2014 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards Menswear Roundup

2014 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards Menswear Roundup

David Beckham wasn’t the only handsome gent on the red carpet for the 60th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards held at the London Palladium on Sunday (November 30) in London, England.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The actor looked very smart and handsome on the red carpet, decked in a peek lapel suit before his presenting duties at the event. Once again my eyes headed straight to his lovely fiancée, director Sophie Hunter, who again wore an Erdem gown, this time selecting a Pre-Fall 2014 Bayleigh jacquard gown rendered with bubblegum, burgundy and merlot roses.

Tom Hiddleston: Prepare to swoon once again, this time for the winner of the Best Actor award, Tom Hiddleston, who looked very dapper in his black Alexander McQueen shawl collar tuxedo styled with a tonal skull bow tie and skull cufflinks. He was giving Becks a run for his money when it comes to best dressed male at this event.

Carey Mulligan In Alexander McQueen – 2014 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Carey Mulligan In Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 - 2014 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Carey Mulligan presented the Best Design Award during at the 60th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards held at the London Palladium on Sunday (November 30) in London, England.

The British actress wore an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 black satin ruffled dress with black Alexander McQueen ‘Armadillo’ sandals.

I don’t know about you but my first reaction to this was “what a waste”.

Such a stunning dress deserved a red carpet moment and frankly better styling.

It’s rare that McQueen can look so blah, but Carey managed to make the impossible, possible.

Amal Alamuddin Clooney In Alexander McQueen – London Heathrow Airport

Amal Alamuddin Clooney In Alexander McQueen – London Heathrow Airport

George Clooney and his wife Amal were spotted making their way through London Heathrow Airport on Thursday (November 27).

Earlier this week there was much debate about her £4,000 Dolce & Gabbana airport look.

Here she opted for a more casual, some would say more appropriate airport look. Yet it still consisted of pieces which would amount to the same hefty price tag as her previous look.

Amal wore a beige Alexander McQueen python jacket which would cost north of £3,000, a simple white tee, ripped jeans, Ash leather buckle wedge sneakers, Prada sunglasses and a Balenciaga Giant bag which is another £1,000.

I know price wasn’t the main issue with her Dolce look; however, this look proves to those who tagged her as an overdresser that perhaps, as some suggested, she was leaving/on her way to a meeting wearing that Dolce dress.

Or, she just wanted to wear the dress. Why the hell not?

Kim Kardashian In Balmain, Alexander McQueen & Torn by Ronny Kobo – ‘Fleur Fatale’ Dubai Fragrance Launch

Kim Kardashian In Balmain, Alexander McQueen & Torn by Ronny Kobo - 'Fleur Fatale' Dubai Fragrance Launch

Kim Kardashian is currently in Dubai where she is promoting her latest fragrance ‘Fleur Fatale’.

She kicked off her Monday night (November 24) with a launch event at Parfum Monde, before celebrating with an after party.

Launch Event: The reality star showed off her famous curves in a black Balmain knotted crop top with high-waisted Alexander McQueen smart trousers. Had she not been wearing a crop top, I would’ve been convinced she was wearing a corset of some kind, as she has a minuscule waist. The look was again complete with slicked-back tresses finished off with a bright red lip.

Party: Her second curve-enhancing look of the evening was a white Torn by Ronny Kobo halter dress rendered with a sleek allure with its sleek silhouette. Keeping the same hairstyle, the look was accessorized with her favourite Givenchy sandals.

Naomie Harris In Alexander McQueen – La Maison Remy Martin Members Club Launch Party

Naomie Harris In Alexander McQueen - La Maison Remy Martin Members Club Launch Party

I was delighted to see Naomie Harris back on the red carpet again for the launch of La Maison Rémy Martin members club on Monday (November 24) in London, England.

The British actress was looking very sharp wearing an Alexander McQueen classic tuxedo jacket updated with a contoured, feminine shape.

Working the look sans blouse for a more sultry vibe to this mannish offering, I’m not usually a fan of ankle-swinging trousers, but the red colour block gives this piece a new dimension and totally helps win me over.

Styled with Bionda Castana ‘Alexandra’ pointy pumps and Bee Goddess jewels, the look was pulled effortlessly together with a red, black and white McQueen clutch.

One for the BDOTW list, methinks.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Solange Knowles In Humberto Leon for Kenzo, Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen and Channing Tatum In Gucci

Best Dressed Of The Week - Solange Knowles In Humberto Leon for Kenzo, Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen and Channing Tatum In Gucci

It was damn near impossible not to be entranced by Solange Knowles’ wedding gown created by Humberto Leon for Kenzo.

We never expected her to wear some big poofy gown. This gown couldn’t have been better suited to her style and personality.

When it came to the fellas, there was a battle between Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen and Channing Tatum in Gucci.

With just 1% splitting them, Eddie was the victor for you, but I was all about the slick navy three-piece suit offering of Channing.
