A$AP Rocky

Where: amfAR Gala 2017, Cannes

Despite no new song, album or even a tie, A$AP Rocky commanded every camera at Cannes’ hottest ticket: the amfAR Gala. And for that, we have to thank a classic monochrome two-piece that lets a faultless fit speak far louder than a 100,000 spend on Goyard – no tie required.

Barry Jenkins

Where: Jury Cinéfondation Photocall, Cannes

Barry Jenkins: not the name of your local window cleaner, but the man behind Moonlight and some mighty fine menswear looks. At the Jury Cinéfondation photocall, the 37-year-old tempered potentially risky florals with quieter tailoring and some classic Oxfords for a squeaky clean finish.

Chris Pine

Where: New York City

Neutrals needn’t read boring, or so says Chris Pine. While working the rope line in New York City, the Wonder Woman star went Mayfair on Manhattan with a lightweight two-piece and all the tailoring trends du jour: peak lapels, double-breasted blazer and a tonal shirt sans tie.

Hasan Minhaj

Where: Comedy Central Press Day, Los Angeles

After hosting (and roasting) the White House Correspondents Dinner and a slot on The Daily Show, 2017 is set to be Hasan Minhaj’s year. So it makes sense to build an equally stellar wardrobe. While several staples in tandem could be perceived as playing it safe, the comedian lifted the look with an emerald green bomber for some much-needed colour and texture. His look is as bright as his future.

Orlando Bloom

Where: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, New York City

He’s always worn his heart on his sleeve (and a lot less on paddleboards), and Orlando Bloom’s appearance on The Tonight Show was no different. Proving that prints are far from dead with a statement shirt, the newly single actor dialled down the look elsewhere with safe, all-black pieces.

David Beckham

Where: amfAR Gala 2017, Cannes

His and hers motor leathers aside, David Beckham can do no wrong – especially when it concerns black tie. At the amfAR Gala in Cannes, Golden Balls opted for a foolproof tux complete with all the right accessories. And, thankfully, a classic slickback that ages far better than, say, cornrows.

Will Smith

Where: amfAR Gala 2017, Cannes

From Fresh Prince Of Bel Air to King of Hollywood, Will Smith’s longevity has been marked by a slew of standout looks. Case in point, this classic tux at the amfAR Gala in Cannes. White has long been a standout alternative to ubiquitous black-tie, yet still toes the dress code for even the most regal of invitations.

Donald Glover

Where: Gucci Resort 2018 Show, Florence

While a pink velvet overcoat makes for fine post-show photography, Donald Glover provided a more wearable take on Gucci’s signature quirk. The rapper-turned-actor flexed a floral Cuban collared shirt – two trends in one – yet anchored the look with failsafe black shorts and minimal sneaks below. Leave the theatrics to Jared Leto.
