Joe Jonas and his girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler attended the 2014 InStyle and Warner Bros. 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards Post-Party on January 12, 2014 in Beverly Hills, California. Joe Jonas wore a 'Tokyo' embroidered cotton evening jacket from DSquared Spring Summer 2014, over a black shirt, black silk tie, matching black trousers and shoes.

To be perfectly and brutally honest: this is one of my favourite blazers / jackets from Spring Summer 2014, if not the favourite. DSquared collections are usually younger, louder, more brazen, more Cristiano Ronaldo. Nothing wrong with that, just that I am not in the market for that. I was so surprised when I saw this blazer on the runway. I love that wicker embroidery (thought it was print initially...), in that muted shade of resplendent gold, and the black contrasting peaked lapels beautifully shaped. It will work beautifully as formal wear, but equally stunning over denims. Love it so much that I will buy it impulsively on one of my bad days to make myself feel better.

And to be perfectly and brutally honest: I am disappointed to see it on Joe Jonas. I am only human not devoid of feelings and emotions, I get attached to non-living items like this. The styling was (almost) perfect on the runway and I am hoping for a much grander red carpet appearance, perhaps Matthew McConaughey or Jared Leto to wear it.  It is a terrible thing for me to say/write, and I would hate it for someone to say that about me, especially since hands on my heart, this really is one of my favourites this season. I say the runway styling is almost perfect: that white triangle bit revealing the white shirt, after the blazer button to the top of the trousers, should not be seen. With formal wear, hide it with a cummerbund or structure the blazer nicely so that triangle of sin would not be shown. Joe Jonas did well there.

It is a bitter sweet feeling. Seeing one of my favourite runway pieces on the red carpet, but Joe Jonas really did not wow me.

You can shop the DSquared 'Tokyo' embroidered jacket and matching trousers (I wouldn't wear them together though...) online from Luisa Via Roma. See, no 'triangle of sin' above. Click on the items for more information and to shop online.
