Who? Olivia Palermo
Where? New York
For a second issue in a row, Olivia Palermo makes it onto The Review’s best dressed list. If the base of personal style be a blank canvas upon which to display creativity, then we have this generation’s very own Picasso Palermo on our hands. Palermo combines a vast array of diverse pieces including this MGSM jacquard peplum top and matching cropped trousers in citrus, a leopard-print belt, a Diane Von Furstenberg monochrome blazer, a dark cherry oversized handbag and turquoise stilettos in a way that, on paper, would spell out the word “Disaster.” Her God-given talent in all things vogue, however, not only makes this look work, but it quite simply works fantastically. Hello city chic.
Who? Thandie Newton
Where? Cartier Queen’s Cup, Windsor
For an insight into the epitome of class, look no further than Thandie Newton’s spring-kissed look from the Cartier Queen’s Cup. Showcasing a sheer, white polka-dot Temperley dress with a matching Fall 2013/14 overcoat and Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ heels accented with majestic metallic gold, Newton’s look is both rich and royal. Her choice of gold-studded barrel clutch lends the look a certain youthful essence, steering the outfit away from appearing demure. Newton’s embracing of this season’s soft nude trends works wonders with her skin tone, making this an example of picture-perfect summertime style.
Who? Thom Evans
Where? London Collections Men
It really is no wonder that Thom Evans has been shortlisted within GQ’s ‘Most Stylish Men of LC: M’, especially when outfits like this surface. Flaunting a Bespoke HQ double-breasted Prince of Wales check suit with a shawl lapel, Evans’ casual demeanor would have us believe he simply rolled out of bed this way. And, let’s be honest, he probably did. Adding to Evans’ effortlessly-dapper aura is his eye for fine detail and a willingness to experiment with colour and fabrics – demonstrated through his Bespoke HQ brook shoes in Air Force Blue, purple Prince of Wales check shirt, and a light blue Aston Martin Grosvenor tie. The perfect look for the perfect gentleman.
Who? Justin Timberlake
Where? Cannes Film Festival
Whoever said you had to wear a tuxedo to make a statement at Cannes Film Festival had clearly never come across Justin Timberlake. Coolly sporting a Tom ford double-breast cardigan over a blue checkered shirt and coupled with a casual pair of khakis, Timberlake confidently expresses that you quite simply do not need a power suit in order to look powerful. Oozing charm through this mature fashion choice and adding new heights to traditional granddad cardigans, Timberlake’s marine mélange makes him very much the captain of Cannes.
Who? David Gandy
Where? London Collections Men
When it comes to outstanding men’s fashion, it would seem unnatural not to include David Gandy amongst our best dressed. Just when you thought that it was impossible to look good one hundred percent of the time, Gandy casually proves you wrong. Embracing this season’s bomber jacket trend in this Dolce and Gabbana piece, the British model adds classic charm in the form of a Ralph Lauren waistcoat and a love for Spencer Hart tailoring in his shirt, trousers and tie. In true Gandy fashion, no outfit is complete without a great pair of shoes; these oh-so-shiny Paul Smiths add an executive edge to an otherwise light-hearted daytime look, polished off with world-famous chiseled Gandy cheekbones. A five star ensemble.
