    Ahhh, but he loses points for no vest or cummerbund. He still wins.

    Brosnan looked sharp and masculine, classic and modern. Â Better than the gold guy behind him in the photo. Â Even more statuesque. As to dinner jacket choices, I notice not many double-breasted anymore, whether peak or shawl. Â I suppose the DJ has evolved since the '30s into a more manly, formal thing in its connotations; so single-breasted and structured simplicity look best now for most events. But I think the soft DB, with pumps, always has a place, and says a lot about casual elegance in evening wear. http://www.carygrant.net/fotogallery...s11/11-p11.jpg

    Piere Brosnan was properly dressed.

    Although Prince was quite the natty dresser.

    I have never seen so many bad dressed people, together.

    Leonardo's suit looked pretty nice. Nice pair of pants actually. Oh, and who is that obnoxious looking woman in a blue dress, she has horse teeth, a huge pair of tits and her naked back shows all the way down to the buttcrack. http://www.imdb.com/features/rto/200...-redcarpet/198 .luc

    uh oh, nevermind, it's hilary swank. I hope she acts better than she dresses.
    Guess she's been gulping too many steroids to build up these jaws.

    I don't know - she's actually kinda cute with her hair let down. I think Depp is a great ctor but must he always dress as a moron?

    Come on. Lay off Hillary.She has a fantastically sexy back and that was a great dress-not too overly austere,sexy,smart.I think Jamie Foxx is awesome at acting,not dressingWhat's up with that slim shawl collar gettup,and topping it off with an overly bulky ,fat ass knotted tie.At least wear a slim tie if your jacket has slim lapels.

    Here's another vote for Pierce Brosnan as best dressed.  Not even close.

    OK - I fell asleep on the couch - but not before seeing some of the show - Brosnan definitely looked the best to me - too bad they stuck him presenting with an animated character (although I loved The Incredibles) and what was with the James Bond theme? I was surprised they did that since he's no longer playing that role. Bradford P.S. Who was the woman in Sidney Lumet's box with the huge breasts - was that his wife or daughter? I couldn't tell if the three women were daughter, daughter, wife or daughter, trophy wife, mother [​IMG]

    Pierce Brosnan definitely best dressed.

    Leonardo DiCaprio had the best fashion accessory (Giselle)

    Adrian Brody was the worst dressed (he wasn't presenting anything, thank goodness.) He had an open collar shirt open to mid chest, and a big garish gold chain on his neck.

    Prince was just strange, but at least he was trying to look strange.

    I was wondering if it was some sort of Spencer Hart or Ozwald Boateng monstrosity. Boateng seems set to become a high-rent Stacy Adams.

    P.Diddy apparently is claiming to have designed (help design?) Jamie Foxx's outfit. Very slim shawl collar, I didn't think it looked too bad - at least it fit well. I thought his shirt collar was much too large and too spread, and that knot obviously too big.

    I hated Swank's dress. Taking that mullet rationale way too far...

    Didn't see Brosnan, but will take your guys' word for it. I think Prince deserves a nod for most original with the Gatsby-esque purple/cream/white thing... But then I like his music and purple, so perhaps I should recuse myself as arbiter (as Manton would say [​IMG] )

    P.S. Forgot to mention - I woke up as the credits started and then nearly fell asleep again (they were awfully long) - but I did notice that Chris Rock's tuxedo was listed as being by SeanJohn - so P. Diddy played a role there - wouldn't be surprised if he didn't supply Jaime Foxx's outfit as well.
