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.

Models @ The 2014 Met Gala

Models @ The Met 1

It’s the time you’ve all been waiting for, Model @ The Met, where we take a look at all the leggy beauties who took to the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala in New York City on Monday (May 5).

Liu Wen: There is only one thing 100% guaranteed on Met Gala night: a Zac Posen gown will shut down the red carpet. Liu Wen worked this green strapless ballgown to perfection. Styled with David Yurman jewels and a black clutch, the next few words won’t come as a surprise: best-dressed nominee.

Georgia May Jagger: The British model wore a custom Mugler black and white lined slinky gown with a plunging neckline and satin trim styled with Sergio Rossi asymmetrical
‘Dali’ pumps. This gown is a first for the fashion house’s new creative director David Koma.

Suki Waterhouse In Burberry – 2014 Met Gala

Suki Waterhouse In Burberry - 2014 Met Gala

Suki Waterhouse strikes a fierce pose on the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala in New York City on Monday (May 5).

Dressed in a frothy pink Burberry strapless, tiered creation, the romance is somewhat lost on me with that deep, harsh red lip.

My eye went straight to the lip despite all that lovely detail north of her shoulders.

Who Wore Burberry Better…Suki Waterhouse or Cara Delevingne?

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better Suki Waterhouse or Cara Delevinge

Here we have two faces of Burberry rocking the same Burberry Prorsum suit.

Suki Waterhouse was the first two wear this maroon single button suit with black trims to the brand’s Fall 2014 menswear show back in January, keeping warm with a cream coat slung over her shoulders.

Cara Delevingne wore the same look a few weeks later, sans coat, to Harvey Weinstein’s pre-BAFTA dinner.

While it might appear that there is not much in it, I picked Suki because of the fit of her trousers. Cara opted for larger sized trousers, giving her not only a looser fit but also bunching at the ankles.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Emma Watson In Ralph Lauren Collection, Jennifer Connelly In Alexander McQueen & Douglas Boot In Burberry Tailoring

BDOTW 7 April

Emma Watson narrowly won the poll by 1% to be crowned best dressed of the week over Shailene Woodley in Zuhair Murad.

I was so totally enamoured by Jennifer Connelly in Alexander McQueen that she took the top spot for me for daring to be different and taking a risk which paid off.

On the men’s side the winner was more clear cut, with triumph for Douglas Booth in his Burberry Tailoring three-piece suit, which means it was yet another victory for the cast of ‘Noah’ this week, who were impeccably dressed throughout this promo tour.
