SAG Awards: the evolution of the male red carpet

On Sunday, January 27th, the Screen Actors Guild awards were awarded, granted by the Actors Guild, and it is worth noting that men are increasingly interested in taking risks when it comes to dressing up. For many years black was the only option, and for some time some opted for other colors and, above all, for different cuts and styles. This is a trend that can be seen most of all in the revelation actors. In this silver carpet, actors like Bradley Cooper used the traditional black tuxedo without taking any risks. Instead, it seems that those who are just becoming famous, or who have only a few years of career, a younger generation, in any case, take risks when dressing for the silver carpet of the SAG Awards. Here we show you the risks that the six fashionable actors took this time and we tell you how you can copy them.

Rami Malek

The winner of the Best Actor statuette in a leading role for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody wore a Dior tuxedo. The outfit is black from head to toe, combining the suit with a black shirt. The risks here are several. First, he is wearing a suit that closes on the right side with a single button, something that is not customary in the gala costumes, but also compensates for the lack of a tie, as it is not necessary with the cut of this suit. Besides, the actor was wearing black sneakers that do not take away the elegance of the attire because they balance with the color of the suit.

Michael B. Jordan

Michael B. Jordan is the villain of the year. Together with his setmates in Black Panther, he won the Best Cast award. Besides being the fashionable villain, he was wearing the stylish male accessory: the harness. We had already seen it in Timothée Chalamet, and now we see this more floral and less shiny design in Michael B. Jordan. This accessory is the creation of Louis Vuitton, and this is the brand that is putting it in trend. In addition to the harness, which is where you look at the actor's most significant risk in his clothes, he is wearing a blue platinum black suit and three buttons on the left side, more centered than Rami Malek's suit. Nor does he wear a tie, as menswear has evolved to the point of creating other accessories such as the harness to denote elegance.

Timothée Chalamet

We met him at last year's hits Call Me By Your Name and Lady Bird. He is now in vogue for Beautiful Boy and was nominated for his role in this film for Best Supporting Actor. Although he did not take the award, Timothée Chalamet did make all the looks again. The young actor is, without a doubt, the one who has taken the most risks in this season of prizes. For him, we knew the harness of Louis Vuitton, and now it brings us a unique combination: leather pants with a patterned shirt. If you are low risk, you can wear a traditional suit and accompany it with a new accessory like the harness, but if you like risk and do not fear criticism, you can imitate Timothy Chalamet. He also does not wear a tie, because attention is placed on his pants and shirt. In this case, to avoid being overloaded, wear the suit jacket open. This is a design by Celine.

Mahershala Ali

The winner of the award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Green Book wore this design by Ermenegildo Zegna XXX. He has also been playing for several years for his roles in the award-winning Moonlight, House of Cards and now in the new season of True Detective. It is also one of the riskiest in color and texture. It is almost the only one on our list to wear a bowtie. He opted for this red wine suit whose jacket has a somewhat reptilian texture and combined it with a white shirt and bow tie, a great choice. He accompanied his suit with Bruno Magli loafers without stockings.

He also wears a bowtie and also does not wear socks. Darren Criss won the award for Best Supporting Actor in a television series for his role in The Assassination of Gianni Versace and showed at the gala that not only women can shine on the silver carpet. He wore an Armani design composed of black pants polished to the ankle, white shirt, black bowtie and a plated jacket that stole the show. The jacket also has a geometric pattern that makes it very sober while shining with color. The cut is classic with a button in the center, as the risk is in the texture and color.

Chadwick Boseman

Finally, we have this one, the Black Panther. As we said, he won with his teammates the award for Best Cast. Lucme for this gala a design of Ermenegildo Zedna XXX that consisted of trousers, shoes and black jacket accompanied by a spectacular coat of earth colors and golden shades with leaf prints and a white floral brooch. He did not wear a tie either, we see that this accessory is finally going out of fashion, but a very sober black turtleneck that did not take away the jacket's prominence.
