Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men have been making the rounds over the past few days, with the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards, premieres, and more all providing reason for them to hit the red carpet.

Matt Bomer: An army-green suit is not one we see on the daily. So, this Todd Snyder ensemble at the CFDA Fashion Awards really caught my eye—especially with the contrasting, tuxedo racing stripes down the side. It was a clever juxtaposition of formal-wear with a sportier vibe in the cropped pants and socks-less loafers. But, I do wish the pants had been pressed.

Tom Cruise: Tom joined Sofia Boutella and Annabelle Wallis for the premiere of ‘The Mummy’ in Mexico City, where he wore an Ermenegildo Zegna Made to Measure three-piece suit. Sure, he looked handsome. But, with a Made to Measure suit, I would have expected a more precise, polished fit as the fabric seemed to crease and pull at various places here.

Donald Glover: Donald was at the Atlanta For Your Consideration screening in New York City, where he wore a Gucci ‘Donald Duck’ cardigan for our consideration. I actually found myself liking the playful, cartoonish spirit. I would have opted for black pants or denim jeans as opposed to these dark navy trousers as they seemed to be the odd man out.

Gucci Cruise 2018 Front Row

The front row at the Gucci Cruise 2018 fashion show which took lace a the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy yesterday (May 29) was filled with famous faces, and some incredibly fashion-forward outfits.

Kirsten Dunst: Fresh from her successful Cannes adventure, the actress was still in the mood to embrace colour wearing a Gucci Spring 2017 two-piece, with the skirt being the standout feature. We don’t often see Kirsten rock bold patterns, so this added a fun element to her look.

Donald Glover: The ‘Atlanta’ star is a man of many talents; now he can add snappy dresser to the list too. You couldn’t help but notice him as his outfit was the perfect combination of comfort and style. There is nothing better than a bold floral shirt on a fella, especially when tempered with a cool navy shorts and white leather Gucci ‘Ace’ sneakers. However, it’s that wide-brimmed hat that really sells this look.

Dakota Johnson: Proving that she is definitely ready for spring, Datoka’s black halterneck Gucci Fall 2017 dress with bright pink patterns was the epitome of laid-back but chic. I love how the accessories brightened the look further.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Not only have the men been making the rounds on the red carpet at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival over the last few days, some have also not been in France whilst attending to other premieres and events.

Chris Pine: At the ‘Wonder Woman’ LA premiere, Chris dressed to impress in a hyper-traditional Giorgio Armani Made to Measure three-piece suit complete with a pocket watch chain.

Harry Styles: With a distinct nod to retro style, Harry had a throwback moment in a custom Gucci embroidered suit prior to his performance at The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood. I actually love the casual ’70s flair of the look.

Will Smith
: Sleekly buttoned up, Will did the double-breasted suit thing in top form at the ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes premiere.

Yara Shahidi In Gucci – Fossil Firsts Breakfast

When actress Yara Shahidi attended the Fossil Firsts Breakfast in New York City on Wednesday (May 10), she had two clear goals: Make a statement, but remain comfortable. And we think it’s safe to say she achieved both.

The youthful design, a bright red Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 tracksuit, isn’t just any old tracksuit.

What makes it such a standout piece is the fact that Gucci has paid close attention to the detailing: ruffled sleeves, embroidered flowers on the neckline and stripes along the sides of the trousers — making this the perfect combination of style and comfort, and proof that athleisure can look polished.

I love that Yara kept the overall feel of the look casual, choosing to accessorize with only a killer pair of studded heels.

Salma Hayek In Gucci – Kering Talks Women In Motion

Salma Hayek sported another perplexing outfit and wig choice when attending Kering Talks Women In Motion during Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 23).

Her Gucci Fall 2017 dress almost seem too prim for Salma, yet the oversized pearl and crystallized bow keep me interested and prevent me from disliking the frock.

Seemingly inspired by the 1940’s, I would say the only thing missing from this look are glasses, then, Salma would be ready to take up her position as the Cannes librarian.

Monica Bellucci In Gucci – Cannes 70th Anniversary Dinner

As you know I wasn’t excited about Monica Bellucci’s Chanel red carpet look, but I was blow away by the Gucci gown she wore to the Cannes Film Festival 70th anniversary dinner last night (May 23).

That’s mostly because I don’t ever recall seeing Monica opt for so much detail.

Her gown which is emboldened with eye-catching butterfly and insect embroideries and rainbow sequin stripes is a huge break from the norm; and while I’m thoroughly intrigued, I do wish she done something different with her hair.

Not only because it would’ve made for a refreshing change, but also to show off that butterfly detail on the neckline.

The Gucci clutch might be too big for some peoples taste, but I think it ties the look nicely together.
