2019 Critics’ Choice Awards Menswear

2019 Critics’ Choice Awards Menswear

The 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards were on Sunday (January 13) in Santa Monica, California, and the men showed up just as much as the women when it comes to the statement looks of the evening. There was hardly a standard suit in the mix here.

Timothée Chalamet: Your Best Dressed of last week kept his style-forward streak going strong in this painterly Alexander McQueen Resort 2019 suit. As always, he pulls off the directional look — complete with white sneakers — so seamlessly and nonchalantly.

John Legend: The singer-actor recently turned 40, but he looks as good as ever — especially with the rich, textural effect of this Ermenegildo Zegna XXX suit, styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Thomas III’ shoes.

Stephan James: The contrast piping on this slightly shrunken, slim-line Thom Browne suit gave it a an eye-catching edge. A Montblanc timepiece and David Yurman ring completed the look.

Best Dressed Of The Week

Apologies for the site being down for a few hours. It had reached it limit. Probably as a result of awards season.

Here are the results of the Best Dressed poll.

I was very surprised that you selected Sarah Paulson in Prada and Timothée Chalamet in Louis Vuitton, as the majority of the comments weren’t favourable to either.

But I guess that means that the silent majority were successful in this case.

Mahershala Ali In Dzojchen – Premiere Of HBO’s ‘True Detective’ Season 3

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features Mahershala Ali In Dzojchen - Premiere Of HBO's 'True Detective' Season 3

Even with gorgeous ladies such as Angela Sarafyan and Carmen Ejogo and Jodi Balfour on the red carpet for HBO’s ‘True Detective’ Season 3 premiere on Thursday (January 10) in Los Angeles, California, Mahershala Ali was the star attraction.

Whoever dressed the actor in this Dzojchen suit should be giving themselves a congratulatory pat on the back.

You may remember it was Chadwick Boseman who brought this brand to our attention at the Seoul premiere for ‘Black Panther’, and the list of celeb fans has since grown to include Common, Ryan Gosling, Janelle Monae, Leonardo Nam, Donald Glover, Blake Lively, Patrick Schwarzenegger and Angela Bassett.

2019 Golden Globe Awards Menswear Roundup

2019 Golden Globe Awards Menswear Roundup2

There were plenty of menfolk on the red carpet at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 6) in Beverly Hills, California, and I was delighted by the diversity of looks they offered up.

Ben Whishaw: Nominated for ‘A Very English Scandal,’ the actor was looking very fine in his Alexander McQueen embroidered suit styled so crisply with the dress shirt that you didn’t even miss the tie.

Stephan James: The ‘Homecoming’ star and nominee couldn’t have looked more dapper if he tried in this impeccably tailored Ralph Lauren Purple Label velvet suit styled supremely well with a Swarovski Odysseia pendant, Chopard timepiece, cufflinks and Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ toe-cap loafers.

Luke Evans: Also wearing an Alexander McQueen ensemble, Luke went for a slightly more traditional mood in his formal white dinner jacket with black lapels.

2019 AFI Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

2019 AFI Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

We won’t forget the fellas who joined a host of ladies at the 2019 AFI Awards this afternoon (January 4) in California.

Bradley Cooper: Am I the only one who desperately wants to undo that button? This wool Isaia suit was the better of his two looks this past 24 hours – which he styled with velvet Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo Orlato’ shoes – but if he was going to button up, he should’ve lost the vest, because the as look as presented feels really bulky.

Mahershala Ali: Could Mahershala look any cooler? His Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ lace less dress shoe set this off right.

Stephan James: Do not adjust your screens. This is a rare moment of Stephan James wearing black. The ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ actor was decked out in a three-piece Etro suit which mixed classic tailoring with a contemporary cut. I will give him a pass on going sans socks, as he was rocking a swaggy pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Dandelion’ patent and printed loafers. Chopard’s L.U.C Perpetual Twin timepiece completed his look.

2019 Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala Menswear Roundup

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features 2019 Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala Menswear

Emily Blunt, Regina King and Emma Stone were joined on the red carpet for the 2019 Palm Springs International Film Festival Film Awards Gala on Thursday (January 3) in California, by several guys in dapper suits.

Mahershala Ali: The Golden Globe nominated ‘Green Book’ actor tends to do black-on-black a lot. But you won’t hear me complaining when he looks this good. The ombre shoes ensure the look wasn’t too one note.

Timothee Chalamet: Your best dressed man of 2018 wore a Thom Browne suit. The designer is known to push the boundaries of classic men’s fashion with every new collection.  This particular suit skillfully demonstrates Thom Browne’s meticulous craftsmanship. With the crop of the trousers, Timothee was wise to opt for Berluti’s ‘Eris Bergen’ tall leather boots.

Rami Malek: Winner of the Breakthrough Performance Award for the Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, the actor – who was once the face of Dior Men – opted for Givenchy. I love how the crisp stripes in contrasting tones, adds a contemporary touch to this slim fit suit. Bow ties usually give a look a formal touch, but it feels quite playful here.
