Most Stylish of the Week: 50 shades of grey (almost)

It has been a great week for style thanks to the MTV VMA's, Fashion's Night Out, the Venice Biennale and New York Fashion Week. And if you add the world premiere of 'Anna Karenina' featuring Jude Law and Aaron Johnson, you get a killer combination.
Mostly every most stylish guy has gone for grey this season, which is always a great choice for the beginning of autumn and, while classic, it's much less boring than black.
Ryan Lochte, who is rumoured to be launching his own clothing line, proved he can suit up just as well in the dry. His dark grey suit and the soft touch of the knit polka dot tie and the nice glimmer of the brown shoes were perfect for his NYFW debut. I hope he keeps it up.
After consecutive bad choices in the style and grooming (and personal hygiene) department, Shia LaBeouf finally trimmed his beard and slipped on a pair of slim cuffed suit trousers. It seems that's all he needed to look fly in Venice.
Dave Franco is a lot less talked-about than his brother James but has a much cooler style. This week he gave a lesson in how to wear tailoring in a light grey suit cut to perfection paired with a classic white shirt and a midnight blue bowtie of perfect proportions.
Jude Law knows he doesn't have to try very hard to be the best dressed. For his London premiere of 'Anna Karenina' he combined 3 different shades of grey that made up a 3-piece suit for pros. Like Lochte, he knows that the best touch to a grey look is always a nice tan leather shoe.

I mostly unashamedly admit how big a fan I am of One Direction. There is something about their music that always puts me in a good mood. And it's always great to see them live because they're pretty much the best dressed boy band in history. On Friday night they picked up three awards at the MTV VMA's and gave another lesson in style, which is to say a lot when you consider they have barely made it to their 20's. My personal favourite is Louis Tomlinson, who wins this week's best grooming for his sleek, badass and effortless hairdo and subtle stubble.
