Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Our final menswear roundup of the week serves up three savvy styles.

Javier Bardem: The actor joined co-star Jennifer Lawrence for the ‘mother!’ New York premiere looking very dapper in his Gucci green Heritage suit, proving that simple and classic is often best.

Future: The rapper donned a full Dior Homme look which was smart while oozing contemporary flair. Methinks the turtleneck only served to show off the bling.

Zayn Malik: The singer usually gives us a contemporary or fashion-forward look, but for the US Weekly Most Stylish New Yorkers event he demonstrated his love for a time-honored, classic Tom Ford three-piece suit.

Mary J. Blige In Gucci – ‘Mudbound’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Mary J. Blige hit the red carpet at the ‘Mudbound’ Toronto Film Festival premiere on Tuesday (September 12).

As one who normally prefers solid, sexier looks, I was surprised to hear the singer was in Gucci, but understood when I saw her in this sharp-shouldered Fall 2017 dress.

Eschewing the pink tights and hat, Mary accessorized with statement rings and Chanel shoes detailed with bows.

She made it her own, but I would have liked to see the cascade of blonde hair loosely tied back to better show off the dress’s ruffled front.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men didn’t take a break this weekend either, with the 2017 Toronto Film Festival summoning many of them to the red carpet—plus a few other occasions.

Bill Skarsgard: At the ‘It’ Stockholm premiere, Bill wore a tweedy, printed Bottega Veneta suit that he enhanced with the deep navy dress shirt. I just wish he had buttoned the top button of his jacket.

Alan Cumming: At the ‘Battle of the Sexes’ TIFF premiere on Sunday (September 10), Alan showed off his quirky style in a Stella McCartney double-breasted pinstriped suit. The tapered pants didn’t really do the look any favours, and I generally have the same reaction to men’s platform shoes as I do to women’s—being.

Aubrey Drake Graham: At ‘The Carter Effect’ TIFF premiere on Saturday (September 9), the entertainer dressed up in a Prada ensemble that was emboldened by its aubergine palette.

Keira Knightley In Gucci – The 13th Annual BGC Charity Day

Representing the SMA Trust, Keira Knightley attended the BGC Charity Day today (September 11) in London.

The event honours those in the financial services who lost their lives at the World Trade Centre on September 11. All the money raised goes towards dozens of charities including the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund which helps support victims of terrorism and natural disasters.

We’ve known Keira as a Chanel and Valentino girl for so long, but I feel the historical references and vintage, ladylike silhouettes created by Alessandro Michele for Gucci suit her to a tee.

Gucci’s atypical choice of a black base for this floral print is part of what makes the luscious colours of this design truly pop, so barely teased tresses and makeup allow the dress to truly shine.

Tabitha Simmons ‘Julieta’ studded platform sandals rounded out her look.

BoF 500 Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Selena Gomez and Jared Leto weren’t the only two holding court at the BoF 500 Gala on Saturday (September 9) in New York City. Here, a look at the other guests in attendance.

Doutzen Kroes: The model showed off her form in a ruched and gathered Jason Wu Spring 2018 drawstring dress that offered a new twist on the LBD.

Lewis Hamilton: If Lewis’s confetti pants didn’t spell party, I don’t know what does. This Dior Homme look is fashion-forward without being overcooked or try-hard. Jared Leto may want to take notes.

Taylor Hill: I’m afraid this Julien Macdonald Fall 2017 metallic mini came across as a bit dated, but it was more the crimped hair and nude sandals that killed the vibe.

Jared Leto In Gucci – BoF 500 Gala

Another day, another over-the-top pattern (or five) for Jared Leto, as he brought his zany sartorial show to the BoF 500 Gala on Saturday (September 9) in New York City, where Selena Gomez was also in attendance.

This ensemble marks the third Gucci Fall 2017 look he’s worn in practically as many days, with equally loud choices at the GQ Men of the Year Awards and Harpers BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld.’

Maybe I’m building up a tolerance to his wacky plaids and graphic prints, but this third retro-facing look struck me as a bit less comical than his prior two overloaded style antics.

Regardless, if you’re going to flaunt such a bold statement, at least make sure the pants are properly tailored. The silliest part of this look was the pants dragging the ground.
