Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Met Men

To celebrate the new ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday, some of the biggest celebs walked down the red carpet. In honour of the exhibit, many of the men chose to give their formal looks a bit of punk inspiration, which made for an exciting menswear event.

Eddie Redmayne: The red carpet phenom added another beautiful look to his collection, wearing a Dior Homme navy-blue wool tuxedo with black grosgrain peak lapels. As always, it fit just right. To finish it off, Eddie added a white cotton shirt, a black satin bow tie, a white pocket square, and black patent-leather derbies.

Frank Ocean: In a Givenchy black tuxedo, Frank looked incredibly dapper for the event. His two-button notch-lapel tux fit well and he paired it classically with a white shirt and black bow tie. To give the outfit a little kick of punk, Frank opted for shoes with silver studs going around the soles – a very cool addition.

Joshua Jackson: I’ve never been OK with wearing a red tie to a red carpet event. It’s cheesy. I don’t like that aspect of his outfit, but I love the beige linen lapels on his Dior Homme black suit. Even though it’s a small detail on his jacket, it made for a stylish look. Joshua topped it off with a white cotton shirt and a Chanel ‘J12 Black Matte Ceramic’ watch.

Frank Ocean In Lanvin - 2013 Time 100 Gala

Like Claire Danes, Frank Ocean also wore a head-to-toe Lanvin look to the 2013 Time Gala held at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

His classic, yet cool look featured a white pleated-front tuxedo shirt worn with blue-and-black zebra-print silk jacquard pants from the Fall 2012 collection, styled with a matching bow tie and 3-button black cashmere overcoat.

Black lizard Lanvin shoes perfected the look.

Frank has been one of my best-dressed men of the year; this look confirms his status. I just wish he looked a little bit more impressed.

Frank Ocean Fashion Week

As the new star of the fashion world, musician Frank Ocean made regular appearances during Paris Fashion Week. He was spotted in the front row at five shows – Dior, Givenchy, Margiela, Chanel (not pictured), and Valentino.

Christian Dior: To view the new Dior collection, Frank donned some Dior of his own. He arrived looking smooth in a Dior Homme white poplin cotton shirt and Dior Homme black wool garbadine pants. It was a clean look, which he finished off casually with a pair of black-and-blue Nike sneakers. This was my favourite look of the bunch. Frank also sported Dior Homme at the Grammys last month.

Givenchy: At the second show, he switched it up a bit by wearing the casual on top. He wisely swapped his sneakers for a pair of black shoes and flashy socks, and matched it with a pair of charcoal coloured trousers. To add that bit of casual, Frank wore a Givenchy black sweatshirt from the Fall 2013 collection under his black coat.

Maison Martin Margiela: For Margiela, Frank opted for a pair of ill-fitted burgundy pants and an untucked white shirt. A black topcoat and his Nike sneakers completed his look. Unlike his first two outfits, in this Frank looks a bit disheveled.

Valentino: Half of this look was great. The other half was not. Sporting one of the hottest trends of the season, Frank wore a great pair of slim-fit camo pants, along with his sneakers – again. Unfortunately, he matched it with a baggy P.A.M. T-shirt from the Spring 2013 collection that says, “Psychedelic Life.” Not a psychedelic shirt, Frank.

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.

BDOTW Mens 18 Feb

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.

Grammys Mens 1

While the Grammys are always a stage for wild fashion from the women’s side, the men typically tend to stay on the classic side – with a few exceptions, of course. The menswear always has a lot of diversity, ranging from dapper to disgusting. This year featured a lot of monochromatic looks and, unfortunately, a lot of bad tailoring.

Justin Timberlake: He’s back and he’s looking better than ever. Suiting up in collaboration with Tom Ford was clearly a wondrous decision. Justin made his return to the Grammys wearing an impeccably tailored Tom Ford black tuxedo with a hip twist on the jacket. His shawl collar was matched with a white-edged black pocket square and a droopy black bow tie. What made this outfit so perfect, though, was the way he was able to honour the old school while staying so modern. He kept his look classic with the black studs on his shirt, those amazing black-and-white loafers, and white dress socks. And he even wore a black cummerbund. He’s easily my best dressed of the Grammys.

Frank Ocean: Prior to performing at the Grammys wearing a custom yellow Band of Outsiders tuxedo, Frank wore a Dior Homme navy wool broadcloth Teddy jacket with silver buttons, paired with a navy wool and silk round neck sleeveless sweater, and navy wool broadcloth slim pants for the red carpet. Both looks showcased his cool, laid-back style.

Ed Sheeran: The red-haired English singer gave a grand performance on stage, but not so much on the red carpet. Ed wore a poorly tailored Burberry navy tuxedo with a two-toned notch lapel. The problem was that his tux fit terribly: the waist was not tailored; the sleeves and pants were too long; and those shoes did not work. I’m all for sneakers with a suit, and I like those particular sneakers, but the rest of his outfit is so bad that it distracts from his shoes. A little more effort next time, Ed.
