Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

While tasteless was the dominant trend at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday night (May 17), I was grateful to see that a few good men brought some class back to the show. Here, a look at some of the Billboard styles plus a look at the latest round of gentleman at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

Matthew McConaughey: His terribly scruffy beard had no place this glossy Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit at ‘The Sea of Trees’ premiere, which he attended with Naomi Watts during the Cannes Film Fest on Saturday (May 16). The nightshade hue of his jacket was divine though. Will the facial hair ever meet a razor.

Nick Jonas
: Also rocking an inspiring eggplant shade, Nick looked mighty fine in his monochromatic Kenzo suit at the Billboard Music Awards, although the pants could have been less slouchy and rumpled. His plus one, Olivia Culpo, was among the girls in sparkly, skin-baring attire, hers a black Elie Saab playsuit that still ranked as more tasteful than some of the other sartorial tragedies of the night.

Bella Thorne In Mugler & Emporio Armani – 2015 Shorty Awards & MTV 2015 Upfront Presentation

Bella Thorne In Mugler & Emporio Armani - 2015 Shorty Awards & MTV 2015 Upfront Presentation
Bella Thorne debuted two different looks in as many days for the 2015 Shorty Awards and the MTV 2015 Upfront Presentation, both in New York City, this week.

2015 Shorty Awards
: First up, the starlet was at the awards presentation at TheTimesCenter on Monday (April 20) where she wore a Mugler forest-green dress, which is a beautiful colour to set her flame-red locks on fire. The come-hither allure of cutouts at the front and low back was sultry yet also sophisticatedly balanced by a clutch and embellished Jimmy Choo pumps in tonal shades to create a streamlined effect.

MTV 2015 Upfront Presentation: For the MTV event on Tuesday (April 21), she showed her stripes in an Emporio Armani Spring 2015 cropped top and trouser that featured a more tailored, mannish silhouette than her previous entrance. She carried off this bold, cool-girl move with ease. The secret was in the restrained styling with relaxed long waves and white sandals all that were needed to complete those stripes.

Janelle Monae In Emporio Armani – 2015 BRIT Awards

Janelle Monae In Emporio Armani - 2015 BRIT Awards

Janelle Monae attended the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25) in London, England.

The singer was in customary black and white, wearing a detailed velvet suit by Emporio Armani.

As I’ve said before, when it comes to her look I love that her suiting options, despite the theme, differ greatly; however, the wheels fall off that statement when you consider the Milner Gladys hat.

Having worn it a few times before, it is this accessory that gives her look a feeling of déjà vu/groundhog day. It’s like Pharrell Williams and his Vivienne Westwood hat – it’s so distinctive that it becomes all you see.

Men 25 Feb

Between premieres and the Elle Style Awards, there was a lot of man candy on the red carpet last night.

Will Smith: Looking as sharp as ever, the actor joined his wife Jada Pinkett Smith on the red carpet for the ‘Focus’ LA premiere wearing a striped three-piece suit working a divine combo of navy and lilac.

Lewis Hamilton: The Formula 1 racing driver wore a rich burgundy suit from Marni’s Spring 2015 collection, taking styling notes from Tinie Tempah and opting for cropped trousers that showed off his Cesare Casadei black moccasins. I’m not sure if this looks cool or comical. Cool from the calves up methinks.

Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Gary Barlow In Emporio Armani – ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ World Premiere

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" - World Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals

Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Gary Barlow from Take That attended the world premiere of ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ held at Odeon Leicester Square on Wednesday (January 14) in London, England.

They all wore Emporio Armani, going for a two button tieless look, to a triple button wool suit and a double breasted satin lapel suit.

While the suits are different in style, the issue with their trouser length is the same – way too long.

2015 Golden Globes Menswear Roundup

2015 Golden Globes Menswear Roundup

The guys were none too shabby when it came to their sartorial selections at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards, held last night (January 11) at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, boasting a range of looks that went way beyond the standard black tux.

Matt Bomer: The Best Supporting Actor winner for ‘The Normal Heart’ was dressed just as winningly in an impeccable Ralph Lauren Black Label navy shawl collar tuxedo that naturally brought out his own baby blues and was handsomely paired with a dark bowtie and crisp white button-down shirt.

Eddie Redmayne: Looking as sharp as ever, ‘The Theory of Everything’ Best Actor winner took a Euro-cool version of black velvet out for a spin, donning a Gucci notch-lapel, two-button New Signoria evening jacket with a white evening shirt, black satin bowtie, black tuxedo trousers and black patent leather lace-up shoes.

Alan Cumming
: Having quite the nude moment, ‘The Good Wife’ actor and nominee wore a buff wool, two-button peak lapel tuxedo, buff dress shirt and buff silk skinny tie from the Spring 2015 Calvin Klein Collection. Between the monochromatic buff-ness and the rolled pant legs, not to mention his Christian Louboutin ‘Mika On Stage’ sneakers, this look translated as more comical than cool.
