Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 25 Feb

Between premieres and the Elle Style Awards, there was a lot of man candy on the red carpet last night.

Will Smith: Looking as sharp as ever, the actor joined his wife Jada Pinkett Smith on the red carpet for the ‘Focus’ LA premiere wearing a striped three-piece suit working a divine combo of navy and lilac.

Lewis Hamilton: The Formula 1 racing driver wore a rich burgundy suit from Marni’s Spring 2015 collection, taking styling notes from Tinie Tempah and opting for cropped trousers that showed off his Cesare Casadei black moccasins. I’m not sure if this looks cool or comical. Cool from the calves up methinks.

2015 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscar men

The men were out in force at the 2015 Oscars and the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where there was plenty of handsome inspiration to go around from a fine group of fellows.

Jared Leto: Getting the evening started on a non-traditional note, the actor and musician was every bit the unorthodox Academy Awards dresser in his baby-blue Givenchy tux, accented by a white bowtie and white lug sole shoes. He let his hair down literally and made no excuses for it, saying that the Oscars was his going-away party for his locks. I wonder if the beard was also included in that party. While no one could pull this off like Jared, between the mane and the male pastels, this was verging on almost too much too handle.

Chris Pine: A stark contrast to Jared, Chris went for the all-out traditionally classic route and suited up in a Giorgio Armani black double-breasted peak-lapel tuxedo. It was impeccable and goes to show what transformative power a well-tailored tux can have.

David Oyelowo: Looking as if he was inspired by the red carpet itself, the ‘Selma’ actor dressed to impress in a crimson Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo word with #TackleEbola handcrafted pin by Jason of Beverly Hills. He does a great job pulling off this colour, yet I’m not completely sold on the satiny look of the vest and bowtie underneath.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lea Seydoux In Prada, Tom Hiddleston In Alexander McQueen, David Beckham & David Oyelowo

Best Dressed This Week - Lea Seydoux In Prada, Tom Hiddleston In Alexander McQueen, David Beckham & David Oyelowo

The best dressed poll was one of the hardest ever with so many great looks that on any other week would’ve all come out on top.

Our favourite was Lea Seydoux in her yellow Prada gown for its beauty, gracefulness and elegance, with Elizabeth Banks a very close second.

When it came to the fellas you guys couldn’t separate Tom Hiddleston in Alexander McQueen and David Beckham’s BAFTA look, while David Oyelowo stood out for me looking sharp and refined in a classic-with-a-twist look.

Prada The Iconoclasts, New York 2015

Prada The Iconoclasts, New York 2015

Prada hosted an evening to celebrate the latest chapter of ‘The Iconoclasts’ installation project with a private viewing of their collaboration with distinguished costume designer Arianne Phillips during New York Fashion Week on Thursday (February 12).

Hailee Steinfeld: Even with the vivid print of the trousers and the steely blue colour of her top, what captivates me here is her makeup, especially that plump red lip. The look itself is an eclectic mix of pieces from Prada’s Spring 2015 collection featuring a coat with contrast stitching, which was a signature of said collection.

Bonnie Wright: The British actress has long been a member of the Prada family. On this occasion she wore a Prada contrast-stitch dress that echoes her style sensibility: simple, classic, no fuss.

Gabrielle Union: The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress was not about to let the sub-zero temperatures of the city come between her and her Prada crop-top look. The touch of sparkle accented on her pleated skirt gives this causal offering an after-dark flourish. Black Prada sandals and Vale jewels completed her easy breezy look.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of some menswear red carpet looks, including a one more from the Grammys.

Robert Pattinson: Always one to keep menswear interesting, the British actor wore several shades of grey in his Gucci look, which included a ‘Signoria’ wool coat and a red tie. I’m sure he was a gentleman and offered said coat to co-star Alessandra Mastronardi, who wore a strapless Elie Saab gown to the same event.

Dane DeHaan: The actor was not to be outdone. The face of Prada wore Prada, wearing an impeccably tailored navy kid mohair two-button suit with a sky-blue Oxford shirt and navy satin bow tie. If only Prada’s women’s red carpet offerings could have the same 100% hit rate as the men’s.

Ryan Reynolds: Leaving his gorgeous wife and newborn at home, Ryan joined the evergreen Helen Mirren on the red carpet for the Berlin Film Festival premiere of ‘Women in Gold’. Sticking to classic black, the slim-fit suit was styled with a striped tie that almost gives a nod to collegiate style.
