Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Menswear Round Up 1

Let’s hear it for the boys, who have been criss-crossing countries this week to hit up the red-carpet scenes in style.

Darren Criss: In head-to-toe Emporio Armani, the ‘Glee’ cutie joined Kristen Wiig at the  ‘Imogene’ Paris premiere, as part of the 2013 Champs Élysées Film Festival at Publicis Champs Élysées in France on Tuesday. Even with his scruff and unruly curls, he still managed to look polished in this pewter-gray suit, worn with a micro-stripe shirt and micro-dot tie.

Simon Baker: The Aussie actor took to the field at the ‘Prix de Diane Longines’ 2013 at Hippodrome de Chantilly on Sunday in Chantilly, France, adding modern appeal to his standard dark suit and tie with heavy-rimmed sunglasses and camel lace-up oxford shoes.

Jesse Metcalfe: The hunky star had a model moment in his Reiss suit, as he made the rounds at a party hosted by ‘Men’s Health’ x Liberty x Oliver Spencer during the London Collections: MEN SS14 at Liberty on Monday in London. The bold blue colour juxtaposed with the stark white, tieless shirt and contrasting printed pocket square are what make this look stand out.

JW Anderson for Versus by Versace Collection Launch Party

Donatella Versace hosted an event at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City on Wednesday evening to celebrate the launch of the JW Anderson for Versus by Versace collection.

Heidi Klum: The ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge wore a lace-accented LBD from the Versace Spring 2013 collection with black pumps. My issue is not the revealing nature of her dress or her pumps, but her ghostly makeup.

Taylor Momsen: Perhaps Heidi was taking makeup tips from Taylor Momsen, who took to the red carpet sporting a paler complexion than usual with her trademark racoon eyes. I haven’t been a fan of Taylor’s style since she morphed into her ‘Gossip Girl’ character Jenny, but I have to say I love this harlequin Versace suit. Sometimes she takes the grunge too far, but this more polished look I can get on board with.

Hayden Panettiere: With most going for all-black, hard-edged looks, Hayden opted for a beige-coloured flirty frock from the Versace Spring 2013 collection, which she styled with nude pumps and a clutch which matched her dress.

2013 SAG Awards Menswear Round UpWith gowns galore parading down awards-gala red carpets, it’s always hard to focus on the tuxes—no matter how handsome they and their inhabitants are. But at the 2013 SAG Awards, hosted last night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, the men had their moment. Like many of the girls, some of the guys played with color—albeit to mixed success. But it all made for a far more entertaining and colorful show.

Eddie Redmayne: The ‘Les Miserables’ star continues to deliver great red-carpet performances. The British actor carried off a slimly tailored tuxedo by BOSS Black, rendered in a luxe brown, crushed velvet. He paired it with a white shirt and matching dress shoes from the label. In a sea of black and blue, this delicious chocolate color was a smooth statement—so was Eddie’s cool-boy coif.

Bradley Cooper: The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actor and nominee chose Tom Ford for his big night. The midnight navy color of his single-breasted tux, featuring a black satin shawl collar, reminded me of some of the similarly colored gowns seen last night, such as the one from Jennifer Lawrence. I wish his black bow tie didn’t appear crooked, throwing the polish of this look awry.

Cory Monteith: This ‘Glee’ cutie stepped outside the norm with his Calvin Klein tuxedo paired with a sleek set of black Christian Louboutin loafers. His cufflinks and tie bar were by Ox and Bull Trading Co. and his timepiece from Versace. The exaggerated peak lapel in black contrasted sharply with the light heather grey of the single-breasted jacket. But was Cory red-carpet-royalty or just prom-king ready?

Darren Criss joined many lovely ladies on the red carpet at The Hollywood Palladium, to honour Katy Perry at the ‘Trevor Live’ event in California on Sunday evening.

We are used to seeing men don a suit, but Darren decided upon an unexpected carpet look.

He wore an Emporio Armani Spring 2013 knit double-breasted navy jacket with gold buttons; styled with a light-blue shirt, grey pants and a maroon The Tie Bar tie.

Black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘James loafers with a metal toe-cap and tassel details completed his look.

I love the this geek chic look. It almost has a back-to-school feel to it.
