Cannes Film Festival Menswear Round Up

Sunday at the Cannes Film Festival in France included the premiere of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’, which features Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Garrett Hedlund, and the premiere of ‘Blood Ties’, starring Clive Owen and Marion Cotillard.

Garrett Hedlund: Not going with the traditional black tuxedo, Garrett opted for a Saint Laurent midnight-navy tux with black peak lapels. Keeping the color scheme dark, he paired it with a black shirt and a black tie. Garrett looks great, but unfortunately he is standing next to a major menswear mogul in Justin Timberlake.

Justin Timberlake: In the past few months we’ve seen Justin wear tuxedos with perfection. He kept the streak alive, pulling out all of the stops in a beautifully tailored Balenciaga black tuxedo with peak lapels. He kept the look classic as always, with a crisp white shirt, and a black bow tie and cummerbund. To finish it off, he added a Cartier watch, a Lanvin lapel pin, and vintage mother-of-pearl cufflinks.

Oscar Isaac: The star of the film went with a classic black tux, but a few key differences made it stand on its own next to Justin’s similar look. Oscar decided to wear a necktie instead of a bow tie and nixed the cummerbund. Simplicity always works with a tux, so Oscar did well.

Clive Owen: Also sticking with the classics, Clive sported an elegant look in a black tuxedo alongside co-star Marion Cotillard. He finished off the two-button peak-lapel tux with a black bow tie and a white shirt.

It’s a little difficult to choose a favourite out of these four. For me, it was between Garrett and Justin because of the midnight-navy colour and the overall perfection, respectively. I’ll have to give the nod to Justin because of the hair. Grooming counts too.

Carey Mulligan In Balenciaga - 'The Great Gatsby' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Carey Mulligan kicked off Cannes Film Festival this afternoon by attending a photocall for ‘The Great Gatsby’ at Palais des Festivals in France.

The British actress wore her second Balenciaga by Alexander Wang Fall 2013 look in a row following the Met Gala.

On this occasion she wore a very chic black jumpsuit featuring a circular beaded bodice with a bow accent, which she styled with Saint Laurent t-bar pumps.

Yes, she’s sticking to this minimalist approach to red carpet dressing for now, but maybe she’ll pull out all the stops for the premiere, which opens the festival officially this evening.

Makeup-wise, I see a touch more lip colour and kohl-rimmed eyes, which is more makeup than she’s worn in a while.

A simple chignon completed her look.

What are your expectations for Carey this evening?

Do you think the likes of Fan Bingbing outshine her at the premiere?

Julianna Moore In Balenciaga - 2013 Met Gala

Never one to blend in, Julianne Moore stood out in a forest green frock in a sea of black and pink at Monday’s Met Gala in New York.

Draped in Balenciaga, Julianne’s dress was simplistic and artistic with origami fold details along the bust and waist.

Paired with monochromatic earrings by Irene Neuwirth and heels, the actress looked fashion forward in the rich colour.

One of my favourite parts to the entire look? Julianne’s fun and totally on-theme hair. Her red strands teased into a faux hawk with slicked back sides was as chic as it was punk.

A major red carpet thumbs up for Julianne.

Carey Mulligan joined a host of other bold names, as she stunned on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

‘The Great Gatsby’ actress interpreted the evening’s punk theme with an impressively smart flourish in her black Balenciaga dress that riffed on the style era’s obsession with safety pins.

The angular, cutout design was neither look-at-me or louche. But the oversized gold pin at the neck still spoke volumes.

Was it an homage to the uber-famous Versace safety-pin dress donned by Elizabeth Hurley in the ’90s? Perhaps.

Regardless, I have to say I love this tongue-in-cheek variation that’s simultaneously classic and cool-girl, amidst a sea of overwrought edge at tonight’s ball.

Carey slicked back her deeply side-parted blonde locks and wore a nude lip to complete this refined look.

Call it sophisticated, new-age punk.

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.

Cory Michael Smith In Balenciaga - ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ Broadway Opening Night

Cory Michael Smith joined Emilia Clarke on the red carpet yesterday evening for the after-party to celebrate the ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ Broadway opening night, held at The Edison Ballroom in New York City.

Oozing charm and good looks, it’s hard not to find yourself swooning over the actor in his Balenciaga suit.

We have questioned the fit and length of pants on many more-established Hollywood actors, but Cory’s suit fits to perfection. The only other actor that gets it this right is Eddie Redmayne.

His Spring 2013 two-button suit was styled with a white dress shirt and slim tie.

With that perfectly coiffed quiff and chiselled good looks, Eddie might just have someone who can contend for his best-dressed-male status.
