Men amped up the fashion on the 2022 Oscars red carpet with bold and colorful suits.
From monochrome ensembles to all-over prints, these looks stood out from black tuxedos.
“Encanto’s” Sebastián Yatra wore different daring looks for the red carpet and to perform onstage.
Timothée Chalamet went shirtless for the black-tie affair.
Timothée Chalamet had fans going wild over his shirtless appearance on the Oscars red carpet. He showed up in a cropped sequin-embellished suit jacket with lace trim and sleek trousers from Louis Vuitton.
In lieu of a shirt, the “Dune” actor wore dazzling Cartier pendant necklaces. He also piled on rings to accessorize.
“The Power of the Dog” actor Kodi Smit-McPhee wore a serene monochromatic ensemble.
Vogue named Kodi Smit-McPhee “this awards season’s breakout menswear style star,” and for good reason. His androgynous and colorful looks always pack a punch.
Smit-McPhee, a nominee for best supporting actor, wore a pale-blue Bottega Veneta suit with a Cartier necklace under the shirt collar. He also wore a bold pair of blue chunky woven shoes and a custom Cartier watch with diamonds that formed a leopard’s face.
All eyes were on Simu Liu’s bold red look.
The “Shang-Chi” star matched the actual red carpet in a red wool custom Versace suit, which he paired with a sleek bow tie and loafers. He had a harness under his jacket with the fashion house’s Medusa button on it.
Donatella Versace deemed him “the Versace hero of the Oscars red carpet” on Instagram.
Rickey Thompson’s embellished ribcage ensemble was avant-garde but not well executed.
The social-media star wore a look by CGDS with a sheer bodice that had dangling embellishments, creating a faux rib cage. He also wore a cape, trousers, and heeled boots.
However, Thompson’s look made it on Insider’s Oscars 2022 worst-dressed list. Samantha Grindell wrote that “it didn’t go far enough.”
Wesley Snipes redefined classic menswear attire in a pair of shorts.
Kristen Stewart wasn’t the only one to have a shorts moment at the Oscars. Wesley Snipes attended the event for the 30th anniversary of “White Men Can’t Jump,” and did so in style.
Wearing a custom burgundy Bogard by MikeB suit, Snipes was business on top and party on the bottom with a loincloth over a pair of Bermuda shorts over leggings.
Sebastián Yatra wore a cheery pink suit to his first Oscars.
Singer-songwriter Sebastián Yatra wore a daring pink three-piece suit on the red carpet. The custom Moschino look by Jeremy Scott included a pleated shirt, bow tie, and wingtip shoes.
In an E! red-carpet interview, Yatra said his look “shows a lot of color that comes from my country, Colombia.”
Later in the night, Yatra changed to perform “Dos Oruguitas” from “Encanto” onstage.
Written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and sung by Sebastián Yatra, “Dos Oruguitas” was nominated for best original song. The first Colombian solo artist to perform at the Oscars, Yatra rightfully wore a look from a Colombian designer, Esteban Cortázar.
The dark-purple-blue suit was embroidered with beautiful butterflies floating up the look.
Presenter Daniel Kaluuya was neon bright for the celebratory night.
The “Judas and the Black Messiah” star wore a bold and bright neon-turquoise suit jacket by Gucci. With black lapels, a button-down, and trousers, Kaluuya kept the rest of his look tame.
David Oyelowo raised the bar with a standout pattern — most other attendees weren’t so bold.
David Oyelowo showed out in a neon-yellow-green suit with a rugged floral print throughout. Wearing the African brand Kutula, the actor looked dapper.
Oyelowo also paired his ornate suit with kitschy velvet loafers with bees embroidered on them.
Bill Murray added a beret and scarf to his chic look.
Acting legend Bill Murray went for a quirky look for the awards. Looking like he stepped out of “The French Dispatch,” he wore a dark grey suit by Dior, styled with a beret and a blue polka-dot scarf.
He wore the look later in the night too to pay his respects to Ivan Reitman during the show’s in memoriam portion.
DJ D-Nice was shining on the red carpet ahead of his musical contributions to the ceremony.
Dressed in Dolce & Gabbana, D-Nice wore a polka-dotted suit with crystal lapels, jacket pockets, and cuffs. His wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses added extra drama.
D-Nice went on to change into another dramatic Dolce suit for his duties to DJ the ceremony.
Luis Fonsi performed in a festive shimmering suit to match the vibe of the “Encanto” cast.
For the first live performance of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” with the “Encanto” cast, special cameos were made by Luis Fonsi, Becky G, and Megan Thee Stallion.
To match the colorful looks of the other performers, Fonsi wore a custom shimmering blue Dolce & Gabbana ensemble. His suit was clustered with crystals and his shoes were a fantastic shiny blue leather.
To analyze and judge celebrity style on the red carpet, Brad Goreski wore animal print.
E! red carpet correspondent Brad Goreski wore a bold suit to comment on fellow daring suit-wearers. Goreski wore a dashing brown zebra-print suit jacket with dark-brown lapels by Tom Ford. Paired with a black bow tie and slacks, he also wore Louboutin dress shoes.
