Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some guys taking to the red carpet recently.

Ryan Reynolds: Blake Lively’s hubby was looking very sharp at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of his latest movie ‘The Voices’ on Thursday (September 11), where he joined his Miu Miu clad co-star Anna Kendrick. The actor wore a steely navy-blue head-to-toe Brunello Cucinelli look, opting to go sans tie and buttoning down his shirt. Even as someone who is not a huge fan of beards, I have to say this look is very distinguished on him.

Benjamin McKenzie: The actor joined Jada Pinkett Smith on the red carpet for the ‘Gotham’ premiere last night (September 15) wearing a Dior Homme dark-grey suit styled with a spotted tie with Jimmy Choo shoes and a Mont Blanc watch and tie-bar pin.

Josh Hutcherson: Opting for a classic Dior Homme black wool two-button peak-lapel suit, white cotton shirt, black silk tie, and black leather derbies to the ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’ Toronto Film Festival premiere, the blazer doesn’t appear to fit too well. Perhaps he should’ve left it unbuttoned.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – ‘Shelter’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton - 'Shelter' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Connelly, much like fellow Louis Vuitton devotee Charlotte Gainsbourg, kept up her commitment to the French brand during the Toronto Film Festival while promoting her new movie, ‘Shelter’, on Friday (September 12), opting for two LBDs.

Photocall: The first was a photocall-appropriate Louis Vuitton textured top and corduroy skirt with a flounced hem. While I can see the chic-appeal this look is, I’m still feeling totally underwhelmed, much to my disappointment – I don’t believe I have ever put the words ‘Connelly’ and ‘underwhelmed’ in the same sentence.

Premiere: Shifting several gears, she went for sexy gothic glamour for the premiere, wearing another head-to-toe LV look. The intricate laser-cut lace overlay sets this apart from an average LBD, with white accessories elevating the look.

I wish these looks didn’t feel so similar, especially considering all that is available to her from this brand.

Berenice Bejo In Elie Saab – ‘The Search’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Berenice Bejo In Elie Saab - 'The Search' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Berenice Bejo returned to the red carpet for the Toronto Film Festival premiere of ‘The Search’ on Friday (September 12).

Selecting Elie Saab for the second time in a row, the exotic French beauty dazzled in an embellished strapless tea-length dress from the Spring 2014 collection‎.

Keeping her accessories tonal, she added an Elie Saab clutch and Louboutin sandals to her look, completing this head-to-toe Parisian affair.

Oozing elegance, I love the chic styling; however, the bejewelled cuff feels a tad unnecessary.

If she wanted a statement piece, emerald earrings would have perfected this look.

Do you agree?

Anna Kendrick In Miu Miu – ‘The Voices’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Anna Kendrick In Miu Miu -  'The Voices'  Toronto  Film Festival Premiere

Anna Kendrick attended ‘The Voices’ premiere during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival held at Ryerson Theatre on Thursday (September 11) in Toronto, Canada.

Having worn a gown earlier in the week, the actress opted for something shorter and more playful with this head-to-toe Miu Miu look.

I’m instantly drawn to the rich red and violet hues of the devoré top, and the skirt is delightfully short and sassy, but the mirror accents on the clutch and platform shoes pulled this look down a peg or two.

I have no such complaints about the flawless hair and makeup, though.

Get The Look: Rosamund Pike’s ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness’ Premiere Makeup

"Hector And The Search For Happiness" Premiere - 2014 Toronto International Film FestivalCelebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell worked with Rosamund Pike to create her look for the premiere of ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness’ held during the 2014 Toronto Film Festival on Sunday.

Georgie said, “Rosamund is a breathtaking beauty so I simply wanted to enhance that, keeping her looking modern and cool.”

Here’s how to get the look.

She prepped Rosamund’s skin with La Mer Soft Cream and La Prairie Platinum Rare Eye Cream. Evening out her skin tone, she used Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick.

For that hint of colour on the cheeks, she then used Korres Cheek Butter in Philia Rose then powdered lightly with La Mer The Powder. She then went over her blush with Laura Mercier Powder Blush in Honey Lust.

Her brows were groomed and slightly enhanced with Laura Mercier Cream Brow Gel in Fair.

Rosamund’s eyes were smoky and soft. To create this, Georgie used Bobbi Brown Shadow in Cool Ivory all over the lid to create a flawless base. Then she used Bobbi Brown Shadows in Grey and Toast for that grey/taupe blend. She blended Rosamund’s eyeshadow from the lid up into the crease and then slightly above the crease, also bringing it under the eye to create the smoky effect. She applied two layers of YSL Faux Cils Mascara in Black to finish off the eyes.

The look was complete with Hourglass Femme Nude Lip in Number 4.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick look at the dapper gents attending New York and Toronto Film Festival premieres this week.

Douglas Booth: The handsome continues to prove why we often hand him a best dressed title each time he steps out on the red carpet. With navy being the colour of the moment in menswear, the actor sets his own pace opting for a green Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit styled with an Armani timepiece to the ‘Riot Club’ Toronto Film Festival premiere.

Rob Pattinson: The British actor was also staying true to his favourite brand: Gucci. I do love it when guys do something a bit different. Here Rob styles his navy notch-lapel two-button Marseille suit with a navy evening shirt and brown leather lace-ups while attending the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of ‘Maps Of The Stars’ on Tuesday (September 9). The colours couldn’t be more perfect as we slowly move towards autumn and the suit, as always, was a perfect fit. The usual dishevelment gave way to sleeker grooming, so this gets a thumbs up all round from me.

Keira Knightley In Michael Van Der Ham – ‘Laggies’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Keira Knightley In Michael Van Der Ham - 'Laggies' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Keira Knightley attended the premiere of her film ‘Laggies’ at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on Wednesday (September 10).

For the occasion, the star wore a gorgeous navy-colored custom Michael Van Der Ham gown with black and silver beaded applique detailing, and tulle overlay skirt.

She paired the gown with stunning diamond and pearl jewels and simple black pumps.

Keira wears both the color navy and a boatneck neckline so well, and this intricate and creative look is a fun addition to her arsenal of lovely ensembles during TIFF.

A bright red lip was the perfect makeup choice to go with this gown, and paired with gray-lined eyes and slightly purple-tinged eyeshadow, the makeup look is a total win.

Even a slightly messy, low-slong ponytail, thanks in part to an extremely windy red carpet, doesn’t detract from the lovely look.

Keira Knightley In Stella McCartney – ‘Laggies’ Toronto Film Festival Photocall

Keira Knightley In Stella McCartney - 'Laggies' Toronto Film Festival Photocall

Keira Knightley attended a photocall for the film ‘Laggies’ at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on Wednesday (September 10).

The lovely star wore a pleated, high-necked Luchadores mask-print dress with asymmetrical ruffle detailing on the skirt from the Stella McCartney Resort 2015 collection.

Stella McCartney definitely knows how to have fun with fashion, and this dress proves it. It’s not every day that a garment with such humor also has such sophistication, but this dress knocks both out of the park.

Keira wears the look beautifully, and simple black pumps were the perfect footwear selection.

A loose updo, smudgy eyeshadow and coral cheeks and lips complete the effect.
