2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Menswear Round Up

Critics Choice Awards Men

Awards shows are always a women’s world, but at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, hosted at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, the boys really kept up with the girls, sauntering out plenty of enticingly formal, albeit rather similar, exits.

Eddie Redmayne: The British actor thrilled us in a trendsetting tan suit just one day earlier at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards, and his Acne tuxedo was equally great—in a completely different way. Glossy satin lapels on the plush jacket plus a thin tie and white pocket square were perfection at its finest. Eddie continues to earn his place among our ‘Les Miserables’ Best Ensemble Cast of 2012.

Matthew McConaughey: The ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ actor put his strikingly thin silhouette into the slim lines of Dolce & Gabbana’s incredibly sleek tux. He looked altogether dapper, especially with his bow tie, although I think we’re all eager to see Matthew back to his buff ways.

Cory Monteith: The ‘Glee’ cutie took Marc Jacobs for a spin and succeeded in A-plus form with his traditional black suit and tie paired with a white button-down.

Bradley Cooper: The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ star took home the Best Actor in a Comedy prize, but his charcoal gray suit by Tom Ford was less than winning. The color was a nice break from black, but the pants were too long and the sleeves a tad short.

John Krasinski: The actor accompanied his Best Actress nominee wife, Emily Blunt, but it’s obvious he left the spotlight for her. His lackluster Calvin Klein verged into boring territory, although the skinny leg of his pant was on trend.

John Hawkes: Dressed in an Alexander McQueen tuxedo, the actor cut a stylish profile. The suit’s impeccable lines paired with his wider, more substantial black tie didn’t go unnoticed.

Ben Affleck: Ben had a good night; he picked up the Best Director win for ‘Argo’ and he dressed for the occasion in, yes, another ubiquitous dark tux. But the look is still effortless on him. His facial hair was his biggest style statement.

Henry Cavill: The actor was a presenter, and he looked appropriately dapper in his black tux with white shirt and black bow tie, although Henry seemed to carry off this traditionally formal look with a touch of extra panache.

Ian Somerhalder: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ heartthrob thankfully broke the black and white monotony in his three-piece grey Dolce & Gabbana suit with a matching skinny tie and the sliver of a burgundy pocket square.

    Matthew and Ian, hands down. Will someone please explain Eddie’s stance? I don’t know who showed him this red carpet pose, but I can’t get passed it; take a cue off a few of the other relaxed men in this line up. And have a drink and relax already!

    Absolutely loving the first three gentlemen. Matthew is definitely looking better on this occasion and I love the bow tie. Cory’s suit is tailored perfectly, he looks very dapper. Eddie is my favourite, I love his jacket with the satin lapels and white pocket square.

    Just want to say thanks again for branching out to menswear FC, really enjoying it 😀

    Wow, so much eye candy! I’m in heaven. Matthew Mac got my top vote – he got a little David Niven going on (a cool, sleek and witty Brit). My second vote goes to Ian Somerhalder. I usually don’t care for CW (young adults TV channel) stars, but he surprised me here. Love the whole getup. All the other looks were alright. None felt too special.

    Ben Affleck = hot hot hot

    Eddie is gorgeous (though I think his jacket is a bit too slim fitted for him ..) and Ian is more than handsome (if that exists)!

    Matthew looks a lot better here, though still too thin. He, Ben and Ian are the best here–I like Eddie’s look too but the jacket is too small. Haha, in other words I agree with Nat39’s comment!

    Ian Somerhalder, definitely. He knocked it out of the park this time.

    All of them look very dapper. My favourite is Ian Somerhalder.

        Love his suit the most. They all look good. Great fitted suits 🙂

    Super sleek Matthew McC. followed by Ben Affleck and Ian Somerhalder.
    Eddie’s and John’s jackets look a size too small, Cory’s also looks kinda uncomfortable, Bradley’s pants are way too long, Henry isn’t sleek enough.
