Matt graced last night our TV screens at the Emmy Awards! He was there to present the award of Best Television Movie, alongside B.D. Wong.
Simon also joined Matt at the celebration, but they didn’t pose together at the red carpet. A photo of them both arrived on Instagram before the event.
You can watch Matt presenting the award below, and also some pictures in our gallery. More hopefully will surface later.
Matt Bomer is starring the new Fall campaign of Todd Snyder, that was released this week.
Five years ago Bomer reached Snyder on his first CFDA Awards. “He came up to me and said to me, ‘Hey I love your stuff. I was just blown away, obviously I’m a huge fan of his. Honestly, I don’t know if I said anything, I was a bit speechless.”
Over the next few years, the designer cultivated a relationship with the actor, who, he noted, had been a longtime customer of his brand. So when Snyder asked Bomer to appear in his fall campaign, it felt natural. The game plan for the photo shoot, he explained, was for Bomer to simply be himself.
“We wanted to tell our brand’s story through other people and Matt is someone who has great values and he’s a family man. He just fits our guy and who we want to be inspired by. And obviously he’s good-looking.”
Snyder said Bomer didn’t shave for four days to make the photos.
“So often [Bomer] looks almost perfect on screen, and I think he really likes the idea of looking more like he does every day. I’m sure he’s been told he’s beautiful so many times that I would think it would get annoying.”
Watch the campaign videos below, and head over our gallery to see the beautiful campaign, shot by Matthew Brookes.

To become a star in Hollywood and realise the American Dream, you often have to adopt a persona and leave your true self behind. That’s the experience of Monroe Stahr, the central character in Amazon Prime’s lavish new period drama The Last Tycoon, a wunderkind studio executive who ditches his Jewish name (Milton Sternberg) and heritage in order to metamorphose into a power player in the golden age of cinema. But for Mr Matt Bomer, who plays Stahr in the 10-episode adaptation of Mr F Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel, the opposite is true.
After making his name on US TV, most notably as a suave conman in 81 episodes of White Collar and then in 13 episodes of American Horror Story, Mr Bomer found international recognition in 2012 playing a ripped male stripper who drives women crazy in Magic Mike and its equally wild 2015 sequel Magic Mike XXL. In a demonstration of his range, that same year he won a Golden Globe for his moving performance as HIV/AIDS sufferer Felix Turner in the HBO film The Normal Heart. But his “first real acting role” was to spend several years as a young man growing up in a loving, conservative Christian family in Bible Belt Texas pretending he was straight.
