      I like the formal slippers, but the tux appears to be a half size too small, and I just cannot with the Keebler elf hair.

      • kimmeister

        I laughed until I remembered that the Keebler elves wear hats. 

    • PastryGoddess

      I don’t know what going on with the hair?  

      There’s artfully tousled and then there’s each strand of hair individually manipulated for maximum exposure.

      • OrigamiRose

        He has taken his cue from Hugh Grant in About a Boy, spending four units of time per day having his hair “artfully disheveled.”

      • NinaBoo

        He should look to Halle Berry for styling help if he’s going to insist on wearing his hair like this.

      • DesertDweller79

         When I saw him my first thought was, “Wow, I wonder how long it took to do his hair?”

      • http://frederickvegetarian.wordpress.com sixgables

         It’s like he thought we wouldn’t recognize him without that horrid Marius hair.

      Third picture made me laugh out loud. He looks like he was in the middle of doing “Blue Steel”.

      • Stuck_on_Mute

        I had the exact same response to the third pic – that Blue Steel needs some work.

        I don’t know what it is, but this guy totally does it for me. 

    • Nicholas

      I’m reaching a point where I just say “well at least they didn’t come with a friggin’ neckbeard”.

    • Mazenderan

      Sorry – but the silly poseur slippers annoyed the bejesus out of me.

    • MissMariRose

      I’m now completely convinced that his upper and lower lips have the same magnetic polarity, so that they repel each other and prevent him from ever fully closing his mouth.

      (Nice suit, btw.)

      • SRQkitten

        That would explain Kristen Stewart as well.


    • IAmJ

      Is his hair auditioning for One Direction?

      • http://twitter.com/OhFaerieNuff Laurie S. Neilsen

        I think his hair is auditioning for Every Direction.

    • kat89

      WTF with that hair? Enough already!

    • StellaZafella

      Hands deep in the pockets = many point off.

      The hair looks like his Proctologist hit a nerve.

    • janiemary

      He and Halle Berry have the same hair stylist!!

      • GinAndPopcorn

         And that hair stylist would be Mr. Heat Miser.

    • Daktari100

      I would normally like that hairstyle, but not so much on the red carpet.  Bed head looks good with a hoodie and jeans, but not with a tuxedo.

    • Janet B

      Mr. Redayne, you are too old for that hair style.

    • MilaXX

      He looks like dork. Hate his hair.

    • Zippypie

      He still has that douchey hair going.  STOP IT.

    • krelnick

      Gih.  That hairstyle is officially known as “pulled-through-a-fence-backward.”

    • SerpentsDance

      He looks like he ought to be on the History Channel ranting about how aliens built the pyramids.

    • formerlyAnon

      I hate those slipper shoes. On anyone. Hate.

      His hair is also deluded, in my opinion. Tux is fine, but if I saw it clearly enough, I preferred the jacket he wore on stage. 

      But really, he’s on my list of the intrinsically adorable. (And his girlfriend’s dress was darn good – – better than many of the nominees.)

    • Corsetmaker

      He reminds me of a boy at primary school who I had to dance with at the school party and who had freakishly dry hands.Sort the hair out Eddie, you aren’t a Regency buck, it looks silly.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      Doesn’t he always look as though he is about to say something that would make you want to smack him?

      • Nelliebelle1197


    • EEKstl

      Is his jacket blue and his pants black?  I know the hair is strange, but because I find him charming normally I still find him charming here.

    • Pennymac

      Irrational celebrity hate list status is now solidfied. Douchey hair, open mouth, Hugh Hefner slippers. No.

    • sk8tfan

      Eddie, Eddie…the Royalists have been out of power in France for hundreds of years now. Time to update the do.

    • bxbourgie

      You know what bothers me about this hair?  Everything! But mostly that the sides are too long.  I just saw My Week With Marilyn and although the hair is the same, it was tolerable because the sides didn’t look like some hairstylist was standing in front of him working each little side wisp of hair into a perfect little half pin curl.  It’s ANNOYING!  I need him to stop because he’s so adorable, but that hair!  Other than that I have no issues with this tux.  I even sorta like the shoes.  

    • Carly Warnock

      Everyone is hating on him but I still like him. Like the slippers, love the very skinny trousers, the hair is a little overdone but he’s hot nevertheless. I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating crackers. 

      • formerlyAnon

        I hate his shoes, hair and understand why his posing offends. Nonetheless, he registers hot on my radar.

        • Carly Warnock

          I understand it, I just still like it. I will hang my head in shame.

    • jonnyf8

      and he sings too . . .  c’mon there’s not a lot wrong here that can’t be overlooked.

    • PrunellaV

      This guy has been pushed on us for so long now that I have to admit he’s starting to grow on me.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

       A: He obviously drove there in a convertible with the top down. B: He should have taken his hands out of his pockets. C: Cool shoes, and the tux is fine, but rather standard.

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

      Does this dude HAVE to sport the Bazooka Joe hairstyle on the Oscar red carpet?  Jesus!  I’m pretty sure they make combs and product in the U.K., Eds!

    • quiltrx

      I thought he looked adorable (unlike a lot of my fellow BK’s I LURVE his hair)!  But I was a little disappointed he didn’t BRING THE CRAY…I was hoping for velvet or plaid in the tux department!

    • boweryboy

      Hate the hair.  Hate the shoes.

      Put the rest on a platte and I’ll eat it up.


    • http://twitter.com/emilyf007 emily

      not sure why he was cast in Les Mis. His singing was…..less than desirable last night. Had to turn off my TV.

      • formerlyAnon

        To be fair, there were a lot of . . . less than desirable vocal moments in Les Mis. Even the better singers (IMO) weren’t really up to the demands of the music/emotions. 

    • Linderella

      Sorry, but I still LOVE his hair.  But he has got to get those hands out of his pockets!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=13805908 Kelly Sowers

      TLo once referred to him as a “goofus”. I think that pretty much sums it up.

    • nannypoo

      What is with this hair? It’s been out of style since, oh I don’t know, maybe the French Revolution. Enough already.

    • A Reeves

      Now I remember who Eddie Redmayne reminds me of–Tin Tin! I remember him fondly.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      I like the gold shirt studs. Everything else can go home until he’s thought about what he did.

    • decormaven

      He will never be seen on the RC without stuffing his hands in his pockets, or without five pounds of pomade in his hair. Dear boy, try changing it up in both posture and grooming. Your five seconds in the spotlight are about to expire. [Side note: is the woman to the right of him in the red gown wearing a bedazzled fanny pack? I know PR flacks work on the fringes of the RC to direct & assist their clients, but I think there’s a bit better way to carry emergency gear than this.]

    • Beardslee

      He is wearing classic footwear for a tux, I believe.
      I bet his hair looks so much better when he wakes up in the morning than after it has been ‘styled’.

    • http://remedialstitcher.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      The hair! AAAGGGGHHHH! Seriously, what’s with that hair. It’s like it’s got a mind of its own.

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      It is to laugh!!
      WOW what a hoot…probably not what he intended, though.

    • BaddestMotherEver

      There’s something about Eddie.

    • http://robot-heart.tumblr.com heartbot

      He looks 1000% less douchey when he smiles.

    • formerlyAnon

      It’s kind of pathetic that I had to go visit this post and the Daniel Day-Lewis post because TLo haven’t had time to post any of the men (yes, in their relatively boring tuxedos and in the rare and usually lame attempts to be ‘different’ with the tuxedo).

      And even worse – rather nervy, indeed – that I’m whining about it, here on the best post-Oscars blog.

      But, so it is.

    • UglyTalents

      I hate his hair-do!

    • http://twitter.com/Soozables Susan Lloyd

      I refer to Eddie as my secret boyfriend, and would love to give him tiny kisses on each one of his freckles; however, did the Bitter Kittens see Aaron Tveit (AKA Enjolras) on the RC?  Boy freaking brought it!  He was a boy WERQ for sure!

    • guest2visits

      I loved him with the cast of Les Miserables on stage – one of the best moments.  He looked good to me.
