Whedon fangurls to the stage, please.
Kittens, it was the “Much Ado About Nothing” premiere, which means a whole rash of Whedonverse boy-regulars from the worlds of Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, and even The Avengers strutted their stuff on the red carpet. And by “strutted their stuff” we mean “wandered out in front of the cameras wearing horribly ill-fitting outfits.”Oh, nerdboys. Whatever will we do with you? Let’s survey the damage. Whedon fangurls are advised to keep their squealing to a minimum. The uninitiated only need wait 40 minutes before posts with celebrities they recognize start appearing.
Okay, hit it boys. Everyone else, brace yourself.
Competing grays, no visible shirt cuffs, no belt, a collapsed placket and too-long pants. We’re off to a terrible start.
Was he dressed by his mother? What is going on here? Everything’s large and goofy-looking. This may be the most upsetting of all the looks at this event because he’s just so darn cute.
Ugh. That hat. We judge guys for wearing those hats. We’re not even going to pretend otherwise.
Russian banquet hall manager.
Although really, we should be nicer. This was one of the better efforts. He’s properly groomed and everything mostly fits, so we shouldn’t be such bitches about it.
Aw, we’ll let him have this one. It’s not his job or his way to show up at events all impeccable and shit. It is, however, a sad commentary that this outfit is actually better than some of the ones the malestars wore.
Okay, you’re really going to have to brace yourself for this next one. Captain Tightpants is no more.
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?
Why did everyone get their suits from the Big and Tall Shop?
Was there some rule that they all had to avoid color as much as possible? It’s fine. We’re in no position to complain after what we just saw with Fillion.
The real disappointment came from the gay corner of the Whedonverse:
It’s fine. It’s clearly a casual event. But there’s “casual” and then there’s “on the beach” and that shirt tends to tip over to the latter. Plus his hair is irritating us. And shave, goddamit. But really, it’s fine. We suppose we were expecting the gays to rally a little more; make up for the serious style sins of their straight co-stars.
We’ll give it to Tom, though:
You can’t say he didn’t put a little effort in. Unfortunately, unlike almost everyone else on this red carpet, his stuff’s just a leeeetle too tight. Also, that’s some seriously puffy hair.
We know, we know. We’re being mean and cranky. We should’ve never started off Sausage Friday with such a collection of schlubs. Cute schlubs, it has to be said; but still schlubs.
