Michael B. Jordan In Louis Vuitton & Prada – GQ Dinner & Men Of The Year Party

Micheal B Jordan - GQ Celebrations

Michael B. Jordan doubled up on the GQ festivities this week, attending both the dinner and the GQ Men Of The Year Party in Los Angeles, California.

On Monday, the actor attended the GQ Dinner in a gray-checkered Louis Vuitton suit, consisting of a double-breasted blazer and slim trousers. He partnered the look with a crisp white shirt, light blue tie, and black Christian Louboutin ‘New Platers Fiori’ shoes.

The following evening, he switched things up at the GQ Men Of The Year Party with a many-shades-of-blue Prada suit. Between the navy shirt, matching trousers, dark aqua-coloured blazer, printed tie, and polished black monk-strap oxfords, it felt a little busy to me.

That said, there’s not a lot Michael B. Jordan can do to look less than handsome.

Lupita Nyong’o In Cushnie et Ochs – GQ Men Of The Year Party

Lupita Nyong'o In Cushnie et Ochs - GQ Men Of The Year Party

Lupita Nyong’o attended the GQ Men Of The Year Party at The Ebell Club of Los Angeles in California yesterday evening.

The actress wore a pretty pale-pink Cushnie et Ochs Pre-Fall 2013 sheath dress cut in a modern silhouette, with harness-inspired cut-out detailing adding an edge to this soft look.

While white pumps aren’t my favourite, I would prefer these Christian Louboutin ‘June’ pumps over her favoured black pumps any day with this dress.

Her accessories included a pale-pink Devi Kroell clutch and Dana Rebecca jewels, with her makeup enhancing her look again. I just can’t take my eyes off her bright-fuchsia-pink lip colour.

So glad she didn’t wear that belt.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 8 Nov

Here’s a quick roundup of some of the handsome fellas taking to the red carpet yesterday evening.

Tinie Tempah: The birthday boy attended the Beats by Dre event, which doubled up as his ‘Demonstration’ album launch party in London. Perhaps mindful of the fact that some of you have grown tired of the cropped pants, or perhaps because temperatures are dropping swiftly, he opted to wear regular pants on this occasion. I just love the tan wool blazer. This is yet another dapper Dolce & Gabbana look.

David Beckham: The handsome former footballer joined Kylie Minogue on the red carpet for the GQ Men of the Year Awards in Berlin, Germany looking very dapper in his black suit with a Remembrance Day red poppy proudly pinned to his lapel. “Like no other athlete, David Beckham represents style and fashion influence. With his trendsetting and sometimes daring appearances he has created a bridge between the world of design, models and photographers, and the world of world-class sports, and brought glamour back to a male sport”, said José Redondo-Vega, editor-in-chief of GQ Germany.

Gerard Butler: The Scottish actor attended the Ermenegildo Zegna global store opening hosted by Gildo Zegna and Stefano Pilati in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening. Looking slick in a blue two-button suit, I love the contrasting black tie and blue shoes. Men so often stick to black.

Kylie Minogue In Nina Ricci – GQ Men Of The Year Award 2013

Kylie Minogue In Nina Ricci - GQ Men Of The Year Award 2013

Kylie Minogue was honoured with the ‘Gentlewoman of the Year’ award at the GQ Men of the Year Awards held at Komische Oper in Berlin, Germany yesterday evening.

Before presenting her with the award, José RedondoVega, editor-in-chief of GQ Germany said “Kylie Minogue has managed to become the dream woman and icon for several generations. She is the embodiment of a pop icon and has reinvented herself for each decade. And yet Kylie Minogue the person never disappears behind an artificial facade. It is precisely the ease of her music that makes it so profound.”
She accepted her award wearing a beautiful white Nina Ricci gown, taking a rare night off from wearing Dolce & Gabbana or Roberto Cavalli.

The frothy flamenco-style gown with a corseted bodice, rise-and-fall hemline and cascading ruffles was styled with gold sandals, drop earrings, neutral makeup and a chic updo.
She really is a timeless beauty.

Ellie Goulding In Julien Macdonald – 2013 GQ Men Of The Year Awards

Ellie Goulding In Julien Macdonald - 2013 GQ Men Of The Year Awards

While live reporting on the 2013 GQ Men Of The Year Awards yesterday evening, it appears I missed Ellie Goulding.

The singer was spotted at The Royal Opera House in London wearing two Julien Macdonald Fall 2013 looks.

For the red carpet she wore a feather-festooned and mirror-embellished mini dress styled with Rupert Sanderson ‘Moiki’ silver cut-out metallic pumps and a silver clutch. I will surprise myself and say that I kinda like the look, although every time I see her hair I wish she had done something different with it. A ponytail would’ve been perfect.

Her second Macdonald dress was worn to the after-party. This more daring embellished mini dress isn’t my favourite. It’s more JLo than Ellie Goulding. It’s a sexy dress, yet there is no sex appeal here.
