Jude Law In Prada - 'Side Effects' Berlin Film Festival

For his new psychological thriller, ‘Side Effects’, Jude Law made appearances in two different Prada outfits at the Berlin Film Festival on Tuesday.

At the photocall, also attended by Rooney Mara, Jude opted for a casual, sleek look, wearing a Prada navy double-breasted cashmere jacket. For a little accent, he added a gold lapel pin.

Underneath his jacket was a red wool v-neck jumper, which I thought added a great kick of colour. To complete his look, Jude wore anthracite wool trousers and black leather lace-up shoes.

On the red carpet with Rooney Mara for the premiere, he wore a Prada navy velvet tuxedo with a white, covered-placket smoking shirt.

His tuxedo featured extra-wide peak lapels, which I wasn’t too crazy about.

A navy radzmire bow tie and patent-leather lace-up shoes finished his look.

I don’t think Jude looked bad in his tuxedo, but I really think he could have done a lot better.

A jacket with slimmer lapels would’ve been a great start.

Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood Man - 2013 Elle Style Awards

At the 2013 Elle Style Awards, held in The Savoy Hotel in London on Monday evening, Bradley Cooper received the ‘Best Actor’ Award.

The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ star wore a Vivienne Westwood blue, notch lapel suit.

He paired his suit with a grey shirt with a forward point collar and a sliver, plaid tie. His award even acted as a good accessory.

The jacket fits nicely, but the pants don’t seem to fit quite right.

They’re just an inch long and could be slimmed down just a bit.

Having said that, it’s always difficult to not like anything Bradley wears, because he always seems to look great.

Just two days ago Bradley was seen wearing a Vivienne Westwood Man Fall 2013 coat.

Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna - Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Scientific & Technical Awards

At the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Scientific and Technical Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday actor Chris Pine served as co-host along with ‘Star Trek’ co-star, Zoe Saldana. The 32-year-old actor arrived on the red carpet in a modern take on a classic look.

Wearing an Ermenegildo Zegna black, two-button tuxedo suited Chris very well. The wide peak lapels and black tie looked phenomenal considering the pants and jacket were tailored to near perfection.

I think we can all see the problem here. It’s ironic that Chris can’t see it. Those frames are much too large and chunky for his face. I like that he is accessorizing with black glasses, but those are incredibly distracting and not the least bit flattering.

The two sci-fi stars will be seen on screen together in the sequel, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, which will be released in theatres on May 17.

Grammys Mens 1

While the Grammys are always a stage for wild fashion from the women’s side, the men typically tend to stay on the classic side – with a few exceptions, of course. The menswear always has a lot of diversity, ranging from dapper to disgusting. This year featured a lot of monochromatic looks and, unfortunately, a lot of bad tailoring.

Justin Timberlake: He’s back and he’s looking better than ever. Suiting up in collaboration with Tom Ford was clearly a wondrous decision. Justin made his return to the Grammys wearing an impeccably tailored Tom Ford black tuxedo with a hip twist on the jacket. His shawl collar was matched with a white-edged black pocket square and a droopy black bow tie. What made this outfit so perfect, though, was the way he was able to honour the old school while staying so modern. He kept his look classic with the black studs on his shirt, those amazing black-and-white loafers, and white dress socks. And he even wore a black cummerbund. He’s easily my best dressed of the Grammys.

Frank Ocean: Prior to performing at the Grammys wearing a custom yellow Band of Outsiders tuxedo, Frank wore a Dior Homme navy wool broadcloth Teddy jacket with silver buttons, paired with a navy wool and silk round neck sleeveless sweater, and navy wool broadcloth slim pants for the red carpet. Both looks showcased his cool, laid-back style.

Ed Sheeran: The red-haired English singer gave a grand performance on stage, but not so much on the red carpet. Ed wore a poorly tailored Burberry navy tuxedo with a two-toned notch lapel. The problem was that his tux fit terribly: the waist was not tailored; the sleeves and pants were too long; and those shoes did not work. I’m all for sneakers with a suit, and I like those particular sneakers, but the rest of his outfit is so bad that it distracts from his shoes. A little more effort next time, Ed.

BAFTA Men

Keeping it classic with black tuxedos and bow ties was prevalent on the red carpet at the EE British Academy Film Awards in London on Sunday. But a handful of biggest stars took a chance with navy colours and velvet fabrics. The risks paid off – for the most part.

Ben Affleck: In addition to taking home the award for Best Director, Bendefinitely took home the award for best male grooming. That dark beard looked amazing with his Gucci Made-to-Order midnight blue velvet Marseille tuxedo. His tux displayed two buttons and notch lapels. Along with his tux, Ben wore a skinny collared white shirt, a matching flat tie in a four-in-hand knot, and black leather lace ups.

Bradley Cooper: Everything below the neck looked incredible on the star of ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’ Wearing a Ferragamo midnight navy three-piece tux with black satin peak lapels, Bradley looked every bit the part of a Best Actor nominee. He even paired it with a bow tie that he needs to straighten out. Unfortunately, it looks like the rain got to him and his hair looks a bit sloppy, considering he’s wearing a tux.

Chris Tucker: If there was one man on the red carpet that ruined his look with the little things, it was Chris Tucker. The navy colour looks great, but he went from looking like a stud to looking like a stooge thanks to his accents. Chris is great, funny actor, but it takes a specific type of confidence and power to pull off lapels that wide – Chris doesn’t have it. And that droopy, oversized bow tie isn’t helping matters.
