Normally when it comes to red carpet fashion, all eyes are on the leading (and supporting!) ladies. Post–awards show, the Internet is abuzz with “What was she thinking?” and “Oh my, she really nailed it.” But now it’s time to pay the men of the Emmy Awards the respect they so deserve. In old-school formal outfits, a whole lot of blue, and some fresh takes on traditional tuxes, these guys dressed to impress. But who came out on top?

Emmys Best-Dressed Men

GQ cast its vote in a recent articleSeth Meyers in navy Valentino (pictured above) hit it out of the park – not only with his dapper tux and bow tie, but with his monologues too. Bryan Cranston in Ralph Lauren Black Label proved that when you channel Clark Gable, you win a boatload of Emmys.

And then there was Ryan Sweeting in a striking blue tuxedo jacket. “We really expected the night’s A-list TV actors to make bolder moves on the red carpet,” said Matt Sebra of GQ. “Not the tennis pro husband of that blond girl from the Big Bang Theory. But the actors didn’t, Sweeting did, and that’s why he makes the list.” (Hey Ryan, can I borrow your jacket? I promise I’ll give it back.)

Lupita Nyong’o. She’s the Oscar-nominated breakout star of the critically acclaimed movie 12 Years a Slave. But before the groundbreaking flick hit theaters, odds are you probably hadn’t heard of her. And now? All of America is tuning in to see what she’ll be wearing on the red carpet.

From her bright red Ralph Lauren caped confection at the Golden Globes to her bandeau Calvin Klein dress at the Critics’ Choice Awards, she’s topped just about every best-dressed list this awards season – not to mention been named one of Vogue’s top ten rising style stars. So while we don’t know what the Oscar envelope will hold come March, my money’s on Lupita winning best-dressed. Hands down.
