From Lenny Kravitz’s show-stopping look to Harry Shum Jr.’s kimono-inspired tuxedo, these are the best dressed men at the 2023 Oscars
While traditional black and white color palettes and conventional suits may seem mundane to some, men at the champagne-colored carpet at the 95th annual Academy Awards proved otherwise. Before the awards were even given out, these gentlemen wowed everyone with their impeccable attire showing that there are a variety of ways to put a modern spin on the classic tuxedo and most popular color combination.

Oscar-nominated Paul Mescal looked stylish as usual in this white tuxedo jacket, black bow tie, wide-legged black trousers, and patent leather shoes. The crimson rose pinned to the lapel also complements the outfit and lends an air of romance and refinement.
Ram Charan sported a dapper new style in the three-piece traditional Indian outfit he wore, which was made of sleek black velvet. The buttons and the badge on his chest were fantastic touches, too. In an interview, the South Indian actor shared that he is proud to be there representing his heritage.
Reece Feldman was definitely dressed to impress when he appeared at the Oscars carpet in a black deconstructed sword blazer with inverted notched lapel in silk. This outfit was part of Dickson Lim’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection.
N. T. Rama Rao Jr.
Just like his fellow Indian actor Ram Charan, N. T. Rama Rao Jr. proudly displayed his heritage in a sharp black jacket adorned with gold embroidery. He wore India’s history and culture on his sleeve—literally. “I have the tiger, the national animal of India here. It’s not going to be an actor from RRR who’s walking the carpet, but India that walks the carpet,” he mentioned.
Perhaps it isn’t true that only actors can turn heads when walking the runway. Dressed to the nines in a bespoke Prada suit and a studded shirt, tie, and black gloves, Belgian Close director Lukas Dhont looked just dashing at the Oscars. The Boucheron earrings and the hint of red were also lovely additions to his look.
Why settle with dull when you can dazzle? Lorenzo Zurzolo proved this when he brought the glitter onto the champagne-colored carpet with him in this Gucci suit with crystals embroidered all over.
Harry Shum Jr.
Everything Everywhere All At Once Star Harry Shum Jr. turned heads in this half-kimono, half-tuxedo ensemble by Adeam. The stunning white and navy suit featured an overlapping collar and sash-like belt.
Michael B. Jordan
Actor and director of Creed III Michael B. Jordan arrived at the Oscars looking suave in a Louis Vuitton double-breasted tuxedo with a satin lapel, but it was the flash of jewels that was the real show-stopper. Adorned in his lapel were a pink and green pair of Tiffany & Co.’s Bird on a Rock brooches.

Styled by Warren Alfie Baker, Andrew Garfield exuded charm and confidence in a sharp black Fendi suit and white shirt with black buttons. His outfit was completed with a traditional bow tie, lace-up patent leather shoes, and, of course, an Omega watch.
Lenny Kravitz stole the show in his Saint Laurent outfit, which was a complete departure from the conventional black and white tuxedo. From the sharp boots, the flowy blouse, all the way to the pair of flared pants, Kravitz was everything rockstar-ready.
