a jacket whose lapels were piped with grosgrain ribbon, the actor’s outfit offered a British school uniform flair.
6. Sacha Baron Cohen
With a Ralph Lauren Purple Label whole look, Cohen wore a chocolate brown peaked lapel dinner jacket and matching bow tie with cream-colored trousers and smoking slippers. As elegant as traditional black or navy, brown is usually not the most seen color on the red carpet.
7. Colman Domingo
Wearing a high-wattage and sequined custom look from Versace, one of the stars of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, was the focal point of the Oscars night due to the incandescent shade of pink. Its color and texture are representative of the optimism at the moment due to the world starting to open up again.
