If you don't give a fuck, why show up in the first place? It's childish rebellion pure and simple. A serious cry for help.

First thing that crossed my mind. Even so, looking mighty fine. Possibly the best of the bunch.

100% when you consider Nick "should" or "does" know better. QT may be a affected or gauche. Nick is just being a dick.

This was my reaction as well.

Accepting all the debate on the issue, this is pretty much my view too. If you really can't be arsed then just don't bother at all, a la Woody Allen.

If they ever give me a Nobel Prize or a knighthood I will suit up in tails. I'll feel a bit ridiculous as it's a step too far for me, but I'll do it cos I'll be chuffed to get the gong. If the award meant nothing to me I would just sack the whole thing off.

Because it helps them to maintain the illusion of Hollywood glamour and class. Asinine celebrity worship does not breed itself.
Really, very few of them know better and anyone that does sounds like a total crank pointing out "the rules."

Nice to see Tarantino slowly turning into Oliver Stone.

I've seen several posters allude to the fact that there's no excuse for showing up poorly dressed when you have professionals styling you, and while that should be correct, I think we are forgetting about the fact that this will only work if the stylist understands proper black tie. If celebrities have their publicist get someone to dress them then you'll probably have a combination of a 28yr old girl who thinks super slim lapels and a black skinny tie are ideal for formalwear and a brand rep who wants to push whatever look the company is going for. If that's two-button notches this year, then that's what'll show up.

When male celebrities show up looking great in TF formalwear, they look great because the designers at TF know what proper formalwear looks like, not because the celebrities do. All they know is that TF agreed to dress them, but as luck would have it, what arrives is usually pretty good. When you swap "TF" in the preceding statement for "Gucci", "YSL", "Armani", etc. then the results will not necessarily be the same.

These threads often turn into lists of comments on the badly dressed and why they are so. Can't we just have more pics of the guys who did it right, or at least mostly right?

Redmayne looked great, but having a cummerbund cover up the Bermuda triangle would have been exquisite perfection.

Just as an aside, that Les Mis musical number is really strange to watch when everyone is wearing tuxes and designer dresses instead of tattered rags and/or mid 19th-century attire.

Daniel definitely rocked that night. Midnight blue among all those blacks. 

The style of the evening IMHO.

And Russell Crowe is singing a semi-tone down from the rest of the cast and the orchestra... ffffuuuu.gif
