Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the guys who hit the red carpet and royal wedding this week.

Kendrick Sampson: The actor was probably the best dressed at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, opting to wear an orange Eidos suit. Of course he wanted to complement the iconic Veuve Clicquot label which provided the backdrop to the step and repeat, but what I love most is that the shade is both summery and autumnal all at once, and that he didn’t opt for black or navy shoes. A Movado watch rounded out this well thought-out effort.

Ricky Martin: Who knew Ricky Martin and Princess Eugenie were friends? The singer was one of the many guests who attended the royal wedding on Friday. He was outfitted by Berluti, wearing a black wool morning coat, ivory jacquard vests with baby blue silk tie and pocket square exclusively designed by Kris Van Assche.

Princess Eugenie of York Weds Jack Brooksbank In Peter Pilotto

Princess Eugenie of York Weds Jack Brooksbank In Peter Pilotto

Princess Eugenie of York married Jack Brooksbank at a ceremony today (October 12) in front of family and celebrities on a very windy day in Windsor, England.

The gown, designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, was simple and elegant; notably, the princess chose not to have a veil, showing off the low back of the dress.

The low back of the dress was included in the design at the request of Princess Eugenie, who had surgery, aged 12, to correct scoliosis.

The condition causes the spine to bend to one side, and can make the back appear rounded and the shoulder blades more prominent.

Before the wedding, the princess told a journalist: “I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that.”

As someone who also has had a scar on her back from a child, I really commend her not hiding this part of her on her big day.

The fabric includes a number of symbols that are meaningful to Princess Eugenie as motifs.

A thistle representing Scotland acknowledges the couple’s fondness for Balmoral, and a shamrock representing Ireland is a nod to the Ferguson family.

The other symbols used including the York Rose – a nod to the princess’s family name of York – and ivy, which represents the couple’s home, Ivy Cottage, in Kensington Palace.

Princess Eugenie wore the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, lent to her by the Queen, which made up of brilliant and rose cut diamonds pave set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side.

Her diamond and emerald drop ear-rings are a her wedding gift from the groom.

The wedding bouquet consists of lily of the valley, stephanotis pips, hints of baby blue thistles, white spray roses and trailing ivy.

It was created by floral designer Rob Van Helden’s sister, Patrice Van Helden Oakes.

The look was complete with Charlotte Olympia shoes.

Princess Eugenie Of York’s Royal Wedding

Princess Eugenie Of York's Wedding

There were many more guests who joined Cara Delevingne, Poppy Delevingne and Naomi Campbell in Windsor, England today (October 12) for the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York and Mr. Jack Brooksbank .

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge: I was delighted to see such a vibrant raspberry hue from the Duchess, and I was also left in awe by the tailoring of this Alexander McQueen piece. The silhouette is nothing we haven’t seen before, but I’m just grateful it’s not beige. Going matchy once again, a veiled headpiece by Philip Treacy and velvet heels by Jimmy Choo completed her look.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex: This beautiful Azzedine Alaia had a fabulous fit and flare silhouette with the signature trims. I’m not usually a fan of Sophie’s style, so this a rare win for her. The royal topped the look off with a Jane Taylor hat.

Princess Beatrice: While I do like this custom ink blue Ralph & Russo Couture design, the turban didn’t work for me. Am I alone in believing it ages the Princess taking her from sister-of-the-bride to mother-of-the-bride? Ralph & Russo accessories completed her look.

Cara Delevingne In Emporio Armani – Princess Eugenie Of York’s Wedding

Cara Delevingne In Burberry - Princess Eugenie Of York's Wedding

Cara Delevingne joined her sister in Windsor, England today (October 12) for the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York and Mr. Jack Brooksbank.

As we know, style-wise, the sisters couldn’t be more different. And that was further compounded when Cara arrived at the wedding wearing an Emporio Armani tuxedo, accompanied with a tie and a bowler hat, which is pull off magnificently – despite the toothpick.

However, this look outfit broke dress protocol for the ceremony.

As we all know, Cara has never been one to play by the rules, but for those who are interested, the strict code for the wedding was ladies to wear a day dress with hat and gentleman were to wear a morning coat.

Poppy Delevingne In Oscar de la Renta – Princess Eugenie Of York’s Wedding

Poppy Delevingne In Oscar de la Renta - Princess Eugenie Of York's Wedding

Poppy Delevingne attended the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York and Mr. Jack Brooksbank this morning (October 12) in Windsor, England.

The model wore a laser cut high low dress styled with a matching coat and brooch from Oscar de la Renta’s Resort 2019 collection, with Christian Louboutin shoes and a hat from Victoria Grant.

Between the light-blue colour, coordination and hat, I was swooning over this ensemble.

I have a feeling some might believe that the cut-outs are a little too risqué for this formal event, but I love how it brings effervescent feeling to the look.

I adore this. It’s just a shame about the black shoes.

You may remember that Lady Gaga wore this same dress last month on the Ellen show.

Naomi Campbell In Ralph & Russo Couture – Princess Eugenie Of York’s Wedding

Naomi Campbell In Ralph & Russo Couture - Princess Eugenie Of York's Wedding

The wedding of Princess Eugenie of York to Jack Brooksbank took place today (October 12) at Windsor Castle in England.

Aside from the fashion, these events are always fascinating affairs, as you get to see who the royals have befriended, and I have to say I was surprised to see Naomi Campbell at this event. Who knew she was kicking it with Naomi?

The model was looking very elegant on the wind-swept morning wearing a Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture metallic black ombré cocktail dress and cropped cape, enriched with crystal stones, glass bugles and devoré ostrich feather edging.

I’m usually one for joyous colours for weddings, but Naomi was looks uber glamorous – as expected – in this look.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Official Wedding Portraits

The House of Givenchy have been kind enough to share the beautiful portraits from the royal wedding of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry.

They were shot by Alexi Lubomirski, who also captured the couple for their engagement portraits.

In the first image the Duke and the Duchess are captured on the East Terrace at Windsor Castle.

The second and third images are more of a family affair, which include Her Majesty The Queen and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Much has been made about the simplicity of Meghan’s wedding gown, plus comparison have been made to the Givenchy gown Audrey Hepburn wore in the 1964 issue of Vogue, but I’m with those of you who believe this was the right approach.

It was her second wedding, and Meghan wanted a dress with an “elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring and relaxed demeanour”. I think at this period in her life it was very much the right choice.

I have a strong belief that if it wasn’t for the grand occasion, she would’ve gone for an even simpler look.
