2014 Hollywood Film Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Hollywood Film Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Lest we forget the gents who took to the red carpet for the 2014 Hollywood Film Awards on Friday (November 14).

Channing Tatum: Escorting his good lady wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, the actor looked so very handsome in his Gucci navy notch-lapel three-piece New Signoria suit with a white shirt, navy silk tie and black leather lace-up shoes. Tatum and Gucci continues to be a winning combination.

Jared Leto: The Oscar-winning actor opted for a smart double-breasted suit from Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2014 collection. I love the styling of this look – yep, even the white Christian Louboutin New Platers Fiori shoes. I love how he can always marry looking smart with being uber cool.

Eddie Redmayne: The British actor joined his Alexander McQueen-clad ‘Theory of Everything’ co-star, Felicity Jones, at this event, looking as dapper as ever. Cut to perfection, his midnight-blue Valentino tuxedo with contrasting black lapels is yet another look for his hall of fame. I love the dual-colour pocket square. Sometimes it’s the little things that make an outfit.

Menswear Roundup

This week, the guys kept on giving us their sartorial best at several recent movie premieres, with looks ranging from informal to a bit more fancy.

Justin Timberlake: Rocking a side of scruff, the ‘Suit & Tie’ singer-actor attended the ‘Runner Runner’ premiere at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on Wednesday evening. He suited up in a formal midnight-blue tux with black lapels that was worn tie-less with a crisp white dress shirt by Saint Laurent.

Chris Hemsworth: After attending the Rome premiere of ‘Rush The Movie,’ Chris hit up the film’s New York City screening at Chelsea Clearview Cinema on Wednesday. Donning a Dolce & Gabbana monochromatic black suit and tie-less button-down, Chris maintained a casual-cool vibe that let his stare rather than his style do most of the talking.

Ben Affleck: Ben was also on the red carpet with Justin at the ‘Runner Runner’ premiere, where the actor was traditionally handsome in a dark suit, popped with a light grey tie and a purple pocket square.

Dan Stevens: Joining Chris at the ‘Rush The Movie’ New York screening, Dan showed some biker-boy edge with a black leather embossed motorcycle jacket, paired with a white T-shirt and grey jeans.

2013 ESPY Awards Menswear Round Up

2013 ESPY Awards Men

Not willing to be beat by the gathering of glam girls at the 2013 ESPY Awards, some of the boys also brought their fashion A-game to the red carpet at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California on Wednesday.

LeBron James: Scoring three trophies, including one for Best Male Athlete, the Miami Heat basketball pro outfitted his tall frame in a Waraire Boswell burgundy custom suit with a wide black shawl lapel that was polished off with a big black bow tie. One thing’s certain, LeBron brought some red-hot heat with this slightly OTT outing. Slam dunk or fashion foul?

Jason Sudeikis: The comedian played to the summer season with his Calvin Klein grey chintz wool one-button notch lapel suit and dress shoes from the Spring 2013 collection, worn with a casually unbuttoned white shirt. Too bad it photographed as a bit too lacklustre for my liking.

Dwayne Wade: Dressed to the nines, the Miami Heat player rivaled teammate LeBron James with his own flashy ensemble. He sauntered out a Lanvin black peak label one-button tuxedo and matching pants, paired with a white dress shirt with black glass buttons, a black bow tie, silk scarf and pearl lapel pin. Oh, and the sneakers came out to play, too, as he went for bold red kicks.

2013 BAFTA Awards Menswear Round Up

BAFTA Men

Keeping it classic with black tuxedos and bow ties was prevalent on the red carpet at the EE British Academy Film Awards in London on Sunday. But a handful of biggest stars took a chance with navy colours and velvet fabrics. The risks paid off – for the most part.

Ben Affleck: In addition to taking home the award for Best Director, Bendefinitely took home the award for best male grooming. That dark beard looked amazing with his Gucci Made-to-Order midnight blue velvet Marseille tuxedo. His tux displayed two buttons and notch lapels. Along with his tux, Ben wore a skinny collared white shirt, a matching flat tie in a four-in-hand knot, and black leather lace ups.

Bradley Cooper: Everything below the neck looked incredible on the star of ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’ Wearing a Ferragamo midnight navy three-piece tux with black satin peak lapels, Bradley looked every bit the part of a Best Actor nominee. He even paired it with a bow tie that he needs to straighten out. Unfortunately, it looks like the rain got to him and his hair looks a bit sloppy, considering he’s wearing a tux.

Chris Tucker: If there was one man on the red carpet that ruined his look with the little things, it was Chris Tucker. The navy colour looks great, but he went from looking like a stud to looking like a stooge thanks to his accents. Chris is great, funny actor, but it takes a specific type of confidence and power to pull off lapels that wide – Chris doesn’t have it. And that droopy, oversized bow tie isn’t helping matters.

2013 SAG Awards Menswear Round Up

2013 SAG Awards Menswear Round UpWith gowns galore parading down awards-gala red carpets, it’s always hard to focus on the tuxes—no matter how handsome they and their inhabitants are. But at the 2013 SAG Awards, hosted last night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, the men had their moment. Like many of the girls, some of the guys played with color—albeit to mixed success. But it all made for a far more entertaining and colorful show.

Eddie Redmayne: The ‘Les Miserables’ star continues to deliver great red-carpet performances. The British actor carried off a slimly tailored tuxedo by BOSS Black, rendered in a luxe brown, crushed velvet. He paired it with a white shirt and matching dress shoes from the label. In a sea of black and blue, this delicious chocolate color was a smooth statement—so was Eddie’s cool-boy coif.

Bradley Cooper: The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actor and nominee chose Tom Ford for his big night. The midnight navy color of his single-breasted tux, featuring a black satin shawl collar, reminded me of some of the similarly colored gowns seen last night, such as the one from Jennifer Lawrence. I wish his black bow tie didn’t appear crooked, throwing the polish of this look awry.

Cory Monteith: This ‘Glee’ cutie stepped outside the norm with his Calvin Klein tuxedo paired with a sleek set of black Christian Louboutin loafers. His cufflinks and tie bar were by Ox and Bull Trading Co. and his timepiece from Versace. The exaggerated peak lapel in black contrasted sharply with the light heather grey of the single-breasted jacket. But was Cory red-carpet-royalty or just prom-king ready?

Eddie Redmayne: The British actor has started the year off really strong. So far, style-wise, he’s leaving his male counterparts in the shade giving us a variety of dapper, slim-fit suits. Continuing to fly the flag for British fashion abroad, he wore a Topshop green-and-navy fleck suit styled with a chocolate-brown shirt, olive cardigan and red pocket square. This has to be one of my favourite looks from Eddie so far. I love the mix of colours and the flame-red pocket square was a perfect touch.

Ben Affleck: While Eddie was stepping out of the box, Ben was very much staying in it keeping his look simple wearing a navy suit with a white shirt and blue tie. I would’ve expected him to wear black shoes, but he opted for brown on this occasion.

Bradley Cooper: Dressed in a grey gingham Gucci suit sans tie, I’m not feeling the black shoes with his light coloured suit.
