And then notice John Legend's butterfly. Like Andrew Garfield, another way to do classic - this time with flap pockets instead of jet, balanced by a slightly less formal shoe. Photo by Steve Granitz/WireImage

Pharrell Williams channeling Karl Lagerfeld.A tails coat is typically reserved for white tie only, but works amazingly here as a mash up. His use of texture via the cummerbund, lapel pin and jewelry really takes this to the next level.

And the winners are…

To be honest, Hollywood actors have tended to disappoint when it comes to red carpet style. Lots of poorly fitting tuxedos, trousers that are not hemmed properly and generally poor choices in footwear.

At last night’s Academy Awards, however, there was evidence that more men are figuring it out. From the classic black tuxedo to black tie creative, velvet and even a smoking jacket, there was some timeless and welcomely unique style on display.

Here are some of our favorite looks. Who’d get your vote?

Thanks for reading.

Stylishly Yours,

      Indeed!

    Really not a fan of dress shirt almost covering the whole fist then followed by a matching overly-long suit jacket sleeve.

      Are you talking about John Legend?

    ANDREW GARFIELD & MAHERSHALA ALI WERE A VIRTUAL TIE FOR ME! GARFIELD MADE THE CLASSIC LOOK GREAT AND ALI MADE THE NEW GREAT WITH THE BLACK ON BLACK!
