Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the men who have taken to the red carpet on this very quiet week.

Richard Madden: The ‘Game of Thrones’ actor, who is Prince Charming to Lily James’ Cinderella, joined his co-star on the red carpet for the LA premiere on Sunday (March 1). He wore Dolce & Gabbana with fine details that make this tuxedo suit the flawless epitome of black-tie elegance, but it’s the blue eyes that really draw you in.

Dev Patel: The British actor attended ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Tuesday (March 3) in New York City. I love Dev for never opting for the classic, expected look. Like David Oyelowo, Dev is not afraid of colour or experimenting with different fabrications. On this occasion he wore a Salvatore Ferragamo tan corduroy notched-lapel suit, which on paper doesn’t appeal but in real life exemplifies the essence of sartorial dressing. This look did make me chuckle as it reminded me of the ‘Sex And The City’ episode where Steve asks Miranda, “What’s wrong with corduroy?” to which she replies, “I don’t have enough time to tell you what’s wrong with corduroy.” Dev proves that statement wrong.

Goya Toledo In Dolce & Gabbana – Fotogramas Awards

Goya Toledo In Dolce & Gabbana - Fotogramas Awards

Goya Toledo attended the Fotogramas Awards ceremony held at Joy Eslava on Monday (March 2) in Madrid, Spain.

Known for her love of all things Elie Saab, the actress opted for a different designer on this rare occasion, wearing Dolce & Gabbana.

Her ruched strapless dress, lavishly decorated with the brand’s signature carnations – a favourite of Domenico Dolce’s mother – had plenty of flamenco spirit infused by the ruffles enlivening the skirt.

A gold choker would’ve been my choice to take this down a more directional route, but Goya’s cuff and opulent gold earrings serve this exotic piece just as well.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Diane Kruger In Donna Karan Atelier & Rosamund Pike In Givenchy Couture

BDOTW 2 march

Red was the colour of the week as the majority of our favourites donned the colour on Oscar night.

Emma Stone’s 100% record of winning best dressed polls was finally broken by the one and only Diane Kruger, who took our breath away in a crimson Donna Karan Atelier jumpsuit.

After a truly lacklustre awards season, Rosamund Pike finally gave us something to smile about on Oscar night, wearing a stunning Givenchy Couture gown. Had she been an Olympic hurdler, this would’ve been her jumping the final hurdle before crossing the finishing line having knocked over all of the previous hurdles.

With Eddie Redmayne suppressing his love for colour and patterns this awards season, my favourite by far was David Oyelowo for standing out in his bold red Dolce & Gabbana, while you went for the classic elegance of the dashing Chris Pine.

Paloma Faith In Armani Privé, Giles & Dolce & Gabbana – 2015 BRIT Awards

Paloma Faith In Armani Privé 2015 BRIT Awards

It was a busy night for Paloma Faith, who attended the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25) in London, England.

Following the red carpet, she gave us a moving rain-soaked performance before collecting her award for ‘Best British Female Artist’.

Here is a rundown of her three looks.

Red Carpet: Despite this look being a re-run, I loved seeing this Armani Privé Fall 2014 tulle bustier dress with red polka dots and black veil net with small raised red chenille decorations on the red carpet once again. I’m still in awe of how elegant and refined the look is. Paloma does it justice, toning down her theatrics for a sleek hairstyle and bold red lip. You may remember that Rocio Munoz Morales wore this same dress during Sanremo 2015.

2015 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscar men

The men were out in force at the 2015 Oscars and the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where there was plenty of handsome inspiration to go around from a fine group of fellows.

Jared Leto: Getting the evening started on a non-traditional note, the actor and musician was every bit the unorthodox Academy Awards dresser in his baby-blue Givenchy tux, accented by a white bowtie and white lug sole shoes. He let his hair down literally and made no excuses for it, saying that the Oscars was his going-away party for his locks. I wonder if the beard was also included in that party. While no one could pull this off like Jared, between the mane and the male pastels, this was verging on almost too much too handle.

Chris Pine: A stark contrast to Jared, Chris went for the all-out traditionally classic route and suited up in a Giorgio Armani black double-breasted peak-lapel tuxedo. It was impeccable and goes to show what transformative power a well-tailored tux can have.

David Oyelowo: Looking as if he was inspired by the red carpet itself, the ‘Selma’ actor dressed to impress in a crimson Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo word with #TackleEbola handcrafted pin by Jason of Beverly Hills. He does a great job pulling off this colour, yet I’m not completely sold on the satiny look of the vest and bowtie underneath.

2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

Vanity Fair Party

Here is an quick roundup from the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, which took place on Sunday (February 22).

Jane Fonda: The actress shows us that Zuhair Murad doesn’t always spell tacky. This Spring 2015 Couture jumpsuit is divine and she is working it like no other. Kudos to her. Jimmy Choo ‘Creole’ pumps and a Rauwolf clutch accessorized her look.

Regina King: This Nicolas Jebran gown won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love the artful colours on this design. I don’t, however, like the illusion neckline. Not close enough to her skin tone.

Leslie Mann: Like Naomi Watts, Leslie went the white suiting route, layering up with a selection of gold Neil Lane jewels the look probably didn’t really require so much of.
