While live-tweeting last night's Oscars, I exclaimed how much I loved Jared Leto's floral boutonniere and how it needed to become a red carpet trend. Sure enough, as other fashion-forward dudes donning brooches and bouts started gracing the red carpet, it became apparent that, clearly, this was the year for the pocket square to take a backseat.
Jared Leto‘s floral bout paired perfectly with his light-colored custom Givenchy suit.
Before Common brought us to tears thanks to his epic performance/speech with John Legend, his velvet navy Prada dinner jacket accessorized with a stylish brooch caught our eye.
Kevin Hart added a touch of glam to his dapper white Lanvin tuxedo.
