2017 BET Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The guys at the 2017 BET Awards were not to leave it to the girls for all the head-turning sartorial extravaganzas, as they delivered plenty of their own on Sunday (June 25) in LA.

Gucci Mane: Gucci Mane played the name game and donned a Gucci Fall 2016 sky-blue suit embellished with a sword-through-the-heart motif. A few layers of additional bling were to be expected with diamond cross pendants, rings, and bracelets. DJ Khaled’s baby son, Asahd, gave Gucci a run for his money though, as he wore a mini version of the same suit—sans bling—for the ultimate twinning moment.

French Montana: We’ve seen the pyjama trend on the red carpet, but French was all about the robe life in this Gucci Spring 2017 piece that was hyper-decorated in a bizarre fusion of Asiatic embroideries and Donald Duck. Presented over a white dress shirt, distressed denim and gold chains, it really did seem like he failed to remove his dressing gown before leaving home.

Demetrius Shipp Jr.: A fine vision in aubergine, Demetrius put the sillier sartorial statements to shame in this Ermenegildo Zegna monochromatic suit that he suavely styled with black slipper shoes.

Tallia Storm In Gucci – Jersey Style Awards 2017

Scottish singer Tallia Storm attended the Jersey Style Awards 2017 on Saturday (June 24) in Trinity, Jersey.

With a dramatic approach, she wore an embellished Gucci Spring 2017 dressing gown that was decorated with the roaring tiger motif at the back.

Provocative not by way of its skin-baring appeal—the lining took care of that—but more so in its moody, dark appeal, it was an interesting choice for the young starlet.

Speaking of that lining, though, the off-white colour didn’t provide as seamless of an effect as it should have, as it was blatantly noticed through the sheer chiffon.

It just all seemed a bit overworked. Would you agree?

Kirsten Dunst In Gucci – ‘The Beguiled’ New York Premiere

It was the New York premiere of Kirsten Dunst’s new film, ‘The Beguiled’ on Thursday (June 22), and the actress gave us vintage gothic vibes in Gucci.

We’re used to seeing Kirsten in light frothy numbers, pale colour palettes, and plenty of nostalgic silhouettes- so this black ensemble was a little different.

The period references were, however, still there. The wide collar, buttons, and loose braid all brought an old-fashioned feel, but did the voluminous sleeves steer this into costume territory?

I love the simple and modern slick of red lipstick, which adds a contemporary feel to this look, and is visually impactful against the black.

Was this a red carpet hit or miss for you?

Kirsten Dunst In Gucci – SiriusXM

Kirsten Dunst was pretty in prints on Wednesday (June 21) when she visited the SiriusXM Studios in New York City, where she promoted her latest film, ‘The Beguiled’ ahead of tonight’s premiere.

I love the energy of the print on this Gucci shirt dress which has an almost art deco quality to it. The graphic shapes work well with the more relaxed open neck and rolled sleeves style.

The red hues of the shoes and lip tie this whole look together and bring some crisp cohesion despite the busy design.

What do you make of this look?

Jennifer Lopez In Gucci – World of Dance

For the ‘World of Dance’ episodes 4, 5, and 6 on NBC, judge and executive producer Jennifer Lopez will be seen in a look that is classic J. Lo.

Wearing a sequin pussybow Gucci top with a blue-and-red trimmed Gucci skirt, she put her Jenny from the Block edge on this playful ensemble.

There was a sweet, twee spirit to the top and the skirt was obviously made quite mini in form to fit within her leggy standards.

But, the sleek colour palette and sassy Jimmy Choo pumps kept the look in youthfully sophisticated form. Would you agree?
