Red Carpet Fashion Evolution – The 90th Academy Awards

Everyone, from the common man to the fashionistas, looks forward to the trendsetting Red Carpet fashion at the Oscars. As always, we saw a varied range of men’s outfits from different styles and cuts of suits to a variety of textures combined with embroidery. To mark the celebration of one of the most prestigious award ceremonies, let’s take a look at the fashion evolution that took place over a span of five years, that is from 2013 to 2018 at The Academy Awards.


Tuxedos, the ultimate red carpet classic, shone excessively on the 2013 Oscars red carpet. Actors Eddie Redmayne, Chris Evans and Chris Pine sported their rendition of classy black and white Tuxedo and finished the look with a stunning pair of shoes and perfect ties and bow ties.

We loved Ansel Elgort’s bold royal blue suit and a neat black bow tie,  Michael Strahan’s maroon tux underlined with black trim and singer turned actor Jared Leto adding a twist to his tuxedo by wearing a white blazer, black trousers and a red velvet bow tie.

Also, The Hulk protagonist Mark Ruffalo in his midnight blue blazer and Kevin Hart in his all-black ensemble with embellished outlines.
