2017 Grammy Awards Menswear

The 2017 Grammy Awards wasn’t without its fair share of menswear looks that ran the gamut from traditional to totally out-there.

John Legend: The singer kept it classic in a Gucci black suit, made unique by virtue of the dark rose-coloured dress shirt and matching floral-printed bow tie.

Desiigner: Like some of the girls at the Grammys, the hip hop artist also bared his chest in a luxe velvet vintage Armani suit in a rich eggplant hue styled with Jimmy Choo boots and the requisite chains.

Anderson Paak: The rapper opted for a directional Rick Owens ensemble that was monk-meets-musician.

Solange Knowles In Gucci – 2017 Grammy Awards

Solange Knowles struck a pose at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12).

For the occasion, the trend-setting singer wore a pleated gold Gucci gown with Maryam Nassir Zadeh shoes and jewelry from I Still Love You and Lady Grey.

I mean her last name is Knowles, amma right? This is a total moment, and considering everyone had the name Beyonce on their lips tonight, I love that Solange came and slayed.

While the dress is a work of art in and of itself, her hair styling and attention to detail (did you notice the two different earrings?) are equally relevant, and the whole package is Grammy gold (no pun intended).

Naomie Harris In Gucci – 2017 BAFTAs

Naomie Harris, Best Supporting Actress nominee for ‘Moonlight’, also attended the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

Here’s the thing: without the gaudy orange flowers under her bust, this dress would be one of my favourites. With them, I’m not so sure. But that’s Gucci for you – prettiness and excess are bought together season after season.

This is quite a different look for Naomie. She usually favours a stripe, or monochrome palette, and most of the time wears dresses that are just-below-the-ankle or slightly higher. This prom-style shape is a welcome delight to her wardrobe.

And the colours are spot on too: the dusty pink and the beige make for a wonderful contrast. The orange flowers spoil the serenity though.

Do you love or hate the flowers?

Anya Taylor-Joy In Gucci – 2017 BAFTAs

You can always rely on ‘Split’ actress Anya Taylor-Joy to make a statement on the red carpet, like here, at the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

This Gucci gown will definitely end up on best and worst dressed lists, it’s one of those polarising pieces, but personally… I love it!

The powder blue and coral work perfectly together, and the romantic, pleated layers and rounded sleeves bring a visually brilliant shape to this red carpet. And then you have Gucci’s now signature animal embroidery and delicate beading to the bust and neck line.

There’s always one star to make the ultimate statement, and I’m so glad it was Anya here.

Do you love this look too?

Isabelle Huppert In Gucci – Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Isabelle Huppert attended the 32nd Santa Barbara International Film Festival in on Wednesday (February 8) where she picked up the Montecito Award.

The French actress wore a striking Gucci Pre-Fall 207 gown with a colour-blocked box clutch.

Clearly, the Academy Award nominee plans to be a fashion force this award season, and this is a lovely entry into her award season fashion log.

If you were to verbally describe this gown to someone with no accompanied image, they would likely think you were crazy, but somehow, the colour-blocking, the top-to-bottom sequins and the floral and ‘Loved’ detailing on the bodice all work together for a harmonious gown that Isabelle brings to life brilliantly.

She even takes the bold look a step forward with her shimmery emerald-green heels and rosey-hued clutch.

I love this look, and I’m excited to see what she wears next. What about you?
