Dudes Had a Soft Spot for Velvet at the Oscars

And Jason Momoa won the night with that matching velvet scrunchie

Velvet was the biggest trend on the red carpet at last night’s Oscars’ but it wasn’t with the ladies flaunting the sumptuous fabric. It was the men.

David Oyelowo (Black Panther) wore a custom dark green suit by Etro, the color chosen to honor his Nigerian heritage.

Stephan James (If Beale Street Could Talk) also rocked a three-piece by Etro but in a bright crimson shade of red.

And some actors settled on just velvet jackets paired with traditional trousers— Chris Evans (Captain America), light blue; Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), a subtle black; Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther), a navy smoking jacket; and Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) opted for a burgundy jacket with slate blue lapels.

But it was the aquatic superhero formerly known as Kahl Drogo, James Momoa who won the night. Momoa wore a Karl Lagerfeld clamshell-pink velvet tuxedo to celebrate the late iconic designer—and a matching Fendi scrunchie around his wrist. Later at the Vanity Fair after-party, Momoa arrived shirtless in a Fendi velvet smoking jacket and black trousers. And that scrunchie? It was put to good use—he used it to secure his famous locks in a man bun.
