Boldest and Best Dressed Men at the 2019 Oscars
Oscars 2019 Red Carpet: Boldest and Best Dressed Men
The Academy Awards is the biggest night in Hollywood, from A-listers being recognized for their performances, to the stars stealing the red-carpet spotlight with the best and boldest looks.
This year’s Oscars, held Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby Theatre in L.A., were no different when it came to the red carpet. From one guy in a gown to women in pantsuits, all bets were off when it came to style. Here are our picks for boldest and best dressed men at the 2019 Academy Awards.
Momoa arrived wearing a Fendi tuxedo specially designed for him by the late Karl Lagerfeld. Momoa’s dusty pink velvet tux, which lacked a bow tie but included a scrunchy, showed how to lighten up the formality of traditional black tie with style.

“Black Panther” star Jordan has made many a best dressed list this awards season thanks to his sophisticated yet daring style choices. (Remember the Louis Vuitton harness from the SAG Awards?) He saved the most sophisticated look for last — and the biggest — show with his blue velvet Tom Ford tuxedo and Piaget earrings, rings, and watch.
Evans, in a custom Salvatore Ferragamo tuxedo, an IWC watch, and Montblanc cuff links, displayed chivalry as he assisted Regina King up the stairs to accept her first Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
“The Favourite” actor Hoult may have been wearing all black, but he did anything but fade into the background. His Dior tuxedo with unique, cumberbund-esque pleating coming from inside his jacket made a subtle but intentional statement.
You might expect the actor portraying Freddie Mercury, one of music’s most flamboyant frontmen, to show up in something outlandish, but the “Bohemian Rhapsody” Best Actor nominee kept it classic in his YSL by Anthony Vaccarello three-piece tuxedo and Cartier watch and cuff links.
“Black Panther” star Boseman has made a reputation for daring, expertly executed style choices for his red carpet appearances. For the biggest award show of the year, he donned Givenchy Haute Couture with Bulgari jewelry.
“Crazy Rich Asians” actor Golding arrived on the red carpet wearing a something worthy of any of society’s elite in his Ralph Lauren Purple Label three-piece tuxedo. He finished it off perfectly with the white, instead of more traditional black, bow tie.
Luna, who starred with Regina King in “If Beale Street Could Talk,” may not have been nominated for his own Oscar this year, but anyone who shows up in Italian luxury from Brunello Cucinelli and Parisian perfection from Christian Louboutin has award-worthy style, if nothing else.
Noah may have flown under the radar in “Blank Panther” as the voice of Griot, but he stood out on the red carpet, as well as on stage, as he introduced the Best Picture nominee “Black Panther” in his Salvatore Ferragamo tuxedo.
One might suggest wearing red on the red carpet is like wearing camo in the woods, but when “If Beale Street Could Talk” star James arrived in a custom Etro three-piece velvet tuxedo, you couldn’t help but notice and appreciate his sanguine sartorial choice.
Cooper is nothing if not consistent in his perfectly tailored tuxedo tradition. Never one to disappoint, the “A Star Is Born” star, who also directed the nominated film, showed up ready to claim his Best Actor prize while looking sleek in a perfectly fitted, classically peak-lapeled Tom Ford tuxedo and Christian Louboutin shoes.
