‘Olympus Has Fallen’ LA Premiere Menswear Round Up

On Monday night, the cast of ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ took to the red capret at the ArcLight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California for the LA premiere. Colour coordinating their looks, each of the four male leads arrived wearing navy suits.

Gerard Butler: After looking dapper in a three-piece suit at the New York premiere, the star of the film opted to put a small twist on a similar look. He stuck with the three-piece Brioni suit, but chose navy and a different type of waistcoat. The waistcoat was double-breasted and featured a shawl collar, while the suit itself was a typical two-button suit with peak lapels. He cleanly finished the look with a white shirt, navy tie, and black lace-up shoes.

Morgan Freeman: The classic actor donned a classic look with a few of his own personal accessories. His navy-notch lapel Brioni suit fit well, though I wish the pants were a bit shorter, and it matched nicely with his widely-knotted yellow tie. To give it his own attitude, Morgan added a pair of sunglasses and his earrings. He is also still forced to wear his white compression glove due to the car accident in 2008.

Aaron Eckhart: The 45-year-old actor, also in a navy two-button suit by BOSS, switched it up by styling his look with brown wingtip shoes instead of black shoes. Aaron looked great in a tailored suit with a white shirt and blue tie.

Rick Yune: In a lighter shade of navy, Rick cleaned up very well in a slim-fit, two-button suit. Along with the suit, he wore a white shirt and a blue tie with diagonal stripes. He also sported matching suede shoes, of which I wasn’t a big fan; that would have been a good place to give a pop of black or brown colour.

I couldn’t believe all four of them wore navy suits. Someone needed to step out of the box here. My favourite look was between Gerard and Rick, but I’m going to go with Rick because Gerard’s waistcoat was too distracting for me.

GI JOE London premiere menswear

The much-anticipated sequel ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ had its London premiere at Empire Leicester Square on Monday evening.

Channing Tatum: For the carpet, Channing sported a Gucci charcoal notch-lapel Marseille suit with a blue dress shirt. He styled the suit with a blue-and-brown striped tie and black leather lace ups. I loved the tie, but it’s the creased shirt and long pants that bother me. His pants fit well at the Oscars when he wore Gucci last so this is a bit of a let down.

Byung-hun Lee: The South Korean actor ditched the suit and showed up in a cool, casual outfit. It consisted of a black leather motorcycle jacket, black denim pants, and a pair of black leather boots. Underneath the jacket, Byung-hun dressed up his outfit with a white shirt and a black tie. I like the look, and props to Byung-hun for knowing how clothes are meant to fit, but I don’t think it’s completely appropriate for a film premiere.

Dwayne Johnson: Formerly known as The Rock, the professional wrestler turned actor arrived on the carpet looking less than stellar, to put it nicely. His navy three-piece suit looked as if it was straight off the rack. No part of it fits the way it should.

D.J. Cotrona: Looking very dapper in a black notch lapel suit, D.J. donned my favourite look of the four. It’s tailored to perfection and the 32-year-old actor wore it well. He added a white pocket square, a white shirt, and a silver tie. My only gripe with the outfit is that I would have preferred a slimmer tie. Not a skinny tie, but a narrow tie.

Dan Stevens In Calvin Klein - 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

Dan Stevens was in attendance, and looking drastically different, at the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on Saturday night.

The British actor is known for his character Matthew Crawley on the hit PBS and ITV series ‘Downton Abbey’. His character sported blonde locks, a side part, and a much rounder figure. This weight loss and hairstyle transformation is said to be for a new role.

Looking much more trim, he opted for a Calvin Klein dark grey, one-button suit with notch lapels from the spring 2013 collection designed by Italo Zucchelli. Under the wool suit, Dan wore a black shirt and black skinny tie from the same Calvin Klein collection.

With his new svelte look he nailed the proportions with a thin lapel over the skinny collar and tie.

Do you like this new look or do you think Dan’s Hollywood makeup has gone a step too far?

James Franco In Gucci

To support his new films ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ and ‘Spring Breakers,’ actor James Franco made two suited-up appearances on Thursday in California.

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno: Early in the evening, James was at the NBC Studio in Burbank, California making a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’ For this he wore a Gucci black signoria suit with notch lapels. James opted for a black-on-black look with his shirt and leather lace-up shoes. It wasn’t completely black, however, as he went with a navy tie to finish it off.

‘Spring Breakers’ LA Premiere: He later headed to Hollywood for the ‘Spring Breakers’ premiere. Sticking with Gucci, as always, James sported a navy, peak lapel signoria suit with a pale blue shirt underneath. To style the suit he wore a blue tie and black shoes.

James cleaned up well at both events. Both suits fit nicely and he didn’t choose to go with the short pants like he did in Hollywood last week. I liked both looks but my favourite was the black-on-black because I preferred the fit of the blazer.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt In Prada - 'Don Jon' 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival Premiere

Joseph Gordon-Levitt was in Austin, Texas, on Monday to present a screening of his new film ‘Don Jon,’ which he directed, wrote, and starred in. The screening was a part of the 2013 SXSW Film, Interactive, Music Festival held at the Paramount Theatre.

To present his film, Joseph arrived clad in Prada from the Spring 2013 collection.

He wore a Prada baltico blue, kid mohair suit that fit him perfectly. His two-button suit was styled with a white, poplin twill shirt and a navy microdot silk tie, both of which were Prada.

He has shown time and again, including at the Oscars, that he knows how his suits should fit. And I love that he always fashionably supports his open-collaborative production company hitRECord with that red lapel pin.

‘Don Jon,’ (formerly titled Don Jon’s Addiction) which also stars Scarlett Johansson and Tony Danza, will be out sometime in the summer.

Gerard Butler In Z Zegna - ‘Olympus Has Fallen' New York Premiere

Gerard Butler returned to the spotlight on Monday in New York City when The Cinema Society with Roger Dubuis and Grey Goose hosted a screening of his new action film, ‘Olympus Has Fallen.’

In a Z Zegna three-piece, grey glen-plaid suit, the Scottish actor looked rather sharp.

He matched his wool, peak-lapel suit with a classic white shirt and a pair of black lace-up shoes. The look was completed with a Roger Dubuis timepiece.

I loved every part of this outfit. He nailed the look, and going without a tie was a great way to dress down his suit.

On March 22, Gerard will be seen in ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ alongside costars Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman.
