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.

Menswear Midweek Round Up

Menswear Midweek round up

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.

Bruce Willis In Dior Homme & Jai Courtney In Ermenegildo Zegna – ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ Event

Bruce Willis In Dior Homme & Jia Courtney In Ermenegildo Zenga - 'A Good Day to Die Hard' Event

To celebrate 25 years of ‘Die Hard’ franchise, Bruce Willis, along with ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ costar, Jai Courtney, attended a dedication event in Century City California on Thursday.

Bruce Willis: The face of the ‘Die Hard’ franchise donned a Dior Homme grey wool suit with peak lapels, matched with a silver skinny tie. Unfortunately for Willis, his skinny tie looks extra skinny next to his forward-point collar, and his pants were made for someone four inches taller.

Jai Courtney: His co-star on the other hand, looks exquisite in a perfectly-tailored Ermenegildo Zegna blue suit, paired with caramel-coloured shoes, a pocket square and an English spread collar shirt. Plus, his pindot tie adds some welcomed pattern to an eye-catching ensemble.

The two action stars can be seen taking up their roles as John McClane and John McClane Jr., respectively, in the franchise’s fifth installment, which will be released in theaters on Valentine’s Day.

2013 SAG Awards Menswear Round Up

2013 SAG Awards Menswear Round UpWith gowns galore parading down awards-gala red carpets, it’s always hard to focus on the tuxes—no matter how handsome they and their inhabitants are. But at the 2013 SAG Awards, hosted last night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, the men had their moment. Like many of the girls, some of the guys played with color—albeit to mixed success. But it all made for a far more entertaining and colorful show.

Eddie Redmayne: The ‘Les Miserables’ star continues to deliver great red-carpet performances. The British actor carried off a slimly tailored tuxedo by BOSS Black, rendered in a luxe brown, crushed velvet. He paired it with a white shirt and matching dress shoes from the label. In a sea of black and blue, this delicious chocolate color was a smooth statement—so was Eddie’s cool-boy coif.

Bradley Cooper: The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actor and nominee chose Tom Ford for his big night. The midnight navy color of his single-breasted tux, featuring a black satin shawl collar, reminded me of some of the similarly colored gowns seen last night, such as the one from Jennifer Lawrence. I wish his black bow tie didn’t appear crooked, throwing the polish of this look awry.

Cory Monteith: This ‘Glee’ cutie stepped outside the norm with his Calvin Klein tuxedo paired with a sleek set of black Christian Louboutin loafers. His cufflinks and tie bar were by Ox and Bull Trading Co. and his timepiece from Versace. The exaggerated peak lapel in black contrasted sharply with the light heather grey of the single-breasted jacket. But was Cory red-carpet-royalty or just prom-king ready?

2013 People’s Choice Awards Menswear Round Up

People Choice Awards Mens

While the girls had the most glamorous fun at yesterday evening’s 2013 People’s Choice Awards hosted at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California, the guys brought some serious style—and hunk factor—to the red carpet, too.

Eddie Redmayne: The ‘Les Miserables; actor still proved he was worthy to be part of our Best Ensemble Cast of 2012 with his slimline tan suit, black vest and burgundy satin pocket square. Not only was it nice to see the British actor working a colored suit, he played up his cool-boy charm with his hands-in-the-pocket pose and a tie-less shirt with the top button open.

Matt Bomer: It was 50 shades of navy for ‘White Collar’s’ handsome star, as he went for a more traditional approach with his dark inky tuxedo paired up with a lighter tie and pocket square and a blue-and-white microprint shirt. The look actually worked perfectly for Matt, especially with his own set of icy baby blues.

Liam Hemsworth: In perhaps the boldest male moment of the night, Miley Cyrus’s fiancé took a risk with his Ermenegildo Zegna burgundy suit, which he matched back to a shiny black tie and button-down shirt and a glossy patent loafer. But his verve paid off, delivering a dapper red-carpet look that was both polished and style-forward. It helped that his jacket and pants were perfectly tailored.Read More…
