Velvet tuxedos and sparkling suits were go-to's for man gents at the biggest night in Hollywood.

Actor Eddie Redmayne added a sharp velvet jacket to his classic suit while actor "Batman vs. Superman" hunk Henry Cavill went full-out and donned a complete velvet tuxedo. The boys of "Spectre!" Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes dominated the red carpet in black and emerald green smoking velvet jackets.

The red carpet didn't had plenty of sparkle too! Kevin Hart rocked an all-black suit from Dolce & Gabbana with crystal piping -- and let's not forget about the ladies. While we call this one of the biggest fashion fails from the night, we simply cannot ignore costume designer Sandy Powell's metallic power suit.

See all the looks below:
