Menswear Red Carpet Roundup


Here is a quick roundup of some gents who caught my eye on the red carpet this week.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor joined Keira Knightley for the ‘Imitation Game’ pre-BAFTA reception held at the ME Hotel on Thursday (February 5) in London, England, attending his first red carpet event this year without his glamorous plus one, Sophie Hunter. As we would expect, his classic suit was tailored to perfection. Once in a while I would like to see something other than black from Benedict, but he scrubs up so nicely that one can’t blame him for sticking to tried and true.

David Oyelowo: The British actor is yet to stick to safe black. He wore a dual-colour biscuit and black Dolce & Gabbana suit to the Virtuosos Awards at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. On some this would’ve been questionable, but on someone with his flair it works.

Ethan Hawke: For the American Riviera Awards ceremony, held during at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Thursday (February 5), Ethan selected a midnight-blue suit, which by his standards was quite sombre considering his love for colour.

    Sorry, David O. doesn’t sell this to me. Put this on a dapper dude like Eddie or David Beckham.

    Hmm, just thinking about Cumberbatch in color — or colour as the Brits spell it. A coloured suit or a coloured shirt or a coloured kerchief in his pocket, say. Would be interesting to see him walk a mile in coloured shoes sometime.

    David by a mile for his daring, and continued love of non-black! Benedict looks well-tailored, but boring. Wish he would shake it up.

    Have never really liked Ethan Hawke or his clothing choices…he always looks like he needs a shower and/or a shave to me.

    Ethan! He’s just this super chill, talented guy from Austin, TX. It’s nice to see him in some proper menswear 🙂 And, he looks so dapper in Prada ads – happy about this high fashion recognition for him.

    Benedict and Ethan look nice but boring. I don’t like David’s suit.

    Benedict of the bunch.
