Best of the 2016 Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet: Dudes in Suits and Couples

28 Feb

Now for the guys and the Independent Spirit Awards delivers on more than just your average black tuxedo with a variety of suit styles and colors. Plus we’ve got some very well dressed couples.

For a look at the many amazing bold and patterned dress plus a new #LadySuitWatch2016 entry head here.Kumail NanjianiAs co-host, Kumail Nanjiani has gone the mostly traditional route, but switches out black for navy and looks dapper as fuck.Jacob TremblayIf you’d told me 6 months ago that a 9-year-old boy would be one of the best dressed stars of this season I would have probably scoffed at the notion. Cue present day and Jacob Tremblay has been showing all the adults how it is done; from sports jackets to tuxedos and now he is nailing the colored suit/bold tie combo.Abrahamm Atta and Cary FukanagaAbraham Attah is also crushing it when it comes to sartorial choices of younger dudes and the 15-year-old Beasts of No Nation star and Best Actor winner delivers in the polka dot bow tie and cool suit department. Oh hey there Cary Fukunaga! Working the lighter suit/dark shirt styling with aplomb. I do miss his glasses/longer hair.Idris ElbaThe hat isn’t completely detracting from all the wonderful things about Idris Elba’s ensemble, but it certainly isn’t doing it any favors. Gonna give him a pass though because he is Idris.

Rami MalekRami Malek continues to kill it on every red (or blue) carpet and this burgundy Calvin Klein suit is multiple heart eye/flames/100 emoji levels of amazing. Shout out to stylist Ilaria Urbinati for the amazing suits she picks for him.Mark Duplass and Katie AseltonA couple of couples and Mark Duplass and Katie Aselton are regular Independent Spirit Awards attendees and they have the whole super cool aesthetic down. Also very much into Duplass’ salt and pepper beard.Zoe Kazan and Paul DanoLast month Zoe Kazan gave an interesting insight into the whole award season process and gave high praise to the talented stylists who give us so much to talk about during this fashion heavy time. Leith Clark has picked out another fantastic dress that is giving me 1960s wedding vibes and as this is the final event on Paul Dano’s nomination calendar this season it makes sense to go out with a super cute bang. Excellent suit choice for Dano too.

Best of the Pre-Emmys Parties – The Frocks

19 Sep

If the pre-Emmys parties are anything to go on then we are in for a treat tomorrow as there are plenty of fabulous outfits on display from #LadySuitWatch2015 to the patterned and super chic dresses below. There’s a strong element of fun at these parties as everyone is relaxed (or at least pretending to be) prior to the big show. This color, print and the caped sleeves makes Troian Bellisario an instant standout. Plus she’s pulling off what could be an awkward length. Plenty of fantastic cute above the knee frocks including Constance Zimmer’s long sleeve black and white floral delight. Currently suffering from UnREAL withdrawal.More florals and an 80s prom feel from Sarah Hyland in Oscar de la Renta. All this needs to complete this theme (or probably doesn’t) is a giant bow. Pockets! And a romantic take on this on trend from Grey’s Anatomy’s Camilla Luddington wearing an A.L.C. dress and Stuart Weitzman heels. Tina Majorino is still rocking one of my fave short hair styles (and I might be biased, but I love a short haircut) and she looks flawless in embellished metallics. A lace delight from Zoe Lister-Jones and a berry lip color I’m now adding to my Wish List (when I find out the shade/brand).   Zoe Kazan’s dress is a patchwork perfection and bf Paul Dano looks dashing in all the brown with a hint of blue. I got Olive Kitteridge on DVD (yes I still get those) for my birthday and I’m really looking forward to having my heart broken all over again. The amazing colourful prints continue with Yvette Nicole Brown in Eliza J. Color blocks for Erinn Hayes and this is giving me all the 70s really cool party vibes. Another ensemble that’s reading my favorite fashion decade (I’m so fine with the heavy 70s influence right now) and Maggie Gyllenhaal needs a cocktail to complete this look.  Getting a Cabaret feeling from Gwendoline Christie’s robe like dress and only Christie can wear something like this and induce all the gleeful clapping.A fun play on black fit and flare with Jane Krawkowski adding a touch of stripes to a classic style.
 This is a really great silhouette on Christina Hendricks and another black dress triumph. I toyed with putting Danielle Brooks in the #LadySuitWatch2015 post as this Lafayette 148 New York dress is tuxedo inspired, but it doesn’t really matter whichever list Brooks goes on as she looks incredible either way.
