Here’s to RA’s talented stylist: praise for Ilaria Urbinati from one of her clients

Standard

From InStyle.com, Vampire Diaries actress Nina Debrov on her collaboration with stylist Ilaria Urbinati:

 “If something doesn’t work, even if it’s a big designer look, she’s not going to make me wear it just because. It’s whatever I feel best in and what is event-appropriate. That’s why I love her so much.”

I have to believe this is Ilaria’s philosophy with all her clients: wearing what they feel best wearing and what is event-appropriate. And I would say that proved very successful for RA, who was definitely “wearing the clothes instead of the clothes wearing him” during TH press junket and various red carpet appearances.  On each occasion, he looked comfortable, confident, relaxed and oh, so handsome.

There was attire more cutting-edge for Tokyo, for example–that shiny blue waxed wool suit–and a classic tux that harkened back to film stars of old for the London royal premiere.

The black hoodie and leather for NYC–youthful and a little edgy. We adored those English schoolboy  vest-and-tie looks for press conferences– and who among us can forget the  retro look of the cardigan in Canada? Traditional and sexy and cuddly all at the same time.  Thank  you, Ilaria. We love you, too!

Who knew a cardi could be so darned sexy on a guy? Apparently Ilaria did. Thank you, sweetie!

Oh, how we love him in black leather, don’t we, ladies? And those black kicks are just great. The combo of the leather with that lovely, cuddly-looking shawl collar sweater is irresistible for me.

Loved this look, too.  The plaid and sweater vest beneath the blazer-traditional but NOT stuffy, casual yet classic. He looks comfortable and confident and indeed, every inch the winner that he is.

In his black leather jacket, hoodie and jeans, he looked young, vigorous and delicious. Another winning combination!

Ah, the cardi again under a dark grey blazer. Love this color combination on him. Blues and greys work so well with his complexion.  Again, Ilaria, thank you so much for helping our man look and feel his very best. Kudos!

The clothes make the man even *more* magnificent. Thanks, Ilaria.

New York premiere

I’m tired. Didn’t sleep last night and haven’t napped any today. So I’m going to keep it simple and share just a few photos of Mr. A looking dashing, dazzling and delicious in his duds as styled by lovely and talented Ilaria Urbinati. Richard Armitage appeared relaxed, comfortable, stylish and confident throughout the grueling press junket and red carpet appearances.

By the way, I understand that Ilaria dressed no less than 21 celebs during  this week’s awards ceremonies madness, including Academy Award Best Actor nominee Bradley Cooper and the lovely Nina Debrov of Vampire Diaries.

RA always dazzles on red carpet *sigh* Fanart, vids, fashion advice!

Tomorrow night the stars will shine at the Oscars in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, we won’t get to see Mr. A on the red carpet at this year’s Academy Awards, but fingers crossed for next year. Because what that man does for a tux ain’t nobody’s business. Or, for that matter, for a suit. Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man, right?

And a sharp-dressed man needs to know how to work it, just like the ladies do. Here’s some advice the lovely Ilaria Urbinati, who styled our Richard for his Hobbit press junket and red carpet appearances, gave in an article for the Hollywood Reporter:

Men can’t be slouches, either. Notes stylist Ilaria Urbinati, who works with best actor nominee Bradley Cooper: “For a suit to look its best, it’s all about creating angles with your limbs. So a little bend in the knee and a little bend in the elbow with hand in pocket is always good. But the hand can’t be shoved too deep in the pocket or it creates bulk. Also, a little bit of lean to one side adds shape and movement, which always photographs best. A good example is Eddie Redmayne — he’s got his stance down.”

Love ya, Eddie, but I prefer RA’s stance. And, well–everything else! *sigh*
