Last nights Oscars led the way to bring out some of the best in Hollywood. Some sang, some presented and some took Oscar gold home. But only a few made it on our Best Dressed list for Oscar 2013. These men came dressed to impress!
In the wake of one of music’s biggest night, the Grammys, we look back to bring you some of our favourite looks on the red carpet. These looks not only feature some of this biggest names in the game but also some of the hottest trends for the season.
So, without further adue here is another edition of our Runway to Reality series where we you get the chance to add some red carpet flare to your wardrobe.
Let’s face it: Bradley Cooper has never been know for his style, but since the growing popularity of his Oscar nominated movie Silver Linings Playbook, the actor has stepped up his game. This was him on the red carpet at the 2013 Sag Awards, where he wore a classic navy blue, black shawl collar satin lapel tux by Tom Ford. He paired this with a black bow tie and black patent leather shoes.
Now, we dont know the exact price of this suit, but suffice it to say given that it is Tom Ford you know you’ll be paying upwards of $3,000, for the suit alone! Luckily, you have us and it wouldn’t be runway to reality if we couldn’t offer you something stunningly comparable. Check out this tailored navy blue tux from SAND ($1250), paired with a crisp white Caliban shirt ($175), Dion black bow-tie ($94), and Luca Vero patent leather shoes ($250).
Another guy doing his part to keep Toronto as Canada’s most stylish city is jazz crooner Matt Dusk. Has anyone ever seen this man in something other than a suit? He is constantly polished, put together, and always has the most dapper way of wearing colours, patterns, and making traditional style sexy.
James Franco is a man of style and success. He’s an award-winning actor, director, philanthropist, and a professor at NYU. Needless to say, he’s come a long way from Freaks and Geeks. This week, Franco shows us how to dress young, a balance of polished and disheveled; ideal look for 20-somethings in the city.
Like the guys before Franco (Dean, McQueen), he’s the essence of cool. He gets this air of coolness from his simple, masculine fashion choices, mixed with edgy and modern details. When he’s casual, it’s New York City downtown and when he’s suited up, he still holds on to a piece of that. He is a noted fan of formal way, which lately has improved a great deal.
Your first step to getting Franco’s style is a leather jacket, his staple piece for casual outfits. Like most of our younger Celeb Style guys, simple t-shirts and jeans also apply to this style. Layer them with plaids, henleys, leather jackets, and sweaters when the mercury drops.
The key to Franco’s look is not looking like you spent a lot of time looking in the mirror, it takes confidence; but it’s an ideal look for students, creative-types, and downtown guys who need the versatility this style offers.
Even in Freaks and Geeks he was reminiscent of James Dean. Now he’s just mixed in layers and modern details.
Last week’s look at Michael Fassbender was a modern take on masculinity, this week we go back to the classics with the King of Cool – Steve McQueen.
Michael Fassbender is everywhere, from the cover of GQ, in Box Office hits, and all over the internet. He’s the man that women love and men want to be.
We’ve talked about a lot of celeb guys who wear colour; but Fassbender lies on the neutral side of the colour wheel. His understated masculine look is forever in style, and guarantees that the clothes won’t be wearing you. At a certain age, men begin opting for quality over trends or quantity (in all aspects of life). We like to refer to men in this part of their life as Gotstyle Men.
The best accessory for any red carpet is a stunning date on your arm, which both Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen prove. But, there were a few guys who were able to stand alone and still look amazing thanks to their outfit choices. Here’s our top picks from last night’s Met Gala.
Tom Brady’s classic tux included a velvet jacket, bigger bowtie and pocket square, helping him look more James Bond than quarterback.
