Smooth Moves: Beard Today, Gone Tomorrow

All good beards must come to an end—isn’t that how the saying goes?


We were pleasantly surprised to find that many men at the 2015 Academy Awards opted for smooth visages, and several of those clean-shaven fellows, such as Bradley Cooper and Ethan Hawke, typically sport a scruffier face.


There were still a handful of beards on the red carpet—Jared Leto, Chris Pine and Chris Evans are all still proudly wearing their facial hair—but the men who “cleaned up nice” far outweighed those who didn’t shave.


Hair, too, was mostly neat and combed away from the face with few exceptions, which was reminiscent of red-carpet days of yore. What wasn’t old-school were the number of colorful and textured tuxedos, which was a nice change of pace. Leto, Eddie Redmayne, Neil Patrick Harris and David Oyelowo all wore bold variations of the traditional tux.


While watching the red carpet arrivals, we tallied up this unofficial list of the night’s facial foliage.
