Armie Hammer in Tom Ford at CinemaCon

Posted on April 19, 2013


Armie Hammer, recipient of the Male Star of Tomorrow Award, at the 2013 CinemaCon Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada in Tom Ford.

Tom Ford Spring 2013 Collection

If we’re being purely objective in our man-rating, we can admit that, looks-wise, he’s gorgeous, but a bit on the bland side for our tastes. He’s like a movie star version of Josh Dallas, from Once Upon a Time – who does absolutely NOTHING for us except irritate us with his room-temperature-oatmeal blandness. But something about Armie is really charming to us. Maybe because his name is Armie. Maybe because he has such a cute smile. Maybe because he’s pretty much rocking the shit out of that Tom Ford; something that so many other male stars, from Bradley Cooper to Justin Timberlake, have had trouble managing. Ford’s suits are very build-specific, and Armie’s just tall enough, with shoulders just broad enough, a waist just small enough, and a chest just big enough to be the perfect model for the brand. Tom Ford generally likes exotic-looking Euro-guys to model for him, but Armie would make a pretty good choice for a campaign.

Of course, this is just a long way of saying, “le sigh.”

  • Clueless_Jock

    He looks like Heath Ledger. Great suit.

    • H3ff

      I’m not seeing that.

  • decormaven

    Looking fine- he does justice to the suit. Wishing him the best with “The Lone Ranger,” but I’ve got some uncertain vibes about that flick.

  • He’s unbelievable good looking, and I agree, the suits fits him wonderfully.
    And I thought you’d comment on the playfulness of the shirt (it comes from the promo shoot) and the tie (nice touch!)

  • StellaZafella

    His hair is just the right amount of messy and the copper tie and pocket square pops – nicely done.

  • This is practically a men’s WERQ. Which might be a comment on the sad state of menswear on the red carpet, but let’s not taint his loveliness. The blue and orange combo is sharp and the checked shirt is a great pop of print.

    • MERQ? (That sounds kind of dirty, actually…)

    • gabbilevy

      Preach. I’m loving the color/print/texture combo going on here.

      • Oh yeah, that’s a silk knit tie, isn’t it? Mmmm.

      • Qitkat

        I would love for any one of my sons to wear a suit/shirt/tie combo this sharp.
        [pauses, searches for Tom Ford suits, faints at price…]
        oh well…

        • formerlyAnon

          All the money in the world wouldn’t fix my son’s disinterest. IF it were purchased, tailored, ironed and placed in his closet – and he were reminded to wear it – there’d still be a 50-50 chance that some element would be crumpled, missing, mis-handled or forgotten. You KNOW how I know that, right?

          • Qitkat

            Ditto 🙂

  • Janet B

    Can’t find a flaw.

  • MilaXX

    Cute, nice to see a man wearing something other than a white shirt.

  • What appeals to me about Armie is his personality. He’s a great interview, very friendly, charming, and willing to laugh at himself. I wish he would get better projects. And yes, he looks great in the suit.

    • Billie_Dawn

      Yeah, to me, that’s what sets him apart from all the other pretty-but-bland guys out there. He seems to have a cheeky quality (in a good way) that I find delightful. It’s nice to see an actor who keeps it professional but who clearly doesn’t take himself too seriously.

  • Agreed but I wish Tom Ford would move on from the heavy 70s influences that inform his menswear.

  • Sara L.

    Still mad he isn’t playing Finnick in the Hunger Games sequels. What a gorgeous hunk of man in a perfect suit. Le sigh, indeed.

    • filmcricket

      Oh man, yes. There’s someone from … Grey’s Anatomy? I think?… that the internet has decided should be Finnick, and the dude is unquestionably good-looking, but he’s not the golden boy Finnick is supposed to be. I really couldn’t figure out who ought to play the role (besides “Brad Pitt at 25”) but Armie here would be a good choice.

  • alyce1213

    Close to perfection. If I have any quibble at all, it’s that I’d prefer a larger knot in the tie, maybe a full Windsor — the collar is wide-set and a little too much collar band shows. That’s a very small quibble.

  • He seems to have one of those chameleon faces. I would not be interested at all in the “Armie Hammer” in this picture but the “Armie Hammer” in The Lone Ranger gives me the vapors.

  • Beardslee

    He’s clean shaven!!!

    • That was one of the first thing I noticed. Other male stars.. TAKE NOTE! 😉

  • ChaCha_70


  • charlotte

    He looks like he is in an ad for the award.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Well groomed, nicely styled. Good posture. Breath of fresh air. So tired of hunched, hands-in-pocket, neck bearded guys thinking a $5000 suit can do all the work for them on the RC.

  • Little_Olive


  • Julie

    le sigh is right.

  • aeb1986

    I always wondered what you meant when you said male celebs looks like bankers on the red carpet. I was never sure how you could wear a suit and NOT look like a banker. NOW i get it. Love this look.

  • Spiffy.

  • paginatrix

    No wonder J. Edgar Hoover fell so in love with him.

  • par3182

    Compared to the model, it looks like a completely different outfit.

  • Looks good…would have liked a wider and more important tie…a la FORD!

  • butterflysunita

    This, you dirty neckbearded Home Depot-dressed male stars, is how you do it. Male stars, it’s part of your job to look good for the red carpet. Put in a little effort.

  • mmc2315

    Refreshing look with the shirt + tie choice.

  • I’m getting a “Young Alec Baldwin” vibe.

  • spinachleaf

    It doesn’t hurt that he comes from a billionaire family.

  • filmcricket

    I prefer the tie on the model, but it probably wouldn’t fit Mr. Hammer’s all-American good looks. He is an attractive fellow, for sure, but I see what TLo mean about the blandness. He’s one of those folks who’s almost too perfect – call it the Theron Effect – but he’s young still. He could yet develop into an interesting screen presence. In the meantime, he sure knows how to wear a suit.

  • RedRaven617

    First thought… he’s cleanly shaved! That alone is worth a swoon from me. What gorgeous eyes.

  • Say YES to the tie!! Takes the whole outfit from “fun” to “fashion forward”. And lookie there—a male star with no facial hair at all—how refreshing, how clean, how smooth, how sexy, and how much do I want to feel that cheek?

  • Inspector_Gidget

    He’ll probably look even better in 5-10 years.

    I feel a bit sorry for him as the “star” of the upcoming “JOHNNY DEPP AS TONTO IN TONTO and the Lone Ranger” movie.

    • StellaZafella

      I’ve read accounts that “Johnny’s being Johhny and they’re both liking working together…”
      I’m hopeful because the last time Johnny did his “thing” with a picture I loved that one, too.

  • gsk241

    All that, and he remembered to shave!

  • JasmineAM

    I cannot believe his parents named him Armie Hammer. Are they heirs to the Arm & Hammer brand?

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      So, I’m a bit bored on my lunch break and looked his info up in Wikipedia. Apparently his father’s name is Armand Hammer (which appears to be a family name going back a few generations), so Armie might be a nickname/shortened version of Armand. Still hilarious!

      • filmcricket

        Armand Hammer was a billionaire oil tycoon. He actually bought shares in Arm & Hammer even though there was no connection, because it the coincidental name tickled him so much. From what I understand, Armie grew up in the Caymans (tax shelter?).

  • C. C. Winslow

    Don’t normally like pretty boys, but he’s super duper hot here.

  • Imasewsure

    I like this but I love the tie on the model. There is something about him I really like too and I can’t figure it out. He’s kind of a prettier Judge Reinhold… bland but dunno there is something promising there

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Serving up Highland Park High realness. I don’t want to do anything naughty with him, but I sure wouldn’t mind looking like him. He has those sparkly pretty eyes that every child of a Texas beauty pageant mom has.

    • formerlyAnon

      Highland Park in Dallas?

      • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

        In the great and mighty Republic of Texas, land of big hair and fried things.

        • formerlyAnon

          I lived on the western outskirts of Oak Lawn in the ’80s, and worked a 2nd job as lowly caterer’s help at a plethora of Highland Park parties. Seems like a hundred years ago . . .

          • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

            there’s still some great houses in the HP. however, there’s a lot of mcmansions crammed into the standard small city lots. i used to live in western oak lawn too, near the tollway/lemmon.

          • formerlyAnon

            McMansions: the curse of our times, as far as housing trends go. I await the boom in downsizing them when people get tired of heating/cooling 1500 square foot of house per resident. (I know. I’m probably delusional.)

  • nannypoo

    He’s adorable. He also shaves, knows how to deploy hair products, and is able to stand upright in a suit without putting his hands in his pockets. Well done.

  • warnerave

    i can’t with his tie…

  • TheAmericaness


  • Puckndc

    THAT is how it’s done!!! ADORABLE with a capitol A

  • ccm800

    aw smookie papookie! he’s adorable.

  • prettybigkitty

    He’s like the boy Cinderella of Tom Ford suits. Not too small, or too big. Fits just perfectly.

    • demidaemon

      Don’t you mean Goldilocks? Although, he as Cinderella amuses me in my imagination.

  • Sara__B

    So handsome. So dapper. (I’ve got a much-needed smile on my face now.)

  • He doesn’t do anything for me, but he’s ROCKING that suit, shirt and tie combo.

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    “le sigh”ing right along with you…

  • Love the pocket square. Delightful to see a Tom Ford not going to waste.

  • But you have no idea what his hem looks like.

  • formerlyAnon

    My, how can such a healthy young man do so much nothing at all for me? The better to mix up the gene pool, I presume. Go off, blandly pretty one, and find someone to call you manly. There will be plenty a-such.

    The unfortunate side effect is that this lovely suit just makes me think of the graduation suit your more well-to-do cousin’s mother forced him to wear, and which ended up balled up in a grocery bag in the car trunk when he changed for the after party. And eeeewww when you learn two of your friends wound up making out with him out back, before he left with a girl from a different high school.

  • MissAmynae

    Frozone: “Armie, where is my super suit?’
    Armie: “I’m wearing it, and it is fabulous.”

  • Wait-he’s getting an award for being a star “tomorrow”? How does that work? Is it like Most Likely To Succeed in the yearbook?

  • le sigh indeed. He sure does it for me. I brought the kids to see Mirror, Mirror last year and fell in love. Thanks for my new desktop background boys.

  • He’s adorable.

  • Le sigh.

  • He also has an amazing voice. The timbre in his voice and his height and build and how good he looks in clothes…*sigh*

  • Carly Warnock

    Mmm. I saw him in that dreadful Mirror Mirror movie, he was quite delicious in it.

  • YoungSally

    I stood next to his (is it a dress form when it’s for a guy) at a friend’s costume shop (she built the costumes for Snow White)…..that man is a big drink of water…..

  • Personal Best?!

  • “Armie Hammer in Tom Ford” just sounds SO porn!

  • It’s funny how hard the model is blue-steeling all over the place, and Armie is just one big “aww, shucks, ma’am,” and the both look great in the suit!

  • I can’t see the bottom of the pants, but I’ll assume the fit is just right.
