Red Carpet Fashion Awards

BDOTW Womens 18 Feb

Despite an amazing week of stunning gowns, it was a two clothes-horse race for the title of Best Dressed this week.

It was a close call, but you eventually picked Rihanna’s Alaia Grammy dress as your favourite, whereas I picked the runner-up Marion Cotillard.

We may grumble at the French actress always wearing Dior, but she wears it so well.

Many wouldn’t have been able to pull off this fashion-forward look with such ease, plus I love bold colour, which brightened up a cold and rainy evening in London.

When it came to men, our choices again couldn’t be more different. You picked the handsome Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen, whereas I opted for Frank Ocean in Dior Homme.

Aside from the sleek ink-blue colour, I loved that he wore such a laidback piece on a red carpet where most of the men opted for a classic tux. The Grammys is the one place to stand out and do something different so I’m glad he didn’t opt for a suit and tie.

BAFTA Men

Keeping it classic with black tuxedos and bow ties was prevalent on the red carpet at the EE British Academy Film Awards in London on Sunday. But a handful of biggest stars took a chance with navy colours and velvet fabrics. The risks paid off – for the most part.

Ben Affleck: In addition to taking home the award for Best Director, Bendefinitely took home the award for best male grooming. That dark beard looked amazing with his Gucci Made-to-Order midnight blue velvet Marseille tuxedo. His tux displayed two buttons and notch lapels. Along with his tux, Ben wore a skinny collared white shirt, a matching flat tie in a four-in-hand knot, and black leather lace ups.

Bradley Cooper: Everything below the neck looked incredible on the star of ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’ Wearing a Ferragamo midnight navy three-piece tux with black satin peak lapels, Bradley looked every bit the part of a Best Actor nominee. He even paired it with a bow tie that he needs to straighten out. Unfortunately, it looks like the rain got to him and his hair looks a bit sloppy, considering he’s wearing a tux.

Chris Tucker: If there was one man on the red carpet that ruined his look with the little things, it was Chris Tucker. The navy colour looks great, but he went from looking like a stud to looking like a stooge thanks to his accents. Chris is great, funny actor, but it takes a specific type of confidence and power to pull off lapels that wide – Chris doesn’t have it. And that droopy, oversized bow tie isn’t helping matters.

‘Les Miserables' Berlin Film Festival Premiere Menswear Round Up

Hugh Jackman and Eddie Redmayne, the two leading men of ‘Les Miserables,’ arrived at the Berlin Film Festival on Saturday, looking handsomely sharp alongside co-star Anne Hathaway.

Hugh Jackman: To celebrate their film, Hugh wore a midnight blue suit along with a shirt of a lighter shade of blue. To accent his look, the rugged Australian actor matched it with a black skinny tie and black leather boots. He looks fantastic and his slim fit pants are perfect with his boots. My only gripe comes from his jacket, which should be snugger around the waist. Hugh’s dedication to his fitness is well known, so he should be showing it off a little more with a tighter jacket to flaunt his V-shaped body.

Eddie Redmayne: As always, Eddie looks flawless in a perfectly tailored blue Alexander McQueen Fall 2013 royal blue mohair suit with peak lapels. He took a chance by wearing a one-button suit, which tends to only work with certain body types, but Eddie wears it wonderfully. His pants fit well with no break above his black lace ups, and his black and white patterned tie looks great with his white shirt. It’s just Eddie being Eddie.

Do you think they intentionally colour coordinated their looks?

The cast of the musical has gained much critical acclaim and won multiple awards thus far, including Hugh’s Golden Globe for Best Actor and Anne’s Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress. They will all be in attendance for tonight’s BAFTA Awards, so make sure you check back later.

BDOTW Bafta weeken

We agreed that Kerry Washington in her divine Oscar de la Renta gown was the best when it came to womenswear, but our picks for men differed.

You loved the sleek inexpensive Topman suit worn by Eddie Redmayne, while I was busy drooling over Josh Duhamel in Ralph Lauren.

Partly because of the colour, but the fact that he is so damn handsome also factored in my decision-making process.

Eddie Redmayne In Topman - 'Les Miserables' Paris Premiere

It seems every time Eddie Redmayne shows his face on a red carpet he tries to one-up himself.

He did it again on Wednesday while at the Paris premiere of ‘Les Miserables’ as part of the Avenue Du Cinema Festival, alongside co-star Anne Hathaway.

For this occasion, Eddie suited up in a camel multi-fleck Topman suit and a herringbone skinny tie.

To complete the ensemble, he added a pocket square, marbled brown shoes, and a light-blue shirt with a skinny collar. Wearing skinny lapels, a skinny collar and a skinny tie shows that Eddie understands the ratios.

As he’s shown lately, Eddie looks like one of the best-dressed men in Hollywood.

These cold weather fabrics are bulky so when it’s tailored it must be snug to the body, and this suit is tailored perfectly.

Instead of a BDOTW menswear poll, it should be renamed the Eddie Redmayne poll.
