Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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?

Bradley Cooper In Ferragamo & Tom Ford - ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Madrid & Paris Premieres

After the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, Bradley Cooper continued his promotional efforts for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’.

He travelled to Europe, where he attended two premieres.

On Wednesday night, he greeted fans wrapped up warm wearing a black wool coat and grey Ralph Lauren scarf over his light-grey Ferragamo suit styled with brown oxford shoes.

The following day he headed to Paris, France, where we got a better look at his dapper Tom Ford warm-brown three-piece suit with a textured tie, dove-grey shirt the same brown shoes he wore previously.

Only 18 days into the new year, Bradley has definitely grabbed my attention, not just because of his piercing blue eyes, day-old stubble and gorgeous grin, but also because of this choice of sharply tailored suits, which he manages to keep varied and interesting.

Golden Globes Men 1The girls have been feted for their fashionable entrances and exits at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. But there were plenty of handsome guys on the red carpet, too. That said, most of the men played it safe, taking a rather traditional approach with tuxes, all tied up with a bow (tie).

Ben Affleck: Ben was definitely the evening’s Golden boy, as he snagged the Best Director and Best Picture win for ‘Argo’—and he dressed for his double victory. His midnight blue peak lapel tuxedo from Gucci was a handsome three-piece affair, especially with the matching satin bow tie. The blue spin on the traditional tux won me over. Even his perfectly groomed facial hair wasn’t bothersome; it only added a sense of refined depth to the look.

Bradley Cooper: The Best Actor nominee for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ went green for the red carpet with his well-tailored, black Tom Ford two-piece tux, a part of the sustainable Green Carpet Challenge. A pert bow tie topped off the dapper look.

Robert Pattinson:  This ‘Twilight’ heartthrob is all grown up. The British actor impressed with his slim Gucci black peak lapel ‘Signoria’ tuxedo with white dress shirt and black satin tie, matched to black leather lace-ups. It was the picture of formality, and Robert even exchanged his standard scruffiness for a clean-shaven look for the occasion.

2013 AFI Awards Menswear Carpet Round Up

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.

Critics Choice Awards Men

Awards shows are always a women’s world, but at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, hosted at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, the boys really kept up with the girls, sauntering out plenty of enticingly formal, albeit rather similar, exits.

Eddie Redmayne: The British actor thrilled us in a trendsetting tan suit just one day earlier at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards, and his Acne tuxedo was equally great—in a completely different way. Glossy satin lapels on the plush jacket plus a thin tie and white pocket square were perfection at its finest. Eddie continues to earn his place among our ‘Les Miserables’ Best Ensemble Cast of 2012.

Matthew McConaughey: The ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ actor put his strikingly thin silhouette into the slim lines of Dolce & Gabbana’s incredibly sleek tux. He looked altogether dapper, especially with his bow tie, although I think we’re all eager to see Matthew back to his buff ways.

Cory Monteith: The ‘Glee’ cutie took Marc Jacobs for a spin and succeeded in A-plus form with his traditional black suit and tie paired with a white button-down.
