Cannes Film Festival Menswear Roundup

Cannes Film Festival Menswear Roundup
It was hard to remove my gaze from the breathtaking gowns at on the first day, Wednesday (May 13), of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, but a handful of menswear looks were worthy of mention.

Xavier Dolan: The French-Canadian actor cut a striking profile in his blue Louis Vuitton double-breasted suit paired with a black-and-white chequered sweater. It’s a perfect look for the Jury photocall, as it projects a coolly suave edge without even trying. You may remember that the suit was previously worn by Michiel Huisman.

John Legend: Attending the opening ceremony and premiere of ‘La Tete Haute,’ the singer couldn’t have looked more handsome in his traditional black Gucci tuxedo, making a solid argument for the power of a classic tux worn in superior fashion.

Jake Gyllenhaal: The actor was also at the opening ceremony and premiere and likewise catching plenty of stares for being well-dressed in a dark Tom Ford tuxedo and bow tie, even if I also like to see him in blues to bring out his steely stare.

Lupita Nyong’o In Gucci – ‘La Tete Haute’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Lupita Nyongo In Gucci - ‘La Tete Haute’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Lupita Nyong’o made her Cannes Film Festival debut for the opening ceremony and premiere of ‘La Tete Haute’ (‘Standing Tall’) on Wednesday (May 13) in Cannes, France.

The actress has long had a love affair with colour, and I’m delighted that that trend continued tonight with this Gucci one-of-a kind jade-green chiffon plisse gown with cape detail, enhanced with embroidered crystals and pink and blush silk flowers.

I’m swept away by the elegance, the soft femininity and of course that magenta lip.

She completed her look with green satin heels and an antique gold Gucci hair accessory.

Will she be the new Queen of Cannes?

Models @ The 2015 Met Gala

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

The models also had their moment at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), some strutting to the beat of the theme better than others.

Karen Elson: One of the most extravagantly attired models, Karen truly embraced the ‘costume’ in the Costume Institute Benefit Gala in her Dolce & Gabbana ballgown spectacle featuring an ornately embellished and gilded bodice with matching cuffs, and an explosion of red tulle. Her elaborate gold headpiece also gave Sarah Jessica Parker’s own topper a bit of crown competition. This was the Chinese princess moment of the night.

‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ London Premiere Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

‘The Avengers Age Of Ultron’ London Premiere Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

A trio of handsome counterparts joined Scarlett Johansson and Elizabeth Olsen for ‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ premiere at Westfield on Tuesday (April 21) in London, England.

Chris Hemsworth: The actor, who was BDOTW last week, was looking mighty fine again in a azure Calvin Klein Spring 2015 two-button notch lapel suit that nearly matched his eyes. I loved the striking yet simple pop of the Calvin Klein Spring 2015 royal-purple silk tie and stark white dress shirt. Brown Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ loafers rounded out the ensemble.

Chris Evans: Opting for a darker colour palette, Chris wore a Gucci three-piece plaid suit with a striped baby-blue button-down and brown tie. I wish the shirt had been a solid white in this case, but I do love that he seems to be wearing bright magenta socks.

Jeremy Renner: He and Chris Hemsworth were near mirror images of each other with similarly hued blue suits and the same Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ shoes. jeremy wore his look with a black dress shirt and tonal blue tie, avoiding complete matchy-matchy territory. However, I favour Chris’s lighter approach on this occasion.

‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ LA Premiere Menswear Roundup

‘Avengers Age Of Ultron’ LA Premiere Menswear Roundup

The ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Los Angeles premiere wasn’t without its own group of superhero studs who walked the red carpet at Dolby Theatre on Monday (April 13) in Hollywood, California.

Chris Evans: The actor didn’t disappoint in his Gucci blue-and-white seersucker
‘Dylan’ suit paired with a white dress shirt, blue patterned tie, and blue and grey pocket square. Seersucker always holds a special place in my heart for its crisp, casual flair and comfortable vibe, and this was an exceptional rendition of the breezy style.

Jeremy Renner
: Taking his look to more dark and handsome territory, Jeremy was as suave as ever in a classic Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tux that fit him like a glove.

Chris Hemsworth: Like Chris Evans, this Chris also embraced a lighter suit, his a Salvatore Ferragamo two-button soft beige-and-blue plaid rendition matched with brown loafers and a dark tie. I wasn’t quite as charmed as with the seersucker suit, but this is a polished look nevertheless.
