‘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.

James Franco In Gucci – ‘The Director’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

James Franco In Gucci - 'The Director' Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

James Franco attended the world premiere of his latest movie, ‘The Director’, during the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on Monday evening.

You won’t be surprised to see the actor wearing a suit by his favourite designer, Frida Giannini for Gucci.

His blue striped peaked-lapel two-button suit was styled with a white dress shirt and silk navy tie.

The pants maybe needed to be an inch shorter, but this is a slick look nonetheless.

James Franco In Gucci – The Tonight Show with Jay Leno & ‘Spring Breakers’ LA Premiere

James Franco In Gucci

To support his new films ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ and ‘Spring Breakers,’ actor James Franco made two suited-up appearances on Thursday in California.

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno: Early in the evening, James was at the NBC Studio in Burbank, California making a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’ For this he wore a Gucci black signoria suit with notch lapels. James opted for a black-on-black look with his shirt and leather lace-up shoes. It wasn’t completely black, however, as he went with a navy tie to finish it off.

‘Spring Breakers’ LA Premiere: He later headed to Hollywood for the ‘Spring Breakers’ premiere. Sticking with Gucci, as always, James sported a navy, peak lapel signoria suit with a pale blue shirt underneath. To style the suit he wore a blue tie and black shoes.

James cleaned up well at both events. Both suits fit nicely and he didn’t choose to go with the short pants like he did in Hollywood last week. I liked both looks but my favourite was the black-on-black because I preferred the fit of the blazer.

Which would you like to see up for BDOTW?
