No Tuxedos Allowed


For all the pageantry associated with black tie events, they tend to be a bit…uncreative.

Take this Pete-Campbell esque suit for example, worn by Darren Aronofsky to the Academy Awards luncheon earlier this week. You’d never get away with this sort of thing in black tie territory, but at an event where a fair number of the attendees were wearing jeans, it’s entirely fair game. And, as it happens, it’s pretty sharp.

And while we're not giving up the tux-watch entirely, but we've gotten a lot more out of this year's luncheon class pic than anything we've seen on a red carpet. Between Aaron Sorkin’s old-man suit and the Coen Brothers’ grad-student scruff, you can actually get a sense of personal style, which is more than we can say for the last few telecasts.

But the main lesson, as usual, is that Jeff Bridges always looks fantastic.
