Sienna Miller & Tom Sturridge In Burberry – ‘Orphans’ Broadway Opening Night

Sienna Miller & Tom Sturridge In Burberry - ‘Orphans’ Broadway Opening Night

Last night in New York City, Sienna Miller supported her beau Tom Sturridge at the opening night of the new play ‘Orphans’ on Broadway, in which Tom stars alongside Alec Baldwin and Ben Foster.
It was a double dose of Cool Britannia, as the couple both wore Burberry.

Sienna Miller: The actress wore a classic Burberry trench coat for her red carpet look, which she styled with a Burberry Prorsum ‘The Little Crush’ clutch. The ponyskin-and-leather drawstring clutch featuring hearts and a gold padlock, which was presented during the Fall 2013 collection, adds a cheeky touch to her classic look. Black leather booties, a hot-red lip colour and perfectly teased tresses rounded out her look.

Tom Sturridge: This is the first time I have ever seen Tom in a suit, and a perfectly fitted suit it is too. His dark-grey Burberry Tailoring suit was styled with a white dress shirt and burgundy textured tie. Just to prove he hasn’t gone soft, he styled his look with a pork-pie hat and scuffed shoes.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Olga Kurylenko In Burberry, Solange Knowles In Michael Kors, Alexander Skarsgard & Robert Downey Jr In Calvin Klein

Best Dressed 1

Olga Kurylenko is having an amazing run during her promo tour for ‘Oblivion’, and that was reflected by her second BDOTW win in a row, this time for her Burberry Pre-Fall 2013 satin gown with embroidered details.

I would’ve given my vote to Karolina Kurkova, but finding out that what I thought was a Versace gown was actually a blatant copy dulled my love for the look.
So my vote went to Solange Knowles in Michael Kors.

Her cloudy sky-blue pants, white shirt and black blazer Spring 2013 combo was effortlessly chic whilst still maintaining a cool hip factor with a hot-pink lip colour to die for.

As for the men, you selected Alexander Skarsgard in Calvin Klein, while I also opted for a Calvin Klein clad actor, but my choice was Robert Downey Jr.

I just love the colours and his overall styling.

Olga Kurylenko In Burberry – ‘Oblivion’ LA Premiere

Olga Kurylenko In Burberry - 'Oblivion' LA Premiere

Olga Kurylenko is on an amazing roll at the moment. The Ukrainian actress stunned once again last night at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, where the premiere for ‘Oblivion’ was held.

I haven’t been this excited about a promo tour since Kerry Washington for ‘Django Unchained’. The range of looks are just as exciting and varied.

On this occasion, Olga delights wearing a sleek Burberry gown, which features a beaded bodice and a luxe satin caramel-coloured skirt with a overlapping side slit.

The gown didn’t need any adornments; however, the look is elevated with an embellished Valentino clutch and Martin Katz jewels.

A chic updo, accented with a single braid, and Tom Ford pumps with a gold-tipped heel completed her look.

The only thing I would change about the look are the pumps, which I would swap for sandals. Thankfully, the skirt keeps her footwear under wraps.

Adele In Burberry – 2013 Oscars Performance

Adele In Burberry - 2013 Oscars Performance

Adele continued to wave the flag for British fashion at the 2013 Oscars when she took to the stage at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles yesterday evening, for the performance of her Oscar winning song, ‘Skyfall’.

Having worn Jenny Packham on the red carpet, Adele donned a Burberry frock on this occasion, in her favoured colour black.

I love the shape of her black silk dress with degradé embroidered crystals, as it nipped her in at the waist giving her a beautiful silhouette.

Wearing her second pair of custom Christian Louboutin ‘Bibi’ strass pumps – this time in silver – Adele completed her look with a glorious voluminous bouffant.

One Direction – 2013 Brit Awards

Brit Awards 2013 - Red Carpet Arrivals

The 2013 Brit Awards took place in London last night; it was also a chance for the boy bands to shine.

One Direction scrubbed up nicely, sporting a mix of British designers.

The winners of the ‘Global Success Award’ arrived in different looks with one thing in common – black and white.

While each of them wore a black suit, except Liam Payne in an Alexander McQueen black cardigan with gold dragonfly embroidered on the chest, they each featured different details.

Louis Tomlinson opted for an Alexander McQueen shawl collar tux with brown shoes.

Zayn Malik had the most interesting look, wearing a TOPMAN black tuxedo with a black string bow tie.

Niall Horan kept it simple in an ASOS black suit and silver glitter kicks, while the group’s main man, Harry Styles, looked his part as the leader in a Burberry tailored suit with a white flower on his notch lapel. He also wore a patterned Burberry shirt, which he’s been doing a lot of lately.

Zayn gets our vote for best dressed here, followed by Louis.

2013 Grammy Awards Menswear Round Up

Grammys Mens 1

While the Grammys are always a stage for wild fashion from the women’s side, the men typically tend to stay on the classic side – with a few exceptions, of course. The menswear always has a lot of diversity, ranging from dapper to disgusting. This year featured a lot of monochromatic looks and, unfortunately, a lot of bad tailoring.

Justin Timberlake: He’s back and he’s looking better than ever. Suiting up in collaboration with Tom Ford was clearly a wondrous decision. Justin made his return to the Grammys wearing an impeccably tailored Tom Ford black tuxedo with a hip twist on the jacket. His shawl collar was matched with a white-edged black pocket square and a droopy black bow tie. What made this outfit so perfect, though, was the way he was able to honour the old school while staying so modern. He kept his look classic with the black studs on his shirt, those amazing black-and-white loafers, and white dress socks. And he even wore a black cummerbund. He’s easily my best dressed of the Grammys.

Frank Ocean: Prior to performing at the Grammys wearing a custom yellow Band of Outsiders tuxedo, Frank wore a Dior Homme navy wool broadcloth Teddy jacket with silver buttons, paired with a navy wool and silk round neck sleeveless sweater, and navy wool broadcloth slim pants for the red carpet. Both looks showcased his cool, laid-back style.

Ed Sheeran: The red-haired English singer gave a grand performance on stage, but not so much on the red carpet. Ed wore a poorly tailored Burberry navy tuxedo with a two-toned notch lapel. The problem was that his tux fit terribly: the waist was not tailored; the sleeves and pants were too long; and those shoes did not work. I’m all for sneakers with a suit, and I like those particular sneakers, but the rest of his outfit is so bad that it distracts from his shoes. A little more effort next time, Ed.
