Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

mens 1

Here is a roundup of some menswear red carpet looks, including a one more from the Grammys.

Robert Pattinson: Always one to keep menswear interesting, the British actor wore several shades of grey in his Gucci look, which included a ‘Signoria’ wool coat and a red tie. I’m sure he was a gentleman and offered said coat to co-star Alessandra Mastronardi, who wore a strapless Elie Saab gown to the same event.

Dane DeHaan: The actor was not to be outdone. The face of Prada wore Prada, wearing an impeccably tailored navy kid mohair two-button suit with a sky-blue Oxford shirt and navy satin bow tie. If only Prada’s women’s red carpet offerings could have the same 100% hit rate as the men’s.

Ryan Reynolds: Leaving his gorgeous wife and newborn at home, Ryan joined the evergreen Helen Mirren on the red carpet for the Berlin Film Festival premiere of ‘Women in Gold’. Sticking to classic black, the slim-fit suit was styled with a striped tie that almost gives a nod to collegiate style.

Helen Mirren In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Woman in Gold’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Helen Mirren In Dolce & Gabbana - 'Woman in Gold' Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Helen Mirren attended the ‘Woman in Gold’ photocall and premiere held during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Monday (February 9) in Berlin, Germany.

The British beauty – and new face of L’Oreal Paris – wore a gorgeous signature lace gown from Dolce & Gabbana.

She couldn’t look more radiant if she tried.

The vivid colour saturating her lavish lace gown captures immediate attention, while its expertly tailored statuesque silhouette and deeply scooped neckline inspire lasting admiration, with diamonds only heightening the allure.

It may not be decked out with embellishments à la Elizabeth Banks, but it has the same dramatic impact.

Never fails to impress.

2015 Grammy Awards Men Red Carpet Roundup

Grammys mens

A handful of gents made waves at the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, where their looks carried some eclectic personality, yet still fell in a rather safe camp for such a night.

Kanye West: Striking a tough, hands-in-pockets pose, the rapper and nominee accentuated the aloof attitude in a Balmain Homme suit, worn shirtless with a slight slouch to the pants. It all made sense until I saw the weathered pair of black cowboy boots, which was the unexpected, rebel twist. Yay or nay to the boots?

Jay Z: The music mogul was dressed to impress in a Burberry modern-fit English-woven wool and mohair tuxedo in an inky blue hue with a black silk contrast shawl collar. He couldn’t have looked sharper if he tried.

Common
: Taking a monochromatic, all-black approach, the rapper and multiple nominee wore a well-tailored Givenchy suit that he pulled off handsomely enough to not appear too one-note.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

menswear

Here is a quick roundup of some gents who caught my eye on the red carpet this week.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor joined Keira Knightley for the ‘Imitation Game’ pre-BAFTA reception held at the ME Hotel on Thursday (February 5) in London, England, attending his first red carpet event this year without his glamorous plus one, Sophie Hunter. As we would expect, his classic suit was tailored to perfection. Once in a while I would like to see something other than black from Benedict, but he scrubs up so nicely that one can’t blame him for sticking to tried and true.

David Oyelowo: The British actor is yet to stick to safe black. He wore a dual-colour biscuit and black Dolce & Gabbana suit to the Virtuosos Awards at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. On some this would’ve been questionable, but on someone with his flair it works.

Ethan Hawke: For the American Riviera Awards ceremony, held during at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Thursday (February 5), Ethan selected a midnight-blue suit, which by his standards was quite sombre considering his love for colour.

Kerry Washington In Dolce & Gabbana – The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal Spring Shopping Event

Kerry Washington In Dolce & Gabbana - The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal Spring Shopping Event

Kerry Washington hosted The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal Spring Shopping Event on Tuesday (February 3) in Glendale, California.

Curiously, once again, she opted not to wear the collection, instead selecting a look from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2015 collection.

I have to say I adore the look, white pumps with the polka dot heel from Sophia Webster included.

The polka-dot frock with trumpet cuffs fills me with the joys of spring, plus the look is so very pretty with the monochrome style full-on, and frilly and feminine especially when styled with a Roger Vivier ‘Love’ and heart-motif shoulder bag and bold red lip.

As Kerry’s style has been ‘meh’ at best recently, I’m delighted to see her back to her very best here.

You can buy Kerry’s Dolce & Gabbana Polka Dot Dress from
Saks.com, Luisa via Roma US, Luisa via Roma Europe and Luisa via Roma UK.
