Gucci @ 2017 LACMA Art + Film Gala

As the 2017 LACMA Art + Film Gala in LA on Saturday (November 4) was presented by Gucci, there were quite a number of Gucci looks in attendance from the label’s devoted darlings.

Dakota Johnson: You might recognize this Gucci Spring 2018 embellished, plisse gown from the Red Carpet Wish List for Mandy Moore. Yet, its languid, boudoir glamour was actually in keeping with Dakota’s style, too. I know some may qualify the swoop of her hairstyle as a bit mature, and I wouldn’t disagree. However, I did like the drama brought forth from her long earrings and oxblood lip.

Zoe Saldana: I think Zoe may be the only one who could wear this Gucci gown and not make me want to immediately rip off the giant pink rose corsages from the flamenco, caped shoulders.

Jared Leto In Gucci – Blade Runner 2049 Mexico Photocall

As Jared Leto has worn Gucci his last three times out this month, I was pretty certain the trend might continue at the recent ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Mexico photocall. And it did.

Florals again permeated his latest Gucci look, as he borrowed from the girls with this top that riffed on the PJs trend.

Given his tendency to go to sartorial extremes, I was a bit surprised he didn’t wear the floral pants, too, instead opting for red track pants.

Barring the neon-orange-accented sneakers, which were a bit clunky with the look, this was actually a more casually subdued offering from Jared—even if it could look as if he’s half-dressed for bed and for the gym.

Jared Leto In Gucci – BoF 500 Gala

Another day, another over-the-top pattern (or five) for Jared Leto, as he brought his zany sartorial show to the BoF 500 Gala on Saturday (September 9) in New York City, where Selena Gomez was also in attendance.

This ensemble marks the third Gucci Fall 2017 look he’s worn in practically as many days, with equally loud choices at the GQ Men of the Year Awards and Harpers BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld.’

Maybe I’m building up a tolerance to his wacky plaids and graphic prints, but this third retro-facing look struck me as a bit less comical than his prior two overloaded style antics.

Regardless, if you’re going to flaunt such a bold statement, at least make sure the pants are properly tailored. The silliest part of this look was the pants dragging the ground.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

There were a number of men who made an impression at the 2017 BET Awards in LA. But, away from that event, there were more fellows who have made an impression on the red carpet.

Chadwick Boseman: First up, Chadwick scored a style slam dunk at the 2017 NBA Awards on Monday (June 26) in New York City. This Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2017 striped suit was a seasonal, refreshing alternative to the standard-issue colours of black, navy, and charcoal. Plus, I love that he skipped the tie on this sleek dress shirt.

Filipe Valle Costa: At the premiere of FX’s ‘Snowfall,’ on Monday (June 26) in LA, Filipe looked sharp in a David Hart Fall 2017 suit styled with Cesare Pacciotti shoes and a Rolex timepiece. The festive plaid did seem a bit heavy, but he lightened the mood with his unbuttoned, white dress shirt.

Miles Brown: I’m not sure it could get any more adorable than Miles who was also at the 2017 NBA Awards. With his custom TO Collection suit, paired with Florsheim shoes, he gets major style points. He wears bold plaid and a bow tie better than men three times his age.

Gucci Cruise 2018 Front Row

The front row at the Gucci Cruise 2018 fashion show which took lace a the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy yesterday (May 29) was filled with famous faces, and some incredibly fashion-forward outfits.

Kirsten Dunst: Fresh from her successful Cannes adventure, the actress was still in the mood to embrace colour wearing a Gucci Spring 2017 two-piece, with the skirt being the standout feature. We don’t often see Kirsten rock bold patterns, so this added a fun element to her look.

Donald Glover: The ‘Atlanta’ star is a man of many talents; now he can add snappy dresser to the list too. You couldn’t help but notice him as his outfit was the perfect combination of comfort and style. There is nothing better than a bold floral shirt on a fella, especially when tempered with a cool navy shorts and white leather Gucci ‘Ace’ sneakers. However, it’s that wide-brimmed hat that really sells this look.

Dakota Johnson: Proving that she is definitely ready for spring, Datoka’s black halterneck Gucci Fall 2017 dress with bright pink patterns was the epitome of laid-back but chic. I love how the accessories brightened the look further.

2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Menswear Roundup

It was definitely ladies night at the 2017 Oscars parties, but a few men joined in on the sartorial parade of looks at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (February 26).

Armie Hammer: Sleek and sophisticated, the actor dressed to impress in a Tom Ford tux styled with a Montblanc timepiece, but it was his wife, Elizabeth Chambers, who really put on the glitz in this berry-hued Monique Lhuillier Resort 2017 embellished gown.

Jared Leto: We can also rely on Jared to keep us on our toes, and he did just that with this Gucci Spring 2017 ensemble paired with Gucci black leather GG Marmont loafers. With the craziness of this spitfire look, he obviously wanted to stand out from the crowd—and that he did.
