Elle Style Awards Men

Here is a quick look at some of the fellas on the red carpet from this evening’s (February 18) Elle Style Awards 2014 held at London’s One Embankment.

Pharrell Williams: Not picking up the Best Dressed Man of the Year (although he should have) the musician was happy with his International Recording Artist of the Year award. No surprise that he’s wearing his go-to designer Alber Elbaz; wearing a head-to-toe Lanvin Pre-Fall 2014 look consisting of a black leopard effect tuxedo blazer with satin peak lapels, and black-and-green two-tone cropped trousers. His white cotton tuxedo shirt with accented pearl buttons and styled with a signature black bow-tie, with black leather derbies rounding out his look. Thank god he left his Vivienne Westwood Mountain hat at home.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper continues his epic run this week, attending his third fashion-related event in as many days. On this occasion to collect his UK Recording Artist Of The Year award you could see him from a mile away wearing a manly magenta Dolce & Gabbana double breasted suit, styled with a black bow-tie and loafers, obviously. It’s a bold look. Not many dudes would even attempt to pull it off, but I gotta say he makes it work, even though I am not a fan of shiny suits.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lea Seydoux In Prada & Miu Miu, Paloma Faith In Burberry Prorsum, Ian Somerhalder in Z Zegna & David Gandy

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lea Seydoux In Prada & Miu Miu, Paloma Faith In Burberry Prorsum

Our first Best Dressed of the Week of 2014 was quite a close-fought race.

Only one percent separated the ladies, with Lea Seydoux in her colourful printed Miu Miu dress and Prada coat your eventual winner.

I’m sure no one is surprised my heart went to Paloma Faith in her goosebump-inducing Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 ensemble; as always, my girl never lets me down. The look was soft and sensual with plenty of drama.

Both making us consider pastel-hued coats this winter.

Best Dressed Of The Week -  Ian Somerhalder in Z Zegna & David Gandy

Two dapper dans took the prize for best dressed in the menswear department.

Ian Somerhalder in Z Zegna was your winner; something about his cheeky charm and the relaxed nature of his look no doubt won you over.

I selected David Gandy because, well, he is David Gandy, and that is now synonymous with great style and suave three-piece suits with impeccable tailoring.

David Gandy @ The London Collections: Men Autumn/Winter 2014

David Gandy  The London Collections Men AutumnWinter 2014

David Gandy was also taking a front row seat alongside Tinie Tempah this week during Men’s Collection Fashion Week.

Topshop Design Show: A checked double-breasted suit with a white tee is always likely to make me swoon.

Richard James Fall 2014 Show: Looking like a Wall Street banker, the model looked very suave donning a striped blue suit styled with a striped shirt and brown tie. I perhaps would’ve hated the tie, but the cream wool coat brings it all together nicely.

Burberry Prorsum: In perhaps my favourite look of the bunch, the dark-blue three-piece suit was masterfully styled with a dotted tie and matching pocket square, with his brown-framed shades complementing his shoes.

Which one makes you go weak at the knees?

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Bradley Cooper: Joining a host of lovely ladies on the red carpet at the 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala, the actor continued his impeccable red carpet run wearing a classic Tom Ford suit. While the likes of Adam Lambert continue to pique my interesting with off-beat suits, there is nothing quite like a traditional suit and bow tie that is guaranteed to make me swoon.

David Gandy: The handsome model joined Kylie Minogue at Dolce & Gabbana’s Bond Street store for their London Collections: Men Event. Smouldering, as he does, David wore a Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit with a luxe velvet blazer with satin lapels styled with a grey tie and brown shoes for an interesting twist.

Michael B Jordan: The actor, who still needs to work on his red carpet pose, attended the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s 8th Annual Kirk Douglas Award For Excellence In Film Gala on Sunday (January 5) in Santa Barbara, California wearing a shawl-collar-lapel Hugo Boss suit with Christian Louboutin ‘New Platers’ flats.

Idris Elba: The British actor joined his ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ co-star, Naomie Harris, on the red carpet for the 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala also wearing a traditional suit and bow tie. He also wore Louboutins; opting for the tassel accented ‘Dada’ flats.

In this sea of black suits who stands out for you?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Elizabeth Banks In Versace & David Gandy

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.

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.
