This past Sunday, January 12, was the 71st Annual Golden Globe Award Ceremony, which was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. Since 1961, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has honored excellence in film and television.
The red carpet at the Golden Globes is the first place for us to get a look at celebrities showing off their designer selections. This year, there was certainly a nod to the glamour of “Old Hollywood” among the men and the women. A few of the guys, including Mathew McConaughey and Chris Hemsworth channeled the look of the velvet “smoking jacket” in their choice of tuxedos. Mathew chose a deep forest green, velvet suit jacket with an elegant matching vest and black trousers by Dolce and Gabbana. His wife Camilla Alves was also not to be ignored in her “curve-hugging” black sequined gown of the same designer.
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.
