The 2014 Emmy Awards Best-Dressed List: Men’s Edition

Normally when it comes to red carpet fashion, all eyes are on the leading (and supporting!) ladies. Post–awards show, the Internet is abuzz with “What was she thinking?” and “Oh my, she really nailed it.” But now it’s time to pay the men of the Emmy Awards the respect they so deserve. In old-school formal outfits, a whole lot of blue, and some fresh takes on traditional tuxes, these guys dressed to impress. But who came out on top?

GQ cast its vote in a recent articleSeth Meyers in navy Valentino (pictured above) hit it out of the park – not only with his dapper tux and bow tie, but with his monologues too. Bryan Cranston in Ralph Lauren Black Label proved that when you channel Clark Gable, you win a boatload of Emmys.

And then there was Ryan Sweeting in a striking blue tuxedo jacket. “We really expected the night’s A-list TV actors to make bolder moves on the red carpet,” said Matt Sebra of GQ. “Not the tennis pro husband of that blond girl from the Big Bang Theory. But the actors didn’t, Sweeting did, and that’s why he makes the list.” (Hey Ryan, can I borrow your jacket? I promise I’ll give it back.)

Matthew McConaughey Is Winning on the Red Carpet

This awards season, Matthew McConaughey has been on a roll – and I’m not just talking about his countless nominations for Dallas Buyers Club. He’s received standing ovations for his red-carpet looks, too.

Matthew McConaughey's Red-Carpet Success

British GQ rounded up eleven of the actor’s impressive looks, and from the checked three-piece suit at the London premiere of Dallas Buyers Club to the smoking jacket at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, McConaughey’s wardrobe has been anything but predictable. One common thread, however, seems to be a Dolce & Gabbana label, which is only natural considering he’s the spokesman for its The One cologne

Personally, I think McConaughey will stick with Dolce & Gabbana for the Academy Awards on Sunday – but who knows? Maybe he’ll surprise everyone with another Vivienne Westwood number. Either way, my bet is on him looking good.
