Best Dressed Of The Week – Nina Dobrev In Monique Lhuillier, Chris Pine In Ralph Lauren & Amber Heard In Emilio Pucci

BDOTW 13 May

Nina Dobrev’s Monique Lhuillier Met Gala look was your best dressed this week.

Even though you guys didn’t rate her, Amber Heard in Emilio Pucci was my best dressed this week by a very long mile.

Between the colour, the embellishments, impeccable styling and that sexy open back, I was hooked.

When it came to the guys, it was a two-horse race between Eddie Redmayne and Chris Pine. Eventually, Chris won for his very dapper Ralph Lauren pinstripe three-piece suit.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ New York Special Screening

'Star Trek Into Darkness' New York Special Screening

The most stylish men of the moment were back on the red carpet to promote their latest movie, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, in New York City last night sans their lovely female co-stars for a boys’ night out.

Chris Pine: Once again, the handsome actor made me swoon. This time, he looked very dashing sporting pinstripes and polka dots in a well fitted Ralph Lauren three-piece suit. He has had two great looks this week, but this is by far my favourite. Very Gordon Gekko.

Zachary Quinto: After going punk at the Met Gala and sporting a creased look on Jimmy Fallon, Zachary looked uber slick at this event sporting a Todd Snyder navy suit. The twist on this occasion is that his blazer features leather lapels, with a chambray shirt adding a relaxed vibe to his look.

Benedict Cumberbatch: As the villain in this movie, the British actor continues to stick to a dark colour palette, this time wearing a midnight-blue suit with black lapels, which he wore with a white dress shirt, black tie and white pocket square.

Chris Pine: For Tuesday’s Mexico City premiere of Chris’s new film ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, he went with a grey double-breasted suit. We haven’t seen too many men wearing the double-breasted suit of late, but it worked for Chris at last month’s Cinema Con awards so he wisely went back to it. The suit fits beautifully and he paired it with an orange tie, which is another detail we don’t see often. His favourite Ralph Lauren tan shoes completed his look.

Zachary Quinto: Dressing upscale-casual for ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ on Wednesday, he paired his incredible Todd Snyder olive suit with a fully-buttoned navy shirt. No bad things can be said as the fit was right and the black shoes worked well, but those creases. The creases are unforgivable.

Tom Cruise: Joining Olga Kurylenko at the Japan premiere in Tokyo of Tom’s latest film ‘Oblivion’, the star opted for a grey three-piece suit with peak lapels. The colour was great but a three-piece suit must be tailored to fit the shape of the body. The waistcoat and jacket seemed a bit loose, but it’s difficult to tell when Tom refuses to button his jacket. The pants are much too long, though. The blue shirt, grey tie, and signature sunglasses gave him that movie star aura he always gives off.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Queen Máxima of the Netherlands In Jan Taminiau & Chris Pine In Ralph Lauren Purple Label

BDOTW 6 May

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands in Jan Taminiau was a clear favourite this week, taking 25% of the votes to be crowned (no pun intended) BDOTW.

Of all the looks she wore during the inauguration, this was the one which stood out for me, for the colour, style and that regal cape.

When it came to the fellas, we also agreed that Chris Pine was the best dressed, in his three-piece Ralph Lauren Purple Label suit.

He continues to prove that, when it comes to donning a suit, he is currently head and shoulders above the rest; this is his fourth win since the promo tour for ‘Star Trek Into the Darkness’ started.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ London Premiere Menswear Round Up

Star Trek Into Darkness - UK Film Premiere

The men of ‘Star Trek Into The Darkness’ have been making us swoon over the past few weeks and that love will deepen for some of you who have been pining for Benedict Cumberbatch – OK, now I get it.

At the London premiere this evening, the handsome trio – wedged between the gorgeous Alice Eve and Zoe Saldana – all wore three-piece suits, much to my delight.

Chris Pine: The handsome actor donned another Ralph Lauren Purple Label suit which was made-to-measure. His grey cashmere herringbone suit was once again styled with that purple tie which many of you disliked in Berlin and a lilac checked shirt. No tan shoes on this occasion. Instead he opted for a black leather pair.

Zachary Quinto: There is something about Zachary that I just can’t get enough of. This evening he worked a three-piece navy-blue notched lapel suit, which by his adventurous standards, was fairly tame, yet he looks so damn handsome. Like Katy Perry his quirky side and strait-laced side delight with equal aplomb.

Benedict Cumberbatch: We all love a bad boy, hence your love for Benedict who is the baddie of the movie. The British actor was dress in all black – including his newly dyed hair – looking very handsome in his classic three-piece suit styled with a black tie, white shirt and white pocket square.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Berlin Premiere Menswear Round Up

'Star Trek Into Darkness' Premiere

For the German premiere of the much-anticipated ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, held in Berlin on Monday, three of the male stars and director J.J. Abrams, along with Alice Eve and Zoe Saldana, arrived in very different looks. They showed the know how to style a suit, but only two of them nailed the fit.

Simon Pegg: The British actor went with a grey suit with notch lapels over a classic white shirt. The jacket fits well, but the pants do not. He wisely finished it all off with a burgundy slim tie and a pink silk pocket square.

Zachary Quinto: Known to be a great dresser, Zachary added to his impressive menswear résumé with a perfectly cut navy suit with shawl lapels over a pale blue shirt. The details made him stand out. Along with the suit, he added a wild-patterned black-and-white tie and a plaid pocket square. None of the colours were identical, giving him more of a statement look and less of a uniformed look.

Chris Pine: He opted for a Ralph Lauren brown checked suit with notch lapels similar to one he wore in November at ‘The Rise of the Guardians’ premiere. It was a fantastic looking suit that was incredibly eye-catching, but his pants needed to fit more like Zachary’s. The fit of the jacket is great and the addition of the wide tie (and the manly beard) gave him a more powerful look. I love the decision to wear the contrast-collar shirt as well.

J.J. Abrams: The director has very much been keeping-up-with-the-Jones’ so to speak, as his classic suits and stand-out ties have been favoured just as much as the cast of this movie.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Berlin Photocall Menswear Round Up

Both Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto joined Zoe Saldana and Alice Eve on the rooftop of the China Club for the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Berlin photocall in Germany on Sunday.

Chris Pine: The actor, who loves his Ralph Lauren tan shoes, wore a moss-green suit with a matching cardigan and blue shirt on this occasion. I love that even his photocall style remains sharp during this photocall.

Zachary Quinto: Chris’s co-star, however, opted for more casual attire, this time opting for military-green pants, a checked shirt and a leather jacket. Laidback is one thing; battered shoes I just can’t deal with.
