James Franco stars as the eponymous Oz, but I have spotted the suits and clothing inspired by Oz.

Let us enter the Emerald City…

Famous fashion blogger Adam Gallagher is my fashion icon! He has created the perfect outfit pairing an emerald blazer and trousers with wooden brogues and a tweed/brown waistcoat!

The Yellow laces give an homage to the yellow brick road and keep the outfit interesting and thought about carefully through the details.

You can find a majority of these styles on the current high street such as Topman and River Island. Check your local stores for a whimsical wardrobe change!

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.

Current Trend: Beards

Well if you’ve been watching awards season for the past few months, you’d realise that there was one trend that seemed to occur all the time, which was beards!

Oscar Winner and man of the The moment, Ben Affleck has been rocking a beard, which he kept for months on end. Since the success of Argo, he has kept the beard, which may be a positive or negative. However, it has sparked much conversation about the trend of beards in Hollywood.

Look below at the current stubble styles of the moment.

Ben Affleck – Very well suited beard, which suits his face shape and the thickness is not too thick.

20130301-073428 PM.jpg

George Clooney – Bens partner in crime and producer of Argo, sports a grey beard which is apparently for a new film role. This beard ages him, but George suits the older, grey look. Which makes him look great.

20130301-073710 PM.jpg

Chris Pine – This is a great example of making stubble look good on the Star Trek star. It’s not too scruffy you here has that effortless yet Prim look.

20130301-073805 PM.jpg

Jason Clarke – the Zero Dark Thirty star opts for a scruffier luck yet this suits the relaxed style yet it is a unique style as it is not as sophisticated.

20130301-073952 PM.jpg

Hugh Jackman – Les Miserables Oscar nominee sports a jet black polished beard, This is a different style as the facial hair is thinner on the sides andy thick around the box beard.

So Guys, do you like The current trend of beards? I think a thicker beard creates maturity, while light stubble creates an effortless yet cool and rugged look. Try which one you like the most!

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.
