Menswear Midweek Red Carpet Roundup

Men 3 december

Here is a quick roundup of the men who have suited up in the name of fashion and movie premieres so far this week.

David Beckham: The former soccer star wore a Dior Homme wool and silk shawl-collar tuxedo. Black on black on black never looked so good. I love how he added a World AIDS Day red ribbon in support of the charity and his wife Victoria Beckham, who is a UNAIDS ambassador, while attending the British Fashion Awards.

Orlando Bloom: While the hair is a tad girlified for my liking, one can’t fault the British actor’s navy blue Lanvin silk shawl-collar tuxedo worn to the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ on Monday alongside Evangeline Lilly.

Harry Styles: Always looking very sharp, Harry wore a red vertical-striped suit from Lanvin’s Fall 2014 collection. Probably committing something of a fashion faux pas wearing a French brand to the British Fashion Awards, who has time to nitpick when this mod look suits his style to a T?

British Fashion Awards sponsored by Swarovski

British Fashion Awards sponsored by Swarovski

Last night the British Fashion Awards was sponsored by luxury jewelry brand Swarovski. Where two lovely ladies dazzled on the red carpet courtesy of Swarovski.

Victoria Secret’s Angel Isabeli Fontana wore a bespoke dress by Swarovski Collective designer and Red Carpet nominee Mary Katrantzou.

The hand-embellished dress featuring delicate Swarovski crystals which was matched by her smouldering beauty.

British actress Naomie Harris wore a bespoke dress by Swarovski Collective designer and New Establishment nominee Peter Pilotto. The pink rainbow dress was made of swiss lace with Perspex embellishment and Swarovski crystals.

As Rachel said in the previous post, this was powerhouse statement from a distance, but even more mesmerizing close up.

Models @ The 2014 British Fashion Awards

Models @ The 2014 2014 British Fashion Awards

A host of models held court at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, where the runway stunners took to the red carpet at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

Daisy Lowe: She may have been dressed in shades of blush-pink, but there was a sexy side to all that sweetness with her Antonio Berardi asymmetrical, figure-hugging gown that was slit to her hip. A heart-embellished clutch by Charlotte Olympia finished the look on a lighthearted note.

Suki Waterhouse: From shades of pink to shades of blue, the model subscribed to the sheer trend in a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 tiered and pleated, navy ombre-inspired frock that was perhaps one shade too see-through. Gold metallic sandals provided a spirited contrast, but the baby-blue edged purse had no business here.

Joan Smalls: This Tom Ford scoop-neck LBD was sliced and diced with side cutouts and slits galore. She completed the skin-baring look with black Givenchy heels and a Rauwolf clutch.

Ashley Madekwe In Banana Republic – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Ashley Madekwe In Banana Republic - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Ashley Madekwe was also at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, held at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

Like Poppy Delevingne, the actress took a high-street approach in a custom, monochromatic three-piece ivory suit from Banana Republic.

Impeccably tailored, the menswear-inspired look has the distinction of being classically timeless yet completely current. I also love that she wore the blazer swung across her shoulders like a cape.

There’s power in the plunge, and this mannish ensemble doesn’t forget its sexier side with a deep V neckline and streamlined silhouette that commands attention. So, too, does that ruby red lip.

Très chic.

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Laura Carmichael attended the 2014 British Fashion Awards at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

The English actress selected a dress from London-based designer Christopher Kane’s Spring 2015 collection.

On paper, the frock has all the right pieces to create a successful look—a vibrant lavender-blue colour, structure and sass, and interesting design detailing courtesy of the controlled explosion of tulle.

But, sadly, none of the pieces translated on the red carpet, once removed from the runway.

In fact, the effect was rather unflattering and dated. Accessories did nothing to remedy the look’s shortcomings, as the shoes were too matchy-matchy and the oversized beige clutch didn’t match at all.
