In or Out: Zac Efron

Posted on December 08, 2011

We got a little cranky with Zac the other day and took out on him our frustration with a bunch of other slobs on the red carpet. Minions called us on it and told us we were being unfair and that he actually looked good. What the hell; we’ll give him a second chance. Never let it be said we don’t listen, kittens.

Zac Efron attends the premiere of “New Year’s Eve” at the Ziegfeld Theatre in NYC.

It’s a nice enough suit. Not really setting us on fire. It’s kind of hard to tell the color, since it’s light blue in one picture, grey in another, and then a bluish grey in the third. We’re going to go out on a limb and say that it’s somewhere in the blue-grey family. This is a bit of our problem lately with guys on the RC. They’re busting out these suits that have a seriously business-y feel to them. It’s not that you can’t ever wear a grey or blue suit outside of a business setting, but for a red carpet, especially for a big, glossy, holiday movie like this, you should try and sparkle things up somehow, y’know? Nice tie, but anything that would be appropriate for a job interview probably shouldn’t be deployed for a movie premiere. Even the scarf, which isn’t a bad touch, seems a little pedestrian. Nice enough, but we’re pretty sure you could get something a lot nicer than that lent to you, Zac. We could walk into Marshall’s right now and buy a scarf that looks just like that. And finally, we’re pretty sure Zac can afford a better pair of shoes than that. Those aren’t the currently trendy “artfully distressed” shoes you see a lot on the RC; those are just a shitty, beat up pair of shoes.

There. We gave him a second chance.

IN! Damn, T Lo! Lighten the hell up!


OUT! You’re so right, T Lo! I originally thought he looked pretty good, but with your guidance, I realized he looks like CRAP!

    Sorry, I still think you’re being too hard on the young man.  For one thing, let’s look at his peers — style guidance is woefully lacking among these gentlemen. 

    Plus, he’s wanting to seem more adult, and I’m guessing he thought the businesslike approach would serve him well there — something stylish and flashy would make him seem young.

      Exactly.  We’re talking about a population that can’t figure out how to pick out a suit that fits.  Plus I think the colors bring out his eyes without being matchy, which actually takes a tiny bit of skill to do.  IN for me, too.

    Is he wearing a suit, or a sportscoat and slacks?  Because the the coat and the pants don’t seem to match in the first picture.

    IN. The shoes are boring and need a good shine, but otherwise he looks really good and put-together here. A contrasting or more interesting tie would have also been an improvement.

    I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen a scarf paired with a suit-jacket in that way, but it adds some interest without looking too affected.

    I do love his scarf and his eyes are gorgeous. He could try to smile.

    Suit is meh and doesn’t deserve more comment.

  • BerlinerNYC

    He was on Live with Kelly the other morning, and I was clutching my pearls: apparently he’s friends with the guy who played Lt. Dangle (of the notorious short-shorts) on Reno 911. Zac needed a costume for a Halloween party, so he just called up the guy and asked if he still had the costume and if he could borrow it, and he said sure. The outfit alone is funny, but the fact that he casually called up another man to borrow his booty shorts gives me the vapors. Now there’s some fashion (and T-Lo can’t accuse him of having his pants hemmed too long).

    I neither like nor dislike him. If I’d never heard of him before and I saw these photos, I’d probably say he looked all right, if not mind-blowing. Given that half the young male actors in his position would have shown up in jeans and an undershirt, I think that’s enough for an IN.

    I think he looks fine, although I agree that the outfit is rather “business-y.”  Kudos to him for showing up in a suit instead of the jeans and a tee shirt that seems to be the trend for young male stars.  I’ll give him an in (not an IN, though).

    I say IN–he’s awfully cute, his eyes are gorgeous and–except for his shoes–he looks pretty good.  PLUS, he just gave 300 pieces of his clothing to a local non-profit (he went to high school locally)–so maybe he’s trying to rebuild his wardrobe and didn’t have anything sparkly available.

So, Out. Sadly. Speaking of sad… Would it kill him to smile?

    Yeah, I’m saying IN. It’s perfectly all right.

    My style knowledge for guys is antiquated, but I’d say his jacket is too tightly fitted to wear with a scarf underneath (thus the hand over the chest).

    See, I’m getting the sense that it’s one of those fabrics that changes color depending on the angle – I forget the name – aha! Wikipedia perusal tells me the term I am looking for is “shot silk.” Generally, the idea of a suit in such a fabric would make me gag, but the neutral tones in its application here, if I’m identifying it correctly, make it look more classy than eurotrash. If that is indeed the case, I would say it is appropriately festive and should be considered IN!

    In.  I think you’re being unduly harsh here.  I know that grading on a curve is not always popular, but I agree with others here that suggest you employ it here.  Not only does he look better than the next ten men you’d see on the street, he looks better than A LOT of the men you see on the red carpet.

    Also – Why can’t “banker” be a look?  We went through a “secretary” phase with the gals…? (And that *shudders* “trucker” phase.)

    out,  for the shoes alone,  the least a guy can do is have a decent pair of shoes on. Totally not into the “distressed” shoe look with suites.

    I think he looks kind of adorable. No complaints.

    Then again, I can forgive a lot when a guy has a pair of amazing, sparkly, crystal-blue eyes like that. :)

    I want to give him an OUT just for the stupid hand on his chest.

    He always gives me a better version of Ryan Seacrest vibe. And I don’t mean that in a good way.

    I’m a fan, but I have no strong feelings on this outfit. His eyes are gorgeous but that’s not his doing. So I’m going to give him an OUT for the skeevy stubble. Shave, Zac.

    Totally IN.  I think he actually took a risk with the two-tone suit.  Nice!

    The color of the suit is really throwing me off, but you can’t deny that he looks good. In

    Little things add up to make an out.  If this was Man on the Street, it’d be pretty snazzy.  But this isn’t on the street, it on the red carpet.

    TLo, you’re just jealous he can make a blue business suit, old shoes and a lame scarf look drop dead sexy. Even the hem on his pants is the proper length!  IN.
