Gina Carano's 'Fast & Furious 6' Promo Tour

The ‘Fast & Furious 6’ had its final stop on its world tour yesterday evening in Universal City, California. One of the main stars, Gina Carano, had three great looks during the tour.

London Premiere: Earlier this month, Gina was in London, saluting our fine city wearing a look from the Vivienne Westwood Couture collection which was custom made for the actress. The signature gunmetal-blue sequin gown was styled with an ombre top knot and palladium jewels.

Manila Premiere: The second stop was the Philippines, where Gina wore a Tom Ford bias-cut black gown with a high-low hemline styled with black-and-gold Givenchy sandals, an Amanda Pearl clutch and Melinda Maria earrings.

LA Premiere: Going out with a bang, Gina’s gorgeous curves were showcased wearing a white Amanda Wakeley plunging gown with gunmetal beaded embellishments and a high-low hem with a layered train. With the risen hemline we were able to take a gander at her gunmetal Rupert Sanderson sandals, which perfectly complemented the beaded details on her gown, as did her Christian Louboutin silver fishnet clutch and Dana Rebecca Designs and palladium jewels.

The Burberry is a simple yet elegant gown. The Westwood is nothing we haven’t seen before, even though I love the look, so my favourite here is the Amanda Wakeley. It’s the most unique of the three, it’s soft and feminine with an edge, plus it has reignited my love for embellishments.

British Academy Television Awards 2013 Menswear

There were also many bespoke-suit-wearing blokes who took to the red carpet on Sunday evening for the British Academy Television Awards 2013, held at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Jamie Redknapp: We of course have to start with the very handsome Jamie, who joined his beautiful wife Louise at this event. The former footballer, who still retains his boyish good looks, wore a Thom Sweeney bespoke midnight blue mohair three-piece suit featuring a shawl lapel, with a white dress shirt and a bow tie. You may remember that Luke Evans wore a suit by the same designer with a similar low-cut waistcoat to the ‘Fast & Furious 6’ world premiere last week.

Dermot O’Leary: Opting for a much smaller bow tie, Dermot O’Leary selected a two-piece Rake midnight-blue suit with a black satin shawl collar, styled with a white dress shirt and white pocket square.

Damien Lewis: The actor, who joined his wife Helen McCrory on the red carpet, wore a two-button suit with slim-fit pants from his go-to brand Burberry. Unlike some of the guys, who selected white pocket squares at this event, Damien opted for black.

Model @ The 2013 Met Gala

Here is a roundup of the models who took to the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night.

Cara Delevingne: Wearing Burberry, the British model nailed the theme, working a studded navy column dress with a plunging neckline. Her part-braided ‘do and studded clutch perfected her look. She was easily one of the best on the night.

Gisele Bundchen: The model wore an Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 black mini dress with revealing grommet detailing. You slammed Gwyneth for wearing a gown with sheer sides; does Gisele get a pass?

Karlie Kloss: I never thought I would say this about Karlie: she looks frumpy. Ever since she chopped off her locks she has lost her mojo. This Louis Vuitton granny-chic look ages her about 40 years. Betty White would look better in this frock.

Met Men

To celebrate the new ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday, some of the biggest celebs walked down the red carpet. In honour of the exhibit, many of the men chose to give their formal looks a bit of punk inspiration, which made for an exciting menswear event.

Eddie Redmayne: The red carpet phenom added another beautiful look to his collection, wearing a Dior Homme navy-blue wool tuxedo with black grosgrain peak lapels. As always, it fit just right. To finish it off, Eddie added a white cotton shirt, a black satin bow tie, a white pocket square, and black patent-leather derbies.

Frank Ocean: In a Givenchy black tuxedo, Frank looked incredibly dapper for the event. His two-button notch-lapel tux fit well and he paired it classically with a white shirt and black bow tie. To give the outfit a little kick of punk, Frank opted for shoes with silver studs going around the soles – a very cool addition.

Joshua Jackson: I’ve never been OK with wearing a red tie to a red carpet event. It’s cheesy. I don’t like that aspect of his outfit, but I love the beige linen lapels on his Dior Homme black suit. Even though it’s a small detail on his jacket, it made for a stylish look. Joshua topped it off with a white cotton shirt and a Chanel ‘J12 Black Matte Ceramic’ watch.

‘The Great Gatsby’ World Premiere Menswear Round Up

The gents weren’t about to be left in the shade for the world premiere of ‘The Great Gatsby’ last night.

Leonardo DiCaprio: I was swooning when Leo took to the red carpet looking sharp in a baltico-blue Prada two-button notched-lapel suit. Keeping the look classic with a white dress shirt, navy silk tie, and black lace-up shoes, all by Prada, I did wonder why he didn’t take his pants up a few inches. They are way too long but this appears to be a continual thing on the red carpet when it comes to menswear.

Tobey Maguire: The actor joined co-star Leonardo DiCaprio by also opting for a classic dark-coloured suit by Saint Laurent. His wife, Jennifer Meyer, cozied up to her hubby wearing a look from the Saint Laurent Fall 2013 collection. Her babydoll floral-embroidered dress featuring a white collar and black velvet tie translates rather nicely on the red carpet. She added the celebrity favourite Saint Laurent ‘Betty’ bag and black Alaïa embellished suede sandals to her look.

Jay Z: As the music and executive producer for ‘The Great Gatsby’, the rapper took to the red carpet to celebrate this part in the movie wearing a Tom Ford suit, not surprisingly. His two-button notched-lapel charcoal checked suit fit perfectly. Looking fresh to death, Jay added a taupe tie to his white dress shirt, completing his look with formal black shoes.

Joel Edgerton: The actor lightened things up, wearing an Ermenegildo Zegna two-button notched-lapel grey suit, styled with a white shirt and purple tie. In a sea of dark suits, this light-grey look was very refreshing; however, I have to say that Tobey is my favourite here.

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel In Tom Ford - 2013 Time 100 Gala

Mr and Mrs Timberlake attended the 2013 Time 100 Gala held at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening; both were decked out in Tom Ford, of course.

Justin Timberlake: The actor opted for a shawl-collar patterned Tom Ford tuxedo jacket with plain black pants and a white dress shirt. I always find bow ties particularly charming, as formal as they are.

Jessica Biel: Managing to sidestep the hideous Tom Ford Fall 2013 collection, the actress kept it simple, and sequin and animal-print free, wearing a black Tom Ford dress with asymmetrical lines and a satin draped detail falling from the hip. Her black-and-gold-tone shoes and clutch were both Tom Ford, with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a half-up, half-down hairstyle completing her look.

Do you see anyone wearing the Tom Ford Fall 2013 collection?

Menswear 9 April 2013

Nick Cannon: The host of ‘America’s Got Talent’ joined Heidi Klum on the red carpet at the Rockefeller Center for the New York auditions. Going for a dapper look wearing a two-piece Vivienne Westwood Man suit, I find myself being bothered by the fit of the pants. The blazer features an insert waistcoat, giving the look a smart but trendy feel with a gold chain and button closure He styled his suit with a grey floral brooch, a lavender shirt, a blue printed tie with a tie pin, and grey shoes.

Robert Downing Jr.: The actor is still in Asia promoting the third installment of the ‘Iron Man’ franchise. On this occasion, he attended a photocall in Beijing, China wearing a Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2013 burgundy cotton two-button notch lapel suit. Aside from the obligatory sneakers by Lanvin, this was a surprisingly quirk-free look. I love the colour; the complementary CK shirt and purple tinted glasses help make this one of his best looks so far on this tour.

Alexander Skarsgard: The handsome actor joined Paula Patton on the red carpet last night for the ‘Disconnect’ New York screening. I have one word for Alexander in this Calvin Klein grey suit and black shirt: swoon.
