Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

With Canada’s 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and New York City’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 in full swing, the men were out in force for a host of appearances over the past few days.

Andrew Garfield
: The actor attended the TIFF ’99 Homes’ premiere in a Burberry Tailoring three-piece charcoal suit with a traditional dark tie and dove-grey button-down. The suit was immaculate; the scruff was mountain man.

David Beckham: The soccer stud always cuts an impressive profile, and such was the case while he was out in New York City following wife Victoria Beckham’s Fashion Week show. He wore a black Dior Homme wool slim-shawl-collar tuxedo and white cotton shirt. The tux had nothing on him, as he looked every bit the cool customer with the relaxed fit and tie-less styling.

Elisabeth Moss In Antonio Berardi – Gotham Magazine September Cover Party

Elisabeth Moss In Antonio Berardi - Gotham Magazine September Cover Party

Elisabeth Moss celebrated her September cover of ‘Gotham’ magazine at a party hosted in her honour at Sanctuary Hotel’s Tender Restaurant in New York City on Monday (September 8).

The ‘Mad Men’ actress selected an Antonio Berardi Resort 2015 ensemble consisting of a structured, black boat-neck top and an architectural, shiny gunmetal skirt.

I wasn’t crazy about the poufy play on volume here, but more than anything, the lookbook’s bold crimson shoes had me wishing for a bolder, more vibrant pair aside from her Bionda Castana ‘Beatrix’ heels.

For the pop of colour, we’ll have to settle for the teal clutch and coral-red lip, with Jennifer Fisher Jewelry providing the finishing sparkle.

Keira Knightley In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘The Imitation Game’ Toronto Film Festival Press Conference

Keira Knightley In Dolce & Gabbana - 'The Imitation Game'  Toronto Film Festival Press Conference
Keira Knightley returned to the scene at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival for ‘The Imitation Game’ press conference, hosted on Tuesday (September 9) at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, Canada.

I certainly did a double-take when I saw her dressed in this Dolce & Gabbana ivory lace frock with exploded black lace dots creating a graphic statement.

I was firmly opposed to the quirky dress at first glimpse. Now, some part of me has come to accept all those circles—and to even appreciate this bolder look from Keira. If nothing else, it’s attention-grabbing.

One thing I cannot accept are those black pumps, as they are such a drab, dark spot on this look.

Spot-on, or not?

Donna Karan Spring 2015 Front Row

Donna Karan Spring 2015 Front Row

Camila Alves and Caitlin FitzGerald were on the front row of the Donna Karan Spring 2015 fashion show, held during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 in New York City on Monday (September 8). The two lovelies couldn’t have been better coordinated in their Donna Karan Fall 2014 dresses.

Camila Alves: Her dark grey, textural frock featured an exploded, geometric grid pattern of cutouts and sensual sheer detailing, which she accessorized with black sandals. Her tresses blended right in to the dress, so an updo would have been preferred here.

Caitlin FitzGerald: Also flaunting the peekaboo look, Caitlin’s black number had a slightly more streamlined silhouette and perhaps a touch more blatant sultry appeal with sheer panels tracing below her hip. Her makeup was barely detectable, but a dress like this almost demands a smoky eye or the pop of a bold lip as the finishing touch. Do you agree?

Jennifer Aniston In Sportmax – ‘Cake’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Aniston In Sportmax  - 'Cake' Toronto Film Festival Premiere
Jennifer Aniston attended the ‘Cake’ press conference, hosted at the TIFF Bell Lightbox during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada on Tuesday (September 9).

Wearing a far more streamlined and, ahem, less suggestive look than her recent glittery number, the actress was back to a more straightforward silhouette in this dark navy Sportmax dress.

Yet it still had a peplum detail at the waist for visual interest, so the frock won’t go too far in putting any baby-on-board rumours still floating around to rest.

With very minimal styling, she finished the plain-and-simple outing with ankle-strap sandals and nude, and yes glowing, makeup.

Keira Knightley In Miu Miu – HFPA & InStyle’s 2014 TIFF Celebration

Keira Knightley In Miu Miu - HFPA & InStyle’s 2014 TIFF Celebration

Keira Knightley was also among the stars at HFPA and InStyle’s 2014 Toronto International Film Festival celebration at the Windsor Arms Hotel in Toronto, Canada on Friday (September 5).

The actress wasn’t adorned in Chanel or Simone Rocha this time out, instead selecting a Miu Miu draped bustier dress in blue lurex jersey embroidered with cascading tonal paillettes.

The soft colour helped to downplay the allover shimmer of the design, with the resulting effect a more subtle one.

With her barely-there makeup and beach-y waves, the glittery dress took on more of a bohemian flair making it very much a Keira look.

Did you like this outing, or did the sparkle just fall flat?

Zhou Dongyu In Georges Hobeika – ‘Breakup Buddies’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

"Breakup Buddies" Premiere - 2014 Toronto International Film Festival

Zhou Dongyu made a sweeping entrance at the premiere of ‘Breakup Buddies’ at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, hosted at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, Canada on Sunday (September 7).

The actress selected a white crepe, half-sleeve crop top, embroidered with Swarovski crystals and flower-shaped sequins, paired over a yellow organza and tulle skirt from Georges Hobeika’s Spring 2014 Couture collection.

The look was all about the fantasy—and I loved the dazzling, on-trend crop top matched to the ethereal, pastel flurry of shimmering tulle, which she highlighted further with a pretty-in-pink lip lacquer and delicate diamond jewels.

Even the little clutch made me smile, what with its painted hand with red-lacquered nails.

This was a fashion fairytale. What say you?
