Most Stylish of the Week: Bromance in Cannes


This year's Cannes Film Festival is the gift that keeps on giving. I feel like it gets longer every year but if that means we get to enjoy menswear moments like these they can make it a month long, as far as I'm concerned.
Exactly a week ago Garrett Hedlund and Justin Timberlake hit the red carpet for the 'Inside Llewyn Davis' premiere. The pair seemed to be enjoying each others company. Or perhaps they were just laughing at the rest of us because we'll never be able to look that good... Garrett wore a beautiful combination of midnight blue and black (by Prada?), which I will never tire of saying is the most elegant eveningwear recipe. Timberlake looked his usual sharp self in a classic black suit and skinny bow tie, which he topped off with my favourite Lanvin flower pin. Earlier that day Justin posed at the arrivals photocall in a chic double-chested knit blazer worn with a gingham shirt and beige chinos.
Zachary Quinto made the most perfect choice when he went for his head-to-toe Alexander McQueen look this week. He wore a beautiful satin jacquard rever double breasted tuxedo accessorised with a skull-patterned silk bow tie and black leather monk strap shoes.
Grooming mistake aside, Bradley Cooper's orange suit moment was up there with the sartorial epic-ness of Ryan Gosling or Robert Pattinson. The custom-made suit signed by Gucci – who else? – looked stunning paired with a pale blue shirt and tan leather Oxford shoes. If only you had done your hair, Bradley...


Funnily enough, Bill Skarsgård just happened to make an appearance at Cannes the week I started watching 'Hemlock Grove'. The actor looked incredibly cool first in a dark evening outfit that fit him like a glove and later in a more casual take wearing the same blazer over layered t-shirts channeling a bit of Roman Godfrey.
James Franco can get away with things us mortals wouldn't dare of trying – namely these mirrored gangsta shades and the just-out-of-bed hairstyle. The actor looked super cool pairing these with a blue Gucci look perfect for spring. I really wish he would undo that second button on his blazer, though...
After realising that perhaps just being George Clooney wasn't enough to look stylish all the time the actor has been making some really great choices as of late. His usual perfect-fitting grey suit look becomes iconic here with his grey moustache and 60's tortoiseshell sunglasses.
