Male Celebrity Look of the Week | Menswear Roundup

On the red carpet, male celebrities are doing well. Last week, to attend the best events of the year, four handsome guys were dressed to impress. Therefore, they decided to sacrifice the traditional black suit on the altar of fashion.

The rapper and actor Common was attending the 10th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards in a stripped brown Givenchy suit. Instead of a classic white shirt, the blouse was matching the rest. An unexpected detail that was really much welcome.

During the Oscar night, Viggo Mortensen was really elegant in a navy three-piece Dior suit. Simple but efficient.

The same night, Terrence Howard chose to wear an amazing made-to-measure La Perla smocking jacket. His Christian Louboutin shoes were finishing up a classy yet relaxed outfit.


For the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, the Moonlight actor Ashton Sanders was highly fashionable in his red wool plaid kilt by Fear of God.

You’d be darned to find a day of the year as prestigious as the first Monday of May. First held in 1948, the Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, was founded to encourage donations from New York’s high society and today the most recognisable faces from fashion, art, music and film gather to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and commemorate the opening of the museums latest exhibition. Founded by Eleanor Lambert, Anna Wintour has taken reign of the event since 1995, raising almost $175 million and enlisting the most prominent names to co-chair the events including the likes of Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Marc Jacobs and Gisele Bundchen. The 2018 Met Gala, which also marks the 70th anniversary of the soiree will be co-chaired by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace and sponsors include Apple, Condé Nast, Farfetch, H&M, Maison Valentino and Warner Bros.

The 80s were a fabulous time in fashion. Across the fashion capitals, structured shoulders, bodysuits and sequins were amongst some of the biggest and wildest trends commanding centre stage. While all of that was happening, somewhere, under the warm Californian sun, Shawn Stüssy was somewhere printing t shirts with the same signature that appeared on his surfboards. Probably little did he know that decades later his printed trademark signature on simple graphic tees would decades later play a part in streetwear becoming one of the most lucrative fashion business models of the 21st century.
