Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Eddie Redmayne In Tom Ford - London Evening Standard British Film Awards

Eddie Redmayne continued his current streak of impeccable style yesterday evening at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards in London, where he was nominated in the ‘Best Actor’ category for ‘Les Miserables.’

For this event, the British actor wore a Tom Ford charcoal suit from the Spring 2013 collection.

His English-tailored jacket featured peak lapels and a ticket pocket. Eddie matched his suit with a silver knit tie, and a silver pocket square.

The 31-year-old actor has proven multiple times in the last two months that he can wear just about anything and look great. This is no different.

At the Santa Barbara International Film Festival Virtuoso Award Ceremony, held in Santa Barbara, California, Redmayne was seen in a Tom Ford blue suit. Since the premiere of ‘Les Miserables,’ he has sported suits designed by Burberry, Hugo Boss and Tom Ford.
