Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 25 Feb

Between premieres and the Elle Style Awards, there was a lot of man candy on the red carpet last night.

Will Smith: Looking as sharp as ever, the actor joined his wife Jada Pinkett Smith on the red carpet for the ‘Focus’ LA premiere wearing a striped three-piece suit working a divine combo of navy and lilac.

Lewis Hamilton: The Formula 1 racing driver wore a rich burgundy suit from Marni’s Spring 2015 collection, taking styling notes from Tinie Tempah and opting for cropped trousers that showed off his Cesare Casadei black moccasins. I’m not sure if this looks cool or comical. Cool from the calves up methinks.

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.

Menswear Midweek Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Midweek Red Carpet Roundup 14 jan

Here is a quick menswear roundup starting in Washington, crossing to London and heading back stateside to New York.

Bradley Cooper: While his co-star Sienna Miller was promoting their new movie ‘American Sniper’ in New York, Bradley was attending the premiere held at the Burke Theater at the US Navy Memorial in Washington DC on Tuesday (January 13). The actor was looking very sharp in a Thom Sweeney grey flannel suit styled with a thick navy tie and shiny patent-leather lace-ups.

David Gandy: The words David Gandy and dapper go hand in hand. He was looking mighty fine in London on Monday afternoon (January 12) ahead of the Burberry Prorsum London Collections: Men Fall 2015 show. Decked out in a mustard three-piece windowpane suit styled with blue shirt and striped tie, I was very much on the fence when it came to the hat, but the styling grew on me quite quickly because, let’s face it, he can pull just about anything off.

Chris Hemsworth: The actor made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, taped at the Rockefeller Center on Tuesday (January 13) in New York City, to promote his latest movie, ‘Blackhat’. Before being soaked with water by the host, the actor was looking as handsome as ever wearing a grey windowpane suit sans tie, which was beautifully tailored for a streamlined fit.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 5 december

Here is quick round-up of gents who took to the red carpet yesterday evening (December 4).

James Marsden:
The handsome actor attended the 2014 GQ Men of the Year party held at the at the Chateau Marmont in LA looking sharp wearing a Thom Sweeney navy mohair three-piece suit. Aside from by hypnotized by that rich navy hue, I’m also saluting the mix of burgundy and brown incorporated into this look. There is never a dull moment in menswear when James is around.

Richard Armitage: The actor suited up for the Paris premiere of ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’, held at Le Grand Rex on Thursday (December 4). Opting for the sartorial elegance of Ermenegildo Zegna once again, this time he looked even more dashing in a burgundy shawl-collar suit styled with a grey shirt and brown striped tie.

David Gandy & Jamie Redknapp In Thom Sweeney – Thom Sweeney Store Opening

David Gandy & Jamie Redknapp In Thom Sweeney

Thom Sweeney has been the go-to designer for British celebs both home and abroad, plus the likes of the well-dressed James Marsden have also been spotted donning the designer’s well-tailored suits.

Last night (November 13) a few of Thom’s fans joined him for the opening of his new Ready to Wear & Made to Measure Store in located at 33A Bruton Place, London, England.

David Gandy: Always topping best-dressed lists, he is likely to achieve that feat once again wearing a Thom Sweeney light-grey double-breasted suit, light-blue cotton shirt and speckled charcoal wool tie. Yes, I did swoon, firstly at the overall sheer magnitude of how impeccable he looks, and secondly because I got lost in those blue eyes.

Jamie Redknapp: Always well-dressed and often in Thom Sweeney, I was not surprised to see the former soccer star in attendance with his Isabel Marant-clad wife, Louise Redknapp. While she opted for a more laidback look which including an Isabel Marant embellished wool jacket which is to die for, he looked as sharp as ever wearing a Thom Sweeney dark-grey single-breasted suit styled with a light-blue cotton button-down shirt and a dark-green tie.

Dilemmas, dilemmas, who wore it best? I’m gonna flip a coin for this one.
