Brosnan should win. After all, he was taught by the best, James Bond.
What is that mock bow-tie thing that Orlando Bloom is wearing? http://www.imdb.com/features/rto/200...5-redcarpet/43 Dan
Looks like a regular hook-in-the-back small bowtie incorrectly tucked under the incorrect collar perhaps to hide the incorrect hook?
On a scale of grossness, I'd offer at least a 9.
Awesome answer. Dan
He's taking a page out of Mr. Depp's book. He is often seen wearing the bowtie tucked underneath a point collar. http://i.imdb.com/mptv1.gif
Interesting what a minuscule percentage of the men there are properly turned out. My grandfather was nomimated twice (1930, 1946) for an Oscar for art director but never won. Like his grandson, he was impolitic and shot his mouth off too much. As far as I know, I don't think the old boy had a tux.
I think Clint Eastwood's green bow tie is because of the Irish associations of "Million Dollar Baby."
I would be inclined to agree about Pierce Brosnan. When he came on, I exclaimed, "Yeah, James Bond knows how its done."
Pierce Brosnan, hands down. One button, peaked lapel, in what looked like midnight blue. Classic and perfect.
What's wrong with a notch lapel tux? Just because it's not traditional doesn't make it bad.
I thought Johnny Depp looked kinda cool.
Clint Eastwood's shirt collar was wayyyy to high. He looked like a turtle with this on top on the HUGE square shoulders of his tux.
Worst dressed was Al Pacino, just terrible.
What an absolute horror show of poor dressing. The best dressed person by far at the Oscars this year was - Johnny Carson.
I guess playing James Bond has rubbed off on Pierce Brosnan because of the people on stage, he was the only truly well dressed man. My congratulations, Mr. Brosnan.
Sidney Lumet had the right ensemble, but it wasn't quite well-fitting enough to count as well-dressed.
Clint Eastwood looked awful. Yes, he had mostly the right ensemble, but it was incredibly ill fitting. His cuffs looked like they were two inches inside the end of his sleeves. The green bowtie was too narrow. The jacket was standing at least an inch above the collar of the shirt during the acceptance speech. Not a good look.
how about + 25 pts for creativity? +25 pts for originality?
The only part I saw included one well dress man (alive, not Johnny Carson.) Yo-Yo Ma. At least he knows how to dress for the Oscars properly. I give him a perfect score, plus he was original than anyone else, I didn't see any actors getting up on stage and playing Bach.
I'll give you Yo Yo as well. I hadn't really been thinking about the musical guests.
I didn't consider Yo-Yo Ma very well dressed at all. Long tie, notch lapel jacket (I thought that's what I saw).
Are we sure Brosnan's tux was midnight blue? Looked black to me, and I was watching it in HD, which provides pretty good color reproduction.
looks black to me too bond, james bond
can you wear turn down collar with plain front, or is a pleated front more appropriate, rule-wise, with a turn down collar?
