Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna – ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Sydney Photocall

"Star Trek Into Darkness" - Portraits

Karl Urban, Chris Pine, J. J. Abrams and Zachary Quinto attended the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ photocall in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday.

Karl Urban: On a gloriously beautiful day, I wish the New Zealander had opted for a lighter-coloured suit.

Chris Pine: In a sea of navy and grey, Chris stands out for me here in his blue notched-lapel two-button Ermenegildo Zegna suit, styled with a white dress shirt and blue silk pocket square. I’m thankful that he opted to wear tan shoes on this occasion.

J.J. Abrams: The director/producer sported a semi-casual look featuring jeans, a plaid shirt and grey blazer.

Zachary Quinto: On such a warm, sunny day, I’m not sure the actor really needed the sweater.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kate Hudson In Reem Acra, Chris Pine In Louis Vuitton & Zachary Levi In Vivienne Westwood MAN

BDOTW 22 April

Kate Hudson was the runaway winner for this week’s Best Dressed, wearing a heavenly Reem Acra gown.

Her sweetheart-neckline gown, which was impeccably styled, couldn’t have been more perfect for the Tiffany & Co. Ball.

The biggest surprise was that Eddie Redmayne didn’t win the menswear vote; you picked the gorgeous Chris Pine, who looked dapper in his double-breasted Louis Vuitton suit.

I loved Zachary Levi wearing a slick Vivienne Westwood MAN grey slim-fit suit with a bold yellow tie.

Menswear Red Carpet Round Up

Menswear Red Carpet Round Up

Here is a roundup of some of the menswear which has taken to the red carpet this week.

Zachary Levi: The actor joined his co-star Alexis Bledel on the red carpet for the ‘Remember Sunday’ Disney premiere looking very smart in a grey Vivienne Westwood Man Spring 2013 suit. Usually there is some kind of quirk that comes with a Westwood suit, but this is a surprisingly strait-laced look so I appreciate Zachary’s decision to add a bright-yellow tie. Where most dudes would’ve added black shoes to a light-grey suit – see Chris Pine – Zac opted for a taupe pair with blue laces. Definitely a front runner in the best-dressed department.

Zac Efron: The actor joined co-star Heather Graham on the red carpet for the New York screening of ‘Any Price’ last night wearing a classic charcoal suit by Balenciaga. His two-button notched-lapel suit was styled with a striped tie, white pocket square and Bally ‘Gosbel’ shoes.

Josh Duhamel: Opting for a casual red carpet look, Josh attended the US launch of ‘Planet Ocean’ presented by Omega watches last night. With spring in the air, he also joined the current trend of wearing a light-coloured suit. Keeping things interesting, he styled his sand suit with a blue-and-white shirt. Sporting the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean GoodPlanet timepiece, the actor also opted for taupe-coloured shoes.

Usher: The singer took to the stage to perform at the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction in LA on Thursday evening. Usher’s contemporary twist on a classic menswear look saw him don a simple white shirt accented with a red bow tie which matched his crystal-accented red loafers. Adding yet more sparkle to his performance look, his black pants featured diamante detailing, with a cool Balenciaga leather jacket rounding things off.

CinemaCon 2013 Awards Menswear Round Up

CinemaCon 2013 Awards Menswear Round Up

Many guys joined Elizabeth Banks on the red carpet for the CinemaCon 2013 Awards Ceremony, with grey being the order of the day.

Chris Pine: The actor opted for a dark-grey double-breasted Louis Vuitton suit with a striped shirt and a blue micro-dot tie which made his blue eyes pop. We don’t see many double-breasted suits on the red carpet, so this is a rare treat which is worn so well by the actor.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Going for the light-coloured-suit-and-dark-shoes combo, the actor picked up the ‘Breakthrough Film Maker of the Year Award’ looking very dapper and deservedly smug. His Prada grey glendale plaid two button suit, was styled with a white dress shirt and burgundy silk dot tie.

Morgan Freeman: Following suit, the ‘Conviction’ actor styled his light-grey suit with a black shirt to match his patent-leather shoes. Even though he is wearing shades indoors, he still looks so cool.

Armie Hammer: Appearing not to have received the grey suit memo, the actor stood apart from the rest, collecting his ‘Male Star of Tomorrow Award’ wearing a petrol-blue Tom Ford suit with a blue-and-white gingham shirt and copper tie. Despite the fact that we are deep into spring, these autumnal colours work well on the handsome actor.

Chris Pine In Z Zegna – ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ CinemaCon Presentation

Chris Pine In Z Zegna - ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ CinemaCon Presentation

Chris Pine joined his ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ co-star Alice Eve at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada on Tuesday during CinemaCon for Paramount Pictures’ presentation of their upcoming movie.

Also opting for a light-hued look, the handsome actor wore a grey-and-white striped Z Zegna two-piece peak-lapel suit with black patent-leather shoes.

As CinemaCon is a fairly informal event, the actor opted not to wear a tie.

From the ankles up I like this look. It would’ve been perfect had he opted for a lighter-coloured shoe; the black feels so heavy with his lightweight summery suit.

2013 Oscars Menswear Round Up

2013 Oscars Menswear Round Up

While the women looked absolutely gorgeous at the 2013 Oscars, the men used the biggest black tie event of the year to showcase some truly dapper looks. A large majority of the men stuck to the classic black and white, as opposed to navy and grey, and it paid off. With all the cleaned-up looks, it was surprising to see that the most popular trend of the night was facial hair. From full beards to scruff, the men of the Oscars made a manly statement.

Channing Tatum: Before dancing with Charlize Theron in the opening, the popular actor donned a nicely fitted Gucci made-to-order navy three-piece tux with Martin Katz studs and cufflinks. His outfit featured a classy shawl lapel and shirt studs. He rocked his tux all night with a huge smile thanks to his glowingly beautiful pregnant wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

Eddie Redmayne: Here’s the one you’ve all been waiting for. The always-dapper Eddie Redmayne arrived in a slim-fit Alexander McQueen black tuxedo with wide peak lapels. Like he’s shown over the past few months, Eddie knows how a suit should fit, and this tux fit perfectly. Finishing off his look with a tribute to the old school, he wore gold studs and, my favourite part, black tuxedo slippers.

Ben Affleck: That fantastic beard is back. The director and producer of Best Picture winner ‘Argo’ wore a Gucci black three-piece tuxedo that featured peak lapels. With his black bow tie, Ben wore a white shirt with a wing-tip collar. The pants could have been a bit shorter, but what he lacks in tailoring he makes up for in facial hair. Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner, also wore Gucci to the event.
