There was a glut of famous men wearing nice clothes on the Upper West Side over the weekend, which can mean one of many things. In this case, however, the occasion was the world premiere of David O. Russell’s latest film, a post-WWI murder mystery called Amsterdam which stars, among others, Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Rami Malek, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Zoe Saldana, Mike Myers, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Taylor Swift and Robert De Niro. And when a project comes out of Hollywood with so many famous people attached to it, it’s sure to provide substantial red carpet fodder.
Many of those A-list players were in attendance at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall Sunday, with the addition of Ben Stiller, who moderated a post-screening panel conversation, and the one and only Drake, who served as producer. executive of the film along with its production – company mates Future and Matthew Budman. (That said, the tension surrounding Russell, who has brought up multiple allegations of misconduct, including a 2011 sexual assault allegation by his niece, was not addressed by the big names of the attendees on stage.) And even for a relatively low-key premiere in Manhattan, Drizzy … who came in an amethyst velvet Tom Ford jacket, shiny black boots, and cool braids he’d made while dining at a luxury Matsuhisa sushi restaurant the night before – gave the tone of Hollywood.
Bale, meanwhile, wore a shiny 80s-style suit, an incongruous choice for a 1930s-set movie filled with tweeds and slapdash bow ties, although technically there are no rules that say red carpet ensembles should be. theme. In tandem with his off-duty navy blue tone suit at the start of the day, Bale’s on and off-duty style would make sense on a costumed mood board for another hit at a American gigolo remake.
Malek’s day-to-night wardrobe, with the help of his stylist Ilaria Urbinati, looked more like 2022 and also featured two sides of the coin of current menswear trends: at the start of the day, he wore a single-breasted Prada jacket. fastened with a plastic buckle and nylon strap, before moving on to a slightly more classic but still very trendy Prada dress with a square cut and a winged Cartier brooch.
Her co-star, John David Washington, also wore Prada, in the form of a post-summer khaki dress.
Shannon, in her best periwinkle suit and an olive knit tie, and Myers, in a nice charcoal wool jacket and worn trainers, completed the buffet. Hollywood is back, even inside Amsterdam in New York.
