Cameron Silver In Nicole Miller – 2012 Met Gala

Nicole Miller and Decades owner Cameron Silver wore custom Nicole Miller to The Metropolitan Museum of Art for the 2012 Met Gala in New York City last night.

Cameron’s suit was inspired by Nicole Miller’s archival “Ticket Print” that catapulted her design career.

He also donned a vintage Schiaparelli walking stick to give homage to the late designer’s work.

Cameron added a black Edwing D’Angelo shirt and a Lanvin bow tie to his look.

Tod’s shoes and Cartier vintage jewels provided the finishing touches.

You can always reply on Cameron to brighten up the red carpet.

I love the Don Draper come-over.

Robert Downey Jr. Loves Vivienne Westwood

Robert Downey Jr. is one of the few men who make red-carpet dressing fun.

One of his favourite designers is Vivienne Westwood.

I loved the cornflower-blue Westwood suit he wore to the ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ Rome photocall back in December last year, but I’m not too crazy about the white sneakers with the blue toe-caps.

During the promotional tour for ‘The Avengers’, he has worn a Vivienne Westwood suit twice so far.

For the Moscow premiere he looked very dapper in a grey plaid suit which he styled with a black-and-white check bow tie, a white dress shirt and Marc Jacobs beaded sneakers.

The actor appeared more serious on the red carpet for the London premiere, but his navy Vivienne Westwood suit was styled with a shirt with oversized cuffs and black sneakers.

What do you think of Robert’s style? Do you like that he pairs his suits with sneakers?

You can buy Robert’s Marc Jacobs beaded high-top sneakers from S|sense.

Who Wore Mary Katrantzou Better? Cameron Silver or Henry Holland

Cameron Silver, owner of vintage emporium Decades Inc., wore a colourful floral Mary Katrantzou suit, inspired by her Spring 2012 womenswear collection, whilst attending the LAXART Ball Of Artists Event in Beverly Hills, California, back in January.

He wore his custom-made suit with an Alexis Mabille peacock-feathered butterfly bow tie and Christian Louboutin ‘Havana Trash’ shoes.

On Monday, designer Henry Holland posted a picture on his Vogue blog wearing the same suit.

He opted for a black shirt to Cameron’s white, which works equally well.

I like that Cameron wasn’t afraid to go a few steps further with this look with his bow tie and shoes, so he wins for me.

Liam Hemsworth In Gucci – ‘The Hunger Games’ Toronto Premiere

Whilst Elizabeth Banks and Jennifer Lawrence took the night off promoting ‘The Hunger Games’, it was up to the guys to provide the eye candy at the Canadian premiere yesterday.

Liam Hemsworth didn’t let the side down as he looked very dapper wearing a Gucci Spring 2012 look.

He teamed a black-and-white plaid evening jacket, with black pants, a black button up shirt and black leather lace ups.

It’s hard to make menswear interesting on the red carpet, but the jacket sells this look to me.

Liam’s laidback styling of this look totally works for him, but I can’t help but think, ‘what would Ryan Gosling do?’

I think he would’ve worn it as presented on the runway.

Question. Has Liam always been this hot?

I guess I’ve been too busy paying attention to what Miley is wearing to notice.

Marc Jacobs Loves His Comme des Garçons Dresses

We’ve seen Marc Jacobs don kilts several times, but yesterday he wore two Comme des Garçons Spring 2012 dresses.

The first black dress was worn when he took his bow for Louis Vuitton after his Fall 2012 presentation, the second time he wore pink whilst attending the ‘Louis Vuitton – Marc Jacobs: The Exhibition’ that same evening.

Both Comme des Garçons t-shirt dresses were paired with black pirate shoes with an embellished buckle from his Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 collection.

Kanye West has been known to rock a kilt.

Is a dress next on his agenda too?

Kanye West In Acne Front Row @ Mark Fast Fall 2012

For someone who is under a lot of pressure to produce his Fall 2012 collection, Kanye West looked as cool as a cucumber front row at Mark Fast’s Fall 2012 presentation during London Fashion Week on Monday.

Wearing a lot of denim, the rapper/designer added a mint Acne Spring 2012 sweater to his look.

He, of course, added the obligatory gold chains and his co-designed Nike Yeezy sneakers.

Kanye’s eagerly awaited Fall 2012 collection will be presented in Paris on March 6.

The designer has even moved to London to concentrate on collection.

Used to criticism, I’m sure Kanye is taking the pressure in his stride.

David Beckham for H&M Bodywear Launch

Victoria Beckham wasn’t the only Beckham causing a buying frenzy in London this week.

David Beckham was in town to promote his David Beckham Bodywear for H&M collaboration on Wednesday.

The collection, which went on sale in store and online yesterday, features nine underwear styles for men with a focus on fit, function, comfort and design and comprising of briefs, boxers, vests, T-shirts, pyjamas and long johns.

Funny, then, that the majority of the people in the queue were women. I guess they queued for three hours to buy the bodywear for their sons, brothers and other halves.
