The fancy, formal attire for the annual Oscars red carpet often lends itself to tuxedos. While a lot of guys will go with a classic black—it never fails, but doesn’t quite stand out in this sort of environment either—there’s also an influx of formal fabrics, like velvet and satin, plus bolder colors and designs. The edgier guys came out for the 2019 red carpet in things like oversized French cuffs, standout jewelry, and, in some cases, full on tuxedo dresses. Here are the best looks from the 2019 Academy Awards red carpet.
