Hollywood’s Biggest Night in Quick Review!

The ladies undoubtedly have more creative freedom when it comes to rocking the red carpet, but this year’s Academy Awards featured some standout looks for the leading men. At an event like the Oscars, we pretty much know everybody is going to wear a tuxedo on the red carpet. That strict dress code puts a lot of men in your classic black notch lapel number. That’s not a bad thing (as long as it fits properly), but at last night’s Academy Awards plenty of guys went with shawl collar jackets. As a fitting ode to old school Hollywood, if you’re looking for an alternative tuxedo, the shawl collar is your celebrity-endorsed move.

However, if last night’s red carpet told us anything, it’s that the man brooch is officially a thing. Leading men like Jared Leto, Common, and Clint Eastwood added interest, and a little sparkle, to their lapels with everything from corsage riffs to jewels.

Overall, the men brought their A game on the red carpet, looking dapper in their sleek suits, ties and perfectly manicured hair and beards.From Jared Leto‘s swoon-worthy custom baby blue Givenchy ensemble to Benedict Cumberbatch‘s dapper white suit, we were drooling over the incredibly good looking men at the Sunday’s 87th Annual Academy Awards!
