Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup
While Paris Couture Fashion Week has directed much attention to the looks of the City of Light, a few good men have captured attention outside of Paris, France.

Tom Hiddleston: The British actor was the ultimate sartorial show-off at day nine of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships at Wimbledon on Wednesday (July 8) in London, England. He was at the height of handsomeness in his Ralph Lauren Purple Label three-piece navy suit perfectly paired with a light-blue striped dress shirt. A straw hat, which he also wore, only added to the laid-back yet polished charisma of the look.

Channing Tatum: Showing the slight evidence of scruff, the actor wore several shades of grey to the ‘Magic Mike XXL’ premiere in Sydney, Australia on Monday (July 6) in a Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit. While he always manages to maintain his fine profile, this ensemble fell to more lacklustre territory in comparison to some of his other promo tour looks thus far.

Front Row @ Fall 2015 Couture Week

Front Row @ Fall 2015 Couture Week

Fashionable femmes have been in attendance at a range of shows during Paris Fall 2015 Couture Fashion Week in Paris, France.

Olivia Palermo: Included in her fashion show rounds, Olivia was at the Schiaparelli presentation on Monday (July 6), where she opted to wear a Christian Dior gingham frock. Styled with flats and a silk printed scarf, the ensemble did possess a certain charm. But the deep and wide plunge neckline did no favours to the otherwise sweet silhouette.

Paz Vega: While the sheer overload continues, I still absolutely loved Paz’s Ralph & Russo Couture outing at the Ralph & Russo Couture show on Tuesday (July 7). The combination of enchanting, laser-cut white lace and the glamorous, old-Hollywood peplum silhouette had me at hello—and the daring punch of the scorpion-encrusted clutch only furthered my affection for the look.

Lupita Nyong’o
: The actress was definitively elegant in a Maison Margiela sheer-paneled dress at the Maison Margiela Couture show on Wednesday (July 8). While the impeccable tailoring contributed to the success of the ensemble, it was refreshing to likewise see Lupita veer slightly outside the box with funky platform heels—although this would have been a nice occasion to bring in a vibrant lip, too.

Tory Burch Paris Flagship Opening & After Party

Tory Burch Paris Flagship Opening & After Party
Dianna Agron, Mélanie Laurent, and Jessica Alba were among the Tory Burch-dressed lovelies at the Tory Burch Paris Flagship store opening and after party that was hosted on Tuesday (July 7) in Paris, France. During the event, Lauryn Hill took to the stage for a 45-minute set, which included her classic hits, ‘Doo-Wop’ from Miss Education and ‘Killing Me Softly.’

Dianna Agron: Showing the smooth richness of burgundy, the actress wore a Tory Burch Fall 2015 silk halter gown paired with the ‘Bowood’ sandal. She accessorized with a metallic Rodo clutch and jewels by Monica Vinader, which worked seamlessly with the gold studded embellishment of the dress.

Mélanie Laurent: The French star was at the height of effortless Parisian-chic minimalism in a Tory Burch Resort 2016 pebbled crepe jumpsuit. I love the bold orange hue that was enlivened with the Tory Burch double-horn pendant. The only thing I would change is the colour of her custom minaudière, as a lighter shade would have been preferred for summer. But it did match her black Tory Burch ‘Classic’ ankle-strap sandals.

Jessica Alba: Her decorative Tory Burch Fall 2015 jacquard gown was striking in its ornate undertones, which was balanced by the more straightforward ‘Jones’ sandal along with a stunning dark ruby lip and tightly knotted bun.

M.A.C Cosmetics & Giambattista Valli Floral Obsession Ball

MAC Cosmetics & Giambattista Valli Floral Obsession Ball

Nieves Alvarez and Olivia Palermo joined Jessica Alba at the M.A.C Cosmetics and Giambattista Valli Floral Obsession Ball, held at Opera Garnier on Monday (July 6) in Paris, France.

Nieves Alvarez: Paying homage to the theme, she wore a Giambattista Valli Pre-Fall 2015 mini dress with a swath of floral-printed paneling providing a vivid contrast to the striking black and white colour blocking. Black strappy sandals and a clutch completed the sweet-chic look that she wore with sophisticated charm.

Olivia Palermo: While her black blouse and off-white Christian Dior Spring 2015 wrap skirt was classically elegant, there was a certain lack of vibrancy in the ensemble despite the added flair brought by the leopard-printed Francesco Russo sandals. Even a bright lip would have done much to perk up the look.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Stella McCartney & Christian Dior – Out In London & Paris

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Stella McCartney & Christian Dior - Out In London & Paris

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been making the rounds in both London and Paris in a range of red carpet and street-style statements. Here, two looks that yet again remind that she can easily make the sidewalk her personal runway with her chic off-duty style.

July 3: While leaving Clarke’s restaurant in London, England, she wore a billowy, asymmetrical Stella McCartney ‘Rosa’ check-print silk dress in muted pastel tones that whispered of summer breeziness especially when paired with her statement sunglasses. In addition to those shopping bags, she carried a Balenciaga ‘Papier A4′ leather tote. And while most would probably wear the dress with flat sandals, Rosie went left for a sportier look with Étoile Isabel Marant ‘Bart’ sneakers. But you cannot fault a girl for loving her sneakers.

July 5: A few days later, the model strutted out a Christian Dior Spring 2015 floral jumpsuit while in Paris, France. I loved every bit of this look—even more so than its original runway presentation—mainly for its nonchalantly chic, rolled-up sleeves attitude juxtaposed with the structured edge of the belt and the sexiness of the lace-up booties.
