If you caught the 66th Annual Emmy Awards last week, you probably were not too focused on the fashion. Sure, we were all on the edge of our seat waiting to see who won Best Drama or Outstanding Lead Actor/Actress. But let’s face it, the best award was one not actually announced: Best Dressed.
Even at red carpet events, A-list men are often reduced as “accessories” to their elaborately dressed dates. Although men’s fashion is booming, we often focus our attention on the women of the red carpet. True, how many times can you reinvent a tuxedo so that it steals the spotlight? But with beautifully tailored tuxedos, you really can’t beat a classic! Matt Bomer and Adam Levine both looked impeccable in their classic black tuxedos. Levine even added his own flair by showing up in a pair of sunglasses.
As we pointed out in a previous post, stars are, more and more, sporting shades of blue. In recent years, celebrities have slowly begun to veer away from the classic black tuxedo and add a pop of color with navy. The trend in blue tuxedos was not forgotten at the Emmys; stars such as Matthew McConaughey, Seth Meyers, and Ty Burrell all rode in on the blue tux wave.
We often expect to see stars making bolder statements on the red carpet, and although not many do, there are always a select few that manage an eye-catching style. Ryan Sweeting wore a twist of the blue fad. With black pants and a brighter blue jacket, Sweeting made a statement without standing out. Jack Antonoff also changed up the norm with his brown tux. Antonoff wasn’t the only celebrity changing it up in brown; Jim Parsons was also seen wearing a brown tuxedo. Parsons wore an all brown tux, while Antonoff paired his brown jacket with black pants. Though shades of brown definitely aren’t the first color you think of for black tie events, the color stood out nicely among the sea of black.
As men’s fashion evolves, male celebrities are no longer being placed in the background to their female dates. From classics to bold statements, the stars on the red carpet looked incredible. So, who do you think deserves Best Dressed for this year’s Emmy Awards? Vote here or leave a comment!
