Red Carpet Fashion Awards

2013 BET Awards Menswear Round Up

Fashionable (and fearless) femmes kept the red-carpet hot at the 2013 BET Awards, hosted last night at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California. But, amid the sparkle and the skin, the guys brought their own brand of flash.

Pharrell Williams: The rapper didn’t blur any lines with his straight-laced style, cleaning up in a charcoal-grey Lanvin look that featured a shrunken blazer worn over a black-and-white chequerboard shirt and festooned with a perky bow tie. Yes, the rolled and tapered pant legs could have been better tailored, but with his cocky cool-kid shades, Pharrell could pull off almost anything.

Miguel: The best male R&B pop artist winner swooped onto the red carpet flaunting a trendster McQ Alexander McQueen monochromatic ensemble. His swallow-print McQ shirt was slightly Hitchcock-ian. But he tamed the chaotic birds by tucking them into skinny black jeans, all topped off with a quiff and studded lace-up shoes.

Justin Timberlake: JT took a sleek, all-black approach for his star-studded stage time with Pharrell and Snoop Dogg, as the song-and-dance man worked a textured Tom Ford suit and satin bow-tie paired with Christian Louboutin ‘New Orleans Flat’ black patent leather lace-up dress shoes.

Best Dressed Of The Week - Sandra Bullock In Prabal Gurung, Armie Hammer In Tom Ford & David Gandy

Sandra Bullock secured an easy best dressed win this week wearing a purple hued Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2013 frock.

It was one of her best looks on this tour so far. It was a super chic look, plus we were all glad it wasn’t another black frock.

Our menswear choices differed.

You selected the always well-dressed, handsome model; David Gandy, while I opted for Armie Hammer’s Tom Ford suit.

Like Sandy, he didn’t go for the norm; selecting a pale-pink summery suit styled with a sleek maroon tie.

Hopefully the trend for more colourful options when it comes to men’s suits will continue.

Armie Hammer In Tom Ford & Johnny Depp In Ralph Lauren - 'The Lone Ranger' LA Premiere

Here is a look at Armie Hammer’s and Johnny Depp’s outfits, which they wore on the red carpet for the ‘Lone Ranger’ LA premiere on Saturday evening.

Armie Hammer: Of course, the handsome actor, wearing a pale pink Tom Ford linen suit, was the first to catch my eye. Finally, there is an actor who is not afraid to step out of the narrow, black, grey and navy box. As they say, ‘real men wear pink,’ and while that usually stops at a pink shirt, I have to say I love this pink perfect-for-summer suit styled with a white dress shirt and maroon tie.

Johnny Depp: I like that the actor scrubbed up on this occasion as he often looks like he just stepped off the set of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. He wore a smart Ralph Lauren pinstriped navy three-piece suit. Signature styling of tinted sunglasses, a pendant necklace, and key chain adornment completed his look.

Madonna In Dolce & Gabbana - 'Madonna The MDNA Tour' Screening

Madonna attended the Dolce & Gabbana and The Cinema Society screening of the Epix world premiere of ‘Madonna: The MDNA Tour’ at The Paris Theatre in New York City on Tuesday evening.

Ensuring that no one would upstage her at her own event, the singer wore a Tom Ford three-piece suit accented with David Yurman black-onyx and diamond cufflinks.

The suit was styled with an ivory waistcoat and bow-tie, complete with a chic top hat and yellow flower pinned to her lapel.

I’m not sure if it was an ode to Michael Jackson, but Madonna wore a Jacob & Co. diamond mesh glove which features over 17 carats of round white diamonds set into a white-gold mesh design.

A faux bob and bold red lip colour completed her look.

I have to say it’s one of the best suits we’ve seen this week. Does she deserve a place in the BDOTW menswear poll, or is this look too gimmicky for you?

Jennifer Lopez In Tom Ford  - 4th Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala New York

Jennifer Lopez was looking her divalicious best on the red carpet at The Plaza Hotel in New York City on Thursday evening for the 4th Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala New York.

The actress/singer showed off her gorgeous curves wearing an electric-blue sequined Tom Ford Spring 2011 high-neck gown, which she styled with a black Thalé Blanc ‘Talia Fasteux’ python clutch and Harry Winston jewels.

Giving her fiercest sexy face glare, JLo completed her look with neutral makeup and a slicked-back ponytail.

I haven’t been the biggest fan of Jennifer’s choices recently; however, this is more like the JLo I know and love.

The only thing that takes the gloss off this look somewhat is the fact that this dress has been worn twice before – by Lily Cole and Liberty Ross.

'Man of Steel' London Premiere Menswear Round Up

The male stars of ‘Man of Steel’ joined Amy Adams and Antje Traue on the red carpet this evening at the Odeon Leicester Square for the London premiere.

Henry Cavill: The British actor opted to wear yet another Tom Ford suit, this time donning a midnight-blue Prince of Wales check three-piece suit styled with a matching tie and white dress shirt. Many of you were able to see beyond his dashing good looks to notice that his previous look didn’t fit perfectly. While I wouldn’t class this as perfect, I think the overall look is much improved.

Michael Shannon: The actor wore a white pocket square from The Tie Bar with his Thomas Pink grey Prince of Wales ‘Weatherly’ suit, which was styled with a white shirt and cufflinks by the same brand. Due to the pant length and shape of his Allen Edmond loafers, we can see Michael’s colourful purple socks by Happy Socks. It appears that Michael likes to add a pop of colour to his look. Last time it was a white sole on his shoes; this time it’s socks.

Russell Crowe: The Australian actor was the only one who wore a coat. The black overcoat was worn with an ink-blue two-button suit and light-blue shirt, which he again opted to wear sans tie.
