Idris Elba In Prada – ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ New York Premiere

Idris Elba In Prada - ‘Mandela Long Walk To Freedom’ New York Premiere

Idris Elba joined his leading lady, Naomie Harris, for the ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ New York premiere held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center yesterday evening.

The British actor donned a grey-melange kid-mohair suit with a lavender shirt and a smoke-grey micro-dot silk tie.

Black brushed-leather lace-up shoes completed his look.

This might be just a bit too shiny for my personal tastes, but there is no denying how good he looks.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear round up 12 nov
Here, a look at the men who made an impression at a round of red carpets yesterday, from New York to Los Angeles and London.

Idris Elba: At the ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Los Angeles premiere at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome, the actor struck a handsome profile in a navy-blue Burberry suit with contrasting charcoal-grey tie. It was a suave and sophisticated style move, and another welcome reprieve from the traditional black suit.

Ewan McGregor: The Scottish actor showed up to the British Independent Film Awards announcement event at St. Martin’s Lane Hotel in London, where he kept his look rather basic. His tie-less, all-black ensemble trended on the more casual side, with a blazer, T-shirt and trousers. The red cuffs made the statement here.

Orlando Bloom: In the midst of plenty of modish mavens, Orlando Bloom held his own at the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists event at New York City’s Spring Studios. Taking a more formal route, he dressed up in a Dior Homme navy wool micro-check, two-button notch-lapel suit, paired with a white cotton cut-away collar button-down shirt and brown suede Montaigne boots.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear thursday

Let’s hear it for the boys once again.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper, who turned 25 today, joined a host of lovely ladies and Idris Elba on the red carpet for the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year awards on Tuesday. He was, of course, wearing his favourite brand Dolce & Gabbana, wearing a three-piece suit including a velvet blazer and vest which had a festive cheer to it. The look packed in plenty of his signatures: bow tie, black-frame glasses, cropped trousers and loafers.

Zachary Quinto: For the Guggenheim International Gala, the ‘Star Trek’ actor donned a Dior Homme grey wool micro-check two-button small-notch-lapel blazer styled with a white cotton button-down shirt, washed ‘Second Round’ Dior Homme denim jeans, and black leather derbies. The blazer confuses me here.

Will Forte: The handsome actor took to the red carpet in New York City last night wearing a grey Simon Spurr suit with a teal-blue tie for the ‘Nebraska’ screening at the Paris Theater.

Dan Stevens: The British actor also attended the Guggenheim International Gala, sporting a dressed-down look. The difference is his look has considerably more finesse than Zachary’s.

Idris Elba In Gucci – Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Idris Elba In Gucci - Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Idris Elba deservedly took home the Man of the Year award at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel in London yesterday evening.

The ruggedly handsome British actor wore a pale-blue Gucci Fall 2013 felt equestrian coat with a velvet collar, while opting for a cool black wool long-sleeved polo shirt, twill riding pant and black leather loafer with gold horsebit detail sans socks.

Looking bad, in a very good way, the actor comes a close second in the best dressed at this event after Cate Blanchett.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Anja Rubik In Elie Saab Couture, Padma Lakshmi In Naeem Khan, Michael B. Jordan In Calvin Klein & Idris Elba In Burberry Prorsum

Best Dressed Of The Week - Anja Rubik In Elie Saab Couture, Padma Lakshmi In Naeem Khan

Anja Rubik won best dressed of the week by a very large margin in her Elie Saab Couture gown. You guys were truly enamoured by how graceful she looked in her sheer cape gown which she styled with a silver Corto Moltedo clutch.

There were so many I could’ve picked this week, but in the end I went with Padma Lakshmi in Naeem Khan. As a lover of colour, I was totally captivated by her strapless, striped gown.

Best Dressed Of The Week Michael B

The battle between Michael B. Jordan and Robert Pattinson raged on all weekend. His cool-blue Calvin Klein Collection suit styled with a grey tie was just 1% more stylish than Rob’s on this occasion.

I went with Idris Elba in Burberry Prorsum. I loved his winter coat and the overall laidback vibe of his rugged, semi-dressy look.
