Cam Gigandet for GQ Magazine

Posted on May 11, 2011

We know him from Burlesque (which is an absolute MUST SEE if you’re drinking with friends – or hell, drinking alone. We don’t judge here.) but apparently Cam Gigandet is in that movie about a priest vampire hunter called Priest ( presumably because Priest Vampire Hunter was too obvious even for Hollywood) and that means he gets to stand and pose for GQ magazine.

Suit and shirt by Calvin Klein Collection. Loafers by Prada. Bracelet by Miansai by Michael Saiger.

T-shirt by Guess. Pants Burberry Brit. Belt by Gap. Bracelets by Me&Ro. Necklace by Rogues Gallery. Fedora by Selima by V.

Polo shirt by Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger. Chinos by Unis. Belt by Burkman Bros. Fedora by Urban Outfitters.

Shirt by Band of Outsiders. Shorts by Bottega Veneta. Belt by Gucci.

Sweater by Prada. Chinos by Acne. Sandals by Barbara Shaum. Belt by Band of Outsiders. Bracelets by Miansai by Michael Saiger. Fedora by Still Life.

Shorts by Louis Vuitton. Shirt by Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger. Espadrilles by Topman. Belt by Paul Smith Accessories. Bracelets by Miansai by Michael Saiger. Necklace by Rogues Gallery.

Sports jacket by Gucci. Jeans by Levi’s. Sandals by Tom Ford. Bracelet by Me&Ro.

Well, he’s easy on the eyes, that’s for sure. The clothes get a little douchey at times, though. How many jaunty little fedoras and clingy shirts does one guy need? And why is he so far away from the camera in every shot? Was the photographer mad at him? Does he smell? We have many questions.

    I agree with the comment on how far away the camera is. He just doesn’t do it for me anyways. Nice body though.

    Well, see, this guy can model. I could never pick him out of a lineup, but it works for me. And, oh, the colors! That alone is more than enough.
    Ruffalo’s still hotter though, ‘model’ or not. :)

    He IS so far away from the camera! What is up with that? If he is easy on the eyes as you say, I would not have been able to tell.

    How are we supposed to appreciate the clothes (or the model) if the camera’s so far away? I like this colorful editorial more than the Essential Homme posted yesterday.

    I really like the gun show in the second pic.

    Maybe the distance is supposed to suggest candid shots. His arms are freakishly large in that 2nd pic.

    I think he looks hot, hot, hot! Maybe that’s because the camera is so far away, though?

    I think the shots might be from so far away because the photographer was more interested in the whole “canvas” of the brightly colored clothes located in brightly colored places? I think these pictures are better understood as urban architectural photography. The clothes are just one more block of color in highly color-blocked settings.

    “Chinos by Acne” — who the what? Why would you name a clothing line Acne? (and this question comes from someone who, yes, has worn Urban Decay makeup from time to time. But Acne? Really?)

    No no. Priest Vampire Hunter isn’t too obvious for Hollywood. They just didn’t get to pick the name since it’s a movie based on a Korean graphic novel.

    Burlesque was truly a horrid movie…but he was nice candy to watch. I also want to know why we can’t really see him. Maybe he had gas?

    • Anonymous guy

      Yes, Burlesque was definitely not “must-see”. I could not take my eyes off of Cher’s frozen facial features, and cringe to think about what she has done to herself. This guy was okay, though.

    But – what is up with those two pictures with girls who look like hookers climbing on him?! Don’t get that…

  • ask

    Second picture – the Guess t-shirt… I would not think that a ruched t-shirt with a cowl neck would be a man’s t-shirt. hmm interesting.

    Really like the green shorts. I like the clothes better here than the last couple of colorful shoots

    Photographer was more interested in the overall composition of the photo and setting a mood….capturing all the rich textures, colors and local flavor, rather than showcasing Cam and clothes. Which, made me stop and look at the pics for a change. I like.

    There’s a perfectly fine movie already called Priest (1994); why can’t Hollywood come up with original titles?

    Although, having said that, if they want to remake it and cast this guy as the piece of ass the priest hooks up with, I’d see it.

    My father takes pictures like this. He feels he has to get you from head to toe in every shot, plus as much background as possible, so finding us in our vacation photos was always like playing Where’s Waldo?

    He’s cute and I like the saturated colors, but I agree, the clothes are super-douchy at times and the shots with the girl aren’t helping.

    He was such a charmer in Burlesque. The harsh lighting of this photo shoot plus the douchey styling remove all the sweet charm, but his body looks good wearing those colorful clothes. He’s a pretty good model.

    That red shirt… are cowl-necked t-shirts coming in? I’m confused by it. I had a shirt like that in blue in ’80s (actually, it was a body suit), but none of my guy friends ever seemed to want to borrow it.

    My theory is that he’s so far away so that I can enjoy the lovely colours of those snaps in peace, without a random douche standing in the way. Hm.

    He’s nice to look at, and I’m getting used to the young-Sinatra-wannabe styling which is apparently in vogue these days (I have no problem with the look, just with how artificial it looks on most of ‘em.).

    I’d have liked to see the first suit and the jacket that he’s wearing in the last shot better. Otherwise, this is a mixed bag and the clothes I think I might like I mostly can’t see so well. The world does not need more bright green preppy shorts, though. At least in my estimation.

    this is a weird shoot — he tends to get lost in all of the colorful backgrounds. guess that was the point from the photog’s view, but it doesn’t show off the hot guy… he was also in the original Twilight movie and looked pretty hot there. he’s James, the vampire who stalks bella…
