Menswear Red Carpet Round Up

Menswear 9 April 2013

Nick Cannon: The host of ‘America’s Got Talent’ joined Heidi Klum on the red carpet at the Rockefeller Center for the New York auditions. Going for a dapper look wearing a two-piece Vivienne Westwood Man suit, I find myself being bothered by the fit of the pants. The blazer features an insert waistcoat, giving the look a smart but trendy feel with a gold chain and button closure He styled his suit with a grey floral brooch, a lavender shirt, a blue printed tie with a tie pin, and grey shoes.

Robert Downing Jr.: The actor is still in Asia promoting the third installment of the ‘Iron Man’ franchise. On this occasion, he attended a photocall in Beijing, China wearing a Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2013 burgundy cotton two-button notch lapel suit. Aside from the obligatory sneakers by Lanvin, this was a surprisingly quirk-free look. I love the colour; the complementary CK shirt and purple tinted glasses help make this one of his best looks so far on this tour.

Alexander Skarsgard: The handsome actor joined Paula Patton on the red carpet last night for the ‘Disconnect’ New York screening. I have one word for Alexander in this Calvin Klein grey suit and black shirt: swoon.

Elsa Pataky In Naeem Khan – The Inaugural Oceana Ball

Elsa Pataky In Naeem Khan - The Inaugural Oceana Ball

With mummy duties taking priority over the last few months, Elsa Pataky made a return to the red carpet for the Inaugural Oceana Ball hosted by Christie’s in New York City on Monday evening, where she gave her cropped hairstyle its red carpet debut.

The model/actress and mum of one dazzled wearing a Naeem Khan Pre-Fall 2013 frock.

Not only did the pewter sequin dress have a risqué plunging front, but it also featured an open back; I’m sure hubby Chris Hemsworth wasn’t complaining.

While she set the blue carpet alight with her stunning dress, I’m not too fond of the champagne-coloured satin Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

This dress deserved better shoes. Since the shoe is so popular, I can picture the silver Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals elevating this look further.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Alexandra New York Vintage – Cindy Chao’s ‘The Art Jewel’ Event

Sarah Jessica Parker In Alexandra New York Vintage - Cindy Chao’s ‘The Art Jewel’ Event

As an ambassador for the brand, Sarah Jessica Parker attended the Cindy Chao’s ‘The Art Jewel’ event held in Beijing, China on Sunday evening.

The actress, who is not only an avid fan of jewels but also of vintage clothing, wore a chartreuse fit-and-flare frock from Alexandra New York.

While chartreuse is not an easy colour to pull off, especially in this shimmering fabric, I think the lavender suede Jean-Michel Cazabat ‘Ella’ d’orsay pumps do a good job of elevating the look, as do the sparkling Cindy Chao jewels, which include the ‘Branch’ bangles, the ‘Donut’ bangle, and the ‘Feather’ earrings.

Can SJP do no wrong and make this colour work for you?

Thandie Newton In Temperley London – ‘Rouge’ MIPTV Market Photocall

Thandie Newton In Temperley London - 'Rouge' MIPTV Market Photocall

Thandie Newton attended a photocall for her new TV series, ‘Rogue’, during the 2013 MIPTV Market in Cannes, France on Monday afternoon.

The British actress, who often wears British designers, wore another look from the Temperley London Spring 2013 collection.

On this occasion, she wore a red-and-white top which is decorated with a fleur-de-lis style appliqué. The relaxed body, capped sleeves and simple style complement the decorative design.

The ribbon satin skirt in a classic 50s shape is given a modern update with sheer organza and horizontal satin panels.

I love the contrasting textures and opacities, giving a lightweight, ethereal feel.

The styling was simple, with gold hooped earrings, taupe peep-toes and a beige clutch completing her look.

Thandie is so radiant that you barely notice that it’s raining.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Isabel Marant – 2013 Sundance Institute Theatre Program Benefit

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Isabel Marant - 2013 Sundance Institute Theatre Program Benefit

Not seen on the red carpet since September, Maggie Gyllenhaal returned yesterday evening for the 2013 Sundance Institute Theatre Program Benefit at Stephan Weiss Studio in New York City.

Showcasing a new cropped hairstyle, the actress wore an Isabel Marant ‘Samuel’ printed dress.

Isabel Marant’s knack for a uniquely Parisian spin on rich cultural inspiration is exemplified in this multi-coloured paisley-print dress.

Her flowy silk-gauze semi-sheer frock with a slit neckline and balloon sleeves was accented with a tasselled leather belt.

Gold studded midi-heels, a gold bracelet and a red pout completed her boho-inspired, laidback-yet-chic look.
