The 2014 Oscars: Our Favorite Men’s Looks from the Red Carpet

By Attireclub @attireclub

Last night, the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood hosted the 2014 edition of the Oscars. The show, hosted by comedienne Ellen DeGeneres took place a week after it is usually scheduled to avoid conflict with the broadcast of the winter Olympics.

The big winner of the evening was “Gravity”, winning seven awards, including the one Alfonso Cuarón, who won the Academy Award for best director.

The staple element in terms of men’s fashion from this year’s Oscars edition was the bow tie. Even though the men kept it as classic as usually (we still don’t get it why they won’t wear more color, shine, prints or texture), most men chose to wear bow ties as their accessory of choice.

Kevin Spacey wore a great marine blue tuxedo, which was a very good choice for him, while Jared Leto wore a red satin silk bow tie, which went great with his black and white outfit. Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey wore a fantastic white jacket with black lapels, while Johnny Weir’s outfit gave the viewers of the red carpet show something to talk about.  The figure skater’s outfit was not something he necessarily wore to stand out (however, we did not meet and asked him), but it was a great lesson of how we can express who we are or what we do through our clothes. The color white was a definite indicator of ice, which is basically his work place, and who else is more appropriate to wear so much glitz than a professional ice skater?

All the men wearing pretty much the same thing, with small variations of course, is a valuable lesson to any guy trying to find or simply discover his style. What we can all learn from this is that even though our clothes might make us look great, the things that really make us stand out come from within. Just look at Mario Lopez’s attitude or at how Joseph Gordon-Levitt always has a way of standing out without doing anything in particular. And there’s one more thing we can learn: that, again, simplicity is often the best way to go when it comes to your outfits.

The 2014 Oscars were a great show of course, but they were also a good opportunity to look for inspiration for outfits and see how some of the world biggest stylists of today see the menswear world. It looks like the classic suit is not going anywhere, but that the bow tie takes the spotlight again and shines in all its glory.

Take a look at a gallery of pictures containing some of our favorite looks from the runway in terms of men’s fashion and decide for yourself: who’s outfit was your favorite, and more importantly, why?
