2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Menswear Roundup

2015 Critics' Choice Movie Awards Menswear Roundup

Here’s a quick roundup of the men who took to the red carpet for the 2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at the Hollywood Palladium on Thursday (January 15) in Los Angeles, California.

Eddie Redmayne: Giving just that little bit extra, which always sees him standing above his peers, the actor opted for a sharp Valentino shawl-collar tuxedo in his favoured slim-fit silhouette.

Jared Leto: Following the Globes, I was worried he had lost his mojo, but here he’s bursting with flavour. Standing out wearing a bright blue Costume National blazer accented with a pink carnation, you have to admire his courage in always doing something different. Thankfully opting for black trousers instead of going full blue, he did match his blazer to his sock with an extra kick coming from his Swarovski-embellished Louis Leeman loafers. On this occasion he swapped his man-braid for a man-bun.

Ethan Hawke: Yet to wear a black suit this awards season, the ‘Boyhood’ actor also stood out, donning a Lanvin light grey suit with black velvet piping. These top three will most definitely keep menswear interesting this awards season.

They all wore Emporio Armani, going for a two button tieless look, to a triple button wool suit and a double breasted satin lapel suit.

While the suits are different in style, the issue with their trouser length is the same – way too long.

Menswear Midweek Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Midweek Red Carpet Roundup 14 jan

Here is a quick menswear roundup starting in Washington, crossing to London and heading back stateside to New York.

Bradley Cooper: While his co-star Sienna Miller was promoting their new movie ‘American Sniper’ in New York, Bradley was attending the premiere held at the Burke Theater at the US Navy Memorial in Washington DC on Tuesday (January 13). The actor was looking very sharp in a Thom Sweeney grey flannel suit styled with a thick navy tie and shiny patent-leather lace-ups.

David Gandy: The words David Gandy and dapper go hand in hand. He was looking mighty fine in London on Monday afternoon (January 12) ahead of the Burberry Prorsum London Collections: Men Fall 2015 show. Decked out in a mustard three-piece windowpane suit styled with blue shirt and striped tie, I was very much on the fence when it came to the hat, but the styling grew on me quite quickly because, let’s face it, he can pull just about anything off.

Chris Hemsworth: The actor made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, taped at the Rockefeller Center on Tuesday (January 13) in New York City, to promote his latest movie, ‘Blackhat’. Before being soaked with water by the host, the actor was looking as handsome as ever wearing a grey windowpane suit sans tie, which was beautifully tailored for a streamlined fit.

2015 Golden Globes Menswear Roundup

2015 Golden Globes Menswear Roundup

The guys were none too shabby when it came to their sartorial selections at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards, held last night (January 11) at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, boasting a range of looks that went way beyond the standard black tux.

Matt Bomer: The Best Supporting Actor winner for ‘The Normal Heart’ was dressed just as winningly in an impeccable Ralph Lauren Black Label navy shawl collar tuxedo that naturally brought out his own baby blues and was handsomely paired with a dark bowtie and crisp white button-down shirt.

Eddie Redmayne: Looking as sharp as ever, ‘The Theory of Everything’ Best Actor winner took a Euro-cool version of black velvet out for a spin, donning a Gucci notch-lapel, two-button New Signoria evening jacket with a white evening shirt, black satin bowtie, black tuxedo trousers and black patent leather lace-up shoes.

Alan Cumming
: Having quite the nude moment, ‘The Good Wife’ actor and nominee wore a buff wool, two-button peak lapel tuxedo, buff dress shirt and buff silk skinny tie from the Spring 2015 Calvin Klein Collection. Between the monochromatic buff-ness and the rolled pant legs, not to mention his Christian Louboutin ‘Mika On Stage’ sneakers, this look translated as more comical than cool.

Sophie Hunter In Erdem – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Sophie Hunter In Erdem - 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Benedict Cumberbatch and pregnant fiancée Sophie Hunter attended the 2015 Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 11) in Beverly Hills, California.

Since Sophie has come into the picture, I have to admit that for me she has stolen the spotlight from Benedict.

My eyes always fall straight to her.

On this occasion she looked gorgeous wearing another Erdem gown, this time a navy metallic floral jacquard gown from the Pre-Fall 2015 collection.

Styled with a complementary rouge lip and chic chignon, this lady is the only one who can rival Camila Alves in the best-dressed plus-one department.

Oh, and with regard to Benedict, the papa-to-be of course looked very handsome in a classic tux.
