Why These Were the 5 Best-Dressed Men at the 86th Annual Academy Awards

Some play it safe, but these stylish actors stood out on the Oscars red carpet.

Jason Sudeikis in Prada
Most men just look better in navy blue than in black—Sudeikis' slim-fit deep blue Prada suit is a perfect example. Pair that with some equally well-tailored scruff and you have the makings of a major red-carpet win.

We're not surprised that the long-locked Oscar winner went slightly off-book for the red carpet with a white dinner jacket, but he kept standout accessories like a red bow tie, crystal shirt studs, and that flowing ombré hair in check with perfect fit and proportions.

Leo makes looking sharp on the red carpet seem easy—no doubt he's gotten comfortable wearing Armani time and time again. Kudos for leaving the bottom button undone.

Kevin Spacey in Burberry
Like Frank Underwood, the brazen Veep he plays on House of Cards, Spacey risks a bold move here—and it totally pays off. His pants may be a little on the long side, but this bold blue Burberry suit is a welcome reprieve from the traditional black tie.

When it comes to wearing a classic black tux, the difference between standing out and blending in comes down to fit. Ejiofor's pants break perfectly over his Christian Louboutin shoes, and the fly front shirt placket creates a clean canvas for his crisp bow tie.
