Matt Smith in Dior

Posted on March 15, 2013

We have been subjected to eye-searing surrealist menswear this morning and now we feel we must cleanse our palates with the Real Deal.


‘Doctor Who’ star Matt Smith leaves the Dior party at Harry’s Ba in London.

Ah. That’s much better.

In other news, Doctor Who returns at the end of the month.

Don’t worry, darlings. We’ll get back to yelling at ladies in dresses shortly.

    • Tatiana Luján

      That poor tie!

    • PastryGoddess

      Well this is a fiiiiine way to start Friday!

      Thanks TLo

    • Alexandra Glorioso

      Ahhh! I cannot WAIT for Doctor Who!!

    • Jessica Blanchard

      That’s my Doctor.

    • Reneesance

      He’s adorable. His tie is all crooked but I love the fact that he’s using a tie clip, it just seems slightly retro and very him.

    • Patricia Gillett

      The hair! Love the hair!

    • Becca Cleary

      I hate his hair and I wish he had eyebrows. Thumbs down.

    • MilaXX

      This is what I love about Matty, he knows when to leave the hipster wear home and dress like a grown up. Even so, the cut of this suit is exactly what I would expect from him. LOVE the shoe. March 30, cannot come soon enough.

      • gabbilevy

        See, I think he usually looks goofy in formal settings, but here, he’s got it just right. Love him, counting the SECONDS till DW is back.

      • lovelyivy

        Why isn’t it March 20th yet? I am DYING to find out more about Clara Oswin Oswald!

        • Derek_anny

          Because BBC needed time for Neverwhere, first.

    • Emily Dagger

      He is one of those dudes that about half my friends have crushes on and I’ve gone “….him? Egg?”

      And now? This picture? I get it. I finally get it. Apologies, Lady Whovians. You’ve been right the whole time.

      • charlotte

        Thanks for that AD reference! I guess he’s funny or something.

      • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

        Ha! I just said the same thing before I read this. Hello Matt!

      • Bridget Smith

        It’s also hard to get if you don’t watch the show. He has the most adorable, expressive face – it’s so much more attractive in motion than in stills. I do, however, very much like this suit.

        • Jack Artagan Mackenna

          Totally agree. Something about the way he moves is not only attractive, but interesting.

      • Kenisha Hill Phillips

        Nope, still not a fan. And I adore the show. But he dresses well and is a fun guy.

    • thecitysleeps

      He is so pretty goddamn. And that suit fits him very well.

    • Sobaika

      The hair is a teensy bit too messy for such an otherwise perfect look, but maybe that’s just me. He looks fantastic overall.

    • Cathy S

      You know, I love Matt Smith and his hair, but it’s looking a bit icky here. Still mostly adorable though.

    • Carina

      Thank you. I’ve stopped laughing now.

    • Jennifer Ford

      I love him so much, and he has such fantastic personal style. Can’t wait for the new episodes!

    • Janet

      How I love that man!

    • Indigo54

      That hair is just crazy!

    • formerlyAnon

      Great example of how the clothes can – not *make* – but *perfectly set off* the man.

      And, to quibble since there’s little else to do, I applaud the return of the tie bar, but do these guys not look at their ties once they’re tied? (If then) So simple to adjust and so much more elegant if it weren’t scrunching the tie ever so slightly in at the side. (I told you it was a quibble.)

    • Pants_are_a_must

      God, his face is like everything British ever. He radiates “neurotic”.

      But that suit is so sharp, I love it. Too bad about that crooked tie clip.

    • Anathema_Device

      I saw the headline “Matt Smith in Dior” and did the gay gasp. A cute skinny guy in a skinny suit and tie makes me happy.

      • formerlyAnon

        “A cute skinny guy in a skinny suit and tie makes me happy.”
        You speak my truth.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        I made a noise that was somewhere between a high pitched squeak and a whoop.  I blamed it on the cat.

    • WendyD

      Matt Smith Matt Smith Matt Smith!
      The hair. The suit. How I love The Doctor.

    • PeggyOC

      I’d still rather have Eccelston pop out of the blue box (for sheer sex appeal) but I will say the 11th Doctor knows how to wear a suit.

    • Qitkat

      The tie clip looks like a hair pin. And that is the worst I have ever seen his hair.
      Who knew (see what I did there?) that an excellent well-fitted suit would help remove the stench of that pr show.
      Can’t wait for the return of The Doctor.

      • JP

        Yes, that tie clip looks weird. His hair I’m more inclined to forgive, b/c he’s Matt Smith and that’s his thing.

        If the hair was curly, wouldn’t he look like the love child of Lyle Lovett?

    • Caitrin

      He’s like a cross between Crispin Glover & Chris Isaak

      • Sara LaBatt

        I was going to go with kd lang and Lyle Lovett

    • Christie Belle

      lord child! I about had a hot flash

    • MajorBedhead

      Oh my goodness. He’s just a long, skinny drink of water when he’s in a suit. He should wear them all the time. And he’s not even MY Doctor, but wow. Yummy.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        Which is your Doctor?

        • MajorBedhead

          Ten. Always.

          • Eclectic Mayhem

            Yeah, I think David Tennant, Tom Baker and Matt Smith are duking it out right now – is it greedy of me to want three Doctors to be ‘my’ doctor?

            I have been known to criticize Ten for snogging practically every female he meets (am I watching Doctor Who or James T. Kirk?!) but I’ve been rewatching his seasons just lately and I have to admit that he’s completely irresistible. It’s not his fault a universe full of females also finds him irresistible!

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      And I finally get the attraction. Maybe he just needed a Dior bag in his hand the whole time.

    • Monique Jones

      What a great dresser.

    • jilly_d

      He does nothing for me, but he sure is wearing the hell out of that suit.

    • marlie

      I don’t have a huge crush on him like so many others, but DAMN can he wear a suit.

    • Andrea Lane

      I love it; I only wish that he wore bowties in public more often.

    • bertkeeter

      Hair is perfect!

    • David Gilbert

      Anyone tell me where he got his shoes?

    • Rand Ortega

      Yum. Me.

    • j_anson

      Wow, he looks like he’s not a pretentious douche! Go Matt!

    • j_anson

      Also, I’m really amused by his… handler? Matt’s all, “Ho hum, walkin’ along,” and the handler’s all “RUN MATT SAVE YOURSELF!” in that last picture.

      • formerlyAnon

        Ha! My thought was “gee, crushing on the Dr. or what? He doesn’t really seem to need that much hands on assistance, unless the lights are blinding.”

    • julnyes

      Matt is looking divine and I can’t wait for the new season! I have my fingers crossed they are bringing back all the actors who played The Doctor for the anniversary show!

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        Tom Baker (4) is the oldest surviving Doctor but both 2 and 3 had sons who are actors – I’m really hoping that Sean Pertwee plays his father’s character; he looks and sounds just like him.  I want all the Doctors and all the surviving companions.  All of them.

        • Sarah Grizzle

          I would be happy with only Donna because I am STILL NOT OVER IT

    • Kelley

      He’s so handsome! Thanks for posting these pics.

    • Dora K.

      He just persists in not being David Tennant, doesn’t he? What an asshole.

      Aw, he looks good in that suit, despite the ridiculous hair. And he’s a decent doctor — not his fault the writing’s been weak. I’m considering watching the new episodes, having skipped the last 2.5 seasons. Same writers but maybe a new companion will help.

    • MRC210

      His hair. Ick. It looks as though he rubbed KFC all over it.

    • commish24

      Matt Smith is making a film with Ryan Gosling. TLo will be over the moon.

      • Pterodactyl111

        WHAT? Is that true?? You just made my day.

    • librarygrrl64

      He does zero for me, but he IS a good dresser.

    • sockandaphone

      hes kinda butterface material for me but i can always appreciate a dude in a good suit

    • Frank Lithium

      The tie bar is too damn long. Other than that, yah!

    • ccm800

      ugly as fuck…but pull it off.
