Celebrity Style Update: Kanye West, Zac Efron, Q-Tip, Adam Lambert, Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and more

A few recent photos of celebrity style from the past week, month, etc…
George Clooney in Toronta, Canada
Clooney always manages to portray such effortless easy style. If he’s not attending a black tie event you can count on him to leave 1 or 2 buttons open on his shirt to show a little chest hair, after all– it’s a man world.

Zac Efron at the David Letterman Show
in New York City sporting perfectly polished ankle boots.

When it comes to dress shoes most men opt for the lace-up oxford, some go for the slip-on loafer, but if you’re a truly stylish guy and in need of new dress shoes, look into purchasing a pair of dress boots. Robert Wayne carries some of the best styles at reasonable prices.

Everything he wears fits exactly how it is supposed to for his body type– the cut of the suit, the break in his pants, Mr. Efron is definitely leading in style these days.

Both Q-Tip and Kyser look fresh. Kyser keeps it classic with black Adidas shell-toes while Q-Tip sports a pair of Nike Dunks High Premium East Edition


Diddy’s 40th Birthday Party in New York
Tyrese Gibson, Sean “Diddy” Combs and rapper Baby


I may not care for his attitude, but Sean Combs is a mean dresser.
No one does cocktail attire quite like Diddy.


Nelly


Adam Lambert on CBS’s The Early Show

Believe it or not, I’m loving this look. I don’t think I’m a usual fan of Adam’s style, but the styling on this ensemble, atleast from the waist up, is pretty great. Obviously I’m not saying this look is for everyone, but if you’re going to do goth– do it like this. I think it’s the hair, the placement of the scarf, and the gloves that really bring it all together… hmm, I don’t even mind the metallic finger nail polish.

UPDATE: So after a few request, I found a similarly shaped jacket, it’s now available in our store check it out here.


Question: Where art thou Yeezy?
Answer: In Paris!!!!

The paps finally found our beloved gent, in Paris, doing a little retail therapy at Cavalli and Marney. I’m so glad he’s laying low, chilling, and just generally getting his ish together. Let’s hope he comes back revitalized, humbled, and more creative than ever. And remember Ye’ no more turning hoes into housewives, lol.


Kanye West indulging in retail therapy

Ye’s in mourning… maybe that’s what the all black is about. Both he and Rihanna have been sporting ALOT of black over the past few months– and both of them have been through some pretty traumatic situations. Either way it goes the black looks good on them both, but I’m sure once they’re inwardly happy again we’ll start to see more color in their day to day ensembles. (he’s wearing Acne House VPatch SB shirt,  Martin Margiela regular painted pants, and Hermes crocodile hi-tops)


Brad Pitt at the San Sebastian Film Festival

Kid Cudi and Drake


Pharrell Williams at a Miami Art Basel event

I love how he ONLY rocks BBC jeans, which only makes sense. If you have a clothing line you should wear you own clothes, otherwise it will send a clear message that you’re not passionate about the line and you’re solely doing it for profit. (wearing black Christian Louboutin sneakers from their SS2010 collections)

Pharrell performing on the North American college arena tour. He’s sporting a Billionaire’s Boys Club heart and mind zip hoodie, BBC jeans, and classic New Balances.

Christian McKay and Zac Efron
I likee Christians’s scarf and Zac’s blazer
A heather grey blazer is a must for men and women
this year, and next, and just in general.


Fonzworth Bentley at a Gillette Fusion Event in DC


Jay-Z at the opening of Fela! on Broadway


Que from Day 26 at a Gillette Fusion event

Que definitely has the best style in group Day 26,
he loves to rock the hoodie and leather jacket look.

Sooo, this is Pete Wentz

Yea, I didn’t recognize him either when I first saw the photo. I’m loving his new look, seriously, whoever is styling him- keep up the good work.


Pete Wentz
The profile is so sick… the jacket, the boots, the overall swag.


Day 26


Tristan Wilds


Columbus Short at Planet Hollywood promoting movie Armored

Now I hate to do this, because Columbus is a good-looking guy and he’s buddies with one of my close friends, but gentlemen this is a perfect example of how not to dress. Okok, let me back up, there are great components in his outfit– the pea coat, white slight v-neck tee, grey trousers, textured grey scarf, but the fit the FIT is sooo off and he looks sloppy.

Blast from the Past

… and speaking of Grammys, Maxwell received 6 nominations– very well deserved. What’s the deal with his shirt? Looks to be an upscale re-invention of the “tie-shirt”. Hmmm, it could just be fabric on the placket, but I have a feeling if he buttoned the shirt up it would look like a skinny tie.

Trey Songz celebrating his 25th birthday at the M2 Ultra Lounge in NYC
I love his textured damask print jacket.

That was alot of celebrity style to take in in huh?

The one thing that they all had in common was color– everyone was wearing black or grey with a little blue here and there. But that’s mainly because its winter and blacks, greys, and navys are the most popular colors for wintery clothing.

So whose recent style do you like, dislike, sorta kinda like….

2009 BET AWARDS: Jamie Foxx, Ne-Yo, Michael Jackson Tributes, and Best Dressed

Ne-Yo and Jamie Foxx

To be honest, I rarely watch BET (for obvious reasons), but I knew they would be paying tribute to Michael Jackson so I had to tune in. And I must say, Jamie Foxx had me rolling the entire show. He and Ne-Yo dominated this years Awards with their musical ability and I liked their many wardrobe changes into MJ inspired ensembles… basically their jackets were cool. Aside from them everyone else was decently dressed, no crazy ridiculousness except for maybe the over-sized chains of T-Pain and Souljah Boy. Check out some of the photos from the 2009 BET Awards:

Jamie’s performances were hilarious

Souljah Boy
Sean Paul

Bobb’e J. Thompson

Fonzworth Bentley

Fonzworth Bentley and actress Faune A. Chambers

Oakland Raiders linebacker Kirk Morrison

Trey Songz

Ne-Yo
(btw, anyone know what type shoes these are?)

Maxwell

Drake
Alot of stars wore red, white, and jean– a classic MJ color combo.

Wyclef Jean

LeBron James

Anthony Anderson, Keke Palmer and Bobb’e J. Thompson
I really liked Anthony Anderson’s ensemble- the bold color combination, was handled in a very classic way…very pretty. And most of all the fit was dead-on for his body type. I looked through a few of his pictures from past events this year and I must say– whoever dresses him does a GREAT job. I think I’m going to do a profile on him. If you’re a large guy- Anthony Anderson is the perfect person to use for inspiration.

Drake aka Drizzy

Jeremy Piven

Actor Jimmy Jean-Louis

“2009 MTV Movie Awards Most Talked About Moments”

Urban Gent

JC Chasez
very dapper, i love the shoes

Bentley Fonzworth and girlfriend/actress Fuane Chambers
perfectly dressed as usual

Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, Bradley Cooper
a very neat trio
this is a great example of how your pants should fit

Danny McBride and Will Ferrell
the funny guys keep is casual

Tyrese and Souljah Boy Tell Em
nice… minus Tyrese’s shoes

I think this is the best I’ve ever seen Souljah Boy
though he’s unnecessarily blinged out, I like it

Zachary Quinto

Brody Jenner
he’s always so flawlessly groomed- hair, face, everything

Zachary Levi

Zac Efron
this is my first time, since… i dont know when
that i actually don’t like the way he looks
he’s ALWAYS look perfect, but we all have our days…
he just looks like he got dressed in a hurry

Taylor Lautner
one of the perfect looking Twilight guys
(nice creative recs)

Steve-O
gotta love it, lol…

King of Leon

Quest Crew
very edgy and casual, interesting mix

Jonah Hill
though i like him, i must say, this is sloppy
to my husky readers, this isn’t how you want to end up
he has some great pieces, but just failed in execution
(to fix it: jacket should have been tailored/fitted to him, slightly larger pants maybe one size up, tailored fit shirt preferably in a complementing bold color)

Tyrese

Cam Gingandet
i love it, he looks great
this style isn’t for everyone, but he pulls it off well
(another one of the perfect looking Twilight guys)

Rick Foxx

Aziz Ansari

MTV Canada host
Jessi Crickshank and Dan Levy
I admire Dan’s Thom Browne inspired look

Lil Wayne

Twilight wins for best movie.

My favorite….
hmmmm, it’s a toss up between:

- Mr.Fonzworth
- Cam Gingandet
- Souljah Boy (minus the chain)
- Dan Levy (mtv canada)

Who Do You Think Had the Best Look?

2009 Academy Award Photos: A Few of the OSCARS Best-Dressed

81st Annual Academy Awards held at Kodak Theatre on February 22, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. Some of my favorites from the 2009 Oscars.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Such an amazing clear picture
Notice how Brad’s mustache and goat-tee are rugged yet neat.
His hair perfectly styled– he’s so polished.

Daniel Craig and Satsuki Mitchell
Mr. James Bond himself and his screenwriter girlfriend

Halle Berry and boyfriend model Gabriel
A very handsome couple.

Tyler Perry and Taye Diggs

John Legend

Zac Efron

Brad Pitt

Dominic Cooper
Mickey Rourke
This is such an improvement from last time
More Brad and Angelina:


They’re seriously the perfect Hollywood couple
And somehow they ALWAYS look flawless on the red carpet.

Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black

Fashion designer Valentino Garavani
Sean Penn

Tyrese and Terrell Owens

BEST DRESSED:

Zac Efron
ALWAYS brings it the hardest on the red carpet.
He’s so consistent, always modern.
He’s wearing a modified version of the classic bow-tie,
very simple and streamlined.

Daniel Craig

If you saw the live red carpet broadcast then you would have to
agree that Daniel Craig was by far the best-dressed. Yes, his tux is simple and looks very similar to the other guys, but it was the way he wore it- with such confidence and swag…

Perfect Attire: The 40th Annual NAACP Image Awards Photos

It’s unusual for every guy who hits the red carpet to look almost flawless… but somehow they did. (well, most of them anyway)

40th Annual NAACP Image Awards
at the Shrine auditorium in Los Angeles February 12, 2009.
Blair Underwood
Very Nice… A well fitted 3 piece black suit can never go wrong

Danny Glover

Top Model Eva Marcille and actor Lance Gross
An very attractive couple. Now guys, THIS is how you wear black and white. And again, we see the polka dot trend, but this time solely used in his pocket square.

Tyler Williams and KeKe Palmer
For all the young Urban Gent’s looking for prom advice
this is a nice look by Tyler and actually… this would be a nice look for your date as well

Brian White
Simple, but nice.

Seal
I wish his tie was straight, but this a clean simple look-
all black (like many guys on the red carpet these days), but instead of a black tie he opted for a skinny tie that compliments his skin tone.

Tyler Perry and Halle Berry

Muhammad Ali and wife Yolanda Williams
receiving the President Awards

NAACP Chairman Julian Bond and Rosario Dawson

Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, and Jennifer Hudson
They all look flawless.

Aww don’t they look adorable.
Russell Simmons receiving the Vanguard Award with his daughters Aoki and Ming Lee

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and Danny Glover

Sean “Diddy” Combs
I’m starting to notice that this is his typical black-tie wardrobe
(but as they say “if its not broken, don’t fix it”…
meaning he looks good every time he wears this look)
Hill Harper


2009 Grammy Awards Photos

I’m a few days late, but here’s a few pictures from Sunday nights
Grammy Awards in Los Angeles
.

Jay-Z looked great.
(I heard he was pretty mad when walking the red carpet because of the Rihanna and Chris Brown news.

Nas chose to wear creme and white on the carpet and he looks really clean.

TI and his “situation” Tiny
T.I looks very nice and he looked even better live on the red carpet.

Anthony Hamilton and wife Tarsha

Robin Thicke and wife Paula Patton

Will.I.Am
His look is always different, but to be honest, I have yet to see him with a very cohesive look, something about the styling of his looks are always off…

Flo Rida

ColdPlay
I like it when groups match, but I’m not completely a fan of the colors of these jackets. I wish they were a few shades darker- making the look less playful.

Jaguars

Lady Antebellum

Jack Owen
I really like the color combination: grey, purple, and white.

ALOT OF THE GUYS WORE SHADES ON THE RED CARPET:

Ne-Yo and girlfriend
(he’s making sure the rumors of him being gay stop)

LL Cool J

Diddy
Very nice jacket…

Flo Rida
I wish he would have worn different shade- ones with a bigger frame.
The polka dot Tie/Pocket Square combo was okay.
(I guess he and LL were on the same page)

Jay-Z
Interesting pinky ring.

Big Boi
He looks sloppy. His jacket is too big and his pants are too long.
He should have gotten it all altered. And he should have worn different a different shirt, shoes, and hat.

Ne-Yo and girlfriend
Something about Ne-Yo always throws me off and I’m pretty sure it’s the tilting of the hat, but I guess he looks nice. His girlfriend looks good though.

T-Pain
Looking horrible as usual.

The Jonas Brothers
Looking flawless as usual

Young Jeezy
I must say, as a whole, the “gansta” rappers really dressed to impress this year.
They treated the Grammys like a black-tie event instead of like a night out at the club.
I hope they keep it up.

There he goes, our favorite guy… Lupe the Fiasco.

Jay-Z and Kanye backstage

The “Swagga Like Us” Crew minus M.I.A
Kanye West, T.I, Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne
(sporting a nice plaid scarf)

Sir Paul McCartney

Repping Georgia, the duo Sugarland took home 3 grammys!
Songwriter Jennifer Nettles and Kristan Bush
Black on black has been very popular on the red carpet this year so far.

close-up of Anthony Hamilton’s attire.
I feel like its too much, but I admire his efforts.
The tie on its own is cool because of the burgundy outline…
I wonder who made it. And I like the pocket square as well.
I’m just not a fan of the suit material he chose.

Summary of Looks:
-Black on black
-Shades
-Polka dots
-Scarves
Skinny ties, bowties, and velvet were also still heavily present.
