AFI Awards 2014 Menswear Roundup

AFI Men

Lest you think it was a women’s-only affair, quite a few gents also attended the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

Bradley Cooper: The ‘American Hustle’ hottie looked smart in a navy Thom Sweeney suit. He created a classic look with his blue shirt and burgundy tie. You can’t argue with the classics.

Michael B. Jordan: The new kid on the Hollywood block knows how to get it done! The ‘That Awkward Moment’ star paired his black Gucci suit with a burgundy shirt and silver tie for the perfect amount of pizzazz for a luncheon event. A Piaget timepiece and Burberry Prorsum shoes completed the look.

AFI Awards 2014 Red Carpet Roundup

Plenty more stars joined Amy Adams, Kate Mara, and Lupita Nyong’o at the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

Julianna Margulies: The ‘The Good Wife’ star looked chic in black and white donning an Oscar de la Renta blouse and L’Wren Scott pencil skirt with copper Christian Louboutin ointy-toed heels and coordinating clutch and a simple chignon.

Melonie Diaz: The ‘Fruitville Station’ star wore a Honor Spring 2014 dress and worked two spring trends in one–lace and monochromatic white. She paired the dress with a Jimmy Choo ‘Cameo’ clutch and Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ suede pumps. A deep side part in her hair and sweet pink lips completed the look.

Christina Hendricks: The ‘Mad Men’ star went for subtle color-blocking in a soft blue Boden sweater over a seafoam Dolce & Gabbana skirt. Classic nude Jimmy Choo pumps and a metallic clutch completed the look.

Lizzy Caplan In Houghton – AFI Awards 2014

Lizzy Caplan In Houghton - AFI Award 2014

Lizzy Caplan also attended the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

The ‘Masters of Sex’ actress wore a black Houghton midriff-bearing top and skirt and red Bionda Castana ‘Lana’ shoes.

Lizzy knows that the key to the midriff trend is wearing something high-waisted on the bottom, and showing only a slice of skin kept this look classy while being right on-trend. The LBD of right now, if you will.

I love the bright red shoe with this ensemble, and that she didn’t go the obvious route of a red lip, as well.

Her signature wipsy bangs, a basic chignon, bold eyeliner, and nude lips were the finishing touches to her look.

Octavia Spencer In Michael Kors – AFI Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer In Michael Kors - AFI Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer joined many of her fellow style mavens at the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

The actress was a bright-spot in a lovely black and green pleated Michael Kors dress.

The decision to accessorize with leopard print is a huge ‘yes’ in my book. I love the way the clutch and shoes work as ‘neutrals’ against the bright green.

Simple EF Collection jewels, a white mani, major curls and understated makeup complete her look.

All I can say is, yes, Octavia, yes. Are you as smitten as I am?

Sandra Bullock In Burberry Prorsum – AFI Awards 2014

Sandra Bullock In Burberry Prorsum - AFI Awards 2014

Sandra Bullock also attended the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

The ‘Gravity’ actress wore a skirt and top from the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 paired with nude Brian Atwood ‘Tamara’ shoes.

Sandra is gearing up for a big award season (she already won a People’s Choice Award on Wednesday, and she’s nominated for a Golden Globe), and I love that she looks chic, but is still taking it a little easy for this event.

The outfit is classic without any fuss, and her beautiful hair is shiny and equally effortless.

I do love the pop of green with the shoes on the runway, but Sandy’s Atwoods are classic and a great match to the top.

Kate Mara In Michael Kors – AFI Awards 2014

Kate Mara In Michael Kors - AFI Awards 2014

Kate Mara rocked her new hair colour at the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

For the occasion, the star wore a fun, spring-inspired Michael Kors Spring 2014 dress and belt.

Kate is doing this look and doing it well. The print is youthful; the sleeve-length is unique, and the belt sets it all off perfectly.

She’s also doing major justice to her newly blonde locks. The color looks great with her skintone and the dress, and she really wears the ever-popular messy lob effortlessly.

My only complaint is I wish she had matched the color of her shoes to the belt, as seen on the runway.

So let’s hear it–do you love Kate’s style and new hair colour as much as I do?

Lupita Nyong’o In Carolina Herrera – AFI Awards 2014

Lupita Nyong'o In Carolina Herrera - AFI Awards 2014

When I saw Lupita Nyong’o at the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10) I gave a sigh of relief.

Thankfully that strange hairdo sported at the W magazine party was just an one-off.

The actress was back to her best wearing blue-and-yellow floral print Carolina Herrera v-neck frock with an asymmetrical draped skirt.

She complemented the look with blue suede Manolo Blahnik pumps and dazzling Jamie Wolf scallop stud earrings and a matching cocktail ring.

Many of you were not only put off by the hairdo of the last look, but also the styling; so how does Lupita fare on this occasion?

Amy Adams In Roksanda Ilincic – AFI Awards 2014

Amy Adams In Roksanda Ilincic - AFI Awards 2014

Amy Adams attended the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

The ‘American Hustle’ actress wore a simple black dress from Roksanda Ilincic’s Resort 2014 collection.

When I first saw this look, I was disappointed that Amy shied away from the purple print seen on the runway, but she looked so flawless in her LBD, that you can’t fault her for the decision.

The tailoring and styling are perfect on the star, and pointy-toed silver Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps are a fun way to finish the look.

Her lush curls, simple makeup and pink lips round out the perfect luncheon style.

Are you as taken by Amy’s choices as I am?

Emilia Clarke In Victoria Beckham – AFI Awards 2014

Emilia Clarke In Victoria Beckham - AFI Awards 2014

Emilia Clarke attended the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

The ‘Game of Thrones’ star opted to wear a short, tennis-inspired dress from the Victoria Beckham Spring 2014 collection.

I love the royal blue colour on Emilia, and I think leaving her hair down for the easy style was a great choice. However, since she chose to forego the belt seen on the runway, I do wish she would have accessorized a bit.

A statement necklace or some arm candy would have really helped amp up this look.

The nude Kurt Geiger London ‘Foxglove’ strapped sandals also seem a bit out of place. A bootie would have been more seasonally appropriate.

Emilia’s fresh-faced makeup and glossy pink lips are lovely and her brows really are some of the best in Hollywood.
