The 87th Academy Awards will air Sunday February 22, capping off a whirlwind award season. This years Oscar nominees for Best Actor are our Style Inspiration. Eddie Redmayne, Michael Keaton, Bradley Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch and Steve Carrell may have in common the talent to carry their characters so convincingly onscreen but off screen, their styles couldn’t be more different. Eddie Redmayne took the leap from fronting fashion campaigns for Burberry to portraying genius physicist Stephen Hawkin and playing with different tones and textures on and off the red carpet. Steve Carrell, most notable for his comedic role in “The Office” and “40 Year old virgin” takes a more serious turn in Foxcatcher and his style can be categorized as relaxed dad. Bradley Cooper and Benedict Cumberbatch seem to be able to go from casual to black tie seamlessly and Michael Keaton, promoting his role in “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” showcased a refined style that went from casual to formal without trying too hard and he was Batman, enough said.
Whether your style skews more British dandy like Benedict Cumberbatch, fun with textures and colors like Eddie Redmayne or relaxed Steve Carrell, these leading men can provide you some style inspiration.
