Best & worst dressed men of the month
THE BAD: Perez Hilton's faux (I hope) snakeskin T-shirt is quite one thing, but his cubic pleather pants?! 'How many mother truckers you done seen with sheeny square-patterned pants?'. None. None Perez. And there's a reason for that. PS: Phones and wallets in pant pockets are an issue at the best of times, but with these shiny horrors it looks medical, like some kind of pleather-bound catheter.

THE BAD: Well B.O.B, aka Bobby Ray Simmons Jr, certainly doesn't lack confidence. His outfit is like some kind of high level mathematical equation. Maybe this is how illuminati kids do their geometry exams - watch celebs on the red carpet and then have to solve the riddle. Is the elephant involved somehow?

THE BAD: We'll get to Angie's bin liner tomorrow, but Brad, oh Brad? When did the world's hottest man become a middle-aged mafioso from the Seventies? Sure, he's 50, but that doesn't excuse the very formal pants with those shoes, the pimp glasses and the hair. His hair is like something a lesser-known Baldwin brother would sport. PS: The suit may look like a hand-me-down, but it's actually Gucci.

THE BAD: You know how women shouldn't wear full see-through mesh on the red carpet? Well that goes for men too Corey Feldman. The addition of the hat later in the night was the real cherry on the worst dressed top.

THE BAD: I think Jared Leto is edgy enough to pull off one of these items. He could go skirt with a classic shirt (and still look unusual but not crazy), but then why wear pants as well? He could pull off this patterned shirt with some simple jeans, yes, but throw in the aqua blazer and we move into eyesore territory. PS: The blazer is Ferragamo, the shirt Etro and the pants are Skingraft.

THE BAD: 'Night fever, night fever, we know how to do it!' This is the song that gets in my head every time I see a picture of Simon Cowell in his bootlegs jeans. Why?! And they flare straight out from the knee. That's commitment to the leg trumpet. Meanwhile, to the left, the media mogul wears his pants pulled up to belly button height, showing off an alluring *not* amount of chest wig (the lady with him is his baby mama Lauren Silverman - who looks a lot like his ex Terri Seymour).

THE BAD: I used to love Terrence Howard in movies, until I read about Terrence Howard the actual human being (it all went downhill from here). Here's another thing I learnt about the frequently-charged-for-the-assault-of-women actor today - he has terrible taste in shirts, and jackets and shoes.

THE GOOD: Frank Ocean looks slick in this white Givenchy tux suit. The skinny-leg trousers keep the whole thing contemporary, and his shoes showcase how to do shine well.

THE GOOD: Arrow star Colton Haynes takes risks on the red carpet, and they almost always pay off. I'm not 100 per cent convinced on the red suit (I'd love it if it was a maroon) but he has to be applauded for bringing some colour to menswear. To the right, he wears a grass-stains-green windowpane-check Etro suit and somehow makes a matching tie, waistcoat and lapel a very good thing. Oh, and those brown boots are great. So go on lads, take Colton as your inspo' and get your RM Williams out next time you don a three-piece suit.

THE GOOD: James McAvoy blends three tones of blue in Prada, while Michael Fassbender is quite the gent in a Thom Sweeney three piece (his maroon shoes are by John Lobb). McAvoy is undoubtedly my favourite of the two as he wins the pant and jacket length race. PS: The lady he's posing with is Anne-Marie Duff, his Shameless TV love and his real-life wife!

THE GOOD: Well hello Josh Hartnett, haven't seen you in a while! The Pearl Harbour (and now Penny Dreadful) actor masters the art of the 'oh-this-old-thing' relaxed suit in Dior Homme. His shirt features an inverted collar, which allows one to have a relaxed, messy, unbuttoned collar without risking the dreaded (and oft-bandied) pointy Dracula look.

THE GOOD: Yes, his beard is a bit unkempt but the colour and subtle sheen of Nick Offerman's suit is resplendent (Ron Swanson would nude up in horror if someone used that word to describe an outfit of his). Offerman also gets points for his jazzy use of a pocket square. PS: When I discovered these two were married in real life I was happy all day. Tammy Two lives!

THE GREAT: Best use of velvet this month goes to Ryan Reynolds, who is a bonafide tall glass of water in navy, custom-made Gucci. I love the maroon bow tie (maroon and navy are a classic suit combo lads. Can't go wrong).

Our new monthly installment takes a look at the highs and lows of guy style.

Turns out celeb men get it wrong, a lot.
