The Oscars is a staunchly black-tie event. But, as actor Harvey Guillen illustrated tonight, that does not mean male actors always have to opt for the run-of-the-mill penguin suit. The Puss in Boots voice actor attended the ceremony in custom-made Christian Siriano that featured delightful twists to the tuxedo. Guillen donned a black-and-silver brocade suit that included a fun surprise: the blazer cascaded out into a flowing train perfect for posing for the crowd of cameras in.
Guillen’s suit, which he wore with sleek finger waves, represents the first time Christian Siriano, who first gained fame through his size-inclusive womenswear, has crafted a plus-sized menswear look for the red carpet, Guilllen shared with E! Host Laverne Cox.
Guillen was not the only star to provide some bold, fresh updates to the black-tie dressing for men at the night’s ceremony. (It seems Timothée Chalamet’s viral shirtless moment last year might have upped the ante.) Everything, Everywhere All At Once star Harry Shum Jr. opted for a white suit with navy blue accents by Adeam (another womenswear-first brand) that the actor described as “East meets West.” The stand-out detail of the outfit? A grand navy-blue sash. While Riz Ahmed donned a blazer-san-shirt-underneath that revealed a tantalizing peek of skin.
This year, it looks like the men will bring it in their own way too.
