Ed Westwick In Zegna & Douglas Booth In Tom Ford – ‘Romeo & Juliet’ LA Premiere

Ed Westwick In Zegna & Douglas Booth In Tom Ford - 'Romeo & Juliet' LA Premiere

The ‘Romeo & Juliet’ LA premiere was attended by two handsome British actors.

Ed Westwick: The actor has always had a flair for wearing snazzy suits, so I was delighted to see him wearing this rich autumnal merlot Zegna two-button peaked-lapel suit styled with a brown tie, white shirt, white pocket square and brown lace-up shoes. Head to toe he totally nailed this look.

Douglas Booth: The handsome actor, who plays Romeo to Hailee Steinfeld’s Juliet in the movie, wore an equally if not more snazzy look than his fellow Brit actor. Douglas donned a Tom Ford Spring 2014 black two-button peaked-lapel suit with cool and quirky styling which included a black-and-white plaid shirt, grey-and-white dotted tie and black-and-white dotted pocket square. On paper it would sound like a lot, but instead of clashing they complement each other very well.

Who is my favourite here? It’s a tough one. I love the season-accurate hue of Ed’s suit, yet I’m bowled over by Douglas’ styling of his black suit.

Which one do you favour?

Chris Pine In Z Zegna – ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ CinemaCon Presentation

Chris Pine In Z Zegna - ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ CinemaCon Presentation

Chris Pine joined his ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ co-star Alice Eve at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada on Tuesday during CinemaCon for Paramount Pictures’ presentation of their upcoming movie.

Also opting for a light-hued look, the handsome actor wore a grey-and-white striped Z Zegna two-piece peak-lapel suit with black patent-leather shoes.

As CinemaCon is a fairly informal event, the actor opted not to wear a tie.

From the ankles up I like this look. It would’ve been perfect had he opted for a lighter-coloured shoe; the black feels so heavy with his lightweight summery suit.

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?
