Oscars 2019 - Our 5 Favourite Looks

Awards season is in full-swing and with it comes some serious sartorial sensations. This year's Academy Awards were a veritable feast for fashion-lovers everywhere. For us, at King & Allen, we're always hungry for the best of black tie and we were not disappointed! Here are our top five tailoring looks from the Oscars 2019.

5. Rami Malek


His portrayal of rock legend Freddie Mercury was nothing short of iconic and we were thrilled to see him pick up the best actor award. His look was total Hollywood class, with a clean, crisp tuxedo that was totally rhapsodic! 



4. Elsie Fisher


Relative newcomer, Elsie Fisher totally blew our minds with this ultra-cool three-piece suit from Thom Browne. The look is chic, cool and oh-so-elegant! 


3. Chris Evans


Everyone's favourite captain looked absolutely marvellous in this teal, velvet tuxedo jacket and black trousers. The whole look is meticulously put-together; modern but classic and bold yet understated.


2. Amy Poehler


Just when you thought it wasn't possible to love Amy Poehler any more, she knocks it out of the park with this stunning navy blue tailcoat. 


1. Billy Porter


The undisputed champion of chic at this year's Oscars was Billy Porter. The star of 'Pose' wore a stunning velvet ballgown with tuxedo jacket top, polished off with a perfect bow tie.
