Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

From awards galas to premieres and more, there were plenty of occasions for the men to be out in force on the red carpet. Here’s a look at the men who have been front and centre.

Justin Timberlake: Proving that the velvet trend isn’t just for the ladies, Justin cut a thoroughly suave profile in this dark-green velvet Tom Ford tuxedo at the 9th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday (November 11) in Hollywood. I love this luxe twist on the classic tux.

Jason Momoa: Although his styling may have been more in the manner of edgy-bohemian, Jason’s custom Valentino tuxedo was quite smooth and polished at the ‘Justice League’ LA premiere on Monday (November 13).

Jared Leto: It’s Jared Leto and it’s an MTV event, so it’s only natural that he would go sartorially wild at the 2017 MTV EMAs on Sunday (November 12) in London with his latest Gucci endeavor—a Fall 2017 look that was even more subversively rebellious than the runway presentation. The colour discord between the lavender, bubblegum, and red track pants made me want to shield my eyes—and we haven’t even gotten to the tidy-whitey sneakers.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

No better way to round out the week than with a group of handsome guys on the red carpet. Here’s who was out and about yesterday (September 7).

Armie Hammer: At the ‘Call Me By Your Name’ premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, Armie echoed his own baby blues with shades of navy in this Ralph Lauren ensemble, where the suede, double-breasted jacket was the star piece. I’m sure the look had a lot more dimension in person.

Shia LaBeouf: Also at the Toronto Film Festival, Shia attended the ‘Borg/McEnroe’ premiere, where he emboldened his dark Prada suit with a colourful paisley dress shirt. We’ve seen nearly the identical look on Dane DeHaan.

Timothée Chalamet: Joining Armie at the ‘Call Me By Your Name’ premiere, Timothée had another shade of blue in mind with this cerulean suit from the Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Fall 2017 collection. The fit could have been better, especially through the trousers, so as to quell any sort of retro prom references.

‘Palo Alto’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere Menswear Roundup

'Palo Alto' Tribeca Film Festival Premiere Menswear Roundup

It wasn’t only the ladies who were putting their best feet forward on the red carpet for the ‘Palo Alto’ Tribeca Film Festival premiere.

James Franco: No guessing the actor was wearing a Gucci suit. The notched-lapel two-button suit in a summery light-grey hue with pinstripes was styled with a white dress shirt, navy tie and black lace-ups. His accessories were a pair of Gucci ultra-light ‘techno color’ aviator sunglasses.

Jack Kilmer: The actor also donned a pinstriped suit, but his Saint Laurent look had a cooler edge without the tie and the unnecessary sunglasses.

Menswear Midweek RoundUp

Menswear Roundup 16 Oct

Here is a quick roundup of some of the fellas who took to the red carpet yesterday evening.

Daniel Radcliffe: The actor took home the Best Actor award at the Attitude Awards in recognition of his performance in ‘Kill Your Darlings’, looking very sharp and smart – as always – wearing a classic Dolce & Gabbana shawl-collar maroon and black tux with a pleated white shirt and bow tie.

James Franco: The actor wore a laidback Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 look featuring a black quilted leather jacket with a blue wool crewneck sweater, a grey dress shirt, blue denim jeans and black leather boots while making a guest appearance on ‘The Today Show’ and for his arrival at the Ed Sullivan Theatre for the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’. This might be the first time I have ever seen James not wearing a suit.

Oliver Cheshire: Channelling his inner Hugh Hefner, the model wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit featuring a rich-burgundy velvet jacket, a polka-dotted scarf and a smart bow tie. The model fared much better in the style stakes than his girlfriend Pixie Lott. I’m still trying to figure out what is going on there.

Josh Brolin: Menswear is having a Dolce & Gabbana appreciation moment at present; Josh also wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit to the ‘Labor Day’ London Film Festival premiere alongside a radiant Kate Winslet on Monday night. Instead of classic black, he went for a sleek grey suit with a modern sheen styled with a white dress shirt and dark-grey tie to complete his impossibly handsome look.

From this bunch I love Oliver’s Christmas-is-around-the-corner velvet blazer and Josh’s sharply tailored suit and rugged good looks.

Blake Lively, Freida Pinto, Jessica Chastain and More In Gucci – ‘Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live’ Concert

Chime For Change The Sound Of Change Live 2

Gucci’s new global campaign saw some of the world’s most celebrated artists come together today at London’s Twickenham stadium for the ‘Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live’ concert event which is aimed to raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s issues globally.

The royal box and media room saw many of Gucci’s brand ambassadors from around the world together to support this worthy cause.

Blake Lively: With an arm stacked full of Lorraine Schwartz colourful bracelets and hot-pink Christian Louboutin pumps with a gold toe-cap, Mrs Reynolds opted to wear a stark white mini Gucci frock with a cape. Her hairstyle is the one thing preventing me from loving this look from head-to-toe.

Freida Pinto: With a touch of Saturday Night Fever; the Indian actress opted for a tailored white Gucci suit with black lapels styled with Gucci accessories including a bright-bit coral clutch.

Jessica Chastain: The actress, who was co-presenting with James Franco, wore a black Gucci Fall 2013 frock with a lace yoke, which was shorter than the same look that took to the runway. Adding an edge to her frock, she wore spiked Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps.

James Franco’s Cannes Film Festival Style

James Franco's Cannes Film Festival Style

The Cannes Film Festival is a grand hub of menswear suits and tuxedos. James Franco has certainly been one of the best, wearing well-cut suits along with his trademark smile.

The Art of Elysium, Rabbit Bandini and Leon Max event for Ahna O’Reilly: Supporting his co-star Ahna O’Reilly, James stepped out in a blue notch-lapel Gucci suit. Usually fastening both jacket buttons is a no-no, but James did it multiple times and still got the slimming effect of one button. Along with the suit, he paired a white shirt with a matching blue tie. He also wore black shoes and aviators. I would have preferred brown shoes with such a light suit, but the black looks good.

As I Lay Dying photocall: The second look came on Monday during the photocall before the film ‘As I Lay Dying’, which he both directed and starred in. For this he opted for a well-tailored black Gucci suit with notch lapels. He finished it off with a white shirt and a navy tie. The messy hairdo looks great too.

As I Lay Dying premiere: On Monday night, James went fully formal in an amazing-looking black three-piece Gucci tux with peak lapels. The dapper look was finished off traditionally with a white shirt and black bow tie. This was the best fit of the three.

I was pleasantly surprised by his three looks. Each of them fit perfectly and he kept them simple, even with a lighter-blue suit. Of the three, I think my favorite is the first look: the blue suit. It was a great colour for the event.
