Red Carpet Fashion Awards

2014 Grammy Awards Menswear RoundupOn the whole, the fashion hit a flat note at the 2014 Grammy Awards, held on Sunday (January 26) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. So I was rather relieved, if not mildly amused, to see the guys turn up the volume on their sartorial statements. Here, a roundup of menswear glimpsed at the show.

Pharrell Williams: The singer-producer, who accepted the record of the year trophy with Daft Punk, couldn’t be missed last night, thanks to his absurdly over-sized Vivienne Westwood Mountain Hat. The rest of the look—a red track jacket, jeans and faded untied boots—took a back seat to the mushy, mountie topper, which naturally drew some silly comparisons and a host of memes. But at least there was some attitude on the red carpet.

Daft Punk: The big winners of the night, the ‘Lucky’ French duo danced their way around in head-to-toe Saint Laurent ensembles. Of course, what really made those dark tuxes and bow ties pop were the silver and gold robot heads, the matching metallic gloves, and the Saint Laurent jodhpur boots in silvery glitter leather.

BDOTW 11 1

It was a busy weekend with the Baby2Baby Gala, BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards, EMAs, AFI Fest premieres and two sightings of Blake Lively, so I hope you go back a few pages to catch up.

Kate Hudson swept you off your feet this week so you crowned her best dressed in her gorgeous Gucci gown.

I, on the other hand, opted for Gisele Bündchen in Atelier Versace. There were many wow moments this week, but this one made me feel very nostalgic and reminisce on the real supermodel era.

When it came to the fellas, our selections differed too. You loved Tom Hiddleston, and who can blame you? The guy knows how to wear a suit with such confidence.

Pharrell Williams got my vote in Lanvin. He looked uber cool and savvy and only narrowly beat out Gerard Butler, who looked very cool in all blue.

Pharrell Williams Loves Lanvin

Pharrell Williams wore two Lanvin suits this week.

As always both looks are uber stylish with a cool swagger which always guarantees him a place on best dressed lists.

It looks like he’s jumped on the high-water/no socks Tinie Tempah trend as he rolled up his trousers for both looks.

WSJ. Magazine’s ‘Innovator of the Year’ Awards 2013: Joining Gisele Bündchen on the red carpet, he opted for a light slate-blue two button blazer styled with black trousers, a black silk bow tie, and a pair of navy blue derbies in metallic techno silk. While I love the look I think grey trousers with those shoes would’ve looked even better.

‘Keep A Child Alive’ 10th Annual Black Ball: It was head-to-toe black for Alicia Keys’ Ball Ball; working a three-piece Lanvin tuxedo with a silk bow tie and patent leather shoes.

The first look is my favourite as he looks very savvy. Which do you favour?

GQ 1

Excluding Eddie Redmayne, the GQ Men Of The Year Awards held at The Royal Opera House in London yesterday evening was awash with handsome men in dark suits.

Justin Timberlake (in Tom Ford) and Pharrell Williams (in Lanvin) both opted for textured suits with bow ties jazzing up the traditional tux, while David Gandy kept it simple and classic in his Henry Poole & Co. bespoke three-piece suit.

2013 BET Awards Menswear Round Up

Fashionable (and fearless) femmes kept the red-carpet hot at the 2013 BET Awards, hosted last night at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California. But, amid the sparkle and the skin, the guys brought their own brand of flash.

Pharrell Williams: The rapper didn’t blur any lines with his straight-laced style, cleaning up in a charcoal-grey Lanvin look that featured a shrunken blazer worn over a black-and-white chequerboard shirt and festooned with a perky bow tie. Yes, the rolled and tapered pant legs could have been better tailored, but with his cocky cool-kid shades, Pharrell could pull off almost anything.

Miguel: The best male R&B pop artist winner swooped onto the red carpet flaunting a trendster McQ Alexander McQueen monochromatic ensemble. His swallow-print McQ shirt was slightly Hitchcock-ian. But he tamed the chaotic birds by tucking them into skinny black jeans, all topped off with a quiff and studded lace-up shoes.

Justin Timberlake: JT took a sleek, all-black approach for his star-studded stage time with Pharrell and Snoop Dogg, as the song-and-dance man worked a textured Tom Ford suit and satin bow-tie paired with Christian Louboutin ‘New Orleans Flat’ black patent leather lace-up dress shoes.
