Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Mens 16 October

Here’s a quick menswear roundup.

James Marsden: The actor joined his ‘The Best Of Me’ co-star Michelle Monaghan for the 20th Annual Fulfillment Fund Stars Benefit Gala held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday (October 14) in Beverly Hills, California. He wore a navy cotton jacket with a military-taped lapel from Kent and Curwen’s Spring 2015 collection, styled with a mahogany tie which matched his patent-leather shoes. Yet another swoon-worthy look from the guy who is ruling the red carpet at the moment.

Brad Pitt: When I saw the actor on the red carpet last night (October 15) for ‘The Fury’ Washington D.C. premiere, the first thing to come to mind was George “Pornstache” Mendez from ‘Orange is the New Black’. ‘Tache aside, the actor looked very suave in his charcoal-grey suit.

Miles Teller: The actor attended the gala premiere for ‘Whiplash’ during the 58th BFI London Film Festival at Odeon Leicester Square on Thursday (October 15) in London, England. Not letting the non-stop rain dampen his suit, the actor looked very dapper in his dark-wood windowpane notched-lapel suit. Much like James Marsden, the actor has showcased impeccable style all year.

Kristen Bell In Dsquared² – ‘The Judge’ LA Premiere

Kristen Bell In  Dsquared² - 'The Judge' LA Premiere

Kristen Bell attended the LA premiere of ‘The Judge’ held at AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Wednesday (October 1) in Beverly Hills, California.

Unlike fellow mum-to-be Zoe Saldana, who covered her bump, Kristen opted to showcase her bump wearing a form-fitting Dsquared² black halter dress.

The streamline look couldn’t be a more beautiful display of her body and her style. Keeping the look tonal, she styled her frock with a Ferragamo clutch and Brian Atwood sandals.

Picking a best-dressed maternity star this year is going to be tough. I love that they are all winning the challenge of dressing for the red carpet when their bodies are constantly changing.

Nieves Alvarez In Dsquared² – 2014 Icon Magazine Awards

Nieves Alvarez In Dsquared² - 2014 Icon Magazine Awards

Nieves Alvarez attended the 2014 Icon Magazine Awards held at the Italian Consulate on Wednesday (October 1) in Madrid, Spain.

Mastering the masculine trend to perfection, the model wore a Dsquared2 black double-breasted tuxedo with satin peaked lapels paired with a crisp white shirt and black bowtie.

I love her 100% commitment to this look: the steely glare, the manly pose, the slicked-back hair. Not trying to play this down at all works in her favour.

Adding slight feminine touches, she styled the look with Christian Louboutin accessories including peep-toe ankle-strap sandals and a crystallized clutch.

Does anyone here believe that Christian Louboutin flats or brogues would’ve worked better with this look, or are you enjoying this dominant masculine look with slight feminine touches?

Rose Byrne In Dsquared² – ‘You Can’t Take It With You’ Opening Night

Rose Byrne In Dsquared² - 'You Can't Take It With You' Opening Night
Rose Byrne attended the Broadway opening night performance after party for ‘You Can’t Take It With You’ at the Brasserie 8 ½ on Sunday (September 28) in New York City.

Dazzling in a deep shade of scintillating bronze, she wore a Dsquared² Resort 2015 silk-chiffon halter dress with a plissé skirt and a draped, cutout bustier paired with complementary Casadei blade heels.

With a languid, slinky vibe, the metallic number looked back to the retro spirit of the ’70s yet was entirely modern, especially with Rose’s impossibly sleek bob.

Styled with a simple bangle and golden box Oroton clutch, this was a glam yet effortless entrance from the actress.

Jessica Chastain In Dsquared² – ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’ San Sebastian Film Festival Photocall

Jessica Chastain In Dsquared²  - 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' San Sebastian Film Festival Photocall
Following yesterday’s premiere of ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,’ Jessica Chastain breezed through the film’s photo call at the Aquarium during the 62nd San Sebastian International Film Festival today (September 23) in San Sebastian, Spain.

The actress continued her embrace of the feminine, full-skirted cocktail frock with a custom Dsquared² orange and lilac jacquard design.

The rosy, radiant colours of the dress were a beautiful complement to her fiery waves.

As for the Christian Louboutin ‘Pensamoi’ hot-fuchsia sandals, they were the perfectly sweet frosting on top. You may remember that Emma Stone first wore these flower-accented shoes in black.

Once again opting to keep her accessories to a chic minimum, she wore a Jaeger Le-Coultre timepiece in lieu of jewels for a classic finish.

Jennifer Lopez In Dsquared² – ‘American Idol’ XIV Photocall

Jennifer Lopez In Dsquared² - 'American Idol' XIV Photocall
Jennifer Lopez attended the ‘American Idol XIV’ photo call, held at the New York Marriott Brooklyn Bridge today (September 17) in New York City.

Taking snakeskin-print to another level, she was completely decked in blue python in a Dsquared² Fall 2014 micro-dress paired with matching pumps and handbag.

This frock also took her hemline to another level—an even shorter one that left me wondering just how short can she go. Hopefully no sitting was required here, as it could have presented a challenge.

She completed the leggy look with a glossy nude lip and a smoky blue eye that was in tune with the ensemble, along with half-up, half-down waves that likewise reflected the retro spirit of the dress.

GQ Men Of The Year Awards Menswear Roundup

GQ Men1

Even though the girls grabbed plenty of stares at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2), the evening was about the guys, after all. Many in the handsome bunch were naturally dressed to impress.

Douglas Booth: Rather appropriately attired in a bespoke BOSS Made to Measure suit to accept his Hugo Boss Most Stylish Man award, the actor didn’t leave anyone guessing as to his sartorial cred. He was as charming as ever in this navy-blue number. The perfect bow tie was my favourite part—the icing on the cake.

Dan Stevens: The British actor and one of the evening’s presenters wore a Dior Homme Prussian blue slim, shawl-collar tuxedo with a white cotton wing-tip tuxedo shirt and black patent leather derbies. The colour of the suit was obviously selected to bring out his intense baby-blue gaze, which helped detract from the fact that the black satin bow tie was rather oversized.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The Actor of the Year winner took a monochromatic approach in an all-black three-piece Spencer Hart suit and tie. He could have done better for his big night.
