Pairs Division (Sort of): Smith and Lowe

Posted on August 24, 2011

This is the second time we’ve featured “Doctor Who” star Matt Smith in less-than-fabulous surroundings, but there’s a reason for that. The boy has a fantastic casual personal style.

Matt Smith and Daisy Lowe attend the V music festival in England. Matt Smith wears “doll face” t-shirt by Christopher Kane from his spring 2010 collection.



Christopher Kane “Doll Face” Tee

We have no category for posts like this. It’s obviously not a formal enough event to rate these looks as if they were on a red carpet (although they clearly dressed with the knowledge that pictures would be taken), and they’re not technically “On the Street,” so those posts are out. We just think they’re one chic-as-hell couple and we love their looks here. Maybe not enough to shout out a “WERQ it, Doctor + Companion!” (because WERQs are normally reserved for looks with more effort behind them); just a nod and a “Well done” for looking chic in cutoffs and t-shirts, standing in a field somewhere.  No scoring necessary.

      I don’t get it. He just looks like some guy my little brother used to do live action role playing with. Slap on some face paint and he’s a dark elf.

          It never ceases to amaze us how quickly readers will say nasty things about the looks of male celebrities but we get accused of causing anorexia in girls if we say Christina Hendricks’ pants aren’t flattering.

            Given the zillions of inequities trending the other way, we men can probably afford to take one on the wardrobe/looks front.  We still make more money!

            the poster just said it looks like man-boobs (it could be the shirt and the print/shading) – I don’t really see them. 
            to be fair, there are plenty of remarks about vein-y arms and legs, people calling SJP horsey, and CH and the like - a lot of the busty gals have compared how she dresses to how they dress.   

            Seriously have people REALLY claimed TLo “cause anorexia”  – loony

            • http://www.tomandorenzo.com Tom and Lorenzo

              The poster said “He has man-boobs.” Go one post over to January Jones, comment that she has a big ass (which is as accurate as saying Matt Smith has man boobs) and see what happens.

              And when people went off about SJPs veiny hands and horsey face, we shut them down and told them to stop it. There’s a tendency in internet commenting to think it’s okay to make fun of the looks of skinny women or any men, but a woman over a size 2 is sacred.

              And yes, we’ve been told more than once that we’re the reason young girls have eating disorders. There’s a reason we almost never feature any woman over a size 4 on this site anymore. The outrage and accusations every time weren’t worth it.

              I, too, have noticed the the “she’s/he’s too skinny, must have an eating disorder” type comments are way more prevalent than the “she/he really should lose some weight” comments on this site, as well as the internet in general.  Obviously there are more overweight than underweight  people in this country today, so perhaps this explains it…..people are more uncomfortable criticizing something they see in themselves.  

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              I think some of it may be the thought that people who are overweight (truly overweight in an unhealthy way) understand the health risks, while underweight people aren’t told.  So those who comment out of true concern (which I like to believe are the majority) feel like they need to say it more.

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              Now, I know celebrities quake in fear of a bad review from you guys, but I don’t know how many teenage girls read this site, so how could you cause their eating disorders?  That’s simply illogical. 

              On a more serious note, I read every post here.  Every single one, even about shows I don’t watch and people I can’t stand.  And 85% of the time, I read the comments too.  NOT ONCE, have I seen you guys comment in an unkind way about someone’s body, whether in the body of an article or in the comments section. 

              As for the “Christina’s pants are unflattering” comments, that’s absurd and always has been.  You have often said that Hendricks’ garments don’t flatter (because they don’t) but you’ve also commended her when they do.  And you often feature Amber Riley with very kind things to say about her wardrobe choices.  You’ll do posts about JLo without any complaint about how a certain outfit makes her ass look more prominent, because everyone knows that’s one of her goals in getting dressed, and you don’t have an issue with it.  Anyone who believes you two are sizist clearly doesn’t come here often.  Which does cause me to wonder what Google search led them here…”innocuous blog posts I can project my issues onto so I can be insulting and rude”? 

              For another thing, all those men and women who are so concerned about women above a size 2 should recognize that it’s about time someone called out designers on the fact that clothing above a size 8 (or god forbid, plus size) is awful.  Not because of the bodies in it, or because it’s impossible to make clothes that look good at those sizes, but because they don’t want to dress that women.  Just once, when MK asks “who is this girl and  where is she going?” I want to hear, “This girl is a beautiful size 16.”  As a woman who has had more than enough weight problems herself — I had to lose almost 50 lbs to make it to merely overweight instead of obese — I’ve always appreciate your acknowledgment of the difficulties in dressing a non-model body, precisely because it is always about the clothes, never the body.  It’s never that it’s hard to dress a body like Hendricks because she’s fat, it’s always that it’s hard because the clothes that flatter are few and far between.

              I couldn’t have said it any better myself!  I have always loved the fact that TLo is all about the clothes, the occasion, and the styling.  And I really appreciate the posts on any and everybody, no matter what size they are.

            • Anonymous

              Yes! I agree. One of the reasons I like this site is that the criticism is about the clothes not the body of the person wearing them. Another is that the rabidly mean are not accepted here and their posts are taken away. Let’s face it some people like the internet because they can say anything they want without any social conscience filtering. Most of the people who comment on this site have filters. I like that.

            • Anonymous

              The SJP hands thing.  By the time I went to comment y’all had removed all the posts about her hands and said you weren’t having any of it, so I didn’t comment on it.  Now, I’ve never found SJP to be attractive, but I think she’s probably a genuinely nice and lovely woman.  Not everyone has to be smokin’ hot to be a good actress and certainly not to be a decent human being.  I suspect that in person where you get to interact and feel the presence of her personality she’s probably quite attractive.  But I would have commented on her hands, not to ridicule them but because I was genuinely concerned that she might have a medical issue.  Some form of debilitating arthritis or a vascular condition.  I hope that’s not the case, I hope she’s in good health.

              I sometimes say that a model needs a sandwich or a basket of sandwiches.  This isn’t meant to poke fun, it’s meant to express how frighteningly skinny they are.  When your ankles are larger than the top of your thighs and you can see every rib through the garment that’s not a natural svelteness.  People that encourage, nay! demand, this, like Uncle Karl, should be ashamed of themselves.

              I think there are many folks, and I include myself in this since I’m a big gal, who will get defensive about someone who isn’t thin.  I don’t get offended when someone points out that Christina Hendricks can’t dress herself to save her neck, but I think there is a knee-jerk defensiveness that comes from some quarters because they instantly feel that any criticism of a big gal’s dressing habits is a criticism about being a big gal.  It’s totally misplaced, but as I say I can understand it.

              I know that sometimes my sense of humor comes off as sarcasm instead of wit, and I’m okay with that.  Nevertheless, I will try to be more mindful of what I say.  I wouldn’t want to hurt someone needlessly just to crack a half-assed joke.  And let’s face it, all my jokes are half-assed.

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              I can understand that because there is often a certain amount of concern with public figures.  And some of them do have eating disorders, I have no doubt of it.

              But while in a lot of cases, these women are not healthy at that weight, for some of them it is just a natural condition.  A couple girls I went to high school with presented many of the signs of eating disorders — prominent bones, extreme paleness, significant dark circles under the eyes, thin hair.  But neither of them EVER displayed any other signs, and I saw them both eat substantial meals — often many in a row, and was with them for hours after, so I know they weren’t purging.  Could they have been doing so (not eating or binging/purging) at other times?  Certainly, as I wasn’t with them all the time.  But if they had eating disorders, they had more control over them than anyone I’ve ever met because they could stop for long periods of time. 

              A great many of the models that one sees with those signs for concern are still in their teens.  A lot of girls go through a very awkward, absurdly skinny phase at that time.  If a celebrity is presenting psychological symptoms of an eating disorder, or if they suddenly are thin to the point of gauntness, that’s worrying.  But a runway model you’ve never heard of before?  There’s simply no way to tell.

              I’ve struggled with my weight a lot, so I understand what you’re saying about the defensiveness.  But the girls I mentioned earlier took just as much crap and bullying about their weights as I did.  I think we have to be very careful when expressing those kind of concerns to make sure that it’s clearly CONCERN and not an attempt to poke fun at a socially acceptable target. 

              Though, believe me, I do understand the urge!  In fact, I keep saying I want to go on PR just so I can bitch through all of the non “real woman” challenges (because models are fake women?)  about how I don’t know how to dress a size 2 tall.

            • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

              I think it’s a damn shame that internet outrage can shut down conversation about style for all sizes.  Women over size 4 love fashion too!  We face enough challenges just sourcing non sample size clothing that reducing opportunities to see larger bodies styled well is just discouraging.  Not to mention we lose out on some great examples of what not to do! 

              I’ve always found the discussions here intelligent and really appreciated the comment moderation on the SJP/body snarking threads.  It’s unfortunate that in return for providing such an amazing resource you get nothing but grief.  We’re not here to mock people’s bodies, we’re here to mock unfortunate reality shows…  and talk about clothes.  Isn’t that more fun anyway?

            • http://profiles.google.com/angela.is.pretentious Angela Rodriguez

              I always found your posts on over size 4 women great. It’s the same conversation just for a different body type which is exactly what it should be. If the clothes are baffling and ill fitting, it must be addressed! 

              Alas.. haters gonna hate. 

              This site is amazing, the insight is amazing, and I’ll willingly read and fawn over anything you put out into the internet world.

              It’s a real shame some people have forced you away from featuring women over a size 4.  As a woman over a size 4 myself I’ve taken your advice to those celebs and applied it to my own style many times.  I miss it.

            • Anonymous

              What I like is that TLo have always stuck to criticizing the fashions, not the people. They never judge people for body issues, no matter how veiny or heavy or skinny or man-booby they may be.  As you point out, it’s commenters who do that, but I think there’s some of each: some people do say nasty things about women (“Visible veins – off with her feet!”), and others do what TLo said, above (“What do you mean those shoes are cute? You must really hate women!”)

          Man-boobs? What picture are you looking at!?

      • http://wipgirl.wordpress.com/ kristel

        I think that’s true of a lot of famous people – if you could subtract whatever you know/have seen of them from your brain, and just saw a picture of them walking up the street, you’d wonder why on earth anyone was bothering to take pictures. (I think that’s probably true more of famous men than women, but I wouldn’t say it’s exclusively true. Take away all the clothes and stylists and you’d be left with a lot of people who everyone thought were hot in high school, but, you know… high school hot, not famous person hot.) 

        • http://onebluetree.blogspot.com/ Sara L.

          Actually, I found, after seeing some famous tv celebrities at a convention, famous people IRL are definitely hotter than regular folks. Pictures don’t tell the story. I remember feeling a bit blinded when I saw Jewel Staite (from Firefly) and realized she was probably the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. Then I saw Marina Sirtis. Then Tricia Helfer. Then I walked back to my hotel room and cried.  Ok, not really, but I’m telling you, celebrities are really really pretty. Really.

          • Anonymous

            That’s true in my (limited) experience. Not everyone who’s famous so much as people who are celebrities in part because of their looks (whether their other claim to fame is acting/music/whatever).  In real life, I think people are often more attractive than they photograph because of their manner, facial expressions or how they move. With the celebs I’ve seen in ‘real life’ – e.g. not working or at a public appearance – there’s usually also something else. Bone structure or an indefinable glow? Charisma? I don’t know.

            Now the (much larger) number of people I’ve met who are well known not for beauty but for their smarts, or musical talent, political savvy or business success, etc. often are surprisingly unimpressive, even scruffy.

      I just wish he’d have left the neckline on the shirt alone, but it’s not like he’s on the red carpet. Other than that he looks fine, esp. considering the venue. Keep rocking the skinny jeans Matt.

      He’s fabulous. I loved him from the first three seconds of his on-screen Doctor-hood. Such a feat since I was (and remain) a Tennant fangirl of the first order. She’s darling, too.

        ^THIS!! I’m loyal to DT (Allons-y!) but I’d jump in the blue box with Matt Smith any day. He’s so fun! I love his style.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        Agreed.  I was pretty much on board when his face popped up from the bottom of the crashed Tardis but he really had me when he said “You’re Scottish, fry something.”

          Yeah, that was one of my favorite moments from his first episode as well.  And I’m loving his redheaded Scottish companion:)

        Heh.  I was ready for Tennant to go by the time he left but I wasn’t sure about Matt Smith, until watching him with little Amelia trying to figure out what foods he likes.  Moffat’s done such a great job with this entire reboot. Smith and Gillan have a great vibe between them and Arthur Darvill as Rory is just the loveliest character ever created on Doctor Who.  Just the way he said “I’m a nurse,” after “Sexy” died in his arms said everything you need to know about Rory.

        • Anonymous

          Agreed!  The food scene is what sold him to me, plus the fact that he has kept just enough of Tennant’s little tics to make the transition believable.

          I stumbled on a Tennant episode on PBS the other day, and was really shocked at how different the two doctors are, and how I can still love them both.

      Hmmm. I love his shirt, and he looks good though there’s too much collarbone showing for my taste. She looks sloppy and not well-bathed.

      I think he looks pretty good, they way non-American men look good when they dress in that androgynous way.  If he hit on me in a bar, I would turn him down, but I wouldn’t hesitate to go shopping with him. 

      I can’t believe TLo didn’t have anything to say about the other half of the pair.  Hello, 1993!

      They both look adorbs…and, when you compare these shots to shots of trendy young actors werking it at Coachella earlier this year, The Whovillians win the fashion stakes, hands down. Casual yet fashionable.

      He’s a twig…no moobs there, and even if he did, so what? A snarky comment like that indicates you’re not a Matt Smith fan, so why waste your breath being so “See Ya Next Tuesday?”

      I want that t-shirt.

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

        And they both look so very “rock” which is a lot of what makes it so much better than the celebs at Coachella.  Don’t show up at a music festival dressed in a way that the real fans want to throw beer at you.  Just don’t.

        You did not just call her a cunt, did you? Oh yes. Yes you did. That seems more than a bit too far.

          Man, when I switched to see the preceding comment, the one I saw was mine, and I’m going “I know I didn’t call someone a cunt, I’d remember that!” 

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      I just had a quick look around to see how much the shirt – that the lovely Matt Smith has cut the neck out of – costs ($290 btw) and it seems to be called simply “Doll”, “Doll Face” is slightly different: http://www.highsnobiety.com/news/2010/03/01/christopher-kane-doll-face-t-shirt/  - in case you wanted to make a wee correction.

      Thanks for keeping the Whovian fangirls satisfied TLo – I’ll be able to watch Saturday’s return in HiDef once our DirecTV gets set up tomorrow – woohoo!

      • Anonymous

        Eclectic, I see what you mean about “Doll Face”, brrr, it’s got kind of a *Chucky* vibe to it…

        And woohoo indeed for the Saturday return! BBCA has also been showing a couple of new specials, on the best monsters and companions.

      Not getting it here….that neckline on his shirt is silly and she looks a mess….that’s fashion….?  I guess so. I do however, covet his hair.  

    • http://visceralresponse.com Dina dV

      I normally love Smith’s personal style, and won’t take away too much from this since he’s at a music festival, but I agree with everyone that the neckline is too big.  Great shoulders and collarbone go a long way to making it not so bad…but before the scrolldown I feared he might be wearing a caftan.  (I don’t want to give him any ideas…but I could so see him trying it, at least once.) So I was happy to see it was just a t-shirt and skinny jeans.

      She’s lovely and I don’t mind her punk/glam style I just wish she’d comb her hair. You’d think having a boyfriend with that head of hair might inspire her to comb her own every now and then, but her hair always looks a mess.

      Squee – totally love both of them.  Always fun to see what they’ve come up with and they actually seem to have personal style as opposed to a stylist’s style.

    • Anonymous

      I get that his style is very daring (for a guy) and of the moment and whatnot, but damn. The more I see of him dressing himself, the further he falls off the list of celebrities I think it’d be cool to meet. People who are that committed to the “makes me look bad/slovenly/like I don’t care about my clothes but I can totally get away with it because it’s so on trend/I’m so hot anyway” look just make me tired and annoyed. *sigh*

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

        I get where you’re coming from, because there are a lot of posers in the world of celebs who are like that.  (Brad Pitt, I’m thinking of you.) I don’t think that’s the story with Smith, though.  I don’t think he’d give a damn if it was on trend or not, honestly.

        • Anonymous

          I never got a poseur vibe from Smith. He seems too comfortable with his style to be a poseur.

      Nice, though if we *were* scoring, I’d rate her higher than him. Like her shirt, while I have an irrational mild dislike of over-sized necks on men’s t-shirts. (Whereas I have an irrational strong dislike of deep v-neck t-shirts). It just looks affected. Exceptions made for those actually at a rehearsal or who are obviously serious-dancer-lithe. Too bad he cut out the shirt’s natural neck.

        The Fug Girls already have “Well Played.” We need to come up with a new category name for TLo (although they are quite capable on their own, of course).

          Or they could just label all Matt Smith posts “Matt Smith” — it needs no further title.

      I’ve always liked Matt’s hipsterpunk look, he is a young guy and knows how to do it right.

      Meh. He doesn’t do anything for me. I like the colors of the tshirt, but I really dislike that sloppy neckline. The skinny hipster look is just not my thing. However, just because it doesn’t appeal to me doesn’t mean that he doesn’t know what he’s doing–his outfits always look very well-thought out and deliberate. He clearly dresses with intention.

      *squint* It’s jeans and a baggy t-shirt. I guarantee if I went out in this outfit no-one would be taking pictures of me.

      Maybe I’m just burned because I was just linked to one of those casual style sartoralist-esque blogs for my hometown and everything was basically “skinny person in jeans, tee, and sunglasses” and I was like, no matter how awesome I look on a daily basis this blog will never take my picture, what’s up with that? But I wish we wouldn’t pretend that skinny jeans and baggy tee aren’t the easiest decision any slim person makes when they get up in the morning.

      Really?  I so don’t get his appeal.  IMHO, guys that skinny need to have a collared shirt to add some interest and perhaps a size smaller.  all that loose fabric and exposed clavicle just makes him look like I could snap him like twig.  He has great hair and a really handsome face, he just dresses way to “skateboarder chic” for a man his age.
      I love her top, never a fan of the “Daisy Dukes”.

        Ok, I just scrolled down and am now TERRIFIED that I am going to be a “villian” for stating I don’t find him appealing so let me just clarify.  While being a handsome man to many people, he is not a man that I am attracted to.  Nor do I personally care for his personal wardrobe styling.  Please tell me that is ok to say and not considered “snarky”, it’s just a personal opinion and is not to be taken as a reflection as to he is as a person.  I don’t know him, I can’t speak to his person.  I hope we can all find a way to share or opinions about the fashions and style in a manner that doesn’t get out of hand or labelled “mean” or “snarky”.  Isn’t viewing and commenting on the fashions the whole purpose of the blog?

          I don’t think you’re snarky at all!  Maybe because I somewhat agree with you . . . I find his casual style to be a little too Morrisey for my liking.  I don’t know if I’ve ever seen him in a tee that didn’t have the neck ripped out?  Not a huge fan of that at all.
