Our menswear roundup takes us to three different places charting the look of some of Hollywood’s handsome up-and-coming stars.
Riz Ahmed: The British actor, who’s up for an Emmy for HBO limited series ‘The Night Of’, made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Monday (August 14), wearing a Burberry suit. The look was expertly tailored for a sharp impression, yet his styling gives the mood a cool, relaxed feel.
Mamoudou Athie: For the ‘Patti Cake$’ New York premiere, the up-and-coming actor showcased Dior Homme’s fresh yet time-honoured aesthetic in a polka-dot matching suit and shirt combo. Like Riz, the overall look is smart and relaxed with Gisueppe Zanotti loafers completing his suave look.
Ansel Elgort: Continuing to take over the promotional duties for ‘Baby Driver’ by himself in Beijing, China, the actor was eternally classic and looking sophisticated in style wearing Tom Ford. You haven’t been too enthused by his more directional looks, so how does this traditional suit fair?
The ‘Detroit’ premiere in Detroit, Michigan on Tuesday (July 25) brought a number of men to the red carpet this week, with the Paris premiere of ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ rounding out this mid-week roundup.
Will Poulter: For the premiere of ‘Detroit,’ Will kept it traditionally safe in a Prada Fall 2017 navy suit sparked with a blue-gray dress shirt and standard maroon tie.
Algee Smith: Also in a Prada Fall 2017 ensemble at the ‘Detroit’ premiere, I was far more jazzed about Algee’s blue number that was only strengthened more by the graphic impact of his patterned yellow-and-black shirting. It made for a punchy yet polished showing that certainly caught my attention.
Anthony Mackie: While too much sheen can be a strike against a look, I still liked Anthony’s bold embrace of colour here, playing off the pinstripe in his blue Isaia suit with the teal dress shirt and tie. It was unusual, yes, but spunky. Salvatore Ferragamo calf-leather, lace-up shoes completed his ‘Detroit’ statement.
The men finished out the week on a strong note with a range of events from San Diego to New York City.
Dave Franco: While at Comic-Con 2017 in San Diego on Thursday (July 20), Dave channeled a darker side of Hawaiian style with the more sinister-inspired, palm print of this shirt from The Kooples. I love his clean styling approach, neatly tucking the shirt into his cropped trousers.
Jack Lowden: Jack put his best business-sleek foot forward at the ‘Dunkirk’ New York City premiere on Tuesday (July 18), donning a Canali suit in suave shades of gray that was polished to perfection.
Harry Styles: There would be no buttoned-up mood for Harry at The Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show on Wednesday (July 19) in New York City, as he had some flight-of-fancy fun with his custom Stella McCartney silk crepe-de-chine swallow shirt. Skinny denim and toe-cap boots completed the urban-western mood.
The ‘Dunkirk’ world premiere was held on Thursday (July 13) in London; here, a roundup of the red-carpet entrances.
Tom Hardy: Not content to resort to a standard suit for the high-profile premiere, Tom looked to Gucci for this midnight-blue three-piece ‘Monaco’ suit that featured an all-over diamond-print. With his striped tie and shirt and the contrasting pocket square, I feel as if he could have probably done without the tie clips. Christian Louboutin shoes rounded out his suave statement.
Charlotte Riley: I was thrilled to see Charlotte in the Galvan jumpsuit from the Pre-Fall 2017 collection that Shay Mitchell previously wore in a different colourway. The piece presents so much better in the singular shade, as she was modern elegance personified here—while smartly coordinating in hue with husband Tom’s midnight-blue look.
Harry Styles: Harry makes his acting debut in ‘Dunkirk,’ and he dressed to impress for his red-carpet premiere in a custom Gucci double-breasted suit that may have been tamer than his penchant for bold, colourful looks. But, it still had all of his eternally cool, sartorial nonchalance. I love how he finished the ensemble with the burgundy-red boots that were another nod to his signature style.
