WERQ: Daniel Radcliffe in Antonio Azzuolo

Posted on January 25, 2012

We don’t normally give the “WERQ it!” shoutouts to boys, but we really must insist this time.


Daniel Radcliffe attends the world premiere of “The Woman In Black” in London in an Antonio Azzuolo suit. Tie and pocket square by The Tie Bar and shoes by Grenson.

Pretty damn close to flawless (although the neck tie is oddly sloppy). He has exactly the build for double-breasted: slim and small-shouldered. This is why Prince William always looks so bad in his double-breasted tuxes; because he’s tall and broad-shouldered. It does look to us like the jacket’s just a little short on him, but we really can’t complain when the overall look works so well.  We love the polka dot tie paired with the plaid pocket square; someone knew what they were doing when they paired those two. Throw in a freshly shaved face and a coif without a hair out of place, and you’ve earned yourself a “You WERQ that elegant shit, boy!”

      I love Daniel Radcliffe, and have to say, that boy (man now, I guess) sure knows how to dress. I’ve always liked his style, even when he went for his self-proclaimed campy looks. Well done!

      Daniel Radcliffe has never really made my kettle whistle (that kid who played Oliver Wood, on the other hand), but his clothes look fabulous here. Love the complementary patterns in the pocket square and tie and boy, that is YOUR suit!

        Agree with you entirely on the kid who played Wood. And would you believe that actor’s name is actually Sean Biggerstaff? Seriously! (Who are you calling immature?)

        • Anonymous

          I remember the entirety of my 8th- or 9th-grade class (can’t remember) sniggering over that endlessly. WOOD! BIGGERSTAFF! HAHAHAHAHAHA but seriously, you guys, sexy. HAHAHA!

          Ah, girls’ school memories.

          I thought I was the only one to notice Sean Biggerstaff until I brought him up in a group of mixed friends. The gay guys and straight gals knew who I meant. ;-) I was young enough to not feel dirty lusting after him…fast forward to Azkaban when I was too old to find the 15-year old hot.

        Thank God, I’m not the only person who remembered Oliver Wood and his sexy accent…

            My daughter watched some Harry Potter movies with friends recently and being typical 12 yo girls, they were all deciding who their Harry Potter universe boyfriends would be. My daughter decided on Neville, but with this caveat, “Not the young Neville, but the older, teenager Neville.” LOL

        I have mixed feelings about Dan in that movie. I was like 14 when it came out, so it was perfectly acceptable for me to lust after Dan then, but now I’m 21 and I still think he was at his hottest then. I mean he’s hot now, but he was even hotter to my 14 year old self in PoA.

      I’ve had a crush on him ever since I saw him in “How to Succeed…” last year. He’s so cute, and such a shayna punim! And he’s a remarkably good song and dance man. Not Hugh Jackman, but very good.

      Anyway, he looks great here. I’m going to show this one to my teenage sons and hope they take some sartorial hints.

        I like that he’s really challenged himself, first with Equus, then with How to Succeed, now with that creepy horror movie thing that I just can’t bring myself to see, no matter how much I like DR.

          He reminds me a lot of Matt Damon when he was younger — not in looks at all, but in choices.  Both went for roles that would help them as actors rather than as celebrities.

          THIS! I’ve seen many-a-broadway show be KILLED by gimmicky tv/movie-star casting.  (I saw Melanie Griffith FALL on a cartwheel playing Roxy in one of the most UNINSPIRED performances of Chicago ever!) I was so pleasantly surprised to see how talented, energetic, and HAPPY to be there he was.  I was expecting mediocrity, and while I wasn’t BLOWN away, I was just grinning the whole time. You can tell he really wants to do it right, and be accepted as a legitimate member of the broadway community.  I don’t think he deserved to win a Tony, but he was definitely gipped for a nomination (John Laroquette was funny & very well suited for the role, but the Biggley doesn’t require nearly the amount of talent & energy as Pierpont..)
          I totally want to adopt Dan as my long-lost British cousin. I don’t have any crush, I just want to hang out and be a geek with him :)

      He really knows how to dress, doesn’t he? Let’s hear it for the British!

      On a side note, I really think the world of Daniel Radcliffe. I’m a massive fan of the Harry Potter books but find the movies to be pretty dreadful and never thought much of him. I did find his off-screen behavior to be quite charming (he’s very kind to young fans, supports great causes, and it’s remarkable that he and the other young cast aren’t injecting heroin into every orifice) but he won me over when I saw How to Succeed… He was marvelous and really engaging, knew how to work a live audience. I wish him every bit of success.

        Although I don’t think any of the flaws in the movies can be attributed to him — he did a good job playing the movie character, even if that differed from the book one quite a bit :)

          Agreed, no flaws in the movies can be attributed to him, but at the same token I don’t think he was particularly good either. I found him to be bland and thought a few of the other young actors regularly outdid him. It wasn’t until I witnessed his work firsthand that I had any feeling other than warm ambivalence.

          He also did really well on SNL last week, very talented young man.

      Not quite a WERQ from me. The jacket is at least an inch too short, and that’s TOO MUCH. Maybe lower-case werq for everything else.

      I actually think short men shouldn’t wear double-breasted jackets, but as you said, he’s slim and small-shouldered so he’s an exception. He does look pretty great here and his eyes are all kinds of gorgeous. The polka dot tie made me smile. WERQ!

      Lookit little Harry Potter shutting it down! Love the contrasting tie & pocket square. And the jacket buttons. Most importantly, he doesn’t appear too self conscious, a la Ryan Gosling.

    • Terence Ng

      Is anyone who isn’t slim and small shouldered going to look WERQ in a suit? It’s silly, but it seems that if even the hottest muscular guys have trouble looking anything but boxy, anyone who ‘s less than a muscle god in the same, terrible boat.

      So good for Daniel. Lucky bastard.

      (ps I totally love you.)

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

        Yes.  In fact, a broad shouldered man can look AMAZING in a properly cut and tailored suit.  The big problem many of them have is the neck is too short and broad, but there are some very fine looking men in suits who are by no means small. 

        Examples: Micheal Jordan in his heyday and Denzel Washington ever. Neither is narrow-shouldered (though not exactly linebacker proportions either)

      yes, the jacket does appear to be a little short. However, I think if it where the proper length, he might look a little lost in it.

      Pay attention Hutcherson.  This is how you do red carpet premieres.  I wouldn’t recommend the double-breasted suit for your build, but take notes otherwise!

      He is going to be incredibly handsome when he hits his 30-40s. He’s got that jaunty dashing quality about him that reminds me of the WWII era movie stars, kind of like Robert Mitchum or Gregory Peck. I’m really looking forward to seeing him in mature acting roles.

      • Anonymous

        I was just thinking the same thing.  A few smart role choices, maybe a messy romance in there, some character wrinkles…he could be quite sexy.  Of course, it’ll take a decade for me to get those HP glasses out of my head.

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

          He needs to consciously work on building himself in the Cary Grant/Gregory Peck mold… it’ll suit him better than the unkempt look of his contemporaries.

      Are there two different colors of buttons on the jacket (top pair vs. bottom pair) or is it just a trick of the light?

    • http://twitter.com/RockShrimp Willow

      My biggest regret from DR’s stint in How to Succeed is that he never noticed that I’m the only person on earth shorter than he is and fell in love with me. Stupid girlfriend. ;)

      Agree on the WERQ, showing those other young Hollywood males how to bring it to the red carpet.  So refreshing to see a man who doesn’t look like they rolled out of bed onto the red carpet in someone else’s suit.

      it sounds so silly, but i am so PROUD of him.  he seems like such a darling young man and thankfully has managed to grow up in the spotlight without making any serious missteps.  it’s a credit to his family/upbringing.  

      all that aside, he looks great.  those eyes!

        Apparently when casting the first Harry Potter movies, director Chris Columbus made it a point specifically to interview/vet the parents of the three lead actors.  He had previously directed Home Alone, and wanted to avoid anybody who even remotely reminded him of the Culkin parents. 

        All that to say, yes, DR’s parents deserve a lot of credit and so does he.  He seems to have a fantastic attitude, and has ever since the earliest interviews I can recall seeing with him.  There was one interview he did not long before turning 16, either on Regis & Kelly or on Conan O’Brien, where he talked about how he wanted a big red Cadillac convertible as his first car. When the host pointed out how funny it would be to see “Harry Potter” driving around in that kind of car, Radcliffe not only took it well but seemed to find it hilarious himself. That’s the moment which pretty much endeared me for life.

        I know what you mean. The three Harry Potter leads seem to have grown up into nice adults. I feel like a proud aunt seeing how well they have done! If any of them have been murdering hookers in their spare time they are doing it very discreetly.

      I agree with everything TLo wrote above. I think that first photo answers the question: “Why do men always have their hands in their pockets on the red carpet?”…because they look a bit awkward. If the jacket were longer, it would probably help, as he could put his hands at the hem and assume the “holding a roll of quarters” position.

      It’s funny. Whenever I see him, I feel like, as someone said earlier, he’s wavering between, “Is this really happening?” and “Help me break out of the kid actor role!” It must be really, really scary to get to this age and be so unbelievably famous, and yet totally not sure if he will ever work again at the same time. Sure, he will get a few more roles while still riding the Potter coattails, but can he truly move beyond the most famous movie franchise character ever? I hope so, if for no other reason than I think he’s an incredibly hard worker. I wish the same for the other two leads. They deserve to continue acting, if they want to, but whether they will or not remains to be seen.

      He looks fantastic.  I’ve always found it interesting that his hands in the “at rest” hand position is palms down.  Most people have their palms facing their sides.  It makes him look a bit dorky, not that that’s a bad thing.

      Daniel looks perfect.  Adorable.  I live across the street from “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” and I was so impressed with the way he interfaced with his backstage fans.  What a Nice Guy.  And for the record, his “HTSBWRT” performance was the most charismatic male performance I have seen on Broadway since Hugh Jackman in “The Boy from Oz.”

      He kind of has a Hugh Jackman vibe here–cute, put together, and earnest.

      for somebody who claims to use his floor as a closet, he cleans up really well. i love the knit tie with the suit, which makes it less country club, even though they are impossible to tie with a good knot.

      I love the zest the polka-dotted tie brought.
