‘David Bowie Is’ Exhibition Private Viewing Menswear Red Carpet Round Up

‘David Bowie Is’ Exhibition Private Viewing Red Carpet Round Up Menswear

The Victoria & Albert Museum, in partnership with Gucci and Sennheiser, attracted various celebrities with its ‘David Bowie Is’ exhibition on Wednesday. We’ve seen the ladies, including the fabulous Tilda Swinton, so now here is a look at all the handsome guys who attended the event.

Douglas Booth: The English actor arrived in a Gucci Heritage navy peak-lapel suit. He paired the suit with a classic white dress shirt. The suit looked fantastic and fit perfectly. Douglas’ shoes were a little wilder: he sported studded black leather horsebit loafers. The choice of shoes may not be favoured with such a classic suit, but since it was an exhibition devoted to David Bowie, it seems appropriate.

Tara Ferry: In the brightest suit of the four, Tara donned a Gucci Spring 2013 sapphire-dyed three-piece suit. His twill suit also featured a printed lining and buttons of different colours. He matched his suit with a white shirt with metal details, a blue polka-dot silk tie, and a white leather belt.

The most noticeable part of this outfit is those shoes: he coordinated his shoes with his buttons. Tara is wearing one black leather horsebit loafer and one white loafer. That is just too much for me. He should have stuck with the white ones – they are more David Bowie-esqe.

Mr. Hudson: The English singer sported an eye-catching Gucci ink jersey double-breasted suit from the Spring 2013 collection. It’s very similar (colourwise) to the suit worn by Ko Chen-Tung in Beijing. Mr. Hudson styled his suit with a black crewneck T-shirt and black leather brogue lace-up shoes. His suit fit just the way it should and he styled it well.

Nick Grimshaw: Not only did Nick show off his pink hair colour, he wore an awesome Gucci Spring light-blue double-breasted suit. It’s definitely a suit I could see David Bowie wearing. Under the well-tailored suit, Nick opted to follow the spring floral trend with a Resort 2013 cotton shirt. He finished it all off with a pair of Converse shoes. This was my favourite look because it screams “David Bowie”, but I wish he had fastened the top button of his jacket.

The ‘David Bowie Is’ exhibition runs from 23 March – 11 August 2013 at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Go to for more info.

    Did Tara just try to out-Helena Bonham-Carter Helena Bonham Carter? I’m pretty sure people DON’T do that 😛
    Doug’s the best here, though I like the bright sapphire color…just not in a suit.

    Not loving any of the looks. Douglas – a bit too dull and boring for the event and those loafers do not belong with the look, they would’ve worked better with Mr.Hudson’s kind of suit. Tara and Nick look plain awful.
    If I had to choose one, I’d go with Mr.Hudson – his suit is original (without being ott) and he looks most polished and pulled together.
