2015 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscar men

The men were out in force at the 2015 Oscars and the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where there was plenty of handsome inspiration to go around from a fine group of fellows.

Jared Leto: Getting the evening started on a non-traditional note, the actor and musician was every bit the unorthodox Academy Awards dresser in his baby-blue Givenchy tux, accented by a white bowtie and white lug sole shoes. He let his hair down literally and made no excuses for it, saying that the Oscars was his going-away party for his locks. I wonder if the beard was also included in that party. While no one could pull this off like Jared, between the mane and the male pastels, this was verging on almost too much too handle.

Chris Pine: A stark contrast to Jared, Chris went for the all-out traditionally classic route and suited up in a Giorgio Armani black double-breasted peak-lapel tuxedo. It was impeccable and goes to show what transformative power a well-tailored tux can have.

David Oyelowo: Looking as if he was inspired by the red carpet itself, the ‘Selma’ actor dressed to impress in a crimson Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo word with #TackleEbola handcrafted pin by Jason of Beverly Hills. He does a great job pulling off this colour, yet I’m not completely sold on the satiny look of the vest and bowtie underneath.

Jessica Chastain In Givenchy Couture – 2015 Oscars

Jessica Chastain In Givenchy - 2015 Oscars

Jessica Chastain walked red carpet on Sunday (February 22) at the 2015 Oscars, hosted at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

Clad in Givenchy, the ‘Interstellar’ star and presenter for the evening looked radiant in gem-toned navy.

The hourglass figure-hugging gown was a combination of elegance and sex appeal with a thigh-high slit and modest train. The sparkly bodice was softened with a contrasting sweeping sash of fabric.

Her fiery locks were glossy and straight and makeup neutral with a cat eye, both which allowed her gown to take center stage.

Rosamund Pike In Givenchy Couture – 2015 Oscars

Rosamund Pike In Givenchy - 2015 Oscars

Rosamund Pike was another lady in red at the 2015 Oscars, hosted at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 22) in Hollywood, California.

I was delighted to see that the ‘Gone Girl’ Best Actress nominee continued her rise back to the top that we first saw at Friday’s Women in Film pre-Oscar party.

This vivacious crimson Givenchy Couture number created a visual spark on the red carpet with its dimensional, intricate embroidery sexily cinched in with a visible corset.

A front slit completed the gown’s sultry hourglass appeal and showed off her matching sandals.

Rosamund finished the sassy-elegant look in minimal fashion—dainty Lorraine Schwartz earrings, alongside a swept-back bun and barely-there rose-tinged makeup were all she needed.

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – ‘Cinderella’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy - 'Cinderella' Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Cate Blanchett captivated during both the ‘Cinderella’ photocall and premiere hosted at the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany on Friday (February 13).

Photocall: At the Grand Hyatt Hotel, the actress who plays the Evil Stepmother in the film couldn’t have looked more chic in a Givenchy Pre-Fall 2015 ensemble. The relaxed tailoring of the loose white blouse melded perfectly with the more structured silhouette of the belted skirt and side ruffle detail. The semi-visible balconette bra underneath only added another layer of allure to the look, which she finished with a sophisticated side-parted bun and black Givenchy ‘Matilda’ sandals.

Premiere: Cutting a wickedly good profile, Cate let her hair down for the red carpet at Berlinale Palace and stunned in a bold Givenchy Pre-Fall 2015 metallic gown, slightly modified from the lookbook version. She played her own version of the game of Tetris in the gleaming dress. The pixel-inspired block design was graphic, geometric and glorious, and she balanced it perfectly with Givenchy ‘Clara’ sandals and tousled blonde waves.

An impressive double fashion feature—Queen Cate has done it again.

Madonna In Givenchy – 2015 Grammy Awards

Madonna In Givenchy - 2015 Grammy Awards_

Madonna may have been among the earlier arrivals for the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8), but she certainly was not to be missed as she staked her sartorial claim on the red carpet at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

It’s been some time since we’ve seen the music icon on the scene, and she has come back with a bang. The icon who last year turned heads at the 2014 Grammys with a mannish suit, fedora, and a gold grill, went in an opposite yet no less arresting direction this year.

Her burlesque-inspired Givenchy ensemble this evening sees her returning to her more old-school Madge days. With this look, she could walk straight into the cabaret and hit the stage without making so much as a slight costume change.

The lace-encrusted, ribbon-accented, corseted bodysuit made use of every manageable bit of embellishment, even if it did prove just a teensy bit tight for those twins.

To accompany the theatrical piece, she left no accessory behind—from the fingerless arm gloves to the black fishnets and over-the-knee boots. Of course, her netted terrero-inspired hat, which sat atop retro platinum pin curls and a sultry cat-eye, was the icing on this dramatic layered cake of a look.

Was this leather-and-lace overload both over-the-top and oozing of extravagance? Yes. But this is Madonna and this is the Grammys. And this is how to get the night started on a memorable note.

Julia Roberts In Givenchy – 2015 SAG Awards

Julia Roberts In Givenchy - 2015 SAG Awards

Julia Roberts attended the 2015 SAG Awards held on Sunday evening (January 25) at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

The actress, nominated for ‘The Normal Heart’, wore a tuxedo-inspired black jumpsuit from Givenchy making it the second year in a row she has worn a jumpsuit to the SAG Awards. She accessorized with Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Considering Julia was recently named the face of Givenchy, I was hoping she would pull out all of the stops. The jumpsuit fits her fairly well. However, the satin detail at the hips feel poorly placed and it’s just generally a bit meh.

I never get tired of that incredible hair and thousand-watt smile but I want to see Julia have a major fashion moment this season.
