Best Dressed Of The Week – Gina Rodriguez In LaQuan Smith, Nina Dobrev In Vionnet, Robert Pattinson & Channing Tatum In Gucci

BDOTW 18 Aug

Gina Rodriguez was your best dressed this week wearing a navy-blue LaQuan Smith dress. No doubt you were enamoured not only with the dress, but also the styling of this look.

My vote went to Nina Dobrev in Vionnet, with Elle Fanning, Odeya Rush and Taylor Swift – who coincidentally all wore red this week – all running closely for joint second place.

Nina was my eventual winner, because I love the sweet sassiness of her look; the mix of colour and those Kurt Geiger pink pumps pretty much sealed the win.

When it came to the guys, Robert Pattinson in his classic Gucci suit was your favourite, whereas I opted for the charming all-grey Gucci suit worn by Channing Tatum.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 15 August

Gents have been scrubbing up nicely on the red carpet this week. Here is a quick roundup.

James Marsden: The actor was back and looking sharper than ever, attending the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet wearing a Z Zegna grey two-button notched-lapel suit styled with tan Givenchy laceups. I’m missing a tie thanks to the charming navy print pocket square.

Channing Tatum: The actor also opted for some shades of grey, donning a Gucci windowpane two-button notched-lapel suit styled with a white dress shirt and steel-grey tie, with black laceups rounding out his dapper look.

Robert Pattinson: Having disappointed many of you with his last look, it appears Rob made a conscious effort on this occasion, looking very handsome, in his usual slightly dishevelled way, donning a classic black Gucci suit. I love the shimmering black tie and the maroon laceups for two out-of-the-box touches.

Here is a roundup of all the guys who took to the red carpet for various events last weekend, including Comic-Con and the Young Hollywood Awards.

Douglas Booth: The handsome British actor wore a smart-casual Polo Ralph Lauren look consisting of a khaki linen sport jacket, mint-green chinos, and a simple white tee and pocket square. The contrasting pair of navy suede brogues don’t ruin the look, but some tan loafers would’ve been preferred here.

Ansel Elgort: Brown, auburn, cinnamon, mud… call Ansel’s Prada Uomo Fall 2014 two-button lapel suit whatever colour you like. I am only getting through this by focusing on the tie. He can do so much better.

Eddie Redmayne: The always impeccably dressed actor wore a micro-checked blue and white suit with navy accents, including slippers which I would’ve swapped out for those nice navy Alexander McQueen loafers he wore during awards season.

Here is a quick menswear catch up, with some of the Tony Awards attendees we missed.

Channing Tatum: The actor joined his lovely wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum on the red carpet for the ’22 Jump Street’ LA premiere on Tuesday (June 10). He donned a three-piece charcoal-grey Dolce & Gabbana suit styled with a striped shirt and slim tie

Jonah Hill: Channing’s co-star caught my eye wearing an ink-blue suit, opting not to wear a co-ordinating tie, but selecting brown instead. Perhaps in theory it shouldn’t work, but it does for Jonah.

Ben McKenzie: The actor joined Diane Kruger and Jordana Brewster on the red carpet for the 13th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball on Saturday (June 7). The actor donned a Z Zegna burgundy two-button peak-lapel suit with a striped tie and matching lace-up shoes. Aside from the colour, I love the slim fit and perfect pant length.

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Channing Tatum: The actor attended the New York screening of ’22 Jump Street’ on Wednesday (June 4) wearing an Armani grey checked suit styled with a grey shirt and tie plus black Kurt Geiger ‘Grant’ shoes.

Zachary Levi: The actor attended the Theatre World Awards on Monday (June 2) wearing a two-tone moss-green Vivienne Westwood Man Fall 2014 suit styled with a white shirt, green tie and brown patent-leather shoes. I love Westwood’s classic suits with a twist.

Ansel Elgort: The young actor joined his co-star Shailene Woodley for ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ New York premiere wearing a Prada Uomo Fall 2014 suit. I love the colours here, marrying denim-blue with two shades of rose-pink.

With all the focus on the glitz of the gowns at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, it’s easy to overlook the handsome group of guys who are also making the rounds in Cannes and beyond. Here’s a highlight of some of their looks.

Channing Tatum: The actor-hunk joined the glamorous set at the Cannes Film Festival ‘Foxcatcher’ premiere on Monday (May 19). He was incredibly dapper in a Gucci black peak lapel, one-button Signoria tuxedo with a white evening shirt, black silk bowtie and black patent leather lace-up shoes.

John Legend: Accompanying Chrissy Teigen at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 18) in Las Vegas, Nevada, the singer also stood out in a Gucci Spring/Summer 2014 notch-lapel, two-button new palma jacket in a navy print, paired with a matching navy printed cotton shirt, dark Lanvin trousers, Jimmy Choo shoes and a Piaget watch.

Robert Pattinson: At the ‘Maps To The Stars’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Monday (May 19), the actor again opted for black, donning a Dior Homme wool and silk satin two-button tuxedo, an oxford cotton shirt, a silk grosgrain tie, and black leather shoes. Despite the monochromatic statement, this polished look had me just as captivated as a colourful one would.
