‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ London Premiere Menswear Round Up

GI JOE London premiere menswear

The much-anticipated sequel ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ had its London premiere at Empire Leicester Square on Monday evening.

Channing Tatum: For the carpet, Channing sported a Gucci charcoal notch-lapel Marseille suit with a blue dress shirt. He styled the suit with a blue-and-brown striped tie and black leather lace ups. I loved the tie, but it’s the creased shirt and long pants that bother me. His pants fit well at the Oscars when he wore Gucci last so this is a bit of a let down.

Byung-hun Lee: The South Korean actor ditched the suit and showed up in a cool, casual outfit. It consisted of a black leather motorcycle jacket, black denim pants, and a pair of black leather boots. Underneath the jacket, Byung-hun dressed up his outfit with a white shirt and a black tie. I like the look, and props to Byung-hun for knowing how clothes are meant to fit, but I don’t think it’s completely appropriate for a film premiere.

Dwayne Johnson: Formerly known as The Rock, the professional wrestler turned actor arrived on the carpet looking less than stellar, to put it nicely. His navy three-piece suit looked as if it was straight off the rack. No part of it fits the way it should.

D.J. Cotrona: Looking very dapper in a black notch lapel suit, D.J. donned my favourite look of the four. It’s tailored to perfection and the 32-year-old actor wore it well. He added a white pocket square, a white shirt, and a silver tie. My only gripe with the outfit is that I would have preferred a slimmer tie. Not a skinny tie, but a narrow tie.

Natalie Dormer In Roland Mouret – ‘Game of Thrones’ LA Premiere

Natalie Dormer In Roland Mouret - ‘Game of Thrones’ LA Premiere

Natalie Dormer joined Emilia Clarke on the red carpet at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Monday evening in Hollywood, California for the ‘Game of Thrones’ LA premiere.

The sometimes-brunette – but on this occasion, blonde – actress wore a Roland Mouret Spring 2013 halter dress.

Opting not to wear the black runway belt with her tri-colour black-green-and-white dress, she styled her sexy fitted frock with simple black Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps and gold dangling earrings.

This isn’t the first time this dress has taken to the red carpet; in fact, it is the third. You may remember that Samantha Barks first wore the dress to the 2013 London Critics’ Circle Film Awards, followed by Karolina Kurkova on Jay Leno.

If I was Natalie, I would never wear a dress previously worn by Karolina Kurkova. No one can top her.

Emilia Clarke In Victoria Beckham – ‘Game of Thrones’ LA Premiere

Emilia Clarke In Victoria Beckham - ‘Game of Thrones’ LA Premiere

Emilia Clarke looked stunning when she took to the red carpet at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Monday in Hollywood, California for the ‘Game of Thrones’ LA premiere.

The British actress, who’s taking Hollywood by storm, wore a Victoria Beckham strapless gown – our third Victoria Beckham look of the week.

Her sea-blue silk-blend stretch-crepe gown is stunning in its simplicity, with a built-in corset guaranteeing a flawless silhouette.

To complement the black trims on the gown, she styled her look with a black satin Christian Louboutin clutch and peep-toe pumps.

Her raven glossy locks were centre-parted and swept back behind her ears, with smoky eyes and a Jacob & Co. diamond bracelet providing the finishing touches.

She’s come such a long way and looks nothing short of amazing.

Skipping the rain-soaked red carpet, Adrianne Palicki was captured inside the Empire Leicester Square where the ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ premiere was held in London this evening.

The actress, who has been nothing short of flawless during this promo tour, wore a Temperely London Resort 2013 gown.

Her elegant, understated double silk satin 1930’s inspired gown with a Swarovski crystal and bugle bead embroidered belt was styled with a complementary Jimmy Choo ‘Claire’ clutch.

Diamond earrings, kohl-rimmed eyes and a pretty pink lip colour to match her gown completed her look.

James Franco In Gucci – The Tonight Show with Jay Leno & ‘Spring Breakers’ LA Premiere

James Franco In Gucci

To support his new films ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ and ‘Spring Breakers,’ actor James Franco made two suited-up appearances on Thursday in California.

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno: Early in the evening, James was at the NBC Studio in Burbank, California making a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’ For this he wore a Gucci black signoria suit with notch lapels. James opted for a black-on-black look with his shirt and leather lace-up shoes. It wasn’t completely black, however, as he went with a navy tie to finish it off.

‘Spring Breakers’ LA Premiere: He later headed to Hollywood for the ‘Spring Breakers’ premiere. Sticking with Gucci, as always, James sported a navy, peak lapel signoria suit with a pale blue shirt underneath. To style the suit he wore a blue tie and black shoes.

James cleaned up well at both events. Both suits fit nicely and he didn’t choose to go with the short pants like he did in Hollywood last week. I liked both looks but my favourite was the black-on-black because I preferred the fit of the blazer.
