It's rare that a Hollywood male crowd is as well dressed as a female one, but that's what happened when Dior Homme threw a soiree for its designer/creative director Kris Van Assche.

Sure, Hollywood's male celebs — actors, musicians and sports stars — clean up nicely and dress well on the red carpet. The pressure there for guys increases all the time. But a man in a great designer suit — often European, with an amazing, tailored, super-slim, flattering cut — is becoming a more common occurrence in the town best known for laid-back jeans and T-shirts. But outside of an awards show, like say, last Sunday's Emmy Awards, we've never seen a better-dressed male crowd than at Thursday night's Dior Homme cocktail party at the Chateau Marmont Penthouse for its designer/creative director Kris Van Assche.

But then again, Dior Homme (once famously designed by now-Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane) is the creme de la creme when it comes to menswear, from suits to shirts to shoes. Both Robert Pattinson and Jude Law have been faces of the brand's ads, and Orlando Bloom, James Marsden and John Legend are clearly fans and constant wearers (as are David Beckham and Jason Bateman).

Bloom, Marsden and Legend all turned out to greet Van Assche, as did Miles Teller, Jeremy Irvine (star of Roland Emmerich's new movie, Stonewall), ASAP Rocky (in a cool zippered jacket and pants ensemble), Anton Yelchin and director Michael Polish, who donned Dior Homme. Polish arrived with wife and actress Kate Bosworth, who donned a divine Dior peplum tuxedo dress.

Major Hollywood stylists who often dress guys — Brad Goreski, Jeanne Yang and Petra Flannery — also joined the crowd on the balcony of the Chateau's sixth-floor penthouse, it being too warm an evening for men in suits and shirts to be indoors, after all.

Other stylish dudes showed up as well: Josh Hutcherson, Jason Derulo and Finn Wittrock, the rising star of last season's American Horror Story, all turned out to sip champagne and demonstrate their dedication to style on a Thursday night.

For once, the lads were dressed much better than the ladies — and outnumbered them as well. And we didn't mind one bit.
