2015 Oscars Couples

2015 Oscars plus ones

This post is dedicated to those gorgeous plus-ones on Oscar night, who should never be left in the shade.

Sophie Hunter: The pregnant wife of Benedict Cumberbatch looked breathtaking in her custom Lanvin red one-shoulder gown with brass beading. The vivid colour was only heighted when she stood alongside Benedict in his stark white tuxedo blazer. While oozing femininity, her gold Lanvin accessories and drop earrings helped made this quite a strong, powerful look. She’s slowly becoming my favourite plus-one. Sorry, Camila Alves.

Hannah Bagshawe: The British couple both wore navy Alexander McQueen. Eddie Redmayne wore a Bespoke navy tuxedo with black velvet slippers to collect his Best actor awards, while she wore a navy chiffon embroidered gown with embellished feather belt styled with a gold McQueen ‘Clutch Me’ clutch.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lela Rose & Nicole Kidman In Valentino Couture

BDOTW 9 feb

While you voted for the subtle elegance of the gorgeous Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Lela Rose, I was swept away by the statuesque beauty that is Nicole Kidman, who ruled the Berlin Film Festival red carpet in Valentino Couture.

When it came to the fellas, it was Eddie Redmayne in Ralph Lauren for you, while I picked Benedict Cumberbatch for his super sharp classic offering.

I was tempted to go for Eddie, but I feel like the very reason I fell in love with his style – love for colour and different types of fabrications – has given way to a sea of black and blue this awards season.

2015 BAFTAs Menswear Roundup

BAFTA Men 1

The tuxes were out in force at the 2015 BAFTAs, hosted at The Royal Opera House on Sunday (February 8). Here, a look at the fine fellows on the red carpet.

David Beckham
: The always-handsome Becks wore an impeccable midnight-blue suit, well tailored and popped with a white pocket square and perfect bow tie. I love the added dimension of the deep indigo shade. He just wears clothes so well.

Tom Hiddleston: Looking suave, the actor wore a slim-fitting Alexander McQueen black tuxedo with a white evening shirt and black bow tie. Black onyx skull cufflinks added some subtle fashion edge to his classic outing.

Luke Evans: Also opting for a midnight-blue suit, Luke’s was an Ermenegildo Zegna piece, jazzed up with contrast black lapels and a black bow tie. He could have likely seen his reflection in his hyper-polished, patent shoes, in which case it should have told him that his pants were a fraction too slouchy.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

menswear

Here is a quick roundup of some gents who caught my eye on the red carpet this week.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor joined Keira Knightley for the ‘Imitation Game’ pre-BAFTA reception held at the ME Hotel on Thursday (February 5) in London, England, attending his first red carpet event this year without his glamorous plus one, Sophie Hunter. As we would expect, his classic suit was tailored to perfection. Once in a while I would like to see something other than black from Benedict, but he scrubs up so nicely that one can’t blame him for sticking to tried and true.

David Oyelowo: The British actor is yet to stick to safe black. He wore a dual-colour biscuit and black Dolce & Gabbana suit to the Virtuosos Awards at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. On some this would’ve been questionable, but on someone with his flair it works.

Ethan Hawke: For the American Riviera Awards ceremony, held during at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Thursday (February 5), Ethan selected a midnight-blue suit, which by his standards was quite sombre considering his love for colour.

Sophie Hunter In Erdem – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Sophie Hunter In Erdem - 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Benedict Cumberbatch and pregnant fiancée Sophie Hunter attended the 2015 Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 11) in Beverly Hills, California.

Since Sophie has come into the picture, I have to admit that for me she has stolen the spotlight from Benedict.

My eyes always fall straight to her.

On this occasion she looked gorgeous wearing another Erdem gown, this time a navy metallic floral jacquard gown from the Pre-Fall 2015 collection.

Styled with a complementary rouge lip and chic chignon, this lady is the only one who can rival Camila Alves in the best-dressed plus-one department.

Oh, and with regard to Benedict, the papa-to-be of course looked very handsome in a classic tux.

Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala Menswear Roundup

Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala Menswear Roundup

Alongside the ladies at the 26th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala held at Palm Springs Convention Center on Saturday (January 3) in Palm Springs, California, was a cluster of handsome gents.

Eddie Redmayne: The recently married ‘Theory of Everything’ actor picked up the Desert Palm Achievement Award looking very sharp once again. Having picked up Best Dressed Male for the third year in a row in 2014, he kicks off the year wearing a Gucci midnight-blue velvet notch-lapel two-button Dylan jacket with intriguing leather detailing, paired with a white dress shirt, black satin bow tie and black wool trousers, adding a smart pair of black patent leather lace-ups to round out his award-winning look. Mrs aka Hannah Bagshawe, was also wearing Gucci.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The ‘Sherlock’ actor wore a classic single-button suit, with the only pop of colour coming from his gorgeous arm candy, fiancée Sophie Hunter, in her Just Cavalli Spring 2015 multicoloured printed maxi dress, which sees her move away from her beloved Erdem on this rare occasion.
