A Grunge Revival? Alan Cumming Seems To Think So!

By Will Reid on September 15th, 2008

rex_801664b.jpgRex Features describes the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys as an event to “recognise technical and other achievements for the 2007-08 TV season…widely considered to be a precursor to the main Emmys ceremony.”

In my world of tired soaps like Eastenders and Coronation St, this translates as an excuse for C-list stars to dress up in posh frocks a la the recent TV Soap Awards (or something along those lines) that occurred in Britain where everyone thought that Ashley Slanina-Davies from Hollyoaks was a style star because she actually had a YSL clutch (and, I admit it, she did look wonderfully 80s.)

Anyway, Alan Cumming decided to bring a different flavour to the LA-based awards and opted for grunge-hair and darker shades instead of the usual skinny-fit suit, Converse trainer and grey/black palette that we see from most of LA’s men.

Brandish Poll: JT in Frock Horror Scandal?

By Will Reid on September 9th, 2008

Being the face of a Givenchy fragrance pretty much cements you as a style star (not that I would know but one must work on assumption when speaking of Britney-dating, ex-N*Sync stars!) Well, I was bitterly disappointed in Justin Timberlake’s outfit at the Fashion Rocks concert last week. JT wore a grey blazer from his new ‘William Rast’ range and a pair of hideous turn-up jeans with an odd silk tie- seemingly cut in half.

Is it just me who’s shocked by this lack of style sense? Vote in our poll below!

Brandish Gallery: Heath Ledger

By Will Reid on July 30th, 2008

Last night I went to see ‘Batman: The Dark Knight’ at a small, local film-house. The queues trailed out of the door and down the street- surely a first for such a small-scale cinema. Bearing in mind that this place sits in the middle of a village that doesn’t exactly boast of a youthful population, I knew there must be some reason they were flocking to watch a super-hero film. That reason is Heath Ledger. Entrancing, dark, clever, mesmerizing; he is all these things and more. The film is like a non-stop showcase of Ledger’s immense talent and after giving you the low-down on the premiere, I now give you a few of Ledger’s best looks.

Celeb Style: Emile Hirsch’s Casual Cool

By Will Reid on May 1st, 2008

Emile Hirsch seems to have perfected the laid-back but oh-so-stylish celebrity look. Whether on his Another Man cover or at an early morning press conference, Hirsch is usually seen open-collared with a smile and noticeable lack of “gay guy” fake-tan.

At the European Premiere of Speed Racer, Hirsch turned up in a brilliant pin-stripe suit (possibly navy inspired?) and a relaxed shirt. There was no fussy detail or shiny shoes but instead, Hirsch went without jewellery and wore his hair as if he was attending a Sunday Starbucks. I guess it’s a shame then that the whole look was rained upon- literally.

Brits 2008 Fashion: Arctic Monkeys

By Will Reid on February 25th, 2008

Image5This year’s Brit Awards saw a pretty varied spectrum of red carpet-dressing. The men either went for smart-casual monochrome (Take That) with accessories such as elaborate ties and glittery belts or glorious brights (look out for my other post on Mark Ronson and Mika.) But one group of well-dressed individuals stood out.

The Arctic Monkeys proved to be the attention-grabbing act of the night, whether it included their drunken thank-you speech (or slur,) winning the Best Group of the Year or their spectacular look. The band went for country costumes with full-on tweed and breeches. Admittedly you couldn’t wear it all the time but you have to admit that they do look rather enviously carefree and offensively upper class to the point of clay-pigeon cool.  This year’s Brits were a fabulous reminder of why  the world loves the UK. Some may have found the awards to be an alcohol-fuelled waste of time but at least we saw some genuine smiles and bright-eyes (more standard surprise than surgeon’s snip.) Deep breath- and onto the Oscars.
