2014 Emmy Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Emmy Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

While the constellation of actresses on the scene at the 2014 Emmy Awards had all of us focused on the range of red-carpet gowns and glam, there was plenty more eye candy to be had with the men in the mix at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday night (August 25).

Matthew McConaughey: Not one to ever be a shrinking violet, the ‘True Detective’ actor and nominee suited up in a bold blue Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit with contrasting black lapels, paired with Christian Louboutin ‘New Orleans’ flats, and a Bulgari watch and cufflinks. Was it my favourite look of his? Perhaps not. It even drew ‘A Night at the Roxbury’ comparisons among the Twitter-verse. But, with that handsome gaze, he can pull off anything.

Aaron Paul: The ‘Breaking Bad’ Emmy winner couldn’t have accepted his trophy in more classic fashion. He wore top-to-toe Prada in a black kid-mohair tuxedo, with a two-button notch-lapel design and velvet trim on the collar. A white smoking silk shirt, black bowtie and black spazzolato lace-up shoes, plus a Bulgari timepiece, completed the look.

Ty Burrell: Channeling his own blue mood, the ‘Modern Family’ Emmy winner wore a custom Todd Snyder tuxedo that was made especially for his big night. The Italian wool design was a collaborative effort between Ty, his stylist, Ilaria Urbinati, and the designer and boasts a unique shade of blue called ‘dusk,’ which nicely updates the tux from the more standard colourways of black and navy.

Get The Look: Lorde’s MTV Video Music Awards Bold Waves

Always one to make a statement, award-winner singer, Lorde sported a beautifully bold waved hairstyle at MTV Video Music Awards (August 24th).

Celebrity hairstylist, Andy LeCompte drew inspiration from Jerry Hall’s signature waved tresses and developed a look that perfectly topped off Lorde’s look of the evening.

It was essential that the hairstyle look elegant and touchable while retaining its sheen long after its initial styling. This touchable and glamorous hairstyle can easily be recreated by following these simple tips:

Prep: Staring with clean, freshly washed hair was a must. Andy washed and conditioned Lorde’s hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner.

Styling (blowout): Once hair was thoroughly washed, Andy prepped her hair with Wella Professionals LuxeOil Keratin Boost Leave In Conditioning Spray. He applied the product while the hair was still damp to insure the perfect base for heat styling. He followed by blow drying the hair using a large ceramic brush to create natural and smooth volume.

Styling (wave): To create the classic Jerry Hall look, Andy parted Lorde’s hair in a deep side part and curled the hair with an 1 ½ inch ceramic curling iron. Starting from the base all the way to the crown of the hair, Andy created long loose waves.

Setting: To get that impeccable shine, he applied 2-3 pumps of Wella Professionals LuxeOil Reconstructive Elixir and warmed it up between his palms. He gently ran the product through the curls to neatly define the waves and lock in the sheen.

Finish: Andy added a final finishing touch to the hair by lightly misting the waves with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray. Not only does this tame any pesky flyaways but hair looks healthy and touchable long after the first spay.

Try your hand at this chic hairstyle and you’ll surely fell like a royal all evening.

Robin Wright In Ralph Lauren – 2014 Emmy Awards

Robin Wright In Ralph Lauren - 2014 Emmy Awards

Robin Wright attended the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California.

For me, the ‘House of Cards’ actress was one of the best dressed at the event despite not opting for an expected gown.

Looking very chic in a backless custom made Ralph Lauren Collection cream tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit, she decided to let her bold outfit do the talking by keeping her accessories to a minimum and slicking back her hair.

‘Orange is the New Black’ @ The 2014 Emmy Awards

'Orange is the New Black' @ The 2014 Emmy Awards

The ‘Orange is the New Black’ cast seemed to dominate the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards on Monday evening (August 25). We’ve seen Laura Prepon, Taylor Schilling and Laverne Cox; now here’s a look at how the others look so very good when not wearing their prison garb.

Uzo Aduba: The most jaw-dropping of them all was Uzo, who stunned wearing a breathtaking Christian Siriano custom lipstick-red silk gown with cascading organza back flounces which place goosebumps on my goosebumps. Letting the gown do all the work, she styled the look with Fred Leighton gold jewels, sweeping her hair up into a neat bun. I would only remove the cuff, but otherwise: perfection.

Alysia Reiner: The actress wore an Alexander McQueen pretty pink gown with draped hips and a decadent arrangement of pearly beads and rhinestones on the front. A Jimmy Choo ‘Sweetie’ ombre clutch, silver Jimmy Choo shoes and Sidney Garber jewels accessorized the look. Only the limp hair is throwing me off this look.

Teyonah Parris In Christian Siriano – 2014 Emmy Awards

Teyonah Parris In Christian Siriano - 2014 Emmy Awards

Teyonah Parris blew me away on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California, and I’m sure she will do the same to you.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress has always had a love for colour and print, and this Christian Siriano lime silk overlay gown with a striped bodice from the Resort 2015 collection has it ALL.

Colour, personality, vibrancy and a fun-loving spirit that will etch this look in my memory forever.

Styled with a Carrera y Carrera ring, drop earrings, a topknot and that infectious smile, she was easily of my favourites on this red carpet.

What a breath of fresh air. I’m gonna sit back and soak this one in.
