Awards season is hotting up and with it the fight to be named best dressed and not stray onto the pages created solely to highlight the fashion faux pas.
And while the women take centre stage on the red carpet, the men have on the whole cruised in looking everything you want a Hollywood star to be – suave, sophisticated and immaculately dressed in a traditional tux.
Most of the big names at the BAFTAs and Golden Globes have stuck to what they know – black and white with sleek edges, a bit of structure and a whole heap of sex appeal.
Like Johnny Tuxedo, they know what looks good and frankly, why mess with perfection? This is ultimately a Hollywood catwalk and these early awards set the fashion scene for the rest of the year.
Ralph Fiennes, Jamie Dornan, Jake Gyllenhaal, George Clooney, Benedict Cumberbatch – all opted for the traditional tux and looked every inch the gentleman and the perfect accessory to their perfectly coiffed dates.
But it was down to the Brits to add an extra style salute to proceedings with homegrown Eddie Redmayne and David Beckham, both opting for midnight blue and proving what we already know at Johnny Tuxedo – it’s an ultra cool alternative.
If any one of these Hollywood heartthrobs’ looks is up your street Johnny Tuxedo can complete the look without the price tag. Go traditional in our sleek and black classic tux or up the style game in our midnight blue Britannia. As ever we are leading the pack and know what looks good, so we’ll stick with midnight blue and not take it a step further into purple, thanks Matthew McConaughey!
Alternatively, if you’re looking to funk up the traditional tux with a totally modern look, you could always take a tip out of Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno’s look book after he rocked up to the BAFTAs in a white t-shirt with Black Tie written across the front.
Once again we thought of it first Serge!
