Menswear Midweek Red Carpet Roundup

Men 3 december

Here is a quick roundup of the men who have suited up in the name of fashion and movie premieres so far this week.

David Beckham: The former soccer star wore a Dior Homme wool and silk shawl-collar tuxedo. Black on black on black never looked so good. I love how he added a World AIDS Day red ribbon in support of the charity and his wife Victoria Beckham, who is a UNAIDS ambassador, while attending the British Fashion Awards.

Orlando Bloom: While the hair is a tad girlified for my liking, one can’t fault the British actor’s navy blue Lanvin silk shawl-collar tuxedo worn to the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ on Monday alongside Evangeline Lilly.

Harry Styles: Always looking very sharp, Harry wore a red vertical-striped suit from Lanvin’s Fall 2014 collection. Probably committing something of a fashion faux pas wearing a French brand to the British Fashion Awards, who has time to nitpick when this mod look suits his style to a T?

David Gandy & Jamie Redknapp In Thom Sweeney – Thom Sweeney Store Opening

David Gandy & Jamie Redknapp In Thom Sweeney

Thom Sweeney has been the go-to designer for British celebs both home and abroad, plus the likes of the well-dressed James Marsden have also been spotted donning the designer’s well-tailored suits.

Last night (November 13) a few of Thom’s fans joined him for the opening of his new Ready to Wear & Made to Measure Store in located at 33A Bruton Place, London, England.

David Gandy: Always topping best-dressed lists, he is likely to achieve that feat once again wearing a Thom Sweeney light-grey double-breasted suit, light-blue cotton shirt and speckled charcoal wool tie. Yes, I did swoon, firstly at the overall sheer magnitude of how impeccable he looks, and secondly because I got lost in those blue eyes.

Jamie Redknapp: Always well-dressed and often in Thom Sweeney, I was not surprised to see the former soccer star in attendance with his Isabel Marant-clad wife, Louise Redknapp. While she opted for a more laidback look which including an Isabel Marant embellished wool jacket which is to die for, he looked as sharp as ever wearing a Thom Sweeney dark-grey single-breasted suit styled with a light-blue cotton button-down shirt and a dark-green tie.

Dilemmas, dilemmas, who wore it best? I’m gonna flip a coin for this one.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Emmy Rossum In Oscar de la Renta, Abigail Spencer In Paule Ka & David Gandy In Marks & Spencer

Best Dressed Of The Week - Emmy Rossum In Oscar de la Renta, Abigail Spencer In Paule Ka & David Gandy In Marks & Spencer

Emmy Rossum was your best dressed this week wearing a gorgeous strapless tiered Oscar de la Renta gown to the LA Opera.

My vote went to Abigail Spencer in her black and white Paule Ka gown worn to the ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ LA premiere; as I said at the time, I don’t think she’s ever looked better – she totally blew me away.

Even with very stiff competition from Ryan Reynolds and Dan Stevens, Dandy Gandy, not surprisingly, was the runaway winner. Some may think he only gets votes because he is so damn good looking, but look again – the man knows how to wear a suit. On this occasion his Marks & Spencer suit was tailored and styled to perfection.

David Gandy In Marks and Spencer - David Gandy For M&S Autograph Photocall

David Gandy attended a photocall to launch his underwear collection for Marks and Spencer Autograph held at a central London M&S store on Thursday (September 18).

While I’m sad he didn’t opt to showcase the collection, the model looked devilishly handsome in his biscuit-coloured Marks & Spencer suit.

I think when it comes to suit wearing to perfection, only Eddie Redmayne and David Beckham give David a run for his money.

And it’s not just the fit of the suit which he always gets right; it’s the styling.

Here he opts for a navy tie and pocket square with dark brown lace-ups and a gold timepiece to round out his suit.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kiernan Shipka In Marni & Nicole Kidman In Dolce & Gabbana

BDOTW 23 June

Nicole Kidman in Dolce & Gabbana and Kiernan Shipka in Marni were joint favourites for Best Dressed this week.

The styles couldn’t be more different. One was a stunning gown, the other a fashion forward strapless mini, both worthy of praise.

I had a hard choice selecting between the two also, but my eventual pick was the gorgeous Nicole Kidman.

When it came to the guys, your winner, by a long margin, was David ‘the always dapper’ Gandy. During London Collections he had another impressive week, donning three-piece suit after three-piece suit, each one more swoon-worthy than the last.

My choice was Raymond Lam. Formal with a laidback vibe, and uber stylish.

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 Menswear Front Row

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 Mens Front Row

The Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 menswear show took place during London Collections: Men at their usual home of Kensington Gardens this afternoon (June 17) in London, England. Usually there is an even mix of guys and gals, but this time the fellas dominated the front row.

Tinie Tempah: Perhaps needing a touch more grooming in the hair department, the rapper still looked dapper in his Burberry ivory suit with his standard Burberry cropped trousers, which he paired with a simple white tee. If his light-coloured suit didn’t signal summer, his Jimmy Choo ‘Hayman’ sandals definitely did.

Jourdan Dunn: As the Burberry model wasn’t walking today, she took a pew in the front row, working a casual biker-chic look that included the Burberry Prorsum leather biker jacket much loved by the likes of Keira Knightley and Ashley Madekwe.

David Gandy: Giving us two great looks in the space of two days, the handsome model also opted for a light-coloured blazer and white tee combo, adding a pair of navy slacks held up with a pair of braces.
