2015 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscar men

The men were out in force at the 2015 Oscars and the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where there was plenty of handsome inspiration to go around from a fine group of fellows.

Jared Leto: Getting the evening started on a non-traditional note, the actor and musician was every bit the unorthodox Academy Awards dresser in his baby-blue Givenchy tux, accented by a white bowtie and white lug sole shoes. He let his hair down literally and made no excuses for it, saying that the Oscars was his going-away party for his locks. I wonder if the beard was also included in that party. While no one could pull this off like Jared, between the mane and the male pastels, this was verging on almost too much too handle.

Chris Pine: A stark contrast to Jared, Chris went for the all-out traditionally classic route and suited up in a Giorgio Armani black double-breasted peak-lapel tuxedo. It was impeccable and goes to show what transformative power a well-tailored tux can have.

David Oyelowo: Looking as if he was inspired by the red carpet itself, the ‘Selma’ actor dressed to impress in a crimson Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo word with #TackleEbola handcrafted pin by Jason of Beverly Hills. He does a great job pulling off this colour, yet I’m not completely sold on the satiny look of the vest and bowtie underneath.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup 3 feb

Here is a quick menswear roundup from the weekend and Monday evening.

Channing Tatum: The actor joined co-star Mila Kunis and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘Jupiter Ascending’ held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Monday (February 2) in Hollywood, California. Working a very smart tonal striped suit, the overall look is very refined.

Chris Hemsworth: The Australian actor was honoured at the 2015 G’Day USA Gala on Saturday (January 31), where he looked as handsome as ever in blue joining his wife Elsa Pataky on the red carpet. The suit look with laidback appeal was styled with a Bulgari timepiece.

2015 Golden Globes Menswear Roundup

2015 Golden Globes Menswear Roundup

The guys were none too shabby when it came to their sartorial selections at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards, held last night (January 11) at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, boasting a range of looks that went way beyond the standard black tux.

Matt Bomer: The Best Supporting Actor winner for ‘The Normal Heart’ was dressed just as winningly in an impeccable Ralph Lauren Black Label navy shawl collar tuxedo that naturally brought out his own baby blues and was handsomely paired with a dark bowtie and crisp white button-down shirt.

Eddie Redmayne: Looking as sharp as ever, ‘The Theory of Everything’ Best Actor winner took a Euro-cool version of black velvet out for a spin, donning a Gucci notch-lapel, two-button New Signoria evening jacket with a white evening shirt, black satin bowtie, black tuxedo trousers and black patent leather lace-up shoes.

Alan Cumming
: Having quite the nude moment, ‘The Good Wife’ actor and nominee wore a buff wool, two-button peak lapel tuxedo, buff dress shirt and buff silk skinny tie from the Spring 2015 Calvin Klein Collection. Between the monochromatic buff-ness and the rolled pant legs, not to mention his Christian Louboutin ‘Mika On Stage’ sneakers, this look translated as more comical than cool.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Solange Knowles In Humberto Leon for Kenzo, Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen and Channing Tatum In Gucci

Best Dressed Of The Week - Solange Knowles In Humberto Leon for Kenzo, Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen and Channing Tatum In Gucci

It was damn near impossible not to be entranced by Solange Knowles’ wedding gown created by Humberto Leon for Kenzo.

We never expected her to wear some big poofy gown. This gown couldn’t have been better suited to her style and personality.

When it came to the fellas, there was a battle between Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen and Channing Tatum in Gucci.

With just 1% splitting them, Eddie was the victor for you, but I was all about the slick navy three-piece suit offering of Channing.

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.
