Best Dressed Of The Week – Jaimie Alexander In Marc Bouwer, Tong Liya In Valentino & Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna

BDOTW 29 April

Jaimie Alexander was your best dressed this week wearing a bright yellow Marc Bouwer gown to the ‘Iron Man 3’ premiere.

It took me a while to make my choice, but I eventually went with Tong Liya’s heavenly Valentino gown.

As for the men, the choice was much easier; Chris Pine in Ermenegildo Zegna. You also agreed that this was the best choice in menswear this week.

Menswear Midweek Round Up

Menswear Midweek Round Up

Chris Hemsworth: For the 50th Anniversary Wool Awards in Sydney on Tuesday, the Australian actor sported an Ermenegildo Zegna light-grey three-piece suit with notch lapels. He paired the well-cut suit with a white shirt, a matching patterned tie, and black leather boots. I prefer this finished look to his usual unbuttoned-shirt look.

Matthew McConaughey: After stepping out in a wildly perfect Vivienne Westwood MAN suit for the ‘Mud’ screening, Matthew returned to his usual brand in a Dolce & Gabbana classic black suit from the sartorial collection for an appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’. His conservative notch-lapel suit was finished off with a white shirt and black lace-up shoes. I liked the multicoloured suit more, but this was the perfect casual look for a late show.

Brad Goreski: Opting for a loud red carpet look, Bravo’s Brad Goreski wore a Ferragamo yellow double-breasted suit from the Spring 2013 collection for the 24th GLAAD Media Awards in LA on Saturday. It’s incredibly bright and features just one set of buttons, making it even more difficult to pull off. Brad is zany enough for it, but I don’t think it fit as well as it could have. It did go well with the light-blue tab-collar shirt and the green-and-yellow tie, though.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Sydney Premiere

"Star Trek Into Darkness" Australian Premiere - Arrivals

Karl Urban, Chris Pine, director J. J. Abrams and Zachary Quinto were back out promoting their latest movie, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, with the Sydney premiere in Australia this evening.

Karl Urban: Going from dark-grey to midnight-blue, the actor still looked very smart, adding a tie to his look on this occasion.

Chris Pine: The handsome actor wore another Ermenegildo Zegna suit. This time, he wore a grey striped notched-lapel suit styled with a Band of Outsiders striped tie and tan Ralph Lauren shoes. The suit fits to perfection and brings out his blue eyes – what more can a girl ask for?

J. J. Abrams: The director scrubbed up rather nicely, going from a plaid shirt and jeans to a very smart black suit, which he styled with a grey shirt and striped tie.

Zachary Quinto: The actor loves keeping things interesting and this occasion was no different. He wore a sharp shawl-collar Margiela suit, which he jazzed up with a blue polka-dot shirt and burgundy Calvin Klein bow tie. Matching his Calvin Klein shoes to his bow tie was a nice touch. I already can’t wait to see what he serves up next.

With all this eye-candy and sharp dressing, I don’t find myself missing Zoe Saldana from this promo tourr.

Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna – ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Sydney Photocall

"Star Trek Into Darkness" - Portraits

Karl Urban, Chris Pine, J. J. Abrams and Zachary Quinto attended the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ photocall in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday.

Karl Urban: On a gloriously beautiful day, I wish the New Zealander had opted for a lighter-coloured suit.

Chris Pine: In a sea of navy and grey, Chris stands out for me here in his blue notched-lapel two-button Ermenegildo Zegna suit, styled with a white dress shirt and blue silk pocket square. I’m thankful that he opted to wear tan shoes on this occasion.

J.J. Abrams: The director/producer sported a semi-casual look featuring jeans, a plaid shirt and grey blazer.

Zachary Quinto: On such a warm, sunny day, I’m not sure the actor really needed the sweater.

‘Oblivion’ LA Premiere Menswear Round Up

'Oblivion' LA Premiere Menswear Round Up

So many beautiful ladies attended the ‘Oblivion’ premiere last night, but let’s not forget about the men.

Tom Cruise: I’m sure Tom might have felt that pairing his grey suit with a grey turtleneck made him look more youthful, but I find this look aging. Ferragamo Tramezza special-edition shoes completed his look.

Morgan Freeman: Looking very dapper in a classic tux, Morgan’s notched-lapel suit with satin lapels, flap pockets and a pocket square was styled with a neat bow tie. Because the actor is so cool, he added shades to his look.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau: Adding some colour to the red carpet (and eye candy to the movie), Nikolaj donned a chocolate-brown Ermenegildo Zegna suit. Adding a sweater didn’t have the aging effect it had on Tom’s look, as he also styled his look with a crisp white shirt and copper skinny tie.

Menswear Red Carpet Round Up

Menswear 9 April 2013

Nick Cannon: The host of ‘America’s Got Talent’ joined Heidi Klum on the red carpet at the Rockefeller Center for the New York auditions. Going for a dapper look wearing a two-piece Vivienne Westwood Man suit, I find myself being bothered by the fit of the pants. The blazer features an insert waistcoat, giving the look a smart but trendy feel with a gold chain and button closure He styled his suit with a grey floral brooch, a lavender shirt, a blue printed tie with a tie pin, and grey shoes.

Robert Downing Jr.: The actor is still in Asia promoting the third installment of the ‘Iron Man’ franchise. On this occasion, he attended a photocall in Beijing, China wearing a Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2013 burgundy cotton two-button notch lapel suit. Aside from the obligatory sneakers by Lanvin, this was a surprisingly quirk-free look. I love the colour; the complementary CK shirt and purple tinted glasses help make this one of his best looks so far on this tour.

Alexander Skarsgard: The handsome actor joined Paula Patton on the red carpet last night for the ‘Disconnect’ New York screening. I have one word for Alexander in this Calvin Klein grey suit and black shirt: swoon.

Chris Hemsworth: At the 2013 Foxtel Launch at Fox Studios in Sydney on Wednesday, the 29-year-old actor sported an Ermenegildo Zegna grey peak-lapel suit. He also added a white pocket square to match his unbuttoned white shirt. Chris’s suit was nicely tailored to show off his muscular frame, and usually I would prefer to have one more button done up, but he makes it work with ease.

James Franco: I like that James Franco is experimenting with suits. On his last outing he wore a rich brown-and-blue windowpane suit. For the ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ Japan premiere he stood alongside the gorgeous Rachel Weisz wearing a jade-green Gucci suit. Styling the suit with a more familiar white dress shirt, black tie and leather lace ups, I kinda wish the tie and shoes had been in a different colour.

James D’Arcy: The English actor attended a gala screening of ‘Cloud Atlas’, which he starred in, at the Curzon Mayfair in London on Monday. To the screening, James wore all Prada; his Prada navy tela-mohair suit was matched with a blue-and-white striped shirt. James styled it with a bordeaux micro-dot tie and black brushed-leather lace-up shoes for a dashing look.

Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna – Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Scientific & Technical Awards

Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna - Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Scientific & Technical Awards

At the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Scientific and Technical Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday actor Chris Pine served as co-host along with ‘Star Trek’ co-star, Zoe Saldana. The 32-year-old actor arrived on the red carpet in a modern take on a classic look.

Wearing an Ermenegildo Zegna black, two-button tuxedo suited Chris very well. The wide peak lapels and black tie looked phenomenal considering the pants and jacket were tailored to near perfection.

I think we can all see the problem here. It’s ironic that Chris can’t see it. Those frames are much too large and chunky for his face. I like that he is accessorizing with black glasses, but those are incredibly distracting and not the least bit flattering.

The two sci-fi stars will be seen on screen together in the sequel, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, which will be released in theatres on May 17.
