When you’ve got the spotlight, it helps to dress the part. Case in point: the newly famous stars of The Artist, who are riding their status as Oscar favorites to a near endless stream of photo ops, press events and some of the best parties in California.

This snap from the Monday’s AMPAS luncheon is our favorite so far, showing off the best qualities of each of the three leads. Mr. Dujardin was the oily, genial leading man, always in evening clothes. Mr. Hazanavicius was the earnest scholar behind the camera, complete with a thin tie and a checked gunmetal suit that make him resemble the world’s best-dressed film professor.

And Ms. Bejo… well, she speaks for herself.
