Most dapper at the Oscars: Adam Rippon or Chadwick Boseman?

Some men at the Oscars broke out of the traditional tux mold, but none more than Adam Rippon and Chadwick Boseman.  Rippon, America's skating sweetheart, brought what the New York Times called "pure, unapologetic edge" to the red carpet. He sported a Jeremy Scott harness with an S&M-inspired Moschino look. Boseman's ensemble was so regal that viewers wanted to take a knee, and virtually every fashion publication dubbed him the king of the red carpet as well as Wakanda. Who was the most dapper?

But Twitter really did crown Boseman king. 👑

For his role in "Black Panther," costume designer Ruth E. Carter had very specific ideas about how to set T'Challa apart as the leader of Wakanda, and he clearly incorporated those ideas into his understated but majestic Oscar ensemble.

Vulture's Kyle Buchanan writes:

“I wanted him to have this look of a king and also a military leader,” said Carter. “He has that Wakandan kingly drape that moves around very elegantly....Everyone else around him is dressed in full-out colors and Afropunk, and it separates him and presents him as the king.”

Many, many people felt the way this fan did about Boseman's look.

It's hard to imagine a more regal presence on the red carpet than Boseman.
