2014 Met Gala Menswear Roundup

Met Gala Men 1The dress code at the 2014 Met Ball, themed ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ was “white tie,” which meant the guys were on their best glam behavior—at least most of them. Tuxes were spotted at every turn among the handsome hunks on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5). It takes a lot of sartorial strength to stand up to the rush of bustling, bold gowns that punctuate the evening, but let’s hear it for the men who made it work.

David Beckham: This hot topic was hotter than ever in a crisp, cool Ralph Lauren Black Label white shawl collar tuxedo jacket, black bow tie and black tuxedo pant. This is the way to rock formal wear, without a hit of fussiness. Swooning yet?

Douglas Booth
: The British actor took a regally traditional route, but put a refreshingly modern spin on his head-to-toe Burberry outing. He was positively dashing in a black tailcoat and dress trousers, worn with a white waistcoat, wing collar bib-front shirt, white bow tie and black loafers.

Andrew Garfield
: “The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ star looked sharp in silver, dressed in a Band of Outsiders metallic blazer with contrasting black shawl collar, paired with a white shirt, black bow tie and black tuxedo trousers. I love the touch of metal here.

Erykah Badu In Givenchy Couture - 2014 Met Gala

Erykah Badu attended the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) as the guest of Riccardo Tisci.

Wearing a head-to-toe custom Givenchy Couture outfit, she was certainly marching to the beat of her own drum showcasing her sartorial style.

The look featured a black jumpsuit worn with a white satin coat embroidered with crystals which matched her silk headscarf and wool hat.

Givenchy Couture silver earrings and black Givenchy leather sandals completed her look.

This is how you make an impact and stand out on a red carpet with a sea of 5ft long trains.

I wonder if that hat will catch on?

Beyonce Knowles In Givenchy Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Beyonce Knowles In Givenchy Couture - 2014 Met Gala

Beyoncé turns heads on the red carpet of the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

She looks fierce in a black beaded Givenchy Couture number with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

There is no doubt that Queen B always looks fabulous, and this is no exception. She stood out in this seriously sexy number and adds a unique touch with the veil.

The detail on this dress is simply captivating and so is her bold burgundy lip, accented by a subtle gold shimmer around her eyes.

Beyoncé can do no wrong in my opinion. She certainly sets herself apart from the crowd, but still is on target for the theme and nature of the gala. What do you think?

Naomi Watts In Givenchy Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Naomi Watts strutted down the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Departing from her usual old Hollywood glamour, the ‘Diana’ star surprised us with a Givenchy Couture sheer gown. The intricate embroidery fading from white to black in the front, the open back, and the sheer black skirt make this look even more unique.

Adding to the sophistication, Namoi wore beaded earrings with her hair pulled back and natural fresh-face makeup.

While this was the right occasion to take her love for fashion to the next step, I kind of missed the old-school elegance mixed with modern chic, she usually gives us.

Also, is anyone else having a ‘Black Swan’ déjà vu or is it just me?

America Ferrera In Givenchy – 29th Annual Lucille Lortel Awards

America Ferrera In Givenchy - 29th Annual Lucille Lortel Awards

America Ferrera attended the 29th Annual Lucille Lortel Awards held at NYU Skirball Center on Sunday (May 4) in New York City.

As you know, the actress loves to wear black and I am always campaigning for her to wear more colour. This look is somewhat of a compromise.

On the one hand she is wearing her favourite colour, black, but her Givenchy Resort 2014 fitted frock is also freckled with colourful polka dots.

Factor in the yellow belt, yellow Jimmy Choo pumps and colourful Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch and you find me in total lust with this look from head to toe. I would wear this in a nanosecond.

EF Collection jewels, glossy lips and swept-back tresses completed this I-want-it-right-now look.
