The British equivalent to the Oscars, the British Fashion Awards (BFA’s) are here! (well technically they were yesterday but you get the point!)
Decked from head to toe in designer dud’s we picked some of the looks we wouldn’t mind trying on for size.
Whether you’re the type of guy who likes his traditional black tie look or you’re more likely to break the rules, there was plenty inspiration at the 2014 BFAs.
Does this man ever look bad? You can never go wrong with a classic black tie (courtesy of Marks and Spencer by the way so get shopping!) and he pulls it off effortlessly
All-black black tie can work. And in this case Beckham shows us how. The trick is to make sure your shades and materials are noticeably different – as he demonstrates here with his silk-lapelled Dior Homme dinner suit.
Surprisingly we’re actually liking this pinstriped suit on Mr Styles. The fit leaves a lot to be desired but we guess that’s his thing so he’ll pass, just this once.
This traditional, looser, longer fitting tuxedo looks good on the model who is also decked out in Marks & Spencer. The deep navy colour is a plus too.
Tom Ford (and a very sucked in Rita Ora)
Mr Ford added a black evening scarf to his ensemble which added some old Hollywood glamour to his look. Always dapper, always so gorgeous. Nice.
This young lad never disappoints! With his penchant for going against the norm (black tie doesn’t necessarily mean you have to wear black), we’re loving his deep plum suit. Add a pair of tasselled Jimmy Choo slip-ons and you’re good to go.
What struck us with this particular outfit was the way Mr Holland wore an overcoat instead of the typical jacket. We could have done without the blue sequinned bands but hey, you can’t have it all!
This last pick was a bit of a wild card. The model and ex-boyfriend to Julian Restoin-Roitfeld, went the bold route in this patterned jacket with matching shirt. With those good looks we’ll give him a pass but this is truly bordering on being gaudy.
