Karolina Kurkova In Giorgio Armani & Blumarine – Tribeca Film Festival

Karolina Kurkova In Giorgio Armani & Blumarine - Tribeca Film Festival

The usually colourful Karolina Kurkova sported not only two all-black looks this week, but two menswear-inspired looks.

I’m noticing a trend for menswear-inspired looks, with both Carey Mulligan and Rebecca Hall opting to take this route this week.

Vanity Fair Tribeca Film Festival Opening Night Party: On Tuesday, the model donned an Armani look which featured a cropped waist-baring tuxedo jacket and oversized palazzo pants. As we’ve seen in the past, the model rounded off her menswear-inspired look with a severe centre-parted bun and red lippie. The only thing putting me off this look are the pants with an elasticated waist. They really pull down the look.

‘For The Love Of Cinema’ Tribeca Film Festival Dinner: On this occasion, she showed off her slender pins wearing a Blumarine Fall 2013 tuxedo dress. Opting for a more feminine approach, Karolina’s notch-lapel tuxedo jacket was paired with a tulip-shaped satin uber-mini skirt decorated with black and silver embellishments. Free-flowing tresses, smoky eyes, silver jewels and a box clutch completed her look.

I love the flirty, feminine take on menswear with her Blumarine look. Of the two, I would put this one up for BDOTW.
Would this be your choice?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Olga Kurylenko In Elie Saab Couture & Marchesa, Ryan Gosling In Worn by & Tom Cruise In Giorgio Armani

Best Dressed Of The Week - Olga Kurylenko In Elie Saab Couture & Marchesa

Olga Kurylenko was competing with herself for BDOTW this week.

It was a very close race between her Elie Saab Couture cocktail dress and her Marchesa gown; eventfully you picked her Elie Saab frock.

I was totally memorized by her Marchesa gown so that an easy choice for me.

Best Dressed Of The Week - Ryan Gosling In Worn by & Tom Cruise In Girogio Armani

I did chuckle when I saw that Ryan Gosling won your best-dressed male wearing a Worn By ‘Home Alone’ tee, beating out several dapper guys in slick suits.

My vote went to Tom Cruise in Giorgio Armani. You can’t beat a guy looking handsome in a three-piece suit.

Tom Cruise In Girogio Armani - 'Oblivion' London Premiere

Tom Cruise joined his co-star Olga Kurylenko, who stole the spotlight from her more famous co-star, on the red carpet at the BFI IMAX in London this evening for the ‘Oblivion’ premiere this evening.

The actor, who plays Jack Harper in the science fiction movie, wore a Giorgio Armani Made to Measure charcoal grey three-piece suit.

His sleek suit was styled with a grey shirt and copper coloured neck tie.

Both actors are looking pretty sharp for people who have been on a world-wind non-stop promo tour.

Tinie Tempah and Idris Elba – Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards

Tinie Tempah and Idris Elba - Prince's Trust Celebrate Success Awards

Tinie Tempah and Idris Elba attended the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards held at Odeon Leicester Square in London yesterday evening sporting ‘you da man’, ‘no, you da man’ poses on the red carpet.

Tinie Tempah: Tinie by name and by pant length. The rapper, who’s always front row during fashion week, opted to wear a charcoal-grey Dolce & Gabbana blazer with black ankle-swing pants. Cropped pants are very much part of his signature look, as are his black loafers. A crisp white shirt, a quirky polka-dotted bow tie and a red Prince’s Trust pin completed his look.

Idris Elba: The actor opted for a more classic look, donning a dark-grey Armani suit with a white dress shirt. The tie stops a bit short but I can’t fault how handsome he looks in his suit, which he paired with dark-green shoes and a red pin.

Zhang Ziyi In Giorgio Armani – Hong Kong Boutique Opening

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.

Independent Spirit Awards Menswear Round Up

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.

2013 Grammy Awards Menswear Round Up

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

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.
