Menswear Red Carpet Roundup


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.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 1

Here is a quick roundup of the guys who have taken to the red carpet this week.

Michael Fassbender: The actor joined Maggie Gyllenhaal on the red carpet on Monday (August 5) for the New York premiere of ‘Frank’. His casual look consisted of a navy Burberry Tailoring blazer, which smartened up his grey tee and jeans combo.

Will Arnett: So you didn’t like the white suit, but that didn’t deter Will from turning to Salvatore Ferragamo again for his red carpet look. He joined Megan Fox on the red carpet for the New York premiere of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ wearing a musk-green notch-lapel suit with a navy dress shirt. The loafer-style shoes work perfectly on this occasion, both in style and colour.

Kellan Lutz: There was yet more swoon upon seeing the actor in Marbella, Spain for ‘The Expendables 3’ premiere, where Kellan was decked out in a Ferragamo blueberry suit with pops of red via his houndstooth tie, pocket square and socks.

Will Arnett In Salvatore Ferragamo – ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ LA Premiere

Will Arnett In Salvatore Ferragamo - ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ LA Premiere

Will Arnett joined his gorgeous co-star Megan Fox for the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ premiere held at the Regency Village Theatre on Sunday (August 3) in Westwood, California.

The actor wore a Salvatore Ferragamo white linen two-button notched-lapel suit styled with a light-blue button-down shirt and mahogany leather Ferragamo shoes with silver detailing.

It’s not often we see guys wear a white suit on the red carpet, perhaps due to the obvious comparison to John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

I have to say, he wears the look well. Linen is bound to crease so I will put that aside; however, the shoes would’ve been preferred in a lighter hue.

Do you think Will pulls off this white Ferragamo suit?

Menswear Weekend Roundup


Over the weekend, a handful of men were out and about in a range of eclectic and colourful ensembles. The traditional suit was completely missing in action among this group of guys, who were none too afraid to push the envelope beyond basic black.

David Gandy: The model was ever so dapper in his Marks & Spencer Best Of British Collection ensemble when he attended the One For The Boys Charity Ball during the London Collections: Men. With that steely stare, this handsome hot topic can pull off this hyper-tailored, three-piece suit including a plaid sport coat, white vest and dark pleated pants.

Kellan Lutz: At the 2014 MuchMusic Awards in Toronto, Canada, the actor hit the red carpet in a burgundy Ermenegildo Zegna two-button, notch lapel suit. His maroon tie may have been a bit askance, but it’s hard to argue with this eggplant-hued statement.

Luke Evans: Making quite the impression, Luke may have even out-dressed David at the One For the Boys Charity Ball. His Fendi Spring 2014 statement featured a chaotic pattern of blue and charcoal lines, which he complemented with a navy tie and patent blue, rubber-soled loafers. Too loud?
