Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

While tasteless was the dominant trend at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday night (May 17), I was grateful to see that a few good men brought some class back to the show. Here, a look at some of the Billboard styles plus a look at the latest round of gentleman at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

Matthew McConaughey: His terribly scruffy beard had no place this glossy Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit at ‘The Sea of Trees’ premiere, which he attended with Naomi Watts during the Cannes Film Fest on Saturday (May 16). The nightshade hue of his jacket was divine though. Will the facial hair ever meet a razor.

Nick Jonas
: Also rocking an inspiring eggplant shade, Nick looked mighty fine in his monochromatic Kenzo suit at the Billboard Music Awards, although the pants could have been less slouchy and rumpled. His plus one, Olivia Culpo, was among the girls in sparkly, skin-baring attire, hers a black Elie Saab playsuit that still ranked as more tasteful than some of the other sartorial tragedies of the night.

Colin Farrell In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘The Lobster’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Colin Farrell In Dolce & Gabbana - ‘The Lobster’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Colin Farrell joined Rachel Weisz and Lea Seydoux for ‘The Lobster’ photocall during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival this afternoon (May 15) in Cannes, France.

The Irish actor was looking mighty fine in his Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit; rendered in a breezy light-grey hue. I found this look so very refreshing in light of all the black we have seen during photocalls today.

I love how this look is timelessly elegant, and with Colin’s sartorial styling the look has a very debonair feel.

"Mad Max: Fury Road" Photocall - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival
The stars of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ were at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival for the photocall and premiere of the film on Thursday (May 14) in Cannes, France, where the two British studs coordinated their looks to handsome effect.

Tom Hardy: Standing with Charlize Theron by his side at the photocall, Tom wore a monochromatic Alexander McQueen suit with matching dress shirt that worked out to be a likeable look for him. The partially unbuttoned shirt, necklace, and buzz cut of course hinted at his bad-boy charm.

Nicholas Hoult: Also dressed in a navy colour scheme for the photocall, the actor wore his Dior Homme suit with laidback ease, likewise skipping the tie but adding another layer of polish with a crisp white dress shirt, pocket square, and black loafers. He should always wear blue, given its effect on his piercing eyes.

Cannes Film Festival Menswear Roundup
It was hard to remove my gaze from the breathtaking gowns at on the first day, Wednesday (May 13), of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, but a handful of menswear looks were worthy of mention.

Xavier Dolan: The French-Canadian actor cut a striking profile in his blue Louis Vuitton double-breasted suit paired with a black-and-white chequered sweater. It’s a perfect look for the Jury photocall, as it projects a coolly suave edge without even trying. You may remember that the suit was previously worn by Michiel Huisman.

John Legend: Attending the opening ceremony and premiere of ‘La Tete Haute,’ the singer couldn’t have looked more handsome in his traditional black Gucci tuxedo, making a solid argument for the power of a classic tux worn in superior fashion.

Jake Gyllenhaal: The actor was also at the opening ceremony and premiere and likewise catching plenty of stares for being well-dressed in a dark Tom Ford tuxedo and bow tie, even if I also like to see him in blues to bring out his steely stare.

Nicholas Hoult & Tom Hardy In Alexander McQueen – ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ LA Premiere

Nicholas Hoult  & Tom Hardy In Alexander McQueen - ‘Mad Max Fury Road’ LA Premiere

Nicholas Hoult and Tom Hardy joined a host of lovely ladies including Charlize Theron and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the premiere of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ at TCL Chinese Theatre on Thursday (May 7) in Hollywood, California.

Both British actors, as if by coincidence, wore Alexander McQueen.

Nicholas Hoult: Burgundy is fast becoming the new alternative to black and navy. I like how this wholesome debonair look was styled with a pattern tie, but its his blue eyes which are the most striking feature here.

Tom Hardy: Even with the buzz cut and overgrown facial hair, Tom’s Alexander McQueen look is still focused on sharp precision and impeccable tailoring.
