Matt Smith at the Polo Club

Posted on July 25, 2012

We don’t have a “Guy at the Polo Club” feature here, but maybe we should. Because any setting that can take King Hipster Dork  (said with love) Matt Smith and turn him into this:

‘Dr. Who’ star Matt Smith at the Audi International Polo held at Guards Polo Club in Egham, United Kingdom.

…is a place we want to visit. Love the socks, Matt.

      Wow. i did not think it was possible for the wee hipster lad to be hot, but I stand corrected. Still no David Tennant, but looking fine Mr. Smith!

    • Sara__B

      THIS is the epitome of effortless chic.

      Polo clubs are cool.

      I HEART HIM SO MUCH!!!  This just makes him even more favorable.  Can’t believe I was able to like someone after the 10th Doctor…

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      Had a geekgasm this morning when I found out that Ben Browder is going to be in the new season of Doctor Who.  Thanks for rounding out my Happy Whovian day with lovely shots of Mr Smith.

      • MilaXX

         World’s colliding! Ben Browler & Matty!

        • CozyCat

          All they need now is to find a  part for Claudia Black….

      • RebeccaKW

         Ben Browder.  I almost orgasm just saying his name.  Love.

      • skadi1

        That is the best news I’ve heard all day. I’ve been missing Ben SO MUCH!

      • Reneesance

        EEeee! Ben Browder I <3 him so much.

      • KathKo

         Hello, Tardis, meet Atlantis.
        That sounds like a fanfic title I’d love to read.

    • WendyD

      I saw some other photos from this event a few days ago and I was DYING. Any man who doesn’t like to wear a suit, needs to see these photos. He is so so beautiful. 

      I’m telling myself those are TARDIS blue socks and no one can convince me otherwise. 

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        I got Tardis Blue hair extensions put in yesterday, they go quite well with ginger.

        • samitee

          Now *that* is ultimate Ginge!

    • janetjb


    • Maya KC

      Nice. He is normally adorable want, now just want.

    • Rand Ortega


    • Krysta

      Ho-ly shit.

    • Lauren

      I love a man who can pull off a three-piece suit (that I would subsequently like to pull off *hint, hint*).

    • Vaniljekjeks

      He is too perfect.  I love the socks, too!  

    • call_me_schmeg

      pardon me while i go to the bathroom to clean up my SQQUEEEEENERDGASM!!!!

      oh god, that was good…

      • Kiltdntiltd

        Oh I love you for this!

    • Amanda

      I bet he’s drinking Pimms.  so awesome.

      • Adriana_Paula

        I thought so too!  Ah, Pimm’s in the summertime…

      • foodycatAlicia

         If he were really the King of the Hipsters it’d be Sipsmith Summer Cup, not Pimms.

    • Evan Hart

      I ask this with love, as I adore Matt Smith, but is his jacket a big large? I’m not sure if it’s just because it’s unbuttoned, but it looks a bit big…

      This is, of course, nitpicky. He looks awesome otherwise.

    • Andrea Lane

      I think I just fainted.

      Ok, I’m back now.

    • MajorBedhead

      He looks adorably fabulous. He should pin this photo to the inside of his closet every time he’s tempted to wear a stretched-out-neck t-shirt.

      He’s also going to be on the cover of EW and there are going to be FOUR, count ’em, FOUR timey-wimey, science-y specials on about Doctor Who, starting August 4th, on BBCAmerica. And then the series will start up again and I will be a very happy woman. 

      • MilaXX

         DVR is already set. In fact I have an alert set for many of the WHOverse peeps.

    • Jennifer Ford

      Another gorgeous, skinny British boy? TLo, are you trying to MURDER ME? If so, please send Tom Hiddleston along with the coup de grace.

      • WendyD

        Another vote for more Hiddleston! Tom Hiddleston and Matt Smith are my Brits of Perfection these days.

        • MajorBedhead

           And Benedict Cumberbatch. Swooooooony.

          • Maggie_Mae

            More PR for BC’s “Parade’s End” has been hitting the ‘net.  The director was quoted as calling it “Downton Abbey meets The Wire.” Based on some truly excellent novels by Ford Madox Ford, with a script by genius Tom Stoppard, it will show in September.  Or maybe August.  On BBC2–& on HBO at some time!  BC does look well in Edwardian dress (or uniform)….

            Concerning Matt: As much as I love him as The Doctor, these shots give me hope for his later career….

    • Michael Rios

      I’m not usually a fan of his aesthetic, but uh…. yyyyyum.

    • lucasuk82

      Is he drinking a Moscow Mule?  Fabulous!

    • Judy_J

      He looks adorable!  I too love the blue socks.  Very well done, Matt!

    • Phire

      Oh my god I’m dead I died died dead

    • marlie

      There’s something off about the fit, but he still looks dashing. And the socks MAKE the look!

    • Meghann

      He’s drinking a Pimms.  Now I want one…

      • Julia

        We should make a batch for all of us.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Did he get eyebrow implants?


      • kimmeister

        I was kinda wondering that myself!

    • Snickleboom

      Welp…I’m done.  *thud*

    • TheOriginalLulu


    • GorgeousThings

      Where’s the “like” button? Even better, where’s the “Love” button? For Matt Smith and for TLo!

    • Sammi M

      Oh my goodness. This is the first time I’ve ever found him attractive (like, sexually attractive, not “I guess he has a nice face” attractive). 

    • MilaXX

      The shoes are still hipster, but it’s nice to see he knows how to dress appropriately for an event.

      • CozyCat

        The slightly bored attitude is very hipster too.

    • AlexisPayne


    • granddelusion

      Me, too! Love the socks! And he sure is rocking that suit.

    • LauraWL

      He’s drinking a Pimm’s Cup! I don’t know why I find that so delightfully “English leisure class.” I do think he looks less terrifying with sunglasses on covering up those eyebrows. 

    • formerlyAnon


      Suck it little hipster wannabes. He’s wearing socks and he’s hotter than 10 of you.

      SOCKS!! And lovely, non-ironic, color coordinated socks, at that.

      ETA: Um, sorry. Got carried away. Forgot to say he looks wonderful in his lovely suit, fitting the way I like ’em (skinny boys in loose clothing FTW.)

      Oh, and thank-you, English weather. Almost anywhere in the U.S. he’d be risking heat stroke, and look all pink and sweaty.

      Socks, socks, loverly socks! (I DO hate that preppy boat shoe look when it’s extended to loafers or dress shoes, truly I do.)

    • rivula

      ah, three cheers for the good Doctor!

    • GenieinTX

      I effing love the doctor, but never have found Matt hot – until these pics.  I like big boys (like Joe Manginello’s) way better than skinny boys, but Rowr! Mr Smith

    • Beardslee

      The man knows how to wear a suit and I love the Fred Astaire socks.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      now that is how you do matchy matchy.  if i were a heterosexual i would hate this suave, skinny, pasty, pretty ovary magnet.  the imgur and reddit girls absolutely freak over this guy — they get downright filthy and are quite vocal and graphically detailed about their thoughts when his face pops up on the feeds.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Oh, hello, Doctor!

    • fursa_saida

      I had a good friend in college who, toward the end of his time there (and he took seven years to graduate, long story) got reeeaaally into colored socks. He was dyeing them himself.

      What I’m saying is, much respeck for a bright sock.

      I still like Matt Smith better in his hipster duds, though.

    • RL McGruder

      He is not even close to being my type, but THAT mutha looks good!

    • ClevelandburbsBeth

      My lipstick is on his right shoulder.

    • nannypoo

      Lately we’ve been seeing a lots of guys in suits with dress shoes and no socks. Here is a guy who looks great in a suit with dress shoes and beautiful socks. I’d take this one any time.

    • guest2visits

      I want to know whats in his elegant glass, – I spy a wedge of lime, ice? Is that foam? Beer, tea…? 
      Inquiring minds want to know whats on the liquor menu at British polo clubs.
      This all looks good on him. The socks are fun.

    •árez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      From now on, I’m hopelessly in love with Matt Smith. He’s got coolness oozing through his pores, and I can’t not love that.

    • holdstillnow

      One of the few men in the world who could temporarily turn me, and these photos seal the deal.

    • crash1212

      He is so perfect in all ways…and now I want a Pimms Cup.

    • Molly Harrington ⚓

      omg. My ovaries.

    • Therese Bohn

      I lurve him. 

    • Shannon Stewart

      I want to visit any place Matt Smith is

    • quiltrx

    • samitee

    • foodycatAlicia

      The 3 piece suit makes me think Ianto/Dr slash fic.

    • jimmack

      The boy look good. I love the socks too. But please straighten your tie. Thank you very much.

    • Jellybish

      I will never be converted from Team Tennant, but damn. He looks hot.

    • mjude


    • PeggyOC

      And the Pimms cup.  Way to embrace the English Summer vibe, Matt.

    • siriuslover It’s almost as if these photos are GQ cover shots! He looks stunning and chic! Love it!

    • littlemac8

      Do you suppose that’s a Pimm’s Cup in his hand?

    • Cathy S

      Holy cow!

    • amanda lynn

    • Toto Maya


    • Anathema_Device

      Love the King Hipster Dork cleans up this well. Good lord, he looks freaking amazing here.

    • KathKo

      Fabulous !
      He might favor the hipster looks, but suits really suits him (pun intended).
