Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of all the guys who took to the red carpet for various events last weekend, including Comic-Con and the Young Hollywood Awards.

Douglas Booth: The handsome British actor wore a smart-casual Polo Ralph Lauren look consisting of a khaki linen sport jacket, mint-green chinos, and a simple white tee and pocket square. The contrasting pair of navy suede brogues don’t ruin the look, but some tan loafers would’ve been preferred here.

Ansel Elgort: Brown, auburn, cinnamon, mud… call Ansel’s Prada Uomo Fall 2014 two-button lapel suit whatever colour you like. I am only getting through this by focusing on the tie. He can do so much better.

Eddie Redmayne: The always impeccably dressed actor wore a micro-checked blue and white suit with navy accents, including slippers which I would’ve swapped out for those nice navy Alexander McQueen loafers he wore during awards season.

‘Iron Man 3′ LA Premiere Menswear Round Up

Iron Men 3 Menwear

Here is a roundup of some of the handsome dudes who attended the ‘Iron Man 3’ LA premiere in Hollywood last night.

Robert Downey Jr: After starting this tour wearing colourful suits, the actor is playing it safe – by his standards – for the last few outings. On this occasion, he donned a black striped three-piece suit with a light-grey shirt and orange printed tie and pocket square. I love that he always wears sneakers with his suits, but on this occasion they don’t work for me. The stark white is blinding against the black; grey would’ve been preferred.

Peter Facinelli: The ‘Twilight’ actor was by far my favourite, working a navy-blue-and-camel-coloured look, showcasing a less formal way to wear a suit and still make the ladies swoon.

Zachary Levi: My crush on Zachary’s style deepens. He looked very dapper, wearing a suit from British retailer Reiss. His Reiss ‘Rimini’ three-piece bright-blue suit was styled with a white dress shirt, white pocket square, beige polka-dot tie and tan shoes.

Robert Downey Jr In Gucci – ‘Iron Man 3′ Photocall & Premiere

Robert Downey Jr In Gucci - 'Iron Man 3' Photocall & Premiere

Robert Downey Jr. did a Gucci double in London this week while promoting his latest movie, ‘Iron Man 3’.

Photocall: For the photocall he opted for a summery look, wearing a Gucci Spring 2013 blue striped peak-lapel blazer and white dress shirt, breaking up the runway look with dark denim jeans. A blue tie, navy pocket square and blue sneakers added touches to this look which are quintessentially RDJ.

Premiere: Joining Rebecca Hall on the red carpet, Robert’s second Gucci look was a black peak-lapel double-breasted Signoria tuxedo styled with a white dress shirt and charcoal patterned tie. Opting once again to select informal footwear, he donned Gucci high-top sneakers with a GG detail on the side.

Both looks are equally sharp, but the premiere look wins me over on this occasion.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Olga Kurylenko In Burberry, Solange Knowles In Michael Kors, Alexander Skarsgard & Robert Downey Jr In Calvin Klein

Best Dressed 1

Olga Kurylenko is having an amazing run during her promo tour for ‘Oblivion’, and that was reflected by her second BDOTW win in a row, this time for her Burberry Pre-Fall 2013 satin gown with embroidered details.

I would’ve given my vote to Karolina Kurkova, but finding out that what I thought was a Versace gown was actually a blatant copy dulled my love for the look.
So my vote went to Solange Knowles in Michael Kors.

Her cloudy sky-blue pants, white shirt and black blazer Spring 2013 combo was effortlessly chic whilst still maintaining a cool hip factor with a hot-pink lip colour to die for.

Best Dressed 2

As for the men, you selected Alexander Skarsgard in Calvin Klein, while I also opted for a Calvin Klein clad actor, but my choice was Robert Downey Jr.

I just love the colours and his overall styling.

Robert Downey Jr In German Lederhosen – ‘Iron Man 3′ Munich Photocall

Robert Downey Jr In German Lederhosen - 'Iron Man 3' Munich Photocall

Robert Downey Jr. is no stranger to stepping outside the box when it comes to fashion, but he outdid himself at the Munich photocall for ‘Iron Man 3’ in Germany this afternoon at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof.

He showed up wearing traditional German lederhosen, complete with a neckerchief, embroidered cropped pants, green socks and Gucci Trek brown leather boots,

I’m sure he gave the journalists a good laugh wearing their nation-appropriate garb.

As the saying goes, when in Munich, do as the Münchners do.

He certainly has the charisma to pull it off.

Robert Downey Jr. In Vivienne Westwood Man – ‘Iron Man 3′ Seoul Premiere

Robert Downey Jr In Vivienne Westwood Man - 'Iron Man 3' Seoul Premiere

Providing us with yet another fresh take on menswear, Robert Downey Jr. took to the red carpet this evening for the ‘Iron Man 3′ Seoul premiere, held at Times Square in South Korea.

While the colours were traditional, this Vivienne Westwood Fall 2013 tuxedo was anything but.

He wore a black-and-white shawl collar tuxedo jacket which complemented his part-wool, part-satin pants.

Adding another quirk to his look, the actor wore his suit with a white shirt featuring black tips on the collar.

Of course his look wouldn’t be complete without sneakers and even those were toned down, by his standards, on this occasion.

Do you like RDJ’s contemporary interpretation of the classic tux? Should he have worn a black shirt as presented on the runway?

‘Iron Man 3′ which will be released on April 25 in South Korea.
