    Most of the dinner suits/tuxedos had flapped pockets, which was disappointing but not surprising.

    Did anyone notice that Eddie Redmayne (Les Mis) looked to be wearing a pair of black, velvet slippers with his tuxedo?

    I'm pretty sure Tarantino looked exactly how he wanted.

    Well, kind of, yeah. Certainly not like someone who is trying to look "respectable" or elegant. His movies and his dress come from the same place stylistically.

    Walhberg was the worst I saw. In the jimmy kimmel after show I noticed kimmel had a tux with a classic pogoda shoulder. There was a time I thought i wanted one. After seeing it, I'm glad I never went that route.

    I figured I can't have been the only one to notice the notch lapels on the host... my girlfriend didn't seem to care so much.

    These are probably the best dressed of the night:

    Bradley Cooper in Tom Ford:

    Wouldn't change much with his tuxedo. Although, in some other photos you might seem some collar gap. Might have also considered going with a wing collar since he's wearing peaked lapels and maybe added a pocket square, but I thought he looked quite sharp.

    Christoph Waltz in Prada:

    Nice to see a tuxedo in midnight blue. I thought his fit him better than Daniel Day Lewis' tuxedo as you watched them move up the stage to accept their Oscars. Biggest point of contention would be to show more cuff. Next biggest: the flap pockets. Smallest point would be the lack of a pocket square.

    Hugh Jackman in Tom Ford:

    Probably my favorite of the night with a double-breasted shawl collar in a 6x2 configuration.

    EDITED to add Chris Pine in Ermenegildo Zegna:

    The effort they put into standing out kinda defeats the purpose of black tie. Is this really a black tie event? It shouldn't, then. Why define a dress code when everyone's gonna try to skip it.

    I believe the really eccentric types can get away with "creative" ensembles, but on people like Clooney or Gere it looks sloppy. Just my 2c.

    Looks like Ben Affleck is wearing a waistcoat AND a cummerbund.

    I think this is very likely, especially when one looks at the roles he plays in his own movies (From Dusk till Dawn and Planet Terror for example).

    It looked like he made his tie out of a black Hefty bag.

    Wahlberg is usually one of the best-dressed at these events...but it looked like his biceps were going to burst out of his sleeves.

    Agreed, the sleeves were too tight. It isn't supposed to fit like a t-shirt. I thought Channing Tatum's tux was nice (albeit, a bit off in the shoulder), and I usually don't like shawls. Bradley Cooper's pants are too small in a few places. Chris Pine's is nice, too.

    For me, it's all about his choice(s) of footwear:
