Best Dressed Of The Week – Emmy Rossum In Carolina Herrera, Douglas Booth In Polo Ralph Lauren & Richard Madden In Thom Sweeney

BDOTW 8 June

Emmy Rossum’s BDOTY-worthy Carolina Herrera look was by far your best dressed this week. You won’t be surprised to learn that she was my favourite too.

When it came to the fellas, there was no separating the Brit boys Douglas Booth and Richard Madden in their Rolo Ralph Lauren and Thom Sweeney suits.

There were plenty of dapper gents this week, but I’m guessing the light-coloured summery suits played into your decision-making this week. I would agree, but give Douglas the edge. I still can’t get over Richard’s shoe choice.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Joining the girls for polo, a premiere, and the big fashion party that is the CFDA Awards, the guys showed off a round of eclectic looks over the past few days.

Chris Hemsworth: The actor struck a casually handsome profile at the Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park on Sunday (May 31) in London, England, re-purposing his Salvatore Ferragamo plaid sport coat for the occasion by pairing it with distressed denim jeans. You may remember he wore the full suit at the ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Los Angeles premiere.

Joshua Jackson
: Relying on the classics, he was suave in a Ralph Lauren Black Label black peak-lapel tuxedo at the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on Monday (June 1) in New York City. The bow tie seemed just a bit diminutive, though.

Douglas Booth: Also at the Audi Polo Challenge, Douglas wore an appropriately preppy look. I loved the baby-blue colour of his Polo Ralph Lauren jacket and trousers paired with slate-blue Ralph Lauren loafers—even if the suit could have used a quick steam.

Here is a quick look at the dapper gents attending New York and Toronto Film Festival premieres this week.

Douglas Booth: The handsome continues to prove why we often hand him a best dressed title each time he steps out on the red carpet. With navy being the colour of the moment in menswear, the actor sets his own pace opting for a green Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit styled with an Armani timepiece to the ‘Riot Club’ Toronto Film Festival premiere.

Rob Pattinson: The British actor was also staying true to his favourite brand: Gucci. I do love it when guys do something a bit different. Here Rob styles his navy notch-lapel two-button Marseille suit with a navy evening shirt and brown leather lace-ups while attending the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of ‘Maps Of The Stars’ on Tuesday (September 9). The colours couldn’t be more perfect as we slowly move towards autumn and the suit, as always, was a perfect fit. The usual dishevelment gave way to sleeker grooming, so this gets a thumbs up all round from me.

GQ Men Of The Year Awards Menswear Roundup

Even though the girls grabbed plenty of stares at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2), the evening was about the guys, after all. Many in the handsome bunch were naturally dressed to impress.

Douglas Booth: Rather appropriately attired in a bespoke BOSS Made to Measure suit to accept his Hugo Boss Most Stylish Man award, the actor didn’t leave anyone guessing as to his sartorial cred. He was as charming as ever in this navy-blue number. The perfect bow tie was my favourite part—the icing on the cake.

Dan Stevens: The British actor and one of the evening’s presenters wore a Dior Homme Prussian blue slim, shawl-collar tuxedo with a white cotton wing-tip tuxedo shirt and black patent leather derbies. The colour of the suit was obviously selected to bring out his intense baby-blue gaze, which helped detract from the fact that the black satin bow tie was rather oversized.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The Actor of the Year winner took a monochromatic approach in an all-black three-piece Spencer Hart suit and tie. He could have done better for his big night.

Here is a roundup of all the guys who took to the red carpet for various events last weekend, including Comic-Con and the Young Hollywood Awards.

Douglas Booth: The handsome British actor wore a smart-casual Polo Ralph Lauren look consisting of a khaki linen sport jacket, mint-green chinos, and a simple white tee and pocket square. The contrasting pair of navy suede brogues don’t ruin the look, but some tan loafers would’ve been preferred here.

Ansel Elgort: Brown, auburn, cinnamon, mud… call Ansel’s Prada Uomo Fall 2014 two-button lapel suit whatever colour you like. I am only getting through this by focusing on the tie. He can do so much better.

Eddie Redmayne: The always impeccably dressed actor wore a micro-checked blue and white suit with navy accents, including slippers which I would’ve swapped out for those nice navy Alexander McQueen loafers he wore during awards season.
