Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 2 DecFrom movie premieres to the awards stage, the guys suited up over the past few days to hit the red carpet, impressing at every sartorial turn.

Orlando Bloom: Decked in a Lanvin Fall 2013 ensemble, Orlando attended ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Los Angeles premiere on Monday. Although his navy one-button tuxedo with black grosgrain shawl collar and white cotton dress shirt with French cuffs and antique silver cuff links were formal, his tie-less approach and black patent-leather, cap-toe sneakers kicked this look into more casual-cool territory.

Idris Elba: At the ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Paris premiere on Monday, Idris put his own spin on fifty shades of grey in a Dior Homme grey-checquered wool, notch-lapel two-button suit, paired with a black, cotton poplin shirt and a black silk tie. Grey loafers finished his outing; a nice departure from black.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor strode out his dapper best at the ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Los Angeles premiere. His Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo featured a luxe, deep mahogany velvet blazer with contrasting shawl lapel, worn with a charcoal-grey vest and tux-stripe pants and a pert black bow tie.

Menswear 22 DecForest Whitaker: Handsomely traditional, the actor attended Monday’s 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City, dressed in a Calvin Klein Collection black suit and tie. His statement glasses added a trendy edge.

Dane DeHaan: Unlike Forest, Dane eschewed the standard black suit and added a fun, quirky punch on the red carpet at the Gotham Awards. His blue kid-mohair, two-button suit was popped with a blue-and-yellow plaid popeline shirt, navy kid-mohair tie, and black spazzolato fume loafers, all from the Prada Spring 2014 collection. He even made sure his socks were colourfully striped.

Michael B. Jordan: Also at the Gotham Awards, Michael walked an elegant line in a slim-fitting Calvin Klein Collection dark-grey tuxedo with contrasting black lapels, paired with a white dress shirt, black bow tie and black Christian Louboutin ‘Bruno Orlato’ loafers—the perfect look for accepting his Breakthrough Actor trophy.

    Idris almost always lands at the top of my lists and he does here again. The rest sort of blend together.

    All three on the top look gorgeous. I think Richard Armitage also looked incredible at The Hobbit premiere. 🙂
