Oscar Night For The Other 50 Percent

-------


It’s been a long day (following a long night) of frantic Oscar fashion dissecting. We picked our favorite eighty-plus dresses from the red carpet, and went behind the scenes with Hollywood’s top stylists to get a look at the ladies getting ready. As one of the site’s resident menswear critics, it pains me a little to see the guys get such short shrift. Sure, the main function of men at black-tie events is to look like presentable foils for their dates, and not much more. But there’s plenty of effort that goes into those tuxes, too. Which is why I was glad to hear from Wendi and Nicole Ferreira, the power stylists who work with the likes of Channing Tatum and Chris Pine. Tatum stood out in particular last night—a custom-made Gucci tux will do that for a guy. The Ferreiras sent a few photos of the man getting ready. “As if dressing Channing Tatum in custom Gucci for the red carpet wasn’t enough,” they told me, “having the opportunity to collaborate with him on his vintage-inspired performance look took our experience to another level.”

The Greatest Timepiece Of All Time?

-------


Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen opened its new Madison Avenue flagship Wednesday night with a party celebrating Muhammad Ali, the namesake of the latest version of its Big Pilot’s Watch and subject of the exhibition, lensed by Howard Bingham, unveiled at the store. Evander Holyfield and Larry Holmes both turned up in Muhammad Ali Big Pilot watches designed to look like the legend’s red gloves, while Ali’s daughter Miya watched from the sidelines.

But the event was far from ring pros only. Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth and Karolina Kurkova were on hand, as was a very pregnant Adriana Lima, who cut the store’s ribbon with CEO Georges Kern. “This is my husband’s favorite watch brand,” said Lima, wearing a men’s watch style herself. “It makes me feel tough!” Lost star Matthew Fox had one, too, which he said suited his offscreen hobby: flying. “I’ve been waiting for one of these watches for a year and a half,” he said. “It tells UTC time, which as a pilot, is the time you use for everything you do.”

IWCs are an offscreen, rather than onscreen, indulgence for guests Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello, too. It’s hard to imagine a luxury watch figuring into their next film, Steven Soderbergh’s male stripper flick Magic Mike. “I wore head-to-toe gold paint,” said Manganiello of his costume, “accessorized with a fig leaf.” “I got very comfortable in G-strings,” Tatum added. Both prepped for their parts with extreme fitness regimes. So who’d win in the ring? “Well, I know who’d win in a dancing competition,” laughed Manganiello. “Channing, hands down.”
