Angelina Jolie In Saint Laurent – ‘World War Z’ Paris Premiere

Angelina Jolie In Saint Laurent - 'World War Z' Paris Premiere

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were back on the red carpet this evening for the Paris premiere for ‘World War Z’.

Two things remained the same from the London premiere; the designer and the colour, of course.

Angelina donned a black Saint Laurent masculine wool sable suit which she styled with a feminine black silk mousseline blouse with a necktie detail.

She carries the suit off very well and I love how she’s giving plenty of us attitude with this look. Now only if she should get Brad to wear a suit on this promo tour.

Saint Laurent black pumps and Vermeil jewellery accessorized her look.

Beauty-wise, she opted for a simple ponytail and clear glossy lips on this occasion.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Angelina Jolie In Saint Laurent & Florence Welch In Gucci

Best Dressed Of The Week  - Angelina Jolie In Saint Laurent & Florence Welch In Gucci

Angelina Jolie in Saint Laurent was your best dressed this week.

While some might say this was a sympathy vote, I would strongly disagree, saying that while this is yet another black dress from Ange, it was a sexy, statement-making look and one of her finest all-black looks to date.

I opted for Florence Welch in Gucci. Yes, the look might feel a tad familiar; however, I was captivated by the colour, her stage presence and the billowing effect of the cape, plus she was by far the best dressed at the ‘Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live’ Concert.

Check back later this evening for live coverage of the CFDA Fashion Awards 2013.

Angelina Jolie In Saint Laurent – ‘World War Z’ World Premiere

Angelina Jolie In Saint Laurent - World War Z World Premiere

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt took to the red carpet this evening in London’s Leicester Square for the world premiere of ‘World War Z’, a film which Brad not only stars in, but he also produced.

The handsome couple both wore black, but all eyes were on Angelina who made her first public appearance since announcing last month that she underwent a preventative double mastectomy.

Sticking to her signature black, the actress wore a modest black gown with a sheer panelled fitted bodice, open back and free flowing skirt.

As always, she opted for barely there makeup and two gold bracelets on each wrist.

Considering her recent trying times, one must appreciate her efforts to work such a glamorous look on this occasion.

Jessica Chastain In Saint Laurent – amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Jessica Chastain In Saint Laurent - amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Following her bedazzling gown from the night before, Jessica Chastain opted for a more subdued look for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France this evening.

The only bit of bling came from her Bulgari serpent bracelet, as she wore a beautiful maroon Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane gown.

Her asymmetrical gown with a cut-out detail is yet another elegant look from the actress.

The colour, which closely matches her flame-coloured hair, is divine and her makeup is nothing short of perfect.

You weren’t too fond of her ponytail yesterday, as it was enough to put many of you off the look; however, she sported glossy wavy tresses on this occasion.

Do you approve?

‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere Menswear Round Up

‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere Menswear Round Up

‘The Great Gatsby’ stars Joel Edgerton and Tobey Maguire were on the carpet for their film’s Australia premiere in Sydney on Wednesday.

Joel Edgerton: Even when half his outfit is drenched, Joel makes it look good. He wore an Ermenegildo Zegna grey two-button notch-lapel jacket along with a pair of grey trousers. The light grey was a suitable colour and it looked good with the brown shoes and purple tie.

Tobey Maguire: Keeping his slim silhouette, Tobey opted for a well-cut Saint Laurent navy gabardine suit. It fit well, though the pants bunched up a bit by the ankles. He kept the look subtle with a white Dylan-collar shirt and a black silk tie.

Both actors kept their looks simple. I liked Joel’s because of the shoes and the coloured tie, however, Tobey’s gabardine suit was able to withstand the downpour.

Cannes Film Festival Menswear Round Up

Cannes Film Festival Menswear Round Up

Sunday at the Cannes Film Festival in France included the premiere of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’, which features Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Garrett Hedlund, and the premiere of ‘Blood Ties’, starring Clive Owen and Marion Cotillard.

Garrett Hedlund: Not going with the traditional black tuxedo, Garrett opted for a Saint Laurent midnight-navy tux with black peak lapels. Keeping the color scheme dark, he paired it with a black shirt and a black tie. Garrett looks great, but unfortunately he is standing next to a major menswear mogul in Justin Timberlake.

Justin Timberlake: In the past few months we’ve seen Justin wear tuxedos with perfection. He kept the streak alive, pulling out all of the stops in a beautifully tailored Balenciaga black tuxedo with peak lapels. He kept the look classic as always, with a crisp white shirt, and a black bow tie and cummerbund. To finish it off, he added a Cartier watch, a Lanvin lapel pin, and vintage mother-of-pearl cufflinks.

Oscar Isaac: The star of the film went with a classic black tux, but a few key differences made it stand on its own next to Justin’s similar look. Oscar decided to wear a necktie instead of a bow tie and nixed the cummerbund. Simplicity always works with a tux, so Oscar did well.

Clive Owen: Also sticking with the classics, Clive sported an elegant look in a black tuxedo alongside co-star Marion Cotillard. He finished off the two-button peak-lapel tux with a black bow tie and a white shirt.

It’s a little difficult to choose a favourite out of these four. For me, it was between Garrett and Justin because of the midnight-navy colour and the overall perfection, respectively. I’ll have to give the nod to Justin because of the hair. Grooming counts too.

‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Menswear Round Up

‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival Menswear Round Up

After an opening weekend of over $50 million, the stars of ‘The Great Gatsby’ were in attendance for the film’s premiere at the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival in France on Wednesday evening.

Tobey Maguire: The right fit makes all the difference between a great suit and an impeccable one. In a Saint Laurent black suit, Tobey looks incredibly dapper. The pants fit the way they should and the jacket sleeves are just short enough to show off some shirt cuff, giving him a cleaner look than Leo.

Leonardo DiCaprio: Looking very Gatsby-esque, Leonardo wore a black three-piece tuxedo with black satin linings. He looked good as usual, adding a white shirt, black bow tie, and signature slicked-back hair. If his pants were an inch or two shorter it would have been perfect.

Joel Edgerton: Like a true movie star, Joel arrived in a well-cut Ferragamo black three-piece tux with satin peak lapels. He finished it off with a white shirt, a black bow tie, and David Yurman cufflinks. Difficult to decide between Joel and Tobey.

In the end, my best dressed went to Joel because of the details, like the black button on the jacket and the lined pockets. I also preferred Joel’s shoes to Tobey’s.

Met Gala 2013 Roundup

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.
