Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the men who have taken to the red carpet on this very quiet week.

Richard Madden: The ‘Game of Thrones’ actor, who is Prince Charming to Lily James’ Cinderella, joined his co-star on the red carpet for the LA premiere on Sunday (March 1). He wore Dolce & Gabbana with fine details that make this tuxedo suit the flawless epitome of black-tie elegance, but it’s the blue eyes that really draw you in.

Dev Patel: The British actor attended ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Tuesday (March 3) in New York City. I love Dev for never opting for the classic, expected look. Like David Oyelowo, Dev is not afraid of colour or experimenting with different fabrications. On this occasion he wore a Salvatore Ferragamo tan corduroy notched-lapel suit, which on paper doesn’t appeal but in real life exemplifies the essence of sartorial dressing. This look did make me chuckle as it reminded me of the ‘Sex And The City’ episode where Steve asks Miranda, “What’s wrong with corduroy?” to which she replies, “I don’t have enough time to tell you what’s wrong with corduroy.” Dev proves that statement wrong.

Freida Pinto In Salvatore Ferragamo – Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2015 Show

Freida Pinto In Salvatore Ferragamo - Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2015 Show

Freida Pinto attended the Salvatore Ferragamo show during Milan Fashion Week Fall 2015 on Sunday (March 1) in Milan, Italy.

We all know the Indian beauty for her love for colour, but on this occasion she smouldered wearing all black.

Her Spring 2015 halter dress rendered in a fine pattern is a simple piece that makes for a timelessly classic look with round-the-clock chic appeal.

I adore the dark cherry lip, which adds a vampy vibe, and the black and white Ferragamo pumps, which enhance the classicism of the look.

2015 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscar men

The men were out in force at the 2015 Oscars and the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where there was plenty of handsome inspiration to go around from a fine group of fellows.

Jared Leto: Getting the evening started on a non-traditional note, the actor and musician was every bit the unorthodox Academy Awards dresser in his baby-blue Givenchy tux, accented by a white bowtie and white lug sole shoes. He let his hair down literally and made no excuses for it, saying that the Oscars was his going-away party for his locks. I wonder if the beard was also included in that party. While no one could pull this off like Jared, between the mane and the male pastels, this was verging on almost too much too handle.

Chris Pine: A stark contrast to Jared, Chris went for the all-out traditionally classic route and suited up in a Giorgio Armani black double-breasted peak-lapel tuxedo. It was impeccable and goes to show what transformative power a well-tailored tux can have.

David Oyelowo: Looking as if he was inspired by the red carpet itself, the ‘Selma’ actor dressed to impress in a crimson Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo word with #TackleEbola handcrafted pin by Jason of Beverly Hills. He does a great job pulling off this colour, yet I’m not completely sold on the satiny look of the vest and bowtie underneath.

Megan Fox In Salvatore Ferragamo – ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Tokyo Premiere

Megan Fox In Salvatore Ferragamo  - 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Tokyo Premiere

Following the Berlin premiere for ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ back in October, I made the assumption that this promo tour had come to an end.

It turns out I was wrong as Megan Fox returned to the red carpet this evening for the Toyko premiere.

The actress, wearing only her second full-length dress of this promo tour, donned a Salvatore Ferragamo purple satin halter gown with matching bralette.

Styled with Eva Fehren jewels, this alluring look also a hint of déjà vu.

Because of the purple hue I was taken back to the 2009 ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ world premiere, where she rocked a sexy Donna Karan off-the-shoulder gown which I still rank as her best look of all time.

As it was then, this gown has BDOTW written all over it.

Do you agree?

2015 SAG Awards Menswear Roundup

Men SAG 1

We’ve seen all the ladies, so here is a quick roundup of some of the other attendees of the 2015 SAG Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (January 25) in Los Angeles, California.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau: Looking ever so handsome, the ‘Game of Thrones’ actor wore a Salvatore Ferragamo three-piece black tuxedo, white tuxedo shirt and black satin bow tie.

Eddie Redmayne: The award-winning British actor never has an off day. Last night he looked very dapper wearing a double-breasted Prada suit with shiny patent-leather shoes.

Matthew McConaughey: Keeping up his snazzy blazer run from last awards season, the actor wore a Brioni suit with a blue sheen blazer, which certainty stood out in a sea of black tuxedos. The look was styled with Tod’s shoes.
