Susan Sarandon In Paul Smith – ‘Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story’ London Screening

Susan Sarandon was at the London screening of ‘Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story’ on Thursday (March 8).

As last Thursday was International Women’s Day, she perhaps intentionally went for an androgynous power suit from Paul Smith.

However, so entranced was I by the royal-blue hue on her that the tailoring took second fiddle.

I’m sure most of us may have been wishing for a sultry sandal or pump to finish out the look with a bit of va-va-voom flair.

But, there was a good-natured irony to the pink-laced sneakers, and she rocked the smart-casual addition like nobody’s business.

2018 SAG Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Many of the fellows at the 2018 SAG Awards weren’t content to just wear the standard black tux, making for quite the scene-stealing list of looks on Sunday (January 21) in LA.

Noah Schnapp: The young ‘Stranger Things’ star continued to win my affection with a lesson in all that is dapper in his custom-made velvet tuxedo by Stella McCartney paired with Jésù-SégunLondon slipper-style shoes, a Brackish bowtie, and Mrs Bow Tie pocket square. What a charmer.

Sterling K. Brown:
The ‘This Is Us’ star won the best actor award, and his look was equally stellar in this Giorgio Armani tuxedo styled with a Chopard timepiece and cufflinks. This was a lesson in the appeal of classic style with a modern twist thanks to the shades and the slim-line, slightly cropped proportions.

Dacre Montgomery:
I liked this Giorgio Armani ensemble for its unorthodox twist on the traditional tux in the chocolate-brown hue and exaggerated shawl label. Wearing his dress shirt unbuttoned at the top added a rebellious flavour that actually echoed his ‘Stranger Things’ character quite well. Montblanc cufflinks completed the look.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

There were so many great menswear looks to take the red-carpet stage over the weekend.

Caleb McLaughlin: At the ripe age of 16, this ‘Stranger Things’ star is showing his incredible flair for style in this 3.1 Phillip Lim paint-splattered ensemble at the 2017 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 19) in LA. I love how he fully committed to the look, right down to the shoes—and that this is both youthful and fashion-forward at the same time.

Harry Styles: At the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Monday (November 20) in Shanghai, China, Harry did what he does best combining retro and modern style influences in this Givenchy Spring 2018 mint suit and matching silk shirt paired with Givenchy boots.

Machine Gun Kelly: This Comme des Garçons ensemble took the abstract, paint-splattered effect to even greater lengths at the American Music Awards. But, despite the exaggerated elements, the effect came off as directionally cool rather than comical.

Birks UK Jewellery Launch

Renowned Canadian jewellery brand Birks celebrated its launch in the UK with a cocktail event at Canada House  in London on Monday (October 16).

Laura Haddock: I thought it was quite fitting that Laura wore one of her favourite designers – Emilia Wickstead – to give her baby bump its red carpet debut. The last time she wore pink was during her ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ promo tour, but on this occasion she could be dropping a subtle hint that she’s expecting a girl. Laura wore the Muse mesh hoop earrings and Muse ribbon cuff bracelet from the Birks Muse Collection and the Rose du Matin wrap flex wrap ring in yellow gold from the Birks Rose du Matin Collection with navy Louboutins.

Arizona Muse: We don’t see enough Paul Smith on the red carpet, so I’m delighted to see Arizona don this suit in fashion’s most daring shade – raspberry. The sharp tailoring and plush fabrication ensure that this look will never date. Arizona wore the Bee Chic Honeycomb earrings with diamonds, Bee Chic Honeycomb pendant with diamond & Bee Chic Honeycomb ring with diamonds from the Birks Bee Chic Collection.

Victoria Pendleton In Paul Smith – Ladies Day Royal Ascot

Victoria Pendleton In Paul Smith - Ladies Day Royal Ascot

Considering the grey skies and the downpour we had in England earlier today, I am not surprised that Victoria Pendleton attended Royal Ascot on Ladies’ Day, held at Ascot Racecourse, wearing autumnal colours.

Her festive Paul Smith black-green-and-red abstract-print fit-and-flare dress was accented with a patent-leather belt and topped off with an obligatory Philip Treacy hat in a red hue, which really lifts the look along with her bold red lip colour.

Had it not been for the hat, I may have missed this look altogether.
