‘Fahrenheit 451’ New York Premiere

The ‘Fahrenheit 451’ New York premiere on Tuesday (May 8) featured some bold fashion statements.

Tessa Thompson: The ‘Westworld’ actress was yet another one to fall for the spell of an unlined Christian Dior dress. I’m sure many are bored of the revealing skirts. Just taking into account her outfit, there was an intriguing mood with the play of the prim collared style with the black undergarments. The dusty purple frock with rich burgundy shoes was unexpected but most striking.

Michael B. Jordan: The actor looked dashing in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. The subtle sheen and night sky blue of the suit were debonair. The touches of black added to the sharp finish, but the roll neck is making it veer towards being too wintery.

Sofia Boutella: Another one in a sheer style, she was clad in Alberta Ferretti Fall 2018. On the runway, the lighting didn’t make it look quite so naked, but on the red carpet we see just how revealing it is. It feels better suited to a performance piece.

2018 Met Gala Menswear Roundup

The men always have a bit more of a challenge when it comes to thematic dress, but here’s how they did at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Virgil Abloh: Right out of the gate, I loved seeing Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Men’s Collections wearing this preview of the upcoming Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2019 men’s collection. Bonus points that the creamy-white design played to the theme—with an urban twist in the sneakers.

Andrew Garfield: The actor introduced the thematic, crimson-red hue via this lush velveteen Tom Ford tuxedo.

Jared Leto: If there would be anyone to fully dress to theme, it would be Jared. In head-to-toe Gucci, he flaunted this custom design that offered up his interpretation of a saintly crown paired with priestly embroidered panels. The flamboyant suit itself we could have likely seen him in any day of the week.

Chadwick Boseman In Versace – 2018 Met Gala

Normally, we save the menfolk for their own roundup, but as per usual, Chadwick Boseman was back at it with another superlative look at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City; one that was worthy of its own dedicated post.

No better choice than Versace on an evening such as this, as Donatella Versace was a co-host and the label’s cross motif was made for the religiously focused theme.

I always love a cape, so I’ve been going crazy over the caped looks tonight. But, it’s a rare occasion that we see one worn in menswear—and worn so magnificently.

Leave it to Chadwick.

2018 GLAAD Media Awards

A range of stars were in attendance at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards, which were held over the weekend on Saturday (May 5) in New York City.

Lea Michele: The newly engaged star had her own fairy-tale moment in this Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2018 dress that provided a modern translation on princess glamour with the glinting, metallic bodice and shortened ball skirt. A braided updo was naturally the only way to complete the picture.

Tommy Dorfman: Never one to not push the envelope just a bit, Tommy matched his hair to his aubergine Calvin Klein Spring 2018 suit with more unorthodox detailing attributed to the singular panel detail on the white tank.

Alexis Bledel: I think what enchanted me most about Alexis’ J. Mendel Spring 2018 dress was how its shimmery aqua hue fully enhanced her striking eyes and fuchsia lip. More metallics came into play with her Emm Kuo clutch and silver Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Zaha’ sandals to top off the look that also had a cinematic, vintage flair.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

There were many dapper gentlemen on the red carpet cutting sharp figures in sleek suits.

Ryan Gosling: The actor joined Claire Foy on Wednesday (April 25) for the ‘First Man’ presentation at CinemaCon 2018. I was struck by the different references in the look with the soft red patterned shirt and dusty blue shoes playing off the pinstripes in the suit for a cohesive but still dynamic finish.

Tom Hiddleston: Lightening things up, the actor wore a Ralph Lauren Purple Label Hadley silk linen suit for an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on Tuesday (April 24) to promote ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ The light mauve jacket and trousers with pale blue shirt evokes spring with the clean lines enhancing the subtle shades. For a fresh look, I would have preferred gray shoes rather than brown boots.

Channing Tatum: Like the other gents, he elected to go without a tie when he attended ‘The Big Picture’ presentation on Tuesday (April 24) at CinemaCon 2018. Clad in Rag & Bone, he looked cool and confident. I like the idea of the different collar shape, but think he could have gotten away with something more substantial.

Sophie Hunter In Christian Dior – ‘Patrick Melrose’ LA Premiere

Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch were back on the red carpet for the premiere of Showtime’s ‘Patrick Melrose’ on Wednesday (April 25) in Los Angeles, California.

Benedict was looking as sharp as always with the steel blue nature of his suit making those baby blues pop, but I wasn’t so enamored with Sophie’s styling.

I do love the refined, simple nature of her red Dior dress styled with the Diorquake black leather belt, but the hat didn’t work for me.

Why?

Because I just don’t believe that Sophie would’ve picked this for herself. It doesn’t feel authentically Sophie, so therefore it’s hard for me to buy into it.

It worked on Amber Heard and Rihanna, but not in this instance.
