‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere Menswear Round Up

‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere Menswear Round Up

‘The Great Gatsby’ stars Joel Edgerton and Tobey Maguire were on the carpet for their film’s Australia premiere in Sydney on Wednesday.

Joel Edgerton: Even when half his outfit is drenched, Joel makes it look good. He wore an Ermenegildo Zegna grey two-button notch-lapel jacket along with a pair of grey trousers. The light grey was a suitable colour and it looked good with the brown shoes and purple tie.

Tobey Maguire: Keeping his slim silhouette, Tobey opted for a well-cut Saint Laurent navy gabardine suit. It fit well, though the pants bunched up a bit by the ankles. He kept the look subtle with a white Dylan-collar shirt and a black silk tie.

Both actors kept their looks simple. I liked Joel’s because of the shoes and the coloured tie, however, Tobey’s gabardine suit was able to withstand the downpour.

Liam Hemsworth In Ermenegildo Zegna - ‘The Hunger Games Catching Fire’ Cannes Film Festival Party

Liam Hemsworth joined Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet at Baoli Beach for a party to celebrate ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Party during Cannes Film Festival in France on Saturday evening.

After wearing all black to the ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian) premiere earlier in the evening, the handsome actor was feeling blue, selecting a two-button notched lapel Ermenegildo Zegna suit.

Opting to rock the look sans tie – it was a party after all – he completed the look with brown oxford lace up Max Verre shoes.

I don’t know about you; but I can’t look into his eyes in fear of turning to jelly.

Bradley Cooper In Ermenegildo Zegna & Vivienne Westwood MAN - The Today Show & The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon

It was a busy day for Bradley Cooper, who was promoting his latest movie ‘The Hangover Part 3’.

He started his day on the Today show, when he made every woman in America swoon by presenting Matt Lauer’s co-presenter Savannah Guthrie with a bunch of red roses after she announced her engagement.

The actor looked very handsome, wearing an Ermenegildo Zegna grey two-button notched-lapel suit with a blue button-down shirt sans tie.

Later the same day, Bradley continued to promote his new movie with a guest appearance on ‘The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon’, wearing a Vivienne Westwood suit.

His navy suit styled with a light-blue shirt and tie gets it second outing, as the actor first wore this suit to the 2013 Elle Style Awards.

‘The Great Gatsby’ World Premiere Menswear Round Up

‘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

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.
