How This Guy Gave the Ladies a Red Carpet Run For Their Money

Mar 2 2014 - 6:20pm

There's an unlikely contender for the best dressed star on this award season's red carpet. Sorry, it's not newcomer Lupita [1]. Nope, it's not even fashion-forward Cate [2] or the stunning Sandra [3] either. It's Matthew McConaughey [4].

Nominated for best actor for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, the former rom-com star has taken a serious style turn that already deserves a standing ovation. Why? While his fellow nominees are content to wear black suit after black suit on the red carpet, he has brought creativity to every one of his looks, which is no easy feat in the menswear arena. Plus, it's not anyone who can stand on the arm of his gorgeous wife, Camila Alves, and still get our undivided attention. Alright, alright. Let's get started.

Matthew McConaughey at the Academy Awards

In the culmination of his award season run, the actor stood out in an ivory one-button Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo jacket with black pants and Christian Louboutin custom crocodile shoes – all while on the arm of Camila, who wore a soft pink Gabriela Cadena gown that didn't take attention away from her husband.

The actor might be going for gold this award season, but for the Independent Spirit Awards, he went all bronze – along with a pair of blue suede shoes.

A man not afraid to sparkle is a rare find, and we were impressed to see Matthew donning a shimmering midnight blue jacket over a black shirt, black bow tie, and black pants while in Berlin, Germany. (Oh, sorry, Camila, we didn't see you there.)

McConaughey fans, steel yourselves. The pattern of the sexy three-piece Dolce & Gabbana suit he wore in London might make you think you've got double vision. But don't let that stop you from looking.

When in Rome! On a trip to Italy, Matthew paid his fashion respects by wearing Dolce & Gabbana. While this is about as traditional as he gets, suit-wise, we loved his unbuttoned, no-tie styling.

The star continued his Dolce & Gabbana suit streak at the Rome premiere of Dallas Buyers Club with a vibrant, printed suit and burgundy tie. Still, he shared the Italian love by wearing Salvatore Ferragamo shoes.

What? Wear a basic black tuxedo to an awards show? No, not Matthew. At January's Screen Actors Guild Awards, he opted for a Dolce & Gabbana number — a printed jacket with black velvet lapels and black pants.

Matthew McConaughey at the Critics' Choice Awards

Made in the shade! Matthew was the epitome of red carpet cool at the Critics' Choice Awards in sunglasses, a Lanvin silver silk tuxedo with black pants, and a crisp bowtie. You need to really zoom in on that jacket to appreciate the textured houndstooth print.

Don't you wish you could reach out and touch him? This Dolce & Gabbana hunter green velvet three-piece tuxedo was a lush alternative to typical red carpet suiting so often found at the Golden Globe Awards. And next to Camila's equally textural long-sleeve dress, it was a serious couple style statement.

Matthew McConaughey at the Palm Springs Film Festival

The actor must have had a gold statue on his mind early on. Why else would he kick off the new year, and his award-season run, with anything other than a metallic gold blazer by Saint Laurent? Matthew shined alongside Camila at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards gala in early January.
