2013 MTV Movie Awards Menswear Round Up

MTV Mens

We’ve seen Eddie Redmayne, so here are some more dudes who attended the 2013 MTV Movie Awards in LA on Sunday.

Macklemore: The rapper, who performed at this event, stood out on this red carpet. Not just because he opted for an electric-blue slim-fit suit: more likely, he stood out for the OTT gold fringed Logan Neitzel matador-style cape he wore it with. Without the cape this was a BDOTW contender.

Jamie Foxx: Picking up the ‘Best WTF Moment’ award for ‘Candieland Gets Smoked’ in ‘Django Unchained’ and the highest honour, the ‘MTV Generation’ award, Jamie made a touching tribute by honouring the memory of Trayvon Martin with a t-shirt bearing his face with the words “Know Justice, Know Peace”.

Gerard Butler In Z Zegna – ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ New York Premiere

Gerard Butler In Z Zegna - ‘Olympus Has Fallen' New York Premiere

Gerard Butler returned to the spotlight on Monday in New York City when The Cinema Society with Roger Dubuis and Grey Goose hosted a screening of his new action film, ‘Olympus Has Fallen.’

In a Z Zegna three-piece, grey glen-plaid suit, the Scottish actor looked rather sharp.

He matched his wool, peak-lapel suit with a classic white shirt and a pair of black lace-up shoes. The look was completed with a Roger Dubuis timepiece.

I loved every part of this outfit. He nailed the look, and going without a tie was a great way to dress down his suit.

On March 22, Gerard will be seen in ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ alongside costars Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman.

Menswear Midweek Round Up

Menswear Midweek round up

Chris Hemsworth: At the 2013 Foxtel Launch at Fox Studios in Sydney on Wednesday, the 29-year-old actor sported an Ermenegildo Zegna grey peak-lapel suit. He also added a white pocket square to match his unbuttoned white shirt. Chris’s suit was nicely tailored to show off his muscular frame, and usually I would prefer to have one more button done up, but he makes it work with ease.

James Franco: I like that James Franco is experimenting with suits. On his last outing he wore a rich brown-and-blue windowpane suit. For the ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ Japan premiere he stood alongside the gorgeous Rachel Weisz wearing a jade-green Gucci suit. Styling the suit with a more familiar white dress shirt, black tie and leather lace ups, I kinda wish the tie and shoes had been in a different colour.

James D’Arcy: The English actor attended a gala screening of ‘Cloud Atlas’, which he starred in, at the Curzon Mayfair in London on Monday. To the screening, James wore all Prada; his Prada navy tela-mohair suit was matched with a blue-and-white striped shirt. James styled it with a bordeaux micro-dot tie and black brushed-leather lace-up shoes for a dashing look.

2013 SAG Awards Menswear Round Up

2013 SAG Awards Menswear Round UpWith gowns galore parading down awards-gala red carpets, it’s always hard to focus on the tuxes—no matter how handsome they and their inhabitants are. But at the 2013 SAG Awards, hosted last night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, the men had their moment. Like many of the girls, some of the guys played with color—albeit to mixed success. But it all made for a far more entertaining and colorful show.

Eddie Redmayne: The ‘Les Miserables’ star continues to deliver great red-carpet performances. The British actor carried off a slimly tailored tuxedo by BOSS Black, rendered in a luxe brown, crushed velvet. He paired it with a white shirt and matching dress shoes from the label. In a sea of black and blue, this delicious chocolate color was a smooth statement—so was Eddie’s cool-boy coif.

Bradley Cooper: The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actor and nominee chose Tom Ford for his big night. The midnight navy color of his single-breasted tux, featuring a black satin shawl collar, reminded me of some of the similarly colored gowns seen last night, such as the one from Jennifer Lawrence. I wish his black bow tie didn’t appear crooked, throwing the polish of this look awry.

Cory Monteith: This ‘Glee’ cutie stepped outside the norm with his Calvin Klein tuxedo paired with a sleek set of black Christian Louboutin loafers. His cufflinks and tie bar were by Ox and Bull Trading Co. and his timepiece from Versace. The exaggerated peak lapel in black contrasted sharply with the light heather grey of the single-breasted jacket. But was Cory red-carpet-royalty or just prom-king ready?

Taylor Lautner In Z Zegna – ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ London Premiere

After not quite doing it for me style-wise at ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ LA premiere, Taylor Lautner did make me swoon at the London premiere last night.

He wore a second Z Zegna suit, but on this occasion the overall look felt more modern for the young actor.

Taylor wore a violet two-button notch-lapel suit with a black Alternative Apparel v-neck tee.

Black lace-up shoes completed his look.

Do you like this more modern approach, or did you prefer the more classic dress shirt and tie look?

Rob Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz & Jackson Rathbone – ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ LA Premiere

The male stars of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ also scrubbed up well for the LA premiere, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California yesterday evening.

Rob Pattinson: The handsome British actor wore a Gucci suit. His green and black micro-houndstooth notch-lapel two-button Monaco suit was styled with a pale grey dress shirt and black satin tie. As always, he opted for a bold colour and an interesting print in a bid to keep menswear appealing.

Taylor Lautner: The actor opted for something more classic, wearing a Z Zegna grey two-button, notch-lapel suit with a pale grey shirt and dotted grey tie.

Kellan Lutz: The actor looked hot, as always, wearing a Roberto Cavalli suit. His black suit, with midnight-blue satin lapels to match his tie, was styled with a black shirt and ombre shoes.

Jackson Rathbone: I love that menswear isn’t all just about a black suit any more. Jackson wore a deep navy-blue Calvin Klein suit with a matching shirt and patterned tie. This is quite a classic look for the actor, who usually takes the Alan Cummings approach to red carpet dressing.
