LAST SLIDE

Which Oscar Men Dressed Best for Their Body Type?

View Slideshow Producer for 'The Artist,' Thomas Langmann (R), poses with actor Tom Cruise (L) in the press room at the 84th Annual Academy Awards held at the Hollywood & Highland Center on February 26, 2012 in Hollywood, California.

It's a well-known fact that many actors are much shorter in real life than they appear onscreen. Their cover is blown when they show up on a red carpet looking like gnomes next to their high-heeled female counterparts. Luckily, just as lady celebrities have stylists to spiff them up, male celebrities have helpers, too. Enter Alan Au, men's stylist and co-owner of Jimmy Au’s For Men 5’8” and Under, a Hollywood-based designer menswear store for gentlemen of petite stature. Alan and his father Jimmy have outfitted many big stars (fame-wise, at least) like Nathan Lane, Martin Sheen, and Mark Wahlberg for red carpets in the past. Although this year's Oscar nominees were an unusually tall bunch, Alan weighed in on the importance of dressing according to one's body type to look as statuesque as possible. See his commentary in our slideshow.
