On Sunday 9 February, Hollywood will roll out the red carpet for the 92nd Academy Awards.

The Oscars is the perfect occasion for stars such as Cynthia Erivo, Charlize Theron and Renée Zellweger – who are all Best Actress nominees – to celebrate their sartorial prowess and the creative talent of the world’s most renowned makeup artists, fashion houses, and stylists.

However, while the majority of the fashion attention tends to be directed towards women on the night, it’s worth noting that the entertainment industry’s leading men have also shown their love of fashion at the Oscars over the years.
