Most Stylish of the Week: Olympic torches, camo & tuxedos

I never thought I would be posting about any Olympic-related fashions but Mark Ronson had to show up yesterday at Hyde Park to prove me wrong. He wore a multicolour tee from Jil Sander's SS11 collection, one of my favourite ever. He paired it with white skinny suit trousers, red socks and white lace-ups. I'm not a fan of white leather shoes but they somehow work. Though, I must say, what makes the whole look work is the sharp haircut. I'm glad Ronson has put his gel quiff days behind him.
Kevin McHale's Glee character is so dorky and unstylish that he always overcompensates on his public appearances. This time he rocked a daring combination that wouldn't have worked on many people. The geometric lines of the black and white colour block shirt contrasted with the sinuous lines of his camo trousers and the modern brogues tied the look together. I am seriously impressed but I still think he needs a good trim more suited to his age.
This week's episode of 'Suits' was such a treat. Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams dressed up in the slickest tuxedos. I very much enjoyed the fact that they were perfectly suited to their characters – a broad-lapelled jacket, muted shirt buttons and conservative bow tie for Harvey and a skinny lapel, black buttons and textured statement bow tie for Mike. This show never disappoints.

And we also had two big grooming hits. The first from Gabriel Mann. After two seasons of dreadful hairstyles on 'Revenge' he's gone for a stylish slightly wavy and more trendy cut that suits him much better. He's also proving he knows how to highlight his guns with perfect-fitting tops.
Brandon Flowers is finally back with The Killers and their new single 'Runaways' is out. For the song's new video he's sporting an edgy new trim – tightly shaved sides and quite longer on top. Once again, a killer look (ha!) that no one else will be able to pull off.
