Fashion from The 67th Directors Guild Awards

dgaThe 67th Directors Guild of America Awards ceremony was held on February 7, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles. The awards recognize outstanding directorial achievement in television, films, and documentaries.

Award categories included feature films, dramatic series, comedy series, movies for television and mini-series, variety/talk/news/sports, reality programs, children’s programs, commercials and documentaries. In the past, winning directors in the feature film categories have often gone on to win Oscars.

Winner of the Night

The big winner of the night was Director Alejandro González Iñárritu, who won in the feature film category for the film Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). Iñárritu beat out strong competitors such as Clint Eastwood, who directed the film American Sniper, and Richard Linklater, who directed the film Boyhood. Iñárritu accepted his award with grace and fashion flair, combining an elegant black tuxedo with a black neck scarf for a dash of bohemian insouciance. You, too, can replicate his look with a classic black tux – though the scarf is optional!

Fashion Rebels

DGA President Paris Barclay was a fashion-rebel at the awards. His white jacket with black lapels was striking, but also against the “rules.” His ensemble also included a black bow tie, white tuxedo shirt, black pocket handkerchief, and black tuxedo trousers. You can get this same look wearing a white tuxedo with black lapels. Presenter Bill Murray also bucked the norms with his mix-and-match fashion ensemble. He wore a brown jacket over a white shirt and gray plaid vest. A brown bow tie and cream-colored slacks completed his look. You can also pair a patterned tuxedo vest with a contrasting suit or tux to replicate Murray’s look. Director and Awards Presenter Alfonso Cuaron attended the evening’s festivities in an elegant black tuxedo paired with a black tuxedo shirt, and a black tie. You can also get this sharp, black on black look with a black tuxedo shirt. Children’s category winner Jonathan Judge also opted for a unique look with a wine-colored tux jacket against a white tuxedo shirt, black bow tie and blue-and-wine patterned pocket handkerchief. Whether your tastes run to the novel and daring, like some of these Hollywood icons, or to the tried and true, there is always something to be gained from following celebrity fashion. What did you think of these formal men's looks?
