Here is a quick look at some of the fellas on the red carpet from this evening’s (February 18) Elle Style Awards 2014 held at London’s One Embankment.
Pharrell Williams: Not picking up the Best Dressed Man of the Year (although he should have) the musician was happy with his International Recording Artist of the Year award. No surprise that he’s wearing his go-to designer Alber Elbaz; wearing a head-to-toe Lanvin Pre-Fall 2014 look consisting of a black leopard effect tuxedo blazer with satin peak lapels, and black-and-green two-tone cropped trousers. His white cotton tuxedo shirt with accented pearl buttons and styled with a signature black bow-tie, with black leather derbies rounding out his look. Thank god he left his Vivienne Westwood Mountain hat at home.
Tinie Tempah: The British rapper continues his epic run this week, attending his third fashion-related event in as many days. On this occasion to collect his UK Recording Artist Of The Year award you could see him from a mile away wearing a manly magenta Dolce & Gabbana double breasted suit, styled with a black bow-tie and loafers, obviously. It’s a bold look. Not many dudes would even attempt to pull it off, but I gotta say he makes it work, even though I am not a fan of shiny suits.
Eddie Redmayne: Our Best Dressed Man of 2013 was one of the presenters on the night. He didn’t let us down looking very dapper wearing a Gucci black one button peak lapel Marseille tuxedo with a white evening shirt, black silk bow tie and black patent leather lace ups. His beautiful plus one, Hannah Bagshawe, was also decked out in Gucci Pre-Fall 2013.
Brad Pitt: The actor wore a Valentino tuxedo styled with a black bow-tie. Frankly, I prefer Angelina’s look over his. I don’t get the collarless shirt.
Jared Leto attended The Hollywood Reporter’s Nominee Party held at Spago on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California.
Giving us snazzy jacket number 2 in a row, the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ actor wore a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2013 silver shiny technical silk-blend one-button tuxedo jacket emphasised with a black grosgrain shawl collar and styled with a black open shirt and matching trousers.
Looking as sharp as ever, I’m hoping his black fedora is not a sign that Jared will graduate to more ridiculous styles of headwear, as sported by Pharrell Williams recently.
Here is a quick roundup of some of the fellas taking to the red carpet.
Joel Kinnaman: Joining his lovely girlfriend Olivia Munn on the red carpet, the actor has gone from black, to maroon, to blue, wearing a well-tailored Armani suit styled with a black tie, white shirt, tie pin and Kurt Geiger London ‘Hornton’ shoes. With each look I find myself loving his style.
Bradley Cooper: Joining a host of lovely ladies for the Academy Awards nominee luncheon in L.A. yesterday, Bradley opted to go tieless, wearing a Ralph Lauren Black Label black windowpane-check suit with an open white shirt.
Jared Leto attended the 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California.
The handsome actor wore a mostly black Saint Laurent look featuring a stand-out gold lame jacket.
It looks as if he and his ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ co-star Matthew McConaughey share a love for snazzy jackets. I wonder who inspired whom?
Jared’s styling deserves some extra credit as he added a pink pocket square (quite an usual choice), striped socks and black crystal Louis Leeman loafers.
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves attended the 86th Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California.
Matthew McConaughey: Saving his snazzy jackets perhaps for the main event, the actor donned a beige Hugo Boss two-button suit styled with an open black shirt. I would have preferred a white shirt for a fresher look, considering it was a daytime event, but he would have looked good either way.
Camila Alves: The TV presenter once again showed love for Dolce & Gabbana, wearing a slightly retro feeling pale-rose brocade dress, with crystal-embellishment adding a girlish touch. Martin Katz jewelry, pretty pink pointy pumps and a side-swept braid rounded out her look. My only issue was perhaps the dress was a tad too snug in the hip area.
