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.

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)

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.


A Few SAG Award Photos

15th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) in Los Angeles January 25, 2009

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
I like how Brad matches with Angie in a subtle way.

Julius Tennon and Viola Davis.
A few guys have been asking me about advice for prom and this is a good example of how to match. The girl is wearing a radiant color like yellow and you can match by choosing a neutral complimenting tie color in the same material- in this case silver.

30 Rock Cast

The cast of “Slumdog Millionaire” with director Danny Boyle.
They just keep winning all the awards.

Worst Dressed:
I usually don’t do “worst-dressed”,
but the tackiness of these two guys
is sort of uncalled for…

Mickey Rourke.
I’m totally speechless.

Laurence Fishburne
I love Laurence- I swear I do, but why.. why oh why
must you look like a baptist preacher at the Golden Globe Awards
I like it when guys go a little bit out the box for black tie events, but
this is just wrong.

Best Dressed of the Night:

Tom Cruise.
From the perfectly cut hair to the spread collar.
Tom looks extremely handsome in his Armani tuxedo.
Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Diddy always brings it pretty hard and last night he brought it.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
I like it when men wear suits that subtly match their personality.
I feel like this 3 piece suit fits his mysterious demeanor.
I may not recommend this for everyone, but it looks good on him.

2008 American Music Awards Red Carpet

The 2008 American Music Awards tonight in LA,
check out the red carpet…
Kanye West
He’s rocking a Pastelle baseball jacket.
Is this what we should expect from your line Kanweeezy?
Army fatigue hat, raccoon or squirrel or some type of furry animal’s
tail hanging out his pocket black denim jeans and grey
Common Project shoes … idk… this is very random,
but it’s cool cuz its Kanye.

Chris Brown
Stunner shades on deck.
Got the pretty boi look going on from the side.

It’s just a little little bit too much look for me
I mean, I do love the overall look, but something
isn’t doing it for me and it’s only b/c I expect the best out
of you C.Breezy. I dig the jacket, shoes (AMQ Pumas), and tatts tho.

Jonas Brothers, Nick, Joe and Kevin
These guys are always so polished.

I like Nick’s look the most mainly b/c of the tie
I’m a sucker for fat knots, lol. And it’s a 3 piece
tweed- it’s just a very handsome looking suit.

Jamie Foxx
He looks lost right here, huh? lol.

I’m sorry, but the boots go hard. They just do.
I’m SUCH a fan of this look, I just am. Only guys
with certain personalities can pull this off tho.
And having a goatee helps, idk, it just does
(or some type of facial hair)

Neyo
Beautiful jacket, look at the sheen.
Ne-Yo has some of the best suits hands down,
They are all such great quality.
I’m going to have to ask him who makes them one day.

I know I just complimented him, but….
OMG, I don’t know what it is, but
I just don’t like to see Ne-Yo on the red carpet.
And it’s 100% because of those frickin’ HATS!
aaaaaaahhhhh! They really upset me and they
distract me from his look. I’m so so so over
these hats… and it’s not even the hats as much as the
way he wears them- tilted to the side.
It just says “look I’m trying really hard to be cool,
please like me”, idk. I just wish he wouldn’t wear them
or when he did I wish he would wear them like a normal person
Okay well, that is all.

Steven Tyler

He’s a rocker and let’s just be honest
they can dress however they want and
we’ll love them for it.
He has on some raccoon as well,
maybe he and Kanye planned this?

Terrence Howard
Always dapper. I like the subtle black
pinstripes and the white pocket square.

Akon
Classic clean, the skinny tie is the new basic tie.
If you don’t have one, please buy one.

Corbin Bleu
Wow, Corbin has gotten swoll on us.
He and Zac have been hitting the gym pretty heavy huh
Well, thats sexy as a hell… okay, now to the clothes.
Very regular, he could have certainly done better.
This does nothing for him, he’s need a new stylist
to help him dress the new body.

rock band The Fray
Very cohesive group look I think- for a rock band,
My eyes go directly to the shoes and I see Converse,
the same Common Project shoes Kanye is rocking, and black boots.
( I think Guess by Marciano boots or Kenneth Cole)

Chris Daughtry and his Band Daughtry
Umm, yeah, no comment.

3 Six Mafia
One word: Late.
This is what happens when you have no style
You end up flaunting trends from Christmas past as
if they’re hot. (no offense guys)


SUMMARY of the LOOKS

Color: mostly neutral tones- grays and blacks
Shoes: boots (that go over your pants) and grey lace-ups
Standout Look of the Night: Kanyeezy
Best Dressed:idk….
between Chris brown, Nick Jonas, and J.Foxx (b/c of the boots)
