Ewan McGregor at the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Posted on June 28, 2013

Ewan MacGregor, you remain ridiculously cute and ridiculously still able to dress like this without looking, well, ridiculous.


Ewan McGregor (pictured with Eve Mavrakis) at the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party 2013 in London.

Although we suspect the clock is ticking on this look, a la The Depp. Still, rock it while you can, boy.

We are hoping it’s either odd lighting or an upcoming role that’s making us think you’ve dyed your hair and eyebrows. Please don’t tell us you did it for vanity reasons, Ewan. That would be sad-making.

We keep seeing pictures from this event that make us wish we’d been invited to it.

    Love him to pieces, love Eve too, but that hat is just too costumey for me.

  • Diego!

    Without the hat this is a male WERQ to me. I repeat, WITHOUT the hat. Both look adorable!

    • alyce1213

      Agree. He chose the pieces well (EXCEPT the hat), everything suits him and the event, and it fits.

  • Randy Noak

    Amish hipster.

    • MilaXX

      just said the same thing

    • 3boysful

      I was going to ask if he was doing a remake of Witness.

      • drdarke

        “Be you careful among The English, Obi-Wan Kenobi.”

  • mjude

    love him

  • Eric Stott

    The look would be a bit better if every piece didn’t look brand new and oh so artfully rumpled- except for the hat which looks straight out of the box.

  • Pannyx

    He looks like an idiot. Sorry, nothing about this is working for me.

    • Peeve

      I’m right there with you…

  • Meredith

    Love that he makes me love this. He’s got his fingers around her belt. Cute!

  • Chris T

    His hair was dyed dark for the Natalie Portman movie he just shot in New Mexico.

    • Rand Ortega

      “Jane Got A Gun”. That movie has an incredible checkered history behind it. The writer/director, Lynne Ramsay, bailed the 1st day of shooting, leaving the producer Natalie Portman in the lurch to the tune of about $10M in delays, hires & recasts. Then in succession the male lead Jude Law bailed, then Bradley Cooper, then Michael Fassbender . McGregor is the 5th actor to take the male lead role (don’t know who was the 4th). Happily he stayed. Now I have a reason to see it.

      • Imasewsure

        I would like to have been in charge of that casting couch….

        • Rand Ortega

          Heh… Instead of Sausage Fridays, you have Sausage weeks.

  • jhedman

    Ditch the hat, undo a button or two on the shirt, and OK. A bit too monochrome and dark for summer, I think. Love his mischievous expression, though, like he’s trying not to laugh and being only partly successful.

    • Heather

      And shave?

  • carnush

    He makes me smile on the inside. And I like her dress.

  • Ginny Ellsworth

    I think you nailed it with the dippity do hair dye. I couldn’t figure out what looked “off” about his pics since he is normally such a cutie.

  • Jeebus does this man know how to wear clothes. (envy)
    I would really appreciate a one on one tutorial, Ewan. Of course, you’ll have to take those clothes off, first.

  • Carleenml

    I think he’ll work it more a-la James Taylor than Depp. And his hand around her waist is giving me the vapors. God, what a hot hand.

    • filmcricket

      Does he have giant hands and I just never noticed? They look huge! I mean, I’m assuming his wife is very petite, but still.

      • big hands…..big…..gloves ; )

      • Rand Ortega

        That lucky bi…

    • ailujailuj

      damn discus won’t let me vote more than once.

  • filmcricket

    That hat is skirting dangerously close to costume territory, Ewan. I’m going to pretend it’s a “Miller’s Crossing” homage, which makes it better.

  • Rand Ortega

    Is that Mrs. McGregor? ‘Cause if it is, I hate her & want to steal her life at gunpoint. (Checked the Wiki: It is & I do). The look is a tad too “Witness” ’80’s Amish chic for me. But it’s Ewan. If I can stand the unbelievable awfulness of “Jack The Giant Slayer” to gaze upon his awe inspiring hipster hair & Sir Walter Raleigh goatee for 1.75 hours, I can tolerate this ensemble.

  • MilaXX

    Only Ewan could dress like an Amish hipster and I would still like it.

  • acevedob

    Oh Ewan….sighhh…

  • ailujailuj

    “what a lovely dress she has on…” (whilst secretly plotting a quick, clean, reliable way to get rid of her… I”m sure she’s very nice.)

  • Beardslee

    Oooh. That man…

  • JP

    If his shirt were a lighter color, I’d like his total look more. Still, I always love to see him out and about. And yes, the Serpentine event is one I’ve always wanted to go to!

  • Tatiana Luján

    No, no, no.
    He’s looking like Dan Stevens in theese pictures. I don’t like anything from the belt up.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    I love Ewan but I think the hat and rolled cuff are just a bridge too far. The whole ensemble looks really rumpled from the side view.

  • MannahattaMamma

    No, it’s not johnny depp…he’s turning into a younger (we hope less nutty) Daniel Day-Lewis. Which from a purely aesthetic standpoint is NOT A BAD THING.

  • marlie

    Ewan McGregor can do no wrong in my book. Did anyone see the pics of his Investiture with him in the kilt? DASHING.

  • NMMagpie

    Le sigh. 🙂

  • oatmealpie

    Ewan’s ladyfriend: your belt is sagging, and I can see your training bra. Ewan: wouldn’t you much rather be with me?

    • J. Preposterice

      That’s his wife.

  • In_Stitches

    What’s going on with that jacket? It looks like he popped the lapels and collar, but there are button holes on the lapel, so….no, they can’t be lapels. Then again, it’s not a nehru jacket-there’s no closure at the neck that I can see. I’m confused and I don’t like it. Also, not a fan of the whole buttoning the top button of a shirt and non wearing a tie thing. It’s both figuratively and literally too ‘buttoned up’. Still, it’s Ewan and by pure force of will, he’s earning an 8 out of 10.

    • I think it’s a hunting style jacket.

  • Denise Alden

    Honestly! Who is more adorable than Ewan McGregor? No one, that’s who.

  • cowper

    Ewan MacGregor! Squee!

  • girliecue

    Ewan! NOW it’s officially Sausage Friday!

  • Wellworn

    I wanna go to the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party in London too! And I won’t tell Ewan how bad he looks when I see him. Because he does look pretty bad. No amount of cute can wear that look, sorry.

  • YoungSally

    I half expect Arte Johnson to come out of the bamboo and say “very interesting”

  • nannypoo

    I think he looks ridiculous.

  • Man, he’s basically the only guy who’s managed to rock 90s styles the first time around and on the retro comeback, huh? Except his hat is slightly too big, which bothers me if only because, since it seems like an outdoor party, only a fitted hat has a chance of staying on one’s head with a gust of wind. Hope it was a calm day.

    I am going to join the chorus of people who also wish they were invited and able to go to the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party. I am going to make do by going to the Jazz Age Lawn Party a second time this summer.


  • siriuslover

    I LOVE Ewan McGregor! LOVE LOVE LOVE him.
    And I wouldn’t doubt any physical changes are for a role. He tends to really sink into his roles (I was convinced he really WAS a young Obi Wan, to use a less than stellar example…if you want high art, there’s the example of his playing James Joyce).

  • TheAmericaness

    I’ve always said he has the kind of grin you don’t take home to mom and dad…. Love him.

  • julnyes

    yep, that’ll do.

  • Ashleigh

    I love the cheeky look on his face like he KNOWS he’s getting away with something.

  • Pretty sure he still looks ridiculous, but at least he tied his shoes. God, the bar is low today.

  • boweryboy

    I HAAAAAAAAATE the hat, but the rest is nice. Oh, and his outfit is nice too.

  • kirkyo

    Totally thought TLO was going there today.

  • MzzPants

    Amish hipsters.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Man, do I love Ewan McGregor. So much so that I’m willing to ignore that hat.

  • bertkeeter

    TOO cute…I mean really TOO cute!

  • Nicola Anna Molly Page

    I has a not-irrational hatred of him up there after he came to visit my film class off the back of Trainspotting. He was dismissive and arrogant and since I am Scottish I wanted to punch him repeatedly because we don’t like them that get above themselves. These days I just get a slight tremor and break a pen.

    Seriously though, he was a total c word. In a bad way. Yup, I mean cocky. Very cocky.

  • Linda LaPaz

    Oh, but I love a man in a kilt!

  • quiltrx

    I can’t with the hat. It’s a bit silly, AND it’s covering up one of his best features, that cute hair!

  • demidaemon

    I can get behind everything here except for the hat and the cuffed jeans. Especially the cuffed jeans. Get them hemmed, for god’s sake!

  • Katie McKinney

    It’s a Scottish thing.

  • Puckndc

    He’s getting a little long in the tooth for this…

  • Toto Maya

    He looks ridiculous. She looks awesome.

  • throwaneyeonthis

    Thinking girl’s Daniel Craig.

  • jmorino08

    I love him more the older he gets!!

  • imakeart

    Let him wear whatever he wants…that impish grin and the sparkle in his eye get me every time.

  • My eyes are drawn to that girl’s droopy belt in every frickin’ picture! Ack!

  • xmixiex


  • Daktari100

    TLO, I think you might be blinded by love, because this does look a bit, well, ridiculous.
