Who: Ariyon Bakare

Where: Life Photocall, London

If there’s one place you can get away with not playing it safe, it’s at your very own premiere. Rising thespian Ariyon Bakare contrasted a sky-coloured suit with a dressed-down polo at a photocall for sci-fi thriller Life, breaking the myth that black and blue don’t glue. If that wasn’t striking enough, the actor also added some on-topic texture with space-grey suede Chelsea boots.

Who: Dan Stevens

Where: Christopher Kane x Beauty And The Beast Launch, London

It seems Dan Stevens really has earned his stripes. At the launch of designer Christopher Kane’s Beauty And The Beast collaboration with Disney, the Downton Abbey graduate swapped morning suits for monochrome, with a simple double-striped knit breaking everything up. It’s a look that’s perfect if you’re more London Fashion Week Men’s than Lord Of The Manor.

Who: Ryan Reynolds

Where: Ed Sullivan Theatre, NYC

When your wife is Blake Lively, there’s no margin for error – even when you’re Deadpool. Lucky, then, that Ryan Reynolds spruced up a treat for his appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Opting for several shades of blue, the texture in the denim jacket gives added depth, while multiple layers steer the look clear of boring. Safe to say nobody’s punching in this marriage.

Luke Pasqualino

Where: Three Empire Awards, London

From Bristolian teenage tearaway to Afghan vet, Luke Pasqualino is quite the acting chameleon. Few looks, however, can rival his latest disguise. This part-Addams Family, part-Hollywood getup seen at the Empire Awards in London omits a tie entirely – known as the ‘air tie’ to insiders – for a memorable look that still toes the dress code. Maybe add style icon that CV, too.

Who: Tom Hiddleston

Where: Kong: Skull Island Press Conference, Beijing

Fresh from goading Godzilla, Tom Hiddleston ditched the ‘Nam threads for something a touch more Mayfair at a press conference for Kong: Skull Island. The checked print elongates his frame, with a choice shirt and tie chiming with the overall palette. No monkeying around here (sorry).

Who: Jessie Metcalfe

Where: Los Angeles

Sure, Jessie Metcalfe’s career may have quietened since Desperate Housewives, but this look makes enough noise to compensate. The Cuban collar shirt – a trend tipped for further glory this summer – packs a subtle statement thanks to a wearable yet bold microprint. Pair that with staple jeans and boots and the image of a wife-ravishing, suburban gardener is but a distant memory.

Reggie Yates

Where: Three Empire Awards, London

For a man that cut his teeth on kids’ TV, Reggie Yates’ wardrobe is all grown-up. The black two-piece racks up the ratings thanks to a Reggie-made fit, while a crew neck knit dresses down the look with ease. Add a pair of Gucci loafers and what you’re left with is a look that’s more city slicker than Kids’ Choice Awards.

Patrick Dempsey

Where: Los Angeles

Most actors’ wardrobe nous takes a nosedive when the stylists take the day off – but most actors aren’t Patrick Dempsey. Bridget Jones’ rumoured baby daddy combined three wardrobe staples while out in LA for a look that’s as foolproof as it is solid; colours are wearable yet impactful, while slim fits cut a flattering shape. Take note, Johnny Depp.

Scott Disick

Where: Sugar Factory American Brasserie, Las Vegas

If you ever hit Vegas, make like Scott Disick and leave the gimmicks in Caesar’s Palace. At the opening of a brasserie (no doubt before hitting the strip), the Kardashian exile struck it lucky in a simple black hoody anchored with stonewash jeans. Clean white kicks feed into the overall minimalism, resulting in a look that’s better suited to the bar than a blackjack table. We’ll go all-in on that.

Wilmer Valderrama

Where: Tao, Los Angeles

Wilmer Valderrama’s come a long way since That ‘70s Show. Instead of bell-bottom jeans, the actor opted a loose yet flattering monochrome two-piece at the opening of LA nightlife hotspot Tao. Better yet, a simple blue dress shirt replaces a ruffled-fronted (and highly flammable) counterpart. Peace, man.
