Menswear Roundup

Menswear RoundupA handful of handsome guys were on the scene this week. Here, a look at their sartorial statements.

Andrew Garfield: Joining Emma Stone at the Berlin premiere of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man: Rise of Electro’ at the Sony Center on Tuesday (April 15), the lead actor was all buttoned up in a refined Louis Vuitton double-breasted, grey plaid suit, accessorized with a dark micro-dot tie, lavender dress shirt and brown loafers.

James Franco: Alongside Leighton Meester, James was at the Broadway opening night after-party for ‘Of Mice and Men,’ held on Wednesday (April 16) at New York City’s Plaza Hotel. He took a classic turn in a black Gucci peak-lapel, two-button ‘Signoria’ suit with a white evening shirt, black silk tie and black leather lace-ups—worn with a side of facial scruff.

Dane DeHaan: Well-coordinated to his co-star at ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ premiere, Dane was also dressed in grey, wearing a Prada suit with a white popeline printed shirt and black calf lace-up loafers. Did you like his tie-less look?

Lea Seydoux In Prada – ‘La belle et la bête’ Beijing Press Conference

Léa Seydoux  In Prada - 'La belle et la bete' Beijing Press Conference

Lea Seydoux attended ‘La belle et la bête’ press conference during the 2014 Beijing International Film Festival held at Beijing Hotel on Tuesday (April 15) in Beijing, China.

Continuing her love for all things Prada/Miu Miu (she is the face of the Resort 2014 campaign, after all), the French beauty wore a very sophisticated LBD by Prada.

Featuring a sweetheart neckline and accented with a black velvet belt, the look was served up with two pops of colour via her bright-pink on-trend lip colour and her Prada blue suede ankle-strap sandals encrusted with gold stones.

Many of you were thrown off Brooklyn Decker’s look on account of the bold bolt of blue provided by her footwear; do Lea’s shoes turn you off this look?

Jared Leto’s Coachella 2014 Style

Jared Leto's Coachella StyleBefore the MTV Movie Awards 2014, Jared Leto was making waves—or at least his style was—whilst at Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California last weekend (April 11-12). The actor hit the desert scene in appropriately fest-ready attire, looking every bit like an off-duty rock star with equal parts grit, grunge and edge.

Friday: Imparting a bit of the tropics into his ensemble, he put on a blue beach-print short-sleeve popeline shirt from the Prada Uomo Spring 2014 Collection, pairing it with a message tee and slouched, skinny dark pants. His Zadig & Voltaire ‘Joe’ boots, which we’ve seen a few times during this past awards season, made another appearance in their half unzipped and undone state. Of course, the aviator shades, leather wrist cuff and the shirt tied around the waist were all presented and accounted for.

Saturday: The next day, he injected a wild edge into his look via Saint Laurent zebra-print jeans from the Spring 2014 collection, which he wore with a white Enfants Riches Déprimes t shirt worn back to front and black Vans sneakers. This time, he brought back the red plaid with one of his favoured accessories: the shirt around his waist.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise Of Electro’ Rome Premiere Menswear Roundup

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Rise Of Electro' Rome Premiere Menswear Roundup

The boys of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise Of Electro’ are doing a very good job of keeping up with the stylish Emma Stone.

Last night in Rome, they once again showcased their savvy, individual styles.

Andrew Garfield: When in Rome, go sans socks? That is what Andrew did, wearing a Viktor & Rolf Monsieur burgundy suit from the Fall 2014 collection worn with an open-collar shirt and brown lace-ups.

Dane DeHaan: The actor, who is the current face of Prada’s Spring 2014 campaign, wore a light-brown suit from said collection with the most interesting part of the look being his floral-print shirt. While some might think the suit is too stuffy buttoned up, I think it’s better this way to prevent the look feeling like a Hawaiian vacation shirt.

Jamie Foxx: Solidifying his spot as the dapper one of the group, Jamie donned another Ozwald Boateng suit working the bow-tie angle. While the trouser length may not be perfect, this is still a very slick look.

Du Juan In Prada – 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards

Du Juan In Prada - 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards

Du Juan joined a host of gorgeous stars on the red carpet for the 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards on Sunday (April 9) in Hong Kong, China.

Here we have yet another Prada gown but, unlike Gemma Arterton’s show stopper, I’m only half onboard with this look: the top half.

I’m totally baffled by the dual-coloured black-and-red taffeta skirt; it looks ill-thought-out and doesn’t combine with the beautiful pink tulle stretch top enriched with crystal all-over embroidery, which I adore.

What Miuccia gives with one hand, she takes away with the other.

I wish she would give us consistently brilliant red carpet gowns, because when they are good, they are breathtaking.
