Red Carpet Fashion Awards

‘The Great Gatsby’ World Premiere Menswear Round Up

The gents weren’t about to be left in the shade for the world premiere of ‘The Great Gatsby’ last night.

Leonardo DiCaprio: I was swooning when Leo took to the red carpet looking sharp in a baltico-blue Prada two-button notched-lapel suit. Keeping the look classic with a white dress shirt, navy silk tie, and black lace-up shoes, all by Prada, I did wonder why he didn’t take his pants up a few inches. They are way too long but this appears to be a continual thing on the red carpet when it comes to menswear.

Tobey Maguire: The actor joined co-star Leonardo DiCaprio by also opting for a classic dark-coloured suit by Saint Laurent. His wife, Jennifer Meyer, cozied up to her hubby wearing a look from the Saint Laurent Fall 2013 collection. Her babydoll floral-embroidered dress featuring a white collar and black velvet tie translates rather nicely on the red carpet. She added the celebrity favourite Saint Laurent ‘Betty’ bag and black Alaïa embellished suede sandals to her look.

Jay Z: As the music and executive producer for ‘The Great Gatsby’, the rapper took to the red carpet to celebrate this part in the movie wearing a Tom Ford suit, not surprisingly. His two-button notched-lapel charcoal checked suit fit perfectly. Looking fresh to death, Jay added a taupe tie to his white dress shirt, completing his look with formal black shoes.

Joel Edgerton: The actor lightened things up, wearing an Ermenegildo Zegna two-button notched-lapel grey suit, styled with a white shirt and purple tie. In a sea of dark suits, this light-grey look was very refreshing; however, I have to say that Tobey is my favourite here.

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

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" 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.

"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.
