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.

Pharrell Williams In Lanvin – The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles

Pharrell Williams In Lanvin - The Night That Changed America A Grammy Salute To The Beatles

Pharrell Williams joined Anna Kendrick, Katy Perry, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend on the red carpet at ‘The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles’ held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Monday (January 27) in Los Angeles, California, where he was a guest performer.

Still working that oversized Vivienne Westwood Mountain hat, the musician turned to his favourite brand; Lanvin, for his red carpet look.

Keeping it casual once again; he wore a grey tee, grey cardigan and black jeans with his Lanvin Fall 2012 wool plaid coat with Mongolian lamb shearling collar.

Styled with faded untied boots, he wrapped up his look with an emerald stone crucifix and a pearl accented Chanel necklace.

Not many guys could rock a Chanel necklace and make it work; Pharrell does.

Do you agree?

2014 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup

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.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kate Hudson In Gucci & Gisele Bundchen In Atelier Versace

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 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.
