Menswear Red Carpet Round Up

Menswear Round up

Chris Pine: For Tuesday’s Mexico City premiere of Chris’s new film ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, he went with a grey double-breasted suit. We haven’t seen too many men wearing the double-breasted suit of late, but it worked for Chris at last month’s Cinema Con awards so he wisely went back to it. The suit fits beautifully and he paired it with an orange tie, which is another detail we don’t see often. His favourite Ralph Lauren tan shoes completed his look.

Zachary Quinto: Dressing upscale-casual for ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ on Wednesday, he paired his incredible Todd Snyder olive suit with a fully-buttoned navy shirt. No bad things can be said as the fit was right and the black shoes worked well, but those creases. The creases are unforgivable.

Tom Cruise: Joining Olga Kurylenko at the Japan premiere in Tokyo of Tom’s latest film ‘Oblivion’, the star opted for a grey three-piece suit with peak lapels. The colour was great but a three-piece suit must be tailored to fit the shape of the body. The waistcoat and jacket seemed a bit loose, but it’s difficult to tell when Tom refuses to button his jacket. The pants are much too long, though. The blue shirt, grey tie, and signature sunglasses gave him that movie star aura he always gives off.

Alice Eve In Gucci – ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Mexico Premiere

Alice Eve In Gucci - ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Mexico Premiere

Alice Eve joined Zoe Saldana on the red carpet for the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Mexico premiere.

The British actress wore her second look from the Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Her frock featured a netted high-neck top, olive strappy top and black velvet skirt.

While I like the look, it feels a tad dark for a premiere in Mexico. I think Zoe had the right idea by opting for something spring-like, despite her look also being a Fall look.

Wavy tresses with side-swept bangs once again – I guess she’s figured out that this style is working better for her – and black pumps provided the finishing touches.

Chloe Sevigny In Christopher Kane – A&E Networks Upfront

Chloe Sevigny In Christopher Kane - A&E Networks Upfront

Chloe Sevigny, who was one of the many disappointing attendees at the 2013 Met Gala, took to the red carpet yesterday evening for the A&E Networks Upfront event held at the Lincoln Center in New York City.

On this occasion, she opted for a white Christopher Kane Spring 2013 dress.

Her neatly constructed white wool crepe square-neck dress, featuring a slightly fitted waist, front-panel folded detail, hip front side slits and bolt accent, made me take notice on the runway, but it falls flat on Chloe, especially when styled with those black ankle-strap pumps.

A little while back I was happy that she appeared to have rediscovered her mojo, but it appears to have gone M.I.A. again, judging by this boxy look.

‘Fast & Furious 6’ World Premiere Menswear Round Up

FastAndFurious 6 Men

The male stars of ‘Fast & Furious 6’ also gathered at Empire Leicester Square in London on Tuesday for the film’s world premiere.

Paul Walker: Keeping it simple, but taking a risk with a one-button jacket, Paul sported a Giorgio Armani L.A.-cut navy suit. His wool-silk-blend suit featured a peak-lapel jacket that fit nicely, though his shirt cuffs should be visible when his arms hang down. He paired it with a white cotton shirt and a purple silk tie. This would have made for a great look had his pants been a few inches shorter.

Luke Evans: With my favourite look of the bunch, Luke went all out, wearing a Thom Sweeney black-and-white bespoke three-piece suit. His look, which fit beautifully, was enhanced by numerous details, such as a horseshoe waistcoat, pleated trousers, and an off-colour pocket square. He finished it off with a white shirt and an attention-grabbing burgundy tie.

Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges: In a Giorgio Armani grey-check wool trader suit, Chris had a suave look for the premiere, but it was subdued by poor choices. The suit doesn’t fit terribly, though it could have been a bit slimmer in the leg, but the decision to wear a tie and pocket square that are the same colour as the suit held him back. The brown shoes and brown belt were great, however.

Jessica Alba In Dolce & Gabbana – The Today Show

Jessica Alba In Dolce & Gabbana - The Today Show

Jessica Alba made a guest appearance on the Today Show on Tuesday morning following the 2013 Met Gala.

The actress and author was on the show to promote her new book ‘Honest’ and she shared how she copes with work and motherhood.

She wore a Dolce & Gabbana black sleeveless printed dress featuring a map print of the Italian designers’ beloved Sicily.

I love her tri-colour Sigerson Morrison ‘Corista’ open-toe colour-block heels, which feature a thin ankle strap and Lucite-detailed mid-rise heel.

Opting for a red lip colour and wavy locks, the actress’s style was yet again relaxed and elegant.

Later that same day she headed to ‘Live With Kelly and Michael’, where she added a yellow leather cropped jacket, changing her hair slightly from a centre parting to a side parting.

Elsa Pataky In Naeem Khan – ‘Fast and Furious 6’ World Premiere & After-Party

Elsa Pataky In Naeem Khan - ‘Fast and Furious 6’ World Premiere

Elsa Pataky attended the ‘Fast and Furious 6’ world premiere held at the Empire Leicester Square in London on Monday.

For the premiere, she stunned, wearing a gorgeous Naeem Khan crystal deco-beaded tulle slip gown from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

The magpie in me adores this dress for its intricate beadwork, plus I love the way it sensually drapes to the floor.

Elsa turned to Naeem Khan once again later on, this time taking up the hemline for a sassier look for the after party held at Somerset House.

Her sexy LBD, with silver starburst beading throughout and a sheer yoke, was styled with Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals.

Of the two looks, I’m in lust with the premiere look.

Which do you prefer?

Kerry Washington In Narciso Rodriguez – ‘Peeples’ LA Premiere

Kerry Washington In Narciso Rodriguez - 'Peeples' LA Premiere

Kerry Washington attended the LA premiere for ‘Peeples’, which was held at the ArcLight Hollywood in California on Wednesday evening.

I have never been shy about my affections for Kerry, but on this rare occasion I dislike this look – a lot. I will go on record to say it is probably my least favourite look from her.

The actress wore a surprisingly unflattering Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2013 dress with yet another high-low hemline, which differs slightly from the runway version.

I really dislike the fit around her chest and overall poor quality. Kerry is so much better than this dress suggests.

What I do like is her black-and-white manicure, and her highlighted wavy locks.

Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina’ pumps and a Vince Camuto clutch provided the finishing touches.

As many of you hated her Michael Kors MTV Movie Awards look, is this better or worse?
