Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves attended the 25th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards on January 4, 2014 in Palm Springs, California. Matthew wore a gold jacquard tuxedo jacket from Saint Laurent, over a classic white shirt and black trousers. Black bow tie and lace-up shoes accessorised his look. Matthew McConaughey's gold tone jacket featured black contrasting satin notch lapels, with a single button centre.

Matthew looked absolutely gorgeous. The gold tone jacket was a brave choice amongst the sea of black, but the golden sheen added the perfect touch of class and glamour. The coppery/gold tone of the jacket also accentuated his beautiful tann complexion. The colour and fabric might be a tad 80s, but the cropped length and fit gave it a modern update. I feel it is also a brilliant choice, a nod towards "Dallas Buyers Club" set in 1985, in which his performance was widely praised. At this event, Matthew McConaughey was awarded the Desert Palm Achievement - Actor award.

I am really looking forward to "Dallas Buyers Club", an epic cast with a moving storyline. Looking forward to seeing more of Matthew McConaughey during awards season. He often wears Dolce & Gabbana for red carpet appearances (him being the face of "The One"), it is great to see him in something else. Golden boy he is.




The contrasting notch lapel jacket from Saint Laurent is a classic which gets revisited every season in variations. There is a grey wool version available online from MatchesFashion.com, now included in their sale (50% off!). A great classic choice if Matthew's gold version is a tad too "out there" for us.
