Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood MAN – ‘The Hangover Part III’ Paris Premiere

Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood MAN - ‘The Hangover Part III’ Paris Premiere

Bradley Cooper joined co-star Heather Graham on the red carpet at the Cinema UGC Normandie in France for the Paris premiere of ‘The Hangover III’ or, as they call it in France, ‘Very Bad Trip 3’.

The actor, who appears to be growing his beard out again, wore a Vivienne Westwood MAN suit.

His two-button charcoal suit styled with a white dress shirt and black tie was accessorized with tan lace-up shoes, when black would’ve been the more obvious choice.

Should he have gone with the obvious choice?

Tom Hiddleston In Alexander McQueen – ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Tom Hiddleston In Alexander McQueen - 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Premiere

Tom Hiddleston joined Tilda Swinton at the Palais des Festival in France yesterday afternoon for the Cannes Film Festival photocall for their new movie, ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ where he wore a cool-blue three-piece suit styled with a white pocket square, white open shirt and brown shoes.

By night he changed into yet another slick suit for the premiere, opting for an Alexander McQueen single breasted suit styled with a white shirt, black tonal skull bow tie and patent leather shoes.

Both looks were appropriate for the occasion. The cool-blue suit worked wonderfully with the French Riviera in the back drop and the McQueen suit befitted the formal occasion and fit to perfection.

We have seen so many great suits this week, it will be hard to pick a favourite.

amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS Menswear Round Up

amfar men 2

There were many lovely ladies at the amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS yesterday evening. Here is a look at the men.

Adrien Brody: The actor wore a Roberto Cavalli tuxedo. I love everything about this look. Looking very debonair, Adrien donned a white tuxedo jacket with a black satin shawl collar, styled with shiny black pants and a unique white-and-black shirt, topped off with Cavalli loafers. Even those of you who don’t love shiny suits can’t help but admire this amazing suit.

Andres Velencoso: The Spanish model, aka Kylie Minogue’s boyfriend, also opted for a Cavalli suit. This classic look, with a black satin shawl collar and bow tie, was styled with patent-leather shoes.

Jeremy Renner: The actor looked very handsome wearing a one-button Lanvin tuxedo with black satin peak lapels, a white cotton dress shirt, a black satin bow tie, a white cotton pocket square, and black patent-leather lace-up dress shoes.

Zachary Quinto: The ‘Star Trek’ actor wore a black Giorgio Armani tuxedo. The classic look featured a black satin shawl collar – the menswear trend of the night – and a satin trim along his trousers.

Even though I love all four looks for being so well tailored and fitted, Adrien’s unique take totally wins me over.

Zachary Quinto In Alexander McQueen – ‘All Is Lost’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Zachary Quinto In Alexander McQueen - 'All Is Lost' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Zachary Quinto attended the ‘All is Lost’ Cannes Film Festival premiere in France yesterday evening.

The ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ actor is known for his snappy red carpet looks; that continued on this occasion with his head-to-toe Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 look.

At first glance you might write this off as just a typical double-breasted tuxedo; however, the devil is in the detail.

His tuxedo jacket features satin jacquard lapels, and his white dress shirt is accented with a polka-skull bow tie.

Zachary’s polished look was completed with black double-monk-strap shoes.

Even when he goes classic, there’s still a quirk.

‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere Menswear Round Up

‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere Menswear Round Up

‘The Great Gatsby’ stars Joel Edgerton and Tobey Maguire were on the carpet for their film’s Australia premiere in Sydney on Wednesday.

Joel Edgerton: Even when half his outfit is drenched, Joel makes it look good. He wore an Ermenegildo Zegna grey two-button notch-lapel jacket along with a pair of grey trousers. The light grey was a suitable colour and it looked good with the brown shoes and purple tie.

Tobey Maguire: Keeping his slim silhouette, Tobey opted for a well-cut Saint Laurent navy gabardine suit. It fit well, though the pants bunched up a bit by the ankles. He kept the look subtle with a white Dylan-collar shirt and a black silk tie.

Both actors kept their looks simple. I liked Joel’s because of the shoes and the coloured tie, however, Tobey’s gabardine suit was able to withstand the downpour.

‘The Hangover III’ London Premiere Menswear Round Up

'The Hangover III' London Premiere Menswear Round Up

The wolf pack showed up at The Empire Cinema in London for the UK premiere of ‘The Hangover III’ on Wednesday. Most of the suits and accents featured shades of blue, but some of the men wore them better than others.

Bradley Cooper: In a Ferragamo custom-made navy three-piece suit, Bradley stunned. Shorter pants would have made this an absolutely impeccable look, though the fit of the waistcoat and jacket, along with the french-cuff shirt and patterned tie, looked so great the pants aren’t even that noticeable.

Zach Galifianakis: The comedian had the right idea with a plaid-patterned suit, but it all just fit so poorly. The waistcoat was a size too small and the pants too long. I’m not a big fan of such hefty boots on the red carpet in the summer either. I like the pale-orange shirt, though.

Justin Bartha: Pinstripes signify power and Justin wore them well in an Etro grey shadow-stripe suit. He did some good pattern mixing in this outfit, combining stripes with a grey-and-blue square-pattern shirt and a paisley tie. He also added a colorful pocket square. This was my favourite look due to the bold pattern mixing.

Cannes Film Festival Menswear Round Up

Cannes Mens Tuesday

Tuesday premieres during Cannes Film Festival included ‘Cleopatra’ and ‘Behind the Candelabra’, making way for appearances from some actors we haven’t seen in a while and others who have solid red carpet résumés.

Chris Tucker: For the premiere of ‘Cleopatra’ on Tuesday, Chris wore an unbuttoned white dinner jacket similar to the one he wore to the Independent Spirit Awards in February. It’s no secret he’s partial to overly wide lapels, so it was no surprise to see large shawl lapels. He paired the jacket with black pants that could have been slimmed down a bit, a white shirt, and a black bow tie. I love how he selected a jacket to complement his lovely plus one, Azja Pryor.

Adrien Brody: Along with his beautiful date Lara Lieto, Adrien arrived to the ‘Cleopatra’ premiere in a suave black notch-lapel Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo. It fit well, like most suits Adrien wears, and he even added a black-faced Bulgari watch to accent the tux. He finished the look off with a white shirt and black bow tie.

Christoph Waltz: Christoph donned a well-cut black Prada tuxedo for the ‘Behind the Candelabra’ premiere. It fit in all the right places. The shawl lapels and bow tie gave it a little more class. The ease with which Christoph is able to pull off his tux made this my favourite look, just ahead of Adrien.
