Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the men who have taken to the red carpet on this very quiet week.

Richard Madden: The ‘Game of Thrones’ actor, who is Prince Charming to Lily James’ Cinderella, joined his co-star on the red carpet for the LA premiere on Sunday (March 1). He wore Dolce & Gabbana with fine details that make this tuxedo suit the flawless epitome of black-tie elegance, but it’s the blue eyes that really draw you in.

Dev Patel: The British actor attended ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Tuesday (March 3) in New York City. I love Dev for never opting for the classic, expected look. Like David Oyelowo, Dev is not afraid of colour or experimenting with different fabrications. On this occasion he wore a Salvatore Ferragamo tan corduroy notched-lapel suit, which on paper doesn’t appeal but in real life exemplifies the essence of sartorial dressing. This look did make me chuckle as it reminded me of the ‘Sex And The City’ episode where Steve asks Miranda, “What’s wrong with corduroy?” to which she replies, “I don’t have enough time to tell you what’s wrong with corduroy.” Dev proves that statement wrong.

Chloe Sevigny In Louis Vuitton – ‘Bloodline’ Series Premiere

Chloe Sevigny In Louis Vuitton - 'Bloodline' Series Premiere

Chloe Sevigny attended the ‘Bloodline’ New York series premiere held at the SVA Theatre on Tuesday (March 3) in New York City.

The indie actress, who has been M.I.A. from the red carpet for a while, makes a return in Louis Vuitton.

I knew this Spring 2015 collection would appeal to Chloe as she’s never been afraid of complex prints and patterns, plus she’s very much a fan of the boots with her red carpet looks, so LV was a match made in fashion heaven – as apparently the prerequisite for wearing an LV look is to wear the footwear too.

What I love most about this look is how it commands your attention, possessing a girlish charm with vivacious, dramatic spirit.

On this rare occasion, I love the boots.

Which Was Your Favourite Julianne Moore Awards Season Look?

Which Was Your Favourite Julianne Moore Awards Season Look

Julianne Moore may have swept the board winning Best Actress awards for ‘Still Alice’, but did she really clean up in the style stakes?

I would say yes she did.

Looking back I was delighted to learn that her love for black was mostly confined to events surrounding awards season, with the only notable step onto the dark side in Saint Laurent at the Critics’ Choice Awards.

Her go-to designer was Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Couture when I was sure it would’ve been Tom Ford, but this was the right choice as Julianne’s finest moments were both in Givenchy.

Those looks were my joint favourites. I couldn’t pick a favourite of the two as I love the drama of the Golden Globes gown and the colour of the SAG Awards.

As breathtaking as the design of her Chanel Couture Oscar gown was, the colour washed her out completely, ending an amazing run with a damp squib.

Blanca Suarez In Zuhair Murad – Fotogramas Awards

Blanca Suarez In Zuhair Murad - Fotogramas Awards

Blanca Suarez attended the Fotogramas Awards ceremony held at Joy Eslava on Monday (March 2) in Madrid, Spain.

The actress wore a Zuhair Murad black sheer gown featuring an explosion of colourful floral embroidery that put a spring into this elegant gown’s step.

I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t think this dress was Valentino at first as it possesses the dainty ladylike qualities you don’t always associate with Zuhair Murad, who usually comes to mind upon sight of an overtly sexy gown that the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio adore.

Confidently displaying an air of charisma and grace, this look was one of my favourites from this event, not only for the colours and Blanca’s poise but also for her styling.

I’m sure you’ll agree this look is much improved over her Film Independent Spirit Awards effort.

Chanel’s Spring 2015 ‘3 Girls, 3 Bags’ Campaign

Following the announcement back in January, Chanel’s Spring 2015 handbag campaign, ‘3 Girls, 3 Bags’, has finally been released.

The black-and-white campaign, which was photographed by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, features American actress Kristen Stewart, French actress Vanessa Paradis and model Alice Dellal, all of whom have posed for Chanel in the past.

Vanessa Paradis posed naked for Karl wearing only a Chanel pearl necklace and the new ‘Girl’ Chanel handbag inspired by the emblematic jacket of the house, which will no doubt become an instant classic.

Chanel’s two iconic handbags are represented by two of its newest ambassadors, Alice Dellal and Kristen Stewart.

Alice continues to be the face of the ‘Boy’ bag, which is particularly suited to her tougher, edgy, androgynous style, while Kristen lends her face to one of the French label’s enduring classics, the quilted ‘11.12’ handbag, looking rather smart yet older than her tender years in this campaign.
