The Golden Globes red carpet—or any red carpet for that matter—is typically dominated by a large assortment of fancy frocks. Men’s suiting usually takes a back seat during awards show fashion. But that’s all changing. Hollywood gents are stepping up their style choices, and that doesn’t necessarily mean louder or splashier designs. Tonight, the Globes proved that with subtle updates on tailoring, menswear can be just as dazzling as a sequined gown or tulle skirt—in fact, at this year’s ceremony, strong men’s suiting seemed to hold its own in an evening filled with loads of stellar dresses.
Some of the evening’s best dressed male A-listers? Brad Pitt and Daniel Craig both proved that a classic black tuxedo suit, white shirt, and black bowtie will never tire. Rami Malek also went with black suiting, though he opted for an ultra-skinny fit with a slim tie to match, from Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello. There were a few rule breakers, too: Jojo Rabbit director Taika Waititi hit the step and repeat in a white evening jacket with black shades—a cool combination of evening and casual wear. Director Barry Jenkins also twisted classic menswear codes, opting for a plaid grey suit with graphic striping along the right sleeve and pant leg.
Above, the 10 best dressed men of the night.
