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…

Josh Brolin In Ermenegildo Zegna – ‘Gangster Squad’ LA Premiere

Josh Brolin In Ermenegildo Zegna - ‘Gangster Squad’ LA Premiere

Josh Brolin joined Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling on the red carpet at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre for the premiere of their latest movie, ‘Gangster Squad’.

The actor selected an Ermenegildo Zegna look.

His burgundy two-button, notch-lapel suit was styled with a lavender shirt, purple printed tie and brown lace-up shoes.

I love the colour combination, but those pants are killing the look for me. Both the creases and the length are bothersome.

In saying that he made more of an effort than Sean Penn.

A Week In Gerard Butler’s Closet

It’s been a very busy week for Gerard Butler.

On Tuesday he attended the press conference ahead of the Nobel Peace Prize Concert at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel in Oslo, Norway.

Looking very handsome in a navy two-button Ermenegildo Zegna suit, he styled the look with a light-blue shirt and navy tie with a grey and yellow stripe.

For the concert, which she shared hosting duties with Sarah Jessica Parker, the actor wore another Ermenegildo Zegna suit. On this occasion he opted for a more sombre charcoal two-button peak lapel suit with a white shirt and light-grey tie.

Yesterday evening he was in London attending the ‘Playing for Keeps’ premiere held at the Apollo Piccadilly Circus.

Dressed head-to-toe in Ferragamo, Gerard opted for a maroon tie for a pop of colour against his all grey look.

The press conference look was my favourite of the three mostly because of the colour. Which look did you prefer?

Seth Rogen In Ermenegildo Zegna – ‘The Guilt Trip’ LA Premiere

Funny man Seth Rogen joined Barbara Streisand on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘The Guilt Trip’, which took place at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California last night.

Both dressed in black; he wore a three-piece suit (my favourite kind) by Ermenegildo Zegna.

I’m glad he opted for a gingham shirt and dotted tie with his peaked-lapel suit; otherwise, this look could’ve been quite formulaic.
