M.I.A. In Burberry – ‘MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A’ London Premiere

M.I.A. In Burberry - 'MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A' London Premiere

Maya Arulpragasam aka M.I.A. attended the London premiere of ‘MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A’ at The Curzon Mayfair on Wednesday (September 19).

The rapper is the first to wear a look from Riccardo Tisci’s 48-hour old, Spring 2019 collection for Burberry, which was marks his debut.

While Bryan Boy has liken this collection to Hugo Boss, I feel like there is plenty that will appeal to the traditional Burberry customer, but Maya’s fawn print oversized trench, layered over a matching blouse with patches bearing deer portraits definitely had an urbane feel.

I’m curious to see what the Kardashian’s do with this collection as they are best buds with Riccardo, but looking through this collection, it ain’t really their style.

Henry Golding In Burberry & Prada – SiriusXM’s Spotlight With The Cast Of ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ & The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Henry Golding In Burberry & Prada - SiriusXM’s Spotlight With The Cast Of ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ & The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Henry Golding was back to bless us with his movie star looks and impeccable style while joining his co-stars Awkwafina and Constance Wu for SiriusXM’s Spotlight With The Cast Of ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ before flying solo on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ in New York City on Wednesday (August 15).

SiriusXM’s Spotlight With The Cast Of ‘Crazy Rich Asians: The actor wasn’t afraid to mix colours with print in this Burberry look. But once again I found myself not liking bordeaux shoes with this look. On the plus side, he isn’t afraid to shake things up.

‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’: I thought last week’s premiere was the day I fell in love with Henry’s style, but this Prada green kid mohair suit is so smooth and debonair, that I think I will count this as the official moment.

What I love most about Henry, apart from the obvious, is he’s yet to wear Hollywood standard all black or all navy.

Never change Henry. Never change.

Adwoa Aboah In Burberry – Burberry x Adwoa Cocktail Party

On Friday (June 8) Burberry hosted a party to celebrate model of the moment Adwoa Aboah in London.

She was naturally outfitted by the British brand, wearing a look from Christopher Bailey’s last collection before we get to see Burberry under the creative guidance of Riccardo Tisci.

On paper a bold yellow checked peplum top and tiered tulle lilac skirt wouldn’t sound so appealing, but eclectic ensemble looks both edgy and super feminine on the model.

Some might question the addition of the check Burberry pumps, but I found myself enjoying this print clash.

John Hardy jewels completed her look.

Lily James In Burberry Tailoring – ‘Little Woods’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Lily James was also at the Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend, attending the premiere of ‘Little Woods’ on Saturday (April 21) in New York City.

The borrowed-from-the-boys trend is nothing new, but I was absolutely entranced by how masterfully Lily wore this menswear-inspired Burberry Tailoring suit.

It was a study in sartorial sophistication.

Yet what truly made the classic ensemble so compelling—besides its impeccable fit—were her lush, fairytale waves topped with a headband along with her smoldering, nude makeup to introduce a balance of femininity to the look.

Repossi jewels completed her look.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The guys have been out in force over the past few days. Here’s a look at what they were wearing.

Tye Sheridan: At the ‘Ready Player One’ European premiere in London on Monday (March 19), warmth was a key part of Tye’s Burberry Tailoring double-breasted suit and overcoat—as opposed to some of the ladies on the red carpet like Tallia Storm. The striped, collarless dress shirt underneath was an intriguing way to finish the dapper look.

Edgar Ramirez: With a retro-forward, brown suede Brunello Cucinelli Fall 2018 suit and colour-block sweater, Edgar fit in perfectly as he joined Judith Light at the For Your Consideration event for FX’s ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ on Monday (March 19) in LA.

Matthew Rhys: At the season 6 premiere of ‘The Americans’ on Friday (March 16) in Washington, D.C., alongside Keri Russell, Matthew looked sharp in one of my favoured suit shades: aubergine. I do think this Rag & Bone ensemble would have been fine without the black tie and belt.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Two different premieres, and three handsome guys—here’s the latest in menswear.

Michael Fassbender: On Tuesday (March 6), Michael suited up in a Burberry three-piece ensemble for the ‘Tomb Raider’ London premiere, where he joined his wife Alicia Vikander. It was such a basic look in my book, so my feelings remain neutral.

David Oyelowo: ‘Basic’ would not even be in the vocabulary of this Kutula by Africana embroidered tunic look that offered such a stylishly suave mood for the ‘Gringo’ LA premiere on Tuesday (March 6). I especially love the royal richness of the colour palette here.

Joel Edgerton: We don’t often see brown corduroy suits on the red carpet, but Joel brought one to the ‘Gringo’ premiere, casually styling his Brunello Cucinelli suit with a denim shirt.

2018 Oscars & Oscar Parties Menswear Roundup

Many of the men brought their A game to the 2018 Oscars and Oscars parties, including the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in California.

Chadwick Boseman: The ‘Black Panther’ star continued his reign of sartorial power in this Givenchy Haute Couture suit that was inspired by a full look in the Spring 2018 collection. However, I love how he made the long, embellished jacket his own—sleekly styling it with black shirting and trousers and the zipper-accented shoes.

Donald Glover: This Gucci tux such a handsome-luxe approach with the velvet jacket taking it to the next level in partnership with the relaxed-suave appeal of the slipper shoes. A David Yurman ring completed the look.

Tom Holland: Sometimes double-breasted jackets can come across as a bit contrived, but I love how Tom wore this Hermès suit so sharply. It was a standout on the Oscars red carpet with his Piaget watch adding that final touch.
