MTV Video Music Awards Menswear Roundup

MTV Video Music Awards Menswear Roundup

Lest you think last night’s 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA were all about the ladies, a few men sauntered out their style profiles too at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

Nick Jonas: The singer represented for the former Jonas Brothers, looking sharp in a lively Vivienne Westwood MAN navy windowpane waistcoat jacket and vest. Not taking the outfit too seriously, he wore slouchy black denim and black boots which offset the more buttoned-up effect of that riff on a period jacket.

Common: Also in Vivienne Westwood MAN, the rapper brought plenty of attitude to the evening with his brown sweater, complete with leather-look sleeves, black jeans and a pair of statement shades. He wouldn’t have been out of place on the ‘Star Trek’ set.

Sam Smith: Before taking to the VMAs stage for a soulful rendition of ‘Stay With Me,’ Sam was on the red carpet. His Gucci navy notch-lapel, two-button Signoria three-piece suit, worn tie-less with a white evening shirt and brown leather monk strap shoes, may not be the most memorable, but his performance most certainly was.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Gina Rodriguez In LaQuan Smith, Nina Dobrev In Vionnet, Robert Pattinson & Channing Tatum In Gucci

BDOTW 18 Aug

Gina Rodriguez was your best dressed this week wearing a navy-blue LaQuan Smith dress. No doubt you were enamoured not only with the dress, but also the styling of this look.

My vote went to Nina Dobrev in Vionnet, with Elle Fanning, Odeya Rush and Taylor Swift – who coincidentally all wore red this week – all running closely for joint second place.

Nina was my eventual winner, because I love the sweet sassiness of her look; the mix of colour and those Kurt Geiger pink pumps pretty much sealed the win.

When it came to the guys, Robert Pattinson in his classic Gucci suit was your favourite, whereas I opted for the charming all-grey Gucci suit worn by Channing Tatum.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 15 August

Gents have been scrubbing up nicely on the red carpet this week. Here is a quick roundup.

James Marsden: The actor was back and looking sharper than ever, attending the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet wearing a Z Zegna grey two-button notched-lapel suit styled with tan Givenchy laceups. I’m missing a tie thanks to the charming navy print pocket square.

Channing Tatum: The actor also opted for some shades of grey, donning a Gucci windowpane two-button notched-lapel suit styled with a white dress shirt and steel-grey tie, with black laceups rounding out his dapper look.

Robert Pattinson: Having disappointed many of you with his last look, it appears Rob made a conscious effort on this occasion, looking very handsome, in his usual slightly dishevelled way, donning a classic black Gucci suit. I love the shimmering black tie and the maroon laceups for two out-of-the-box touches.

Mel B In Gucci – ‘America’s Got Talent’ Post Show Red Carpet

Mel B In Gucci - 'America's Got Talent' Post Show Red Carpet

Mel B attended the ‘America’s Got Talent’ post-show red carpet held at the Radio City Music Hall on Wednesday (August 13) in New York City.

Perhaps giving a nod to her Spice Girl persona, Scary Spice, the singer donned a leopard-print frock by Gucci.

The ultra-mini dress, trimmed with leather and featuring a high neck, was styled with black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and gold jewels.

So far I sense that you haven’t really liked many of Mel’s red carpet looks; the fit and sizing has been the biggest issue, though I would imagine the length would be the off-putting factor here.

Robert Pattinson In Gucci – ‘The Rover’ Photocall & Screening

Robert Pattinson In Gucci - 'The Rover' Photocall & Screening

Robert Pattinson attended ‘The Rover’ photocall prior to the screening with a Q & A session held at the BFI Southbank on Wednesday (August 6) in London, England.

The face of Dior Homme fragrance, Robert still favours Gucci for his red carpet appearances, on this occasion donning a bordeaux suede Gucci bomber jacket and completing his casual look with a white tee, a partially unbuttoned steel-blue shirt and black jeans – in short, his usual slightly dishevelled but lovable self.

Black Adidas Originals ‘Nizza’ canvas sneakers completed his look.
