If you've not yet got on board with the smart suit being the va-va-voom dress alternative of the season, then here are some pics that might convince you to man up. Nicole Richie (below, centre), stylist Valentine Fillol-Cordier (below, left) and actress Gwei Lun-Mei (below, right) are proof that the suit of the moment's vital statistics are masculine, slouchy and white. Whether you channel a 70s vibe like Valentine and wear your relaxed suit with a low-heeled sandal and effortless hair and make-up, or you bring the white suit up to speed with violet locks like Nicole or a contemporary silhouette like Gwei in Dior, one thing is for sure – red wine is a no-no that night!
