The best-dressed men at the BAFTA Awards 2019
The BAFTA Awards 2019 kicked off last night with a royal nod of approval with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge mingling with Hollywood celebrities.
The British Academy Film Awards, were held on Sunday night at Royal Albert Hall in London. Here a look at some of the best dressed men.
Mafioso menswear is high on the agenda, or so says Christian Bale: the latest star to black out by way of Giorgio Armani.
Oh, what's that? Timothée Chalamet is upstaging the old guard once again in a tux that refuses to toe the dress code? Consider the rulebook well and truly in the stylish graphic printed fire.
Vampire black tie is a thing. So much so, that the reigning king of cool Mahershala Ali just took a bite of the trend via Tom Ford's snake print tux.
Viggo Mortensen isn't quite the red carpet fixture. And yet, on the back of Green Book's success, the 60-year-old is just as proficient as the usual suspects, pivoting from the masses with a midnight blue three-piece.
Thought cummerbunds were a bit Pavarotti? Well, you thought wrong, didn't you. Chiwetel Ejiofor's Giorgio Armani take makes a more tuneful hit, looking to the old hymn sheet of black tie dressing.
Bond material? Consider the odds officially shortened thanks to Richard Madden's undeniably classic tux. We're shaken. Very much so. And a bit stirred.
In a sea of penguin suits, Taron Egerton took the jewel carriageway to pole position, opting for an emerald smoking jacket by Giorgio Armani.
Since the littlest details make for a Very Stylish Man, it pays to sweat the small stuff. Which is exactly what Luke Evans did, making a subtle switch from silk to velvet (by way of Corneliani) for one big look.
When you're partly responsible for the current state of black tie, it makes total sense for Mr Valentino Garavani to crash the party. And needless to say, he's already dressing better than most on the red carpet in a triumvirate of tux-friendly layers.
If Beale Street Could Talk director Barry Jenkins isn't afraid to break the rules. If that means eschewing socks entirely for a tux made modern, then so be it.
