W magazine turns to famed fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh to shoot a portfolio of stars for its February 2016 issue. The magazine’s movie issue, the cover story is led by Eddie Redmayne, who most recently starred in The Danish Girl. Bringing together actors, both young and seasoned, stars included in the story range from Benicio Del Toro and Samuel L. Jackson to Paul Dano. Posing for striking black & white images, the men are styled by Edward Enninful.
Welcome to GQ’s 2016 Best-Dressed List in association with Mercedes-Benz which is published in full with our February issue, available on newsstands and as a digital edition from Thursday 7 January. In our opinion, it is definitely one of the best-of-British ways to welcome in the New Year. Our judges have compiled an eclectic list that ranges from trendsetting teenagers to grand old men and everything in between. This is because being well-dressed is nothing to do with age or fashion. As Keith Richards says, you don’t find a style, a style finds you.
That’s not to say that trends aren’t interesting. In recent years, for example, we have seen the rise and fall of the Pitti peacocks – the self-conscious dandies that lurk around Florence during that city’s biannual menswear fair, who have been replaced with a more relaxed take on sports luxe. And trend-wise right now it seems that we are witnessing the demise of the sock, as ankles remain bare even when the mercury falls.
And remember, even the most polished man won’t get it right every time. Patrick Grant – No5 in our list – was named by the Mail Online as one of the worst-dressed attendees of the British Fashion Awards in November. I felt at the time that his high-waisted dress trousers were too Alfred Hitchcock, but without the guts to experiment, how can we hope to get things right?
The February issue of British GQ including our Best Dressed supplement is available 7 January on newsstands and as a digital edition which you can download on your iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire or Android device. [Source]
This was published 2 days ago. I can’t wait to watch the trailer and movie, and you?
the “announcement trailer” for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released online on December 15th, which leads me to believe the trailer might also be attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film is, of course, Warner Bros.’ spinoff of sorts to the Harry Potter franchise as it tells another story set within the wizarding world. This time working off a screenplay by author J.K. Rowling herself, Fantastic Beasts takes place in 1926 New York City, where magizoologist Newt Scamander (played by Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne) finds himself running up against magicians in hiding and a government on its toes after part of his collection of some of the world’s most spectacular magical creatures escapes on the streets of New York.
Eddie Redmayne will go head to head with 10-times nominee Leonardo DiCaprio at the Golden Globes, just a year after his win for The Theory Of Everything.
The British star is nominated for best actor in a drama for his performance as transgender artist Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl, while DiCaprio received his 11th nod for his gruelling turn as Hugh Glass in revenge saga The Revenant.
The pair, who were also both nominated for Screen Actors Guild Awards on Wednesday, are widely regarded as the favourites in the category and appear poised to secure Oscar nominations when they are announced next year. [Source]
