Last years Do’s and Don’ts of Black Tie featuring the Oscars was very well received so I thought I’d compile another Oscars Best (and Worst) Dressed 2015 article for 2015, albeit slightly less useful than last years (please refer to it if you’d like tips on the Black Tie dress code).
Watching the Oscars on a Sunday night isn’t something I’ve done before, nor have I watched the entire Red Carpet show on ABC. Honestly I thought it was pretty lacklustre and we get the absolute best of it in Australia so don’t worry, you’re not missing out.
This year the Black Tie dress code was adhered to far better than any year I can recall. Neil Patrick Harris led the charge both on the Red Carpet, and on stage, with two well styled (and well fitted) shawl collar tuxedos and a third Zegna DB. I didn’t 100% agreed with the colour of his Red Carpet tux but he made up for it once he walked on stage.
I ranted on about getting the dress code right last year and it seemed most (including Cumberbatch) got it right, disregarding the traditional cummerbund requirement. Here’s a few of the standouts.
And the worst.
