Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Between the 2017 Time 100 Gala in New York City, to a Hollywood premiere and a special screening in London, there were plenty of reasons for the men to be out in force on Tuesday (April 25).

Riz Ahmed: I applaud Riz for stepping outside the navy and black box to wear this camel Prada Spring 2017 suit—and to wear it so well—at the Time 100 Gala. However, I do question the black dress shirt and brown loafers.

Orlando Bloom: At a special screening of ‘Unlocked’ in London, the actor was casually sharp in a Dior Homme blue suit enhanced by the patterned shirt underneath that precluded the need for a tie.

Ryan Reynolds: Also at the Time 100 Gala, Ryan went for a more classic route in a Brunello Cucinelli navy tux that was handsomely polished for the occasion.

2017 Time 100 Gala Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more looks to grace the red carpet for the 2017 Time 100 Gala on Tuesday (April 25) in New York City.

Naomi Campbell: The supermodel opted for an Alaia piece which was selected not only to colour coordinate with the step and repeat, but also because of its fine craftsmanship. Yes, it’s a bit heavy for spring, but Naomi has always marched to the beat of her own drum.

Margot Robbie: While I wish this Prada dress wasn’t so shapeless, the colourful embellishments – which reminded me of 100s and 1000s – the pale yellow hue, Delfina Delettrez jewels and the pretty pink purse did soften my stance and I have to say I love the look.

Ashley Graham: I love Ashley’s style, but I couldn’t get on board with what I feel is the over-styling of this look – starting with that choker. The look consisted of a Cami NYC camisole, Nili Lotan ‘Maya’ maxi skirt and Fleur Du Mal corset.

Fan Bingbing In Marchesa – 2017 Time 100 Gala

Before the 2017 Time 100 Gala on Tuesday (April 25) in New York City, I was excited to learn that Fan Bingbing was announced as one of the judges for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival alongside Jessica Chastain.

To mark that celebration the actress wore a Marchesa Fall 2017 floral beaded satin dress with an embroidered and fringe cape which she styled with a Marchesa ‘Simonetta’ bronze clutch.

Clutch and shoes aside, I love the look. This might seem surprising as I didn’t love Blake Lively’s dress from the same collection, but Bingbing is selling this look to me.

Why?

Mostly because of the Asian influences which is void of any costumey feel. The pink and red hues are both divine and supremely elegant. Her hair and makeup is simple and perfect for this look.

Honestly I could wax lyrical about this all day.

Demi Lovato In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2017 Time 100 Gala

Not one to shy away from glamour, Demi Lovato attended the 2017 Time 100 Gala on Tuesday (April 25) in New York City.

The actress wore a Zuhair Murad Fall 2016 Couture gown which takes the thirst for something sparkly literally with a sequin-embellished bodice.

I love the balance of the softly flared skirt which falls away to make this look a statement of fun and sensual femininity.

The look was complete with sapphire Chopard jewels.

Blake Lively In Marchesa – 2017 Time 100 Gala

Blake Lively attended the 2017 Time 100 Gala on Tuesday (April 25) in New York City with her husband Ryan Reynolds as the couple gear up for Cannes Film Festival next month.

I don’t need to remind you that I’m a huge fan of Blake’s style, but unfortunately I couldn’t get on board with the look from Marchesa Fall 2017 dress.

Firstly it pales into comparison with her Brandon Maxwell sleek offering from the weekend, but secondly, and most importantly, there is just too much going on.

Shave off those multi-colour fringes. Get rid of the cape and perhaps I would’ve looked at this more favourably.

Viola Davis In Armani Prive – 2017 Time 100 Gala

Viola Davis took my breath away at the 2017 Time 100 Gala on Tuesday (April 25) in New York City.

Once again this mostly due to how radiant she always looks in jewels tones.

This purple hue is particularly hypnotic highlighted by a folded one shoulder neckline and a column skirt with effortless draping this Armani Prive gown gives Viola a red carpet moment fit for royalty – and what a beautiful queen she is.

Buccellati jewels completed the look.
