One Direction "You & I" - Clevedon Pier

Three weeks ago I blogged about Harry Styles (in his Alexander McQueen scarves) and the boys from One Direction filming a music video at Clevedon Pier in North Somerset in England. The video is out today, and it is for the rather melancholic "You & I".

The Grade I listed piece of architecture was described by poet Sir John Betjeman as the ‘most beautiful pier in England’. Beautiful song, and I must visit the pier someday. A roadtrip soon I reckon.

Anton Yelchin attended the "For the Love of Cinema" dinner hosted by IWC Schaffhausen and Tribeca Film Festival at Urban Zen on 17 April 2014 in New York City. The American film and television actor wore a contrast panel suit from Dior Homme by Kris Van Assche Spring Summer 2014, over a buttoned up white shirt and black lace-up shoes.

I love the simplicity of the buttoned up white shirt against the rather complex contrast trim details on the suit. Still deciding if I would like to add a white pocket square, but I feel that Anton should have taken one size down on the blazer. Do you like Anton Yelchin's look at the event?

The unstoppable force of the Dior Homme contrast trim blazer / suit. Clockwise from top: Feng Shaofeng [冯绍峰] , Romain Dauriac, Jeremy Renner, Anton Yelchin, Will.i.am, Kendric Lamar. I am sure there are a few more which I have missed. Who styled it best?

Carmelo Anthony attended the "For the Love of Cinema" dinner hosted by IWC Schaffhausen and Tribeca Film Festival at Urban Zen on 17 April 2014 in New York City. The American professional basketball player, or husband to LaLa Anthony if you watch 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', wore a plum coloured suit over a Prada knitwear from Spring Summer 2014. He accessorised with two tone brown lace-ups, and presumably an IWC Schaffhausen timepiece.

A very good look from Carmelo Anthony. I have always been a fan of layering a suit over a roll neck jumper. While that is not an entirely roll neck jumper, the high neckline makes a nice contrast against the lapels. I do not think the suit jacket was too short, I think he rolled it up on purpose to showcase the timepiece, seeing it is an IWC Schaffhausen sponsored event. 

Love the sunrise / sunset design on the knitwear, great colour scheme overall.

Trudie Styler and Sting attended the after party for the 25th Anniversary concert for the Rainforest Fund at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on 17 April 2014 in New York City. Sting wore a floral print suit from Gucci Spring Summer 2014, over a blue shirt and brown lace-up shoes.

Sting in Gucci - 25th Anniversary Concert For The Rainforest Fund

I love floral prints against the pale lilac background. It is a bold choice to wear the full on floral suit, I would be tempted to wear the blazer with a pair of dark blue trousers instead. We previously featured Chinese artiste Wang Dong Cheng [汪东城] (above left) in the double breasted suit, and Hong Kong artiste Anthony Wong Yiu-Ming [黃耀明] in the same suit with a bold head piece. Who wore it better? I pick Wang Dong Cheng, the ring on his index finger kind of pipped it.

"If I hadn't seen Sting, I would definitely have said Wang Dong Cheng wore this suit the best, but Sting just rocks it SO well! I get so bored of men in plain black suits on the red carpet, and here Sting proves that something a bit different goes a long way. He looks brilliant. And he hasn't just styled it the same as on the catwalk. Bravo Sting, Bravo!" ~ Simon Glazin from The Very Simon G
