‘Milk Men’: 2009 Oscars Red Carpet

You gotta love the effortless cool of Sean Penn. The Oscar winner’s anti-establishment chutzpah even saturated his choice of a awards show gear — a slick, all-black, anti-bow tie suit that looked more laid-back sexy than auditorium stuffy.

Even Milk castmates, Emile Hirsch, James Franco and Josh Brolin all escaped the penguin suit cliches and donned sharp, shiny black ties instead. While not everyone can have Mickey Rourke’s stylist, the cast of Milk were a definitie breath of no-tuxedo fresh air.
