WERQ: Ewan McGregor in Balenciaga

Posted on December 11, 2012

Rare is the occurence known as a Boy WERQ. Rarer still will you find us complimenting a man in an all-grey outfit.

But we think it’s safe to say that we can all agree on this one.

Ewan McGregor attends the premiere of ‘The Impossible’ in Los Angeles in Balenciaga.

You WERQ the shit out of your silver shoes, boy. Snaps of ENVY mixed with RESPECT.

Also, maybe just a little bit of dreamy sighing.

      Those are some shiny, shiny shoes! It’s not often he gets seriously polished but when he does it is to good effect.

        It’s refreshing to see such shine in a sea of “worn out” hipster shoes. Also, props for grooming!

      • RebeccaKW

         Would cut a bitch for a female version of those shoes.

      I am not into the man-shoe trend right now, but I would push him down and steal his shoes. 

      • PastryGoddess

        And I’ll take the rest!

    • http://profiles.google.com/rosatcollege Ros Clarke

      Those shoes are incredible. I’d have liked a slightly less shiny suit with them, though.

    • thecitysleeps

      UNF. I adore the shoes.

      • MissAmynae

        exactly. can we get a “UNF” category for man-WERQ’s?

    • http://profiles.google.com/meganhuber70 Megan Huber

      He is just beautiful….

    • http://twitter.com/phd_tv Heather B.

      Good lord. The man can do no wrong. WERQ indeed.

      • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

        He could be wearing a belt.  I cannot get used to the idea of a suit with no belt.  What keeps his pants from falling right off?

        • http://twitter.com/thehilariest The Hilariest

           Damn fine tailoring.

        • http://twitter.com/phd_tv Heather B.

          I can honestly say I didn’t even notice the lack of belt. But it wouldn’t bother me one bit if his pants just fell right off, so I guess I’m fine with no belt!

        • kimmeister

          Wearing the right size pants?

        • dgh

          The magnetic pull of his penis. That’s what keeps his pants from falling right off.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      That is the man version of an Oscar campaign. He wants “The Impossible” in the Best Picture run. WERQ IT!

    • http://profiles.google.com/anplica Anplica Fiore

      Lots of dreamy sighing – over both Ewan AND his shoes!

    • http://twitter.com/stellaphone Stella Zawistowski

      Those are some fine shoes.

    • HobbitGirl

      Ohhhh, yummy.

    • Sobaika

      Those shoes are insane – I love them! He cleans up very well.

      This movie looks pretty bad. 

    • neofashionista

      Wow he looks amazingly hot but I am not so sure about the silver shoes too shiney for the please fuck me scottish country hotness that is Ewan
      Oh well

    • Tatiana Luján

      He looks like a christmas present, for me. Swoon.

    • http://www.twitter.com/allforusophia AllForUSophia

      Boy did it again.

    • crash1212

      Those shoes! SWOON!!

    • http://twitter.com/marieldrucker Marie Drucker

      I’ll take one with everything.

    • Judy_J

      Very, very nice.

    • Patricia Gillett

      Love it when a man can work fab shoes. 

    • nannypoo

      Perfect. Everything would have been great until he added the shoes and then it became fabulous.

    • http://twitter.com/dixielou8 Ashley

      I want the shoes… just so I can look at them all the time *swoon*

    • Crystal

      Those are some beautiful shoes. 

    • Katia Alba

      He looks beautiful as always, by the way, just when i was watching the pics, his version of “Your Song” started in my headphones 😀

      • MzzPants


    • Violina23

      *swoon* I will never not adore him…

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396777506 Christin Pardy-Nosenchuk

      hell yes

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Two of my favorite things on earth in one package. Ewan and Balenciaga.
      And I WANT those shoes something chronic.

      • Anathema_Device

        Was just in the Fluevog store on Grant St. in SF. They have a pair of silver men’s wingtips, but they are more of a distressed silver. Pricey, of course, but cool.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          I have one pair of Fluevolg boots, lined in turquoise glove leather. I treasure them. I may just have to treat myself for Xmas, as I’ve been such a good lad this year.

          • Anathema_Device

             I was wrong. They aren’t wingtips, but they are still pretty cool. I swear I saw silver wingtips, must have been at Bloomingdales. http://www.fluevog.com/code/?p=10&pp=1&view=detail&colourID=3497

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              Bless. I will look for them!!!!

            • http://www.facebook.com/fiddlecub Kevin VanOrd

              Oh my Lord–I love the fluevogs, and I work a quarter of a mile from there. Must. Resist.

            • Anathema_Device

              Heh. Back in the day, my nickname was “The Instigator.” Guess I still got it.

        • MilaXX

           love fluevogs, but have a hard time fitting them because my feet are wide

    • LuisaNL

      he really is made of awesome. silver awesome.

    • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

      Those shoes are the best thing I’ve seen in a few weeks. Wrap him up, I’ll take him to go.

    • afabulous50

      Those shoes are kick ass!

    • Jangle57

      CBS Sunday Morning did a profile on him this past week.  He seems as nice a guy as he is gorgeous to look at.  Sigh.

      • http://twitter.com/iamntng iamntng

        I love that he’s been married for something like 18 years. And he keeps his kids out of the spotlight. Good man.

    • MilaXX

      yes! Love Ewan and the shoes gave me life. Werq

    • Introspective

      good suit, with even better tailoring, and fierce shoes. Im not mad at it. 

    • RzYoung

      Those shoes!! I love them and want them and want to see him wear them with a kilt…if you get my drift oi oi 😉 

      • Sara LaBatt

        They are polished up very shiny!  Ha!

    • mjude

      i just love him. 

    • PeggyOC

      Yep, that’s just about perfect. Very Ewan.  Polished and professional with just a kick of wacky.

    • xmixiex

      oh.  sigh.  (though i do like him better with a beard, i think.)

    • fungstyle

      i would cut him for those shoes. if they were a women’s size 7. 

    • kayleymaybe

      I wish he hadn’t shaved.  He is gorgeous either way, but I prefer him scruffy…

    • http://twitter.com/detemple patsy stone detemple

      Way too shiny suit!

    • Brittany Bathie

      Those shoes!  I adore him.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Like a fine wine.  A fine ginger wine…

    • Puck Thornton

      Ewan is just perfect. Love the suit and the shoes. I want to find him under my Christmas tree, no need to wrap him. 

    • Jessi03

      The shoes!!!  He looks adorable.

    • Le_Sigh

      After a rough morning seeing THAT is exactly what I needed.

    • JasmineAM

      Ugh this just makes me want those pewter Docs even more! I am green with envy.

      WOW. Love the subtle male-POC with the silver shoes picking up the red in the carpet. Genius.

    • Judy_S

      I give God a WERQ for Ewan McGregor.

      Dreamy sighing indeed. Gorgeous.

    • http://twitter.com/hamsteaky Maria Smith

      I actually blurted out “LORD HAVE MERCY!!!!”

    • alyce1213

      It just doesn’t get any better than that.

    • Anathema_Device

      I only disagree on one point: I’ll be doing A LOT of dreamy sighing.

    • http://twitter.com/NMMagpie NMMagpie

      The HECK with the shoes; the MAN is incredible. Wow wow wow and WOW.

    • http://twitter.com/starlounging Ann M. Erickson

      I LOVE THOSE SHOES. I need a girl version, stat! And an excuse to wear shiny silver shoes.

      • formerlyAnon

        “It’s Tuesday” is an excuse for any fine pair of shoes.

    • hillmad

      This man can do no wrong! 

    • RocknRollmom

      I am rendered speechless by those amazing shoes.  And as with others, LOTS of dreamy sighing.  Damn that man is fine.

    • Thuc Dang

      Wow, perfect hem length, bold shoes choice, terrific cut and fit. FLAWLESS HAIR. A big mercy MERQ!

    • gsk241

      He looks great, of course, and it is refreshing to see a man star who still owns a razor!

    • E. D.

      Good Lord he’s hot.  WERQ.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Neil-Fortin/17605924 Neil Fortin

      Where can I get those shoes?

    • throwaneyeonthis

      Yummy.  I swear Robert Palmer is channeling through Mr. McGregor in the last picture. 

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Well, Ewan almost always looks good, but this elevates him into DAMN!  You WERQ that suit, honey!

    • Snailstsichr

      How did you know I needed a dose of pretty right now?? This so fits the bill. If I had a vote on the Nobel prize, you gents would have my vote because I instantly felt peaceful when I saw these pics.

    • julnyes

      Lovely as usual (would like to have seen a bit of sleeve at the cuff
      but that is minor) he works shaved and bearded with equal aplomb.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      I want shoes like that. Badly.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      He just gets better and better and better. Bastard.

    • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

      First time I’ve ever felt myself getting aroused at the sight of mens shoes. That Ewan McGregor is inside them just about takes my breath away.

    • http://www.facebook.com/aboutelle Ashleigh Boutelle

      I wanna be him when I grow up!

    • formerlyAnon

      Totally on board with the WERQ. My GOSH that suit is awesome, and I salute you guys for overcoming your grey-on-grey fatigue.

       I was not 100% wowed by the reflective metallic shoes last time I saw them on someone on this blog, but I am 110% wowed here.

    • CeeQ

      Crown him MAN OF THE DECADE for being able to rock silver freaking wing-tips!

    • decormaven

      Thanks be to Saint Hubbins, the Patron Saint of Quality Footwear. Damn fine shoes!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/J2VE4NE2FY2BP4QD2XOYKJGLPI Laura

      Ooooooh, that is one yummy WERQ…. {swooon}

    • Qitkat

      It is the shoes, isn’t it? Because WOWSA.
      Tie is too boring though.

    • mmc2315

      Yum.  Properly hemmed pants….

    • erinbinek

      I don’t love him, but those shoes are KILLA.

    • Trisha26

      Gorgeous and no more facial hair – YAY!

    • Kate4queen

      Exactly :)

    • up with pod people

      yes. also UNF.

    • frannyprof

      *licks drool off of chin*

    • Ana_ragu

      The only thing that interferes with my fantasy is the oh-so visible wedding ring on his finger. Sigh.

    • UglyTalents

      My menopause just reversed itself. Thanks to these pictures, I am ovulating again. A Hanukkah miracle. Thank you, Tom and Lorenzo.

      I want to marry him. And then just show him off.

    • elirt

      My gawd, he is aging so damn well.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      Those SHOES. That face. That suit. {LE SIGH.}

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/KBNJ6GJTXYEE6BON3WGK6KEGT4 Elizabeth

      He looks fantastic! Those shoes are freakin’ awesome! And we must admit the fact that another dude wearing this outfit (think Bradley Cooper or Gerard Butler) would look like a total douche. But Ewan totally WERQs it and works it. Sad to see the beard is gone, however. I thought he was adorable with a beard. 

    • littlemissstrange

      I don’t like it. I want him with fucked up hair and scruffy face with an artboy scarf and some boots. And a puppy. THAT shit is hot.

      But I can’t deny that he still has pretty eyes. And the shoes elevate the look a thousand times higher than what it would’ve been.

    • snarkykitten

      those shoes are made for looking up ladystars’ dresses

    • pax540

      Damn Gina. May I have a slice o’ that?

    • guest2visits

      Just Ewan with his usual charm.  I’m on board with the reflective footwear.

    • TieDye64

      Dayum, he looks GOOD! And I’m digging the shoes, too.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      OK, now I must go get a tub of ice cream and eat it.  Those shoes are so perfectly shined it hurts.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Cortney-Dean/100002491593625 Cortney Dean

      I know not one other man who could pull those shoes off. 

    • AnnaleighBelle

      The world is changed because you are made of ivory and gold. The curves of your lips rewrite history.

      Silver shoes and blue eyes.  He makes me happy to be of Scottish descent.

    • ankali

      Jesus, he’s aging well. I… wow. Wow.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1594250515 Kim Brightman

      How does he manage to dress better than 90% of the men out there with access to the same resources?

    • unbornfawn

      Lots of that dreamy sighing going around………….

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

      I’m not QUITE sold on the shoes. But the rest…. delicious.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

      Methinks T-Lo are blinded by the shoes.  And envy.  Tie point is visible under the jacket button and is crooked and hands in pockets for pictures.  They would’ve pointed those minor infractions by other manstars.  Not saying it’s not a WERQ though b/c DAY-UM!!!  : ] ~~~~

      Also, as much as I love the MCGregorbeard, this look required a shave, and the guy complied.
