While the whole world argues over the horrendous mistake during awarding the most prestigious movie awards, we would like to make a brief fashion summary of all what happened on the red carpet.
Oscars 2017! If it comes to men’s trends, the 89th edition of awarding prestigious statuettes by the American Film Academy, was no surprise. All in contrast to the incorrect announcement of the winner of the best picture category 🙂
Fashion is a very important issue during Oscars (almost as getting the award), the issue about which people talk long after the ceremony ends. If it comes to the image and look, men have less problems than women. As they are a part of the most important red carpet in Los Angeles, they have to choose two paths. One place a bet on timeless classic and elegance, while others try to shock all paparazzi and the world by an eye-catching and extremely unique look. Unfortunately, the second option is usually not a good idea. People who forget to wear e.g. socks to exclusive suit jackets and trousers, find it out quickly.
Luckily, the vast majority of actors and celebrities don’t experiment with fashion and don’t want to put world attention to their bare ankles. Men dress up appropriately to the occasion and therefore they wear on sophisticated tuxedos in the limelight. So it was this time. The best dressed up men of the Academy Awards in 2017 were those who placed a bet on the style which is consistent with the principles of the etiquette of this unusual and highly anticipated event.
Ryan Gosling, an Oscar candidate, looked exactly as the actor who played in a musical which competes for the highest awards should look like. Tuxedo and a black bow tie is a classic choice, but the shirt was fancy and flawlessly referred to the fairy-tale character of ‘La La Land’. White, but decorated with subtle frills. Unfortunately, Gosling didn’t win the award during this year Oscars. The best actor award went to Casey Affleck – Ben’s younger brother – who played in ‘Manchester by the Sea’. This year’s winner placed a bet on the classic image. The only imperfect features were his hairstyle and forgetting about visiting a barber. Well, it happens sometimes.
A man who was quickly hailed as one of the best-dressed – Justin Timberlake. The musician placed a bet on elegance – a black tuxedo, a bow tie and a white shirt. However, the singer’s look was nicely enhanced by the beautiful woman who was standing next to him. Jessica Biel in her glossy and unique evening dress added a lot of glamour look to ‘classic’ Justin. They surely deserved to win ‘Best Dressed Couple’ award if only such existed. The winner of the award for ‘Best Supporting Actor Mahershela Ali used a plain styling that evening. This first Muslim actor ever who won Oscars was dressed all black. However, the background details like a watch and a breast pocket did the job. It’s worth mentioning that other film characters also looked sensational during Academy Awards. Photos of the trio in black tuxedos have been stunning all around the world.
Classy! This word can sum up this year’s Academy Awards ceremony. We need to follow their example and wait for next year ceremony.
