Camila Alves wore gold Marchesa to the ‘Gold’ premiere: a golden tragedy?


Here are some photos of Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves at last night’s premiere of Matt’s new film, Gold. That’s the weird-looking true story of the Bre-X mining scandal in the 1990s. I’m also including a photo of MM’s costar Edgar Ramirez, who I believe should be a bigger deal. Like, I think Edgar has the potential to be the next Oscar Isaac-level internet-boyfriend. As for Camila… her dress here is Marchesa, because of course it is. I was staring at this thing for minutes, trying to figure out the design or what was really happening here, but then I was like, “Oh, it’s Marchesa, there is no rhyme or reason.” I suspect she just chose this terrible dress because it was shiny and GOLD, like the movie.

Meanwhile, we’re getting another McConaughey promotional tour where he talks about food and his weight constantly. The last time this happened, he dropped so much weight for Dallas Buyers Club and he ended up winning an Oscar. This time he put on weight and he’s not getting an Oscar. He told E! News:

“I haven’t ever done that. I said, ‘McConaughey, you have six months to say yes to whatever you want to eat and whatever you want to drink. Whenever.’ That was fun. The only thing that gets tiring is the thought of quitting. It was fortunate that I was like, ‘Oh, this is also my job, so let’s go—all green lights.’ My favorite food is cheeseburgers, so I was eating cheeseburgers all the time. I was making cheeseburgers. I was trying out all these fast food restaurants that I’ve never had, or I’ve only had one time. Not that much sweets. Cheeseburgers and beer will do the trick.”

He also said that he stopped working out completely and he wouldn’t even walk up one flight of stairs because “that would be too much exercise.” Apparently, Camila and the kids loved Fat Matthew. They started calling Captain Fun. I’ve been thinking about “giving up” exercising too, with the incoming Baby Fists administration. I just keep thinking, “what does it even matter anymore? Just stop going to the gym and eat whatever you like.” I’m not going to do that, but still… it’s an option I never really considered before.

    Gaudy Chandelier, ultra bronzed, too much jewelries around her neck and none on arms and fingers. Awful

  2. Lucy says:

    The dress is not good, but her beauty elevates it imo.

  3. Miss Grace Jones says:

    Maybe I’m tacky because I like it. A lot.

  4. Nev says:

    Sexy couple.

  5. sarri says:

    Edgar Ramirez is really handsome!

  6. Guest says:

    I like it – except the necklace, that’s a bit too much.

  7. shelly says:

    I like it too, though I think my spirit animal might be a Magpie.

  8. Grant says:

    She’s exquisitely beautiful, even in that doily abomination. I don’t think his looks ever recovered after he lost all that weight.

  9. Clare says:

    Why is that jewelry?

  10. QueenEllisabet says:

    Matthew looks homeless

  11. KBeth says:

    Beautiful woman, terrible dress. MM has lost his hot : (

  12. astrid says:

    They both look terrible in the photos. She’s a gorgeous woman and this ensemble does her no justice.

  13. Hannah says:

    Matthew discovered the Oscar way and DiCaprio is going to die if he gets a second before him.

  14. Shambles says:

    I feel like gold, movies and dresses, is just not the thing to do right now…

  15. Ani says:

    She looks beautiful

  16. Ankhel says:

    My grandmother would kill for lampshades in that style, to go with the similar cushions and the robin’s egg coloured carpet in her living room. My grandfather would’ve retreated a bit more permantly into his hobby room. Yikes.

  17. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    GAH! That could possibly be *the* worst Marchesa dress featured here. Ever.

  18. teacakes says:

    That is way too much shiny on her, but she is GORGEOUS and the best compliment I’ve ever had on my appearance was that I looked like her (back on an old ‘who do you look like’ pic posting thread – I didn’t know who she was and had to google)

  19. Sumodo1 says:

    My mother always told me: “When you’re beautiful, you don’t need ALL THAT.” There was a hand gesture accompanying the “ALL THAT.” Camila Alves looks best in minimalist designs.

    Edgar is EVERYTHING. I even sat through Point Break for that man. I clicked on this story hoping for a peek.

  21. Lily says:

    Oh God, yes, Edgar Ramirez is my new crush. I thought i was the only one. I changed Michael Fassbender for him. The man is not only a good actor (Carlos, Zero Dark Thirty), charming, humble and hot but also he is smart: has a university degree in communications and he speaks five languages fluently: Spanish, German, English, French, and Italian. He is a Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
