I really can't believe that no one has mentioned Robin Williams.  The man looked absolutely ridiculous..
I just couldn't believe the beard - is he living on the streets now or what? Bradford

I think prince looked utterly ridiculous, was watching it with a bunch of family and everyone was like WTF. when he came out... kinda like a schoolboy look but with a bright blue/purple velvet blazer and cream colored pants rather than khaki... Is it me, or does he look a lot lighter (in skin tone) than he did in Purple Rain?

I couldn't quite make out whether the lapel was peaked or notched, but Warren Beatty looked very appropriate. I must say I'd forgotten (until the clips reminded me) that Carson had worn white tie when he was Master of Ceremonies years ago. If you'd asked me, I'd have said he'd worn black tie, but no. To what can we account this four-in-hand apostasy when all the world knows that only a bow tie is appropriate? Most men seem to wear the four-in-hand in black or white, so the peacock argument wouldn't seem to apply. Bow ties were in a distinct minority. Sadly, with the few rare exceptions others have noted, most of the men were dressed no better--from the points of view of both 'correctness' and simple fit-- than high school boys at their junior prom. What happened to hooray for Hollywood?

Bradford, the women in Sidney Lumet's box were his wife (whose mother is Lena Horne) and daughters.

Actually - in doing a little internet research, I see that he divorced his second wife (who was Lena Horne's daughter in 1978) and married his third wife in 1980. He does have two daughters though - so that's probably who it was - but more likely his current wife - not one of his ex's. Bradford

Thanks, Bradford. I guess I haven't been keeping up with Mr. Lumet's matrimonial history. I must say I noticed that the wife seemed a bit young (and light-skinned) to be the mother of the daughters, but reasoned that Hollywood mothers naturally aspire to look younger than their offspring. I remembered, too, that Lena Horne's husband was Lennie Hayton, who was white, and thus surmised that recessive genes could explain her granddaughters' being darker-skinned than her daughter. But a different wife is a much better explanation. Thanks again for setting me wise.

Yep - I wouldn't have known either - thank goodness for Google Bradford

I share the exact sentiment on the shawl collar with you, LA Guy. I'm really digging it. Maybe I'm just falling under the Dior marketing umbrella though. http://www.imdb.com/features/rto/200...5-redcarpet/64 Remind me why I'm not dating this girl??

Yup, definitely skinny shawl collar is a good look.

She is the hottest actress in Hollywood right now. Who's this goober (I mean, aging hipster): http://www.imdb.com/features/rto/200...-redcarpet/103 Someone needs to tell homeboy that dreads clown hairdos don't look good with a receding hairline.

And this guy has to rank as one of the most handsome men alive, yet he always looks as if he's been sniffing glue: http://www.imdb.com/features/rto/200...-redcarpet/143

Adam Duritz, lead singer of Counting Crows. As a Cal alum I'll give him one point for the blue suit/yellow silk pocket handkerchief combo during his performance. I agree that he indeed looks clownish, but I suspect his response would be something along the lines of "So what? I screwed Jennifer Aniston and you didn't."

I think it's more like bragging about a used Ferrari.
