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) – 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)

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 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.
