Red Carpet Style: All Our Favorite Menswear Looks

Celebrity January 16th, 2024

From The Emmys, Golden Globes & Critic’s Choice

We are just two weeks into the new year and it seems that Brian’s wish of “not trend chasing” in 2024 is already coming to fruition.

Between the Golden Globes, Critic’s Choice Awards and the Emmys, the red carpet has been surprisingly diverse with a tone of playfulness and creativity among men (and some women) that seem to be looking to expand beyond the traditional tuxedo attire.

As much as I enjoy manifesting Joan Rivers’s snarky spirit for my red carpet takes on Instagram Stories during the shows themselves, this spotlight is not about critiquing who did it right or wrong, rather to applaud the men of Hollywood for breaking out of the box.

The last few awards seasons up until now have been pretty expected and showcased overly safe looks from both men and women, so this shift is not only seismic, but extremely appreciated. But since this is HSS, after all, we’ll kick things off with some of our favorite classic looks.


Okay, I know I said this wasn’t a take on who did it right or wrong, but I do want to acknowledge the men that wore a more traditional look. Not just because they looked effortlessly handsome, but because the fit was tailored to perfection. Which, as we know, most men that are styled for these carpets do not have the same fate.

We don’t typically see so many men experimenting with color and are really enjoying the rich hues on display here.

Men have been accessorizing for the last few award seasons, but something about jewelry with a monochromatic look, or an unexpected collar that feels like a perfect juxtaposition.

Men have also been exploring an open neckline — Cillian and Jeremy with just one open button, and Jonathan, Ryan and Lenny showing much more. Which, I personally do not mind.

It feels appropriate since men are inspired to take more risks, that (a lot of) women have been inspired by the boys and playing around with menswear pieces.

Perhaps I’m giving away my vintage, but I remember GAP’s “Give Stripes/Love Train” ad from 2002. As a result of that wildly successful ad campaign, I asked for and received one of those scarves for Christmas that year. It was dark brown with a beige block stripe, and perfectly complemented my high school varsity jacket. While, like many people, I stopped wearing the jacket after high school, that scarf stayed with me and I wore it for the next decade-plus.

Since then, my tastes have evolved and, with many of my sartorial bases covered, I’ve begun to consider higher-quality accessories. An upgraded winter beanie/watch cap. Closer-fitting gloves. And, the scarf. Acrylic and nylon versions are plentiful and cheap; some of them may even look nice. They’ll certainly keep you warm. But, that’s about it. Synthetics don’t properly regulate your body heat and actually trap it inside. This results in overheating and sweating. The moisture on your skin then gets cold…which defeats the purpose of the scarf in the first place.
