‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Berlin Premiere Menswear Round Up

'Star Trek Into Darkness' Premiere

For the German premiere of the much-anticipated ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, held in Berlin on Monday, three of the male stars and director J.J. Abrams, along with Alice Eve and Zoe Saldana, arrived in very different looks. They showed the know how to style a suit, but only two of them nailed the fit.

Simon Pegg: The British actor went with a grey suit with notch lapels over a classic white shirt. The jacket fits well, but the pants do not. He wisely finished it all off with a burgundy slim tie and a pink silk pocket square.

Zachary Quinto: Known to be a great dresser, Zachary added to his impressive menswear résumé with a perfectly cut navy suit with shawl lapels over a pale blue shirt. The details made him stand out. Along with the suit, he added a wild-patterned black-and-white tie and a plaid pocket square. None of the colours were identical, giving him more of a statement look and less of a uniformed look.

Chris Pine: He opted for a Ralph Lauren brown checked suit with notch lapels similar to one he wore in November at ‘The Rise of the Guardians’ premiere. It was a fantastic looking suit that was incredibly eye-catching, but his pants needed to fit more like Zachary’s. The fit of the jacket is great and the addition of the wide tie (and the manly beard) gave him a more powerful look. I love the decision to wear the contrast-collar shirt as well.

J.J. Abrams: The director has very much been keeping-up-with-the-Jones’ so to speak, as his classic suits and stand-out ties have been favoured just as much as the cast of this movie.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Ralph Lauren – Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball

Gwyneth Paltrow In Ralph Lauren - Tiffany & Co Blue Book Ball

Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t attend the London premiere for ‘Iron Man 3’ yesterday evening as she had headed back to New York for the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City.

With the blue theme in mind, the actress wore a Ralph Lauren steel-blue silk-mousseline cold-shoulder gown, which she of course styled with Tiffany & Co. diamonds.

Beauty-wise, she opted for shimmering silver eye makeup, glossy pink lips and a side-parted hairdo.

Your complaints regarding Gwyneth are that lately her red carpet looks have been mostly monochrome and that you have long grown tired of her centre-parting.

Well, here you have a blue gown and a side parting. Is it enough?

Kirsten Dunst In Ralph Lauren – 2013 Coachella

Kirsten Dunst In Ralph Lauren - 2013 Coachella

Kirsten Dunst and boyfriend Garrett Hedlund attended the Neon Carnival party after a day at the 2013 Coachella Music Festival on Saturday evening.

The ‘Melancholia’ actress was the epitome of 1930s chic in the Double RL Ralph Lauren ‘Stella’ dress.

Her navy printed dress with four patch pockets and clear buttons was styled with a grey cardigan, black sandals, a tan Ralph Lauren Collection cross-body saddle bag and a Jennifer Meyer gold pendant necklace.

Kirsten’s effortless look was the perfect day-to-night festival look.

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Ralph Lauren – Bal de la Rose du Rocher

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Ralph Lauren - Bal de la Rose du Rocher

Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco attended the ‘Bal de la Rose du Rocher’ in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation, which celebrated the 150th anniversary of the SBM at Sporting Monte-Carlo in Monaco on Saturday.

Princess Charlene opted for a part-princess, part-biker look, styling her custom Ralph Lauren gown with a fitted Ralph Lauren ‘Davidson’ biker jacket.

I can’t help but feel very disappointed that she opted to cover the main attraction of her ivory gown, because it featured intricate gold detailing which wrapped around her neck and draped over her shoulders.

Heavy, smoky eyes and a retro marcel-wave hairdo completed her look.

Do you prefer the look with or without the biker jacket?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kerry Washington In Oscar de la Renta, Eddie Redmayne In Topman and Josh Duhamel In Ralph Lauren

BDOTW Bafta weeken

We agreed that Kerry Washington in her divine Oscar de la Renta gown was the best when it came to womenswear, but our picks for men differed.

You loved the sleek inexpensive Topman suit worn by Eddie Redmayne, while I was busy drooling over Josh Duhamel in Ralph Lauren.

Partly because of the colour, but the fact that he is so damn handsome also factored in my decision-making process.

Josh Duhamel In Ralph Lauren – ‘Safe Haven’ LA Premiere

Josh Duhamel In Ralph Lauren - 'Safe Haven' LA Premiere

Josh Duhamel provided some much-needed eye candy on the red carpet at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California last night for the ‘Safe Haven’ premiere.

Joining his co-star Julianne Hough, the handsome actor wore a blue Ralph Lauren suit with midnight-blue lace-up shoes.

His vibrant two-button notched-lapel suit, styled with a light-grey checked shirt and maroon tie, was near perfect.

I just wish the pants were an inch shorter.

Evan Rachel Wood In Ralph Lauren Purple Label – ‘The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman’ Sundance Film Festival Premiere

Evan Rachel Wood In Ralph Lauren Purple Label - 'The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman' Sundance Film Festival Premiere

Evan Rachel Wood attended ‘The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman’ premiere held at the Eccles Center Theatre during the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah yesterday.

The actress, who recently announced that she and husband Jamie Bell are expecting their first child, wasn’t showing any signs of impending motherhood wearing a Ralph Lauren Purple Label suit.

In the past, Evan has been the master (second to Tilda, of course) of androgynous dressing, but on this occasion it isn’t quite working for me.

Maybe it’s the brown striped suit paired with a purple striped shirt, the scuffed boots, the greasy-looking hair or all of the above.

As much as I’m looking forward to her maternity style, this look gets a no from me.

Robin Wright In Ralph Lauren – ‘House of Cards’ Netflix Original Series Launch

Robin Wright In Ralph Lauren - ‘House of Cards’ Netflix Original Series Launch

Robin Wright joined Kate Mara on the red carpet for the launch of Netflix Original Series ‘House of Cards’ in London yesterday evening.

Sporting a pixie cut, the actress looked very statuesque wearing a Ralph Lauren Spring 2013 gown.

The black-and-ivory halter gown, with a satin top accented with black buttons and black embroidered corset-like detail at the waist, was simply styled with Stuart Weitzman ‘Victoria’ black peep-toes and stud earrings.

The fit of the top of the gown prevents me from loving the look. A few minor adjustments would’ve perfected it.

Robin must have been freezing, considering its been cold enough to snow in the capital, but she shows no signs of it on the red carpet.
