Oscars 2023 Red Carpet Showdown, Men’s Division: N. T. Rama Rao Jr. vs. Dwayne Johnson

Posted on March 17, 2023

We’ve already pitted our favorite ladystar Oscars looks against each other and you can go vote for your fave here. It’s time to do the men. It’s always time to do the men. This year, two of the hottest, most jacked action stars of the year opted to turn it out for the Oscars and we couldn’t be happier to see it. Big dudes, line up for your assessments.


T’s Pick: N. T. Rama Rao Jr. in Gaurav Gupta Couture

T’s defense: Because I’ll always applaud when someone challenges western male formal dress codes on the red carpet. Because the Bandhgala is rich and perfectly fitted to him. Because the tiger embellishment is not just gorgeously rendered, but it also evokes India, Jr. NTR’s nickname (The Young Tiger) and the most iconic scene in RRR. And also because he just looks insanely hot in it. 


Lo’s Pick: Dwayne Johnson in Dolce & Gabbana

Lo’s defense:  Because he had a rough time of it when Black Adam flopped and he could’ve just come out in something standard to give an “all is well” sort of message but chose to be bold instead. Because he not only chose pink, he chose satin as well. Because he insisted on telling every interviewer that he was wearing “ballet pink.” Because he looks amazing in it. 

There you have it, kittens! Two hot men! Two hot looks! Do your duty and VOTE:
