The male stars of ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ took to the red carpet for the LA premiere held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (November 17) in Los Angeles, California plus some other gents grace the red carpet with their presence yesterday evening.

Liam Hemsworth: The actor wore Dolce & Gabbana again, this time wearing a striped charcoal three-piece suit with a light-grey shirt and skinny tie. While there is no denying how sharp he looks, I prefer him clean shaven. He’s looking considerably older here.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The Dolce & Gabbana-clad actor was not only joined on the red carpet for the ‘The Imitation Game’ New York premiere by his co-star Keira Knightley, but also by the woman who broke a million hearts, his fiance Director Sophie Hunter who looked divine wearing an Erdem floral print Resort 2015 gown.

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.

GQ Men Of The Year Awards Menswear Roundup

GQ Men1

Even though the girls grabbed plenty of stares at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2), the evening was about the guys, after all. Many in the handsome bunch were naturally dressed to impress.

Douglas Booth: Rather appropriately attired in a bespoke BOSS Made to Measure suit to accept his Hugo Boss Most Stylish Man award, the actor didn’t leave anyone guessing as to his sartorial cred. He was as charming as ever in this navy-blue number. The perfect bow tie was my favourite part—the icing on the cake.

Dan Stevens: The British actor and one of the evening’s presenters wore a Dior Homme Prussian blue slim, shawl-collar tuxedo with a white cotton wing-tip tuxedo shirt and black patent leather derbies. The colour of the suit was obviously selected to bring out his intense baby-blue gaze, which helped detract from the fact that the black satin bow tie was rather oversized.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The Actor of the Year winner took a monochromatic approach in an all-black three-piece Spencer Hart suit and tie. He could have done better for his big night.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Blake Lively in Gucci Première, Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé, Ryan Reynolds in Gucci & Benedict Cumberbatch in Ralph Lauren

BDOTW Cannes

With so much going on this weekend I almost forgot to announce who was best dressed of the week.

Well, it was a two-way tie between Blake Lively in Gucci Première and Blake Lively in Gucci Première. While I believed her opening ceremony gown was the better of the two, it would appear you guys loved them both equally.

My choice was the great Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé. What can I say; it’s a match made in fashion heaven.

When it came to the fellas, you gave Ryan Reynolds in Gucci the top honour this week. I, on the other hand, was swept away by Benedict Cumberbatch in his impeccable Ralph Lauren Black Label suit.

The Royal Marsden Dinner Red Carpet Roundup

The Royal Marsden Dinner Red Carpet Roundup

There were plenty more lovely ladies, plus Benedict Cumberbatch, who attended The Royal Marsden Dinner, hosted by the Duke of Cambridge at Windsor Castle in England on Tuesday (May 13).

Zhang Ziyi, Emma Watson and Margot Robbie all wore grey, but here we have a lot of black Ralph Lauren looks.

Kate Moss: The British model was the only one not to follow the Ralph Lauren dress code, opting for a black one-sleeve dress with a side slit styled with sexy black strappy Christian Louboutin ‘Audrey’ sandals and a silver clutch.

Benedict Cumberbatch: Following on from his Met Gala best-dressed-actor triumph, the ‘Sherlock’ star proved it was no fluke, looking very dashing in a Ralph Lauren Black Label peak-lapel tuxedo.

Lily James: Looking very much the lady of the manor, the ‘Downton Abbey’ actress wore a Ralph Lauren one-of-a-kind black and gold gown embroidered with feathers and beads. This was one of my favourites: dramatic and glamorous.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Blake Lively In Gucci Premiere, Karolina Kurkova In Marchesa, Benedict Cumberbatch In Ralph Lauren & Douglas Booth In Burberry

BD1 12 May

There was just no separating Blake Lively and Karolina Kurkova this week.

Both taking 34% of your votes, they were neck and neck all weekend.

Blake swept you off your feet with her dazzling return to the red carpet in Gucci Premiere, while Karolina’s Marchesa sculpted strapless satin-organza gown was not only a thing of beauty but was also one of the very few looks which lived up to the theme. This was my favourite too.
