Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Zhang Ziyi in Armani

Giorgio Armani celebrated the opening of its new boutique on Canton Road, Isim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong on Thursday.

Zhang Ziyi wore a look from the Giorgio Armani Spring 2013 collection.

Her dynamic optical-illusion-print jacket, with two zippers starting at either side of the neckline and meeting further down the piece, is a lovely example of the innovative house of Giorgio Armani.

The actress opted not to wear the look with printed pants, as worn on the runway, opting for chic black silk shorts which provided a more interesting contrast.

Onyx statement earrings, a matching cocktail ring and sleek patent-leather Armani sandals accessorized her look.

Using the aquamarine colour as inspiration, she opted for a bright mani-pedi, with glossy nude lips and a ponytail providing the finishing touches.

Quvenzhane WallisGiorgioArmani

As the youngest Academy Award nominee ever, Quvenzhane Wallis walked the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars on Sunday in Los Angeles.

The nine-year-old wore a navy tulle Giorgio Armani design embellished with black beading. Her princess-style dress was accessorized with a floor-grazing shaw, a sparkly headband, and drop earrings.

One of her more stand out accents was her puppy purse, which was designed after her own dog.

Independent Spirit Awards

While many of the men in attendance at the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday opted for the usual dark suits, several of the actors celebrated the warm temperatures with light colours. The event was held in Santa Monica, California.

Bradley Cooper: Now here’s something you don’t see much of anymore. Bradley is wearing an Armani three-button, grey suit. He matched his suit with a tan waistcoat, a white shirt and distressed brown shoes. I like the colour combination in the look, but he doesn’t look very polished. His pants are too long and those shoes don’t do his suit justice.

Andy Samberg: As the host of the show Andy looked incredibly dapper in a perfectly tailored tuxedo that featured a green, shawl lapel jacket. Under the tux, Andy wore a white French cuff shirt, black studs and matching cuff links. He styled his it all with a black bow tie, a white pocket square, a white flower on his lapel and Bruno Magli shoes.

Matthew McConaughey: Nominated for his role as the lead in ‘Killer Joe,’ Matthew showed off his trim body in a more casual outfit by Dolce & Gabbana. He wore a charcoal coloured waistcoat with matching pants and a striped shirt. The highlight of Matthew’s getup was the pop of colour from his Tod’s blue shoes. He also accessorized with a stylish sunglasses and a great timepiece on his wrist.

Grammys Mens 1

While the Grammys are always a stage for wild fashion from the women’s side, the men typically tend to stay on the classic side – with a few exceptions, of course. The menswear always has a lot of diversity, ranging from dapper to disgusting. This year featured a lot of monochromatic looks and, unfortunately, a lot of bad tailoring.

Justin Timberlake: He’s back and he’s looking better than ever. Suiting up in collaboration with Tom Ford was clearly a wondrous decision. Justin made his return to the Grammys wearing an impeccably tailored Tom Ford black tuxedo with a hip twist on the jacket. His shawl collar was matched with a white-edged black pocket square and a droopy black bow tie. What made this outfit so perfect, though, was the way he was able to honour the old school while staying so modern. He kept his look classic with the black studs on his shirt, those amazing black-and-white loafers, and white dress socks. And he even wore a black cummerbund. He’s easily my best dressed of the Grammys.

Frank Ocean: Prior to performing at the Grammys wearing a custom yellow Band of Outsiders tuxedo, Frank wore a Dior Homme navy wool broadcloth Teddy jacket with silver buttons, paired with a navy wool and silk round neck sleeveless sweater, and navy wool broadcloth slim pants for the red carpet. Both looks showcased his cool, laid-back style.

Ed Sheeran: The red-haired English singer gave a grand performance on stage, but not so much on the red carpet. Ed wore a poorly tailored Burberry navy tuxedo with a two-toned notch lapel. The problem was that his tux fit terribly: the waist was not tailored; the sleeves and pants were too long; and those shoes did not work. I’m all for sneakers with a suit, and I like those particular sneakers, but the rest of his outfit is so bad that it distracts from his shoes. A little more effort next time, Ed.

Jai Courtney In Giorgio Armani & Bruce Willis In Dior Homme - 'A Good Day to Die Hard' London Premiere

The on-screen father and son duo was at it again, this time at the London premiere of ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ on cold and wet Thursday evening. And once again Jai Courtney proved he can dress with the best. Bruce, on the other hand, decided to go casual.

Jai Courtney: To follow up from his amazing Ermenegildo Zegna blue suit last week, Jai switched to a Giorgio Armani grey three-piece suit. He looked well put together with his notch lapel jacket, bold-buttoned waistcoat, and black shoes. The classic white pocket square and burgundy tie gave the outfit more pop, in a good way.

Bruce Willis: For the ‘Die Hard’ dedication event, Bruce wore a poorly tailored Dior Homme suit with a skinny tie. For this premiere he stuck with Dior Homme, lost the tie, and wore pants that fit him much better. Sometimes less is more. Bruce dressed down, sporting a light gray checkered shirt under his black notch lapel jacket, and looked great doing so.

Their action flick, which is set in Russia, will be released in theaters on Valentine’s Day.

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

Being a night owl, it can often take me a while to get up in the morning, so I peruse Getty Images from my iPad to give me inspiration to get up.

You can imagine that I jumped up like my butt was on fire when I saw Cate Blanchett on the red carpet for the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards held at The Star in Sydney, Australia this evening.

It has been a while since she graced the red carpet wearing Armani Privé, so I’m ecstatic to see her wearing a look from the Spring 2009 collection, which I have always noted was made for Cate.

Her fiery red Asian-inspired bold-shoulder gown, covered in shimmering red square lacquer sequins with a black trim, was styled with some pretty uninspiring footwear.

Considering this look slams every look from the SAG Awards, she gets a free pass.

Instead of the black tasselled detail at the waist, Cate opted for black drop earrings to spice up her hawt look.

Flawless makeup, which gave her a rosy glow, and a bun with side-swept bangs provided the finishing touches.

Needless to say, even with those shoes, this look will be added to my BDOTY list.

Golden Globes Men 1The girls have been feted for their fashionable entrances and exits at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. But there were plenty of handsome guys on the red carpet, too. That said, most of the men played it safe, taking a rather traditional approach with tuxes, all tied up with a bow (tie).

Ben Affleck: Ben was definitely the evening’s Golden boy, as he snagged the Best Director and Best Picture win for ‘Argo’—and he dressed for his double victory. His midnight blue peak lapel tuxedo from Gucci was a handsome three-piece affair, especially with the matching satin bow tie. The blue spin on the traditional tux won me over. Even his perfectly groomed facial hair wasn’t bothersome; it only added a sense of refined depth to the look.

Bradley Cooper: The Best Actor nominee for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ went green for the red carpet with his well-tailored, black Tom Ford two-piece tux, a part of the sustainable Green Carpet Challenge. A pert bow tie topped off the dapper look.

Robert Pattinson:  This ‘Twilight’ heartthrob is all grown up. The British actor impressed with his slim Gucci black peak lapel ‘Signoria’ tuxedo with white dress shirt and black satin tie, matched to black leather lace-ups. It was the picture of formality, and Robert even exchanged his standard scruffiness for a clean-shaven look for the occasion.
