Alan Cumming at The BAFTA Awards

Posted on November 08, 2012

Let’s kick off the morning with some male sartorial deliciousness, shall we?

 

Alan Cumming hosts the 2012 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards Presented By BBC AMERICA in Beverly Hills, California.

Near-perfection.

But only “near.” We were willing to overlook them the last time and award him a WERQ, but we simply can’t get past those Frankenstein shoes. Why, Alan? Why go to all the trouble to wear a gorgeous, meticulously tailored, head-turning tux, and then ruin it by putting on a pair of gardening shoes? Is there some sort of foot issue we need to be aware of? Aren’t there better orthopedic shoes out there for you to buy? No one’s saying that you have to sport something painful and pointy-toed but surely there’s a happy medium between fierce, uncomfortable shoes and something they give prisoners to wear so they don’t hang themselves, yes?

The shame of it all is that his pants look to be perfectly hemmed but his clown shoes ruin the line.  Oh well. He’s so far ahead of the rest of the celebrity XY pack when it comes to fashion risk-taking that we suppose we’ll have to begrudgingly overlook his shoe issue.
