Film stars and fashion go together like a horse and carriage and killer leather riding boots, and while you may live you life in Levi's jeans and Gap tees (no shame in that), you can't help but admire those chosen few who wear next season's styles like they were meant for today.
With "Crazy Stupid Love" hitting DVD and Blu-ray (featuring the ultra-fashionable Mr. Ryan Gosling), we decided it was high time to pay homage to nine movie characters whose personal styles turned the silver screen into the world's biggest runway.

Somewhere between all the groan-inducing romantic comedies, naked bongo drum sessions and shirtless jogs on Southern California beaches, we have forgotten what a talented actor Matthew McConaughey can be. The last time he really wowed us for his acting instead of his sick abs and sparkling smile was in the 1996 legal drama "A Time to Kill."
But McConaughey the actor is back on top of his game in director Brad Lurman's "The Lincoln Lawyer," in which he plays cocky L.A. criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller. Mickey kicks around in a Lincoln Town Car driven by a former client and plays the justice system like a game of cards.
He eagerly takes the case of a wealthy Beverly Hills playboy Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillippe), who is accused of brutally assaulting a prostitute. What troubles Mickey is that the scenario bears an eerie resemblance to a previous case in which Mickey convinced his client to confess to murder.
