The best and most daring men's fashion at the 2023 Oscars that went beyond a basic black tuxedo
The 2023 Oscars were held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, on Sunday.
Some celebrities ditched basic suits and chose bold red-carpet looks.
Justin Hurwitz wore a turquoise tuxedo, and Harvey Guillén made history with Christian Siriano.
Kwan, who wrote and directed "Everything Everywhere All at Once," wore a maroon suit that paid homage to Michelle Yeoh's character, Evelyn, in the film. The character wore a red cardigan with the same floral pattern on the sleeves and "Punk" emblazoned on the back.
Kwan's red-carpet version was a custom Goodfight design, a Los Angeles-based streetwear brand.
Keoghan, who was nominated for his role in "The Banshees of Inisherin," wore a lavender suit with white starburst buttons designed by Louis Vuitton.
Hong paid tribute to "Everything Everywhere All At Once" with googly eyes on his bow tie.
In the movie, Ke Huy Quan's character, Waymond, regularly sticks googly eyes on items, much to the annoyance of his wife, Evelyn.
Mescal put a fun spin on the traditional tuxedo with his Gucci look, which featured an oversized white jacket and flared black pants. He added a red rose pin to his lapel.
The "Puss in Boots: The Last Wish" actor wore a shimmering black brocade suit with wide-legged pants and a jacket with a train.
The look was designed by Christian Siriano. Guillén told "E! Live From the Red Carpet" host Laverne Cox that it was the first time Siriano had dressed a plus-size male actor on the red carpet.
Johnson told Entertainment Tonight that his shiny suit jacket, designed by Dolce & Gabbana, was "ballet pink," and that he chose the matching pink flower on his lapel to honor his daughters.
"In Polynesian, there's a term we have, 'puamana,' it means 'strength of a flower,'" Johnson said. "So this represents my daughters."
Harry Shum Jr.
The "Everything Everywhere All At Once" star described his Adeam look, with a sash reminiscent of a traditional Japanese obi, as "East meets West," according to The New York Times.
Prada designed Ahmed's modern suit. A pink shirt with an oversized brown collar poked out from beneath the jacket.
The "Babylon" composer wore a turquoise tuxedo with a black bow tie and shiny black shoes.
Dano's custom Dolce & Gabbana look included a pink shirt and bow tie, a black jacket adorned with subtle sparkles, and black pants.
Brian Tyree Henry
Henry, who was nominated for best supporting actor for his role in "Causeway," wore a white suit jacket and matching shirt covered in floral embroidery designed by Dolce & Gabbana. He added a few silver chains to his jacket, as well.
The "RRR" star brought a touch of traditional Indian fashion to the awards show, wearing a black kurta and a velvet bandhgala jacket designed by Shantanu & Nikhil. Charan accessorized with an oversized military-inspired pin.
Kravitz, who performed during this year's In Memoriam tribute, paired his chest-baring Saint Laurent look with classic black sunglasses and multiple silver necklaces.
The composer wore a black Bode suit embellished with beaded flowers, along with a simple ribbon tie.
LaBelle, who starred in best picture nominee "The Fabelmans," didn't let the switch from a red carpet to a Champagne carpet stop him — instead, he wore a dashing burgundy suit.
N. Bird Runningwater
The film producer attended the awards in black sequined pants, a black jacket, and an oversized velvet red tie.
Zurzolo, who starred in the Polish film "EO," wore a black Gucci suit jacket adorned with crystals in the shape of stars and constellations.
Elba was another actor who skipped a simple black jacket — instead he went for a royal-blue look designed by Gucci. He also chose a bow tie, adding a bit of old-school Hollywood glamour.
Samuel L. Jackson
Jackson chose a metallic pewter jacket and matching silver bow tie designed by Giorgio Armani for Hollywood's biggest night.
"The Fabelmans" star, who walked the carpet with his wife, Lauren Miller, wore a Brioni cream-colored tuxedo jacket, gray pants, and a matching gray bow tie.
