2015 Met Gala Menswear Roundup

Met Men Matt

With the tidal wave of gowns and tonnes of sparkling embellishment at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), the guys’ looks were a handsome, albeit less extravagant, accessory to the girls. Rather than attempting to accomplish the Chinese theme, some of the men reverted to safer, traditional tux territory while others bravely went in the direction of the East.

Robert Pattinson: This is the Robert Pattinson I like to see—polished and handsome without losing his edgy, bad-boy charm. His elegant Dior Homme three-piece tuxedo was one of my favourite men’s looks of the night.

James Marsden: The actor infused another layer into his Ermenegildo Zegna ensemble, elevating the look with a cream jacket paired with a white tuxedo shirt and black trousers.

Matt Bomer: Showing off the power of the classics, he was dapper in a dark Giorgio Armani suit and bow tie popped with the hint of colour in his pocket square.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Before we close the week, here is a final look at the menswear options we have been blessed with courtesy of these fine gentlemen.

Michiel Huisman: ‘The Age of Adaline’ actor promoted his new movie on ‘Good Morning America’ the day after his co-star Blake Lively. Creating a splash in a much more muted manner, he donned a blue Salvatore Ferragamo look, which was utterly timeless and steeped in a suavity guaranteed to make me swoon. The look was complete with Lucchese Fico tan boots.

Michael B Jordan: The actor was looking as sharp as ever, going the extra mile by spicing up his look with a graphic print Public School blazer, while attending the 2015 CinemaCon ‘Pioneer of the Year’ dinner alongside Kate Mara. If this print is giving you a case of déjà vu, that’s because Hilary Duff owns a coat by the same designer with the same print.

Armie Hammer: Also going down the sleek Salvatore Ferragamo route for the CinemaCon 2015, the actor had an immaculately tailored moment working shades of grey with a hint of blue and brown for good measure. Shame about the beard though.

Olivia Wilde In Christian Dior – ‘Sleeping With Other People’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Olivia Wilde In Christian Dior - 'Sleeping With Other People' Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis attended the premiere of ‘Sleeping With Other People’ during the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival at BMCC Tribeca PAC, on Tuesday (April 21) in New York City.

Olivia Wilde: The actress continues her dominance on the red carpet during this festival, wearing another Dior look from the Pre-Fall 2015 collection. I love the futuristic vibe of this look imbued by the black sequin high neck top. Olivia has been so masterful in delivering a selection of looks, each one more intriguing than the last.

Jason Sudeikis: The actor does love a windowpane suit and I can see why, when the fabrication mixed with the traditional construction speaks of nothing but sartorial elegance.

‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ London Premiere Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

‘The Avengers Age Of Ultron’ London Premiere Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

A trio of handsome counterparts joined Scarlett Johansson and Elizabeth Olsen for ‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ premiere at Westfield on Tuesday (April 21) in London, England.

Chris Hemsworth: The actor, who was BDOTW last week, was looking mighty fine again in a azure Calvin Klein Spring 2015 two-button notch lapel suit that nearly matched his eyes. I loved the striking yet simple pop of the Calvin Klein Spring 2015 royal-purple silk tie and stark white dress shirt. Brown Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ loafers rounded out the ensemble.

Chris Evans: Opting for a darker colour palette, Chris wore a Gucci three-piece plaid suit with a striped baby-blue button-down and brown tie. I wish the shirt had been a solid white in this case, but I do love that he seems to be wearing bright magenta socks.

Jeremy Renner: He and Chris Hemsworth were near mirror images of each other with similarly hued blue suits and the same Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ shoes. jeremy wore his look with a black dress shirt and tonal blue tie, avoiding complete matchy-matchy territory. However, I favour Chris’s lighter approach on this occasion.

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner was hosted at Balthazar in New York City on Monday (April 20), where the fashion house’s famous fans gathered to raise a toast.

Zoe Kravitz: While it was lovely to see the actress’s softer side in this Chanel ensemble consisting of a pink cropped sweater and flirty, flared patterned skirt, I simply couldn’t get past those white pumps.

Cobie Smulders: I loved Cobie’s Chanel outing which artfully combined patterns in a painterly, watercolour top and tweed trousers. Her ‘Ladies First’ handbag put the final tongue-in-cheek zing into the look.

Michiel Huisman: He wore a navy Jack Wills suit and Haspel Clothing Hawaiian-print shirt with wife Tara Elders in an army-green dress and black shoulder bag. While it’s hard to argue with the actor’s handsome gaze, I simply don’t understand this island-inspired look on this occasion.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup 20 april

Here is a quick menswear roundup from this weekend’s events.

Michiel Huisman: Joining his ‘The Age of Adaline’ co-star Blake Lively for the New York premiere, the ‘Game of Thrones’ actor smouldered on the red carpet, wearing an off-white Thom Sweeney suit which was not only perfect for the warm season, but would’ve also made him stand out from fellow male attendees in sombre dark sets. I love how this look has a smart and crisp appeal. After just a few red carpet looks, Michiel has already put himself in contention for BDMOTY.

Nick Jonas: The singer was the stand out attendee the ACM Awards, working a smart-casual look incorporating a western-inspired suede Prada jacket. I can’t say I love the look, as the jacket feels too heavy, but I constantly admire Nick’s dedication to keep things interesting on the red carpet.
