These Were the Best-Dressed Men at the 92nd Academy Awards

The Oscars are usually a fun if predictable affair. Last night, however, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, history was made: South Korean thriller Parasite became the first non-English film to nab Best Picture, beating out frontrunner 1917. Much to our surprise, history also repeated itself when Eminem performed his hit “Lose Yourself”, which won for Best Original Song at the 2003 Academy Awards, but Eminem was a no-show because he thought he didn’t stand a chance.

Sure, the Academy righted some past wrongs and charted a new course Hollywood’s future, but we’re here to talk fits, not films. And like the ceremony, the best-dressed dudes put their own spin on the classics but gave us a few surprises along the way:

Director Bong won four Oscars last night for Parasite, and dressed the part in his signature all-black tux. He’s certainly earned the right to “drink until next morning“!

The Pain and Glory director took the “all black everything” note a step further with a black turtleneck and black suit. But those impenetrable sunglasses make his one of the coolest looks of the night. A monochromatic masterpiece!

Hollywood’s most versatile actor opted for a classic black tux from Burberry and shared the carpet with his wife Joanne Tucker. Luckily, their Marriage Story has a happy ending.

Reeves is known for sticking to black suits on the red carpet, and this three-piece tux is the perfect contemporary take on a classic. This is why he’s The One.

Lee won for Best Adapted Screenplay last year for BlacKkKlansman, and though he was just a guest this time around, he definitely won us over on the carpet with this brilliant homage to the late Kobe Bryant. Black Mamba would be honoured.

Timmy’s polarizing Prada look had some wondering whether he was attending the awards or valeting the cars. But the devil is in the details. Workwear fit with suiting details? Check. Blinding Cartier brooch?? Check!!

In a recent chat, we spoke to the 1917  star about breaking the war film formula, and MacKay just broke the red carpet rules with this Dunhill tux with a cool, asymmetrical closure.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor and Earth-saver reminded us why classic elegance never goes out of style – and why he will always be a leading man.
