Celebrity Style Makeover

September 9, 2014

We love celebrities and quite possibly the only thing we love more than them is what they wear. Celebrity style has been a phenomenon in the women’s market for decades and is an obvious trend that is transitioning towards men. North American men have finally started taking a vested interest in the way they dress a trend that can be attributed to one single fact, the male celebrities they admire.

With the Toronto Film Festival in full swing, celebrity sightings have become common place. From Bill Murray joyriding about town on his bicycle to Adam Sandler grabbing a bite at the Thompson Dinner, A-list celebrities are everywhere and so are the paparazzi that stalk them.

With candid celebrity street style photos popping up daily we thought it would be interesting to approach the topic of style from the other side. We reached out to some of our in-house style experts to pick a celebrity they love and then an outfit that they’d love to style them in. From Denzel Washington to Chris Evans, here’s what they came up with.

Celebrity Style Makeover

Inspiration: Denzel Washington

Stylist: Sharad Mohan

Sharad: After seeing the amazing GQ editorial with Denzel I felt it time that he stepped up his style game and pushed the boundaries by infusing colour and character into his outfits. This look is perhaps a little ambitious but something I definitely feel he could pull off.

Sand Sherman Double Weave Pindot Blazer: $795 Without Prejudice Victor Floral Dress Shirt: $225 Strellson Mercer Wool Dress Pant: $198 Anderson’s Stretch Woven Belt: $150

Tia: With Bill I wanted to pick an outfit that reflected his eccentric personality while still staying classy. Key features of this outfit are clearly the bold multi-coloured woven belt and our gorgeous pindot jacket.

Stylist: Neale Conway


Hilton Wool Mohair Notch Lapel Suit: $995 Gotstyle Private Label Oxford Dress Shirt: $165 Doro Lapel Pin: $19 Strellson Leather Belt: $128 Ted Baker Tie: $95

Neale: Blue is the new black and lets face it who doesn’t look good in a well-tailored suit. Sexy man, in a sexy suit- its not rocket science. Chris Evans has mastered that all-american look, polished and refined but never boring.

Celebrity Style Makeover

Inspiration: Robert Downey Jr.

Stylist: Bee Almariego


Sand Sherman Herringbone Wool Blazer: 795 J. Lindebergh Ward Button Down Oxford Shirt: $139 Horst Pindot Sweater: $115 A. Christensen Silk Pocket Square: $45 Zanerobe Track Sureshot with Leather Panel: $299

Bee: Robert Downey Jr. is a definite risk taker which is why for his looks I stepped it up a notch mixing a little streestyle with sartorial finesse. If there is one celebrity that can rock no-sock, zanerobe, sportcoat combo, it would be him.
