Solid Gold! Fashion Icon: Matthew McConaughey

Kicking Off my Fashion Icons 2014 series is none other than Mr. McConaughey. Look for a series of posts featuring the Oscar Winner that highlight his dapper fashion choices!

Solid Gold!

Remember Solid Gold?  You know, that 80’s television show that featured high energy choreography and toned fit dancers gyrating to the latest hits in fabulous, sparkling gold leotards?  Sure you do. Well, guess what?  So does Mr. McConaughey!  The “Magic Mike” actor goes for 80’s nostalgia (in a good way!) with this gold metallic Saint Laurent Spring 2014 dinner jacket. Now, I know many gentlemen would view this jacket as a fashion risk, but Mr. McConaughey is definitely making that risk payoff!  The “Interstellar” actor proves that men can also be glam, edgy and different while still maintaining a masculine and classic style.  This is one of the reasons (besides good fashion taste) that Mr. McConaughey is one of  my Fashion Icons.  It also doesn’t hurt when you’ve got gorgeous wife Camila Alves hanging on your arm looking impeccable!

Quick Style Inspiration: BTW, this jacket would make a great option for a Christmas or New Years Holiday party!

      Ha! Well I guess you are NOT a fan of this look! I assume you agree with those that believe the jacket belongs with the Solid Gold dancers back in the 70’s…and should stay there LOL! I must admit, I didn’t like the jacket when it was presented on the runway, but I do like it on Mr. McConaughey…for some reason I think it works…not sure why. Thanks for stopping by and commenting…I really enjoy your opinions!
