Bold Face explores the cult of celebrity and the styles, trends and brands that stars show off in movies, at events and living their daily lives. To be considered for inclusion please contact senior editor, Deirdre Carroll.

Starlets often get all the hype but here at Bold Face we’re a big fan of movie men too. In our latest edition, we feature three super talented actors and some of their most recent projects…

After playing Jackie Robinson in 42, Chadwick Boseman is now determined to nail the role of the “Godfather of Soul,” James Brown, in the highly anticipated biopic Get on Up. The film chronicles Brown’s rise from extreme poverty to become one of the most influential musicians in history, charting his ups and downs along the way. Get on Up hits theaters on August 1. Boseman’s personal style is a bit less flashy than Brown’s but no less fashionable, here he wears the Sean John SJ852S sunglasses from Marchon...

Stanley Tucci is the consummate character actor and his vast talent cannot be denied. From period pieces, to comedy to blockbuster action flicks he nails them all. In Transformers: Age of Extinction, the fourth in the series’ franchise, which hit theaters on June 27, Tucci plays Joshua Joyce, the arrogant head of KSI who wants to build his own Transformers. So you know… the villain of the story. Tucci may play a bad guy in the movie but the character wears great glasses; the Mykita Mylon Pantera supplied for the film by L.A.-based Gogosha Optique

Brad Pitt is a big screen favorite. His next film, Fury, an action war drama, premieres on Nov. 14, 2014. In the film, Pitt’s character commands a five-man Sherman tank on a deadly mission behind enemy lines in during World War II. Unfortunately, after that, his next starring role isn’t due to hit until 2016. He does, however, have several production projects in the works and rumor has it he will soon wed long time lady love, Angelina Jolie… which hopefully means Pitt in a tux! Tuxedos are always nice but he looks really great in these Barton Perreira Notorious sunglasses during his recent arrival in France too.
