Menswear Red Carpet Roundup


Keeping the red carpet hot, a few men were out and about on the promo circuit this past week.

Jamie Foxx: The actor was at the ‘Baby Driver’ London premiere on Wednesday (June 21), joining Eiza Gonzalez and Lily James at the event. There would be no denying his suave navy suit, worn in his effortlessly cool manner, as he carried the ironically named Privé Revaux ‘The Underdog’ shades—he is no underdog here.

Chadwick Boseman: For the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ show on Wednesday (June 21), Chadwick suited up in a Burberry Tailoring ensemble while Jimmy tried to get him to spill details on the ‘Avengers’ movie. The chambray-inspired look could have used a similar summer freshness in the tie, but all in all, he looked sharp.

Ansel Elgort: Also at the ‘Baby Driver’ London premiere, Ansel gave Jamie a run for his money in an impeccable Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2017 suit that featured the subtle, sophisticated touch of tonal piping at the lapels. Oxford lace-up shoes completed the sleekly urbane look.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Royal Ascot 2017

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was the epitome of gracious charm at the Royal Ascot 2017 on Tuesday (June 20).

We all know how masterfully the house of Alexander McQueen can use lace, and that was proven true again here in this floral lace frock that fit Catherine like a dream.

In addition to the fresh enchantment of the dress that was likely customized to align with the Ascot dress code, Catherine’s styling on this occasion only served to enhance the effect.

From the pink Loeffler Randall clutch, to the nude Gianvito Rossi suede heels, to the sophisticated whimsy of the complementary fascinator, all the pieces worked in concert to elevate the classic allure of the look.

You even have to smile at her name tag that spells out: HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Trooping The Colour 2017

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was positively beaming at the Trooping The Colour 2017 parade on Saturday (June 17) in London alongside Prince William, Duke of Cambridge with the adorable Princess Charlotte and Prince George close at hand.

Her colour mantra for the day clearly took cues from pretty in pink, as she relied on favoured design house of Alexander McQueen for this sweet, gathered and pleated dress.

Together, with a matching Jane Taylor fascinator, this was right in the proper, sophisticated vein of Catherine’s style.

It was her radiant smile that sold the look, as one cannot deny the charm factor here.

Charlize Theron In Alexander McQueen – Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Charlize Theron was seen on the streets of Hollywood, California last Thursday (June 8) heading a studio for her guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The stunning actress chose a sheer black Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2017 dress for the occasion, adding grunge undertones with a studded oversized belt.

Accessorising with a pair of subtle Stuart Weitzman ‘Applique’ suede sandals and sunglasses, this look fell in line with her signature sophisticated looks, with the frill detail and bustier style of the gown nodding to the nightwear as daywear trend.

Bee Shaffer In Alexander McQueen & Anna Wintour In Maison Margiela – 2017 Tony Awards

The 2017 Tony Awards took place on Sunday (June 11) in New York City, and everybody’s favourite mother and daughter duo were in attendance. Bee Shaffer and Anna Wintour both stunned in their respective gowns.

Bee Shaffer: Taken from the Fall 2017 Alexander McQueen Collection Bee’s dress is a riot of colour and texture. The hanging ribbons resemble tassels and give the look a grounded, effortless feel. The patchwork design feels traditional and highlights the incredible workmanship that went into the gown. I love Bee’s Irene Neuwirth jewels which mirror the cascading tassels and ribbons. The red lip and updo is the polished element this look needs to finish it perfectly.

Anna Wintour: There are some who may feel this look is a bit dated, but I love it. Classic and elegant, fashion’s matriarch wears an Anna’s Maison Margiela Spring 2017 Couture gown. Whilst the runway styling is more exciting and shows this dress to its full potential, next to Bee in her busy dress Anna looks perfectly poised. Some gold jewellery and the addition of the original runway waist-tie could have helped to finish this look.
