Amy Adams In Antonio Berardi & Jennifer Lawrence In Alexander McQueen – ‘American Hustle’ Cast Photo Call

"American Hustle" Cast Photo CallOn Sunday, the ‘American Hustle’ cast congregated at the Crosby Stereet Hotel in New York City on Sunday for a photo call, where they didn’t exactly coordinate their looks, instead working an eclectic sartorial mix of outfits.

Amy Adams: Modishly monochromatic, the actress kept her look straightforward but sexy in an Antonio Berardi Resort 2014 v-neck dress that featured figure-shaping black side panels and a white waistband for definition. She styled the frock simply with black pumps, neutral makeup and a volume-enhanced blowout.

Christian Bale: The actor, who accessorized with a good bit of scruff, was casual-cool in a black button-up, slouchy jeans and slightly faded shoes.

Jennifer Lawrence: Once again eschewing Dior, Jennifer looked radiant in an Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 knit embossed dress in an incredible shade of intense blue, paired with a few well-placed yet minimal jewels by Dana Rebecca Designs, a ring by EF Collection, and the boldly pretty pop of her magenta lip. Ordinarily, I might object to the black tights and black pumps, but on this occasion, they just let the dress take top billing, as it should. She stood out like a style star here, among her more neutrally clad co-stars.

Bradley Cooper: Bradley was apparently donning his same Todd Snyder plaid shirt from the ‘American Hustle’ NYC after party, this time wearing it with dark denim.

Jeremy Renner: Keeping the guys’ informal theme going strong, Jeremy put on a pair of J Brand ‘Kane’ jeans, which he dressed up with a navy topcoat, then dressed down with a well-worn pair of black boots.

Jeremy Renner In Dior Homme – ‘American Hustle’ LA Screening

Jeremy Renner In Dior Homme - 'American Hustle' LA Screening

Jeremy Renner joined Amy Adams on the red carpet yesterday evening for the ‘American Hustle’ LA screening held at the Directors Guild Theater in California yesterday evening.

The actor donned a Dior Homme deep-blue wool notch-lapel tuxedo styled with a white cotton shirt, black silk tie and black patent-leather derbies.

We’ve seen many great suits this year but this is one of the most unique yet, as the suit has not only silk lapels but also silk detailing lining the front of the blazer, the pocket and the pants.

Is the silk overplayed here?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Nicole Kidman In Valentino Couture and Jesscia Chastain In Givenchy Couture

BDOTW Nicole & Jessica

Nicole Kidman was your clear winner for Best Dressed this week, wearing a Valentino Couture gown during Cannes Film Festival.

It was just one of many gowns worn by the Australian actress which swept us off our feet during the 12-day festival.

My pick was Jessica Chastain in Givenchy Couture. It was such an unexpected, bold choice for the usually reserved star. On a post of mostly neutral-coloured gowns, she really stood out.

BDOTW Men Tom & Jeremy

When it comes to men, our choices also greatly differed. You opted for the charming Tom Hiddleston in Alexander McQueen, while I selected Jeremy Renner in Lanvin.

While there isn’t much between them, for me the satin lapels and white pocket square added that much more refinement to Jeremy’s look to help me with my choice.

amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS Menswear Round Up

amfar men 2

There were many lovely ladies at the amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS yesterday evening. Here is a look at the men.

Adrien Brody: The actor wore a Roberto Cavalli tuxedo. I love everything about this look. Looking very debonair, Adrien donned a white tuxedo jacket with a black satin shawl collar, styled with shiny black pants and a unique white-and-black shirt, topped off with Cavalli loafers. Even those of you who don’t love shiny suits can’t help but admire this amazing suit.

Andres Velencoso: The Spanish model, aka Kylie Minogue’s boyfriend, also opted for a Cavalli suit. This classic look, with a black satin shawl collar and bow tie, was styled with patent-leather shoes.

Jeremy Renner: The actor looked very handsome wearing a one-button Lanvin tuxedo with black satin peak lapels, a white cotton dress shirt, a black satin bow tie, a white cotton pocket square, and black patent-leather lace-up dress shoes.

Zachary Quinto: The ‘Star Trek’ actor wore a black Giorgio Armani tuxedo. The classic look featured a black satin shawl collar – the menswear trend of the night – and a satin trim along his trousers.

Even though I love all four looks for being so well tailored and fitted, Adrien’s unique take totally wins me over.

Independent Spirit Awards Menswear Round Up

Independent Spirit Awards

While many of the men in attendance at the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday opted for the usual dark suits, several of the actors celebrated the warm temperatures with light colours. The event was held in Santa Monica, California.

Bradley Cooper: Now here’s something you don’t see much of anymore. Bradley is wearing an Armani three-button, grey suit. He matched his suit with a tan waistcoat, a white shirt and distressed brown shoes. I like the colour combination in the look, but he doesn’t look very polished. His pants are too long and those shoes don’t do his suit justice.

Andy Samberg: As the host of the show Andy looked incredibly dapper in a perfectly tailored tuxedo that featured a green, shawl lapel jacket. Under the tux, Andy wore a white French cuff shirt, black studs and matching cuff links. He styled his it all with a black bow tie, a white pocket square, a white flower on his lapel and Bruno Magli shoes.

Matthew McConaughey: Nominated for his role as the lead in ‘Killer Joe,’ Matthew showed off his trim body in a more casual outfit by Dolce & Gabbana. He wore a charcoal coloured waistcoat with matching pants and a striped shirt. The highlight of Matthew’s getup was the pop of colour from his Tod’s blue shoes. He also accessorized with a stylish sunglasses and a great timepiece on his wrist.

Jeremy Renner In Vivienne Westwood Man – ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’ Sydney Premiere

Jeremy Renner In Vivienne Westwood Man - ‘Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters’ Sydney Premiere

Jeremy Renner joined his beautiful co-star Gemma Arterton, on the red carpet at Event Cinemas in Sydney today for the Australian premiere of their latest movie, ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’.

He looked devilishly handsome wearing a Vivienne Westwood Man three-piece grey suit, which she styled with a white dress shirt, grey tie, a blue-and-white fringed scarf and grey shoes.

While grey isn’t my favourite colour, this delightful shade brings out his steel-blue eyes plus I love the addition of the scarf and his grey shoes in preference to the expected black or brown.
