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

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of all the guys who took to the red carpet for various events last weekend, including Comic-Con and the Young Hollywood Awards.

Douglas Booth: The handsome British actor wore a smart-casual Polo Ralph Lauren look consisting of a khaki linen sport jacket, mint-green chinos, and a simple white tee and pocket square. The contrasting pair of navy suede brogues don’t ruin the look, but some tan loafers would’ve been preferred here.

Ansel Elgort: Brown, auburn, cinnamon, mud… call Ansel’s Prada Uomo Fall 2014 two-button lapel suit whatever colour you like. I am only getting through this by focusing on the tie. He can do so much better.

Eddie Redmayne: The always impeccably dressed actor wore a micro-checked blue and white suit with navy accents, including slippers which I would’ve swapped out for those nice navy Alexander McQueen loafers he wore during awards season.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Rooney Mara In Lanvin & Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood & Todd Snyder

Best Dressed Of The Week - Rooney Mara In Lanvin & Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood & Todd Snyder

For the second week in a row, we picked the same best dressed.

As much as I was longing to give this win to Anna Kendrick, Rooney Mara’s Lanvin white sculptural gown was breathtaking: the only look to give me goosebumps this week.

Bradley Cooper’s Vivienne Westwood Man/Todd Snyder rugged sexy grey winter look stood out for me even though blue seemed to be the menswear trend of last week.

Bradley Cooper In Todd Snyder, Tommy Hilfiger and Vivienne Westwood – ‘American Hustle’ New York Promo Tour

Bradley Cooper In Todd Snyder, Tommy Hilfiger and Vivienne Westwood - 'American Hustle' New York Promo TourBradley Cooper made the rounds this past weekend in New York City, as he promoted his new film, ‘American Hustle.’ He rocked appropriately dapper, cold-weather looks. But, let’s face it, one flash of those baby blues was all he really needed. Luckily, his ensembles only enhanced those eyes.

‘American Hustle’ New York Screening After Party: For Friday’s after party at the Monkey Bar, the actor buttoned up in a sharp, navy Tommy Hilfiger trench coat. Underneath, he was lumberjack-handsome in a red-and-navy plaid Todd Snyder shirt, khaki-coloured Diesel chinos and Red Wing boots.

‘American Hustle’ New York Screening: At the screening, held Sunday at the Ziegfeld Theatre, Bradley showed even more sartorial flair in his Vivienne Westwood Man steely-grey overcoat with a contrasting brown fur collar. Once he removed the coat, he looked just as cool in a Todd Snyder charcoal-grey flannel suit, worn with a white dress shirt and blue-striped tie, along with the same Red Wing boots for a casual edge.

GQ Men Of The Year Party

GQ Men Of The Year PartyIt’s no surprise that Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o weren’t the only ones cutting handsome—and pretty—profiles at the GQ 2013 ‘Men of the Year’ party, hosted last night in Los Angeles, California. There was plenty more eye candy to spare.

James Van Der Beek: The actor brought out his own baby blues in a Todd Snyder ensemble, ratcheting up his grey plaid suit with a blue shirt, lighter tie and mixed-print pocket square. The grand finale of the look, though, were those blue shoelaces on his brown loafers.

Darby Stanchfield: Decked out in a burgundy-red Emilio De La Morena Fall 2012 gown, the ‘Scandal’ star mixed sophistication and edginess with this streamlined, lacquered-bodice dress, which actually set off her slicked-back, flame-toned locks. You may remember Julianne Hough previously wore this gown.

Chace Crawford: The actor opted for a light dove-grey, wool two-button small notch lapel suit by Dior Homme, which he wore with a white cotton, button-down shirt, black silk tie and black leather derbies. Something about the suit wasn’t as sizzling as his stare.

2013 Emmy Awards Menswear Roundup

Emmy Men 1

Enough about the girls at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards; the boys brought out their own brand of style for Sunday’s star-studded night at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Zachary Quinto: The ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ star suited up in a dark Givenchy ensemble, wearing his black-on-black piped tux with a charcoal tie and pocket square—and a suave stare.

Derek Hough: The ‘Dancing With The Stars’ pro and an Emmy winner for Outstanding Choreography accepted his trophy in style in a classic black tuxedo and bow tie. The dancing shoes were exchanged for classic black loafers on this occasion.

Bobby Cannavale: The ‘Boardwalk Empire’ actor accompanied his date, Rose Byrne, in complementary style with a classic, fitted Calvin Klein Fall 2013 black matte wool one-button peak lapel tuxedo with black satin lapels, paired with a white dress shirt and black tie—which also served him well on stage when he accepted his Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor.
