The Top 10 Bow Tie Men at this Year's Oscars

10. Matthew McConaughey

Matthew always looks good at these events, and this time is no different. We love the red velvet bow tie paired with a black velvet tux!

9. Jordan Peele

Jordan Peele Oscars 2018 bow tie

One of the most unique writers/directors of our time, Jordan Peele has been the talk of the town since his film, Get Out, became a sleeper hit and critical success. Jordan made a splash on Oscars night with a classic black bow tie and white tux combo.

8. JR

JR Academy Awards bow tie

We have to confess we didn't know who JR was before Oscar night. But the French photograffeur has won a TED award and was nominated for Best Documentary Feature. And he clearly has style- rocking a bow tie that appears to have eyeballs on it!

7. Timothee Chalamet

This young actor has been the talk of the town after exhibiting some serious acting chops in Call Me By Your Name. He's clearly unafraid of taking risks, even in his fashion. White bow tie on white shirt on white tux?  We love it.

6. Darren Criss


Who doesn't love Darren Criss? 

A) He's a triple threat singer/actor/dancer

B) He knows how to dress for success and rock a great bow tie

C) He's a proud University of Michigan Alum. Go Blue!

5. Eloy Méndez

Eloy Méndez is an accomplished actor and producer, but more importantly, a fierce bow tie wearer. We love his look on Oscars night and love this pick with our fave Darren Criss. Go Blue!

4. Sufjan Stevens

Sufjan Stevens Oscars bow tie

We're not gonna lie- most of the musical performances at the Oscars were worse than the average Karaoke night at my neighborhood bar. But one performance, by Sufjan Stevens really stood out. It may have been due to his great voice, but more likely it was his super cool oversized bow tie!

3. Dolores Huerta

Who says bow ties are only for the guys? You may be wondering who Dolores Huerta is and you can read all about her here. She's a pretty amazing civil rights activist and founder of United Farm Workers. And she's also unafraid of fashion risks.  

2. Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer Bow Tie Oscars 2018

It takes quite a few cohunes to rock a red velvet suit the way Armie Hammer did, even if it is Giorgio Armani. But Armie looks great, and the simple black bow tie is justified by such a loud suit.

1. Adam Rippon

Adom Rippon Bow Tie Oscars 2018 Bondage

You can't mention the Oscars or bow tie bondage without paying homage to Olympian Adam Rippon. Not sure who his stylist is, but we want to hire him/her for our next bow tie line!
