Oh hey there! Welcome to part 2 of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s Oscar red carpet coverage and often the suits get relegated to quick round up at the end of a post or lumped in elsewhere. Not this year as there are so many good ones including your classic tuxedo choice and a lot of variation.
For the gowns head here. Mahershala Ali has been a regular fixture during award season and he doesn’t just stick to one look switching from white at the SAGs to black last night. Ali’s was the first award of the night and he delivered an incredible speech; he is also the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar and the significance of this right now should not be lost.
Rather than a red carpet shot I wanted to get Ali with is statue and this also gives a good look at his three piece tux and that pocket square, which adds a flash of pattern. We’re going to be keeping on the Moonlight theme for the next few photos and it is not just those in front of the camera who pulled out all the stops as writer Tarell Alvin McCraney shut everything down in this all-white ensemble. On a night of many different causes being recognized through pins and ribbons McCraney is wearing Elizabeth Taylor’s original AIDs awareness one; it has a deep level of significance as his mother died from AIDs related complications.
Along with Barry Jenkins they gave one of the most thoughtful speeches of the night when they picked up the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar.André Holland gives great classic tux and I really wish there was another season of The Knick.Chiron through ages and the these three Moonlight actors walked the red carpet together and Trevante Rhodes, Alex R. Hibbert and Ashton Sanders all look great in their matching Calvin Klein by Raf Simons suits.
David Oyelowo mentioned during his E! red carpet interview that Dolce & Gabbana always serve him well and he isn’t wrong; love the white jacket with black lapels look.Dev Patel gets all the adorable points as he brought his mother to the Academy Awards as his date (she also looks amazing) and he really is a whole lot of handsome in Burberry.Moving on to the blues and there’s nothing to feel sad about here as super stylist Ilaria Urbinati knows menswear and how to make an impact. Case in point Riz Ahmed in Ermenegildo Zegna.Chris Evans is also an Ilaria Urbinati client and in a different shade of blue – but just as striking – he’s crushing it in Salvatore Ferragamo.If someone is going to wear ruffles and pull it off it is Ryan Gosling and he looks fabulous in Gucci.Entering the cute couple zone and as always Chrissy Teigen gives great content by revealing on E! how nervous John Legend is about performing.
Unrelated, but so far I have only made one thing from Teigen’s cookbook and yet I’ve made them twice because the bacon hashbrown recipe is incredible.I was very happy to see John Cho up on stage and yes I still miss Selfie. I really love the simple elegance of his wife, Kerri Higuchi’s floral frock.There are no words to quite explain just how adorable this photo is. Just know that every time Sunny Pawar came on screen the room squealed with delight. This happened a lot.
