With so many crimes in legal and detective TV shows and movies boiling down to a crime of passion, often spurred by jealousy or lust, it’s no wonder where the expressions “dressed to kill” and “if looks could kill” come from.
Last week, The Lincoln Lawyer, a crime drama based on the novel of the same name by Michael Connelly, opened to decent reviews saying that it was entertaining with some strong performances, if a bit formulaic. The movie stars Matthew McConaughey as Mickey Haller, a criminal defense lawyer who operates his law practice out of the back of his Lincoln sedan.
The reason for the office on wheels is that Haller needs to be driven around town by a chauffeur after getting a DUI. He also gets caught up in ethical dilemmas surrounding his clients.
On screen and offscreen, McConaughey has been sporting some snazzy designer frames. In the trailer for the film, at the 17 second mark, he can be seen wearing what look like Ray-Ban RB3423, although they may be a custom made lookalike pair of frames.
Offscreen McConaughey also wears various styles of Ray-Ban shades, though he’s been sighted a few times in Dolce & Gabbana (he used to be the face of the brand, and had an ad for his own fragrance with D & G that was much maligned for appearing heavily Photoshopped). And in the fashion world Photoshopping, though pretty common, is one crime that’s indefensible.
