Forget having a glammed-out gal on your arm. The best accessory for men at the Oscars this year is their facial hair.
Stars like George Clooney, Ben Affleck, and Bradley Cooper have all shown up on the red carpet rocking some serious scruff.
And they're not alone. Best Actor nominee Hugh Jackman, Jason Clarke from "Zero Dark Thirty," and last year's Best Actor winner Jean Dujardin have all seemed to have gotten the memo to follow suit on this year's beard trend.
Should stars be shaven clean or is a five-o-clock shadow no big deal on the red carpet?
