Best Dressed: Golden Globes 2016

The 2016 Golden Globes was not only about honoring the great performances of those in the entertainment industry, it was also about the fashion. While the women glided down the red carpet in their dazzling evening gowns, the gentlemen looked as dapper than ever. Structured, timeless tuxedos were in full effect, but many male celebrities decided to go the unconventional route this year.

In this list, we will take a look at the 5 best dressed men at this year’s Golden Globes, from the classic suits to the quirky, revamped ensembles.

1. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson fused classic menswear staples with a few modern design elements to create a stylish and unique suit that made him stand out in a sea of typical, black tuxedos. The Ballers executive producer and actor ditched the standard suit jacket for a burgundy, velvet jacket and black tuxedo pants. The look gets even better when you glance down at his trendy footwear and notice he’s donning black, velvet slip-on shoes. The look is very Hugh Hefner circa 1990, and Johnson pulls it off effortlessly.

2. Ryan Gosling
It’s not easy to stunt on someone as stylish and handsome as Brad Pitt but that’s exactly what Gosling did last night on stage in an incredible ensemble. Gosling channeled old Hollywood glamour in outstanding fashion by donning a super fly off white shawl collar dinner jacket. The rest of the look’s accoutrements were simple and elegant, letting the jacket shine. Few men can pull off the retro vibe as well as Gosling and this was just more proof as to why Gosling is consistently one of the best dressed men in Hollywood.

3. Michael B. Jordan
He may have gotten snubbed during co-star Sylvester Stallone’s acceptance speech, but Creed actor Michael B. Jordan definitely wasn’t an afterthought on the red carpet. Jordan sported a black tuxedo that was tailored to perfection. The slim-fit tux is a revamped take on this classic menswear ensemble, and the form-fitting silhouette has become more and more popular on the red carpet. Jordan went the traditional route by wearing a black bow tie on top of his crisp, white dress shirt. The cuffs of his shirt hit right above the wrist to expose his dapper timepiece. The hem of his pants stopped right below the ankle to expose a pair of shiny, black dress shoes.

4. Leonardo DiCaprio
Not only did Leonardo DiCaprio win big when he took home the Best Actor in a Motion Picture award for his performance in The Revenant, but he was also a winner on the red carpet. The actor kept things simple in a tailored, two-button, black suit with matching black bow tie; and his shiny, patent leather shoes set off the entire dapper look.

5. Jon Hamm
Like his stylish alter-ego Don Draper, Hamm was making it look easy last night. The ease and cool with which Hamm crushed his sharp 3-piece D&G tuxedo was breathtaking. Obviously being incredibly handsome to begin with sure helps matters, but you can't discount how important the razor sharp fit was in making his overall presence look as dapper as his tv namesake. That he decided to embrace the full look with the vest goes to show you that confidence comes naturally when wearing such an impeccable look. The classic bowtie finish was the perfect cherry on top.

6. Chris Evans
Captain America can wear the shit out of a tux that's for sure. Rocking an extremely well tailored navy shawl collar stunner, Evans proved that sometimes more is more, even if you've got an athletic frame. The retro-style shawl collar combined with the thoroughly modern navy hue was everything that's rigth in modern, fashionable formalwear, it respects the past while acknowledging today's current trends.

7. Wiz Khalifa
Rapper Wiz Khalifa went the unconventional route with his ensemble, and it definitely had heads turning. Khalifa crushed the status quo by showing up in a Thom Browne suit and Gucci horse-bit loafers that stole the show. The slim-fit silhouette is hard to pull off, but Wiz rocks this look on the daily. The cropped hem of his pants confirms the days of the Golden Globes being a stuffy, prim and proper event are over.
