Daniel Radcliffe for Attitude Magazine

Posted on February 24, 2012

Dan proves once and for all what we’ve suspected for a while:

Daniel Radcliffe featured in the March 2012 issue of Attitude magazine photographed by Greg Vaughan and styled by Elauan Lee and Sam Spector.

He was built for sweaters. This should become his thing. Those tightassed suits he’s been sporting in public the last few years just weren’t selling him. He’s even making the goofy-ass Cosby-esque sweaters work – and boys? They’re coming back. We’re warning you now. Also, we would cut a line of bitches for a black leather McQueen baseball jacket.

Didn’t we say, though? Didn’t we say this boy should ditch the suits and look to the hipsters for inspiration? Pardon us, we’re preening again.

 Baseball jacket by Alexander McQueen. Banana print shirt by River Island. Jeans by Costume National.


Leopard print sweater by APC. Shirt by Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. Jean by Topman. Sneakers by Pierre Hardy. Sunglasses by Yves Saint Laurent. 


Sweater by Marc by Marc Jacobs. Shirt by Shipley & Halmos. Jeans by Rag & Bone.


Jumper by Burberry Prorsum. Jeans from Topman.

    Are you sure we haven’t been RickRolled?

    • Sara LaBatt

      OMG.  That made my day!

  • Kristy Evans

    This is a FANTASTIC photo spread. Best he’s looked. His “Blue Steel” at the end cracked me up, though.

    • http://www.facebook.com/CatherineKatz Catherine Katz

      But he’s really, really, really good looking.

      And adorable!  I cackled at your “Blue Steel” comment!

      • Jill_3

         WORD! Man, is he adorable. I love his Blue Steel. It’s like he’s a second away from cracking up.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YAMNQMUGFM4NNSPAQLZRODSD5I Angela

         you forgot ridiculously…

    • http://twitter.com/EBarkenbush Ellen Barkenbush

      Are you sure that’s “Blue Steel”? It looks more like “Magnum” or “Le Tigre” to me 😉

      • Tamara Hogan

        Regardless, he is WERQING IT.

  • FashionShowAtLunch

    ADORABLE.  Seriously.

    Also, I need that leopard print sweater.

    • http://annequichante.wordpress.com/ Anne


      • FashionShowAtLunch

        Yes! Love when people get the reference.

  • Anathema_Device

    Oh so ’80s! he looks really great here. Love the blue shoes he is wearing in that yellow-sweater pic.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      The blue shoes are kind of awesome. And I can’t believe how fantastic he looks in that leather jacket. This is definitely his look. TLo are right again.

    • kimmeister

      Those blue shoes are my favorite item in this whole series!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Natalie-Daniels/676892608 Natalie Daniels

      My boyfriend just bought those shoes a few weeks ago. They are Cole Haan

      • Anathema_Device

        I saw some similar last year that I tried to talk my husband into buying! Maybe this year?

  • turtleemily

    I think I saw that leopard sweater in a Delia’s catalog first.

  • Sobaika Mirza

    LOVE this. A bit too 80s, but it’s fun and a different look for him after all the ‘How to Succeed…’ photocalls.

  • http://pianofingernails.blogspot.com/ Laura King

    I’m exactly the age to have fallen in love with this boy when we were both 12, but he has always just looked goofy to me. But his last couple magazine spreads? He’s looking good! 

    • NC_Meg

      Same here! I’m a year older than him and a huge HP fan but never thought he was that good looking. He’s so cute here and in what I’ve seen of him in How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, though.

    • miwome

       Same here. It’s freaking me out a little.

    • rawrgrowlrawr

      When we were both twelve, I was convinced I was going to marry him one day. Nothing has changed. He is beautiful. 

  • dress_up_doll

    I tend to skip over the Daniel Eadcliffe posts, but I’m glad I checked this one out. What a fun and cute spread. He looks fabulous —-even in the hideously reductive Bill Cosby sweater. I especially like the wtf expression on his face for that one.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    He looks so good here. I swear, somebody read our comments about the eyebrows and gave them a little pruning.

    • http://www.GiftedCollector.com Nancy Abrams

      He actually spoke about his eyebrows on Graham Norton last week. Said he does occasionally trim them, but I think he doesn’t go quite far enough. 

      DR is one of those people who is perfectly proportioned and seems taller than he is. He looks great on his own but shrinks considerably when he stands next to taller people. 

  • mjude

    love him.

  • TaurusKW

    Great pictures…but damn, that boy is PALE!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OK26PHQATX3VMJXUJDYLOC24GE K

       Nothing wrong with that. He’s actually darker than my husband and daughter!

    • filmcricket

       Yeah, Chris Columbus actually put gold filters on the cameras when shooting the first two Potter films because the Trio was so pale; he said it was like filming “milk bottles with feet.”

  • PastryGoddess

    I don’t know how old he is now, but he is going to be a stone cold fox when he hits his 30’s.

    Honey looks faboosh and should just wear these clothes all day every day


    I’ve always thought that it’s so interesting how he can jump between looking like a complete dweeb and a nice glass of lean, handsome, do me please.

    Oh, and this is a very cute spread.

    …Eyebrows could use a little grooming, though.

  • http://annequichante.wordpress.com/ Anne

    I love him in the leopard print one.  I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a man pull of a leopard print sweater, but awesome.

  • MK03

    Oh God, no!! Too much hipster!! 

    • understateddiva

      Thank you!  But turn the hipster dial a couple of clicks to the left and I’d love it.  I think it’s the shoes and cuffed jeans that mess up the look for me – not only are they a little cutesy/ironic, they make him look short.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    Best I’ve seen him look. I was really enjoying this editorial until the Cosby-sweater photo squicked me out. There’s my little brother staring out at me again.

    • rawrgrowlrawr

      Is your little brother single? :)

      • LesYeuxHiboux

        Haha, yes, but he’s also sixteen. Should I be giving you the fish-eye?

  • http://twitter.com/myblackfriend myblackfriendsays

    three cheers for the Cosby sweaters!

  • BeeBeauNYC

    I wore the Cosby sweaters in the 80s. I learned in that process that I am not a sweater-wearing guy, so that fashion trend shall not be repeated!

  • GorgeousThings

    Hell, I would cut a line of bitches for a McQueen baseball jacket!

    • tinyredlocks

      The bitch cutting line forms here… :-)

  • girliecue

    Maybe I’m just a sucker for dark-haired, blue-eyed men, but doesn’t he look more and more like Patrick “Dr. McDreamy” Dempsey as he matures? Looking good, Mr. Radcliffe! Keep listening to T Lo and your hot streak will never end.

    • RebeccaKW

       He is definitely is getting cuter as he grows older, much like Patrick Dempsey. 

    • Lisa

      I don’t see the McDreamy resemblance, but I too am a total pushover for dark-haired, blue-eyed men.  They’re my favorites!

  • http://profiles.google.com/ballinger.jl Jessica Ballinger

    He looks like his eyes and mouth got sucked in towards his nose.  Like, his eyes should be a skosh higher and farther apart, and his mouth should be a bit lower.  Especially in that last shot.

  • Amy Ellinger

    Makes me think of “Bye Bye Birdie” type musical numbers. Love it!!!

    • miwome

      Definitely. Some of these shots are less a modern hipster look so much as a 50s hipster look. Which I love!

  • RebeccaKW

    He looks so great.  Loving the hair.  Appears he’s had some eyebrow grooming. 

    Love the leopard sweater.  The baseball jacket is fabulous.

  • http://twitter.com/delysia_lafosse Delysia LaFosse

    VERY cute. This look really is perfect for him. I’m especially loving the black and white shirt underneath the mustard yellow sweater.

  • Judy_J

    He’s definitely a sweater boy. 

  • http://www.wordydoodles.com WordyDoodles

    I can’t be the only one cracking up at TLo’s clever pivot:
    – Dan proves what we’ve suspected
    – [photo of DR on cover of “UK’s best selling & award-winning gay magazine”]
    – He looks great in sweaters!

    • Lisa

      Oh, wow, I’m totally slow – I just got that now!  Haa!

  • MagsRagsVintage

    So cute! Like Elijah Woods’ younger brother, but with a normal sized neck.

  • MzzPants

    Now, I’m not talking about swagger or acting chops, but there is something about his appearance here that reminds me of a young Sean Penn….the lines of the face, the hair…something.

    All on his own…he looks great.  He needs to hire whoever styled this immediately.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Katie-Heim/708520610 Katie Heim


  • unbornfawn

    I’d say he’s coming along nicely.

  • http://twitter.com/arodenha Alli

    I would like that blue cover sweater in my size, please and thank you.

  • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

    Awesome shoot. He’s putting the Rad in DanRad. I feel so proud.

  • AlexisPayne

    He is adorbs!

  • joe_tey83

    His face always look like it’s kinda melting.

  • Terence Ng

    The yellow sweater photo looks like he fell straight out of an illustration by Edward Gorey. I LOVE IT. <3

  • Pennymac

    Bowing down to the T and the Lo for the spot on advice to Mr. Radcliff! He looks amazing, and makes the clothes in this shoot look to die. Except for the McQueen jacket and the blue shoes, which are stand alone fabulous. Makes me wanna shop for my two single sons (who would cringe at that statement due to their biker/rock god personas)

  • MilaXX

    He looks absolutely cute and adorable here. These really are much more youthful than those boring suits he wears all the time. I love every single look.

  • Elaine Lang

    The Dan Rad caps just write themselves:

    Cover:  “Why, yes, I am awesome and socially aware.”
    Leather Jacket:  “Uh, oh.  Those guys look ready to cut someone for my jacket.”
    Leopard 1:  “I think Kurt wore this on Glee.”
    Mustard Sweater:  “I like to dance in cool blue shoes!”
    The Cos:  “Excuse me, wardrobe person?   What the holy hell are you smoking?”
    Leopard 2:  “My next charitable venture shall be a Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/vsticker Vera E Sticker

    This is EASILY the best he’s ever looked. Wow.

  • HobbitGirl

    He is a darling tiny man! The sweaters look quite good here.

  • thehousesparrow

    Ahhh he looks so adorable!

  • thehousesparrow

    Ahhh he looks so adorable!

  • SapphoPoet

    What a great photo shoot. I never noticed what a great profile he has, such as the picture with the harvest gold sweater. I think he’s going to age really well. 

  • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

    Wow! He is rocking those sweaters. And I am not a sweater gal. Wow. Did I already say that?
    And I agree on the beauty of that McQueen jacket. Like buttah’!

  • siriuslover

    TLo, I will never doubt you again. He is gorgeous in these shots! He looks so very cool.

  • snarkykitten

    good to know that copy writers can look past his career when writing headlines


  • BigShamu

    Snort.  Nice set-up and then answering the question after the jump.

  • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com/ Rebecca

    Bless the stylist who finally trimmed those Oscarbrows!!!

    • Lisa


  • Lisa

    He looks fabulous!  He really does rock the sweaters, and yes, even the Cosby one!

  • mommyca

    He looks amazing….. The leopard print sweater pic with him wearing sunglasses is so so cool…. 

  • nannypoo

    Much better. Hipster for sure.

  • margaret meyers

    Great clothes.  I like what they dd to his eyebrows, but I want them to do it just another 10%.  Maybe 15.

  • http://angryfemur.tumblr.com Andrea Lane

    I want that effing leopard print sweater.

  • AlieMichelle

    He is so precious. I just want to pinch his cheeks and make him waffles.

  • http://profiles.google.com/misslauraschultz Laura Schultz

    The last sweater is a bridge too far, but otherwise, diggin it. I do hope he has further success. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Megan-Mackay/711323409 Megan Mackay

    D’aww. I just want to pinch his cheeks and hug him.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties


  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Emily-Smith/12431153 Emily Smith

    zomg that’s adorable.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lara-Lutrick/1222052998 Lara Lutrick

    He looks his age in these. I like this look so much better than the silly suits.

  • SatelliteAlice

    That leopard print one looks great on him.

  • Ellen Schieber

    Adorkables!!  He also looks like Ben McKenzie’s brunet little bro.  With this and his personality (knows Tom Lehrer’s Elements song, sogh) he’s one of the few young-uns that makes my 45YO ass wish it was young again.  “Edward” and “Jacob” certainly don’t.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YAMNQMUGFM4NNSPAQLZRODSD5I Angela

    He’s our new Ferris Bueller!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZVFQFJRM6N3IBGDQMQGW6IX2DA Lorrie

    I would SO lick him..

  • quiltrx

    His hair is FABULOUS on the cover!  Looks really good in that last shot, too.  He should go for the funky high hair more instead of the smooth and clean cut look…funky is sexier!

  • blondie65

    Ohhhh…. Love.  Love, love, love. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001998855370 Fatima Siddique

    O Danny Boy, you WERQ that leopard print sweater!

  • BookishBren

    I hate animal print but that leopard print sweater on him is fabulous.

  • bitterk

    What is a jumper?

    • formerlyAnon

      “jumper” is British for sweater.

  • http://twitter.com/anacedillo Ana Cedillo

    harry potter is sooo cuteee!

  • formerlyAnon


    He looks much less like a dad 20 years his senior, here.

    But my mind just can’t leave well enough alone, I have to see him as a ‘character.’  Here, I’m thinking Grand Prix level equestrian.

    (No, I don’t know why I think that. I just do. He is, here, clearly an internationally known rider who may or may not have once had a cocaine problem.)

    • ChristySchiff

       I will see that movie.

  • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

    I love a man in a sweater. He done good here.

  • Markatha

    You boys are right this is a much better look for him. 
     I saw him last week on Andy Cohen. 
    The man is short. 
    I hadn’t realized just how short. 
    He’s so cute & I really like his personality. 
    He’s a cute little pocket pal rockin’ the sweaters.

    • ChristySchiff

       “cute little pocket pal rockin’ the sweaters”… Hee-Hee

    • Lisa

      Oh, yeah, he’s a wee man!

  • http://twitter.com/pag_baj Paige Boerman

    I love DanRad so. And he is WERQing those sweaters.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OK26PHQATX3VMJXUJDYLOC24GE K

    God, I’m nearly 40 and I swooned at the last pic where his eyes are giving the look. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=558631967 Ivona Foster

    LOVE the shoes in the yellow sweater pic!

  • http://twitter.com/jaythenerdkid Aaminah Khan

    Awww, isn’t he adorable?

    I’ll never see him as anything more than a cute kid (this, even though he is almost exactly my age!), but there’s no denying he looks pretty well in these photos. And it’s so refreshing to see him having a bit of fun with them, too. All those Big Serious Actor guyditorials get on my nerves.

  • Pterodactyl111

    Oh my Lord: adorable.

  • CatherineRhodes

    For the record, I love guys in Cosby sweaters.

    But Daniel Radcliffe, just not a fangirl.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Micaela-Cannon/1465504041 Micaela Cannon

    This is the least creepy Daniel Radcliffe has ever looked!….but he still kind of weirds me out. I’m sorry Daniel, it’s nothing personal!

  • filmcricket

     Very Elijah Wood. Appropriate, given how many parallels there are between them.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1077090078 Megan Sullivan

    I never found him attractive until now. And I think it’s the sweaters that did it.

  • alyce1213

    I just want to take a bite!  I mean that in the most maternal way.
    He’s adorable and interesting – such a nice young man. (There goes that maternal again.)
    I love his hair.

  • marilyn

    Love it! 

  • finnishmaria

    I want that leopard sweater.

  • lisaepc

    Go ahead and do your “We were right” happy dance!

  • lundibleu

    He looks good but… again… a big NO to the skinny (and even worse, rolled) jeans. They just do not work on him at all, he is the wrong shape for them. 

    And yeah, I get why people feel a bit … wrong… thinking about Dan Radcliffe as ‘hot’ or ‘sexy’. But I so would. 

  • gabbilevy

    Best he’s ever looked.

  • miwome

    Oh! I think this might be the first time I’ve considered him a little bit sexy! Well done, sweaters. (I want the Burberry Cosby sweater in size A MILLION just to slouch around in on the couch, which is why I should never have money or nice things.)

  • GTrain

    It’s fun, but he just doesn’t do it for me.

  • Caren Tarvin

    Best he’s looked.  I love the cocked eyebrow in the Cosby sweater shot, like he’s saying “Really?  These are coming back?  Guess I’ll have to make it work”

  • Cathy S

    You win. That Burberry sweater is incredible and I want it.

  • Larkin21

    Damn, he just keeps looking better and better.

  • DominoEstella


  • afabulous50

    I can’t wait to see what he looks like in this 30’s and 40’s (if I’m still alive).  That McQueen jacket is fabulous, and fabulous on him.

  • maria alcantara

    Completely creeped OUT by him.

  • PhillipWilde

    Dan’s looking damn good.  Such a transformation.

  • Shannon Maxham

    That boy needs some sunlight. If he’s not careful he might start sparkling.

    • http://twitter.com/ennisamy Amy Ennis

      Ok. I lol’d at that one. 

  • http://twitter.com/evagination Kendra Lynn

    He looks effing awesome, instead of his usual (a wee bit awkward).
