WERQ: Zachary Quinto in McQueen at Cannes

Posted on May 24, 2013

DAMN, Spock.


Zachary Quinto attends the premiere of ‘All Is Lost’ during the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival in head-to-toe Alexander McQueen.

Alexander McQueen Leather Monk Strap Shoes

Alexander McQueen Skull-patterned Woven-Silk Bow Tie

We’re impressed.

Also: a little jealous.

We hate your neckbeard but it’s not going to prevent us from neck-rolling and snapping. You WERQ that killer tux, boy.

    Holy shit snacks. Where are my cigarettes? Sigh.

    • Um, yeah, I’ll be in my bunk,….

      • kmc1138

        I want to be BFFs with all three of you.

  • mjude

    he looks great but agree with tlo about the neckbeard (i dont get it)

    • random_poster

      Yes. Someone please please please show him how to use a razor before the next photo opp.

    • barbarienne

      I dunno, I think the neckbeard is working for him, in that it balances out the eyebrows (which I love. This is not a criticism of his eyebrows). Without the extra shadow going on around the neck, I suspect his face would look topheavy.

  • Rand Ortega

    There ya go! That’s my tasty Vulcan!

  • DAYUM! I have nothing bad to say about this outfit.

  • charlotte

    How do you say “suit porn” in Vulcan?

  • gabbilevy

    Logical Spock + that Knowing Look in the second-to-last photo = Does not compute. Love him. Le sigh.

  • ZQ has seriously aggressive body/facial hair. That stuff grows like bamboo, so I try to cut him slack on that point.
    That suit is FANTASTIC. He is FANTASTIC. Benedict Cumberbatch needed to spend the time he wasn’t beating Zach to a bloody pulp on the set of Star Trek, taking notes on how to dress.
    Also: love the shoes!

    • marlie

      I agree, he seems like a “hairy” guy, but he certainly could have taken the time to shave his neck as part of the rest of his grooming process. That facial hair didn’t pop up in the car on the way over to the red carpet.

      • Kate Kealey

        I second the motion that ZQ seems like a “hairy” guy, and I can deal with the stubble, but a neck beard is not really congruent with manicured eyebrows. Lose the neckbeard, face scruff can stay, and I think we’ve got a personal best here for him.

  • marlie

    ZQ looks AH-MAZING. I love the tux, and I I usually hate double breasted suits. All he has to do is shave the neck. Otherwise, perfection.

    ETA: I even love how the buttons match the texture of his lapel. {swoon}

  • jmorino08

    Neckbeard! Fie!

  • Eric Stott

    Neckbeard works on him

    • homofascist

      I totally agree. Obviously he is a hairy guy. I am sure if he doesn’t shave every day he probably has some degree of neckbeard. Hell, I wear a beard and I almost constantly have it – I just don’t feel like shaving sometimes!

      • homofascist

        And by sometimes I mean pretty much all of the time…

        • akprincess72

          My husband has it so I don’t mind it so much. I refuse to nitpick his grooming to a cellular level & he says nothing about how much my regular hair coloring costs. It works for us. =)

    • NOLA_gal

      I’m hearing the title song from Hair over and over in my head…
      “Don’t ask me why/ I’m just a hairy guy/ I’m hairy noon and night/ Hair that’s a fright/ I’m hairy high and low/ Don’t ask my why/ Don’t know..”

      • demidaemon

        Now that song is stuck in my head. Shame on you! 😉

  • Meh. He always looks like a serial killer to me.

    • littlemissstrange

      It’s part of his charm.

    • Sylar forever.

      • Derek_anny


      • Melissa Brogan

        Except when he’s all done up as Spock, I always think of him as Sylar. Until just now when I looked at his Wikipedia page and the photo of him in glasses makes him look cute and friendly! He just seems so intense without them.

    • UsedtobeEP

      Yeah, I can’t quite get the character he played on American Horror Story out of my mind, ever. (cold chill)

  • AnniNoone

    Daaaaaaang. That stubble is so rash-worthy I’m not even going to stroke out about the neckbeard. Quinto likes the boys, right? Lucky boys.

    • Right? His stubble looks so soft. I bet he grows a great full beard.

    • filmcricket

      But Jonathan Groff’s face looks so tender! I hate to think of it being all rashed up. 🙁

      I actually like a fellow with a beard, but the neck beard thing is right out. That aside, this is an amazing look.

  • He’s so fuzzy that I can tolerate the neckbeard, because it’s clearly the beginnings of a thick full beard (even if it’s just stubble), rather than scraggly uneven growth. I just want to rub my hands on his chin. I won’t though. But it’s tempting.
    Chic suit. I’m impressed with how well fitted the double-breasted jacket is – that’s a tough shape to pull off without looking like Thurston Howell. He looks all movie star.

    • Prince William could learn something how this looks.

  • MzzPants

    I loveloveLUV his current hair and the way it can go from James Bond to Punk Rock Bad Boy with the flick of a comb.

  • badass hair. a little edgy, a little “singin in the rain,” straight-up right-on.

  • He really is WERQing it. Very nice, cutey patooty.

  • That’s a lovely dinner jacket. I need about 1/4″ more shirt cuff showing though.

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    No one with a neck beard should get a WERQ…sorry to disagree guys. How flipping hard is it to shave your damned neck?

  • He needs an iron, sorry…

  • MilaXX

    Very minor quibble; I don’t like the rhinestone bowtie against the patterned lapels.

    • marlie

      They’re not rhinestones – they’re skulls! And when I realized that, I loved this look even more.

      • MilaXX

        Of course they are, it’s McQueen! It still triggers my OCD a little.

        • Bklynface

          I would love the heck out of that bowtie. Come to meeeeeee!

  • Impeccable fit.

  • This is perfection!

  • MissAmynae


  • thecitysleeps

    And just now I just realized why his (very hot) boyfriend is attracted to him. Ok so, that’s not right. But still, he looks amazing. Love the lapels, and the bowtie, and the shoes. So out of left field, but still perfection.

    • littlemissstrange

      My confusion is the opposite of yours, I don’t get what anybody sees in Jonathan Groff. Then again, I’ve never watched Glee. AND NO I DO NOT WANT TO.

      • akprincess72

        Me either!!!!!

      • thecitysleeps

        He’s much more than Glee though. He’s a very talented theater actor and very cute imo.

  • sagecreek

    Sigh. I’ve always loved the Spocks…

  • elemspbee

    New Spock’s awesome!

  • Mary229

    Yeah he’s hot.

  • Janet B

    I don’t care how hairy you are, not shaving for a RC event is lazy.

    • alyce1213

      It’s especially lazy when you’re swarthy like him.

  • MoHub

    Those shoes!

    • littlemissstrange

      Those shoes… that jacket… that face… swoon.

      • decormaven

        Really! Those shoes. Genuflecting at the altar of St. Hubbins, Patron Saint of Quality Footwear.

  • littlemissstrange

    Zachary Quinto wearing a skull-patterned bowtie….. too delicious for words.

    The neckbeard though….. can’t sign off on it.

  • Qitkat

    My favorite suit/bowtie/shoes combination in some time. Gorgeous.
    Not that offended with this particular neckbeard, Zach looks like he is one of those guys who need to shave twice a day to remain clean cut. It must get tiresome.

  • Millicent

    LOVE that bow tie and the shoes

  • IAmJ

    The shoes are amazing!

  • snarkykitten

    Nope, sorry. Neckbeard is automatic disqualification.


  • Anplica Fiore

    SHAVE please.

  • MikeW_Vegas

    Holy Vulcan ears!! YUMMY!!!!!

  • titaness25

    I lust for those shoes. Wonder if they come in a ladies size 3…

  • He looks fabulous! Well, except for the scruffy neck.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    Dang. Dude pulled it together on this one. I also hate neckbeard, but at least his is consistent and not weird and scraggly like some boy stars.

  • alyce1213

    Incredibly beautiful tuxedo, perfect fit, but no WERQ because of the grooming. He’s too swarthy not to shave for the RC.

  • I just can’t with Quinto. He’s this big, tall guy who insists on dressing like a man half his size and ten years younger. He should ship his entire wardrobe over to that kid on Glee, the one in the wheelchair.

  • Kirstin McAulay

    Must confess I’m now wondering how many times a day he had to shave for that pristine Spock look… no wonder he’s letting his face have a break!! (I know it was a year ago) Lucky lucky J.Groff

  • Joanne Abrams

    Finally, a suit that fits him and that bloated look from last week is gone. He is definitely rocking it!

  • guest2visits

    Great suit. I’m goin to agree for once about shaving the neckbeard, though.

  • NoGovernmentName

    Is there a reason why neckbeards are all the rage these days? His shoes are cool as shit, though.

  • jenno1013

    I just wish he would shave.

  • Nipple button alert!!! (Damn you, Mad Men!)

  • Buffy

    he does nothing for me, but I can agree that for the most part he looks good. I think it’s the patterned tie or the patterned lapels but not both.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Wow! Love the tux and the bowtie is perfection.

  • Annarosa

    SHAVE THAT NECK for God’s sake! Didn’t you learn anything from Chris Pine?

    Oh, who cares? You look handsome anyway.

  • Puckndc

    Live long and shave.

  • alyce1213

    I saw him last night on Chelsea Lately. He’s bright, funny, an easy conversationalist — totally adorable. And he seems to have shaved, he had less beard and neck hair than this picture, and he looked great! (They joked about his haircut — he said people told him he had Hitler hair.)

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Neckbeards make me itch all over. I can’t see anything but that neckbeard. It’s like we need to call him Pirate Neckbeard.

  • webslice33

    what’z wrong with his eyes?

  • Crystal

    OMG HE LOOKS WONDERFUL. I didn’t even notice the neckbeard, and my neckbeard radar is usually KEEN AND ANGRY.

  • Spock is serving up WERQ. Love the tux and tie, and the shoes are killer. The neckbeard is bothersome, but I’ll let that go for now.

  • Imasewsure

    NOT BORING!! Thank you ZQ for wearing something fun and different…love those shoes… love love that tie!!

  • Melissa Brogan

    He’s really pulling off that double-breasted tux! Hard look to get right.

  • Contralto

    Ugh, all I can see is the neckbeard. SHAVE.

  • paintedfish

    i was thinking the same thing about the neckbeard

  • StrandedFashionista

    Can this look and Moriarty’s ‘swimming pool’ look from the first season of ‘Sherlock’ have a suit-off? That would make me very happy.

  • Kane

    Unless you are close enough to make out the skulls (which would be close enough to get bitchslapped by ZQ’s bf, Jonathan Groff), that bowtie looks totally mid-America high school show choir uniform.

  • etselec

    I love that bowtie! If I could afford it, I’d give it to a particular guy I know.

  • Jake

    I think that neck beard makes him look SUPER studly….he is on my crush list now.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    He needs to lose the neckbeard and straighten out the bowtie, because it’s just the teensiest bit crooked. Other than that? LOVE!!

  • oohsparkley!

    That suit/tux is amazing on him. It makes him look taller and slimmer and mighty fine!
