Even Ryan Seacrest‘s sneakers wore cummerbunds to the Oscars.

The “E! Live From the Pink Carpet” host stepped out for the duration of New York Style Week in Giuseppe Zanotti patent leather loafers wrapped in mini pleated sashes ($795 at SaksFifthAvenue.com).

“I appeared at all the sneakers that I had worn over the last 15 a long time, and I realized that they just about all seem the identical,” he explained to The Write-up after viewing his mate Naeem Khan’s runway display. “What can you do with a man’s shoe? Alter the laces to a cummerbund — it is the noticeable decision.”

“It was a risk,” he said. “The verdict is not in still.”

Seacrest rendered his own decision on who appeared awesome at the ceremony. “I believed Renée Zellweger appeared remarkable. Brie Larson was great. Regina King is often one particular of my favorites. I believed Rami Malek appeared excellent in the black double-breasted,” he said. “For me, it was one particular of the excellent a long time of lighter, softer shades like pinks and whites. I believed it was seriously timeless and exquisite.”

Even though lots of actresses shell out an total day primping for the Academy Awards, Seacrest said it will take him just 40 minutes. “That’s drying my hair, putting on the pomade, buttoning the shirt and putting the cufflinks in.”

What about slipping into the cummerbund sneakers? Seconds.
