    Wow...George Clooney buttoned the bottom button of a two-button tux. My perception of reality is shattered.

    Daniel Day Lewis looks freaking fantastic. Midnight blue, single button, shawl collar, self tie bowtie, sliver of pocket square. If you wanna get picky he has flap pockets, but great overall.

    I agree...I don't always like shawl lapels, but he is rocking it.

    I think shawl collars are more elegant for black tie.

    So far I would say Bradley Cooper is the one to beat...

    They really dressed Seth MacFarlane rather dully. Considering he has that old-time swagger about him....

    Daniel Day Lewis bossing the night, wearing Domenico Vacca. He easily outshines the ass clowns in notch lapels and black shirts. Seth McFarland in Gucci w/ notches...

    Not just notches. Single vent, flapped pockets, and two buttons. It's just a black suit.
