Most Worn Brand 2013 – Dior

Most Worn Brand 2013 – Dior

This past year, the most ubiquitous brand on the backs of red carpet beauties was none other than Christian Dior. Few celebs could deny trotting out the ultra-famous French label, which has long enchanted with its elegance and, now, its edge, too—especially with designer Raf Simons injecting his experimental and slightly surrealist spin on the latest collections.

A style staple during awards season and a fixture at major to-dos—from the Cannes Film Festival to the Met Gala and countless movie premieres—Dior indeed dominated.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt having three ‘it’ girls as Lady Dior and Miss Dior ambassadors, with Marion Cotillard, Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lawrence unsurprisingly showing off the designer on a continual basis.

Throughout the year, Natalie paraded out a wardrobe full of Dior, especially during the ‘Thor: The Dark World’ promo circuit, remedying any fashion fatigue some may have felt towards her partnership with the brand.

French actress Marion also did Dior proud (well, at least during the first part of the year), as she put her personal touch of elegant panache on her designer exits.

And despite much debate, Jennifer still delivered on some positively memorable Dior moments. She nearly exclusively wore the label throughout the year and at ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ premiere tour.

Other Dior darlings include Cate Blanchett, Emmy Rossum, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Natalia Vodianova, Nicole Kidman and Zhang Ziyi, with even more starlets seated on the front row at the label’s couture and ready-to-wear shows.

Even the guys got in on the action, with handsome fellas including Idris Elba, Liam Hemsworth and Bruce Willis each wearing Dior Homme.

Jeremy Renner In Dior Homme – ‘American Hustle’ LA Screening

Jeremy Renner In Dior Homme - 'American Hustle' LA Screening

Jeremy Renner joined Amy Adams on the red carpet yesterday evening for the ‘American Hustle’ LA screening held at the Directors Guild Theater in California yesterday evening.

The actor donned a Dior Homme deep-blue wool notch-lapel tuxedo styled with a white cotton shirt, black silk tie and black patent-leather derbies.

We’ve seen many great suits this year but this is one of the most unique yet, as the suit has not only silk lapels but also silk detailing lining the front of the blazer, the pocket and the pants.

Is the silk overplayed here?

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 2 DecFrom movie premieres to the awards stage, the guys suited up over the past few days to hit the red carpet, impressing at every sartorial turn.

Orlando Bloom: Decked in a Lanvin Fall 2013 ensemble, Orlando attended ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Los Angeles premiere on Monday. Although his navy one-button tuxedo with black grosgrain shawl collar and white cotton dress shirt with French cuffs and antique silver cuff links were formal, his tie-less approach and black patent-leather, cap-toe sneakers kicked this look into more casual-cool territory.

Idris Elba: At the ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Paris premiere on Monday, Idris put his own spin on fifty shades of grey in a Dior Homme grey-checquered wool, notch-lapel two-button suit, paired with a black, cotton poplin shirt and a black silk tie. Grey loafers finished his outing; a nice departure from black.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor strode out his dapper best at the ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Los Angeles premiere. His Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo featured a luxe, deep mahogany velvet blazer with contrasting shawl lapel, worn with a charcoal-grey vest and tux-stripe pants and a pert black bow tie.

‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ New York Premiere Menswear Roundup

'The Hunger Games Catching Fire' New York Premiere Menswear Roundup

Liam Hemsworth and Sam Claflin joined Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks and Jena Malone on the red carpet yesterday evening in New York City for the final premiere for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’.

Liam Hemsworth: Keeping up his impeccable stylish record, the actor wore a Dior Homme classic two-button notch-lapel blue wool serge micro-check suit, with a white cotton shirt and a skinny black silk tie. The blue is really bringing out his eyes.

Sam Claflin: For the first time on this promo tour, the actor wore a tie and opted not to wear those patterned scarves he has been rocking up in until now. Donning a Prada black velvet blazer, crisp white shirt, a navy kid mohair tie and grey flannel trousers, do you like that he switched things up for the final premiere, or do you prefer his signature no-tie, double-breasted-suit look?

‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ LA Premiere Menswear Roundup

'The Hunger Games Catching Fire' LA Premiere Menswear Roundup

There were some swoon worthy gentlemen who joined Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks and Jena Malone on the red carpet on Monday evening for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ LA premiere

Liam Hemsworth: The handsome actor wore a Dior Homme black wool notch-lapel suit, white cotton shirt and a black-and-white polka-dot tie styled with David Yurman accessories.

Josh Hutcherson: The actor donned Dolce & Gabbana again, wearing a three-piece suit with a speckled-print tie to add some pizzazz to the look. On this occasion I wish the trousers had a slimmer fit.

Sam Claflin: The actor’s tieless streak continued. He wore an Alexander McQueen Prince of Wales double breasted jacket with a white open shirt, signature printed scarf and black trousers. I like the individual pieces, but not as it is styled here.

Alan Ritchson: You are always guaranteed to stand out in a Versace Collection suit, so the handsome actor selected a teal-green two-button suit with notched lapels, which he styled with a white Versace shirt and black skinny tie.

Does Alan upstage the main stars in their dark suits, or do you prefer their more classic red-carpet look?
