Matthew McConaughey in Dolce&Gabbana at the 2013 GQ Men of the Year Party

Posted on November 14, 2013

We’ll give him this: the man has an innate talent for making anything he wears look a little sleazy.


Matthew McConaughey attends the 2013 GQ Men Of The Year Party at The Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles, California in Dolce&Gabbana.

Dolce&Gabbana Spring 2014 Collection

He looks like he swam through baby oil to get there.

Granted, this would look great if the suit wasn’t so damn shiny, but since he’s getting a lot of critical acclaim right now and could conceivably land a nomination or two for Dallas Buyer’s Club, someone needs to do a style rethink on him. The Academy doesn’t like giving awards to people who dress like strip club managers.

In other words, skip the D&G and get yourself into some Tom Ford pronto, McC. D&G says “I’m hot and I’m getting laid” and Tom Ford says “I’m a man of substance.” True story.

      God, I can smell the sleaze through my phone…

    • Vickiefantastico

      I’m trying to like the shininess, really I am, but yeah, it’s sleazy. No way around it.

    • willworktomorrow

      There needs to be a term for Male Skank. Mank?

      • Sobaika


        • NOLA_gal

          Skankus-Americanus. It’s a true species, with both male and female varietals.

      • NinaBoo

        He’s the male version of Blake Lively. Everything they wear takes on a tacky/sleazy appearance.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      And the fit is perfection till we get to that tragic pant hem. *sigh* But sleazeball is what it says very loudly indeed.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        How hard is it to have a hem properly done? We see this so often on male celebs on the RC.

        • Kiltdntiltd

          I could have hand blind hemmed those pants and pressed them in under a half hour. It ain’t rocket science.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I knew I could go to you for the answer to my question!

    • Glam Dixie

      That suit is waaaaay too shiny to be able to stay out of Sleazville. This man is not aging very well to my eyes.

      • ampg

        I think there are guys who can pull off a shiny suit without looking sleazy, but he is in no way one of those guys.

    • AC Simons

      He does look a bit sleazy here, but he is just fantastic in “Dallas Buyer’s Club” so I’m giving him a pass.

      • OpinionatedMtnGirl

        I can’t wait to see it – looks fabulous

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        He was also fabulous in “Mud”, which is a fine film.

        • Adriana_Paula

          The poster for Mud is the only place I’ve ever seen him where he didn’t make me recoil from the sleaziness. He so seems like a dirty, crazy dude in the woods that it oddly works for me.

      • decormaven

        Oooh! I can’t wait to see this film. I’m interested in his performance; Jared Leto’s as well.

        • AC Simons

          Jared Leto is great as well. He really embodies the role (as a woman he’s gorgeous) and acts the hell out of the role. He and MM are just plain fierce.

    • Bebe

      I”m trying to think of someone who would NOT look sleazy in this. Tom Hiddleston? Certainly a bad choice for MM or anyone high on the skeeve scale already.

      • Cheryl

        Mmmm, Tom Hiddleston, but in the bronze one.

      • lunchcoma

        I think Hiddles could pull off the jacket. I think even he might look sleazy in the whole ensemble, especially given his occasional Jon Hamm problems.

        • TAGinMO

          Hiddles has Jon Hamm problems?!

          Excuse me, I’m off to the Google!

          • lunchcoma

            So often that people have given it a name – the Hiddleconda.

            • DTLAFamilies

              Ha!!! I didn’t get all of the Hiddleston love until he started dancing and now I’m mesmerized by the gif of him doing snake hips on the bed.

            • TAGinMO

              Oh My Dear Sweet Baby Jesus. That is poetry in motion.

        • MartyBellerMask

          I’m not sure that’s a “problem” at all.

      • Adriana_Paula

        Alan Cumming would OWN this suit.

        • lunchcoma

          Oh. Yes. This is totally his suit.

    • LadyCelia

      I think that suit would make anyone look sleazy–it just kind of has the Miami coke dealer feel.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      “Where’s my money, bitch?” I mean, this is just pimptastically awful!

    • annabelle archer

      What is that, shark?

      • HomeOfficeGirl


    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Looks like the “bad” Terminator from T2…the one who could move his foot a little and absorb some of his molten self that got blown off. Oh..what? That’s not what they were going for??

    • Cheryl

      I like the bronzish one on the model. Bebe suggested Tom Hiddleston, in the bronze mmmmm. The grey is much too gangster for me.

    • Diego!

      Please somebody tell Matthew he can breathe as soon as the flashes go off. I don’t like this at all. Besides, what happened to his face?? He looks too tired.

      • sagecreek

        He lost about 50 pounds for the role. Looking tired and sick was part of it.

        • MartyBellerMask

          But filming is long since over. I worry.
          ETA- not really my business, not really worried, not really the place for speculation. Sorry.

          • sagecreek

            Given how snarky I generally am, I’m charmed. Go, you.

    • gabbilevy

      This makes me want to wipe my hands. Yich. C’mon Matt.

    • YoungSally

      I was on the subway yesterday and there was a guy (a playuh I am sure) wearing suit pants that appeared to be sharkskin in the front (the fabric not the animal) and a shiny pinstripe in the back….for some unknown reason I was thinking, “Ewww kinda sleazy…but he’s probably good in bed.”

    • lunchcoma

      The shiny suit trend needs to be stopped.

      • conniemd

        yep. any guy would look sleazy in this suit.

        • Kiltdntiltd

          Yeah, even the model looks like the eldest son of a Mafia don in a bad movie.

    • kimmeister

      Ah, that explains why D&G keep making hot widow wear. Somebody must be servicing those widows.

    • kimmeister

      I like the pocket square.

    • Clueless_Jock

      Wow he got skinny…

      • filmcricket

        He’s actually on his way back up – he lost it for Dallas Buyers Club. I think he should try some Zegna before he puts the weight all back on and he’s too beefy to pull it off.

      • Frank_821

        he’s still putting the weight back on that he lost for Dalllas Buyers Club. He’s trying to do carefully

    • KinoEye

      “The man has an innate talent for making anything he wears look a little sleazy.” <— THIS. He can act quite well, but he will never not read as sleazeball to me. My mom can't stand him for that very reason, either, so I guess it runs in the family.

    • TAGinMO

      In fairness to Mr. McConaughey, he is not making this suit look sleazy. It’s doing the heavy lifting all on its own. This is merely an example of where form and function meet.

    • jw_ny


    • wisenhar

      Eeew, that shirt has snaps, not buttons. Gross.

      • MilaXX

        Because it’s a dark chambray. Who pairs a denim shirt with a suit?

    • MilaXX

      Until he’s back to his normal weight, I’d also advise against open collar shirts. He looks part giraffe.

      • Ginny Ellsworth

        Do you think a nice, crisp dress shirt and a suitably gorgeous tie would help tow him out of Sleezerville? Asked nicely, not being foolish.

        • MilaXX

          On someone else maybe, but since Mathew already looks a bit sleezy, wearing a shiny suit will always look pimpish on him.

    • imspinningaround

      No thanks, no thanks, no thanks.

    • Rhonda Shore

      What about Armani?

    • housefulofboys

      Yeah, the first thing I thought when I read the first line was, “How can you NOT look sleazy in a suit that shiny??” He always treads a fine line between hot and trashy, I think it has something to do with his shit-eating grin and the way he holds his head. Tom Ford, brilliant suggestion.

    • Irish Rodriguez Reyes

      “True story.” Hahaha!

    • sagecreek

      Did anyone else hear the interview where he said losing 47 pounds for the role was “kinda fun”? I hate him now :)

    • Danielle


    • Morales Mike

      From Two Broke Girls this week: “…this surfer dude was hot. He looked like Matthew McConaughey but without the fake hair.” Ouch. Is it me or is he still super-thin? But I must say I don’t hate the D&G commercials with him and ScarJo.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I’m just not liking that shiny fabric-it really detracts from the cut of the suit.

    • Imasewsure

      I love it on the model… not sleazy there but it takes a Cummings perhaps to make this work in “real life”

    • Not applicable

      i know he lost a lot of weight- but has he done something to his face? something looks different… altered.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      It’s from the Dolce & Gabbana Lounge Lizard Collection.

    • Mismarker

      I hope the Oscar he wins for Dallas Buyer’s Club will make him feel better about losing his handsome. : (

    • CarrieBaby

      Maybe if the suit was tailored a bit more then it would look better. I’m loving the runway version though

    • NoveltyRocker

      Shiny is just bad usually but if you’re gonna do it artfully, I think it has to be just as it is on the runway. Super-slim tailoring, crisp buttonup—buttoned all the way up—minimal accessorizing. A spare, structured styling counters all the sheen in the suit and keeps it from overwhelming.

    • formerlyAnon

      I like a bit of a sheen to a jacket, but this is Too Much.

    • tintashoopa

      The expression on the face of the model just kills me! “Peasants.”

      • Trickytrisha

        Maybe those tight pants gave him a wedgy and is trying not to grimace.

    • Sam Smith

      I am really looking forward to the new HBO series with him and Woody Harrelson.

    • MartyBellerMask

      Shiny suits are The Worst.

    • madscntst

      A LITTLE sleazy? I feel extremely violated and I wasn’t even there.

    • Ginny Ellsworth

      Perhaps if he wasn’t standing like he had to pee, it would look better……nah, he’s a oil slick.

    • Erica

      He’s super oily pretty much always. But there’s something about him I love–and I haven’t even seen his new, good movies. I guess because we’re both Texan–he fits a certain endearing archetype from here. Bro meets rodeo?

      • hellkell


        Sorry, I’ll show myself out.

    • Trickytrisha

      Sleazesuit has to go. But what’s more alarming is that his face still looks like he’s homeless and down on his luck. That extreme weight loss must have had a lasting effect, or he’s yet to gain back a significant amount. He looks unlike his formerly hunky self.

    • AndreaSkates

      A suit this shiny SCREAMS for a huge pinkie ring and a veritable rug-worth of chest hair. Anything less, and it’s just Used Car Salesman.

    • GorgeousThings

      It’s not just the disco sharkskin suit – it’s compounded by the open necked shirt. At least on the runway the model is buttoned up all the way.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      A ‘little’ sleazy? Y’all are too kind.

    • Kayemwhy yo

      This is a suit for Mickey Rourke.

    • Janet B

      I vaguely remember someone wearing a shiny suit well; obviously it was not him.

    • MinAgain

      And the shirt is just wrong.

    • e jerry powell

      I was about to say…

      There is nothing in the D&G spring collection that wouldn’t make anyone look like a strip club barker.

      Has he gained all the weight back? He still looks a little haggard about the face.

    • quiltrx

      He should challenge Jeremy Renner to a sleaze-off!

    • guest2visits

      Wow I agree. Tom Ford stat. He could look much better. Nice to see him looking a lot healthier though.

    • siriuslover

      I can’t even deal with him. The suit didn’t make the sleaze here.

      • Plink

        I so agree! It’s not the suit’s fault. It’s all him. Big sleaze.

    • fursa_saida

      If Tom Ford says “I’m a man of substance,” someone should tell them to stop dressing Justin Timberlake. He’s ruining their brand.

    • hellkell

      He looks like he’d leave trails of bronzer and lube all over the house.

    • Michelle Gennari

      Tooooo shiny!
