He’s played Robb Stark, Prince Charming, a Medici, a world famous DJ, as well as the Bodyguard. There’s no doubt that Richard Madden is not only one of today’s most prominent leading men, he’s also incredibly versatile. Who knows what role he’ll take on next? While that may be difficult to predict, one thing is certain. As his presence on both the big and small screens rapidly rises, so is his red carpet profile. The leading man is also fast becoming a style star and among the best dressed men on red carpets around the world.
Whether on the big screen, on your tv screen or on the red carpet, British actor Henry Cavill easily captures the attention of audiences around the world. With his tall figure, buff physique and chiseled good looks, it’s not hard to understand why. His onscreen costumes have ranged from opulent 16th century English garb to chic 60s spy agent gear and to, of course, the famed Superman suit.
Once upon a time, picking a suit was fairly straightforward. You had the choice of black, grey or navy, and the cuts were pretty basic. They were never particularly exciting or interesting, they were always safe and you could guarantee that there’d be 50 other men at the event wearing almost identical outfits. Now, however, men’s fashion has taken a huge step forward, and there are plenty of different colours, patterns and fabrics to choose from.
The field jacket design crossed over from the military zones and into the fashion world thanks in large part to designer Yves Saint Laurent. The legendary designer brought the military and safari-inspired style to fame in the sixties. The style was a big success and became a huge trend. It was then further popularized by both stylish Hollywood leading men and big-screen characters, including James Bond.
Fact: Europeans have an amazing sense of style. It’s a globally recognized fact that the Italians, French and English know their style and have, arguably, the most fashionable sense of style of all cultures. In any form of design, whether fashion, cars, furniture or of course, art, there’s a certain flair that’s innate with Europeans, that has been honed and passed down over many centuries. This seems to particularly apply when considering the effortlessly chic French style, the bold and opulent Italian fashion, and the sleek and refined English glamour. It’s almost as if being well-dressed is a genetic trait and that the sense of style is a sixth sense. Of course, many other cultures have their own distinct aesthetic and influential fashions, but there’s a reason why London, Milan and Paris are considered to be the world’s fashion capitals.
