Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup 14 nov

Here is a final roundup of some dapper menswear looks this week.

Brad Pitt: The actor is in Seoul, South Korea, where he attended the premiere of his latest movie, ‘Fury’, on Thursday (November 13). Flying solo on the red carpet, the actor wore a black three-piece look from Salvatore Ferragamo’s Fall 2014 collection which he made all the more swoon-worthy with just a simple black tee and rugged boots. There was a time when he was starting to lose his appeal, as homeless chic wasn’t really working for me, but this sees a return to form.

Channing Tatum: The actor made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Wednesday night (November 12) wearing his second windowpane suit of the week. This time his blue peak-lapel suit styled with a pale-blue shirt and navy tie was from his favoured brand, Gucci. I have to say, blue is his colour; I think I prefer this over the grey Dolce & Gabbana look from earlier in the week. Which do you prefer?

Matthew McConaughey In Dolce & Gabbana and Camila Alves In Marchesa – ‘Interstellar’ New York Premiere

Matthew McConaughey In Dolce & Gabbana and Camila Alves In Marchesa - 'Interstellar' New York Premiere

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves were back stateside for the ‘Interstellar’ New York premiere held at AMC Lincoln Square Theater on Monday (November 3) in New York City.

Matthew McConaughey: The actor wore a Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit again, but this time the fit was all wrong – just look how crumpled those trousers are – so the grey Salvatore Ferragamo overcoat was very welcome here.

Camila Alves: Looking gorgeous in Marchesa, her Fall 2014 look consisting of an embellished knit top and ruffled skirt was styled with a Marchesa Notte gunmetal clutch and the most gorgeous pair of Jerome C. Rousseau ‘Taboo’ black satin sandals. A beautiful retro wavy bob rounded out her look.

During this promo tour, Camila, despite not appearing in the movie, continues to work a leading lady wardrobe. Kudos to her for not fading into the backdrop.

Kirsten Dunst In Salvatore Ferragamo – The Today Show

Kirsten Dunst In Salvatore Ferragamo - The Today Show

Kirsten Dunst was spotting making her exit from a studio in New York City on Tuesday (September 16) following a guest appearance on ‘The Today Show’.

The actress wore a Salvatore Ferragamo LBD gathered at the waist and shoulders to give some definition to this simple design.

Opting for tonal accessories, the look was given a ladylike flourish with her Salvatore Ferragamo ‘Sofia’ crocodile top-handle bag with a silver ganico clasp.

Adding just a slight pop of colour via her matte rose-pink lip colour, the look was left simple and business-like with just a ring accessorizing this look.

Simple and chic or too office-like?

A group of guys grabbed some stares recently with their sartorial statements at a variety of events. Here, a look at the handsome offerings over the past few days—I couldn’t be more elated to not see a basic black suit in sight.

Channing Tatum: Looking hot and polished, the actor was at the HFPA & InStyle’s 2014 TIFF celebration during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival at the Windsor Arms Hotel. He definitely made that dark, midnight-blue three-piece suit look good.

Josh Lucas: Cutting a sharp profile at the ‘Boychoir’ premiere during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival at Roy Thomson Hall, Josh suited up in a Salvatore Ferragamo dark navy, two-button peak lapel suit, paired with a white button-down shirt, a navy patterned pocket square and brown calf shoes. Here, his decision to go tie-less worked in his favour—as did this stunning blue hue.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lizzy Caplan In Donna Karan Atelier, Emma Stone In Valentino Couture, Allison Williams In Giambattista Valli Couture & Nikolaj Coster-Waldau In Salvatore Ferragamo

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lizzy Caplan In Donna Karan Atelier, Emma Stone In Valentino Couture

It was a week where glamour came back to the red carpet, with the Emmy Awards and the Venice Film Festival, and it’s from those two events that you couldn’t separate your favourites.

Lizzy Caplan swept you away in her Donna Karan Atelier black and white gown and Emma Stone was breathtaking making her return to the red carpet with a new ‘do in Valentino Couture.

I, on the other hand, had narrowed my favourites down to four. After much deliberation I picked Allison Williams in her enchanting Giambattista Valli Couture gown, which may have been too princessey for some, but this look swept me away.

There were many fine gents in suits this week. Mostly all black, so how do you pick them apart?

By the impeccable tailoring, slight detailing – such as contrasting buttons, a pocket square and straight bow tie – and of course devilishly good looks play their part, so up steps Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Salvatore Ferragamo to collect his prize for the win.

2014 Emmy Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Emmy Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

While the constellation of actresses on the scene at the 2014 Emmy Awards had all of us focused on the range of red-carpet gowns and glam, there was plenty more eye candy to be had with the men in the mix at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday night (August 25).

Matthew McConaughey: Not one to ever be a shrinking violet, the ‘True Detective’ actor and nominee suited up in a bold blue Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit with contrasting black lapels, paired with Christian Louboutin ‘New Orleans’ flats, and a Bulgari watch and cufflinks. Was it my favourite look of his? Perhaps not. It even drew ‘A Night at the Roxbury’ comparisons among the Twitter-verse. But, with that handsome gaze, he can pull off anything.

Aaron Paul: The ‘Breaking Bad’ Emmy winner couldn’t have accepted his trophy in more classic fashion. He wore top-to-toe Prada in a black kid-mohair tuxedo, with a two-button notch-lapel design and velvet trim on the collar. A white smoking silk shirt, black bowtie and black spazzolato lace-up shoes, plus a Bulgari timepiece, completed the look.

Ty Burrell: Channeling his own blue mood, the ‘Modern Family’ Emmy winner wore a custom Todd Snyder tuxedo that was made especially for his big night. The Italian wool design was a collaborative effort between Ty, his stylist, Ilaria Urbinati, and the designer and boasts a unique shade of blue called ‘dusk,’ which nicely updates the tux from the more standard colourways of black and navy.
