Dan Stevens at 2013 CFDA Awards

Posted on June 05, 2013

Oh, COUSIN MATTHEW. REALLY? 

 

Former ‘Downton Abbey’ star Dan Stevens.attends the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards at Lincoln Center in New York City.

We were fine with the whole thing until we got to the bottom, you silly man. Stop trying to make Dan Stevens look hip. It only makes Dan Stevens look silly.

      No. No, no, no. I blogged about my crush on him. It’s gone now.

      • formerlyAnon

        Don’t worry. I’ve filled in your spot. It’s like the passing of the Olympic Torch or something.

    • Anplica Fiore

      The expression on his face doesn’t help either…

    • michael tanner

      whats up with the turkey face?

    • TSkot

      And he was so handsome on Downton. What has happened??

      • Kate Andrews

        Extreme weight loss for a movie role. But there’s no excuse for those shoes!

        • j_anson

          What movie role is it? I was seriously starting to worry about an eating disorder (not that he looks unhealthy per se, but that’s an awful lot of weight he’s lost.)

          • Kate Andrews

            He plays a drug dealer — Liam Neeson is starring in it. Called A Walk Among the Tombstones.

      • Vickiefantastico

        I was just going to post that! How can someone look so good on screen and so terribly awful on the red carpet??? I don’t get it, I tell ya!

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Oh those SHOES! Those are pretty hiddy, actually. And completely, utterly wrong, not only for the junior partner suit, but for Mr Stevens.

      • charlotte

        From further away they look like he stepped into (and then out of) a dung pile.

    • fiddlecub

      Worst. Scrolldown. Fug. Ever.

      • Alyssa

        While this is bad, I still give Thomas Jane the worst scrolldown fug for the time he wore the chicken feet. I did audibly gasp at this though!

        • mrs. charles

          I gasped as well! It scared the cat off my lap.

    • AlexisPayne

      Scroll down audible gasp of horror… Made my coworkers heads turn.

      • majorbedhead

        Heh. I’m glad I’m alone in the office, because I shouted “Oh good lord, those shoes are AWFUL!”

    • cowper

      Worst. Shoes. Ever.

    • thecitysleeps

      What the fuck happened to him? I liked you better when you were blond, chubby and less arrogant, Mr. Stevens.

    • Charlotte

      The older, dark-haired Malfoy brother.

    • beebee10

      Those shoes are pure Dandy!

    • WendyD

      MAKE IT STOP. I HATE IT.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      I used to think Cousin Matthew was so cute, that ship has sailed :(

    • MilaXX

      NOT HIS SHOES! – Send those to Alan Cummings where they will look witty and hip.

      • Spicytomato1

        Yes, I could see AC rocking them along with a kilt.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I love the shoes and you correct, they belong on Alan Cummings.

      • Cordelia_Gray

        Yep, Alan Cummings can do no wrong.

    • hughman

      It’s like talking to the smug car salesman who fails at being friendly then looking down and seeing HE’S TURNING INTO A LIZARD BEAST. TELL HIM YOU’RE JUST LOOKING, GRAB A FREE DONUT AND RUN!

      • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

        AGAIN. AGAIN you make me spew my tea. What is this love fest I have for you Hughman?

    • Griffinqueen

      I appreciate what he was trying to do–add a dash of flair to a business suit. It just wasn’t the right kind of flair.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      Scrolldown FUG!!!!!

    • Ozski

      I liked him better blonde and doughy too. And, is that a chin-implant I see? Or just weight loss? Don’t like. Shoes = Horrid.

    • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

      Hahahahaha. I feel like it should work, since a woman in a simple suit and blouse with floral shoes would, but he looks ridiculous. Now, Alan Cummings would make those shoes sing.

    • Chuck Barthelme

      Great suit, but boring shirt and tie. Should have gone with more traditional shoes, and added a cool shirt/tie, possibly a pocket square if he wanted to go the dandy route. Because those shoes are so not working.

    • PastryGoddess

      This picture has made my Wednesday. It may have made my whole week in fact

    • Amanda Herriott Welliver

      Cousin Matthew becomes Toy Story Jessie…

    • Ramon Figueroa

      I actually gasped (and not in a nice way) when I got to those mottled monstrosities.

    • lalahartma

      Gross. What is he doing with his mouth?

    • julie

      I thought someone vomited on his shoes

    • majorbedhead

      Why does he never smile? In every photo here, he looks like he smells something stinky. It’s probably those shoes. Jesus, those are awful, and I’m a fan of funky shoes.

    • Nicholas

      I literally heard a record scratch in my head, when I reached the shoes.

    • etselec

      Removed from my List.

    • siriuslover

      at least he shaved off that stupid goatee thing he was sporting. Still hate the hair. The shoes are just ridic.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      Someone help me. I WANT to like those shoes, but can’t think of an outfit that might make them work. Clearly this isn’t it – but does such an outfit exist?

      Brown corduroy jeans with something. Or dark denim, crisp white shirt and some sort of maroon blazer?

      • Patrick Cleary

        Yes, a brown velvet suit worn by someone who can carry it off. They’re totally awesome shoes, but not with that suit at all. Give him some points for trying something new, though.

    • sk8tfan

      Those shoes look like they’re leftover from Rorschach’s costume in Watchmen.

    • jhedman

      Who dropped paint all over his shoes on the way to the event?

    • decormaven

      Those shoes are all kinds of wrong. He’s stepped on the shreds of my Cousin Matthew love now.

    • GillianHolroyd

      I’ve seen a photo recently where his hair looked blonder, his face was more relaxed, and you could glimpse the Cousin Matthew within, fighting to emerge but sadly he’s been locked away again.

      • Chris

        Fantastic screen name. I picture you lounging around barefoot by your deconstructed 60’s Christmas tree with Pyewackett.

        • formerlyAnon

          Yes, it’s one of my favorite screen names hereabouts. Glad I’m not the only one.

    • Lois Cameron

      NOBODY loves a flock pattern more than me, but they look awful on him.

    • aglorios

      What the hell happened?

    • Neil Fortin

      Love the shoes just not on him. dark slim denim crisp perfect white.shirt and a brown dress belt those shoes would be killer!

    • kolokOlchik

      scrolldown fug

    • somebody blonde

      WHAT ARE THOSE SHOES. DOES NOT COMPUTE.

    • marlie

      Those shoes hurt my eyes. Otherwise, the suit looks rumpled, and a tiny bit too big. But it’s a great color.

    • GorgeousThings

      Whoa! Don’t do that to me before I’ve had my afternoon caffeine hit!

    • crash1212

      Ugly shoes, but at least he ditched the hideous goatee he was sporting for so long.

    • Mona_Visa

      BJ Novak.

      Also: I know he’s English, but does he have really bad teeth or something? Why is he trying so hard not to smile?

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

      • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

        and times that by 16 zillion billion. Plus an extra TRILLION ZILLION for the shoes..

        Is he determined to lose weight until he has no cheeks left, also too?

    • http://www.facebook.com/aboutelle Ashleigh Boutelle

      show some teeth, man!

      • leftcoastpickle

        I know, right? What is with the pursed mouth?

    • formerlyAnon

      Those shoes are so dreadful that they’re just silly. They could look appropriate, but with a far more boho and flamboyant ensemble than he’s wearing. One that’s got a streak of authentically down ‘n dirty to it.

      No surprise that I prefer the very thin Mr. Stevens to Cousin Matthew, but that hair is not quite right for the look. Maybe longer? less smoothly sculpted? I suspect it’s just fine in casual moments. (Give us a grin, sweetie.)

    • Ben Smith

      Oh honey. No. Whichever queen talked you into those shoes did you wrong. Find them and throw your phone at them. Also your suit jacket is too big.

    • leftcoastpickle

      That was a fun scroll down! hahahahaha! funny!

    • http://surelysonsy.blogspot.com/ Jessica | Surely Sonsy

      Yuk. That’s all I got. Dear Matthew has fallen from grace.

    • appliquer

      LOL – I thought he looked pretty good until I scrolled down and saw the shoes!

    • Carla_Charlton

      He looks really uncomfortable.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      He looks scared. I’d be scared too if I were him – wearing those shoes and then showing up on TLo’s site…

    • Ruthie O

      This is definitely “smell the fart” posing.

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      I actually like the shoes, just not with that suit, and I’m so not feeling the scowl. Still, those eyes. <3.

    • Tuneful54

      I don’t even recognize him. He looks rather sinister and alien, from the vacuous blue eyes down to the alien-outgrowth feet. Total success of a charm-ectomy.

    • detregnerikke

      Ugh, go away, low-rent-version-of-Jonathan-Rhys-Meyers.

    • Damien W

      Why bother to get so skinny if you’re going to cover it with crap suits like that?

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Still Tom Green’s little brother I see. And I can’t tell if those shoes are nice or ugly.

    • CeeQ

      Cousin Matthew just pissed on the grave of Sybil. Metaphorically. With those shoes.
      GAH.

    • SignLadyB

      Sigh, he is so much handsomer with blonde hair. And I can’t get behind the shadow of a mustache and beard either. Guess he’ll always be cousin Matthew to me. And yeah, those shoes???????? Still, his eyes almost redeem the rest.

    • Puckndc

      Gack!!!!…he must be getting some bad advise..he looks DREADFUL!!!

    • nannypoo

      I think Dan Stevens looks kind of silly from the ankles up, too. His prissy facial expressions worked on Downton Abbey. I wish him the best of luck everywhere else.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      How many JLo’s had to die to make those shoes?

    • CommentsByKatie

      Pete Campbell, your shoes are weird!

    • dalgirl

      Sleeves look RIDIC.

    • Contralto

      I’m still not speaking to him. I will, however, say HA! HA! HA! at the smirk and the Dead J-Lo Shoes.

    • demidaemon

      I know. He’s all, “These super cool shoes totally make up for my borderline banker suit. Right? Right?!”

    • Imasewsure

      I’d be so insulted if some celeb showed up at my event wearing something this stupid. Hopefully the promoters have bad taste too…

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      from a distance, those shoes look like they have a disease. don’t want them near my feet, thank you.

    • EEKstl

      I wish he were still (relatively) fleshy and blond.

    • Cordelia_Gray

      Why does he always look like he just finished eating something very salty and very sour?

    • Louise Bryan

      Those are some seriously whack-a-doo shoes.

    • Carol

      Those shoes should be burned.

    • librarygrrl64

      Some people look better, healthier, with a few more pounds on. IMO, he is one of them. Vintage Dan, please come back to us!
