Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Roundup

Here’s a quick look at the fellas taking to the red carpet last night.

Tinie Tempah: The rapper and FROW regular attended the PRISM x Disturbing London Collection launch in London yesterday evening. Looking as sharp as always, Tinie wore a Burberry Tailoring mauve blazer, white shirt and sleek maroon tie, keeping his trousers stylishly (in his eyes at the very least) short, as always. Black loafers and his BFC (British Fashion Council) pin rounded out his look. It may be a familiar format, but the colourways and fits do differ keeping this look fresh and interesting.

Robert Pattinson: The British actor made a guest appearance on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’. It appears that the male Dior ambassadors, aren’t held to the same expectations as the women, as Rob wore a Gucci burgundy notch lapel two button Signoria suit paired with an unbuttoned printed Louis Vuitton shirt for a more laid-back feel.

Stephen Moyer: While many guys are delighting with their colourful choices on the red carpet of late, the British actor stuck to black, selecting an Ermenegildo Zegna Couture two-button notched-lapel suit. A wise choice for the ‘True Blood’ premiere, which he attended with his wife Anna Paquin. He styled his look with a Jennifer Meyer earring and Christian Louboutin ‘Trepeter’ flats.

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 Menswear Front Row

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 Mens Front Row

The Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 menswear show took place during London Collections: Men at their usual home of Kensington Gardens this afternoon (June 17) in London, England. Usually there is an even mix of guys and gals, but this time the fellas dominated the front row.

Tinie Tempah: Perhaps needing a touch more grooming in the hair department, the rapper still looked dapper in his Burberry ivory suit with his standard Burberry cropped trousers, which he paired with a simple white tee. If his light-coloured suit didn’t signal summer, his Jimmy Choo ‘Hayman’ sandals definitely did.

Jourdan Dunn: As the Burberry model wasn’t walking today, she took a pew in the front row, working a casual biker-chic look that included the Burberry Prorsum leather biker jacket much loved by the likes of Keira Knightley and Ashley Madekwe.

David Gandy: Giving us two great looks in the space of two days, the handsome model also opted for a light-coloured blazer and white tee combo, adding a pair of navy slacks held up with a pair of braces.

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.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Womenswear Show

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Womenswear Show

The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 fashion show took place during London Fashion Week this afternoon (February 17).

As we’ve come to expect, the hottest ticket in town attracted a lot of celebrity faces, some of whom also attended the menswear show last month. Bradley Cooper didn’t take to the red carpet, but you can see him seated next to Anna Wintour below.

Paloma Faith: After working a summery BDOTY-worthy look for the menswear show, Paloma was in a more Fall-like mood. Wearing pieces from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection including a London landscape printed tee and green jacquard pencil skirt, she wore the same maroon hat she wore for her last red carpet appearance, but it worked much better on this occasion when styled with a matching coat.

Naomie Harris: While the coat-and-open-toe-sandals fashion police may not favour this look, I have to say I’m loving the chic combo of the velvet devore coat with the chartreuse velvet sandal. Did I say love? Yes, LOVE.

2014 BAFTAs Menswear Roundup

BAFTA men

Ruth Wilson and Angelina Jolie weren’t the only ones suiting up for the 2014 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 16) held at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

Eddie Redmayne: Our Best Dressed Man of 2013 was one of the presenters on the night. He didn’t let us down looking very dapper wearing a Gucci black one button peak lapel Marseille tuxedo with a white evening shirt, black silk bow tie and black patent leather lace ups. His beautiful plus one, Hannah Bagshawe, was also decked out in Gucci Pre-Fall 2013.

Brad Pitt: The actor wore a Valentino tuxedo styled with a black bow-tie. Frankly, I prefer Angelina’s look over his. I don’t get the collarless shirt.

Tinie Tempah In Louis Vuitton – Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Menswear Show

Tinie Tempah In Louis Vuitton - Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Menswear Show

Tinie Tempah continued to take his role as British Fashion Council’s style ambassador very seriously with a trip to Paris to attend the Louis Vuitton Menswear Fall 2014 show as part of Paris Fashion Week on Thursday (January 16) in Paris, France.

The rapper, who we’ve seen don a floral-print blazer before, wore a snazzy blazer from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 collection.

While this may not be to everyone’s taste – especially once you factor in the grey tank top, cropped navy trousers and Tinie’s can’t-live-without tassel-accented Jimmy Choo loafers – you have to give the man a standing ‘O’ for keeping menswear on the red carpet/front row interesting.

Personally, I love it from head-to-toe.

Tinie Tempah FW

As one of the British Fashion Council’s style ambassadors, rapper Tinie Tempah has been front row at nearly every fashion show during Men’s London Collections this week.

Astrid Andersen’s Fall 2014 Show: With this Jonathan Saunders ombre suit, the rapper gave up his preferred loafers for a more contemporary spin, adding crisp white sneakers on this occasion.

Richard James Fall 2014 Show: Looking like his parents are about to send him off to his first day at school, Tinie worked a preppy look, wearing a grey suit with a maroon dotted tie with brown shoes.

Rake Fall 2014 Show: Blue was the colour on this occasion, with Tinie opting for a patterned double-breasted suit and tie with rolled-up jeans and his favourite black loafers.
