Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 25 Feb

Between premieres and the Elle Style Awards, there was a lot of man candy on the red carpet last night.

Will Smith: Looking as sharp as ever, the actor joined his wife Jada Pinkett Smith on the red carpet for the ‘Focus’ LA premiere wearing a striped three-piece suit working a divine combo of navy and lilac.

Lewis Hamilton: The Formula 1 racing driver wore a rich burgundy suit from Marni’s Spring 2015 collection, taking styling notes from Tinie Tempah and opting for cropped trousers that showed off his Cesare Casadei black moccasins. I’m not sure if this looks cool or comical. Cool from the calves up methinks.

2015 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscar men

The men were out in force at the 2015 Oscars and the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where there was plenty of handsome inspiration to go around from a fine group of fellows.

Jared Leto: Getting the evening started on a non-traditional note, the actor and musician was every bit the unorthodox Academy Awards dresser in his baby-blue Givenchy tux, accented by a white bowtie and white lug sole shoes. He let his hair down literally and made no excuses for it, saying that the Oscars was his going-away party for his locks. I wonder if the beard was also included in that party. While no one could pull this off like Jared, between the mane and the male pastels, this was verging on almost too much too handle.

Chris Pine: A stark contrast to Jared, Chris went for the all-out traditionally classic route and suited up in a Giorgio Armani black double-breasted peak-lapel tuxedo. It was impeccable and goes to show what transformative power a well-tailored tux can have.

David Oyelowo: Looking as if he was inspired by the red carpet itself, the ‘Selma’ actor dressed to impress in a crimson Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo word with #TackleEbola handcrafted pin by Jason of Beverly Hills. He does a great job pulling off this colour, yet I’m not completely sold on the satiny look of the vest and bowtie underneath.

2015 Oscars Couples

2015 Oscars plus ones

This post is dedicated to those gorgeous plus-ones on Oscar night, who should never be left in the shade.

Sophie Hunter: The pregnant wife of Benedict Cumberbatch looked breathtaking in her custom Lanvin red one-shoulder gown with brass beading. The vivid colour was only heighted when she stood alongside Benedict in his stark white tuxedo blazer. While oozing femininity, her gold Lanvin accessories and drop earrings helped made this quite a strong, powerful look. She’s slowly becoming my favourite plus-one. Sorry, Camila Alves.

Hannah Bagshawe: The British couple both wore navy Alexander McQueen. Eddie Redmayne wore a Bespoke navy tuxedo with black velvet slippers to collect his Best actor awards, while she wore a navy chiffon embroidered gown with embellished feather belt styled with a gold McQueen ‘Clutch Me’ clutch.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is the final menswear roundup of the week.

David Oyelowo: Fresh from his Best Actor win at the NAACP Image Awards, David attended the ‘Selma’ photocall during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival on Tuesday (February 10) in Berlin, Germany. Continuing to show plenty of flair, his dark look was lifted by his sharp printed blazer and Louis Leeman metal-toe loafers.

Jamie Dornan: The actor went the more classic route attending the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ London premiere with co-star Dakota Johnson. The Irish actor wore an Alexander McQueen navy suit with his own touch of flare added via a polka skull tie.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 12 feb

We’ve seen their leading ladies, now let’s look at the gents taking to the red carpet last night (February 11).

Will Smith: The actor joined Margot Robbie on the red carpet for the screening of ‘Focus’ in London. From his semi-casual look it was clear that this was a laidback screening, but at least his look had more style and flair.

Jamie Dornan: The actor took to the red carpet with co-star Datoka Johnson and wife Amelia Warner (in Temperley London) for the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ premiere during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival. Still looking somewhat bewildered by the whole thing, the actor scrubbed up nicely in his black Neil Barrett tux, co-ordinating his blue tie and pocket square with his wife’s accessories.

Zachary Quinto: The actor joined a host of lovely ladies at the 2015 amfAR New York Gala wearing head-to-toe Lanvin. This is one of Zachary’s more traditional red carpet offerings with no twists or quirks to be had.
