Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

From awards galas to premieres and more, there were plenty of occasions for the men to be out in force on the red carpet. Here’s a look at the men who have been front and centre.

Justin Timberlake: Proving that the velvet trend isn’t just for the ladies, Justin cut a thoroughly suave profile in this dark-green velvet Tom Ford tuxedo at the 9th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday (November 11) in Hollywood. I love this luxe twist on the classic tux.

Jason Momoa: Although his styling may have been more in the manner of edgy-bohemian, Jason’s custom Valentino tuxedo was quite smooth and polished at the ‘Justice League’ LA premiere on Monday (November 13).

Jared Leto: It’s Jared Leto and it’s an MTV event, so it’s only natural that he would go sartorially wild at the 2017 MTV EMAs on Sunday (November 12) in London with his latest Gucci endeavor—a Fall 2017 look that was even more subversively rebellious than the runway presentation. The colour discord between the lavender, bubblegum, and red track pants made me want to shield my eyes—and we haven’t even gotten to the tidy-whitey sneakers.

Chadwick Boseman: Chadwick gave Justin Timberlake a run for his money at the Governors Awards in this Bottega Veneta double-breasted suit that was almost impossibly handsome. I immediately fell in love with the embossed patterning—and how sharp this looked. Christian Louboutin ‘Cousin Greg’ shoes completed the ensemble.

Shawn Mendes: With a better rendition of taking a fashion risk than Jared, I could get on board with Shawn’s The Kooples bespoke suit at the MTV EMAs. It was unexpected with its rich palette and pattern play, but still well put-together.

Garrett Hedlund: The Governors Awards saw Garrett go for the sophistication of traditional, best-in-class form with this traditional Salvatore Ferragamo tuxedo.

Robert Pattinson: I like how Robert’s Dior Homme tuxedo at the Governors Award offered a slightly unconventional variation in the top bow tie effect.

Dave Franco: The cool, abstractly patterned shirt is what really takes this Givenchy suit up several notches at the AFI Fest screening of ‘The Disaster Artist’ on Sunday (November 12).

Miles Teller: With an even more formalized mood, Miles wore a three-piece Ermenegildo Zegna Couture design styled with Salvatore Ferragamo shoes at the Governors Awards.

Andrew Garfield: Andrew can generally be relied upon for classic flair, and that was proven yet again in his perfectly tailored Tom Ford tux at the Governors Awards.

Ray Fisher: Also at the ‘Justice League’ LA premire, Ray presented a beautiful midnight-blue Versace suit styled with a tonal black Turnbull & Asser tie, Magnanni shoes, a Mont Blanc watch, and a David Yurman ring.

Algee Smith: Opting for a white dinner jacket to stand out from the black-tux-brigade, Algee dressed up in a Prada ensemble at the Governors Awards.

Jake Gyllenhaal: It was a white jacket moment for Jake, too, with his Burberry ensemble that was quite charming at the American Cinematheque Awards Gala on Friday (November 10) in Beverly Hills, California.

Jake Gyllenhaal: Another day, another tux for Jake, who equally impressed at the Governors Awards with this Gucci DIY MTO black velvet double breasted Heritage tuxedo. I again loved seeing this debonair interpretation of velvet in menswear.

James Franco: Also at the AFI Fest screening of ‘The Disaster Artist’ alongside Dave, James kept it all business in his Dolce & Gabbana suit that will no doubt fall in a bit of the lacklustre category for some given the nondescript tie and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes.

    Chadwick looks absolutely amazing! The rest is either boring or downright scary ugly (looking at you Jared lol!). I am all for being different and all but it has to make sense. Someone who dresses unique and yet makes sense to me is Pharell Williams. I get a sense of personal style and not like “I’ll just throw on anything Gucci” Jared Leto.

    Tom Ford has some of the most insane colors in his collections but yet, every mens redcarpet moment is a black suit/black tuxedo.
    How boring!

  3. Amanda F November 15, 2017 at 04:40 #

    Shawn Mendes for the win!

    Don’t these men get tired of wearing the same round of outfits every time and they have the audacity to stand in front of the cameramen posing as if they’re wearing something interesting?

  5. Nat39 November 15, 2017 at 02:15 #

    Chadwick.
    Dave and Robert did well. Andrew is sharp (although needed to tame his hair a bit perhaps) but he’s done this same look way too many times this season. Jake’s black velvet look is nice.

    Shawn please. BDOTW – Male.

  7. TeaAtTwo November 15, 2017 at 00:30 #

    Shawn, Chadwick and Dave for mixing it up. But Jake does look debonair in traditional formal wear.

  8. Pheephee November 14, 2017 at 22:55 #

    I love Shawns suit! Its interesting and he wears it so well.

  9. JHH November 14, 2017 at 22:52 #

    Chadwick and Shawn look terrific here. The rest other than Jared who looks ridiculous look generically good but that is the current nature of menswear, I guess.

  10. CreoleLady November 14, 2017 at 22:39 #

    Love Chadwick Boseman and Shawn Mendes. If only Jason Momoa’s slacks were hemmed just a bit. Also like Timberlake’s green velvet jacket.

  11. Chris November 14, 2017 at 22:29 #

    I like Chadwick and Shawn the most here.

    is jared leto ever going to stop dressing like a clown?

    • charlene November 14, 2017 at 21:57 #

      Is the rest of Hollywood’s male population ever going to stop dressing like clones?

      • Meme November 15, 2017 at 00:52 #

        I’d rather see a man in a perfected tailored suit than clown clothes.

        • charlene November 15, 2017 at 01:28 #

          I’d rather see the rare ‘clown clothes’ than ‘perfected tailored suits’ a zillion times.

    • JHH November 14, 2017 at 22:50 #

      No, he is not but at least he is doing something different. Usually, it’s awful like this outfit but it’s never just like everyone else.

      • Meme November 15, 2017 at 00:52 #

        Different doesn’t mean good.

        • charlene November 15, 2017 at 01:32 #

          True but at least it doesn’t mean boring. Anyway it’s not like everyone thinks this era’s standard menswear is good. I find suits and tuxes totally non chic and sexless.

          • Meme November 15, 2017 at 10:39 #

            OK. We’ll have to agree to disagree. I think men in beautiful suits are sexy and you don’t. To each his own.

        • Nat39 November 15, 2017 at 02:26 #

          “Different doesn’t mean good” – Exactly. A non-boring clown is a clown – tasteless, garish, non-stylish, devoid of any sophistication mess.

          • charlene November 15, 2017 at 02:51 #

            Wearing a uniform is ‘sophisticated’?

            • Nat39 November 15, 2017 at 03:29 #

              I understand what you’re trying to say, but I’m afraid you picked a wrong example to start this discussion. If it had been a superbly executed fashionable look with a superior sense of style then of course it would’ve been head and shoulders above the rest of the “uniform” display. But the level of tastelessness of Jared’s Gucci here is way below anything.

              • charlene November 15, 2017 at 03:45 #

                I did not pick him. It was Meme who singled him out to criticize among the sea of uniformly dressed men. I’m defending what Jared’s style represents not Jared’s style in particular. It’s more fun hits n misses or downright messes than total bores.

              • Nat39 November 15, 2017 at 05:00 #

                Ok:) generally speaking…I def. agree with you that it’s nice when somebody is trying to do something bolder, more interesting and different, it has to be encouraged. But on the other hand, would I take a laughable non-boring miss in those efforts over a well-done classic look for ex?? I don’t think so, and that’s what Meme is trying to say, I think. And yes, a man in a properly done classic look can look utterly refined and sophisticated and appropriate for the formal occasion.

    Except Jared & maybe Shawn the rest can swap each other’s clothes or replace the pictures with any other event and nobody would know or care.
