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.

Menswear Weekend Roundup

Menswear1

Over the weekend, a handful of men were out and about in a range of eclectic and colourful ensembles. The traditional suit was completely missing in action among this group of guys, who were none too afraid to push the envelope beyond basic black.

David Gandy: The model was ever so dapper in his Marks & Spencer Best Of British Collection ensemble when he attended the One For The Boys Charity Ball during the London Collections: Men. With that steely stare, this handsome hot topic can pull off this hyper-tailored, three-piece suit including a plaid sport coat, white vest and dark pleated pants.

Kellan Lutz: At the 2014 MuchMusic Awards in Toronto, Canada, the actor hit the red carpet in a burgundy Ermenegildo Zegna two-button, notch lapel suit. His maroon tie may have been a bit askance, but it’s hard to argue with this eggplant-hued statement.

Luke Evans: Making quite the impression, Luke may have even out-dressed David at the One For the Boys Charity Ball. His Fendi Spring 2014 statement featured a chaotic pattern of blue and charcoal lines, which he complemented with a navy tie and patent blue, rubber-soled loafers. Too loud?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Coco Rocha in Christian Siriano & Hilary Rhoda in J. Mendel

BDOTW 9 June

Coco Rocha was your best dressed this week, donning a Christian Siriano Resort 2014 gown with a Heather-Huey-designed hat.

My pick was Hilary Rhoda. She can pretty much do no wrong on the red carpet, and wearing one of my favourite looks from J. Mendel’s Spring 2014 collection was one sure-fire way to seal this win.

David Gandy was your favourite fella to take the red carpet last week, looking dapper as always in his three-piece suit, while Zachary Levi’s two-tone Vivienne Westwood Man suit stood out for me.

Glamour Women of the Year Awards Menswear Roundup

Glamour Women of the Year Awards Menswear Roundup3

It wasn’t only beautiful women attending the Glamour Women of the Year Awards on Tuesday (June 3) in London; here is a quick look at the fellas.

Samuel L Jackson: As my mother would say, be careful what you wish for. I’m always harping on about menswear being a black, navy and grey affair, but here the actor shuns that trend, opting for a turquoise suit with a green print shirt, green satin tie and white slippers. Well, at least he tried something different.

Ryan Reynolds: The actor was on hand to present the Icon award to Dame Helen Mirren. Ryan looked very dapper wearing a Brunello Cucinelli blue herringbone suit with a striped tie styled with a white pocket square and brown shoes.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Adam Levine: The musician joined Keira Knightley on Saturday (April 26) for the premiere of ‘Being Again’. Looking very dapper Adam wore a Prada Uomo navy two-button suit with a white dress shirt and striped tie.

David Gandy: There aren’t many word of the devilishly handsome model who joined a host of starlets on the red carpet for the Fendi store opening in London on Thursday (May 1). Just a swift beating of the beats and silent admiration that one so handsome can always look so well put together.

Adam Lambert: Colourwise, Adam left both Adam Levine and David Gandy in the shade, standing out on the red carpet at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards wearing a green Kris Van Assche suit and black Saint Laurent shirt. My only wish for this look is that it fitted better. Love the styling however, especially those gold mirrored glasses from MYKITA & Bernhard Willhelm.
