2013 Oscars Menswear Round Up

2013 Oscars Menswear Round Up

While the women looked absolutely gorgeous at the 2013 Oscars, the men used the biggest black tie event of the year to showcase some truly dapper looks. A large majority of the men stuck to the classic black and white, as opposed to navy and grey, and it paid off. With all the cleaned-up looks, it was surprising to see that the most popular trend of the night was facial hair. From full beards to scruff, the men of the Oscars made a manly statement.

Channing Tatum: Before dancing with Charlize Theron in the opening, the popular actor donned a nicely fitted Gucci made-to-order navy three-piece tux with Martin Katz studs and cufflinks. His outfit featured a classy shawl lapel and shirt studs. He rocked his tux all night with a huge smile thanks to his glowingly beautiful pregnant wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

Eddie Redmayne: Here’s the one you’ve all been waiting for. The always-dapper Eddie Redmayne arrived in a slim-fit Alexander McQueen black tuxedo with wide peak lapels. Like he’s shown over the past few months, Eddie knows how a suit should fit, and this tux fit perfectly. Finishing off his look with a tribute to the old school, he wore gold studs and, my favourite part, black tuxedo slippers.

Ben Affleck: That fantastic beard is back. The director and producer of Best Picture winner ‘Argo’ wore a Gucci black three-piece tuxedo that featured peak lapels. With his black bow tie, Ben wore a white shirt with a wing-tip collar. The pants could have been a bit shorter, but what he lacks in tailoring he makes up for in facial hair. Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner, also wore Gucci to the event.

Jennifer Lawrence In Calvin Klein – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Jennifer Lawrence In Calvin Klein - 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Aside from her Oscar win, Jennifer Lawrence’s other silver lining at the 2013 Academy Awards might just have been her dazzling Vanity Fair party gown, which was glimpsed at Sunset Tower in Los Angeles, California.

After experiencing every starlet’s worst nightmare—falling on Hollywood’s biggest night—the ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actress exchanged her voluminous Dior ball gown for a custom Calvin Klein dress that was easier to walk in.

This body-con, glittery gunmetal creation was completely out of character for the unembellished, plain-Jane Jennifer we’ve seen lately. And it was marvelous just for that reason.

In particular, I’m applauding the sculpted bodice and the straps; a genius new direction from that same-old strapless silhouette.

It doesn’t hurt that this liquid metallic look matched her Oscar perfectly.

Stacks of bronze, gem-encrusted bangles and a pair of matching drop earrings topped off the ensemble.

Did Jennifer win you over with her shiny new style on Sunday night?

Menswear Midweek Round Up

Menswear Midweek round up

Chris Hemsworth: At the 2013 Foxtel Launch at Fox Studios in Sydney on Wednesday, the 29-year-old actor sported an Ermenegildo Zegna grey peak-lapel suit. He also added a white pocket square to match his unbuttoned white shirt. Chris’s suit was nicely tailored to show off his muscular frame, and usually I would prefer to have one more button done up, but he makes it work with ease.

James Franco: I like that James Franco is experimenting with suits. On his last outing he wore a rich brown-and-blue windowpane suit. For the ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ Japan premiere he stood alongside the gorgeous Rachel Weisz wearing a jade-green Gucci suit. Styling the suit with a more familiar white dress shirt, black tie and leather lace ups, I kinda wish the tie and shoes had been in a different colour.

James D’Arcy: The English actor attended a gala screening of ‘Cloud Atlas’, which he starred in, at the Curzon Mayfair in London on Monday. To the screening, James wore all Prada; his Prada navy tela-mohair suit was matched with a blue-and-white striped shirt. James styled it with a bordeaux micro-dot tie and black brushed-leather lace-up shoes for a dashing look.

Front Row @ Calvin Klein Fall 2013

Front Row at Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein presented their Fall 2013 collection on the last day of New York Fashion Week yesterday afternoon.

Jessica Chastain: The actress, who wore a Calvin Klein dress to the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, wore a rust wool dress with a three-dimensional side panel and exposed stitching throughout; the frock was accented with a black belt, and the colour really complemented her flame-coloured locks. Burgundy pumps completed her CK look.

Olivia Wilde: On occasion, we tend to find ourselves disappointed with Olivia’s red carpet look as we always want more. From the ankles up, her Calvin Klein Spring 2013 front-row look was delightful. The black strapless dress with a web-like blue overlay was also accented with a leather belt. The face of Revlon opted for silvery eye makeup, nude lips and a simple ponytail. With regards to the shoes, they feel very heavy for her look – almost like she’s carrying two bricks around her ankles. A Iwona Ludyga bracelet completed her look.

Kate Bosworth In Calvin Klein – ‘Big Sur’ Dinner Party & Premiere Hosted by Calvin Klein

Kate Bosworth In Calvin Klein  - 'Big Sur' Dinner Party & Premiere Hosted by Calvin Klein

Kate Bosworth and fiancé Michael Polish are still at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival promoting their latest movie, ‘Big Sur’.

Yesterday evening, Calvin Klein hosted an intimate dinner party at the Tavern in Park City, Utah to celebrate the movie, which was followed by the film’s premiere.

The actress was of course decked out head-to-toe in Calvin Klein with pieces from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Making the runway look her own, Kate wore the toffee shaved shearling sleeveless top over the white sleeveless turtleneck plus the toffee vinyl skirt, but she added an ivory belt and white Calvin Klein booties to her look.

Keeping her hair slicked back into a tight ponytail, she completed the look with a stringary box clutch and a glossy coral lip colour.

At times I wonder what the fuss is regarding Kate’s style. But moments like this I get it. She looks so refined and elegant, yet current with an edge whilst still maintaining the Calvin Klein minimalist ethos.

The only trouble is, I will wake up screaming thinking about those boots as I sleep tonight.
