Guys of the 2013 Oscars

A few brave souls broke with black tux tradition this year, so let's start a red carpet recap with them.

Jamie Foxx and Daniel Day-Lewis work colored tuxes with contrasting black lapels. Both wore black bow ties, but Jamie also wore a black shirt.

Robert Downey Jr. opted for a black shirt and Samuel L. Jackson went for a ruby velvet jacket and brown tux pants. Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans had satin lapels, one with a bow tie and the other a necktie.

Satin lapels on both guys here, but that's where the similarities end. Robert went unconventional with a black shirt and long tie. He also added flair with a graphic pocket square. Jeremy was much more traditional.
Paco Delgado and also chose black shirts under their tuxes.
A few guys broke with bow tie/tux convention and opted for neckties. Here, Richard Gere, Chris Evans, Jean Dujardin, and Chris Pine go long.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jeremy Renner both went for tiny bow ties and were among the handful of guys who added anything to their lapel. Joseph added a pink flower pin and Jeremy added a white pocket square. Notice Joseph's black buttons on his shirt? 

Bradley Cooper and Dwight Henry both went for a 3-piece look. Bradley's is more fitted, while Dwight's is roomier. Bradley also had black buttons to add an extra accent to his look.

Which guy had your favorite 2013 Oscars red carpet style?

I actually loved Robert Downey Jr.'s "all black everything" look when he presented the Oscar on stage.
