Suave Boys at the Versace Menswear Show

Posted on June 21, 2011

Chace Crawford, Darren Criss, Ryan Kwanten and Zachary Quinto attended the Versace spring 2012 fashion show in Milan and – brace yourselves, poodles – WE HAVE NOT ONE CRITICAL THING TO SAY ABOUT ANY OF THEM. Crazy!

Okay, yes; hems. They’re problematic in some cases here. But we won’t dwell. They all look so sharp and put together. A lot of their cohorts, when they try to do the polished look, wind up looking like a trained circus animal in a performing suit or like they’re wearing underwear for the first time in years. These guys look polished, relaxed, and confident without looking douchey or like they’d rather be in board shorts and flip flops. We won’t shout out “WERQ!” to these testosterone-infused manly men, but — HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Oh, sorry. That was kind of rude.

Anyway, good jobs, bros. Pat each other on the back in a masculine, possibly sporting team-derived show of solidarity. Or you can just hold each other tightly as if you’re about to start a kick line, like you’re currently doing. Whatever looks dudely, buds.

      Criss’ hair looks a little over-producted, but aside from that, good show all around.

      Is Ryan Kwanten’s jacket supposed to be doing that?

      • Anonymous

        I was wondering that too…

      • http://visceralresponse.com Dina dV

        It’s doing that because he has his arms around the waists of the men on
        either side of him, and since both Criss and Quinto have their shoulders
        forward for the shot, to make their jackets lie flat, Kwanten had to
        push his back to accommodate. I’m sure if his arms were flat by his side it would look fine.

      Ryan needs to put his arms down so he’ll look even better.  LOVE the kickline comment!

      I don’t think it’s possible for Mr. Criss do do anything without looking douchey.

        I really don’t get it. When has he ever been a douche. Ever. He is the sweetest guy, and it’s really too bad that people say things like that with no basis to them.

        • Anonymous

          I agree! He always looks so sweet to me.  Seems like one of the nicest actors around, actually. Never douche-y.

        Agree with save_the_hobbit (LOVE YOUR NAME!). He seems so modest and seems genuinely humbled by his new fame! And I think he always looks absolutely adorable. I wonder if TLo saw that he’s wearing bright pink shots at the show – he had to show a little bit of his quirkiness! He was totally awesome 2 years ago before he made it big and he’s still totally awesome now! (Although he did say he’s “kind of a douchebag”… AVPS fans anyone??? :-D)

        • Anonymous

          Yeah I was gonna say, he’s only a douchebag when he’s Harry Potter. Like Jesse McCartney. Shia LaBeuf…King of the Douche. I love fellow Starked fans :D

          • Jessica O’Connell

            So true. I mean, playing Disney songs when everyone’s trying to hang out? Who does that?

            Me too. And love finding them in random places like here at TLo!

      They all look very nice but ZQ?  OH, ZQ could do dirty, dirty things to me.  Anytime.  He looks super fine…….

      Ryan’s bone structure is just plain ridiculous.

      Aww they are cute.

    • Shannon Chromiak

      They all look so sharp that unfortunately by comparison Darren Criss looks like he’s graduating college and his parents are taking him out to a fancy dinner afterwards.

      • lilibetp

        College?  Try Junior High.

      They do look good but frankly I am weary of the constant 5 o’clock shadow look. It works for some. I think it makes Darren look unshowered. Maybe just his face but still.

    • http://twitter.com/AleksandrJohn Alexander Cavaluzzo

      At least 50% of those men are gay. Possibly 75%. But that has nothing to do with fashion. (Or does it?)

    • MilaXX

      I’d agree except Darren had to douche it up with those stupid pink socks. (clearly seen in the first pic of the previous post) Not sure why it bugs me, but it does. Otherwise good job for all involved.

      • http://www.facebook.com/mary.nease Mary Nease

        Aw, but that’s his thing! Come on, how cute is it to see a glimpse of rainbow socks on the red carpet or a flash of pink at a stuffy fashion show?

      • http://moodring54.livejournal.com/ moodring54

        Colorful socks make him a douche? My only complaint here is the lack of color. The spots of blue are nice and save them from looking dour, but boys! It’s summer!

      • Anonymous

        Ack! I LOVE the pink socks. Of course, I always have really colorful socks on because they make me happy. And thus, I find Darren Criss endearing. It’s the little things.

        Unrelated: Dear Zachary Quinto, Marry me.

        • MilaXX

          I just think there is a time and place for that bit of quirkiness. Kid’s Choice Awards, MTV movies awards, or even when they aren’t being dressed by stylist, sure. This is a grown up event and he should have left the socks at home.

      They look presentable and handsome.  Ryan Kwanzaa’s little beard still screams “douchebag” to me, but other than that, you’re right, they’re looking
      pretty sharp.

    • Annie Leung

      hehe not even a comment about Darren’s pink sock? Bravo fellas!

    • Rand Ortega

      Like being @ the counter of 31 Flavors. Yum!

      I dunno, guys… Chace Crawford will never not look like a douche to me, but that’s just a personal prejudice (dammit, shave already! You just look sloppy with that scruff when your hair is shellacked to within an inch of its life). It kind of amuses me to see how large Zachary Quinto appears in proportion to the others- Darren and Ryan look rather wee next to him. Mmmm, Spock.

      • lilibetp

        I know!  They look like pipsqueaks next to ZQ!

      • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.parker Sara Parker

        I don’t think that’s just personal prejudice, that’s a pretty douchey expression he’s sporting in these photos.

        • http://moodring54.livejournal.com/ moodring54

          He looks like a Wall Street trust fund baby.

      Aw, that darren criss! He gets Best Hems out of the four. His suit appears to be a subtle pinstripe? Or textured? VERY nice, myoung man. Well done.  And I love the blue shirt with dark suit – More personality than plain white, not quite as mafia as the black shirt. Also, Darren Criss is the only one of these four that I find at all attractive. Not sure about Quinto’s suit at all. But the fit is right, all four of these boys bathed and cleaned up and got their clothing from the dry cleaners and then didn’t crumple it up for a week before putting it on – bravo. I mean bravo in the butchest possible sense, whatever that is. (what’s the super-dude way of say bravo? is it just a kind of wordless grunt?)

    • http://visceralresponse.com Dina dV

      It’s nice to know that somehow Kwanten managed to look as good in clothes as he normally does naked. 

      But Quinto’s hair looks like a Legoman’s hair.  I wonder if he has a nob on the top of his head where he attaches the different styles.

    • Anonymous

      Kwanten should not pose like that.  His jacket pulled really unattractively.

      Yum! All of them! And definitely, Darren’s received some very welcome advice. Waaay to go, dears!

      So it’s true…. they look good in the suits.  But it has to be said that their choice of suiting paired with very simple colors and patterns is actually really “safe” and actually kind of boring.  I see men in the business district of LA wear this quite often…. as well as at my local bank behind the teller booth.

      Darren needs to de-product his hair and 3 of them (the 3 that can’t grow decent facial hair) need to shave…otherwise, the suits look good!

      I know I’m too old for them but they just do NOTHING for me, and I hate shiny blue clothing. Their feet look sharp though.

      Pfft. Again with the niceness. Well, if you guys can’t bitch, please let me attempt to inject a little more into the proceedings: Darren Whatsisface looks greasy, and the stripes on both suit and tie scream banker. Blondie’s jacket either doesn’t fit at all or he needs more posing lessons, but either way it’s a bad look – as though a Superman logo is about to burst free from his chest. Zachary’s hem issues aside, also hate the quiff and the black on black. Even John Travolta has eased up on that a bit. And Chace’s jacket looks too large and his hair too douchey. There you go! I found something critical to say about ALL of them. Whoop.

      They’re at a fashion show, dressed very expensively, and e v e r y o n e of them needs a shave.

      Agree – they look good.  Not great, but good.  Chace puts me to sleep though – in pictures and in his acting.  But, Matt Morrison seems to like it…cough, cough…

      Grey Suit on the right looks Gangster/Douchey to me.  I can’t believe you are giving the shiny suit/black shirt & tie combo a pass.  You are running on fumes today, aren’t you?
