Red Carpet Report: Oscars 201521:30:00
So the 87th Academy Awards have been and gone with Eddie Redmayne, Julianne Moore, Patricia Arquette, J.K. Simmons and Birdman walking away with the main awards.
The ceremony was hosted by showbiz Swiss-Army knife Neil Patrick Harris (thank god How I Met Your Mother is over) and saw performances from the Lady Gaga and Best Song Winners John Legend & Common.
One of the big issues on the red carpet was Reese Witherspoon's (Best Actress nominee for Wild) campaign #AskHerMore which encourage the presenters and paparazzi to vary their commentary from the usual "Who are you wearing?" superficiality.
Well, call me superficial but I like to know who is wearing what. The actors have more than enough opportunity to voice their opinions on their hot topics so let the rest of us live vicariously and pretend we are in the know on the night's best dressed.
Anyway, politics aside, the red carpet saw some fantastic suiting that pushed the boundaries of black tie.
Here are some of my favourite looks that broke away from the usual black tuxedo.
The Oscar messiah makes another statement with this lilac suit.
