Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here’s a quick roundup of some of the guys who caught my eye on the red carpet this week.

Rami Malek: For the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ New York premiere, the actor wore a Givenchy Fall 2018 tailored plaid suit which some might think was tame by his standards, but there was plenty of sartorial elegance oozing from this look to keep me fully captivated.

Troye Sivan: The actor joined Nicole Kidman on the red carpet for the ‘Boy Erased’ LA premiere in Helmut Lang. We often have girls borrowing from the boys, but on this occasion Troye was borrowing from the girls, as this oatmeal Spring 2019 suit hails from the upcoming womenswear collection. Some might find this hard to believe as the suits sharp tailoring especially the wide lapels leans strongly in the direction of menswear, but we’ve seen many cross-overs lately.

Sam Heughan: I have a feeling that I don’t need to tell you that this suit is by Saint Laurent. The classic black and white, plus the fit and style of the suit speaks for itself.

Roselyn Sanchez In Maria Lucia Hohan & Paula Patton In Helmut Lang – 9th Annual AAFCA Awards

Roselyn Sanchez and Paula Patton put on a coordinated display at the 9th Annual AAFCA Awards on Wednesday (February 7) in Los Angeles, California.

Roselyn Sanchez: The Puerto Rican singer-actress brought bohemian elegance with her Maria Lucia Hohan gown and Gilan emerald tassel earrings. I’m sure the sheer skirt will be an issue for some, but it ties in the details on the bodice. And without the lace, it would have just been a plain strapless dress.

Paula Patton: Contrasting the femininity of the gown, the actress donned a Helmut Lang suit. The piece on its own is sharp yet sensual from the crisp tailoring and high hemline, but I’m afraid it’s suffering from too many competing elements. The statement earrings fight with the shirt and tie. Plus, the ruffled socks and Gianvito Rossi shoes make it feel almost like a performance piece. Simplicity would have been best.

Menswear Weekend Roundup

The weekend brought with it a number of menswear looks, from Paris to New York City, with many guys attending pre-Grammy events.

Timothée Chalamet: The actor was at the Paris premiere of ‘Call Me By Your Name’ on Friday (January 26), where he switched up the suit-and-tie look of late with this Berluti ensemble. I like how he effortlessly married the sleek leather blazer and cropped trousers with a white T-shirt for a casual flair.

Jared Leto: Before taking to the stage to perform at the MusiCares Person of the Year honouring Fleetwood Mac on Friday (January 26) in New York City, Jared was on the red carpet in this Helmut Lang Seen by Shayne Oliver Spring 2018 look—thus answering all our questions if it was indeed possible for him to wear something other than clashing colours, crazy prints, and floor-dragging pants. This pristine all-white number is his best look in quite some time.

Shawn Mendes: At the GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Honoring Jay-Z on Saturday (January 27) in New York City, Shawn wore a sleek Givenchy Spring 2018 black suit that I loved all the more because he kept the gold lip-printed shirting underneath for some tongue-in-cheek pizzazz.

Solange Knowles In Helmut Lang Seen By Shayne Oliver – Surface Magazine Awards

Solange Knowles has been quiet for a while, no doubt basking in the success of her number 1 album, ‘A Seat at the Table’, but she made a return to the limelight by posting a picture on Instagram last night, where she announced that she was off to host the Surface Magazine Awards.

The first thing you notice is that her Diane Ross-style afro, has been replaced for an edgier shorter platinum blonde do.

Her new hair could be signalling a new style direction entirely as she was decked out in a mullet-style Helmut Lang Seen By Shayne Oliver Spring 2018 look which feels a world away from the fashion savvy singer we’ve always known her as.

On Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry or Fergie, I would’ve reluctantly brought this look. On Solange, I don’t.

I’m hopeful this is a one off.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini In Marni & Helmut Lang – BBC Radio 1 Studios

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was spotted arriving at the BBC Radio 1 Studios on Tuesday (October 7) in London, England.

Following her glamorous gown at the Pride of Britain Awards on Monday night, the mood was more laidback on this occasion, with the ‘X Factor’ judge wearing a crewneck Marni printed t-shirt styled with Helmut Lang leather trousers to add a modern urban edge to her look.

I would’ve expected a pair of edgy sandals with this look; however, Cheryl completed her look with a ladylike pair of Lucy Choi ‘Soho’ croc-effect leather and perplex pumps.
