2015 Golden Globes Menswear Roundup

2015 Golden Globes Menswear Roundup

The guys were none too shabby when it came to their sartorial selections at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards, held last night (January 11) at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, boasting a range of looks that went way beyond the standard black tux.

Matt Bomer: The Best Supporting Actor winner for ‘The Normal Heart’ was dressed just as winningly in an impeccable Ralph Lauren Black Label navy shawl collar tuxedo that naturally brought out his own baby blues and was handsomely paired with a dark bowtie and crisp white button-down shirt.

Eddie Redmayne: Looking as sharp as ever, ‘The Theory of Everything’ Best Actor winner took a Euro-cool version of black velvet out for a spin, donning a Gucci notch-lapel, two-button New Signoria evening jacket with a white evening shirt, black satin bowtie, black tuxedo trousers and black patent leather lace-up shoes.

Alan Cumming
: Having quite the nude moment, ‘The Good Wife’ actor and nominee wore a buff wool, two-button peak lapel tuxedo, buff dress shirt and buff silk skinny tie from the Spring 2015 Calvin Klein Collection. Between the monochromatic buff-ness and the rolled pant legs, not to mention his Christian Louboutin ‘Mika On Stage’ sneakers, this look translated as more comical than cool.

Ruth Wilson In Prada – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Ruth Wilson In Prada – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Ruth Wilson attended the 2015 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 11) in Beverly Hills, California.

In opposition to her typically edgy Red Carpet look, the actress wore an olive green Prada gown with black stitching and a feathered, turquoise detail. Its straight, floor-length and harsh cut around the shoulders strip away a certain level of femininity that Ruth usually exudes.

I think that the striped, cinched waist is the only part of this dress that benefits Ruth’s shape. The color is relatively blah, and her light eye makeup and peach lip do not complement the ensemble.

Even if her hair was styled differently, I don’t think it could have completely salvaged the look.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup 8 jan

Here is a quick menswear round-up from the 2014 People’s Choice Awards and other events this week.

Ben Affleck: The handsome ‘Gone Girl’ actor collected his ‘Choice Humanitarian Award’ at the People’s Choice Awards for his work in the Congo from Amy Adams wearing a Gucci Made to Measure grey notch-lapel two-button three-piece suit styled with a white evening shirt, blue silk tie and leather lace-ups.

Kit Harington: The British actor was looking very suave in his black slim-fit Lanvin Homme suit styled with Jimmy Choo lace-ups for the ‘Testament of Youth’ London premiere on Monday (January 5) alongside co-star Alicia Vikander. It was a cold night, but he looks oh-so-very hot.

Chris Evans: The actor collected his ‘Favourite Action Movie’ award at the People’s Choice Awards, opting for a dressy-casual Gucci look consisting of a navy cashmere V-neck sweater with a plaid dress shirt, black silk tie, black trousers and black leather lace-ups. This has me swooning as much as Kit Harington in his classic suit.

Olga Kurylenko In Prada – ‘The Water Diviner’ Sydney Premiere

Olga Kurylenko In Prada - 'The Water Diviner' Sydney Premiere

Olga Kurylenko attended the world premiere of ‘The Water Diviner’ held at the State Theatre on Tuesday (December 2) in Sydney, Australia.

The gorgeous actress wore a Prada mint-green multi-layered silk georgette gown with a cross-over bodice and neck-tie that draped softly down her back.

This is yet another example of how frustratingly inconsistent Prada’s red carpet gowns are, as Olga is a vision of perfection here, even though I wish she would return to her brunette locks.

Soft, elegant and feminine, perhaps Miuccia’s red carpet mantra going forward should be less is more.

Tiffany & Co. jewels rounded out her stunning red carpet look.

Nicole Kidman In Prada – Agon Channel Launch Party

Nicole Kidman In Prada - Agon Channel Launch Party

Following the London premiere of her latest movie, ‘Paddington’, Nicole Kidman attended the Agon Channel launch party photocall on Wednesday (November 26) in Milan, Italy.

The actress wore Prada, again.

Without the crystal trims it would appear that this jacquard frock is from the Spring 2015 collection.

While I loved the playful look from the London premiere, this doesn’t work for me in any way, shape or form, proving that when it comes to red carpet dressing, Prada is very hit and miss, with more of the latter than the former.

This look is far too stuffy for Nicole. I don’t find the dress to be particularly flattering and I’m not a fan of the high neckline.

Apart from her gorgeous face and soft, wavy updo, there is nothing positive I can take from this look.

Nicole Kidman In Prada – ‘Paddington’ London Premiere

Nicole Kidman In Prada - 'Paddington' London Premiere

Nicole Kidman attended the world premiere of ‘Paddington’ held at Odeon Leicester Square on Sunday (November 23) in London, England.

Keeping her curly updo shielded from the rain with a clear umbrella, I love the playful exuberance I’m getting from this Prada Resort 2015 trompe l’oeil black and sheer-sleeved frock. Perfect for a kids’ movie.

Prada seem to be sticking to this crystal-accented formula for their red carpet dresses; you may remember that this same detailing featured on both Jessica Chastain’s and Felicity Jones’ Prada frocks.

Other than her brolly, the other noteworthy accessory here is Nicole’s Christian Louboutin ‘Allegra’ cut-out shoe boots.
