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.

Here is a quick look at some of the menswear looks from yesterday.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: The actor looked very dapper attending the ‘Don Jon’ Paris premiere held at UGC Cine Cite Bercy in Paris, France yesterday evening wearing various shades of grey in this Dolce & Gabbana sleek suit. The look consisted of a micro-windowpane suit, striped shirt and printed tie. I love that he always fashionably supports his open-collaborative production company hitRECord with that red lapel pin.

Tom Hiddleston: The British actor attended the ‘Thor: The Dark World’ premiere held at Times Square in Seoul, South Korea opting for a classic Men-In-Black suit with a thin tie.

Matt Goss: The Bros lead man is back in the UK following years of success performing in Las Vegas. In my teens I was very much a Brosette so I am delighted to see him back in the UK, where he was signing copies of his latest album, ‘Life You Imagine’, at HMV in Oxford Street, London yesterday evening. He looked so very sharp wearing an ink-blue suit with a white button-down shirt, red-and-white striped socks and his signature hat tilted to the side.

Chiwetel Ejiofor: It was also all black for Chiwetel at the ’12 Years A Slave’ LA premiere, as the British actor donned a sleek three-piece suit.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Menswear Roundup

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Menswear Roundup

Benedict Cumberbatch: Benedict attended ‘The Fifth Estate’ premiere during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada yesterday evening joining co-stars Alicia Vikander and Carice van Houten. The handsome actor, who can play a baddie like no other, looked very debonair in his classic Dolce & Gabbana peaked-lapel tuxedo with a white shirt accented with black pin buttons and a smart bow tie. Does this make you swoon?

Tom Hiddleston: Joining co-star Mia Wasikowska, Tom attended the ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ premiere wearing a slick black double-breasted Giorgio Armani suit with a velvet shawl collar and satin black tie.

Dan Stevens: Fresh from his ‘Most Stylist’ GQ Man of the Year Award, Dan opted for something different going blue and tieless while attending the premiere of ‘The Fifth Estate’, wearing a blue wool two-button notch lapel suit, black cotton dress shirt and black lace-up leather shoes from the Fall 2013 Calvin Klein Collection.

Daniel Brühl: The actor added a maroon patterned tie to his charcoal grey notched lapel Emporio Armani suit to liven things up while also attending the premiere of ‘The Fifth Estate’.

Even though I love it when guys wear suits in colours other than black or grey. I can’t decide who I love more between Benedict and Tom in their classic tuxedos.

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.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Nicole Kidman In Valentino Couture and Jesscia Chastain In Givenchy Couture

BDOTW Nicole & Jessica

Nicole Kidman was your clear winner for Best Dressed this week, wearing a Valentino Couture gown during Cannes Film Festival.

It was just one of many gowns worn by the Australian actress which swept us off our feet during the 12-day festival.

My pick was Jessica Chastain in Givenchy Couture. It was such an unexpected, bold choice for the usually reserved star. On a post of mostly neutral-coloured gowns, she really stood out.

BDOTW Men Tom & Jeremy

When it comes to men, our choices also greatly differed. You opted for the charming Tom Hiddleston in Alexander McQueen, while I selected Jeremy Renner in Lanvin.

While there isn’t much between them, for me the satin lapels and white pocket square added that much more refinement to Jeremy’s look to help me with my choice.

Tom Hiddleston In Alexander McQueen – ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Tom Hiddleston In Alexander McQueen - 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Premiere

Tom Hiddleston joined Tilda Swinton at the Palais des Festival in France yesterday afternoon for the Cannes Film Festival photocall for their new movie, ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ where he wore a cool-blue three-piece suit styled with a white pocket square, white open shirt and brown shoes.

By night he changed into yet another slick suit for the premiere, opting for an Alexander McQueen single breasted suit styled with a white shirt, black tonal skull bow tie and patent leather shoes.

Both looks were appropriate for the occasion. The cool-blue suit worked wonderfully with the French Riviera in the back drop and the McQueen suit befitted the formal occasion and fit to perfection.

We have seen so many great suits this week, it will be hard to pick a favourite.

Jameson Empire Awards 2013 Menswear Red Carpet Round Up

Empire Awards Mens 1

The 2013 Jameson Empire Awards were held at Grosvenor House on Sunday in London. Many of the men teetered on the line between formal and casual in classic black and grey suits, while a select few chose to be a bit flashier with checked suits.

Jonathan Ross: The TV presenter known for his sharp suits kept things fairly casual on this occasion. He wore black jeans and a black shirt with a grey Thom Browne whale-patterned blazer.

Daniel Radcliffe: The young British actor didn’t just win the Empire Hero Award, but he did it looking incredibly smooth. Daniel showed at the Independent Spirit Awards that he knows exactly how his suit should fit, and this was another perfect example. He wore a Spencer Hart black suit with skinny lapels over a white shirt. My favourite part of it, besides the impeccable fit, was that he made it more casual by adding a black knit tie, as opposed to a more formal silk one.

Tom Hiddleston: Changing it up with patterns, Tom opted for an Emporio Armani blue check ‘David’ line suit and a pale-blue shirt. The blue colours of the suit, shirt and tie made for a great look on Tom, but I wish his pants were just a bit shorter.

Sam Claflin: For a head-turning look, Sam wore an Alexander McQueen charcoal-grey checked suit from the Spring 2013 collection. Everything fit well and the suit had a good pattern. He also accessorized with a white pocket square, a red tie, and a tie bar. My favourite part of his outfit, though, was those black leather double-monk-strap shoes.
