‘Thor: The Dark World’ LA Premiere Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Thor Men LA

Some of you were a bit disappointed by the lack of variety when it came to the men’s suits at the LACMA Gala on Saturday, so this menswear post is guaranteed to prove that not all men bet on black.

Chris Hemsworth: Always guaranteed to make us swoon is Chris Hemsworth. He didn’t fail here, donning a crisp Gucci ‘Signoria’ grey peak-lapel two-button suit with a pale-blue dress shirt, silver tie and black leather lace ups. I love that he has kept this tour interesting. His burgundy suit still stands out for me.

Jonathan Howard: Opting to go one better, Jonathan wore a cobalt-blue Alexander McQueen three-piece suit styled with a pristine white shirt and a quirky grey tie with skull and polka-dot print.

Tom Hiddleston: The British actor opted for a more classic menswear look, wearing a black suit and tie. After showcasing his dance moves on Alan Carr’s ‘Chatty Man’ this weekend, he could wear a bin liner and I would still swoon.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Laura Vandervoort In Alex Perry, Zachary Quinto In Dior Homme & David Gandy In Dolce & Gabbana

Best Dressed Of The Week - Laura Vandervoort in Alex Perry, Zachary Quinto in Dior Homme & David Gandy in Dolce & Gabbana

Best dressed was a tight race between Nicole Kidman in Prada and Laura Vandervoort in Alex Perry, with Laura the eventual winner.

Some of you were shocked to see Laura take the lead as you felt there wasn’t anything particularly special about her LWD but, as pointed out, it’s the styling which took this look into another league.

When it came to the fellas you had a harder time picking a winner; Zachary Quinto in Dior Homme and David Gandy in Dolce & Gabbana tied with 36% of your votes.

I can see the dilemma. Zachary’s look was sleek and this was quite a different look for him, whereas David’s dapper three-piece suit had us swooning.

I eventually went for David.

Menswear Midweek Roundup

Menswear Midweek Roundup

Here is a roundup of some of the eye candy taking to the red carpet last night.

David Gandy: The hunky model joined the Christopher-Kane-clad Laura Whitmore and Laura Carmichael at the 2013 Scottish Fashion Awards 2013 held in London yesterday evening. Opting for something distinctively Italian, he smouldered in a Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit with a luxe velvet jacket with satin lapels topped off with a herringbone bow tie.

Michael Fassbender: For the New York screening of his movie ‘The Counselor’, the actor wore a laidback Emporio Armani look featuring jeans, a black blazer and a white shirt. Thankfully, his baby-blue eyes captivate me so much I can’t focus on how underwhelmed I am by his look.

Ralph Fiennes: A gala tribute was hosted in honour of Ralph Fiennes during the New York Film Festival yesterday evening. The British actor looked uber-chilled dressed in a sleek navy-blue Dior Homme wool two-button notch-lapel suit with a black cotton shirt and black leather derbies. This blue is a great colour for him.

Zachary Quinto In Dior Homme – ‘All Is Lost’ New York Film Festival Premiere

Zachary Quinto In Dior Homme - 'All Is Lost' New York Film Festival Premiere

Zachary Quinto attended the ‘All Is Lost’ premiere during the 51st New York Film Festival at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

Now this is something we don’t see very often. A straight-laced look from Zachary.

Usually the actor has some kind of quirk, even if it is just a skull-print bow tie; however, he kept his look very conservative on this occasion, wearing a Dior Homme navy wool two-button notch-lapel suit, white cotton shirt and stone-blue silk tie.

Nice to see the expected come so unexpected here.

Jason Bateman In Dior Homme & Amanda Anka In Christian Dior – 2013 Emmy Awards

Jason Bateman In Dior Homme & Amanda Anka In Christian Dior - 2013 Emmy Awards

Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda Anka were a Dior duo as they arrived on the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday.

He wore a Dior Homme black wool single-button peak-lapel tuxedo, a white cotton shirt, a black silk tie and black leather derbies, while she donned a Christian Dior Fall 2013 strapless dress.

Considering the formal occasion, I would’ve loved Amanda to have worn a gown version of this look. The look also feels too twee for the 44-year-old actress.

Patent-leather Dior pumps completed her look.
