Boy, That’s Not Your Look: Zachary Quinto

Posted on April 16, 2013

Zachary, we love ya, you big, rectangular hipster queen, but at some point we’re going to have to have a conversation about flattering proportions.


Zachary Quinto attends the 2013 MTV Movie Awards in a Dsquared2 single-button suit.

Until that day, we leave you with this to ponder: These are the exact opposite of flattering proportions for your big, gay, rectangular, hipster bod.  Also: consider the idea that your big gay head probably doesn’t need an extra four inches of hair.

But hey, we love your suit and shoes! We just don’t think anything going on with this look is flattering from a proportions perspective. Think about what we said Zach; won’t you?

    ‘Big Gay Head’ *drops dead*
    Looks like somebody had a growth spurt over the winter!

  • mrspotts66

    why is he wearing a suit in the size made for a 12yo tween boy?

    • DeebaCee

      He looks like Pee-wee Herman

      • MoHub

        Peewee wore it better. Besides, if you’re going to do that, you need the white bucks.

      • H2olovngrl

        Thank you! I couldn’t figure out why “Tequila” by The Champs came into my head upon looking at the pictures, and then there you were to make it all clear for me!

  • Awww, he looks like a pastel Frankenstein. Bless his heart.

    • HILAR.

    • drdarke



      Give Robert Downey, Jr. his ill-fitting suit back now, Spock….

    • JosephLamour

      I love you.

  • jmorino08

    But he’s just so darn cute!

  • SewingSiren

    I like the light blue on a guy. But the suit is too small.

  • Diego!

    Awful look. AWFUL Hair too! He is gay and he doesn’t know what to wear and look good? WTF? O_O Hire someone to help you out, this outfit is terrible.

  • Chartreusite

    as a possesor of a big gay head, I heartily concur on the haircut. in what world does that seem like a good idea? im years younger than him but even I know that wont work.

    • As a fellow possessor of a big gay head, it kills me that I’m pretty much stuck with the same close-cropped hair I settled on almost 20 years ago, but pictures like the above are a helpful reminder that sometimes you need to stick with what works, even if you’re tired of it. -T.

      • Chartreusite

        It does suck because there arent very much options in mens hairdo. I feel your pain, sir.

        • Courage, my big-headed brother.

          • Chartreusite

            bless, brother T.

          • Melizmatic

            You do realize that the phrase “big gay head” is now stuck in my head, and I’m going to be walking around my office all day giggling to myself like a mad woman.

            Thanks for contributing to my lunacy, TLo!


  • lrober03

    He cannot handle the high water pants. I do like the shoe and sock combo though. Maybe he just wanted to show them off

  • Boy, the MTV movie awards seems to be bringing out the worst in our celebs, doesn’t it?? Train wrecks all around.

    • drdarke

      What about the CMA Awards, @facebook-1208138556:disqus ?

      I swear, I never saw a truer indication that money can’t buy taste….

  • Love me some Zack. He needs to get out of that tragically I’ll fitting suit. C’mere, sweetie, let me help you with that,…

  • formerlyAnon

    Are we SURE someone didn’t just send him the wrong suit? (Any stylist involved should be fired. The point is to make the client look GOOD. Not like a slightly confused doofus.)

  • Apocalipstick Now Redux

    From two inches of shoulder up and two inches of ankle down, I love it. It’s all that unflattering wrinkly too small stuff in the middle that’s the problem.

  • Put some glasses on him and he’d be a dead ringer for Jm J Bullock.

    • Mismarker

      Oh, yes! He was Monroe on that show. Loved him!

    • H2olovngrl

      One of the original “big gay heads”.

  • This short ‘n’ tight trend for men’s suits is getting ridiculous. You can button a jacket without cutting off circulation, fellows! We’ll all know you weren’t pigging out on In ‘n’ Out Burger, we promise!

    • VictoriaDiNardo

      I’ve started thinking of this as “The Thom Brown Effect”. Just because he can make a proportion distortion (!) look cool, doesn’t mean you can just make any old suit small and have it look okay. And also, it needs to be impeccable, as in, pressed.

  • Imasewsure

    Appreciate the effort but yes, none of this works on him. Like it all just on another wigstand

  • Judy_S

    Strong affirmation of nerd credentials here.

  • I fully support the hair since I sport the same ‘do…but the suit is a bit rough. Love the color and the shoes…slim but not skin tight should be the norm.

  • lobsterlen

    Will he be staring in a movie about Devo? Put a flower pot on his head and be done with it. Whip it Whip It Good!

  • Tatiana Luján

    I don’t think the color is good on him either.

  • Also, I think he may have to accept that he is a hairy boy and that any stubble is going to totally take over his face. He needs to be properly clean shaven.

  • Laurel

    He needs to hire some heteros.

    • drdarke

      Look at the spread from last week with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in mix-a-suit and say that, @disqus_uRxEiGE2sw:disqus !

  • What’s with the socks?

  • I feel like some of these photos are distorted – in the close-up his face looks really long, but much shorter in the full-bodies. It’s weird.
    I’m not sure I would have recognized him – the mixture of that hair with that suit makes him look like a 1960/70ss sleazy lounge singer with mafia ties.

  • Beardslee

    If I were his mother, I’d be hustling him to the store because he has grown out of his little boy suit.
    I don’t think that was the effect he or his stylist was going for.

  • If this suit had fit him well, it – a sky blue suit – would have been a knockout. This is so his look, and he messed it up.

  • Janet B

    He ought to buy a sweater, or shirt in that color and leave the tiny suit to someone else.

  • MoHub

    I don’t see it as a proportion problem; I see it as a suit that’s at lest 4 sizes too small.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    As a science officer, Spock always wore blue…but just on the top.

  • andreawey

    sleeves, pant legs too short (I know it’s hipster but it looks bad) and hair looks like a 90’s rapper….. booo….

  • Snailstsichr

    Love the shoes! keep them and start over.

  • How does “gay” describe his body or his head? Why talk about his “big gay head”? Why not just talk about his “big head”? The proportions wouldn’t be any better if he were straight, would they? I admire him for coming out, but the reason so many other stars don’t come out is because they know that once they do, that will be all anyone will fixate on.

  • RinPauler

    I’m shaking my head in disgust like Nina when she’s forced to look at something cracktastic and then forced to praise that mess later.


  • MilaXX

    And like Zoe he was on stage looking like this

  • Crow Winters

    Well, regardless. I’ll flatter his proportions any day.

  • Melizmatic

    I can’t with those tragic socks.

    I just can’t.

    And yes, out of all that wrongness; that’s what leaped out at me first…

  • Kyle Crawford

    Did he at least win the Morrissey look alike contest ?

  • the wrinkles bother me more than the proportions :/

  • He’s a good looking man but this is all wrong: wrong color, wrong pants, wrong hair.

  • marilyn

    Jacket too small, pants too short. Colors questionable. Even a wacko hairdo won’t save this.

  • Kenisha Hill Phillips

    Dryer Shrinkage Realness

  • YoungSally

    I am seeing Morrissey in his Easter suit

  • FloridaLlamaLover

    At least Zacky-Babes has the eyebrows to kinda-sorta balance out the extra hair heighth!

  • Trisha26

    Forrest Gump Chic.

  • Yawn. Typical, LA attention seeking.

    • not_Bridget

      Quinto makes his living acting–in front of a camera or onstage. Starring in a blockbuster requires him to make public appearances.

      Most of us question his particular choices here, not his presence on a red carpet. Comes with his job….

  • oldbobbydraper

    head to toe AWFUL.

  • Puckndc

    Pee Wee Herman…..’nuff said!!

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    Try using rationality the next time you pick your outfit Spock!

  • littlemissstrange

    The suit doesn’t fit him right and he does have kind of a pointy head, but I appreciate the pseudo-Morrissey thing he’s got going on. He just needs to realize he’s not a stickboy anymore. He a MAN.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    What, did he run through the sprinklers and then spend the afternoon in a tumble dryer? Or did he miraculously grow overnight? What the hell?

  • murt

    Funny because Nimoy always looked great in blue, but ZQ really doesn’t.

  • AndreaSkates

    It’s like someone colorized The Addams Family, and here’s Lurch answering the door.

  • librarygrrl64

    Uh oh. Looks like someone didn’t read the care instructions on the laundry label. Dry clean only, Zach.

  • DesertDweller79

    I just did a total Samantha when I saw this. I said, out loud, “Ooh, honey. No.”

    Shoes are cool, though.
