MTV Video Music Awards Menswear Roundup

MTV Video Music Awards Menswear Roundup

Lest you think last night’s 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA were all about the ladies, a few men sauntered out their style profiles too at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

Nick Jonas: The singer represented for the former Jonas Brothers, looking sharp in a lively Vivienne Westwood MAN navy windowpane waistcoat jacket and vest. Not taking the outfit too seriously, he wore slouchy black denim and black boots which offset the more buttoned-up effect of that riff on a period jacket.

Common: Also in Vivienne Westwood MAN, the rapper brought plenty of attitude to the evening with his brown sweater, complete with leather-look sleeves, black jeans and a pair of statement shades. He wouldn’t have been out of place on the ‘Star Trek’ set.

Sam Smith: Before taking to the VMAs stage for a soulful rendition of ‘Stay With Me,’ Sam was on the red carpet. His Gucci navy notch-lapel, two-button Signoria three-piece suit, worn tie-less with a white evening shirt and brown leather monk strap shoes, may not be the most memorable, but his performance most certainly was.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Coco Rocha in Christian Siriano & Hilary Rhoda in J. Mendel

BDOTW 9 June

Coco Rocha was your best dressed this week, donning a Christian Siriano Resort 2014 gown with a Heather-Huey-designed hat.

My pick was Hilary Rhoda. She can pretty much do no wrong on the red carpet, and wearing one of my favourite looks from J. Mendel’s Spring 2014 collection was one sure-fire way to seal this win.

David Gandy was your favourite fella to take the red carpet last week, looking dapper as always in his three-piece suit, while Zachary Levi’s two-tone Vivienne Westwood Man suit stood out for me.

Menswear Roundup

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Channing Tatum: The actor attended the New York screening of ’22 Jump Street’ on Wednesday (June 4) wearing an Armani grey checked suit styled with a grey shirt and tie plus black Kurt Geiger ‘Grant’ shoes.

Zachary Levi: The actor attended the Theatre World Awards on Monday (June 2) wearing a two-tone moss-green Vivienne Westwood Man Fall 2014 suit styled with a white shirt, green tie and brown patent-leather shoes. I love Westwood’s classic suits with a twist.

Ansel Elgort: The young actor joined his co-star Shailene Woodley for ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ New York premiere wearing a Prada Uomo Fall 2014 suit. I love the colours here, marrying denim-blue with two shades of rose-pink.

29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival Menswear Roundup

29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival Menswear Roundup

Michael B. Jordan and Jared Leto joined Brie Larson at the 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where they were honoured with the Virtuosos Award at an event held at the Arlington Theatre on Tuesday (February 4) in Santa Barbara, California.

Michael B. Jordan: Embracing a more colourful stance when it comes to red carpet dressing, the actor donned a vivid-blue Vivienne Westwood Man suit styled with a brown shirt, black tie, black Christian Louboutin flats and his Piaget timepiece. The brown shirt took a while to grow on me, but overall this is yet another standout look from the dapper actor, who continues to keep menswear varied and interesting; however, I have a feeling it might not be all too well received by some.

Jared Leto: The actor couldn’t be more opposite, wearing a laidback all-black look consisting of leather pants, a black overcoat, black shirt and Zadig & Voltaire ‘Joe’ boots.

Do you prefer Michael’s spritely approach, or Jared’s cool all-black chilled look?

Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood Man – ‘American Hustle’ Paris Premiere

Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood Man - 'American Hustle' Paris Premiere

Bradley Cooper was flying solo to promote his latest movie ‘American Hustle’, translated to ‘American Bluff’ for the Paris premiere, held at Cinema UGC Normandie on Monday (February 3) in Paris, France.

Continuing to showcase his impressive collection of outerwear, the actor wore a Vivienne Westwood Man burgundy double-breasted coat from the recent Fall 2014 collection, which featured contrast black ponyskin lapels.

This luxe coat was worn over his navy Todd Snyder suit, and you will be happy to see that Bradley is smartening up his footwear from the Red Wing boots he wore to the New York premiere; he selected brown lace-ups on this occasion.

‘That Awkward Moment’ New York Screening Menswear Roundup

'That Awkward Moment' New York Screening Menswear Roundup

Imogen Poots was quite the lucky lady sandwiched between three very fine (well-dressed) actors for the screening of their latest movie, ‘That Awkward Moment’, in New York City on Tuesday (January 22).

Zac Efron: The actor looked very dapper in his grey check Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit styled with a patterned tie and black leather lace-ups.

Michael B. Jordan: I’m sure you are not surprised to learn that Michael’s Vivienne Westwood Man Spring 2014 rust-coloured suit is my favourite here. Styled to perfection with an olive shirt and purple tie, this is easily one of the best looks of the year. I love that he often takes risks, shaking up menswear to keep the likes of me keenly interested. Tan Christian Louboutin flats and a white-gold Piaget ‘Altiplano’ timepiece rounded out his look. This look has me thinking we need a BDOTY list for men.

Miles Teller: While not so groundbreaking in his navy Z Zegna two-button notch-lapel three-piece suit and tie, the young actor looks very smart and polished, right down to his tan Louboutin shoes, which are the same as his co-star Michael’s.
