2014 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup

2014 Grammy Awards Menswear RoundupOn the whole, the fashion hit a flat note at the 2014 Grammy Awards, held on Sunday (January 26) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. So I was rather relieved, if not mildly amused, to see the guys turn up the volume on their sartorial statements. Here, a roundup of menswear glimpsed at the show.

Pharrell Williams: The singer-producer, who accepted the record of the year trophy with Daft Punk, couldn’t be missed last night, thanks to his absurdly over-sized Vivienne Westwood Mountain Hat. The rest of the look—a red track jacket, jeans and faded untied boots—took a back seat to the mushy, mountie topper, which naturally drew some silly comparisons and a host of memes. But at least there was some attitude on the red carpet.

Daft Punk: The big winners of the night, the ‘Lucky’ French duo danced their way around in head-to-toe Saint Laurent ensembles. Of course, what really made those dark tuxes and bow ties pop were the silver and gold robot heads, the matching metallic gloves, and the Saint Laurent jodhpur boots in silvery glitter leather.

2014 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup 2Robin Thicke: Accompanied by his wife, Paula Patton, the ‘Blurred Lines’ singer was suave in a midnight-blue Giorgio Armani velvet two-button notch lapel suit with a white evening shirt and a midnight-blue satin bow tie, which he accessorized with a David Yurman ring and cufflinks, and a pair of his signature shades.

LL Cool J: Like Robin, the rapper also worked the blue velvet trend in a Giorgio Armani midnight-navy, one-button dinner jacket with black satin peak lapels, a classic white evening shirt and a bow tie, all topped off with a black fedora.

2014 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup 3Jared Leto: Working a Balmain Homme ensemble, featuring a black blazer with red brocade lapels, the entertainer flaunted his standard messy-cool M.O. He finished the look with baggy black pants, a sweater tied around his waist and untied, scruffy boots.

Calvin Harris: Standing alongside his girl, Rita Ora, the two-time nominee was hyper-polished in a classic black Giorgio Armani two-button peak lapel tuxedo with a classic white evening shirt and a bow tie.

2014 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup 4Ryan Lewis and Macklemore: Ryan rocked a Mr. Turk two-tone houndstooth suit, worn with patent black and silver Christian Louboutin loafers. It was bold and brash, and perhaps an acquired taste. But I was intrigued. Likewise, Macklemore also coloured outside the lines in deep teal-green velvet, shawl collar tuxedo and black bow tie, completed by studded Giuseppe Zanotti Design slipper shoes.

Kendrick Lamar: The hip-hop artist wore a Dior Homme Prussian-blue wool tuxedo jacket and matching pants with tuxedo ticket pocket and contrast waistband. Underneath, he skipped the standard button-down and tie for a black bi-material sleeveless T-shirt with satin front and completed the look with black leather derbies. Did you like the shortened, athletic-cut of this suit?

2014 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup 5Blake Shelton: Standing by his lady in red, Miranda Lambert, the country crooner took a more casual approach in a John Varvatos grey ‘Austin’ blazer, worn over a black vest and microprint tie, with dark denim jeans and the requisite cowboy boots.

Neil Patrick Harris: Also going with the denim look, the funny man paired his black Sand suit jacket with a partially unbuttoned white dress shirt and black jeans.

    I must be crazy, but I love Pharrell’s outfit.
    Other than that, Rita and Calvin look really nice as a couple.

    LOVE the velvet trend for men!

    Macklemore’s slippers aren’t Louboutin, they’re Giussepe Zanotti, look: http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/designer-giuseppe-zanotti-design-studded-slipper-item-10580083.aspx I’m drooling over those shoes!

    Macklemore and Lewis are the 2 standouts here for me – very well put-together, polished, with a tasteful dose of quirk and boldness for the event.
    Robin Thicke’s midnight-blue Armani velvet suit is gorgeous.

    Pharrell’s hat has definitely been the talk of the town because of his size but I didn’t really care much for the complete package.
    Favs are Macklemore & Daft Punk.

    Gotta love Jared Leto ;)

    Didn’t care for his hat with the outfit on the red carpet. But it totally work during his performance with the white pants and blue sweater. By the end of the night, I was a fan!

    Daft Punk for me. The classic, low-key St Laurent suits beautifully set off the robot gear and sparkly shoes. Absolutely love it!

    I like the way Blake Shelton kept his outfit country-casual but still sharp enough to stand next to Miranda without looking like a slob.
    I like Robin Thicke’s and LL Cool J’s looks — the hat and shades work well here.

    The rest are either too boring for the Emmies or too far-out for conservative me!

      Me, too, I love how dressed up Blake looks while staying comfortable AND standing out. Being tall helps, I guess – I’m not sure anyone can just look so dashing in denim.

    I like Ryan Lewis and Macklemore, Kendrick Lamar and Robin Thicke suits

    Daft Punk look really nice.

      +1! Love the attitude, and the suits are purrfect!

    This was probably the most boring Grammy red carpet in eons! We needed J.Lo to bring in some fierceness lol
