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.

20130506-112042 AM.jpg

(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?

Outfit Of The Day: Snow Spring Style

Outfit Of The Day: Snow Spring Style

Hey, I have just started my personal section of my blog, and this section is all about my personal style, how I put items together, and some inspirational images!

As you can see, today was a very cold day in the UK and I decided to create classic black-and-white style with my sophisticated outfit! It really reminded me of a winter wonderland today!

20130322-090505 PM.jpg

20130322-090539 PM.jpg

In these two shots of myself on my first photoshoot in freezing conditions, I wore:
– a Comfortable black and white cotton blazer from ZARA MAN. (£70)
– a long-lasting, wind-blowing H&M Scarf (£12)
– Skinny fit Black jeans from TOPMAN(£38)
– T-shirt from ‘Taxonomy’ by TOPMAN (£28)
– Sunglasses from JOY (£5)
– Hybrid brogue/hightops from ZARA MAN (£100)

Hairstyle was inspired by Justin Timberlake. Look at his new video ‘Mirrors and Suit&Tie’

Updated: Effortless Quiffs

Updated: Effortless Quiffs

I just recently got a haircut which I felt was perfect for this seasons upcoming spring hairstyle. This style is very much recommended to all males as it suits all ages. Previously I displayed a few images of what hairstyles are popular. Now, I’ll show you images of my hairstyle which is most surely my best hairstyle in a while!

(Below) is the Spring 2013 Effortless Quiff.

I really love this hairstyle and it is similarly reminiscent of Justin Timberlake’s recent ‘Suit&Tie’ hairstyle.

But I actually was inspired by this image, which I have previously shown. (Below)

20130312-101331 PM.jpg

This picture also inspired me to get highlights. I don’t like the idea of going for drastic changes, so I opted for a soft light brown scattered on the top of the head, whilst also encouraged to create a stand-out look by including light blonde highlights, which are very subtle, to avoid looking like Rogue in X-Men.

I think spring (hopefully) will be a positive bright season and you’ll be able to soak up some sun and show off some effortless Quiffs. Attempt to keep the top long, whilst trimming the sides short. Please make sure in order to achieve this hairstyle, do not create a short back of the hair, as it could come across as very bold and could be regrettable. Opt for a relaxed look. Blow drying after a shower, with slight product used to create a luxury texture will work wonders!

Thanks, let me know about your hair queries!

Oz: The Great & Powerful Style

As Wizard of Oz prequel, ‘Oz: The Great & Powerful’ releases this week, I have noticed Oz inspired fashion online and a trend which is sure to be popular in the next coming months!

20130306-102940 PM.jpg

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.

20130306-103620 PM.jpg

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.

20130304-055108 PM.jpg

20130304-055144 PM.jpg

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.

20130303-012235 PM.jpg

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.

20130303-012842 PM.jpg

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.

Burberry Ambassadors: Eddie Redmayne & Cara Delevigne – Style Icons!

Eddie Redmayne is currently popular on my blog due to high demands of his style, so here I will show you his campaign shots for Burberry. These shots also include rising supermodel, Cara Delevigne, who has been very popular within the industry recently. Have a look at the stylish Burberry looks.

20130223-083253 PM.jpg

This coat, Eddie wears (above) is stunning and very cool! Carla’s outfit is very reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes and an interesting take on it. Beautiful olive and tan brown tones suit the autumn image

20130223-083425 PM.jpg

This image (above), is a very cool image as the two display great style and an even greater chemistry. The tweed suit of Eddie is still on trend and the blushes colour coat of Cara is very unique.

20130223-083742 PM.jpg

The coat (above) Eddie is wearing is a comfortable and statement coat in the colour of a tan/olive contrast. Whilst Cara is wearing a multidirectional striped coat which allows it to be
flattering to her slim frame and figure.

20130223-085219 PM.jpg

This image (above) shows Gorgeous shades of the colour of brown. The Brown is also in the tortoiseshell effect which can be seen on Eddie. Whilst Cara’s glasses are much more experimental and high-fashion. This could be worn on a true fashionista or a daring character!

I hope you loved the Burberry style of these two fashion icons. Want more posts on Eddie & Cara? Let me know your favourite style.

Eddie Redmayne: Young Fashion Icon

Eddie Redmayne: Young Fashion Icon

Eddie Redmayne: Star of Hit Musical adaptation, Les Miserables, has shown the world what awesome style he has. This guy has worn the best suits I have ever seen, which are always impeccably fitted and tailored to perfection. If I was to wear a smart suit, I’d look at Eddie for fashion inspiration. He loves to take a risk on the red carpet by changing the colours and materials of his suits. Always daring and statement suits are in order whenever Eddie Redmayne is there. Let’s look at his best suits!

1) Teal Velvet Suit

20130222-063316 PM.jpg

This suit is AMAZING! When I saw this beautiful Burberry Velvet suit worn at the Les Miserables UK premiere, I seriously could not believe my eyes. I have always been interested in velvet suits and I see them being this years biggest trend. The colour of this suit looks amazing and is very unique when photographed and it is perfectly tailored . Burberry is ideally the perfect designer for suits at the moment. This was custom made for Burberry spokesperson and model, Eddie. The brown brogues are a perfect when accompanying the suit and is cooler than the generic black.

2) Midnight Blue BAFTA suit

20130222-064307 PM.jpg

This suit was worn at the 2013 EE BAFTAs. This suit is not velvet but another daring statement suit as Eddie was the only one in a midnight blue suit. The blue bow tie looks good against the white shirt and black shoes suit the winter evening event. Similar cheap versions of this Burberry suit could be found at Reiss or Topman.

3) Royal Blue Redmayne

20130222-064911 PM.jpg

This Royal blue suit was worn by Eddie at the New York premiere is really slick. The check designed brown tie creates a casual style and the red pocket square creates a cool contrast. The charcoal black shoes are casual and could also be worn with a dark pair of jeans. But it creates a comfortable look.

4) SAG Awards Brown suit

20130222-065559 PM.jpg

This brown suit is great for a daytime event. I love the change with this suit and brown is a great colour against pale skin. This velvet Hugo Boss suit looks suave with the glossy black shoes. The sun makes the suit shimmer and stand out.

I love all 4 suits and cant decide which one I love the most. Which one of these suits is your favourite? Is he a fashion icon for the younger generation. Are velvet suits on trend? Let me know

Andrew Garfield: Spidey Fashion Sense

Andrew Garfield: Spidey Fashion Sense

The current Amazing Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield is a current inspiration for mens fashion at the moment. His casual look consists of a slim pair of black/blue skinny jeans, usually paired with converses/trainers or preppy brogues. Whilst he pairs the jeans with a pop of a colourful shirt, a graphic tee or a chunky coat.

Whilst on the red carpets, Andrew never fails to impress. My favourite look is the Balenciaga suit he wore at the French Premiere. (Below), Andrew pairs this Spider-Man red suit with a pale blue shirt, which also has a pop of red under the blue making it suit perfectly. The use of no tie makes it more relaxed and cooler, because a tie would make it too much. The maroon brogues complete this outfit to create a perfect look, off the runway.

20130217-020513 PM.jpg

This other outfit (below) is very casual yet has the star look to it, due to the statement shirt, which really pops!
Andrew has paired the light red with a slim pair of dark blue jeans, and a simple pair of plimsolls. This outfit is perfect for a day out in the sun! Pair it with a pair of sunglasses and you’re good to go!

20130217-021018 PM.jpg

Another great way to create a smart/casual look is to look at Andrew’s next outfit. Here (below) he creates a preppy smart and chilled look in one. He pairs a smart navy blazer with a salmon pink shirt, creating a relaxed contrast between the colours. While he pairs it with a pair of blue skinny jeans and some edgy worn out converse, his personal style. This is a great way to dress down at work or even to wear on a night out. To sophisticate the outfit more, just pair the outfit with a nice pair of smarter shoes.

20130217-021536 PM.jpg

Overall, Andrew loves to keep it smart and sophisticated yet he looks cool in his casual gear. A great fashion role model in British fashion, and I think more British men will dress like him.

Like Andrew’s preppy yet casual look? Let me know! What’s your favourite outfit. Is he a style icon? Is he a good spider-man?

Ryan Gosling: Style Icon

Ryan Gosling: Style Icon

Ryan Gosling has certainly defined how every man should dress. From casual jeans and a tee to a blue tuxedo. He likes to try different styles, being defined as a Style Icon for Mens fashion of the 21st Century.

20130216-055516 PM.jpg

This suit (above) was worn by Ryan at the ‘Ides of March’ Premiere. The Olive coloured suit is so cool and special. Here his tie is matching the suit which looks very good, and the patterned design on the tie gives an edge to the already show-stopping suit! The use of black creates a sophisticated style and the white shirt makes it more casual and relaxed.

20130216-055922 PM.jpg

The suit (displayed above) where Ryan wore this suave brown suit at the premiere of ‘Gangster Squad’. Ryan, with his mother, shows off a three-piece suit, where the waistcoat looks great. Waistcoats are in trend and look good when matched with the suit. My favourite item here is the leather studded shoes, which is such a daring yet contemporary shoe. The shoe completes the outfit to make it a stand out piece of fashion.

20130216-060720 PM.jpg

The suit (above) worn by Ryan at the Crazy, Stupid, Love premiere is a unique take on the classic black suit. This time enhanced with silver threaded check all over the suit. The design comes across well in images.

20130216-060922 PM.jpg

The outfit (above) really represents the effortless style of Ryan Gosling. It’s very clean, casual and effortless. The stripy cardigan and black jeans gives off a casual look, whilst the rocker boots give a effortless take on a clean look. The sunglasses enhance his star image making him seem very cool and the chain around his neck adds some individual funk to his outfit, making it more interesting.

TIP: enhancing your style with little changes. From Ryan’s style we can see he likes to make a usual look, unusual (in a great way). He clearly understands fashion. Accessories are always a plus. Not too many, for example; a pair of sunglasses, a chain/necklace, a bracelet/watch or a cool ring. I also think the making traditional, untraditional is great also, like his studded shoes or a patterned tie. Never be afraid to think outside of the box and look at Ryan’s fashion for inspiration. I certainly have.
