Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Oscars menThe Oscars 2014 on Sunday (March 2), and the ensuing soirees, were a fashion feast for the senses, with high-wattage gowns swishing at every glam turn. But the men provided plenty of eye candy, as well, as they suited up in their sartorial best for the stylish super-event at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California followed by the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

Matthew McConaughey: The ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ Best Actor winner not only delivered a compelling acceptance speech, he also was convincingly decked out in a Dolce & Gabbana suit, Louboutin shoes and Chopard cufflinks. Always surprising us with his wild-card jackets, this one was a crispy ivory number, which he handsomely sported with a black vest, white button-down, black trousers and bowtie.

Bradley Cooper: Looking ever so dapper in a black Tom Ford tuxedo, paired with a black bow tie and Chopard cufflinks, the ‘American Hustle’ star and Best Supporting Actor nominee wore a side of handsome scruff with his classic ensemble

Pharrell Williams: Well, he wasn’t wearing the colossal hat, but the ‘Happy’ singer and nominee still turned heads with his cutoffs. The custom head-to-toe Lanvin look featured a black wool shawl-collar, one-button tuxedo with matching shorts, a white tuxedo shirt with ivory pearl buttons, a black satin bowtie and dark gray hand-polished calfskin derbies (sans socks, natch).  Yay or nay?

Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014 Menswear Roundup 1With a myriad of menswear looks on the blue carpet, the guys mostly nixed the standard black suit in favour of more colourful options at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California yesterday (March 1). Not that I was complaining.

Matthew McConaughey: Taking his flashy jackets to another level, the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ actor and Best Male Lead winner wore an allover metallic bronze three-piece suite by Dolce & Gabbana. Skipping the tie, an unbuttoned black button-down shirt had nothing on those attention-grabbing, cobalt-blue Tod’s shoes. Do you like the razzle-dazzle here?

Jared Leto: Like Matthew, Jared picked up a win for his work in ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’ The actor-musician was dressed in his standard rocker-grunge edge wearing separates including a black leather biker Balmian Homme jacket and black skinny jeans. Of course, a shirt was tied around his waist—this time, a red plaid Saint Laurent one—and he topped off the look with a black-and-white striped scarf and black Giuseppe Zanotti combat boots.

Michael B Jordan: The always-sharp dresser didn’t disappoint in his cream-coloured Dolce & Gabbana suit, paired with a quirky printed button-down shirt, a black pocket square, black brogues and a rose-gold Piaget watch. The ‘Fruitvale Station’ actor always manages to combine sartorial polish with a punch of attitude.

ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon Menswear Roundup

There were a few guys who took to the red carpet for the 7th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon at Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday (February 27) in Beverly Hills, California.

David Oyelowo: The British actor, who wore Ted Baker London for his last red carpet appearance, donned the British brand again. When I asked why, he said “Off the rack just works. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” I then enquired about his black floral brooch. He told me he was wearing it in support of ‘My Brother’s Keeper’, an initiative which helps disenfranchised black and Hispanic youths which was brought into effect by President Obama that day.

Common: The rapper was super cool, as you would imagine. He wore a Paul Smith blue suit with a white shirt and grey tie.

Michael Ealy: The actor pretended not to know what all the fuss was about when women were swooning over him at the event. I would’ve perhaps swooned myself had he opted for a suit with a better fit, like David and Common.

Mens 27 Feb

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Adrien Brody: Joining Saoirse Ronan on the red carpet for’The Grand Budapest Hotel’ New York premiere on Wednesday (February 26), Adrien made quite a splash on the red carpet wearing a shiny Dolce & Gabbana three-piece red suit with an open white shirt and black shoes. It’s not often we see men don this colour on the red carpet, but if one man can pull off a shiny red suit, it’s Adrien Brody.

Michael B. Jordan: The actor attended the Vanity Fair and FIAT Celebration of ‘Young Hollywood’ on Tuesday (February 25) wearing a perfectly fitted Dior Homme two-button notch-lapel Prince of Wales check suit, a grey-and-blue windowpane-plaid check shirt and a navy-blue-and-burgundy pinstripe wool tie. All the elements work, blending together to create yet another BDOTW-worthy look.

Jeremy Renner: On Saturday (February 22) Jeremy attended the Costume Designer Guild Awards, where the actor wore an Ermenegildo Zegna Couture classic tuxedo while presenting an award to Amy Adams. There’s nothing quirky about this outfit, and that’s okay. Opting for a classic tux is sometimes the best way to go.

NAACP Awards MenNot to be left out, a group of handsome guys also took to the red carpet at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Saturday (February 22).

Michael B. Jordan: Consistently a style stud, the ‘Fruitvale Station’ actor and nominee kept up his winning fashion streak in an all-black look, donning a Dior Homme single-button, peak-lapel tuxedo with a cotton, button-down shirt and silk bow tie. He finished the look with his go-to Piaget timepiece and Christian Louboutin ‘New Platers’ flats. Even though there’s just one shade at play here, this sleek entrance is far from dull.

Tony Goldwyn: The ‘Scandal’ actor, who presented co-star Kerry Washington with her Outstanding Actress award, stayed in traditional sartorial territory with his slightly shiny black suit, white button-down and black tie.

Idris Elba: Looking as sharp as ever, the ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ actor and nominee paired his well-fitted black tux and bow tie with Christian Louboutin ‘Dada’ flats and a great pair of glasses.

Brit Awards men 1The Brit Awards 2014 on Wednesday (February 19) certainly brought some colourful, if not questionable, entrances from the starlets who crowded the O2 Arena in London, England. Not leaving the fashion fun to just the ladies, a crush of guys also flexed their sartorial strength.

Pharrell Williams: Yet again leaving his hat trick for another day, the entertainer returned to his favoured designer with this Lanvin charcoal-grey, lamé-effect two-button suit from the Hiver 2014 Pre-Collection. He paired the high-shine suit with a white tuxedo shirt with pearl buttons and a black satin bow tie, capping off the look with black patent leather derbies sans socks. Of course, he pulled his signature style move by rolling his pants into a cropped length to complete this cool-kid look.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper gave us his dapper best in a Dolce & Gabbana two-tone champagne and charcoal-grey ensemble, featuring a textured, dotted blazer and vest and cropped trousers. He wore the suit with a printed grey tie, white shirt and socks-less black loafers. Did you like his mixing and matching?
