Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick look at the dapper gents attending New York and Toronto Film Festival premieres this week.

Douglas Booth: The handsome continues to prove why we often hand him a best dressed title each time he steps out on the red carpet. With navy being the colour of the moment in menswear, the actor sets his own pace opting for a green Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit styled with an Armani timepiece to the ‘Riot Club’ Toronto Film Festival premiere.

Rob Pattinson: The British actor was also staying true to his favourite brand: Gucci. I do love it when guys do something a bit different. Here Rob styles his navy notch-lapel two-button Marseille suit with a navy evening shirt and brown leather lace-ups while attending the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of ‘Maps Of The Stars’ on Tuesday (September 9). The colours couldn’t be more perfect as we slowly move towards autumn and the suit, as always, was a perfect fit. The usual dishevelment gave way to sleeker grooming, so this gets a thumbs up all round from me.

Keira Knightley In Michael Van Der Ham – ‘Laggies’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Keira Knightley In Michael Van Der Ham - 'Laggies' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Keira Knightley attended the premiere of her film ‘Laggies’ at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on Wednesday (September 10).

For the occasion, the star wore a gorgeous navy-colored custom Michael Van Der Ham gown with black and silver beaded applique detailing, and tulle overlay skirt.

She paired the gown with stunning diamond and pearl jewels and simple black pumps.

Keira wears both the color navy and a boatneck neckline so well, and this intricate and creative look is a fun addition to her arsenal of lovely ensembles during TIFF.

A bright red lip was the perfect makeup choice to go with this gown, and paired with gray-lined eyes and slightly purple-tinged eyeshadow, the makeup look is a total win.

Even a slightly messy, low-slong ponytail, thanks in part to an extremely windy red carpet, doesn’t detract from the lovely look.

Keira Knightley In Stella McCartney – ‘Laggies’ Toronto Film Festival Photocall

Keira Knightley In Stella McCartney - 'Laggies' Toronto Film Festival Photocall

Keira Knightley attended a photocall for the film ‘Laggies’ at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on Wednesday (September 10).

The lovely star wore a pleated, high-necked Luchadores mask-print dress with asymmetrical ruffle detailing on the skirt from the Stella McCartney Resort 2015 collection.

Stella McCartney definitely knows how to have fun with fashion, and this dress proves it. It’s not every day that a garment with such humor also has such sophistication, but this dress knocks both out of the park.

Keira wears the look beautifully, and simple black pumps were the perfect footwear selection.

A loose updo, smudgy eyeshadow and coral cheeks and lips complete the effect.

Brit Marling In Proenza Schouler & Alexander McQueen – ‘The Keeping Room’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Brit Marling In Proenza Schouler & Alexander McQueen - 'The Keeping Room' Toronto  Film Festival Premiere

Brit Marling attended the premiere of ‘The Keeping Room’ at The Elgin on Monday (September 8) during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.

Looking to the archives for sartorial inspiration, the actress cut a dramatic profile in an Alexander McQueen Spring 2007 ivory high-waist skirt, emblazoned with a striking black swallow print.

Simplifying the styling of the bird-and-branch piece from its theatrical and historical runway incarnation, she modernized this statement McQueen design with a Proenza Schouler on-trend black crop top.

Brian Atwood heels and a Lee Savage mini clutch accessorized the ensemble, yet it was her beauty approach that really provided the heightened sense of glamour with her glossy blonde locks and intense oxblood-red lip.

Get The Look: Kate Bosworth’s ‘Still Alice’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere Hair & Makeup

Get The Look Kate Bosworth's 'Still Alice' Toronto Film Festival Premiere Hair & Makeup

Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff and celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with Kate Bosworth for the premiere of ‘Still Alice’ during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on Monday.

Here is how to get her stunning look.

MAKEUP

“The lady in RED. A red dress always leaves me wondering – do I go with a red lip or a nude lip? I decided to go for the RED,” said Pati on the beauty inspiration.

“The face is all about structure and contour. I spent time making sure every bone was sculpted, contoured, and highlighted. The same with the eye – no colour, just shades of skin. The cheek got a slight flush of a peachy bronze.”

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life, a soft red, was applied to Kate’s lips before a deeper red lipstick was added, with a lip brush, to contour the edges. Pati then used red lip gloss, straying from the outdated matte look, to brighten up the lips and mimic the shiny palettes of her dress.

HAIR

Bridget said, “My inspiration for Kate’s hair was a 90′s feel – sleek and modern.”

She started by applying a golf ball sized amount of Bumble and Bumble Thickening Mousse, starting at her roots and brushing it down to her ends. She then blew the hair out using a large round brush.

After her hair was dry, Bridget created a middle part and flat ironed her hair mid shift to ends using a T3 Flat Iron. Once hair was smooth, she took a small section on each side, just In front of the ear, and twisted the section tightly back. She then used a dab of paste to add shine and hold, and secured the two sections with a small clear plastic elastic.

Once the look was set, she used a bit of Moroccan Oil on the ends of her hair for shine and a quick spray of Oribe Superfine Hairspray.
