Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear

From Scotland to England, the guys suited up in style for a round of red carpets this past weekend.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper was appropriately dressed in a trendy-dapper Dolce & Gabbana black tux and a perfect bow tie, as he pointed out his Best Hip Hop/Grime MOBO Award at the 18th anniversary MOBO Awards at the Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday. The loafers, worn sans socks, added another shot of attitude.

Tom Hiddleston: At Friday’s ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ London premiere during the 57th BFI London Film Festival at Odeon West End, the British actor walked the line between bold and basic in an Alexander McQueen black velvet shawl collar dinner jacket, paired with a white evening shirt, skinny black tie, black trousers and black patent shoes.

Colin Farrell: The actor joined Ruth Wilson at the ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ closing night gala premiere, held during the 57th BFI London Film Festival at Odeon Leicester Square last night. He tempered his edgy persona with a more clean-cut look featuring a dark, three-piece Dolce & Gabbana pinstripe number.

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 Menswear Front Row

Burberry Prorsum Menswear

After a decade in Milan, British designer Christopher Bailey moved the Burberry Prorsum Menswear show back to home turf, as he sent a set of best-dressed boys down the Spring 2014 runway today at Kensington Gardens in London, England. An eclectic group was seated front row, with many rocking their own interpretations of the brand.

Douglas Booth: The young English actor turned on his boyish charm with this casual Burberry ensemble, as he rolled up the sleeves of his denim-blue blazer. The floral-print, cerulean-blue shirt echoed some of the brighter hues seen on the runway, but his dark, baggy pants and unpolished black lace-up shoes brought down the look a bit.

Serena Williams: The tennis ace simultaneously flaunted and covered her curves in top-to-toe Burberry, donning a Burberry London fuchsia body-con minidress mixed with a classic stone-coloured trench. She styled the look with animal-print, calfskin T-bar sandals and a tote bag, covered in black hearts. A pulled-back ‘do, rather than her super-long locks, may have delivered a more polished effect.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper also got in touch with his animal instincts with a Burberry giraffe-print, black-and-white shirt worn with the brand’s black cropped leg pants and shiny patent shoes. The bold black frames of his glasses added another dose of cool factor to his standout entrance.

Jimmy Choo & Esquire Party Menswear Round Up

Jimmy Choo Esquire Party Menswear Round Up

There were plenty of dudes attending the Jimmy Choo and Esquire party which was held during the start of Menswear Spring 2014 fashion week.

Dan Stevens: The former ‘Downton Abbey’ actor wore a slick all-black Spencer Hart look with a pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Abbot’ black sneakers with a white sole. We’ve only seen the British actor sport classic suits so far, so it’s refreshing to see him wearing something a bit more contemporary.

Tinie Tempah: Always one to step outside the classic suit-and-tie menswear look, the rapper wore a layered top and black cropped pants – a look he often favours – with Jimmy Choo ‘Foxley’ loafers. His glazed leather whole-cut venetian loafers with tonal oversized tassel detail added a dapper flair to his casual look, where sneakers would’ve been the most obvious choice.

Mark Ronson: The DJ selected a Prince of Wales check charcoal-grey suit styled with a printed shirt. Also selecting an unpredictable shoe, Mark wore tobacco-hued Jimmy Choo ‘Radnor’ slippers. They are a sleek yet fun take on the classic loafer, finished in textured suede and shiny calf leather.

Wretch 32: We don’t associate velvet with summer, but since summer is yet to arrive in London, I would say the rapper’s look was season appropriate. This copper blazer teamed with a white shirt and navy trousers was styled with a pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Belgravia’ matt croc-embossed leather high-top sneakers in black cherry. Will Smith wore these same sneakers last month in black.

Tinie Tempah and Idris Elba – Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards

Tinie Tempah and Idris Elba - Prince's Trust Celebrate Success Awards

Tinie Tempah and Idris Elba attended the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards held at Odeon Leicester Square in London yesterday evening sporting ‘you da man’, ‘no, you da man’ poses on the red carpet.

Tinie Tempah: Tinie by name and by pant length. The rapper, who’s always front row during fashion week, opted to wear a charcoal-grey Dolce & Gabbana blazer with black ankle-swing pants. Cropped pants are very much part of his signature look, as are his black loafers. A crisp white shirt, a quirky polka-dotted bow tie and a red Prince’s Trust pin completed his look.

Idris Elba: The actor opted for a more classic look, donning a dark-grey Armani suit with a white dress shirt. The tie stops a bit short but I can’t fault how handsome he looks in his suit, which he paired with dark-green shoes and a red pin.

Tinie Tempah In Burberry Prorsum – Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013

Tinie Tempah In Burberry Prorsum - Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013

Tinie Tempah joined a host of beautiful ladies in the front row at the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 show held at Kensington Gardens in London on Monday.

The British rapper, who we’ve noted wearing Burberry several times before, wore a Burberry shirt from the Spring 2013 collection along with a pair of blue jeans.

A khaki-coloured overcoat, white high-top sneakers, and his signature black-framed glasses completed his look.

Patterned shirts are a hot trend at the moment; you may remember that Harry Styles wore one recently.

What I love most about Tinie’s look is his coat, which is incredible, plus the kicks gave his outfit a perfect contrast of fresh colour.

Tinie Tempah In Burberry – London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Tinie Tempah looked very dapper on the red carpet at the Savoy Hotel in London, where he attended the 58th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards on Sunday evening.

He wore a white dress shirt and black bow tie with his Burberry London black suit feauring a two-button tuxedo jacket with black satin lapels and matching pants.

Again I take issue with the cropped pants, and I will also throw in the fact that he opted not to wear socks too – is this a menswear trend I wasn’t aware of?

Soft velvety loafers and his signature black-rimmed glasses completed his look.
