On November 12, 2013, one of the most stylish parties of the year was held in Los Angeles. It was the GQ “Men of the Year” party. This celebration featured men like Justin Timberlake, and Will Ferrell, who have graced the cover of GQ. This year, others were recognized for their accomplishments included: Designer of the Year Tom Ford; Legend of the Year Michael Douglas; Breakthrough Designer of the Year Jonathan Saunders; and Genius of the Year Sir Elton John. Pretty much everyone wore noteworthy outfits, ranging from suits out of D&G to quasi-sportswear straight off of a Tony Pryce Sports catalog – we’re talking tennis shoes and running gear here. The ones guilty of the latter we won’t harp on; here are a couple of close-up’s on what the more gentlemanly gents wore:
On GQ’s red carpet there was a myriad of celebrities who were showing off their designer style. Actor Mathew McConaughey arrived in a shimmering grey Dolce & Gabbana suit. The sheen and color cover two trend of the season, which include metallic fabrics and the color grey. I like his choice in a slate blue dress shirt and pocket square to keep the cool color theme of the suit, but I think this particular shade of grey makes him look washed out.
Next, is Actor, Song Writer Andy Samberg who arrived to the GQ party of the year in his large, rounded spectacles, dark taupe plaid suit jacket, grey v-neck sweater, patterned dress shirt and maroon necktie. His “academic” style makes me think that you could find him at the podium for seminar on Biomedical Advances. Intelligence never goes out of style!
Actor, Singer Darren Criss is recognized buy us for the boldest look of the evening with his red and black large Buffalo Check Plaid jacket by Neil Barrett. This particular choice is bold, but he carries it well and the colors go great with his dark hair and skin tone. Darren’s choice of a black dress shirt and tie keep the focus on the jacket where it should be.
