Pharrell Williams In Adidas & Chanel – 2015 Grammy Awards

Pharrell Williams In Adidas - 2015 Grammy Awards

Pharrell Williams wore two looks (or is that three?) during the 2015 Grammy Awards where he picked up two awards for ‘Best Pop Solo Performance’ and ‘Best Urban Contemporary Album’ on Sunday (February 8) in LA.

Red Carpet: There was quite a stir about Pharrell’s Adidas look, with some saying it was too casual. Did people forget that this was the Grammys? I love the look for it’s typically cool and sporty vibe, perfectly styled with shoes with grey accents. The unique thing about this outfit is that it looked grey but under flash light it photographed white. I think the stir should’ve been saved for his wife Helen Lasichanh in her Adidas onesie. Unless you’re in a bob-sleigh team or an Olympic athlete, this is not a great look.

Performance: For the performance of his hit single ‘Happy’ , the singer wore a custom Chanel head-to-toe look. While I love the fun effervescent spirit of the look, he did look like an extra from ‘Hotel Budapest’.

The New Z Zegna Hosted By Future

The New Z Zegna Hosted By Future

Ahead of New York Fashion Week, rapper Future hosted a Z Zegna pop-up space held at The Bowery on Tuesday (February 10) with Peter Facinelli and Joe Jonas in attendance.

I’m not always a fan of suits with sneakers, but both Future and the always-dapper Peter pull off their looks respectively without looking scruffy. I guess this is where the new Z Zegna man comes into play.

While the aforementioned gents worked patterns, and in Peter’s case colour, into their looks, Joe kept his simple, going for navy blue, which is always my preferred alternative to black.

2015 BAFTAs Menswear Roundup

BAFTA Men 1

The tuxes were out in force at the 2015 BAFTAs, hosted at The Royal Opera House on Sunday (February 8). Here, a look at the fine fellows on the red carpet.

David Beckham
: The always-handsome Becks wore an impeccable midnight-blue suit, well tailored and popped with a white pocket square and perfect bow tie. I love the added dimension of the deep indigo shade. He just wears clothes so well.

Tom Hiddleston: Looking suave, the actor wore a slim-fitting Alexander McQueen black tuxedo with a white evening shirt and black bow tie. Black onyx skull cufflinks added some subtle fashion edge to his classic outing.

Luke Evans: Also opting for a midnight-blue suit, Luke’s was an Ermenegildo Zegna piece, jazzed up with contrast black lapels and a black bow tie. He could have likely seen his reflection in his hyper-polished, patent shoes, in which case it should have told him that his pants were a fraction too slouchy.

Mark Ronson In Etro – Pre-GRAMMY Gala And Salute Honouring Martin Bandier

Mark Ronson In Etro - Pre-GRAMMY Gala And Salute Honouring Martin Bandier

Mark Ronson and Josephine de La Baume attended the Pre-GRAMMY Gala And Salute To Industry Icons honouring Martin Bandier on Saturday (February 7) in Los Angeles, California.

Even with the bright yellow hue Josephine wore, there was no upstaging Mark who spun classic menswear on its head wearing a traditional style of suit punctuated with an Etro Fall 2013 velvet paisley double-breasted jacket.

It’s a hard look to pull off; I think even the experimental David Oyelowo may shy away from this look, but Mark makes this work with relative ease.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

menswear

Here is a quick roundup of some gents who caught my eye on the red carpet this week.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor joined Keira Knightley for the ‘Imitation Game’ pre-BAFTA reception held at the ME Hotel on Thursday (February 5) in London, England, attending his first red carpet event this year without his glamorous plus one, Sophie Hunter. As we would expect, his classic suit was tailored to perfection. Once in a while I would like to see something other than black from Benedict, but he scrubs up so nicely that one can’t blame him for sticking to tried and true.

David Oyelowo: The British actor is yet to stick to safe black. He wore a dual-colour biscuit and black Dolce & Gabbana suit to the Virtuosos Awards at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. On some this would’ve been questionable, but on someone with his flair it works.

Ethan Hawke: For the American Riviera Awards ceremony, held during at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Thursday (February 5), Ethan selected a midnight-blue suit, which by his standards was quite sombre considering his love for colour.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup 3 feb

Here is a quick menswear roundup from the weekend and Monday evening.

Channing Tatum: The actor joined co-star Mila Kunis and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘Jupiter Ascending’ held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Monday (February 2) in Hollywood, California. Working a very smart tonal striped suit, the overall look is very refined.

Chris Hemsworth: The Australian actor was honoured at the 2015 G’Day USA Gala on Saturday (January 31), where he looked as handsome as ever in blue joining his wife Elsa Pataky on the red carpet. The suit look with laidback appeal was styled with a Bulgari timepiece.
