Unlike many other award show hosts who have a bajillion costume changes in the span of a few hours, Community star Donald Glover, who hosted the mtvU 2011 Woodie Awards last night, had ONE wardrobe change. Or more like a wardrobe alteration. He went from wearing a black suit with a pinkish shirt to losing the jacket for a gray striped skinny tie. It was perfectly in keeping with a MAJOR dude trend from last night because whippet-thin neck adornments were the silhouette. Check the army of skinny tie-wearing celebs, including New Cassettes, Chiddy from Chiddy Bang, and 3D Friends. Here's the thing, the Woodies are a mad casual affair (check Donald's long-day-in-the-lab rolled-up sleeves). Not like these fellas would walk up in there with dirty sweats, but jeans (clean ones) and untucked button-ups are totally acceptable. Meanwhile, a skinny tie (not a regular tie, which would just look douchey) in a messy knot is a genius way to dress up everything from scruffy hair and leather, to five o'clock shadows, while staying easy breezy. Unruly skinny ties 4 life!!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
