When it comes to fashion, why should women enjoy all the attention ? With so many links and posts highlighting the beautiful gowns from the festivals, we don’t want our lovely tuxedos to feel out of place. So, now that Cannes Film Festival has finally wrapped up, we have to share with you the finest, excellent, foremost, and optimum (we are running out of synonyms :p) men’s styles that stole focus from the flattering, embellished and tailored gowns.
We have compiled a list of seven looks from Cannes that were both a mix of classic and modern reinterpretations. Hope you enjoy and customize the looks, as per your preference because being a bit stylish never harmed anybody.
We all know, the fashion goodness and ballyhoo of any festival start right from the moment the actors step out of the airport. Clive Oven’s blue suit worn with a lightweight scarf and sneakers passed with flying colors in “fashion at the airport”. His casual yet put together look made a satisfactory case that maybe airport should be treated as a public space, where you should, maybe dress up.
If we are talking about men’s fashion, how can we even begin to discuss without Ryan Gosling’s name not popping up? Gosling while promoting his film ‘The Nice Guys’, was seen wearing an ivory dinner jacket, something similar to what we saw in the Met Gala. He paired his jacket with dark pants and crisp white shirt with a bow tie. This Gucci look sure did convince us to rethink the way we dress formals.
White for summer is like red for love, whether you talk about it or not but it is unofficially there. Matt Bomer who has been on the top of style front this season wore a full head to toe white look- white jeans, white shoes, and white shirt. The look was neatly and stylishly paired with a navy jacket. The look was casual, easy and season appropriate.
Although Edgar, the familiar face from The Bourne Ultimatum, looked terrific, barefoot and undone in the three piece suit but the favorite look of the festival has to be the khaki suit. The suit was excellently paired with a blue patterned shirt and a pocket square. The neat and casual look aptly justified the look of a movie star in a film festival.
Not a very familiar face, the 27-year-old Canadian director who is also the current face of Louis Vuitton menswear took home the Grand Prix for his film It’s Only the End of the World. Apart from his movie, there were two things that he masterfully pulled off- the bold, patterned suit and the delicate T-shirt-and-tailoring mix. And by the very photo itself, you can tell he is the envy of many women, with that great head of hair. :p
The 17-year-old model made the rounds at Cannes and of course, he looked stylish. The men who get creative with the formal wear in festival usually fall pretty flat or stick to the straightforward plan guidelines. Smith, however, took the formal dressing a notch higher with the midnight blue tuxedo paired with a black shirt instead of standard or traditional white, giving the look a completely new spin. Reinterpretation of classic smartly adorned by the teenager, indeed.
The grey suit, worn with the white shirt and white sneakers compliments this effortless look. To top it all off we have that moustache that would save you in all occasions :p
Suits paired with a shirt or t-shirt with formal shoes or sneakers did not disappoint us and probably didn’t disappoint you. If inspired, go ahead, experiment and try on the designs for your next formal or casual outing with friends or family.
