Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014 Menswear Roundup

Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014 Menswear Roundup 1With a myriad of menswear looks on the blue carpet, the guys mostly nixed the standard black suit in favour of more colourful options at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California yesterday (March 1). Not that I was complaining.

Matthew McConaughey: Taking his flashy jackets to another level, the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ actor and Best Male Lead winner wore an allover metallic bronze three-piece suite by Dolce & Gabbana. Skipping the tie, an unbuttoned black button-down shirt had nothing on those attention-grabbing, cobalt-blue Tod’s shoes. Do you like the razzle-dazzle here?

Jared Leto: Like Matthew, Jared picked up a win for his work in ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’ The actor-musician was dressed in his standard rocker-grunge edge wearing separates including a black leather biker Balmian Homme jacket and black skinny jeans. Of course, a shirt was tied around his waist—this time, a red plaid Saint Laurent one—and he topped off the look with a black-and-white striped scarf and black Giuseppe Zanotti combat boots.

Michael B Jordan: The always-sharp dresser didn’t disappoint in his cream-coloured Dolce & Gabbana suit, paired with a quirky printed button-down shirt, a black pocket square, black brogues and a rose-gold Piaget watch. The ‘Fruitvale Station’ actor always manages to combine sartorial polish with a punch of attitude.

Matthew McConaughey In Hugo Boss and Camila Alves In Dolce & Gabbana – 86th Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon

Matthew McConaughey In Hugo Boss and Camila Alves In Dolce & Gabbana - 86th Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves attended the 86th Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California.

Matthew McConaughey: Saving his snazzy jackets perhaps for the main event, the actor donned a beige Hugo Boss two-button suit styled with an open black shirt. I would have preferred a white shirt for a fresher look, considering it was a daytime event, but he would have looked good either way.

Camila Alves: The TV presenter once again showed love for Dolce & Gabbana, wearing a slightly retro feeling pale-rose brocade dress, with crystal-embellishment adding a girlish touch. Martin Katz jewelry, pretty pink pointy pumps and a side-swept braid rounded out her look. My only issue was perhaps the dress was a tad too snug in the hip area.

Vanessa Hudgens In Hugo Boss – 2013 amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles

Vanessa Hudgens In Hugo Boss - 2013 amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles

Vanessa Hudgens attended the 2013 amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles held at Milk Studios on Thursday evening (December 12) in Los Angeles, California joining Zoe Saldana, Goldie Hawn and Alessandra Ambrosio.

The actress wore a Hugo Boss look which consisted of a cropped satin-lapel blazer styled with a high-waisted maxi skirt with floral appliqués.

Despite this being a mid-December midriff-baring look, I find myself really liking this look.

The danger with Vanessa is usually her styling, which is often overworked, but on this occasion just a Swarovski jet crystal ‘Pure’ clutch, gold bracelet and glossy red lips didn’t disrupt the simple nature of her look.

Alessandra Ambrosio In Hugo Boss – amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles

Alessandra Ambrosio In Hugo Boss -  amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles

Alessandra Ambrosio attended the amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles held at Milk Studios on Thursday evening (December 12) in Hollywood, California joining Zoe Saldana and Goldie Hawn.

The model gave this Hugo Boss Fall 2013 embellished, side-slit gown with a deep plunge its third run out on the red carpet.

You may remember that both Jourdan Dunn and Shu Qi have both worn this dress before.

Alessandra was the only one to wear this risqué gown with the runway gold-plated belt, adding complementary metallic-gold T-bar Louboutin ‘T-Piga’ pumps which I wish were sandals and Martin Katz jewels.

Bombshell wavy tresses and a glossy pout completed her look.

Third time’s the charm?

Richard Armitage In Hugo Boss – ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug’ LA Premiere

Richard Armitage In Hugo Boss - 'The Hobbit The Desolation Of Smaug' LA PremiereRichard Armitage was at ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug’ Los Angeles premiere on Monday at the TCL Chinese Theatre in California, where he also joined Orlando Bloom and Benedict Cumberbatch on the red carpet.

The British actor held his own, striking a handsome stance in a slate-grey Hugo Boss three-piece suit that actually worked to enhance his baby blues.

An eggplant tie with tie clip, along with patent mahogany loafers, injected a more interesting colour story here, whereas black pairings would have been far too expected.

After seeing his co-stars Orlando and Benedict, how do you rate Richard’s look?

Vogue NO.100 Night In Beijing

Vogue NO 100 Night In Beijing

The glamour was on full display at Tuesday’s Vogue NO. 100 Night in Beijing. Here’s a look at who wore what for the evening’s festivities.

Shu Qi: The actress wore an embellished Hugo Boss Fall 2013 gown with its statement hardware belt, styling it with a slicked-back bun and minimalist drop earrings. While this dress was previously worn by Jourdan Dunn, it could almost be mistaken as two very different looks, don’t you think?

Du Juan: The model-actress stepped out in a floor-length, sleeveless Valentino Resort 2014 dress that featured all-over floral embroidery. Her pin-straight locks and red lip completed the look.

Liu Zi: Clad in a wine-red Emporio Armani Fall 2013 number, Liu Zi showed off the dress’s one sleeve on, one sleeve off detail, along with its almost cumbersome voluminous shape. She paired the look with a black-and-gold clutch and a gold collar statement necklace.

Qin Shupei: The lanky model chose a strapless LWD with floral-embroidered waist detail from the Christian Dior Fall 2013 collection, which she complemented with a red lip, white pumps, and a simple double-strand silver necklace.

Li Feier: By choosing a floor-skimming white lace Dolce & Gabbana number, Li looked mermaid-like and ethereal. She accessorized with a white clutch, gold cuff, and a skinny tiara.

Emma Pei: The model evoked quite the 1920s flapper vibe in her Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 look, consisting of a silver-sequin, black-button vest top layered over a black velvet dress. A gold-plated black clutch, black sandals, and barely-there makeup were her final touches.

Haden Kuo: The actress wore a sleeveless, floor-length, gold Andrew Gn Fall 2013 dress with black lace overlay, pairing it with her long wavy locks to finish.

Ge Huijie: The model selected one of the dramatic mesh-and-feathered dresses from the Gucci Fall 2013 lineup. The eye-catching points didn’t stop there, though. She styled her dress with sheer black tights, holographic sandals, a grey clutch, hoop earrings, and a matte red lip.
