Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Best Dressed Of The Week - Elizabeth Banks In Versace

We both crowned Queen Elizabeth Banks and the gorgeous David Gandy as best dressed this week.

Elizabeth looked stunning in her Versace orange gown which was just one of many great looks she presented to us during ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ promo tour.

David wasn’t all about this good looks; his attention to detail, colour coordination and impeccable sense of style earned him this weeks honour.

Menswear Thursday Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the fellas who have been on the red carpet over the past two days.

Nicholas Hoult: The British actor kept it simple and clean, wearing a Dolce & Gabbana charcoal-grey suit with an open white shirt and black patent shoes to the Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe launch party on Tuesday evening.

Gerard Butler: The Scottish actor attended the Women’s Guild Cedars-Sinai gala held at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California wearing a brown Dolce & Gabbana suit.
While I have expressed my dislike for brown fabrics on the red carpet, I have to say that this pinstriped two-button suit with a taupe shirt and micro-dot brown tie surprisingly wins me over.

David Gandy: The supermodel joined Nicholas Hoult on the red carpet for the Jaguar launch party. Having paid a lot of attention during his career, David stands head and shoulders above the others in his double-breasted suit. Not only do I love how well styled the look is, but also the mix of colours – olive, navy, green and sky-blue – all blend so well here. However, it’s the burgundy shoes which get a standing O. It’s not often we see a guy wearing a pair of shoes in colours other than black, tan or brown.

Best Dressed Of The Week - Laura Vandervoort in Alex Perry, Zachary Quinto in Dior Homme & David Gandy in Dolce & Gabbana

Best dressed was a tight race between Nicole Kidman in Prada and Laura Vandervoort in Alex Perry, with Laura the eventual winner.

Some of you were shocked to see Laura take the lead as you felt there wasn’t anything particularly special about her LWD but, as pointed out, it’s the styling which took this look into another league.

When it came to the fellas you had a harder time picking a winner; Zachary Quinto in Dior Homme and David Gandy in Dolce & Gabbana tied with 36% of your votes.

I can see the dilemma. Zachary’s look was sleek and this was quite a different look for him, whereas David’s dapper three-piece suit had us swooning.

I eventually went for David.

Menswear Midweek Roundup

Here is a roundup of some of the eye candy taking to the red carpet last night.

David Gandy: The hunky model joined the Christopher-Kane-clad Laura Whitmore and Laura Carmichael at the 2013 Scottish Fashion Awards 2013 held in London yesterday evening. Opting for something distinctively Italian, he smouldered in a Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit with a luxe velvet jacket with satin lapels topped off with a herringbone bow tie.

Michael Fassbender: For the New York screening of his movie ‘The Counselor’, the actor wore a laidback Emporio Armani look featuring jeans, a black blazer and a white shirt. Thankfully, his baby-blue eyes captivate me so much I can’t focus on how underwhelmed I am by his look.

Ralph Fiennes: A gala tribute was hosted in honour of Ralph Fiennes during the New York Film Festival yesterday evening. The British actor looked uber-chilled dressed in a sleek navy-blue Dior Homme wool two-button notch-lapel suit with a black cotton shirt and black leather derbies. This blue is a great colour for him.

Blake Lively was the overall winner for best dressed this week; she looked outstanding with a grownup sexy attitude, wearing a Gucci Resort 2014 leather dress with impeccable styling and a dark-blonde ‘do.

When it came to the fellas your pick was the handsome Dandy Gandy in his three-piece Dolce & Gabbana suit. The smouldering eyes, the handsome good looks, the suit: whatever your reason for voting for him, he deserved the win.

I, on the other hand, picked David Beckham in his classic Burberry Tailoring suit. You need not ask why.

Menswear Round Up

All eyes have been on the femmes and the fashion shows lately, what with Spring 2014 runway presentations in full bloom. But there is a handful of guys that managed to steal a stare away from all that catwalk action.

Chris Hemsworth: Gracing Italy with his handsomeness, the actor attended the ‘Rush The Movie’ premiere in Rome last weekend at the Auditorium della Conciliazione. His navy Giorgio Armani suit, paired with a lighter-blue button-down shirt and slate-blue tie, really highlighted his own baby blues.

David Gandy: The hot British model brought his intense, steely stare to the ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ London Fashion Week closing party at Annabel’s in England on Tuesday. He had his own shades of grey moment in a Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit, with a charcoal sport coat, matching tie and a black vest and trousers. The flash of a triangle pocket square accessorized the suave statement, whilst mahogany loafers provided the finishing contrast.

Hugh Jackman: The buff ‘X-Men’ star skipped the tie for his visit to the SiriusXM Studios in New York City yesterday. He was singing the blues in a tailored Louis Vuitton denim-look suit worn over a midnight-blue shirt. Do you like his more relaxed approach?
