2014 Met Gala Menswear Roundup

Met Gala Men 1The dress code at the 2014 Met Ball, themed ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ was “white tie,” which meant the guys were on their best glam behavior—at least most of them. Tuxes were spotted at every turn among the handsome hunks on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5). It takes a lot of sartorial strength to stand up to the rush of bustling, bold gowns that punctuate the evening, but let’s hear it for the men who made it work.

David Beckham: This hot topic was hotter than ever in a crisp, cool Ralph Lauren Black Label white shawl collar tuxedo jacket, black bow tie and black tuxedo pant. This is the way to rock formal wear, without a hit of fussiness. Swooning yet?

Douglas Booth
: The British actor took a regally traditional route, but put a refreshingly modern spin on his head-to-toe Burberry outing. He was positively dashing in a black tailcoat and dress trousers, worn with a white waistcoat, wing collar bib-front shirt, white bow tie and black loafers.

Andrew Garfield
: “The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ star looked sharp in silver, dressed in a Band of Outsiders metallic blazer with contrasting black shawl collar, paired with a white shirt, black bow tie and black tuxedo trousers. I love the touch of metal here.

Felicity Jones In Theory by Olivier Theyskens – 2014 Met Gala

Felicity Jones In Theory by Olivier Theyskens - 2014 Met Gala

Felicity Jones glided down the red carpet on Monday (May 5) in New York City for the 2014 Met Gala.

As we all know, the British actress likes to take a walk on the dark side; here she graduates from her favoured black to a rich deep emerald-green hue.

Her custom Theory by Olivier Theyskens bonded-silk gown with a sweetheart neckline and full skirt was styled with a matching clutch and Ana Khouri black-diamond, black-gold and black-pearl ‘Charlotte’ ring.

While I would’ve loved to have seen her in something with colour, and a chic updo, one can’t deny how breathtaking she looks in this gown.

Greta Gerwig In Theory by Olivier Theyskens – 2014 Met Gala

Greta Gerwig In Theory by Olivier Theyskens - 2014 Met Gala

Greta Gerwig brought some drama to the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

She wore a custom Theory by Olivier Theyskens black and white tonal gown featuring an asymmetrical sheer yoke, a lined flutter sleeve and a rise-and-fall hemline.

It was one of my favourites of the night, on a night where going big and stepping out of your comfort zone should be the norm.

Wearing a high, tight bun, she styled her look with cat-eyes, red lips, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Sergio Rossi satin platform pumps.

J’adore from head to toe.

Vera Farmiga In Theyskens’ Theory – 2013 Emmy Awards

Vera Farmiga In Theyskens' Theory - 2013 Emmy Awards

Vera Farmiga was one of the few who wore black at the 2013 Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday.

The actress donned a custom Theyskens’ Theory gown that had plenty of drama and volume – dare I say too much volume.

I was fascinated by the detailing, which included a leather-and-metal belt, leather panels, and a sexy open back that she styled with Fred Leighton jewels and a metallic box clutch. Under that skirt, she wore Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina Strass’ black satin pumps.

Yet more volume via her bouffant and a matte pink lip colour completed her look.

Is there too much going on or does she make it work?

Best Dressed of The Week – Olivia Wilde In Theyskens’ Theory, Kelly Chen In Dior and Josh Duhamel In Dolce & Gabbana

BDOTW

You crowned Olivia Wilde as your best dressed this week. She was back to her radiant best wearing a Theyskens’ Theory dress.

My pick was Kelly Chen. It’s not often that I use the words Dior and cool in the same sentence, but it definitely applied on this occasion.

As for the men, there was no contest. Josh Duhamel in his berry Dolce & Gabbana suit was a clear winner.
