Red Carpet Style: Are Black & White Tuxes Out?

02/22/2007 at 12:00 PM ET

Many would say that women get to have all the fun when dressing for the red carpet, but male actors aren’t shying away from showing their own bursts of individuality this award season. Just witness Djimon Hounsou at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where the Blood Diamond actor slipped a red shirt under his tailored suit for a look that was composed, a bit original and effortlessly elegant. Can we look forward to a similiar look from the Best Supporting Actor nominee at the Oscars? Other actors — like the polished Will Smith and Forest Whitaker — opted for a monochromatic look, pairing black shirts and ties together for a sleek and sexy look. Tell us: Do you like a colored shirt with a tux? Or should the men just stick with the basics?

i LOVE black on black…& this red shirt is great. black and white seems to plain and ordinary–all the guys end up looking the same pretty much.

Elda on

J – I agree with you.

They still mighty fly.

I’m glad the men are mixing it up some. They’re showing us ladies, “Hey, I can have some fashion sense too and get noticed.” I like both these looks. It brings more color, instead of the plain tuxes.

black goes with black and that is all i am saying!

I love colored shirts with tuxes. I’m not loving the red shirt, though.

Tammy on

LOVE the red! It really pops and looks great! I think the black on black is a nice change too! Guys don’t get to have as much fun or originality, so I like it when they try something a little different!
