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.

Menswear Red Carpet Weekend Roundup

Menswear round up

From London to Los Angeles, here’s a look at the men who made an impression over the weekend.

Dan Stevens: The British actor stepped out at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards on Sunday night, wearing a dashing black Burberry tux and bow tie. It doesn’t get much more dashing than that.

Andrew Garfield: The actor attended the ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ photocall at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver Studios on Saturday alongside Emma Stone. Like his lovely costar, he also showed Band of Outsiders some love, wearing one of the label’s khaki-coloured jackets. He paired his casual outerwear choice with a blue-and-red plaid shirt, dark denim, and black loafers.

Brad Pitt: The actor wore a black tux and matching bow tie by Saint Laurent, joining his wife-to-be Angelina Jolie and their son Maddox on the red carpet at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards on Saturday evening.

GQ Men Of The Year Party

GQ Men Of The Year PartyIt’s no surprise that Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o weren’t the only ones cutting handsome—and pretty—profiles at the GQ 2013 ‘Men of the Year’ party, hosted last night in Los Angeles, California. There was plenty more eye candy to spare.

James Van Der Beek: The actor brought out his own baby blues in a Todd Snyder ensemble, ratcheting up his grey plaid suit with a blue shirt, lighter tie and mixed-print pocket square. The grand finale of the look, though, were those blue shoelaces on his brown loafers.

Darby Stanchfield: Decked out in a burgundy-red Emilio De La Morena Fall 2012 gown, the ‘Scandal’ star mixed sophistication and edginess with this streamlined, lacquered-bodice dress, which actually set off her slicked-back, flame-toned locks. You may remember Julianne Hough previously wore this gown.

Chace Crawford: The actor opted for a light dove-grey, wool two-button small notch lapel suit by Dior Homme, which he wore with a white cotton, button-down shirt, black silk tie and black leather derbies. Something about the suit wasn’t as sizzling as his stare.

Michael B. Jordan In Louis Vuitton & Prada – GQ Dinner & Men Of The Year Party

Micheal B Jordan - GQ Celebrations

Michael B. Jordan doubled up on the GQ festivities this week, attending both the dinner and the GQ Men Of The Year Party in Los Angeles, California.

On Monday, the actor attended the GQ Dinner in a gray-checkered Louis Vuitton suit, consisting of a double-breasted blazer and slim trousers. He partnered the look with a crisp white shirt, light blue tie, and black Christian Louboutin ‘New Platers Fiori’ shoes.

The following evening, he switched things up at the GQ Men Of The Year Party with a many-shades-of-blue Prada suit. Between the navy shirt, matching trousers, dark aqua-coloured blazer, printed tie, and polished black monk-strap oxfords, it felt a little busy to me.

That said, there’s not a lot Michael B. Jordan can do to look less than handsome.

LACMA 2013 Art + Film Gala Menswear Roundup1

The boys also came out to play for the LACMA Art + Film Gala 2013 on Saturday evening and as you would expect, it was classic tuxedo’s all the way.

Michael B. Jordan: The actor wore a Gucci midnight blue peak lapel one button Signoria tuxedo with a white evening shirt, a navy satin bowtie and black leather laceups.

Sting: The British singer who performed at the event, donned a Gucci Fall 2013 black notch lapel wool Duke blazer with a contrasting velvet collar styled with a white dress shirt, black satin tie and black leather boots. The open top button keeps this look rock and roll.

Jake Gyllenhaal: In a sea of all black and midnight-blue, Jake stood out for me in his Gucci one of kind Marseille velvet shawl lapel one button midnight blue tuxedo styled with a white dress shirt, navy satin bowtie and black leather laceups. The velvet trims and a bowtie sealed the win.
