Obsessed in Burberry!

Movie Fashion Icon: Henry Cavill

Movie Fashion Icon: Henry Cavill

So, it’s been a while, but here is a new fashion icon who has influenced my style for the summer season.

As you know, the updated ‘Man of Steel’ is releasing in June this year and the role of Superman has been taken by fellow Brit, Henry Cavill. Those of you may have heard he was dubbed ‘Most Unluckiest Man in Hollywood’ because he missed out roles such as Edward Cullen in ‘Twilight’. Though his luck has just got good!

Henry recently shot new images for the June issue of British GQ Magazine! (The Gentleman’s Bible) and I thought I could show you those images and explore Henry’s personal style of casual.

(Above) – Henry is wearing an outfit from Tom Ford. This suit is very well tailored and the check texture is very subtle yet creates a statement.

(Above) – this outfit is something very casual, yet made more sophisticated by adding a navy trench. This outfit could be worn out in the park, at a meal in the evening or a party.

Henry is seen usually wearing comfortable clothing. He is seen often wearing white shirts and blue jeans.
If you’re looking for comfort, he’s a fashion icon to look up to. Especially when the weather is hot! Don’t be afraid to make a statement with simple white shirts. (Below)

So what do you think about this generation’s Superman? I love his classic style and this style can suit all ages. Sometimes it’s nice to wear just a simple white shirt and jeans but still making a statement! Let me know what you think?

Rising Star Style: Alden Ehrenreich

I recently watched ‘Beautiful Creatures’ and I was amazed by the brilliant acting of newcomer Alden Ehrenreich. He recently wore an amazing suit at the LA premiere of ‘Beautiful Creatures’.

The suit is impeccably tailored to perfection and the colour of burgundy and a dark claret look amazing. The suit is by designer Albert Hammond Jr.

I love this suit. The colour is very on trend and the combination of the brown and burgundy tie and brogue combo create a laid back and suave look.
What do you think about this suit? Alden is for sure a new fashion icon and rising star.

Movie Fashion Icon of the Week: Matthew Goode – Stoker

Stoker, a new movie releases this week has generated a lot of buzz. I begin Movie Fashion Icon of the week, so I could show you inspirations from the movie and premiere outfits.

This week sees British actor and star of the creepy Stoker, Matthew Goode. He plays a slick serial killer type named ‘Uncle Charlie’. Here are a few styles which are very classic and always trendy.

This still from the movie (below).
This style pairs a contrast of a rust coloured sweater with a pair of cream coloured chinos and a cream shirt. This very retro look is emphasised by the amazing brown sunglasses, which is a very big trend this spring.

A very casual, yet preppy look which always looks good. A pair of dark blue jeans is the best look with the black sweater. Wearing smart shoes or brogues will also create a sophisticated look.

Here (below) is Matthew at the premiere in London for Stoker. Where he slicks back his hair and dons a dark grey/navy suit. The use of the maroon stained tie looks really interesting, giving it a special flair.

Oscar Fashion Alert: Eddie Redmayne’s Loafers

So the Red Carpet at the Oscars is the most watched Carpet, accessible all over the world to see. One trend which altered a traditional Gentleman’s suit was seen on male fashion icon ‘Eddie Redmayne’. Due to high demands on Eddie Redmayne’s style, I’m focusing on his choice of wearing Alexander McQueen Black Velvet Loafers.

The choice of wearing these amazing loafers was a style risk, but has divided fashion critics attention. Personally I think Eddie can do no wrong fashion-wise and this is a unique and adds personality to the traditional suit also by Alexander McQueen.

A close up of the amazing loafers. Velvet is a trend and is recommended as it is an ongoing trend of the season and year.
