Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art Collection New York Fashion Show

CHANEL Paris-Salzburg 2014 15  new york

Bold names filled the front row of the Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art Collection at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City on Tuesday (March 31), where the collection of stars naturally all wore their Chanel head-to-toe best to watch the Austrian-inspired designs take to the runway.

Dakota Johnson: The ’50 Shades of Grey’ star continued to break outside her black-and-white-color shell in a warmly neutral Chanel Spring 2014 Couture dress with tonal button detailing. The strength of this look was in the silhouette that played with proportion in the cropped jacket and sleeves and defined waist. Sophisticatedly subtle with an edge, the look was styled with a classic black Chanel bag and tough-chic shoe boots.

Helen Lasichanh and Pharrell Williams: The power couple were well-coordinated; she in a characteristic, cropped Chanel jacket in multi-colour tweed mixed with the urban appeal of a sporty-luxe pair of gold grid shorts. Black tights, biker boots, and a white shoulder bag completed the split-personality look that somehow worked for Helen. As the face of the Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 collection, Pharrell obliged in regal style, rocking out a double-breasted, military-inspired coat with long white shorts and a captain’s hat. It was a performance-ready look, so it was only fitting that he later took the stage with Cara Delevingne to sing ‘CC The World.’

Pharrell Williams In Adidas & Chanel – 2015 Grammy Awards

Pharrell Williams In Adidas - 2015 Grammy Awards

Pharrell Williams wore two looks (or is that three?) during the 2015 Grammy Awards where he picked up two awards for ‘Best Pop Solo Performance’ and ‘Best Urban Contemporary Album’ on Sunday (February 8) in LA.

Red Carpet: There was quite a stir about Pharrell’s Adidas look, with some saying it was too casual. Did people forget that this was the Grammys? I love the look for it’s typically cool and sporty vibe, perfectly styled with shoes with grey accents. The unique thing about this outfit is that it looked grey but under flash light it photographed white. I think the stir should’ve been saved for his wife Helen Lasichanh in her Adidas onesie. Unless you’re in a bob-sleigh team or an Olympic athlete, this is not a great look.

Performance: For the performance of his hit single ‘Happy’ , the singer wore a custom Chanel head-to-toe look. While I love the fun effervescent spirit of the look, he did look like an extra from ‘Hotel Budapest’.

Serpentine Gallery Summer Party Menswear Roundup

Serpentine Gallery Summer Party Menswear Roundup

Brioni co-hosted the annual Serpentine Gallery Summer Party held at The Serpentine Gallery on Tuesday (July 1) in London, England, so no prizes for guessing that all the boys were decked out in their wares from head to toe.

James Righton: The musician joined his wife Keira Knightley wearing a peaked-lapel black suit with a bow tie. I can’t say I’m 100% sold on the fit of the jacket here.

Pharrell Williams:
Giving his Vivienne Westwood mountain hats a much-needed break, the musician opted for a more modest hat to go along with his outfit. He wore a checked Brioni shawl-collared navy blazer with a simple white graphic tee and Levi jeans, styling the look with black sneakers with colourful prints and a selection of beaded necklaces.

Oscars 2014 & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscars menThe Oscars 2014 on Sunday (March 2), and the ensuing soirees, were a fashion feast for the senses, with high-wattage gowns swishing at every glam turn. But the men provided plenty of eye candy, as well, as they suited up in their sartorial best for the stylish super-event at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California followed by the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

Matthew McConaughey: The ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ Best Actor winner not only delivered a compelling acceptance speech, he also was convincingly decked out in a Dolce & Gabbana suit, Louboutin shoes and Chopard cufflinks. Always surprising us with his wild-card jackets, this one was a crispy ivory number, which he handsomely sported with a black vest, white button-down, black trousers and bowtie.

Bradley Cooper: Looking ever so dapper in a black Tom Ford tuxedo, paired with a black bow tie and Chopard cufflinks, the ‘American Hustle’ star and Best Supporting Actor nominee wore a side of handsome scruff with his classic ensemble

Pharrell Williams: Well, he wasn’t wearing the colossal hat, but the ‘Happy’ singer and nominee still turned heads with his cutoffs. The custom head-to-toe Lanvin look featured a black wool shawl-collar, one-button tuxedo with matching shorts, a white tuxedo shirt with ivory pearl buttons, a black satin bowtie and dark gray hand-polished calfskin derbies (sans socks, natch).  Yay or nay?

Brit Awards 2014 Menswear Roundup

Brit Awards men 1The Brit Awards 2014 on Wednesday (February 19) certainly brought some colourful, if not questionable, entrances from the starlets who crowded the O2 Arena in London, England. Not leaving the fashion fun to just the ladies, a crush of guys also flexed their sartorial strength.

Pharrell Williams: Yet again leaving his hat trick for another day, the entertainer returned to his favoured designer with this Lanvin charcoal-grey, lamé-effect two-button suit from the Hiver 2014 Pre-Collection. He paired the high-shine suit with a white tuxedo shirt with pearl buttons and a black satin bow tie, capping off the look with black patent leather derbies sans socks. Of course, he pulled his signature style move by rolling his pants into a cropped length to complete this cool-kid look.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper gave us his dapper best in a Dolce & Gabbana two-tone champagne and charcoal-grey ensemble, featuring a textured, dotted blazer and vest and cropped trousers. He wore the suit with a printed grey tie, white shirt and socks-less black loafers. Did you like his mixing and matching?

Elle Style Awards Menswear Roundup

Elle Style Awards Men

Here is a quick look at some of the fellas on the red carpet from this evening’s (February 18) Elle Style Awards 2014 held at London’s One Embankment.

Pharrell Williams: Not picking up the Best Dressed Man of the Year (although he should have) the musician was happy with his International Recording Artist of the Year award. No surprise that he’s wearing his go-to designer Alber Elbaz; wearing a head-to-toe Lanvin Pre-Fall 2014 look consisting of a black leopard effect tuxedo blazer with satin peak lapels, and black-and-green two-tone cropped trousers. His white cotton tuxedo shirt with accented pearl buttons and styled with a signature black bow-tie, with black leather derbies rounding out his look. Thank god he left his Vivienne Westwood Mountain hat at home.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper continues his epic run this week, attending his third fashion-related event in as many days. On this occasion to collect his UK Recording Artist Of The Year award you could see him from a mile away wearing a manly magenta Dolce & Gabbana double breasted suit, styled with a black bow-tie and loafers, obviously. It’s a bold look. Not many dudes would even attempt to pull it off, but I gotta say he makes it work, even though I am not a fan of shiny suits.
