Best Dressed Of The Week - Jessica Chastain in Saint Laurent, Padma Lakshmi in Cushnie et Ochs & Eddie Redmayne in Tom Ford

Jessica Chastain in her fairytale Saint Laurent gown was your best dressed this week.

I was somewhat surprised by the large margin of the lead considering the comments were that this gown was too prom-like and some objected to the embellished strap.

I, on the other hand, was picked up and swept away by Padma Lakshmi in her jaw-dropping Cushnie et Ochs gown.

The colour, her poise, the fit: it was a win, win, win all round and a contender for BDOTY for me.

As many of you said, your vote for Eddie Redmayne wasn’t just for this Tom Ford suit, but for all his looks, as each one was just as good as the last. He continues to steamroller the competition by such a large margin.

A Week In Eddie Redmayne’s Closet

A Week In Eddie Redmayne's Closet

Keeping up with Eddie Redmayne is no easy feat as the British actor, who is in the middle of promoting his new movie, ‘The Theory Of Everything’, has been living up to his best-dressed status at every event.

He was bold in burgundy Burberry at the BAFTA Los Angeles and Britannia Awards luncheon, styling his look with contrasting blue accessories for a truly diverse touch.

He looked so very debonair at the amfAR LA Inspiration Gala decked out in a satin-lapel suit by the honouree, Tom Ford, which might just be one of his best looks of all time. I just love the contrasting black pants for a less obvious pairing.

Last night he was at it again, and by ‘it’ I mean looking impeccable in a well-tailored shawl-collared suit at the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards.

Canvassing for other well-dressed males, such as James Marsden, Daniel Radcliffe, Benedict Cumberbatch or Miles Teller, for best-dressed male of the year is almost impossible when Eddie keeps blowing them out of the water like this.

He’s on fire.

Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen – ‘The Theory Of Everything’ LA Premiere

Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen - ‘The Theory Of Everything’ LA Premiere

Eddie Redmayne joined co-star Felicity Jones on the red carpet for the ‘The Theory Of Everything’ premiere held at AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Tuesday (October 28) in Beverly Hills, California.

The handsome British actor wore a navy-blue Alexander McQueen suit, opting for a smart plaid McQueen tie instead of the brand’s signature skull print.

It’s almost impossible not to be struck by the sharp tailoring, but it’s the luxurious sheen that elevates this look into suave status.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture & Eddie Redmayne In Gucci

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture & Eddie Redmayne In Gucci

If BDOTW was a race this week, Lily Collins lapped the other contestants several times taking 55% of the votes.

It appears that you were just as blown away as I was by her stunning Eli Saab Couture ombre gown, which I’m certain will now appear on many BDOTY lists.

For the fellas, Eddie Redmayne had only a 1% lead over fellow Gucci-clad actor Ryan Reynolds.

I picked Eddie as I preferred the white shirt and pocket square breaking up the look, plus the luxe velvet fabric and impeccable tailoring. I’m sure this may have been a factor in your decision-making process too.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Mens 23 Oct

It was another busy night on the red carpet for the heroes of Hollywood. Here is a quick look at what they wore.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor joined Lupita Nyong’o for the opening of the Bally flagship store in London. Wearing a more casual look than we’ve seen from the usually suited and booted actor, this Bally look featuring a pinstriped blazer for added sharpness gets a rousing thumbs up from me.

Eddie Redmayne: Joining fellow Brit star Felicity Jones for the screening of their latest movie, ‘The Theory Of Everything’, the former model was decked out in Gucci once again, also working a semi-casual look. Donning a white dress shirt and camel ’60s sport trousers, the royal-blue plain-knit crew-neck sweater injects a touch of charm, with the sunglasses giving the look a cool finish.

Menswear red carpet 21 october

Here is a quick rundown of some of the gentlemen who took to the red carpet yesterday (October 20) evening.

Ryan Reynolds: The actor joined his wife, Blake Lively, on the red carpet for the Angel Ball in New York City. Like Blake, he also wore Gucci, donning a Made to Order peak-lapel two-button Marseille tuxedo with a black evening shirt, navy silk bowtie and black leather lace-up shoes.

Eddie Redmayne: Making it a Gucci double, the British actor joined co-star Felicity Jones on the red carpet for ‘The Theory of Everything’ New York premiere decked out in a dark-blue Gucci Fall 2014 velvet ‘Dylan’ suit. We love the actor for his dabbling in colourful suits, but he looks just as good when he takes a walk on the dark side.
