The Oscars are Sunday night at 7/6c on ABC, but the parties have already begun! Vanity Fair hosted two big soirees last night in Hollwood, each to celebrate one of the nominees for Best Picture—and also support good causes! The cast of Les Miserables—InStyle cover girl Amanda Seyfried (in Dior), Man of Style Eddie Redmayne, and nominee Anne Hathaway, who were all joined by Isla Fisher, wife of castmate Sacha Baron Cohen—celebrated together to support the Los Angeles Fund for Public Education. Meanwhile the cast of Silver Linings Playbook, including nominees Jennifer Lawrence (in Roland Mouret) and Bradley Cooper, attended a party that raised funds for The Glenholme School, a boarding school for children with special needs.

InStyle’s Man of Style, Eddie Redmayne, looked every bit the part at the National Board of Review Awards in New York last night, when he joined his Les Miserables cast members on stage to accept the Best Ensemble Award dressed in an impeccably tailored suit by Burberry. The fashion choice was fitting for the dapper 31-year-old Brit, as he is currently the face of the British company and sat front row at the label’s fashion show last year. “When I go to a premiere, I quite like putting on a suit,” Redmayne told InStyle for our December issue. “I’m into Alexander McQueen and Burberry. Something that fits well makes me feel stronger, especially on the red carpet.” We can’t wait to see what this dashing gent wears all awards season!

Swoon! British actor Eddie Redmayne first turned heads with his role opposite Michelle Williams in 2011′s My Week with Marilyn, and the brooding star turns 31 today! His latest turn as young rebel lover Marius Pontmercy in Les Miserables proved to be one of the most powerful vocal performances in the entire film. He was InStyle’s Man of Style for December, and (no surprise here) received rave reviews from the ladies he’s worked with. “Eddie lives at the crossroads of crazy-smart and passionate,” his Les Mis co-star Anne Hathaway says. “He’s one of the warmest human beings I’ve had the luck to know. Plus, he’s a nerd, which I think is awesome.” Happy birthday, Eddie!

The Broadway-to-big screen movie Les Miserables is capturing the hearts of many theatergoers after its Christmas opening ($19 million and counting!). One reason why? An all-star cast that includes Eddie Redmayne, the 30-year-old Brit who plays student rebel Marius Pontmercy, the character who falls for Cosette (Amanda Seyfried). Co-star Anne Hathaway, who plays Cosette’s late mother Fantine, can understand the appeal. “Eddie lives at the crossroads of crazy-smart and passionate,” she told InStyle of the actor. “He’s one of the warmest human beings I’ve had the luck to know. Plus, he’s a nerd, which I think is awesome.” It is, isn’t it?

He started singing in public at Eton College—a British boarding school where he was classmates with Prince William—as a choirboy. Now as student rebel Marius Pontmercy in the new film adaptation of the classic musical Les Misérables, Eddie Redmayne is hitting his notes alongside Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, and Amanda Seyfried. “During rehearsal, these two titans with brilliant voices, Hugh and Russell, are singing,” the 30-year-old told us. “And it’s like a shiver on the back of your neck.” Funny—that’s just how we feel whenever we see this Brit on the big screen.
