Nicolas Cage In Ferragamo & Ryan Reynolds In GANT Rugger – ‘The Croods’ New York Premiere

Nicolas Cage In Ferragamo & Ryan Reynolds In GANT Rugger - 'The Croods' New York Premiere

Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds joined Emma Stone and Blake Lively on the red carpet on Sunday afternoon at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 Theater in New York City for the premiere of ‘The Croods’. They both wore navy, but rocked two very different looks.

Nicolas Cage: Wearing a Ferragamo peak-lapel suit boded well for the 49-year-old actor. It featured two buttons – which shouldn’t both be buttoned – to which he added a simple white shirt. A pair of black lace-ups finished off the look. Nicolas kept it simple, which was smart. The suit fit him well and the trouser length was perfect. We have taken issue with several other actors in recent weeks wearing suits with pants that were way too long.

Ryan Reynolds: Ryan dressed down for the premiere, looking casual in Gant Rugger. His outfit, from the top down, consisted of a well-fitted three-button navy jacket over a deep-neck navy sweater with a shawl collar and slim-fit navy pinstripe pants. To break up the deep-blue hues, Ryan opted for a white crewneck shirt underneath his sweater and a pair of brown leather lace-ups. I liked the look because everything fit very nicely, but it may have been a bit too casual, even for a premiere for an animated movie. A suit sans tie probably would have made a better impression. Never thought I’d say this, but I wish Ryan had taken a tip from Nicolas Cage. Weird, I know.

All in all, both actors looked good. Their film ‘The Croods’ is set for release on March 22 in the US.

Menswear Round Up

Menswear round up

Jude Law: In mid-February at the ‘Side Effects’ Berlin photocall, Jude wore a red v-neck shirt under his Prada double-breasted suit. At the film’s Paris premiere at UGC Cine Cite des Halles on Thursday, he attempted, and failed at, a similar look; the star of the film arrived in a Prada navy double-breasted suit over a charcoal v-neck shirt. The jacket looked nice and the v-neck worked, but his baggy pants ruined it all.

Leonardo DiCaprio: At the Seoul, South Korea premiere of ‘Django Unchained’ on Thursday, Leo sported a Tom Ford navy three-piece suit with wide peak lapels and a matching navy tie. This look had everything going for it, except proper tailoring. Not only did his jacket need to be nipped in at the sides to give him more of a V shape, his pants were rather baggy. So close, but yet so far.

Adrien Brody: In the most dapper look of the week, Adrien was in attendance for Carine Roitfeld’s ‘CR Fashion Book Issue 2′ cocktail party as part of Paris Fashion Week at Hotel Shangri-La on Tuesday. The actor arrived wearing a well-tailored Margiela black shawl-lapel suit along with a white shirt and black ankle boots, both of which were also Margiela. He styled his look nicely with a black bow tie and a black-faced watch.

James Franco In Gucci – Hollywood Walk of Fame Unveiling

James Franco In Gucci - Hollywood Walk of Fame Unveiling

James Franco was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday afternoon in California.

The star of ‘Oz: the Great and Powerful’ looked incredibly handsome in a Gucci Resort 2013 cornflower-blue suit.  

The blue colour combination was perfectly executed and the entire suit was nicely tailored.  

James wisely opted to have his pants cut short to accentuate his Gucci brown loafers.  

He has been seen in a Gucci suit at least three times since mid-February most notably at the LA premiere, the Japan premiere and the Moscow premiere.

The actor joins Ryan Gosling and Robert Pattinson in going gaga for Gucci.

Fashion’s Newest It Boy – Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean Fashion Week

As the new star of the fashion world, musician Frank Ocean made regular appearances during Paris Fashion Week. He was spotted in the front row at five shows – Dior, Givenchy, Margiela, Chanel (not pictured), and Valentino.

Christian Dior: To view the new Dior collection, Frank donned some Dior of his own. He arrived looking smooth in a Dior Homme white poplin cotton shirt and Dior Homme black wool garbadine pants. It was a clean look, which he finished off casually with a pair of black-and-blue Nike sneakers. This was my favourite look of the bunch. Frank also sported Dior Homme at the Grammys last month.

Givenchy: At the second show, he switched it up a bit by wearing the casual on top. He wisely swapped his sneakers for a pair of black shoes and flashy socks, and matched it with a pair of charcoal coloured trousers. To add that bit of casual, Frank wore a Givenchy black sweatshirt from the Fall 2013 collection under his black coat.

Maison Martin Margiela: For Margiela, Frank opted for a pair of ill-fitted burgundy pants and an untucked white shirt. A black topcoat and his Nike sneakers completed his look. Unlike his first two outfits, in this Frank looks a bit disheveled.

Valentino: Half of this look was great. The other half was not. Sporting one of the hottest trends of the season, Frank wore a great pair of slim-fit camo pants, along with his sneakers – again. Unfortunately, he matched it with a baggy P.A.M. T-shirt from the Spring 2013 collection that says, “Psychedelic Life.” Not a psychedelic shirt, Frank.

Cameron Silver In Atelier Versace & Christos Garkinos In Paul Smith – ‘Dukes of Melrose’ Launch Party

Cameron Silver In Atelier Versace & Christos Garkinos In Paul Smith - 'Dukes of Melrose' Launch Party

In celebration of Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos’ new Bravo series, ‘Dukes of Melrose’, Harper’s Bazaar held an event at The Terrace at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood on Thursday evening.

Wearing unique suits, the two stars certainly showed off their fashion chops and looked the centre of attention.

Cameron Silver: No longer with blonde hair, Cameron matched his silver locks to his Versace Atelier Swarovski-crystal camo double-breasted jacket. Under the jacket he wore a Charvet custom shirt and a Lanvin black bow tie. To finish it off, Cameron continued his sparkling look with Max Kibardin Swarovski-crystal slippers and Balmain black pants.

Christos Garkinos: Cameron’s business partner, Christos, sported a Paul Smith red one-button suit over a black shirt. Like Cameron, he opted for no break at the ankle to show off the sockless look with his Saint Laurent black lace-ups. As much as I love the wild suits Cameron pulls off, my favourite look here belongs to Christos. The bold red colour of his suit was just flashy enough without being too overpowering.

2013 Oscars Menswear Round Up

2013 Oscars Menswear Round Up

While the women looked absolutely gorgeous at the 2013 Oscars, the men used the biggest black tie event of the year to showcase some truly dapper looks. A large majority of the men stuck to the classic black and white, as opposed to navy and grey, and it paid off. With all the cleaned-up looks, it was surprising to see that the most popular trend of the night was facial hair. From full beards to scruff, the men of the Oscars made a manly statement.

Channing Tatum: Before dancing with Charlize Theron in the opening, the popular actor donned a nicely fitted Gucci made-to-order navy three-piece tux with Martin Katz studs and cufflinks. His outfit featured a classy shawl lapel and shirt studs. He rocked his tux all night with a huge smile thanks to his glowingly beautiful pregnant wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

Eddie Redmayne: Here’s the one you’ve all been waiting for. The always-dapper Eddie Redmayne arrived in a slim-fit Alexander McQueen black tuxedo with wide peak lapels. Like he’s shown over the past few months, Eddie knows how a suit should fit, and this tux fit perfectly. Finishing off his look with a tribute to the old school, he wore gold studs and, my favourite part, black tuxedo slippers.

Ben Affleck: That fantastic beard is back. The director and producer of Best Picture winner ‘Argo’ wore a Gucci black three-piece tuxedo that featured peak lapels. With his black bow tie, Ben wore a white shirt with a wing-tip collar. The pants could have been a bit shorter, but what he lacks in tailoring he makes up for in facial hair. Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner, also wore Gucci to the event.
