2012 CFDA Fashion Awards Menswear Round Up

We couldn’t leave out the fellas who attended the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

Brad Goreski: The stylist was most definitely not a wallflower wearing a Kate Spade ‘Florence Broadhust’ Japanese floral print suit. The beautiful black-and-white suit, custom-made by Martin Greenfield, was styled with a cute quiff and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Matt Bomer: Upon seeing the actor I checked out his IMDb page as I wondered where he has been all my life. Turns out I have seen him in a movie, ‘In Time’ but his good looks appeared to pass me by. I guess that’s what happens when you watch a movie on a tiny airplane screen. Matt wore a shiny Calvin Klein jet-black suit with a black buttoned white dress shirt and a black bow tie.

Cameron Silver: Like Bradley, Cameron can always be relied upon to do something different. The Decades owner wore a custom Nicole Miller suit with a coordinated custom Rod Keenan hat. He accessorized with a Shamballa Jewels medallion necklace, a custom Lisa Kingsley bag and bi-colour Burberry shoes.

Seth Meyers: The host for the evening arrived wearing a black Band of Outsiders suit, but during the awards he donned the black Comme Des Garçons lace dress Marc Jacobs wore to the Met Gala earlier this year with the white boxers. No doubt is was a LOL moment.

Marc Jacobs: After wearing several Comme Des Garçons dresses in a row, the designer suited up for the fashion awards ceremony. His traditional black tux was styled with a Louis Vuitton clutch. Who would’ve thought that Marc would be the more reserved of the bunch.

    Brad Goreski always wins for me. I adore him. If I were a celebrity, he would be my stylist!!!

    It’s okay- Matt Bomber wasn’t on my radar either, but now that I know such a beautiful man exists, I am renting season one of his show “White Collar.” Things are distracting enough with Ryan Gosling and Alexander Skarsgård in existence right FC ;)

    • Emi June 5, 2012 at 21:48 #

      Odette, unfortunately Matt Bomer is marries to a man. So I prefer Gosling and Skarsgard and Michael Fassbender.

      • EmmaWoodhouse June 6, 2012 at 00:47 #

        I know, I’m so sad! He’s so good looking…
        I love his show White Collar! It’s amazing!
        Shout-out for mention of Gosling, Skarsgard, and Fassbender :)

        • Rosalie June 6, 2012 at 06:23 #

          Matt Bomer is so very fine. It doesnt matter if he’s married to man or a woman because lets face it, we aint gon get him either way LOL

          I’m waiting for Magic Mike. Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and Alcide from True Blood playing strippers. YES please ;)

          • Jess2 June 6, 2012 at 10:31 #

            Channing Tatum for sure, he is super fine as is Joe Manganiello (Alcide and also loved him in OTH). I am a Gosling and Skarsgard girl too.

            Anyway, Seth looks hilarious it was a bold move. Brad wins for me, I love his style

  2. Nat39 June 5, 2012 at 21:33 #

    Brad and Cameron consistently look comical to me, ‘different’ has to be done right too (at least Seth’s lace dress look is intentional lol).
    Seth in suit and tie and sexy Math look fantastic.

  3. Yeliz June 5, 2012 at 21:38 #

    I definitely had big LOL moment right now.

    Brad looks good. Actually I only like this look, because it’s Brad. Otherwise I’m not a fan of patterned suits.
    Matt Bomer could’ve looked dapper in my eyes, but I really dislike shiny suits.

  4. Paddy M June 5, 2012 at 21:39 #

    You should google Matt Bomer, FC. His fashion sense is very highly regarded. He’s one of the few mens style icons.

  5. Emi June 5, 2012 at 21:45 #

    Am I too conservative if I write that I like men dressed like men? I like Matt Bomer and Seth Meyer, the others, Brad Goreski included are… well, terrible. Cameron Silver looks like he’s going to a beach party. Please men, leave bags, clutches and purses to women.

    • Paulo June 5, 2012 at 22:54 #

      That last sentence. Please, it’s 2012. I would kill for Marc’s clutch.

      • Emi June 6, 2012 at 09:28 #

        I know it’s 2012, and women keep shave their legs and wear make up bras. Sorry, men wearing bags, purses and clutches are ridiculous for me. When I see Marc Jacobs carrying a Birkin I think “What a waste of such a beautiful bag”.

    • Nat39 June 6, 2012 at 20:10 #

      I’m with you, Emi. There’s nothing appealing about a man taking an effeminate approach in dressing/accessorizing. A man should look like a man imo no matter what (just look at Matt here)regardless of his sexual preferences(I could care less).

      • Emi June 7, 2012 at 11:39 #

        Well said Nat39. If you don’t like women it’s ok, but don’t dress like them :-)

  6. robbie June 5, 2012 at 22:31 #

    matt looks fantastic. brad and cameron look frickin ridiculous, especially cameron.

  7. Christine June 5, 2012 at 22:33 #

    Matt is a hottie. Brad is too cute :)

  8. Paulo June 5, 2012 at 22:52 #

    I usually like what Matt Bomer wears but his suit is too baggy – I think slim fit suits looks better on him.

    To me, Cameron always come across as a fashion victim.

  9. JGH June 5, 2012 at 23:24 #

    FC, Matt Bomer is on a show called White Collar but I’m not sure that it airs in the UK. You should check it out if you can get it on DVD, although you’ll just have to admire from afar as he doesn’t play for your team ha.

    • Fashion Critic June 6, 2012 at 00:03 #

      Not sure it does. I will look out for it

    • Jones19 June 6, 2012 at 16:50 #

      White Collar is a great show and Matt is always in fancy suits and rocking fedoras on it! You’d love it FC :D

      • jkrau July 6, 2012 at 03:01 #

        Yes! White Collar is worth watching for his outfits alone ;)

  10. Hannah June 5, 2012 at 23:49 #

    I really love these menswear style recaps! I find them to be a lovey change of pace, and very interesting because I know nothing about menswear other than the limited knowledge my boyfriend imparts on me.
    Matt is gorgeous, but even with all th eye candy on this post, my eye can’t help but be drawn to Seth’s date’s (Alexi Ashe I believe) beautiful earrings, and of course her shoes too.

  11. Margaux B. June 6, 2012 at 00:03 #

    Cameron Silver looks great because he knows how to have fun and thats what fashion should be. I Heart Cameron!!!!!!

  12. Kiki June 6, 2012 at 00:07 #

    Cameron is a fashion icon in Japan!!!!!! he is a true dandy!!!!!

  13. justme June 6, 2012 at 01:32 #

    It’s Matt Bomer, not Bomber and his face is indeed flawfree ;)

  14. lelaid June 6, 2012 at 02:20 #

    ugh, i cannot believe marc showed up with his porn star boyfriend. what happened to lorenzo? he was always sharply dressed and classy. i think marc should be awarded the worst accessory of the night… :P

  15. JIM June 6, 2012 at 02:47 #

    HEY! you need to remember that fashion is supposed to be FUN! remember fun? Cam certainly does – lets not forget his store on melrose is an INSTITUTION that many actresses old to young RELY on for red carpet to every day – you should thank this guy because he polished vintage as you know it today.

    cant speak for brad, but he looks like he loves what he is wearing. GO CAM! look forward to another 20yrs!

  16. Rebecca June 6, 2012 at 02:51 #

    Cameron understands that fashion is supposed to be fun and offer escape from the everyday. He is totally self-aware and one of the nicest people in the transcontinental red carpet orbit. I always love seeing what he puts together. Viva baby cam cam!

    • Elizabeth K June 7, 2012 at 00:58 #

      I agree rebecca! I love cam cam. Go glam squad!

  17. Lea Juliano June 6, 2012 at 03:19 #

    Cameron Silver killed it! Love the pattern of the suit.

  18. Elizabeth K June 6, 2012 at 03:30 #

    Cameron Silver is totally rocking this look. So fresh and summery – he looks great. Classy, but totally fun – these are the CFDA Awards for crying out loud- way to go Cameron for taking a risk and looking super chic! Black suits are for bores.

  19. Ella June 6, 2012 at 03:34 #

    Matt Bomer hasn’t been on your radar, FC?!?! He really needs to be. In both his personal life, and on his show, “White Collar,” he has impeccable fashion sense. I love the guy =)

  20. Gary June 6, 2012 at 04:24 #

    Cameron Silver looks smashing, as always. Cameron’s genius lies in the fact that he’s not afraid to take risks and have FUN with fashion. He’s like the Oscar Wilde of the fashion world. It is truly sad that some people are too small minded to appreciate this. When his personal archive is on view at the Costume Institute at the MET, I wonder what the haters will be saying.

  21. Alina June 6, 2012 at 04:55 #

    Brad looks good.

  22. Mallory June 6, 2012 at 04:58 #

    Cameron Silver looks amazing as usual! Not many men have the courage, let alone the taste level to pull off trend setting cutting edge fashion the way he does. He should be revered, sought after for his fashion advice & knowledge & photographed constantly! Oh yeah, he already is!! Cheers!!

  23. SL June 6, 2012 at 09:18 #

    OMG! :) You don’t know Matt? Well, I guess White Collar doesn’t air in the UK. He plays this very charming con artist-turned-FBI consultant. Anywho,in the show he is always dressed to the nines. His style on the show is very classic. :)

  24. Maosa June 6, 2012 at 11:20 #

    LOL at Seth. good one!

  25. Jones19 June 6, 2012 at 16:51 #

    Seth is freaking hilar! Shout out to my crush Matt Bomer, LOVE HIM!

  26. Amy June 6, 2012 at 19:07 #

    Brad is still Brad lol! he looks like… himself
    Seth was hilarious (saw some videos online) and Marc Jacobs was kind enough to send him the dress

  27. PATTI June 6, 2012 at 23:16 #

    Once again Cameron Silver looked amazing! Always a risk taker..and legend in the making! That’s FASHION folks!

  28. L'Mae June 7, 2012 at 01:58 #

    Cameron is perfectly dressed for the occasion. Let’s remember, it’s an event put on by the Fashion Industry for Fashion Designers, so some extra flair is appropriate! I get so tired of seeing the same, safe old outfits all the time, his choice is a breath of fresh air.
    Re: Seth, for or a “non-fashion” guy, he always seems to look great in everything- even lace!

  29. Gwwoww June 7, 2012 at 05:35 #

    Never afraid to take a risk, and a pioneer for fashion on all levels. Cameron always pushes the envelope and inspires those of us who live for people as creative and unique as himself. Amazing amazing amazing as usual. The unexpected is always expected.

    • chrisjohnson June 7, 2012 at 18:57 #

      Agreed. Cameron looks fantastic, fun, cerebral; especially compared to the prom penguins in the other pics. Marc Jacobs looks like he’s at a wedding with his mom and he’s holding his purse for her. Not chic, but more importantly, not interesting.

      Cameron and Brad are the only two who look worth having a conversation with. It would be lively, fun and informed.

  30. elizabeth June 7, 2012 at 06:06 #

    CAMERON SILVER IS THE MOST STYLISH AND HANDSOME MAN ON THE PLANET! He looks like his as per usual super-fab self!

  31. Pat H June 7, 2012 at 06:14 #

    I think Cameron looks chic – he always knows how to accessorize and pull a great look together!

  32. chang anthony June 7, 2012 at 14:18 #

    cameron he is sexist fashion icon. this look just perfect!

  33. Seaniqua Jackson June 7, 2012 at 20:04 #

    Cameron looks fly in that suit! He wins for most daring. Matt Bomer looks very handsome in a classic way. So Matt and Cameron win for me. Brad looks like a total self obsessed tool.

  34. Rod June 8, 2012 at 16:39 #

    God bless the guys that go the extra mile for fashion! Keeping it fresh for the rest. Go go go brad and cam

  35. Rod June 8, 2012 at 16:40 #
