Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

A couple of premieres have brought the men to the red carpet yesterday.

Donald Glover: For FX’s premiere of ‘Atlanta Robbin’ Season’ on Monday (February 19), the actor impressed in a Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2018 ensemble that was a handsome alternative to the standard suit. I especially love the buttery, dark-mustard leather jacket here, as it looks so richly suave on Donald.

Joel Edgerton: Joining Jennifer Lawrence, Tallia Storm and Joely Richardson at the ‘Red Sparrow’ London premiere on Monday (February 19), Joel held his own in a Brunello Cucinelli pinstripe suit. However, I did question the length of the pants with his heavy-handed, lace-up shoes, as they seemed such a departure from the more classic, sophisticated tones of the suit.

Lakeith Stanfield: In contrast to Donald’s preppy-sleek look, Lakeith went for a tough-punk vibe at the ‘Atlanta Robbin’ Season’ premiere. The heavy-duty, studded Julien Macdonald Spring 2017 vest was the star attraction, but I have to think that the mask seen around his neck was paying even more direct homage to the crime-filled premise of the show.

Alexandra Daddario In Salvatore Ferragamo – 2018 amfAR Gala New York

Alexandra Daddario joined a host of gorgeous gals on the red carpet for the 2018 amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday (February 7).

Now this Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2018 embellished gown isn’t daring by most standards, but for Alexandra this felt like a leap outside her comfort-zone as she tends to stick to simple, clean-cut, classic designs.

I love the artistic effect of the shimmering sequins, but the purple velvet Salvatore Ferragamo minaudière didn’t quite work for me here.

The intensity of the look was amped up with the kohl-rimmed eyes.

2018 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup

The men brought their fashion game to the 60th anniversary of the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City.

Zayn Malik: Zayn was dressed to the nines in this mauve Richard James Spring 2018 suit. It was an unexpected hue that I loved on the singer, especially with his graphic twist on the white rose and his patterned socks.

John Legend:
The singer cut a handsome profile in this Burberry double-breasted tuxedo styled with Chopard cufflinks. I liked this sleek midnight-blue deviation from the standard black tux.

Neyo: The rapper was styling and profiling in a Grayscale suit that was boldly striking by virtue of its goldenrod, velvet jacket in which the white #TimesUp rose was the perfect counterpart.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

From awards galas to premieres and more, there were plenty of occasions for the men to be out in force on the red carpet. Here’s a look at the men who have been front and centre.

Justin Timberlake: Proving that the velvet trend isn’t just for the ladies, Justin cut a thoroughly suave profile in this dark-green velvet Tom Ford tuxedo at the 9th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday (November 11) in Hollywood. I love this luxe twist on the classic tux.

Jason Momoa: Although his styling may have been more in the manner of edgy-bohemian, Jason’s custom Valentino tuxedo was quite smooth and polished at the ‘Justice League’ LA premiere on Monday (November 13).

Jared Leto: It’s Jared Leto and it’s an MTV event, so it’s only natural that he would go sartorially wild at the 2017 MTV EMAs on Sunday (November 12) in London with his latest Gucci endeavor—a Fall 2017 look that was even more subversively rebellious than the runway presentation. The colour discord between the lavender, bubblegum, and red track pants made me want to shield my eyes—and we haven’t even gotten to the tidy-whitey sneakers.

SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The red carpet was alight with stylish stars at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards on Thursday (November 9) in Beverly Hills, California.

Kristen Bell: It may be autumn, but the actress kept the spring spirit alive in a Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2017 dress. The yellow and blue blooms had an ebullient mood which was enhanced with Jennifer Meyer jewels and white heels.

Andrew Garfield: Cutting a dapper figure, the ‘Breathe’ actor broke away from coordinates, pairing a brown and navy check jacket with slim navy trousers. A dark blue sweater completed the ensemble, presenting a modern alternative to a suit and tie.

Tracee Ellis Ross: The ‘Black-ish’ actress’s love of fashion is apparent in many of her outfits, including this vintage Pierre Balmain dress from Shrimpton Couture. She committed to the glamorous retro theme with red Christian Louboutin pumps and a Les Petits Joueurs bag.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is the final menswear roundup of the week.

Johnny Depp: Joining a stellar cast of gorgeous actresses for the ‘Murder On The Orient Express’ world premiere, the actor cleaned up his act; bringing his A-game to the red carpet. While look had a typically laid-back approach with the undone bow-tie, I was delighted to see Johnny has finally stopped dressing like Jack Sparrow.

John Boyega: The actor was looking very dapper as always collecting this Vanguard Award during the SCAD Savannah Film Festival wearing Burberry. I don’t think I’ve seen a finer suit this week. From the cut, fit and trouser length, everything is on point here.

Leslie Odom Jr.: Going slightly less formal sans tie in Prada for the ‘Murder On The Orient Express’ world premiere, the actor still presented a very smart impression. Double breasted blazers aren’t the easiest to pull off, however, the look fits Leslie’s stocky frame perfectly. I love how the dual-colour Jimmy Choo ‘Penn’ shoes added a touch of flare.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

A trio of men have been making the rounds lately, each with his own version of sophisticated style.

Chris Hemsworth: At the ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ New York City screening on Monday (October 30), Chris continued to show his penchant for relaxed-suave appeal in this Dolce & Gabbana suit, yet again skipping a tie in favour of the partially unbuttoned dress shirt.

Eddie Redmayne: It was a Valentino double feature for Eddie and wife, Hannah Bagshawe, at the OMEGA Aqua Terra on Saturday (October 28) in Venice, Italy. He was impossibly dapper in a rich midnight-blue Valentino suit from the Fall 2017 collection that I loved not only for its colour but also for its fresh precision and skinny variation on a bow tie. Hannah, who recently confirmed she’s expecting their second child, was glowing in a Valentino Resort 2018 feminine ruffle dress.
