2018 Academy Awards Best Dressed Men

  March 5, 2018
  Black Tuxedo, Celebrity Tuxedo, Grey Tuxedo, Navy Tuxedo, Red Carpet, White Tuxedo

And just like that, award season comes to an end! Last night was the 90th Academy Awards ceremony, the biggest of the big, and the night where we wrap up the best in movies for the entire year. As this award season comes to an end, I think we can all agree on the biggest trend seen on the red carpet for 2018…VELVET! The velvet trend takes the cake for the looks we’ve seen celebs rocking on the red carpet in 2018. From different colored tuxedo jackets, to bow ties and accessories, they knocked it out of the park. Although velvet was definitely a fun trend to see this year, of course there were celebs who went with classic tuxedos that we always love. We have recapped our best dressed men from the 2018 Academy Awards, take a look below and enjoy!
