2014 CFDA Fashion Awards Models Roundup

CFDA 1

Amid the crush of starlets and designers at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 2), the models definitely had their moment, too. They strutted out a range of dazzling, directional and sometimes daring looks at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

Joan Smalls: Putting her statuesque height to good use, Joan worked her midnight-navy Prabal Gurung draped, cutout gown to sexy effect also flaunting an Angelina leg through the thigh-high slit. She styled the look with metallic ankle-tie sandals and a mod fringe bang, but the gold choker necklace was unnecessary here.

Alessandra Ambrosio
: The Victoria’s Secret cat-walker took a red-hot approach in a Nonoo strapless gown featuring a structured bodice with a crossover ribbon tie at the back. She accessorized with Jennifer Fisher jewels, including a sharp, diamond-pointed pair of earrings.

2014 Met Gala Menswear Roundup

Met Gala Men 1The dress code at the 2014 Met Ball, themed ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ was “white tie,” which meant the guys were on their best glam behavior—at least most of them. Tuxes were spotted at every turn among the handsome hunks on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5). It takes a lot of sartorial strength to stand up to the rush of bustling, bold gowns that punctuate the evening, but let’s hear it for the men who made it work.

David Beckham: This hot topic was hotter than ever in a crisp, cool Ralph Lauren Black Label white shawl collar tuxedo jacket, black bow tie and black tuxedo pant. This is the way to rock formal wear, without a hit of fussiness. Swooning yet?

Douglas Booth
: The British actor took a regally traditional route, but put a refreshingly modern spin on his head-to-toe Burberry outing. He was positively dashing in a black tailcoat and dress trousers, worn with a white waistcoat, wing collar bib-front shirt, white bow tie and black loafers.

Andrew Garfield
: “The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ star looked sharp in silver, dressed in a Band of Outsiders metallic blazer with contrasting black shawl collar, paired with a white shirt, black bow tie and black tuxedo trousers. I love the touch of metal here.

Menwear Red Carpet Roundup

Menwear Red Carpet Roundup

After a flurry of male stars taking to the red carpet in shades of blue, here we see that grey is the colour du jour.

Kit Harrington: The actor attended a VIP screening of ‘Pompeii’ held at Vue West End on Monday (April 28) in London wearing a smart two-button notched-lapel suit with a shirt and tie, all by Z Zegna.

Zac Efron: Attending the premiere of his latest movie ‘Neighbors’ in LA on Monday evening, Zac selected a lighter-grey suit of the three-piece variety, styling his suave look with black patent-leather shoes, a slim black tie and a white pocket square.

Dave Franco: The funny guy was also looking very sharp at the ‘Neighbors’ premiere, wearing a Band of Outsiders suit with a white shirt and navy tie, combining traditional Americana with contemporary flair, which is what the Californian brand is famed for.

Amanda Peet In Band of Outsiders – Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014

Amanda Peet In Band of Outsiders - Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014

Gorgeous Amanda Peet was also in attendance of the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars Party on Sunday (March 2).

Missing out on old Hollywood glamour, ‘The Good Wife’ actress went with a more minimal Band of Outsiders Resort 2014 ensemble.

Although I the look is very chic, I have mixed feelings about it for this event. I’m missing the gowns, the embellishments and the high ponytails we know Peet can carry so perfectly.

Amanda punctuated this modern look with bright red lips and showed off her bangs with relaxed straight hair.

How do you feel about it? Too casual or very chic cool?

Emma Stone In Band of Outsiders - 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Photocall

Emma Stone attended a photocall for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ held at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver Studios on Saturday.

The actress went for a dark-grey menswear-inspired suit by Band of Outsiders which consisted of gathered-cuff pants, a matching blazer and a light-blue button-down shirt.

Adding a distinctly feminine touch to her look, she wore bright-red Kurt Geiger London ‘Britton’ pointed-toe pumps with Oliver Peoples ‘Alivia’ shades, a house-shaped pendant necklace and a Dana Rebecca Designs yellow-gold ring.

Wavy blonde tresses completed the look.

I’m glad this promo tour is starting just as ‘The Hunger Games’ is coming to an end. Let’s hope Emma can keep the good times rollin’.

Lucy Liu In Band of Outsiders – Late Night with Letterman

Lucy Liu In Band of Outsiders - Late Night with Letterman

Lucy Liu was spotted outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York City yesterday afternoon ahead of her guest appearance on ‘Late Night with Letterman’ to promote her hit TV show ‘Elementary’.

The actress, whose style I adore, wore a Band of Outsiders Fall 2013 long-sleeved dress featuring a striped, panelled bodice that was inspired by retro video-game graphics, which breathes fresh life into this ’40s-inspired dress silhouette, with puffed shoulders maintaining the nostalgic look.

Her favourite black Saint Laurent sandals and silver dangling earrings completed her evening-show look. You can’t help but love Lucy.
