Chris Colfer for Mr. Porter

Posted on July 11, 2012

We’re still dashing about and being fabulous, but we simply had to get this one up today. Glee’s Chris Colfer gets his suave on for Mr. Porter photographed by Blair Getz Mezibov and styled by Christopher Orrell, and we have to say, we’re impressed.

We didn’t think that little gay elf had it in him, but DAMN. He sure has perfected his Blue Steel, hasn’t he?

    I don’t know.  His facial expression in that first pic is a little bit: “I’m squinting into the sun, and did anyone else smell that?”

    • Shreya Aren

      Actually, it’s more like “Is that smell YOU?” 

  • Perigee

    I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Baby Gay Chris Isaak.  Looking awesomely suave. 

    • Katie Wolf

      Nailed it.

    • Deen

      I can see that.  But in a couple of those I was thinking, “Never gonna give you up…”  Totally Rick Astley to me. 😀

      • jimmack

        HA HA HA I love your comment. Now all I see is Rick Astley wiggling around in his suit in the video. What ever happened to Ricky?

      • Monica Foucher

        If only I had scrolled down before I posted almost the same thing! LOLOLOL

  • homofascist

    That website is the best thing ever for men’s fantasy shopping…

    • Marie Ee

      By which I assume you mean as a man, you fantasy shop there. But I’d like to extend that definition to “as a woman, I fantasy shop there as a man”.

  • Gayer Than Thou

    Good for him — he’s starting to look like a grown man.  (By which I only mean this will help him transition out of ingenue roles.)

    • Kristin McNamara

      Right? Finally starting to look like not-a-fetus. And, sidenote: he’s growin up real nice, methinks.

  • charlotte


  • Vlasta Bubinka

    Like Tom Landry, he only needs one expression. Though I think a smidge of Le Tigre filtered in in that last shot/montage.

  • moppet

    In the third set of pictures, his furrowed brow is coming across a little too much like “wait…did I leave the stove on at home?” But he’s definitely growing up into a fine looking young man. 

  • miagain

    I particularly like the last series of four shots!!  A little Don Draper, Jr right before our eyes!

    • dress_up_doll

      I love it! I could hear them directing him now, “Hey Chris. Let’s see your best drape!”

  • foodhussy

    first time he’s ever actually looked attractive and handsome – good job!

    • Spicytomato1

      Really? I think he’s been handsome and attractive prior to this shoot. Especially in color photos when you can see his adorable flush-prone cheeks.

      • Kristin McNamara


  • formerlyAnon

    He’s managing to look almost completely grown.

  • Spicytomato1

    I saw this earlier and loved it. Love seeing him shed his Glee persona and really bring it here. Impeccable.

  • almondemy

    “oh honey, you’re a MODEL!!”

  • SpcilK

    Daum! The boy can wear some clothes, give some face, and ease into a pose. Good for you Kurt, oops I mean Chris.

    • TieDye64

      Exactly! He looks great.

  • mshesterp

    Very well done.  This is the most interesting that he has ever looked to me–I like it.

  • Sarah Thomas

    The Talented Mr. Colfer.

  • MilaXX

    Our boy has grown up. I really like these and actually find the first shot kinda sexy.

  • hughman

    It’s a little Ryan Gosling IMO. “Hey girl… let me sing you some falsetto then we can talk about those shoes I know you want.”

    • CleverUsernameHere

      Ohmygod, that is perfect! Please let Chris Colfer have his own meme a’la “Feminist Ryan Gosling”!

  • Hannah Shmulsky

    Methinks he is not a little gay elf any longer. Smokin’!

  • CQAussie

    So hot I’m wishing I was gay man.

  • Sara__B

    Unfurrow that brow just a bit, Chris. You’re handsome, talented, and well on your way to rich. You don’t need to look so worried.

  • Kiltdntiltd

    He’s giving of waves of James Dean here. Not bad!

  • Lindras

    Missing the best one, tbh:


  • TheFirstMrsHummel

    Late onset puberty has been very, very kind to Mr. Colfer.  He gets sexier and more gorgeous every day, it seems.  Congrats to the lucky man that lands him one day.

    • jimmack

      Wish it was me.

  • s__clare

    I really love that last one on the balcony/ledge.  IDK just the composition gets me, and it tells a little story depending on your perspective.

    • Sara Munoz Munoz

      The balcony shots are definitely the best! :)

  • Lilithcat

    Age becomes him.

  • MtEarthStars

    This is incredibly surreal.  I went to high school with the photographer. So many kudos to him.

  • guest2visits

    It all looks so good!

  • janetjb

    If these were in color you’d probably see his cute pink cheeks,  but here Chris has grown up.

  • Danielle Marinelli

    He looks like Ewan McGregor’s little brother.

    • Cautia

       I agree! He’s always looked a little Ewan-McGregory to me. If I thought Glee was worth him I’d say they should have McGregor on as Kurt’s uncle or something.

  • unbornfawn

    Nice job Chris.

  • uprightcitizen

    Even though he’s not a redhead, there’s something about these pics that remind me of Rick Astley.

  • Patrick Cleary

    He’s totally growing out of his puppy paws, and doing so very nicely, I think.

  • Kristin McNamara

    And possibly the best part……. HE STILL HAS VISIBLE PORES AND SLIGHT WRINKLES IN THESE PHOTOS!!! Hoorah for not PhotoShopping people to death! Real humans, FTW! (You can especially see it in the large versions on the mrporter site.)

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    Ohhh so I guess it is possible for men (boys?) to model with their mouths closed! Good to know

  • Rand Ortega

    Ooooh la la! The 3rd shot made my hard jaded heart skip a beat!
    Well done, young man!

  • littlemac8

    I love a nice head of hair on a man and my only quibble is that the dark background obscures his locks!  Other than that he looks manly, and I never thought I would say that about him!

  • quiltrx

    FABULOUS hair!!

  • filmcricket

    I’m so glad you guys featured this, he is delish in these photos. Great hair, and he can wear clothes well. Our little boy’s all growed up!

  • erin

     “We didn’t think that little gay elf had it in him, but DAMN. He sure has perfected his Blue Steel, hasn’t he?”

    Sure he may have “perfected his Blue Steel!”  But was there really a need to call him “that little gay elf?”

    For some reason, reading that line has mad me REALLY mad!!

    If you are going to compliment Chris in a “shocked” yet positive way, do it, but do it RESPECTIVELY!!  Calling him “that little gay elf” is NOT being respectful!!

    He is SO MUCH more than his sexuality!  He is a very talented young man who has achieved a great deal due to his strength and determination in 22 years of life.

    • Tom and Lorenzo



    • Lindras

      It is a term of endearment, honey. 

    • Jaeda Laurez

      Yes. Because he looks like a little gay elf. Have you seen his cheeks. And his hipster wardrobe? Yes, he’s so much more than his sexuality, but he’s gay and he looks like an elf. No shade intended.

  • iWoman

    He gets hotter every time I see a new photo of him. A few of these photos give me all kinds of feelings.

  • Paige Boerman

    Wow, look at that smolder! The first one is a little meh, but everything else is all FACE.

  • syuhadah

    he always hot.. DUH! Its annoyed me when people cant actually see it. Ive see many times before.

  • CassandraMortmain

    As others have noted, he’s starting to look like a young man and not a child.  And what a handsome young man he is!  Love the photos.  There’s something very Rat Pack-60’s Vegas about them.  Love.

  • colleenjanel

    He is maturing into quite the old Hollywood look. Nice!

  • TheFirstMrsHummel

    So glad you added that last photo of him on the couch.  UNF

  • frankystein123

    Who knew he got it in him eh?

  • Jennifer Ford

    He has a little bit of a Sal Mineo thing going on there. I wish there was a picture of him at the Griffith Observatory.

    • michelle shields

      Considering how Sal Mineo died, that sounds a little bit creepy

      • Jennifer Ford

        Uhm, okay. I was talking about Rebel without a Cause and the scenes there, and I like Sal Mineo, and it’s awful how he died, but sure. Turn any mention of him into “creepy” because someone murdered him. If I said someone looked like Natalie Wood, would that be creepy, too? James Dean? So is any dead celeb comparison creepy or just if it’s someone who was murdered? 

      • Tom and Lorenzo

         No it doesn’t.

  • donkeygospel6

    This is the first time I’ve ever wanted him to top me rather than the other way around. 

  • RzYoung

    Regardless of how the boy looks the photography is glorious, so nice to see really good black and white photography.

  • Larkin21

    I saw this earlier in the week and haven’t been able to stop looking. He looks amazing!

  • afabulous50

    He looks so much better here than that whining character he plays on Glee.

  • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    Adore it. 

  • jimmack

    The boy looks good…real good. The James Dean hair suits him.

     But wish I could see the clothes better. So tired of fashion editorials that make it impossible to see the clothes. I remember on GQ features basically shot with no light and the words, “T-shirt (crumpled on the floor) by Armani.”

  • michelle shields

    This young man will be very very big one day.

  • SignLadyB

    The boy has become a MAN! 

  • Kristy Evans

    You see Blue Steel, I see holding in a fart. Although the last photo is good.

  • MissAnnieRN

    Dear chris colfer,

    Hire this Christopher orell person immediately.


  • Jen Hofstetter

    Wow. He looks amazeballs.

  • Tamara Hogan


  • BazoDee

    Oh he looks great! Some minor quibbles here and there but he looks so comfortable as a model here -I can’t help but be a bit proud. 

  • PinkLemon

    it’s a bit fart-sniffer for me..

  • Amanda in Austin

    He has come into his own. Happy to see that he’s morphed from little boy into MAN. Super cute, too.

  • SapphoPoet

    Very nice. He’s gonna age well. 

  • kikisayshi

    Pleasantly surprising :)

  • CalicoGal

    Well, I’ll be Emma Stoned. He looks great!

  • sweetlilvoice

    Indeed, who knew? I wish he was this hot in color.

  • Ass Kicking Adviser

    I know I am a day late here but WOW! I never thought he had it in him. Fabulous. 

  • phylora

    Montgomery Clift!

  • JoannaOC

    our little baby is growing up! 

  • Monica Foucher

    He looks SO much like Rick Astley here :)
    “Together forever and never to part. Together forever we two. And don’t you know I would move heaven and earth to be together forever with you…”

  • greyhoundgirl

    He has grown up!  Looks almost like a man in these–and I don’t mean as opposed to a woman or girl–I mean as opposed to a little boy.  He looks handsome.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Definitely getting his heart throb on, isn’t he?

  • sabrina

    he looks attractive all the time but this shoot has some kind of sensual aura around him. he looks like an old classic star good job (: and damn chris lol

  • sabrina

    also i love the balcony shots!

  • DesertDweller79

    These are excellent photos! Wow! He is reminding me of Chris Isaak in these.
