The Oscars: Biggest Night in Showbiz

The perennial entertainment industry award ceremonies usually culminate with the best-known awards show—the Oscars. Some of the world’s biggest stars show up on the red carpet on Oscars night, dressed to-the-nines. Traditionally, men’s formalwear such as a tuxedo, was the only way to dress for the Oscars, which is still often seen on the stars even after 88 years of the Oscars. When you’re invited to attend the Oscars, only a tuxedo will do. The Oscars as well as other award shows continue the tux tradition, as evidenced at the most recent Oscars ceremony saw an array of stylish men’s designer formalwear, including Jared Leto looking retro-western-chic in Gucci, and Chris Rock in Burberry. And Michael Fassbender sure knows how to rock a tux.

The Oscars have always been decidedly for grownups, and younger generations want in on the awards action with celebrities they know and admire. That’s what the Teen Choice Awards are all about, since this show is all about celebrating youth and the entertainment stars that young people worship. The Teen Choice Awards is obviously less formal than some other more prestigious industry award events, and the fashion on this red carpet is more about self-expression and attitude, traits teenagers understand. From young cool-guy actor Gregg Sulkin in a simple, modern ensemble of pants, t-shirt and jacket to One Direction to TV heartthrob John Stamos in casual jeans and shirt. The overall vibe of men’s fashion on the Teen Choice Awards red carpet is stylish yet comfortable, because the TCAs are always known for a good time.
