Red Carpet Report: BAFTAs & GRAMMYs 2015


The 2015 awards season is now well under way, culminating in the Oscars later this month. Last night, focus was split on award ceremonies on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean as London held the BAFTAs and Los Angeles hosted the Grammys.

The BAFTAs, the British equivalent of the Oscars, saw Eddie Redmayne lift the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, He is tipped to repeat his success at the Oscars too.

Britain dominated the Grammys too with Sam Smith picking up 4 awards including song & record of the year for Stay With Me. Not a bad achievement considering it was only 9 months since the release of his debut album In The Lonely Hour.

All back-patting and hand-shaking aside, let's move on to the important matters of what the best dressed men wore!

This is a black-tie affair but there is always a bit of variety that sets the stylish chaps apart from the standard rented tuxes.

My favourite look of the night, Douglas Booth in Dunhill. This sage green grey velvet jacket is a fresh alternative to the usual black or navy.

Mark Ruffalo in Lanvin. Nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Foxcatcher, Ruffalo pulls off varying shades of navy perfectly.

Leading man Eddie Redmayne's velvet Armani ensemble is close enough to classic without being cliched.

The biggest award ceremony in the music industry, the Grammys court controversy on an annual basis with some sort of political statement or publicity stunt usually happening during the course of the night.

Quadruple winner Sam Smith's usual uniform of a fully buttoned shirt and sharp suit gets the finishing touch of a white bow tie in a nod to classic black tie.

Beck picked up the award for Album of the Year. I love his retro rock n roll look with classic wayfarers, black velvet jacket and vintage paisley print shirt.

I'm looking forward to seeing what sartorial style the Oscars bring - look out for another round up post coming soon!
