As we’ve noted a time or two, there was a ton of red carpetry this week. Since we’ve already got best-dressed votes going for the men and women on the Oscars red carpet, we decided to do two things for our weekly showdown. Restrict the choices to non-Oscars red carpetry, and stage a menswear and womenswear showdown.
First, up: BOYSTYLE.
Lo’s Pick: Darren Criss at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Partyin Emporio Armani.
Lo’s Defense: He never looked this impeccable before. The style, grooming and fit — all perfect. The color looks amazing on him and I love the texture of the jacket. He really stood out that night, by picking a noticeable tuxedo and looking so beautiful in it. It feels classic but fresh.
T’s Pick: Tom Holland in Dolce&Gabbana at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Dolce&Gabbana.
T’s Defense: See, this is the color that really wow’d me. The shades of red are perfectly balanced to look deliberate rather than mismatched. And it’s just so great to show up at the Vanity Fair party in something disco-hot rather than formal. His hair looks great, the suit fits beautifully and it all stands out for being unexpected. And it has to be said: he looks scorching hot. Like never before. It just works.
Stop drooling and vote, darlings!
