Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Ferragamo 3

Over the past few days, the guys have taken to the red carpet in a bevy of sartorial statements ranging from trendy to traditional.

Jared Leto: At the “Dallas Buyers Club” Los Angeles premiere yesterday at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the actor was feeling blue in his Alexander McQueen ensemble that featured a bright cerulean blazer, semi-sheer black top and black skinny pants with zipper detail styled with Bruno Magli boots. Long, messy ombre locks added to his dressed-up rocker vibe.

Josh Duhamel: Josh was looking as dapper as possible at yesterday’s Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Inaugural Gala in Beverly Hills, California, where his black tux and tie was polished and professional.

Dev Patel: Eschewing the basic black tux, the Salvatore Ferragamo-clad actor accompanied his leading lady, Freida Pinto, at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Inaugural Gala. He gets points in my book just for stepping outside the style box with his dynamic, burgundy-red suit.

Menswear Midweek RoundUp

Menswear Roundup 16 Oct

Here is a quick roundup of some of the fellas who took to the red carpet yesterday evening.

Daniel Radcliffe: The actor took home the Best Actor award at the Attitude Awards in recognition of his performance in ‘Kill Your Darlings’, looking very sharp and smart – as always – wearing a classic Dolce & Gabbana shawl-collar maroon and black tux with a pleated white shirt and bow tie.

James Franco: The actor wore a laidback Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 look featuring a black quilted leather jacket with a blue wool crewneck sweater, a grey dress shirt, blue denim jeans and black leather boots while making a guest appearance on ‘The Today Show’ and for his arrival at the Ed Sullivan Theatre for the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’. This might be the first time I have ever seen James not wearing a suit.

Oliver Cheshire: Channelling his inner Hugh Hefner, the model wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit featuring a rich-burgundy velvet jacket, a polka-dotted scarf and a smart bow tie. The model fared much better in the style stakes than his girlfriend Pixie Lott. I’m still trying to figure out what is going on there.

Josh Brolin: Menswear is having a Dolce & Gabbana appreciation moment at present; Josh also wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit to the ‘Labor Day’ London Film Festival premiere alongside a radiant Kate Winslet on Monday night. Instead of classic black, he went for a sleek grey suit with a modern sheen styled with a white dress shirt and dark-grey tie to complete his impossibly handsome look.

From this bunch I love Oliver’s Christmas-is-around-the-corner velvet blazer and Josh’s sharply tailored suit and rugged good looks.

Best Dressed of the Week – Jessica Alba In Ralph Lauren, Daniel Radcliffe In David Hart & Hilary Rhoda In Prabal Gurung

BDOTW

At the 11th hour Jessica Alba won your hearts in the beautiful Ralph Lauren look which she wore to the brand’s Spring 2014 show during New York Fashion Week.

Not only were you enamoured of the chic nature of her look, but also the effortless styling and contrast between the heavy knit top and floaty chiffon skirt.

Jessica was so close to winning for me, but Hilary Rhoda in her sexy asymmetrical Prabal Gurung frock with cut-out details was my eventual choice.

Like Jessica, it was both perfectly styled and effortlessly groomed. I couldn’t take my eyes off her.

When it came to the fellas, we were on the same track once again by voting for Daniel Radcliffe in David Hart.

I have recently looked back over a few of his red carpet appearances because I was trying to discover when he became such a snazzy red carpet dresser. You just can’t help but be hypnotized by the rich grape colour and impeccable cut and tailoring of his suit.

Toronto Film Festival Menswear Roundup Part 2

Toronto Film Festival Menswear Roundup

Throughout the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada, the men have brought their own sartorial statements—from guy-glam and cool-stud to handsome-hunk.

Daniel Radcliffe: The British actor was brave and bold in a deep purple David Hart suit at the ‘Kill Your Darlings’ premiere, held at Roy Thomson Hall. Boasting polish and pizzazz, with a contrasting striped white-and-blue-grey button-down and a dark mini-polka-dot tie, this look was plum-perfect.

Jake Gyllenhaal: The handsome actor wore a velvety Burberry Tailoring three-piece suit at the ‘Prisoners’ premiere at Ryerson Theatre. Offsetting the dark shade, a baby-blue shirt and navy tie brought out Jake’s own baby blues, whilst faded brown shoes contributed a rugged edge.

Ewan McGregor: Sauntering around with his suave flair, Ewan took a more casual approach in his Neil Barrett black blazer and pants at the ‘August: Osage County’ premiere at Roy Thomson Hall. He skipped the tie and put on a pair of lace-up shoes that had a distinct creeper mentality.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Scarlett Johansson In Versace, Lupita Nyong’o In Prada & Daniel Radcliffe In David Hart

BDOTW

Scarlett Johansson’s return to her blonde bombshell va-va-voom status wearing a gorgeous Versace gown was your favourite this week.

I was prepared to also give my vote to ScarJo in such an impressive busy week until Friday evening, when I was blown away by Lupita Nyong’o in Prada.

It’s the one look which got me excited about what she’s going to wear next and, if you have been paying attention, she’s yet to fail.

Daniel Radcliffe in David Hart was my favourite this week and I was surprised he was yours too, as I was positive you would pick Eddie Redmayne in Gucci.

Between the sharp tailoring, electrifying colour and his overall attitude, he totally made me swoon above all others.
