Cannes WERQ: Ewan McGregor in Neil Barrett

Posted on May 30, 2012

WE LOVE YOU, EWAN!!!!!!!

 

 Ewan McGregor onstage at the Closing Ceremony during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival in a Neil Barrett black jersey tuxedo with silk rever from the Fall 2012 Tuxedo Collection.

Neil Barrett Fall 2012 Collection [similar looks]

We really do. We turn into total fangurls at the sight of him. Not just because he’s cute as a button, but because he can wear things that require a PhD in Wearing Things in order to pull off. We can count on one hand the number of men who could really make this work and still be able to give them snaps up. He looks as cute as ever, but he also looks chic as hell. This won’t work for 99.99999% of the male population, but we’ve gotta give it up for the .00001% for whom it can. You WERQ that shit, maestro.

      A WERQ?  With those shoes?  Yes, he looks adorable, but still hate those shoes with the suit.  

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P2ANLRZ6YAVGONA36I2AQJYGI VicD

        Pegged trousers with construction boots?  Agree he carries it off better than most, but …. WHY?

        • Derek_anny

          Are they pegged?  They look like they have a knit cuff.

      • dharmabum8

        The shoes are perfection. It adds a tiny bit of Trainspotting!Ewan nostalgia or something….very HIM.

      • AngelaGreen

         This is the man who managed to look equally hot in a wife-beater and a tux in Moulin Rouge.  He’s a wizard. 

    • Jaspreet5

      He is such a perfect man! 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1183772509 Jen Hughes

      I adore him. I don’t even want children, but I’d have his babies.

        Right?! My ovaries are tingling …

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          If I had em, mine would be too. ( sighing)

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1183772509 Jen Hughes

             Imaginary tingling ovaries! The name of my new band!

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              Thanks for my first out loud guffaw of the day. When they come to SF on tour, I will ask you for back stage passes.

          • DeborahJozayt

            He’s Obi-ing your Wan Kenobi!

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              That just made my day!!!!!

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

              My Obi will definitely take his Kenobi Wan.

              Wait. Did that make sense? He’s just got me flustered, I don’t know…

        • RebeccaKW

           It’s not just my ovaries that he makes tingle.

      • TheOriginalLulu

        Same here! lol

    • MK03

      Oh, Christian. I’ll love you ’til the end of time.

      • Hermione_Granger

        I will love him until my dying day!

    • MilaXX

      I frakin adore him. He is making that pants/shoe combo work

    • hillmad

      He really can do no wrong…*sigh*

    • http://twitter.com/algaechick algaechick

      I love that his boots are broken in (I hope they’re his-I know we’ve seen him in those types before), but not the beat-up, scuffed, pseudo- “I don’t care what I look like” shoes. They’re *polished*!
      Oh, and I lurv him. Adorable and sexy at the same time.

    • BazoDee

      He looks so cute! But the elephant in the room here is how big his feet look in those shoes/pants n’est ce pas? :) 

      • Ogden1990

        You know what they say about big feet…?? (Big socks.)

      • Aurumgirl

        Is that somehow bad?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=149700394 Jessica Smith

      Working the Doctor Who boots!

      • CozyCat

        He’d make a great Dr. Who villian.  Actually, he’d make a great Dr. Who, but they’d never get him.  So the best we could hope for is a villian.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=149700394 Jessica Smith

          Ewan as The Doctor? Oh goodness, like I need to blush throughout the show more than I already do! Would love to see him as a villian, though. Would really love to see him go toe-to-toe with River Song.

    • SpcilK

      Chic and Sexy! Well done Ewan, well done.

    • Sharon Emery

      I love it that he hasn’t ever let go of his punk roots. He looks fabulous!

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

      I looked at that boot/pants combo and went, “Yeah, that’s a Scotsman.” Love it – he looks fantastic.

    • http://kahoxworth.daportfolio.com/ FishInThePercolator

      Immaculate.

    • kimmeister

      “PhD in Wearing Things” *snort*.  Something looks off about the fit of the jacket though.  Like it’s too short or something.

      • 3boysful

         Like it’s just plain too small–sleeves too short, length too short, pulling a bit.

        He’s still cute, however.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      Damn, I’d hit that all day long.

      Anyway, yes, he does look good and I think those shoes are pretty awesome. They give the whole look a bit of quirk and character. WERQ!

      • LuisaNL

         couldn’t have said it better. on both counts.

    • wisenhar

      I love Ewan as much as the next pink-blooded homo, but I simply can’t get behind those pants.  I agree that he comes closer to making them work than anybody else could, but I still think he looks silly.

    • lordandtaylor

      Just don’t see why people are so crazy about this guy. But, to each his own. I think the outfit makes him look a bit large across hips. It reads to me as funeral director is some rural county. I will take Will Smith and his plaid sportcoats anytime.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      He is sartorial awesomeness, squared!

    • janetjb

      So adorable, he made me smile.

      I don’t ever want to see those pants on anyone else, ever.

    • http://twitter.com/Kerry_McC Kerry McCombs

      He’s been my main man since Trainspotting in 1991. He was on the jury at Cannes this year which is why he was so visible throughout the festival. YAY and YUM!

    • allisankelly

      Gorgeous. WERQ well deserved.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=678337501 Carla Axtman

      Ewan McGregor makes me want to ovulate. He is “holy shit” hot. This is a WERQ on steroids (or in my case, hormones).

    • kirkyo

      Ewan better hope Louis CK doesn’t see these pics!

      • mountainFashionista

         Why?  What did I miss?

    • newleaf1

      I don’t get the attraction.  Need more manly guys – he’s just too twee for me.  Can a person be twee?

      • mountainFashionista

         Oh yes.  Yes, indeed.  In fact, a person can be “twee as fuck,” if it’s particularly bad.

        You must be new here…?

    • Jennifer Hofstetter

      I LOVE HIM. On a related note, he and Tom Hiddleston are friends, and I’ma need you to feature some Tom Hiddleston in your man meat posts soon. Plzkthx.

      Sorry, but if I saw these pics from the neck down only I’d guess it was Robert Pattison – and neither of these guys excite my ovaries, or any of my other bits.

      So, TLo, I have to ask; *if* this was on R.P. would you even give it an “In?”

      You’re kidding, right?  His jacket is too small;  he looks like an organ grinder’s monkey.  His tie is hanging out below the jacket.  And the short pants and those boots are an abomination.

    • VicksieDo

      Oh no, honey, that is the worst pair of pants ever paired with a suit jacket.  :-/

    • jilly_d

      WERQ TLo?  Come on, that’s about as close to a male scroll-down fug as I’ve ever seen.

      • leftcoastpickle

        I know, right? I was all, “Mmm, he looks so – AAAAARGG MY EYES!!!!!!!!” Jeez, a little warning would have been nice!

    • ChiKat67

      Oh TLo, I love your fangirl crush on Ewan as much as I love your irrational hatred of Reese.  Only Ewan could make that suit/boot combo WERQ.

    • DaveUWSNYC

      WERQ…indeed! When Ewan’s Really Qute!

      Your beauty is (thankfully) blinding me to what's happening around your ankles. 

    • http://twitter.com/Glam_Dixie Audra R

      I’m sorry, but that looks godawful.

    • girliecue

      How does he manage to look like he was born to wear every outfit he puts on?!? Although I’d love to see him in his birthday suit…

      Warning to Young Hollywood: Do not, I repeat, DO NOT try this look! Half of you can’t even get into The University of Wearing Things and very few of you go on to the Graduate level. Just don’t even think about it. Ewan makes it look easy, but you will not be able to pull this look off.

    • http://twitter.com/hmbscully WendyD

      WERQ!!! I just watched a YouTube video of him playing with lightsabers on the Graham Norton show. Oh SQUEE.
      The only other person that could pull off this look would be Matt Smith.

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

      He is looking utterly snazzy! Love It! (I just wanna know, when the hell did I get older than him!??  I’m feeling like an old lady ogling someone young enough to be her son.) He’s totally HOT!!!!

    • mjude

      • poggi

         Hah!  Good warning.  Yes, I am reluctant to compliment him for precisely this reason–the copy cats will not be pretty.

      • girliecue

        Sorry for the double post. Disqus is messing with me. Again.

    • Lina_bee

      Right, so, I love Ewan. (I have crushed on him since Trainspotting was in art-house theaters.) I agree that he can WERQ any damn thing he chooses to, when he chooses to.  But, um, isn’t this tux a bit snug? Isn’t the jacket a skoosh too short? I know it’s jersey (and jersey for a tux, really??), but still. I’m not sure I should be able to see quite that much of his abdomen and pelvic areas.  What is Neil Barrett DOING??

    • Miriam Kumari

      Gorgeous, edible, delectable man. And the outfit’s not bad either.

      I should hate this…and I don’t.  I love it and I want to print this photo out and tape it on my wall.  

    • In_Stitches

      Two weeks ago when he arrived at Cannes, I said it looked like he was wearing sweat pants.  It appears he’s moved on to long johns.  I applaud him for his daring and like that he attempts truly styled looks that are greater than the sum of their parts, but I just don’t think the end result works.  Props on the jacket though, even if it’s a bit tight.

    • Beardslee

      It’s interesting to me how some people just know how to wear clothes and some people don’t.  Famous people have access to the same stuff but someone like Ewan has enough natural style to always look like he dresses to please himself ,and ends up looking great.  The message always is “I am Ewan McGregor.”  He never looks like a dress up doll.

    • TSkot

      No no no no no no no.  No.  And no.  

      Still no.

    • charlotte

      The PhD in Wearing Things should require a class taught by TLo. How about “Hemming 101″ for guys and  “Advanced Tailoring in Non-Nude Colors for Various Body Shapes ” for girls.

    • HobbitGirl

      So precious.

    • Qitkat

      I’m hoping those are just unflattering pics of him, cause he is normally much hotter than this. So no werq from me, especially with army boots and slubby tux trousers.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      LOVE HIM!  He’s a WERQ no matter what he’s wearing. 

    • guest2visits

      Although incredibly handsome and talented; sorry Ewan.   RDJ has a way with unusual footwear; but I don’t like these old army boots;
      at all.  And the elasticized cuffs on the suit pants, even worse.  But if you smile; I’m sure I’ll forget all that.

      Wow, I hate this. The pant/boot combo is terrible. I am in the vast minority though. I also don’t think he’s attractive. 

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/DJHCEFC7S5WYITH3D5ORYGS56I amye

      Um…. this is not a WERQ.  His posture is terrible, and those shoe/boots do…not….work with a suit like this!

      Have you boys ever caught his episode of the Graham Norton Show on BBC America from last year?  They replay it on a loop and I watch it every time.  Him & Chris O’Dowd geeking out with light sabres and just being generally adorable.  It’ll totally feed any fangurl’s frenzy.
