‘That Awkward Moment’ New York Screening Menswear Roundup

'That Awkward Moment' New York Screening Menswear Roundup

Imogen Poots was quite the lucky lady sandwiched between three very fine (well-dressed) actors for the screening of their latest movie, ‘That Awkward Moment’, in New York City on Tuesday (January 22).

Zac Efron: The actor looked very dapper in his grey check Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit styled with a patterned tie and black leather lace-ups.

Michael B. Jordan: I’m sure you are not surprised to learn that Michael’s Vivienne Westwood Man Spring 2014 rust-coloured suit is my favourite here. Styled to perfection with an olive shirt and purple tie, this is easily one of the best looks of the year. I love that he often takes risks, shaking up menswear to keep the likes of me keenly interested. Tan Christian Louboutin flats and a white-gold Piaget ‘Altiplano’ timepiece rounded out his look. This look has me thinking we need a BDOTY list for men.

Miles Teller: While not so groundbreaking in his navy Z Zegna two-button notch-lapel three-piece suit and tie, the young actor looks very smart and polished, right down to his tan Louboutin shoes, which are the same as his co-star Michael’s.

AFI Awards 2014 Menswear Roundup

AFI Men

Lest you think it was a women’s-only affair, quite a few gents also attended the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

Bradley Cooper: The ‘American Hustle’ hottie looked smart in a navy Thom Sweeney suit. He created a classic look with his blue shirt and burgundy tie. You can’t argue with the classics.

Michael B. Jordan: The new kid on the Hollywood block knows how to get it done! The ‘That Awkward Moment’ star paired his black Gucci suit with a burgundy shirt and silver tie for the perfect amount of pizzazz for a luncheon event. A Piaget timepiece and Burberry Prorsum shoes completed the look.

2014 People’s Choice Awards Menswear Roundup

2014 People’s Choice Awards Menswear RoundupKicking off the new year in trendsetting fashion, the 2014 People’s Choice Awards’ red carpet at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California was ablaze last night (January 8) with PYTs and their handsome counterparts. Sure, the girls brought the trendy glam, but the guys showed off their own sartorial muscle, too.

Justin Timberlake: The entertainer, and three-time winner for Favourite Male Artist, R&B Artist and Album, balanced an armful of trophies while looking sharp in an all-black Tom Ford ensemble. That he went tieless and sported a bit of well-groomed scruff only contributed to the cool factor.

Ian Somerhalder: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ hottie scored the win for Favourite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor—and scored major style points with his Z Zegna navy blazer with button-down shirt and tie, which he handsomely dressed down with a pair of dark denim jeans, casual loafers and a touch of scruff. Of course, who was really looking at anything but those piercing baby blues.

Chris Colfer: The ‘Glee’ cutie showed off his Favourite Comedic TV Actor trophy in a Sand midnight-blue, velvet blazer paired with Citizens of Humanity ‘Blade’ tapered slim jeans, a white button-down shirt and black tie. Like Ian, he put a casual spin on his formal top half with dark denim jeans.

Michael B. Jordan In Calvin Klein & Viktor & Rolf Monsieur – New York Film Critics Circle Awards & 2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

Michael B Jordan In Calvin Klein & Viktor & Rolf Monsieur - New York Film Critics Circle Awards & 2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

Michael B. Jordan is the total package: handsome, talented, and not afraid to mix things up on the red carpet, especially in the footwear department.

New York Film Critics Circle Awards: On Monday (January 6) the actor looked very suave wearing a Calvin Klein black suit with an off-grey shirt and black tie accented with a tie pin. What makes this look stand out for me are his Christian Louboutin black-leather-and-grey-canvas lace-up ‘Bruno Orlato’ flats featuring a white sole, which may be a tad Mr Bojangles for some but they add flare and are perfectly colour coordinated to his look.

2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala: Joining Lea Seydoux, Jessica Chastain and his ‘Fruitvale Station’ co-star Melonie Diaz on Tuesday evening (January 7), the actor wore a Viktor & Rolf Monsieur gray wool-tweed suit with a black cotton shirt styled with another pair of slick Christian Louboutin shoes.

Both looks were rounded out with diamond stud earrings.

Which is my favourite? Well, the shoes in the first one are amazing but I love the cut of the Viktor & Rolf suit and the sheen of the tie, plus the black shirt is so very sexy with this look.

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Bradley Cooper: Joining a host of lovely ladies on the red carpet at the 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala, the actor continued his impeccable red carpet run wearing a classic Tom Ford suit. While the likes of Adam Lambert continue to pique my interesting with off-beat suits, there is nothing quite like a traditional suit and bow tie that is guaranteed to make me swoon.

David Gandy: The handsome model joined Kylie Minogue at Dolce & Gabbana’s Bond Street store for their London Collections: Men Event. Smouldering, as he does, David wore a Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit with a luxe velvet blazer with satin lapels styled with a grey tie and brown shoes for an interesting twist.

Michael B Jordan: The actor, who still needs to work on his red carpet pose, attended the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s 8th Annual Kirk Douglas Award For Excellence In Film Gala on Sunday (January 5) in Santa Barbara, California wearing a shawl-collar-lapel Hugo Boss suit with Christian Louboutin ‘New Platers’ flats.

Idris Elba: The British actor joined his ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ co-star, Naomie Harris, on the red carpet for the 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala also wearing a traditional suit and bow tie. He also wore Louboutins; opting for the tassel accented ‘Dada’ flats.

In this sea of black suits who stands out for you?

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 2 DecFrom movie premieres to the awards stage, the guys suited up over the past few days to hit the red carpet, impressing at every sartorial turn.

Orlando Bloom: Decked in a Lanvin Fall 2013 ensemble, Orlando attended ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Los Angeles premiere on Monday. Although his navy one-button tuxedo with black grosgrain shawl collar and white cotton dress shirt with French cuffs and antique silver cuff links were formal, his tie-less approach and black patent-leather, cap-toe sneakers kicked this look into more casual-cool territory.

Idris Elba: At the ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Paris premiere on Monday, Idris put his own spin on fifty shades of grey in a Dior Homme grey-checquered wool, notch-lapel two-button suit, paired with a black, cotton poplin shirt and a black silk tie. Grey loafers finished his outing; a nice departure from black.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor strode out his dapper best at the ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Los Angeles premiere. His Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo featured a luxe, deep mahogany velvet blazer with contrasting shawl lapel, worn with a charcoal-grey vest and tux-stripe pants and a pert black bow tie.
