Best Dressed Of The Week – Rachel McAdams In Zuhair Murad Couture, Zoe Saldana In Valentino, Chris Hemsworth In Dolce & Gabbana & Chadwick Boseman In Giorgio Armani

BDOTW Women 28 July

Rachel McAdams was your runaway winner this week for her gorgeous Zuhair Murad Couture cocktail dress worn to the ‘A Most Wanted Man’ premiere.

You not only loved how beautiful she looked, but also the change in direction.

My favourite was Zoe Saldana. After a so-so showing at Cannes, this look sees her back to her best.

The Valentino gown she wore to the London ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ premiere was soft, pretty and feminine, which was also a change in pace from the directional look she donned to the LA premiere.

When it came to the guys, Chris Hemsworth was your clear winner, looking sharp in his Dolce & Gabbana outfit. I was seduced by the cool-blue Armani suit worn by ‘Get On Up’ actor Chadwick Boseman. Styling and fit were very much on point.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men222

There were plenty of fellas taking to the red carpet last night (July 21). Here is a quick roundup.

Daniel Radcliffe: The British actor attended ‘The F Word’ premiere held at Scotiabank Theatre in Toronto, Canada. He looked as sharp as ever, donning a blue-black suit from Saint Laurent, keeping the mood fairly relaxed by opting to go sans tie. Christian Louboutin ‘Trepeter’ flats rounded out his sleek look.

Chris Pratt: Joining his lovely wife Anna Faris and Zoe Saldana at the ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ LA premiere, Chris showed off his new sculptured body wearing a SAND Copenhagen grey suit. Styled with a light-pink shirt, navy textured tie, polka-dot pocket square and Chopard Mille Miglia rose-gold timepiece, the actor has never looked better.

Chadwick Boseman: The handsome actor wore a Giorgio Armani Made to Measure dark cobalt blue and burgundy glen plaid two-button notch lapel suit with a pale lavender shirt, navy and burgundy neck tie and a burgundy pocket square to the premiere of ‘Get On Up’ in New York City. This look made me swoon; from the colour combo to the impeccably tailored fit.

Menswear 26 June

Here is a quick look at what some of the guys were wearing on the red carpet yesterday.

Ansel Elgort: The young actor attended the Valentino show as part of Paris Fashion Week Menswear Spring 2015 in France. Wearing a Spring 2014 navy suit with epaulettes to give it a military feel, the look was styled with a white shirt and brown Valentino loafers. He is giving a very strong Jude Law vibe here.

Jay Z: The rapper, who joined his Atelier-Versace-clad wife on their joint ‘On The Run’ tour yesterday evening, wore a custom Rodarte black, charcoal and white ’99 Problems’ jersey with black cargo pants and a lot of bling.

Mark Wahlberg: The ‘Transformers’ actor joined his co-stars Nicola Peltz and Li Bingbing on the red carpet for the New York premiere last night wearing another Giorgio Armani suit, which fared much better, fit-wise, than his last outing.

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Chris Pine: The new face of the bestselling fragrance Armani Code was a front row guest at Giorgio Armani’s Spring 2015 menswear show during Milan Fashion week on Tuesday (June 24). The handsome actor was of course wearing a Giorgio Armani suit. The finely textured navy notched-lapel suit was styled with a crisp white unbuttoned shirt with contrasting blue loafers. The only thing to improve this look, in my eyes, would be just a bit of product in his hair, or a haircut.

Zach Braff: The actor joined co-star Ashley Greene on the red carpet for the ‘Wish I Was Here’ LA premiere. He wore a Dior Homme grey wool micro-check slim lapel three-piece suit, burgundy cotton shirt, navy silk tie and black calfskin leather derbies. I’m not loving the colour combination here. I would start with losing the fall-hued shirt and tie in favour of lighter shades.

Jim Parsons: Opting for colour which wasn’t so Fall-like, the best thing about this look for me was Jim’s tie.

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Matthew McConaughey: The actor is still on a hot streak from awards season as he picked up Best Actor in a Drama Series for ‘True Detective’ at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards. Keeping it simple and classic, the actor wore an Ermenegildo Zegna Couture burgundy herringbone, two-button, notch-lapel suit with a bow tie. His double monk-strap shoes don’t hide the fact that his trousers are just a tad too long.

Mark Wahlberg: The actor joined Li Bingbing and Nicola Peltz on the red carpet for the ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Hong Kong premiere wearing an Armani suit. I love the light grey colour with the lighter blue tie, but the fit is way off for me. It feels at least a size too big.

Josh Dallas: The ‘Once Upon A Time’ actor joined Matthew at the Critics’ Choice Awards yesterday evening. Keeping it all black and not opting for a tie, the actor wore a Z Zegna shawl-collar suit with a grosgrain lapel and buttoned-up shirt.

Menswear Weekend Roundup

Menswear Weekend Roundup

The past few days were packed with a range of menswear looks, heavy on the formal tux angle with a few more colourful options thrown in for good measure. Here, a look at the weekend’s handsome set of guys.

Zachary Quinto: A presenter at the 68th annual Tony Awards, the actor dressed for the occasion in a Thom Sweeney three-piece, black wool tuxedo, paired with a white cotton dress shirt and black silk bow tie. David Yurman black onyx shirt studs pulled the look together with an added note of polish.

Djimon Hounsou: Bringing a breath of fresh blue to the red carpet of the ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ Los Angeles premiere, Djimon wore his beautifully hued Calvin Klein Collections suit with equally well-styled accessories, including an incredible pair of navy Christian Louboutin loafers, Martin Katz cufflinks, and a Montblanc timepiece.

Daniel Radcliffe
: In attendance at the Tony Awards supporting his play, ‘The Cripple of Inishmaan,’ Daniel was dapper in an Ermenegildo Zegna Made-to-Measure one-button, satin peak-lapel tuxedo in midnight navy—a great departure from the traditional black colour. A matching bow tie, white dress shirt, and KG Kurt Geiger ‘Anton’ shoes finished the look.
