Menswear Midweek Round Up

Chris Hemsworth: For the 50th Anniversary Wool Awards in Sydney on Tuesday, the Australian actor sported an Ermenegildo Zegna light-grey three-piece suit with notch lapels. He paired the well-cut suit with a white shirt, a matching patterned tie, and black leather boots. I prefer this finished look to his usual unbuttoned-shirt look.

Matthew McConaughey: After stepping out in a wildly perfect Vivienne Westwood MAN suit for the ‘Mud’ screening, Matthew returned to his usual brand in a Dolce & Gabbana classic black suit from the sartorial collection for an appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’. His conservative notch-lapel suit was finished off with a white shirt and black lace-up shoes. I liked the multicoloured suit more, but this was the perfect casual look for a late show.

Brad Goreski: Opting for a loud red carpet look, Bravo’s Brad Goreski wore a Ferragamo yellow double-breasted suit from the Spring 2013 collection for the 24th GLAAD Media Awards in LA on Saturday. It’s incredibly bright and features just one set of buttons, making it even more difficult to pull off. Brad is zany enough for it, but I don’t think it fit as well as it could have. It did go well with the light-blue tab-collar shirt and the green-and-yellow tie, though.

Olga Kurylenko In Salvatore Ferragamo – Extra

Olga Kurylenko In Salvatore Ferragamo - Extra

Olga Kurylenko filmed an appearance on the show ‘Extra’ at The Grove in Los Angeles yesterday.

The ‘Oblivion’ actress wore a structural Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2013 dress with shoes from the same collection.

This dress is definitely self-serving, in that its structural design and thick fabrication wouldn’t do anyone’s figure any favors. Fortunately, the lovely Olga would likely look good in a paper sack, and manages to pull this look off.

Her simplistic makeup and pony, along with the perfect shoe pairing makes this is a win for me. Do you agree? Or do you find the dress just too awkward to wear gracefully?

2013 Logie Awards

Logie Awards 1

A constellation of starlets came out to celebrate the small-screen at Aussie TV’s biggest night, the 2013 Logie Awards. The red carpet was on fire yesterday at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne, Australia, as gowns and glam took their starring roles.

Rebecca Judd: The model and TV presenter strutted out her svelte frame in a daring corseted creation by J’Aton Couture. The design duo behind J’Aton is a favourite of hers, as they also designed her wedding gown. But I wasn’t quite saying ‘I do’ to this number. With all the sheer chiffon paneling, glinting gold belt and the metallic netting, I could have done without the shoulder and sleeve detail—and that high ponytail ‘do.

Samara Weaving: ‘Red’ and ‘lace.’ When used together, they have the potential to commit the most serious of fashion sins. Not so on this Australian actress who was stunning in Steven Khalil, the designer darling of the Logies. With this sweeping gown and its tastefully see-through bodice, it’s not hard to see why.

Jesinta Campbell: The former Miss Universe Australia showed her pageant best in this glittery Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 midnight-blue gown. The criss-cross backside of the dress and the Lanvin chain reverse-necklace were far more intriguing than that ubiquitous plunge front. The clumsy black clutch didn’t fit in, and I would have liked to see Jesinta’s hair swept into a chic updo on this occasion.

Menswear Midweek Round Up

Menswear 4 april

Robert Downey Jr.: The ‘Iron Man 3′ promo tour was kick started with a press conference at the Conrad Hotel in South Korea on Thursday, for which Robert went monochromatic. Always doing things differently, he opted for a light-grey Ferragamo jacket featuring white trim on the edges, and too-long grey pants. I love that he wore sneakers with this look, which stays true to his quirky style, but I’ve never been on board with glitzy sneakers.

Gerard Butler: For the London premiere for ‘Olympus Has Fallen’, Gerard looked his usual dapper self clad in a grey Dolce & Gabbana suit with peak lapels. I like the simplicity of the look, with a grey tie that matches his suit and a classic white shirt, but the pants have too much break.

Aaron Eckhart: In a well-tailored navy suit, Aaron cleaned up handsomely when he joined his ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ co-star on the red carpet yesterday evening. Going with all blue, he matched the notch-lapel suit with a light-blue shirt and a blue tie. I love the all-blue look here on Aaron. Props for wearing pants that fit perfectly.

Nicolas Cage In Ferragamo & Ryan Reynolds In GANT Rugger – ‘The Croods’ New York Premiere

Nicolas Cage In Ferragamo & Ryan Reynolds In GANT Rugger - 'The Croods' New York Premiere

Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds joined Emma Stone and Blake Lively on the red carpet on Sunday afternoon at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 Theater in New York City for the premiere of ‘The Croods’. They both wore navy, but rocked two very different looks.

Nicolas Cage: Wearing a Ferragamo peak-lapel suit boded well for the 49-year-old actor. It featured two buttons – which shouldn’t both be buttoned – to which he added a simple white shirt. A pair of black lace-ups finished off the look. Nicolas kept it simple, which was smart. The suit fit him well and the trouser length was perfect. We have taken issue with several other actors in recent weeks wearing suits with pants that were way too long.

Ryan Reynolds: Ryan dressed down for the premiere, looking casual in Gant Rugger. His outfit, from the top down, consisted of a well-fitted three-button navy jacket over a deep-neck navy sweater with a shawl collar and slim-fit navy pinstripe pants. To break up the deep-blue hues, Ryan opted for a white crewneck shirt underneath his sweater and a pair of brown leather lace-ups. I liked the look because everything fit very nicely, but it may have been a bit too casual, even for a premiere for an animated movie. A suit sans tie probably would have made a better impression. Never thought I’d say this, but I wish Ryan had taken a tip from Nicolas Cage. Weird, I know.

All in all, both actors looked good. Their film ‘The Croods’ is set for release on March 22 in the US.
