The Departed star goes for comfort, padding around L.A. in cozy slippers. For a New York City premiere, though, the actor suits up (with proper shoes, of course).

The new dad is fit to be tied – via a Matthew McConaughey-worthy bandanna – for bumming around his New York 'hood, but is slick for a premiere.

The rapper is usually impeccably dressed – after all, he's won awards for his Sean John clothing line – but Diddy goes super-casual in a zip-up jacket and baggy jeans. He switches back to his signature polished look for a New York fashion event.

Low key and casual, the The Black Dahlia actor blends into the crowd (unlike girlfriend Scarlett Johansson). He switches things up on the red carpet at the Deauville Film Festival, looking sharp in a tailored suit.

A little bit country, a little bit sloppy (left)? The singer takes it easy off-duty, but rises to the occasion in an all-black ensemble for an event in New York. (Hmmm ... Perhaps fashionable wife Faith Hill had a say in his style?)

Is this the same guy? Almost incognito in khakis and a full beard, the Oscar winner sets himself apart from the crowd on the red carpet.

His wardrobe is a wonderland! Mayer keeps it casual with a low-key, hipster look – unless he's at the Grammy Awards, where Mayer ditched the hoodie for high-end fashion.

Does he ever really look bad? The always suave actor hangs out in L.A. in a basic black ensemble. For the Academy Awards, Clooney shows the right way to work a black tie look, in a classic Armani tuxedo.
