Red Carpet Report: Oscars 2015

21:30:00

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.

Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen
Best Actor - The Theory of Everything. 
His inky blue tuxedo is sharp and sophisticated. He wore the same colour in a velvet Armani suit at the BAFTAs - maybe this is his lucky colour?

Neil Patrick Harris in Brunello Cucinelli
Pictured here with his husband David Burtka.
The ceremony host had no less than 5 costume changes during the night but this soft grey, shawl neck suit is perfect for Spring.

Benedict Cumberbatch 
Nominated for Best Actor - The Imitation Game
Showing how an Englishman does black tie, Cumberbatch goes all 007 in a white tux jacket.

David Oyelowo in Dolce & Gabbana
The Selma actor took the red carpet theme to the Nth degree with this marsala 3 piece tuxedo

Jared Leto in Givenchy
Best Supporting Actor 2014
The Oscar messiah makes another statement with this lilac suit.

The Oscars is the pinnacle of the award season but watch out for more red carpet coverage from the Emmys and Cannes Film Festival later in the year.

I make no ownership claims to these images.
