Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Mens 23 Oct

It was another busy night on the red carpet for the heroes of Hollywood. Here is a quick look at what they wore.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor joined Lupita Nyong’o for the opening of the Bally flagship store in London. Wearing a more casual look than we’ve seen from the usually suited and booted actor, this Bally look featuring a pinstriped blazer for added sharpness gets a rousing thumbs up from me.

Eddie Redmayne: Joining fellow Brit star Felicity Jones for the screening of their latest movie, ‘The Theory Of Everything’, the former model was decked out in Gucci once again, also working a semi-casual look. Donning a white dress shirt and camel ’60s sport trousers, the royal-blue plain-knit crew-neck sweater injects a touch of charm, with the sunglasses giving the look a cool finish.

Felicity Jones In Vintage Chanel & Paule Ka – ‘The Theory Of Everything’ New York Screening

Felicity Jones In Vintage Chanel & Paule Ka - 'The Theory Of Everything' New York Screening

Felicity Jones attended a screening of ‘The Theory Of Everything’ hosted by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in New York City on Tuesday (October 21).

Opting for a simple chic look, the British actress wore a grey vintage Chanel turtleneck sweater with black Paule Ka trousers.

I perhaps would’ve glossed over this look had it not been for the finer details, including the pointy collar, standout cuffs and bow accent on the trousers, giving this look an ultra-feminine flourish.

Styled with Manolo Blahnik ‘Campari’ Mary Jane patent-leather pumps, I love the modern-day Audrey Hepburn vibe I’m getting from this look.

Shailene Woodley In Temperley London – ‘White Bird In A Blizzard’ New York Screening

Shailene Woodley In Temperley London - 'White Bird In A Blizzard' New York Screening

Shailene Woodley attended the ‘White Bird In A Blizzard’ New York screening held at the Sunshine Landmark on Wednesday (October 15) in New York City.

The actress wore a Temperley London Spring 2015 navy look featuring a waistcoat and slim trousers styled with patent-leather flats.

We all know that Shailene often loves to rock this type of mannish look, and I love that she wears it, once again, so confidently on this occasion.

My only problem with this look is the black headband. My association with this headband is that it’s to be used when holding your hair back to wash your face or apply makeup, so, in my eyes, it gives Shailene’s look an unfinished feel.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lanvin – ‘Beyond The Lights’ Chicago International Film Festival Screening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lanvin - 'Beyond The Lights' Chicago International Film Festival Screening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended a screening of ‘Beyond The Lights’ at the 50th annual Chicago International Film Festival at the AMC River East 21 on Friday (October 10) in Chicago, Illinois.

The British actress wore a demurely elegant Lanvin Resort 2015 knee-length LBD spliced with a white bow detail at the neckline giving this sophisticated look a girlish flourish.

With that gorgeous face, chic updo and diamond jewels, the look didn’t need much else, so simple black pumps provided the finishing touch.

I love Gugu’s style. Simple, elegant, without a hint of trying too hard.

Mia Wasikowska In Chanel Couture – ‘Madame Bovary’ London Film Festival Screening

Mia Wasikowska In Chanel Couture - 'Madame Bovary' London Film Festival Screening

Mia Wasikowska joined Laura Carmichael on the red carpet for the screening of ‘Madame Bovary’ during the 58th BFI London Film Festival held at Odeon West End on Saturday (October 11) in London, England.

Usually I reserve my rights to judge any Chanel runway look until I see it on the red carpet, as the red carpet look is usually much more preferable; sadly, that is not the case on this occasion.

Mia breathes no life into this metallic-silver Chanel Spring 2014 Couture futuristic-style dress which creates the illusion of a tiny waist.

I don’t even feel the black pumps are to blame here; perhaps it’s the hair and makeup bringing down the look, or that she simply lacks presence.

Does this look work for you?

Laura Carmichael In Erdem – ‘Madame Bovary’ London Film Festival Screening

Laura Carmichael In Erdem - 'Madame Bovary' London Film Festival Screening

Laura Carmichael attended the London Film Festival screening of ‘Madame Bovary’ held at the Odeon West End on Saturday (October 11) in London, England.

The actress wore an Erdem Resort 2015 white organza creation rendered with striking black floral embroidery for an elegant evening option with plenty of ladylike appeal.

Giving the look a contemporary spin, Laura styled her look with mesh and PVC pumps with metallic toecaps.

The overall look would’ve been perfect had her wavy tresses been worn back in an elegant chignon.

Do you agree?
