Men’s Red Carpet Fashion: 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, Kid Cudi, Jonas Brothers, Travis Barker, Trey Songz, Jay-Z, and more Celebrities.

The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards held at the Staples Center on January 31, 2010 in Los Angeles, California.
For the most part the guys looked good, everyone kept with their usual look or style. I just hate that once again the show proved that receiving a Grammy doesn’t mean what it used to, the people who deserve it never seem to win (ie. Black Eyed Peas should have won Album of the Year).
Check out our collection of celebrities at the 2010 Grammy Awards, on the red carpet, at the show, and after:
Trey Songz
keep reading to see LOTs more pictures and The Best Dressed

One of Chi-town’s finest, singer Common
Common, fresh as usual
 
The Jonas Brothers, always seem to be the most elegantly dressed at award shows
Update: Someone mentioned today that they thought their pants were too long– and yes they are if you want a more classic fit and break. Joe’s pants are decent
Jonas Brothers: Nick wore a Gucci suit with David Yurman jewelry. Joe wore a suit by Dolce and Gabbana, a ring by David Yurman, and watch by IWC. Kevin wore a Lanvin suit with David Yurman jewelry.
Busta Rhymes utilizes a couple of trends in his look:
velvet, velvet bow-ties, and marching band jacket.
Grey’s Anatomy actor, Jesse Williams
Singer Maxwell 
His suits always have the best fit

Comedians Akiva Schaffer and Andy Samberg of The Lonely Island
Linkin Park 
Wacky musical group LMFAO 
 
Musician, Producer David Guetta and wife Cathy Guetta
David is wearing D&G’s signature marching band jacket 
 
 
Musiq Soulchild, though shiny,
he actually looks quote dapper in his purple and gold
John Legend
Somehow the mesh shirt works with his leather tie and steel gray suit.
Kid Cudi
He keeps it simple and clean, but could have tailored the jacket much better. Idk, I think Cudi’s getting too comfortable with the suit and opened button shirt look. I’d like to see him in a perfectly tailored suit and tie.

Kid Cudi sporting the same “secret society” ring as Kanye West and Jay-Z

Ricky Martin wearing Dolce and Gabbana

Actor Simon Barker sporting Oliver Peoples.

Adam Lambert


Travis Barker and his son Landon
I love it, I just wish Trav would have chosen different shoes

T-Pain less blinged than usual– which is a good thing

Akon

Akon showing a little love and support by wearing a  Lady Gaga shirt

Mario Lopez
Sean Paul
Mike “The Situation” and Nicole “Snooki” from Jersey Shore
(I had to post this because that show is hilarious).
Ne-Yo in a black suit, dress shawl, white skinny tie, and his  signature fedora,
  the gray flower on his lapel adds a nice touch, but was unnecessary
 Usher
Usher displays the classic mixture of prints that perfectly compliment his 3-piece cotton suit. He wears Tom Ford up top and finishes the look with distressed wing-tips (as seen below).

A khakish-grey suit and vest, with white piping and black buttons that coordinate with his shirt, tie, and pocket square. The more I think about it, the more I realize that when you dissect alot of Usher’s wardrobe choices over the past few years it’s easy to see that he’s actually one of the best dressed men in Hollywood. He and his stylist really pay attention to the details– from the socks to the pocket square. He truly dresses like a southern gentleman.
Lil Wayne kicks it back stage.
Rapper Eminem performing on stage
Drake
Lil Wayne
Singer Katy Perry and comedian Russell Brand
Rapper Mos Def backstage, displaying the varsity trend
Rihanna and Jay-Z
Jay looks great in classic black and white, with a small flower on his lapel. I love a subtle black on black pinstripe silk suit– flawlessness.
Green Day members Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tre Cool pose backstage with their award for best rock album for 21st Century Breakdown

The guys of the Black Eyed Peas with their usual avant-garde style.
Musicians Will. i.am, Taboo and Apl.de.ap

Trey Songz, Maxwell, Usher, Jay-Z were immaculately styled.
Jonas Brothers- are always the best dressed group/crew.

Urban Gentleman favorite wardrobe pieces:  David Guettas painted boots, Mos Def’s simple baseball varsity jacket, and Usher’s distressed wing-tips.

2010 Golden Globe Awards: Men’s Red Carpet Fashion

67th Annual Golden Globe Awards 
held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel
on January 17, 2010 in Beverly Hills, California.
Taylor Lautner in a hidden button down shirt and bow-tie
Hidden button down dress shirts (hidden plackets) are among my favorite. They always make for a much cleaner, neater, dapper look. I usually see the younger chicer gentlemen wearing these because the style is more modern (generally speaking). Hidden button down shirts not only give a more handsome/modern look, they can also have a slimming effect on most guys. The slimming effect stems from the lack of button tension sometimes seen on regular button downs, but more notably the hidden placket creates a slimming effect because it makes the eyes focus on the dark suit rather than the shirt and suit, creating a seamless, streamlined look. Be sure to add a few hidden button down shirts to your wardrobe.

Avatar’s Sam Worthington in Burberry
(custom tailored black tuxedo, dress shirt and shoes)

Everyone tended to keep it basic and black this year. Usually there are a number of guys who may opt for suits instead of tuxedos, maybe a few in grey/brown/navy suits, some who decide to wear black on black (black dress shirt and suit), and a few who choose to wear their tux with a bright colored tie…  not this year. This year everyone wore a black tuxedo with a black tie, back to the basics I suppose.

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.


Robin Thicke and wife Paula Patton
at Roger Vivier Boutique Opening Party in Miami


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.

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.

A heather grey blazer is a must for men and women
this year, and next, and just in general.

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.

… 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.

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 MTV VMAs: Men of the Red Carpet, Fashion, Style, Best Dressed

This years VMAs were sort of… reckless. Kanye on stage with Taylor Swift, Lil Mama jumping on stage during Jay-Z’s and Alicia Keyes performance, Lady Gaga’s costumes were scary, it was a mess. But I guess that’s what makes it fun to watch- it’s just a random fun award show. And for that same reason celebrities don’t always take their attire seriously. From both the women and men their were more plain, okay, and bad clothing than good. On the women’s side, I think Solange Knowles had the best total look, and from the men… I’ll let you guys decide, who do you think?


Tristan Wilds
The new 90210 sports a very casual ensemble… looks like something a prep school kid wear when they have casual day at school. He has alot of potential though, I could see him dressing like Chris Paul once he matures.


Swiss Beatz
All black, simple, classic, casually clean. Everything fits well- the jeans, the tee, the jacket. His shades are really hot.


Jermaine Jackson and guest
A very nice, top-notch quality marching band jacket. Very appropriate for the tribute to MJ.


Dijmon Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons
cute couple, her baby weight is coming off nicely.


Adam Brody
Superb grooming. He has the whole “I just got off of work from my 6 figure job” look going. You know how it is when some of your banker friends get off work: they have a really nice suit on, tie a tad loosened, and their attire looks very relaxed- since they’ve been mostly at a desk all. That’s the look Adam has going on, I like it.


Akon
This is okay, I saw a close-up of the prints on the suit and it’s not my favorite thing in the world, but it fits his style and taste.


All American Rejects


Adam Samberg


Asher Roth
This is opposite of his usual look, but I think I like it with the mustache.
He looks like a dad from the late 50s.


Chace Crawford
He looks just about perfect, good job Chace.


Cobra Starship


DJ Cassidy
I get what he’s doing, but the look would have been much better with loafers, and if he stood up straight.


Fall Out Boys


Gerald Butler
I wanna say this looks sloppy, buy I think it’s mainly the camera angle. But actually, his pants are too long, jacket sleeves a little long, shirt is too short for his body type, and I wish someone would style his hair and beard better because they always look messy (not in a good way).
The Ugly Truth was really good though.


Justin Bleber
This is a very nice look for our young urban gents.


Kid Cudi


Mando Fresko
The quality of all his clothes are superb- jacket, jeans, and t-shirt


OK GO


Pitbull
Very clean


Russell Brand
(no comment)


Sean Kingston


Sean Paul
I like Sean Paul, but his style is just off… its sort of stuck or something, he hasn’t allowed his style to evolve. Idk, but he needs some help.


Taylor Lautner
Another almost perfect look

My favorites are probably Taylor Lautner and Swiss Beatz…

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

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
