Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

men 10 oct

Here is a look at two smart gents who took to the red carpet yesterday evening (October 9).

Ansel Elgort: The young actor joined Kaitlyn Dever for the ‘Men, Women & Children’ London premiere. This is taking it up a level. Working a strong graphic-print look from Dior Homme, I love those black calfskin strapped derbies with black and white rubber soles which give this look the cool flourish it deserved. Very well played.

Jeremy Renner: The ‘Bourne Legacy’ actor joined Mary Elizabeth Winstead on the red carpet for the ‘Kill The Messenger’ New York screening wearing a more classic look from Dolce & Gabbana. The pinstriped midnight-blue three-piece suit with a petrol-blue tie is tailored to perfection to allow Jeremy to stand out in the most sophisticated way possible.

Kaitlyn Dever In Andrew Gn – ‘Men, Women & Children’ London Premiere

Kaitlyn Dever In Andrew Gn - 'Men, Women & Children' London Premiere

Kaitlyn Dever attended the ‘Men, Women & Children’ premiere held at Odeon Covent Garden on Thursday (October 9) in London, England.

Admittedly, I didn’t know much about the young American actress; it was her stunning Andrew Gn Resort 2015 gown which caught my eye, bringing some sunshine to a dark and wet night in London.

It’s a lot of dress and a lot of print; however, she carries the look off very confidently, owning it and not being overwhelmed by it.

I love that even with the expansive print, the look still features floral appliqués around the bodice which really bring the print to life.

This more than deserves a spot on the BDOTW list. Do you agree?

Hilary Swank In Nicholas Oakwell Couture – ‘You’re Not You’ LA Premiere

Hilary Swank In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - 'You're Not You' LA Premiere

Hilary Swank attended the premiere of ‘You’re Not You’ held at the Vanguard Theatre on Wednesday (October 8) in Los Angeles, California following the Hollywood Costume luncheon.

Going from one extreme to another, this time she served up a look which I can only term classic Hilary.

Oozing with class and feminine sophistication, I love the floral appliqués adorning her strapless white Nicholas Oakwell Spring 2014 Couture dress, which is tailored precisely to nip her in at the waist.

Both the silver-metallic Gianvito Rossi ‘Ellipsis’ pumps and a matching clutch help fend off the hear-comes-the-bride vibe about this look, with tumbling waves rounding out her inch-perfect look.

Emmy Rossum In Altuzarra – ‘You’re Not You’ LA Premiere

Emmy Rossum In Altuzarra - 'You're Not You' LA Premiere

Emmy Rossum attended the premiere of ‘You’re Not You’ held at the Vanguard Theatre on Wednesday (October 8) in Los Angeles, California.

As you know, I’m rarely moved by an LBD, but this – this is everything.

Trust Emmy Rossum to be the one to make me swoon over this breathtaking Altuzarra Resort 2015 fitted crepe frock with velvet sleeves, a sexy side slit and an open back.

Factor in the Jimmy Choo ‘Escape’ strappy sandals, those Chopard amethyst and peridot earrings, those plump red lips and her glossy wavy tresses and you’ll find me head over heels in love with this look.

My girl never lets me down.

James Marsden In Thom Sweeney – ‘The Best Of Me’ LA Premiere

James Marsden In Thom Sweeney - 'The Best Of Me'  LA Premiere

James Marsden joined his beautiful co-star Michelle Monaghan on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘The Best Of Me’ held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on Tuesday (October 7) in Los Angeles, California.

Bringing menswear back to the forefront, the actor makes us swoon in his Thom Sweeney notched-lapel cool-blue suit, which brings out those baby-blue eyes.

It’s not just the colour of the suit that should be admired, but also the sleek styling, consisting of a striped shirt, grey tie and Givenchy shoes.

While Eddie Redmayne is probably the front runner for best-dressed man of the year, I would say James should also be in consideration for his consistency and ability to always impress with something new.

Jena Malone In Valentino – ‘St. Vincent’ New York Premiere

Jena Malone In Valentino - 'St Vincent' New York Premiere

For a third night in a row Jena Malone was on the red carpet, this time for the New York premiere of ‘St. Vincent’ held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Monday (October 6) in New York City.

The actress wore a sweet Valentino Resort 2015 short-sleeved leather frock accented with red and white lace.

If you were expecting a pair of safe Louboutins you don’t know Jena very well; she instead donned a pair of Tamara Mellon red mid-calf boots, spicing up the look further with an Edie Parker ‘Lara’ clutch.

Do you like Jena’s styling or should she have toned it down?
