Ok. I know that most of the females who strolled down the Red Carpet at the Golden Globes 2012 have been endlessly judged on their glittering gowns, but probably not as much attention has been directed toward the best and worst dressed men. Since I couldn’t pick just one “best” and one “worst” for the evening, I managed to narrow it down to two in each category.
I thought that Ricky Gervias’s tuxedo was a little abrasive, just like his hosting monologue. Although it is true that brown and black can be sheik together, not so much in this case. The color vacillated between a dull brown and a sort of burgundy under the stage lights and his unbuttoned black shirt just blended into the dark lapels of his tux. His was not a look not really becoming of someone who has not been afraid to go out on a limb.
To discuss the totally opposite end of the spectrum was the arrival of Leonardo DiCaprio. With his slicked back hair, neatly trimmed goatee, and classically elegant black tuxedo he exemplified Webster’s definition of “flawless” and was definitely a GQ look, if I have ever seen one.
Another guy who I thought really missed the mark when it came to selecting that “just right” outfit for The Golden Globes was Joseph Gordon. With his trim figure, the form-fitting tuxedo and multi-colored bow tie made a handsome guy look like a bad date from “The Dating Game” or like he was an escapee from “Pee Wee’s Fun House”. Sorry for the harshness guy, but whoever helped you pick out that outfit was not a really good friend. And FYI, Nordstrom actually carries a solid amount of classy bow ties.

The man who absolutely stole the show, as far as unique fashion style, has to be Johnny Depp. His “less than traditional” half shawl lapel and half standard cut lapel tuxedo jacket was perfectly accented by his open collar white shirt. Johnny’s vest was a trendy pop of green, in a sea of dark tuxes and suits. Also, he completed his unique style with a long necklace, rings and an antique-looking pocket watch, whose chain hung elegantly below his jacket. A look that is only befitting of what we expect from Johnny Depp.
