2017 Hollywood Film Awards Menswear Roundup

We saw a number of pretty looks from the female set at the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday (November 5) in Beverly Hills, California. But, the men served up some stylish offerings and brought their A game, too.

Garrett Hedlund: I like how his micro-print dress shirt and burnt cappuccino tie brought a note of subtle, retro-forward appeal to his dark mahogany Prada suit.

Timothée Chalamet: Always the style charmer, the actor dressed up in a black tux yet ensured it still had a properly youthful, casual-cool edge by skipping a tie or bow tie.

Jake Gyllenhaal
: Jake was at his handsome best in this Burberry tailoring whereby the tonal silken sheen of the lapels took the suit beyond standard-issue.

2017 Hollywood Film Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 2017 Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday (November 5) in Beverly Hills, California were a fashionable affair with a number of lovely ladies joining Angelina JolieCarey MulliganShailene Woodley and Mary J. Blige.

Kate Mara: The recently married actress presented a fashion-forward look in this Burberry patterned suit. The metallic mix is something that looks as good far away as it does close up thanks to the contrasting pattern on the collar and the sleek shape. The red clutch adds a new energy to the ensemble without overshadowing the modern tailoring.

Amy Adams: Opting for crisp tailoring and shimmering femininity, the actress wore an all-black Tom Ford number. The shape of the sequined dress was almost to the point of hobble skirt proportions, but it gave the look a liquidity that was juxtaposed with the sharpness of the jacket.

Zoe Kazan: Bringing a botanical touch, ‘The Big Sick’ actress donned a white Gucci dress decorated with flora and fauna. Some might find it too spring-like for this time of year, but I found it to be a joyful injection to the carpet.

Mary J. Blige In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2017 Hollywood Film Awards

There were a slew of lovely ladies at the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday (November 5) in Beverly Hills, California. Mary J. Blige stepped out to join Angelina JolieMargot RobbieCarey Mulligan and Shailene Woodley.

Ditching the gown for elegant separates, the singer was clad in a Fall 2017 ensemble from Zuhair Murad Couture. The bright white fabric of the longline jacket and pants allowed the intricate black appliqués to pop.

It’s such a shame about the wrong colour nipple pasties as they distract from the sumptuous mix of the sheer top and ornate stitching.

I’m keen to see the jacket and high-necked top styled separately so the handiwork of each piece could speak for themselves.

Angelina Jolie In Jenny Packham – 2017 Hollywood Film Awards

Angelina Jolie oozed glamour on the red carpet at the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday (November 5) in Beverly Hills, California, joining Margot Robbie, Shailene Woodley and Carey Mulligan.

The actress typically favors black or cream tones, but when she deviates from them, it’s normally with much success. This Jenny Packham Fall 2017 gown’s silvery hue wasn’t drastically out of her wheelhouse, but it made quite a statement.

The absence of beading or embellishment allowed the graceful wrap silhouette and flowing skirt to be fully appreciated.

A vibrant red lipstick finished off the sophisticated ensemble and brought to mind the elegance of decades gone by.

Shailene Woodley In Balmain – 2017 Hollywood Film Awards

The detail-laden, fierce sensuality of Balmain isn’t the first thing I would think to pair Shailene Woodley with so I was surprised by this choice.

The actress joined Dakota Johnson and Margot Robbie at the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday (November 5) in Beverly Hills, California, wearing a Spring 2018 look from the designer.

Despite the unexpected choice, I was enamored by this sultry style on Shailene. It was a departure from her flowing, bohemian elegance but she carried off the fashion-forward mix beautifully. The sheer panels and textured bands were set off by the thick chain belt and black trim.

The two-tone bedazzled Christian Louboutin ‘Crystal Queen’ sandals echoed the different elements in her dress while chunky hoop earrings played up the powerful, glamorous feel.

What did you think of the ensemble?

Dakota Johnson In Calvin Klein – 2017 Hollywood Film Awards

Dakota Johnson stepped out to attend the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday (November 5) in Beverly Hills, California, joining Margot Robbie and Carey Mulligan.

The ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ actress has a penchant for Gucci, but this time she opted for the minimalism of Calvin Klein in a red two-button suit.

The masculine tailoring of the longline jacket and slim trousers was juxtaposed by her decision to style the coordinates sans shirt. A choker necklace added some sparkle while playing up the sensual contrast.

Everything was tied up beautifully with the necklace’s design being echoed in her sandals.
