Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary Event

Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary Event

Star-studded to say the least, Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary celebration was hosted in grand style with a runway show and black-tie dinner during New York Fashion Week on Friday (September 7). In homage to the legendary designer, all the beauties (and the boys, too) were clad in their Ralph Lauren finest.

Blake Lively: The actress continued her run of wearing suits from her ‘A Simple Favor’ promo tour with this tux-and-tails look. I loved it all, save for her hair, which I would have preferred in sleeker form to match the sartorial mood.

Jessica Chastain: A vision in sunny yellow, the actress would not be missed in this chiffon frock that was an enchanting, light-as-air confection.

Anne Hathaway: Like Blake, Anne was similarly clad in a menswear-inspired number that she feminized with her lightened locks, silver clutch, and stilettos.

2018 GQ Men Of The Year Awards Menswear

There were many more well-dressed men who joined Chadwick Boseman on the red carpet for the GQ Awards on Wednesday (September 6) in London.

Tom Hiddleston: Dressed in a Ralph Lauren Purple Label black velvet double breasted suit, I don’t think menswear gets much better than this. I’m excited to see how the Best Dressed menswear poll with turn out with both Chadwick and Henry Golding in the running this week.

John Legend: The winner of HUGO BOSS Most Stylish Man Award, it would’ve rude for the musician to have worn anything else but BOSS. Velvet has long had a louche image, redolent of relaxing with a glass of brandy and a cigar after a formal dinner, or Bond-esque nights out in expensive clubs, but both Tom and John give the look a contemporary uplift.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

There were many dapper gentlemen on the red carpet cutting sharp figures in sleek suits.

Ryan Gosling: The actor joined Claire Foy on Wednesday (April 25) for the ‘First Man’ presentation at CinemaCon 2018. I was struck by the different references in the look with the soft red patterned shirt and dusty blue shoes playing off the pinstripes in the suit for a cohesive but still dynamic finish.

Tom Hiddleston: Lightening things up, the actor wore a Ralph Lauren Purple Label Hadley silk linen suit for an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on Tuesday (April 24) to promote ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ The light mauve jacket and trousers with pale blue shirt evokes spring with the clean lines enhancing the subtle shades. For a fresh look, I would have preferred gray shoes rather than brown boots.

Channing Tatum: Like the other gents, he elected to go without a tie when he attended ‘The Big Picture’ presentation on Tuesday (April 24) at CinemaCon 2018. Clad in Rag & Bone, he looked cool and confident. I like the idea of the different collar shape, but think he could have gotten away with something more substantial.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ LA Premiere Menswear Roundup

At the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ LA premiere on Monday (April 23), the men scored as many fashion points as the ladies. The gents joined Zoe SaldanaKaren Gillan, Brie Larson and Letitia Wright.

Tom Holland: The ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ actor punctuated a Joshua Kane suit with a merlot sweater poking above the buttoned jacket. The suit itself was an interesting style with the multiple buttons and unique fabric that merged blue, gray and green. Christian Louboutin Top Daviol shoes added the finishing touch.

Sebastian Stan: Tom’s costar went for a darker look in Givenchy. Traditional in colour but not in fabrication, the sleek one-button style was constructed out of a pinstripe fabric with subtle sheen. The monochromatic satin lapels and cotton shirt give the outfit an interesting tactile quality.

Chadwick Boseman: Celebrating his love of fashion, the ‘Black Panther’ star was clad in a Prada bottiglia green kid mohair suit with a denim blue and burgundy bicolor popeline shirt. I love his joyful mix of colours. He never disappoints. Christian Louboutin Ajmone boots completed his look.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here’s a look at the men who have been making the red-carpet rounds this week.

Tom Holland: Joining Pom Klementieff for the ‘Avengers Infinity War’ Seoul premiere on Thursday (April 12), Tom cut a cool profile. I really found myself liking this non-suit offering, as it was casual but still felt appropriate and fresh for the young British actor.

Tom Hiddleston: In contrast to the other Tom, Tom Hiddleston opted for more formality at the ‘Avengers Infinity War’ Seoul premiere. I loved how dapper this striking navy three-piece Ralph Lauren suit translated on him—his glasses no doubt helping the cause.

Benedict Cumberbatch
: Also at the ‘Avengers Infinity War’ Seoul premiere, Benedict stole my heart with this aubergine suit. The colour is just so rich and decadent.
