Chris Hemsworth In John Varvatos – ’12 Strong’ World Premiere

Chris Hemsworth was front and center at the ’12 Strong’ world premiere on Tuesday (January 16) in New York City.

John Varvatos is a brand that unites old world craftsmanship and refined tailoring with modern innovations, and that’s very much what Chris is portraying here in his petrol blue suit.

Opting to go sans tie brought about some suave flair to his smart look, with a chunky timepiece and Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo Orlato’ shoes providing the finishing touch.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The gents have been making some dapper statements on the red carpet of late.

Bradley Cooper: The actor looked suave in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture and Louboutin shoes at IWC Schaffhausen’s Maison launch of its Jubilee Collection at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) on Tuesday (January 16). The velvet jacket and bow tie are a debonair combination with the blue in the watch adding some subtle colour.

Luke Evans: The actor joined Dakota Fanning at ‘The Alienist’ New York premiere on Tuesday (January 16). The subtle pinstripe in his Polo Ralph Lauren suit played off the pale blue shirt. There is something slightly off with the jacket. Methinks a single breasted style would have suited him better.

James Marsden: Also at IWC Schaffhausen’s Maison launch of its Jubilee Collection, the actor looked dashing in a slim navy suit and Louboutin shoes. The soft weave on the fabric could have come across as messy, but its sharp finish speaks to a master tailor.

2018 NAACP Image Awards Menswear Roundup

A handful of suave men joined the ladies for the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California.

Marcus Scribner: From the wide wing of the metallic accent lapels on this Grayscale velvet tuxedo, to the gold embellished slippers, you would never accuse the look of lacking flair.

Chadwick Boseman: The actor dressed up in a Prada suit that got a boost of decorative appeal from contrast lapels and matching dark Christian Louboutin loafers.

Algee Smith: Bare chest and bare ankles, Algee turned up the heat by skipping the shirt and socks.

Tom Hiddleston In Gucci & Eddie Redmayne In Burberry – ‘Early Man’ London Premiere

Tom Hiddleston and Eddie Redmayne were in attendance at the ‘Early Man’ London premiere on Sunday (January 14).

Tom Hiddleton: The actor’s beard will undoubtedly be the focus, but he looked suave in a navy Gucci suit. He kept things classic with the pale blue shirt and red speckled tie. The brown shoes were another debonair addition.

Eddie Redmayne: It’s easy to think that the actor is at a different event given that his Burberry look is much more casual. I think the duffle jacket would typically be better suited to a photocall, but I am making allowances as this is a family-centric premiere for an animated film and the look works with Maisie Williams’ Coach number. It’s a shame that the layers and his hair weren’t a bit neater.

Chanel’s Mademoiselle Privé Exhibition Opening

The CHANEL ‘Mademoiselle Privé’ exhibition opening event was held in Hong Kong on Thursday (January 11), with some of the brand’s biggest fans wearing their chicest CHANEL looks.

Pharrell Williams: The CHANEL ambassador and face of the ‘Gabrielle’ bag performed during the event. But, before taking to the stage, he was on the red carpet with wife, Helen Lasichanh, donning a dark-blue knitted pullover styled with a blue cap—both from the Métiers d’Art Paris-Hambourg 2017/18 collection. As can be expected with a Pharrell look, it was really his styling that brought even more personality. The ripped jeans being the rebellious twist, with CHANEL boots and accessories including a CHANEL Fine Jewelry ‘Plume’ brooch rounding out the look with plenty of flair.

Helen Lasichanh: Coordinating with her rapper hubby, Helen wore a dark-navy knitted mini dress from the Métiers d’Art Paris-Hambourg 2017/18 collection. She styled the super-short look with necessary tonal tights and CHANEL tall boots alongside a white CHANEL handbag and CHANEL Fine Jewelry ‘Coco Crush’ earrings.

Kaia Gerber: The perfect combination of sweet innocence and sultry sass, this short white Spring 2018 dress was the embodiment of girly allure. I love the modern juxtaposition between the ruffled lace and the sleek, embroidered sequins. CHANEL clear boots added a quirky, style-forward finish to the look.

The National Board Of Review Annual Awards Gala Menswear Roundup

A trio of men joined Angelina Jolie, Julianna Margolies, Saoirse Ronan, and Lupita Nyong’o among others at The National Board Of Review Annual Awards Gala on Tuesday (January 9) in New York City.

Timothée Chalamet: On some other guys, the tie on this Thom Browne gray suit would have taken me straight to the corporate office. But, the young actor manages to pull it off with his quirky panache, given the intentionally cropped proportions of the suiting.

Armie Hammer: This Brunello Cucinelli ensemble was another sharp look for the actor. What I loved the most was how smartly the baby-blue shirt and floral pin brought out his eyes. It was also a first-class lesson in how crisp and polished a menswear look can be without a tie.

Daniel Kaluuya: Speaking of no ties, Daniel was just as sleekly handsome in his dark Burberry suit styled with a solid use of a turtleneck. The pocket square also infused this look with so much personality.

‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ LA Premiere Menswear Roundup

In addition to Billie Lourd, Lea Michele, and Penelope Cruz, a trio of men were on the red carpet for the LA premiere of FX’s ‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ on Monday (January 6) in Hollywood, California.

Edgar Ramirez: I always love to see a man colour outside the lines of a standard black suit, and this aubergine number fit the bill. Part of me was wishing for a slightly livelier tie, though, rather than this tonal, brown-ish version.

Darren Criss: The style-forward decorative impact of this abstract floral Emporio Armani jacket cannot be denied. It added such a snazzy, luxe twist on Darren’s sleek black look.

Ricky Martin: Suave with a scarf, the Latin entertainer showed how hot cool navy tones can be.
