Last night, the 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards took place in Santa Monica, California, as Hollywood awards season is officially in full swing. And, as always, the celebrities came out to honor each other while sporting their most fashionable digs.
Winners at last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards included Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma (Best Picture), Christian Bale (Best Actor for Vice), a tie for Best Actress between Glenn Close (The Wife) and Lady Gaga (A Star Is Born), Mahershala Ali (Best Supporting Actor for Green Book), The Favourite (Best Acting Ensemble), The Americans (Best Drama Series), The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Best Comedy Series) and Bojack Horseman (Best Animated Series).
It’s said the Critics’ Choice Awards are often incredibly accurate predictors of the year’s Academy Awards.
But awards aside, let’s take a look at the 12 best dressed men from the 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards (in no particular order):
1. Taye Diggs
As host of the 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards, Diggs opened the night with a cover of Cardi B’s “I Like It” and looked dapper as always on the red carpet in a midnight blue tux.
2. Milo Ventimiglia
This Is Us star Ventimiglia was one of the few men last night who sported the most classic red carpet look, a perfectly tailored black tuxedo. This one’s a Giorgio Armani.
3. Ricky Martin
The pop star-turned-actor also went classic at the Critics’ Choice Awards, sporting a black Prada tux.
4. Timothée Chalamet
He’s one of the most-talked-about actors right now, having appeared in Beautiful Boy alongside Steve Carell, and last night at the Critics’ Choice Awards he wore a colorful suit by Alexander McQueen and white sneakers.
5. Rami Malek
The Bohemian Rhapsody star opted for a pale gray custom Givenchy one-button suit, paired with a black bowtie and black shoes.
6. John Krasinski
This star and director of A Quiet Place — which won for Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie — sported a beard and a white-over-black blazer.
7. Dan Levy
The openly gay star of hilarious show Schitt’s Creek looked his most dapper in a patterned navy tux and large black frames.
8. Harry Shum Jr.
The Crazy Rich Asians star amped-up a regular tux by pairing it with a sparkling dinner jacket.
9. Darren Criss
Decked out in Giorgio Armani, the Assassination of Gianni Versace star looked cool and casual — but not too casual — on last night’s red carpet.
10. Shameik Moore
This rapper and star of one of the year’s most acclaimed animated films, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, was one of many guys at the Critics’ Choice Awards who decided not to sport a black tux, and he did so perfectly.
11. Cody Fern
He’s our 2018 TV crush, and this star of The Assassination of Gianni Versace and American Horror Story: Apocalypse sported a black jumpsuit by Yohji Yamamoto (with a cutout!) and the most-talked about men’s shoes of the moment, the Maison Margiela Tabi boot, which GQ claims “is going to take over in 2019.”
12. Billy Porter
He tends to opt for the dramatic, and he does it so well. The Pose star was sporting an outfit by Rinat Brodach complete with a gigantic bow belt.
13. John Legend
The crooner sported a dark brown suit paired with a turtleneck on last night’s red carpet.
14. Richard Madden
This star of Bodyguard looked super sexy in his double-breasted black velvet tux.
15. Stephan James
We’re newfound fames of James, who starred alongside Julia Roberts in the Amazon series Homecoming and in the film If Beale Street Could Talk. On the Critics’ Choice Awards red carpet last night, he sported an outside-the-box black and white Thom Browne tux, and paired it with boots.
