Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of all the guys who took to the red carpet for various events last weekend, including Comic-Con and the Young Hollywood Awards.

Douglas Booth: The handsome British actor wore a smart-casual Polo Ralph Lauren look consisting of a khaki linen sport jacket, mint-green chinos, and a simple white tee and pocket square. The contrasting pair of navy suede brogues don’t ruin the look, but some tan loafers would’ve been preferred here.

Ansel Elgort: Brown, auburn, cinnamon, mud… call Ansel’s Prada Uomo Fall 2014 two-button lapel suit whatever colour you like. I am only getting through this by focusing on the tie. He can do so much better.

Eddie Redmayne: The always impeccably dressed actor wore a micro-checked blue and white suit with navy accents, including slippers which I would’ve swapped out for those nice navy Alexander McQueen loafers he wore during awards season.

Comic-Con 2014 Red Carpet Roundup

Comic Con Roundup

Here is a final roundup of the other starlets who caught my eye during last weekend’s Comic-Con 2014.

Willa Holland: I am sure you’re not surprised to discover Willa caught my eye in her brightly coloured Milly floral wave-print cut-out dress wisely styled with a simple solid-white pump.

Chloe Bennet: Crop tops cropped up several times on the Comic-Con red carpet this weekend. Chloe stood out in her bright-pink two-piece look from Elizabeth & James, styling the look simply and effortlessly with nude pumps.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum In Alice + Olivia – Comic-Con 2014

Jenna Dewan-Tatum In Alice + Olivia - Comic-Con 2014

Jenna Dewan-Tatum was in San Diego, California to promote Season 2 of ‘Witches of East End’ during Comic-Con 2014 last weekend.

Nintendo Lounge: The actress joined several stars, like Ashley Madekwe, who hopped on board the TV Guide Magazine’s yacht to take in the Nintendo lounge. Wearing a structured yet feminine and totally sexy Alice + Olivia jumpsuit featuring cut-outs at the waist and a leather waistband, she made the look her own by ditching the straps. Silver embellished sandals added a touch of bling to make up for the lack of colour.

‘Witches of East End': A twinge of disappointment came over me when I saw this black and grey V-neck short-sleeved satin dress. While it fits the mood of the event, I wish it was at least 5 inches shorter.

Jada Pinkett Smith In Cushnie et Ochs – ‘Gotham’ Comic-Con Press Line

Jada Pinkett Smith In Cushnie et Ochs - 'Gotham' Comic-Con Press Line

Jada Pinkett Smith attended the ‘Gotham’ press line during Comic-Con International 2014 held at Hilton Bayfront on Saturday (July 26) in San Diego, California.

With a bat as a prop, the actress showed off her toned body wearing a Cushnie et Ochs bralet and cut-out skirt.

While I am a huge fan of Cushnie et Ochs’ sexy cut-out designs, sexy doesn’t spring to mind when looking at Jada here.

Even for Comic-Con, this is just a little too much. Had this been Willow I probably wouldn’t have batted an eyelid, but it just feels so inappropriate on Jada.

Black Manolo Blahnik ‘Platee’ sandals completed her look.

Deborah Ann Woll In Fitriani & Halston Heritage – Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration

Deborah Ann Woll In Fitriani & Halston Heritage - Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly's Annual Comic-Con Celebration

Deborah Ann Woll also headed down to San Diego, California for Comic-Con 2014 this week, where she sat on the ‘True Blood’ panel and attended Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration.

‘True Blood’ panel: The strawberry-blonde actress wore a white jumpsuit by Fitriani with a fitted waist accented with a thin silver belt. Both her hair and makeup are flawless. Only the blouson top is throwing me off loving this look.

Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: Things got fiery for the second look, with Deborah donning a red Halston Heritage strapless cocktail dress with pretty pink accessories and a deep shade of pink to plump up that pout.

Hayley Atwell In Mulberry & Michael Van der Ham – Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration

Hayley Atwell In Mulberry & Michael Van der Ham - Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration

British actress Hayley Atwell was at Comic-Con International 2014 this weekend in San Diego, California to promote ‘Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ and ‘Marvel’s Agent Carter’.

Press Line: Hayley’s first look was a simple black Mulberry Resort 2015 crepe dress with intriguing accessories which included her Lulu Guinness ‘Chloe’ clutch with a lipstick as the clasp, tri-colour snakeskin Christian Louboutin ‘Viveka’ sandals, plus a selection of jewels from Naviya London.

Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: Next up was my favourite look, a patchwork top and skirt from the king of fabric collage, Michael Van der Ham. This Spring 2014 yellow, grey and black look features a floral-jacquard top with black textured-devoré inserts and a flirty A-line skirt. While her Jimmy Choo black and gold pumps and Naviya London jewels were subtle additions to the look, I love the Nathalie Trad ‘Dysdera’ mother of pearl clutch which both stands out and complements the look without overwhelming the outfit.

Emma Roberts In Houghton & Tanya Taylor – Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration

Emma Roberts In Houghton & Tanya Taylor - Entertainment Weekly's Annual Comic-Con Celebration

Emma Roberts attended Entertainment Weekly’s annual Comic-Con celebration held at Float at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego on Saturday (July 26) in San Diego, California.

Wearing a classic black and white look in a modern way, the actress donned a black crop top with a Tanya Taylor Fall 2014 white skirt with a black intricate floral lace pattern which plays to the label’s signature feminine style.

Her bubble-gum pink Casadei pumps steal the show here. Do they pep up the look for you or do you find them a distraction?

Jennifer Morrison In Lublu Kira Plastinina & Paule Ka – ‘Bates Motel’ Party, Comic-Con 2014, Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration

Jennifer Morrison In Lublu & Paule Ka - 'Bates Motel' Party, Comic-Con 2014, Entertainment Weekly's Annual Comic-Con Celebration

Jennifer Morrison donned three looks during Comic-Con 2014 this weekend with varying levels of success.

‘Bates Motel’ Party: Looking at her floral bustier top and high-waist shorts, the outfit doesn’t quite have enough polish or flair for the occasion, especially if you were to stand her alongside Vera Farmiga. Attempting to make it party perfect, Jennifer styled the look with a Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch and black Greymar platform sandals, yet it was a resounding no from me.

‘Once Upon A Time’ Panel: The great thing about Comic-Con is that there is always another event around the corner to turn things around. And so she did, donning a gorgeous off-the-shoulder bold red Lublu ’50s-style dress accented with a red leather bow waistband. While I wish she’d switched up the accessories, this look, which she topped off with a braided updo, is far superior to the first one.

Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: Opting to wear her Greymar shoes for a third time this weekend, the actress attended this party wearing a Paule Ka Spring 2014 black skirt and crop top accented with royal-blue satin lapels. Once again this look is so very far away in style from the first one, yet I look at all three looks and think, you can do better.
