Best Dressed Of The Week – Lupita Nyong’o In Ralph Lauren & Calvin Klein Collection and Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna Couture

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lupita Nyong'o In Ralph Lauren & Calvin Klein Collection and Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna Couture2

You know you are a fashion force to be reckoned with when on a best-dressed poll the only person you are in competition with is yourself. That is what happened this week when Lupita Nyong’o’s Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein Collection looks ended up first and second place.

The majority of you picked Lupita’s Ralph Lauren Golden Globes gown. I also loved this look, but my favourite was the Calvin Klein Collection custom gown.

The Ralph Lauren look had too much of a Gwyneth Paltrow/Zhang Ziyi déjà vu-ness about it, which lost it half a point.

However, don’t be surprised if the Ralph Lauren ends up in my BDOTY list ahead of the CK, because that cape is clearly the more memorable ‘I’ve really arrived’ look.

When it came to the fellas there was no such dilemma. It was Team Chris Pine all the way; he took looking devilishly handsome, in a classic Ermenegildo Zegna Couture suit, to a whole new level.

Chris Pine In Ralph Lauren Purple Label – ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’

Chris Pine In Ralph Lauren Purple Label - 'Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit'

Chris Pine, my best-dressed male from the Golden Globe Awards, was back out on the red carpet again last night (January 15) attending the premiere for his latest flick ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ held at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Smouldering, as he does, the actor turned to one of his preferred labels, Ralph Lauren Purple Label, for his suit.

The label may have been purple, but the two-button suit was black, styled with a crisp white open shirt and matching pocket square.

Max Verre black lace up wingtip shoes and a David Yurman silver pink ring rounded out his look.

It’s a simple ready-in-5 look, which solidifies that he is currently one of the best-dressed men to hit the red carpet.

2014 Golden Globe Awards Menswear Roundup

Golden Globes Men 1Flexing their sartorial strength, the guys glammed up for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, held last night (January 12) at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Here, an overview of the handsome highlights.

Matthew McConaughey: The big victor in the best actor category, the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ star was every bit a winner on the red carpet, too. His Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo featured a surprising emerald-green velvet blazer with contrasting black peak lapels, adding a swoon-worthy twist on the standard. His touch of scruff, meanwhile, was his way of putting a casual-cool spin on this formal entrance. His wife, Camila Alves, also shone rather brightly in a glittery, black Dolce & Gabbana gown that flaunted her enviable curves.

Chris Pine: Rocking the full beard, the actor embraced the classics with an impeccably tailored Ermenegildo Zegna Couture black, peak grosgrain lapel tuxedo, white dress shirt, and black bow tie. He finished the look with Tod’s black patent loafers and a David Yurman gold pinky ring.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Nicole Kidman In Christian Dior Couture, Chris Pine In Ralph Lauren & Jamie Redknapp In Thom Sweeney

BDOTW 21 May

Nicole Kidman in Christian Dior Couture was your eventual winner for Best Dressed this week.

The Cannes Film Festival juror blew us all away with her natural elegance, wearing the strapless floral dress with coral Dior shoes.

For the men we had different opinions. You guys just can’t get enough of the ruggedly handsome Chris Pine and his love of Ralph Lauren suits. The styling of his suit was very commendable; however, I opted for the boyishly handsome Jamie Redknapp.

The former soccer player opted for a classic suit and bow tie by Thom Sweeney. The suit fit to perfection, and you know I have a weakness for handsome men in three-piece suits.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ LA Premiere Menswear Round Up

'Star Trek Into Darkness' LA Premiere Menswear Round Up

The male stars of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ scrubbed up rather nicely for Tuesday night’s LA premiere held at the Dolby Theatre.

Chris Pine: The actor continues to stake his claim for Best Dressed Man of the Year, wearing another swoon-worthy well-tailored Ralph Lauren Purple Label suit. Continuing to stay faithful to his beloved Ralph Lauren tan shoes, they worked perfectly with his ink-blue double-breasted suit. I feel that the actor is becoming more adventurous, styling a printed coral tie with a checked shirt and blue-and-white pocket square. Ryan Gosling is expected at Cannes this week, but I can’t see him surpassing Chris in the style stakes: he is on fire at the moment.

Zachary Quinto: Usually I am a huge fan of Zachary’s style, but there is something very basic about this Dior Homme look. Very Topman. Not that there’s anything wrong with Topman, but I miss his quirky style?

Karl Urban: The New Zealander kept it simple in a charcoal suit with a white dress shirt.

Len Wiseman: The director cuddled up to his gorgeous wife Kate Beckinsale wearing a black two-button suit with a grey shirt. This look may have come off as meh as Karl’s but thankfully the red slim tie makes the look more interesting.

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.
