Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Five suits. Five completely different takes on menswear tailoring in this latest roundup of fellows.

Logan Miller: Joining Katherine Langford at the ‘Love, Simon’ LA screening on Tuesday (March 13), Logan offered up a fresh take on tailoring. I love how his Topshop suit riffed on the standard with its red pinstripe detailing—especially when paired with a whimsical micro-pattern button-down from The Kooples. Kenneth Cole shoes rounded out the look.

Dave Franco: The actor was at the ‘6 Balloons’ premiere during the 2018 SXSW Conference and Festivals on Monday (March 12) in Austin, Texas. I was particularly fond of the navy and Kelly green combo in this Sandro Homme ensemble. With the slight crop of the trousers, as it offered a colour-saturated, spring-forward take on laid-back, yet polished, tailoring.

Edgar Ramirez: As the guest of honour at the Hublot Private Dinner in Beverly Hills, California on Tuesday (March 13), Edgar relied on handsome shades of gray to keep it effortlessly cool in this Strong Suit ensemble, styled with a textural print dress shirt for added impact.

Mandy Moore promotes ‘This Is Us’ @ 2018 SXSW Conference and Festivals

Mandy Moore has been making the rounds at the SXSW Conference and Festivals in support of the hit TV show, ‘This Is Us,’ in Austin, TX on Monday (March 12).

‘This is Us’ SXSW Festival Premiere: Had you seen this look from the waist up, you may have thought it a romantic red gown. But, I was a fan of the juxtaposition of dressy femininity and dressed-down streetwear in this ensemble that paired an off-the-shoulder Brock Collection top with cropped jeans. Sara Weinstock jewels along with the sass of her wavy locks, red lip and vampy Chloe Gosselin shoes brought it all together.

Featured Session: The cast of ‘This Is Us’: I was just as much a fan of this charming, floral halter Erdem dress that brought femininity full circle in such a modern way. We would have never expected teal Aldo pumps here, but I like that she made the footwear her statement accessory keeping her jewels and beauty look at a minimum.

‘The New Romantic’ SXSW Festival Premiere

Actors Jessica Barden, Brett Dier, Camila Mendes and Hayley Law attended the premiere of ‘The New Romantic’ during SXSW Festival on Sunday (March 11) in Austin, Texas.

Jessica Barden: Opting to spring forward, the actress wore an invigorating Gucci look, but I wish she opted for gold instead of silver pumps.

Brett Dier: Looking like he’s been on tour with a rock band for a few months, the actor’s laidback vibe was perfectly suited to this festival.

Camila Mendes: After her breath-taking appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, the young actress was a delight once again wearing a vibrant Tory Burch floral dress perfectly styled with nude pumps.

Hayley Law: Looking like she was perhaps on tour with Brett, the actress sported a cleaner rock inspired look, but her vintage T-shirt doesn’t pledge its allegiance to a rock band, more to Austrian fashion designer Helmut Lang. I love how this look was oozing with ’80s flavour. It wouldn’t look out of place on Camden High Street in London, especially with those Dr. Martens. I’m not mad she didn’t get the floral memo.

SXSW Conference and Festival Weekend Roundup

A number of other stars were in Austin, Texas this past weekend for the start of the 2018 SXSW Conference and Festival. Here’s a look at what they were wearing.

Carla Gugino: The actress was a beauty in blue at the ‘Elizabeth Harvest’ premiere on Saturday (Marh 10) with this vibrant, high-low variation on the iconic Diane von Furstenberg floral wrap dress. I probably would have opted for a different shoe to let her red lip and matching envelope clutch be the accessories of note, rather than bring in the additional metallic shine factor.

Jamie Chung: Making a case for colourful stripes, this was such a graphically intrepid Ronny Kobo dress—and I loved its slightly dizzying effect at the ‘1985’ premiere on Friday (March 9).

AJ Michalka: At the ‘Support the Girls’ premiere on Friday (March 9), AJ turned up the charm in a Markarian ‘Theres’ dress. The only thing about this look was that I felt the black peep-toe shoes dragged it down somewhat.

Elle Fanning In Ganni – ‘Galveston’ SXSW Festival Premiere

Elle Fanning also made her way to Austin, Texas over the weekend for the 2018 SXSW Conference and Festival, attending the premiere of ‘Galveston’ on Saturday (March 10).

We may have once thought of Elle as a girly style girl. But, she’s broken out of that mold with her own kind of directional edge.

I love how the more mannish, work-wear aesthetic of this Ganni Fall 2017 pinstripe jumpsuit took on forward flair with her Freda Salvador oxford lace-up mules and that Prada comic-print clutch that packed on the attitude.

Rosy-tinged makeup and casually styled blonde locks ensured the look didn’t translate as too contrived.
