Armie Hammer in Gucci at “The Lone Ranger” London Premiere

Posted on July 22, 2013

Oh look. Armie took our advice. Haven’t we always said that the celebs all secretly hang onto our every word in order to make style and career decisions that make sense? It’s true. They just won’t admit it. Shut up. Your face is delusional.

Anyway, the poledance for this doomed movie had quickly taken a “chronic depression” turn on the style front, and we said this about him last week, when he was about to burst into tears on the red carpet: “we have no advice for Armie except to cheer up, shave, put on a bright orange tie, and ask your assistant to pack more Visine.”

Looks like he took all that advice and ran with it:

Attaboy. That’s a look that says, “I’m moving forward, world! Look how fucking optimistic I am!” Bringing the wife and the horse along were good ideas too because props always help; especially if the last red carpet had you all alone in a grey suit with tears in your eyes.

Long way of saying, “Great suit! Thumbs up, buddy!”

      Good effort even though the jacket is too tight. Good looking couple!

    • Kiltdntiltd

      the absolute best he has ever looked! He even has some expression besides “dazed”. That suit fits to perfection.

      • Introspective

        seriously. this suit is gorgeous. he should go for this fit and cut everytime he steps outside.

        • Kiltdntiltd

          Also, Armie and bright colors? Besties.

          • MilaXX

            I thik it’s the suit color working wonders for his eyes. The blue really pops.

          • RebeccaKW

            First time I’ve ever seen him and thought “mmm.” He normally does nothing for me, but in this suit, he doing a little bit.

      • Airkisses

        Someone said on the other picture that nothing about him there read Movie Star. Well, he sure looks like one now. Also, he’s graduated from inoffensively generic into full-blown hot.

        Such is the magic of good clothes, styling, and attitude.

      • Rhonda Shore

        It’s such a relief to see this, a man not afraid of color. He looks fantastic — there have been too many bankers on the red carpet lately. And his wife sort of looks like Cindy Crawford, i thought it was her for a moment.

    • Clueless_Jock

      I want that suit.

    • Merkin

      He looks fantastic. I could quibble about the fit, the shirt collar, and the tie knot, but it’s overall a perfect look for him. He actually looks like a young, handsome movie star!

    • Gus Casals

      That looks OUTSTANDING. Really. Love the suit, love the guy in the suit.

    • decormaven

      I rarely dip into the vernacular, but ROFLMFAO. They took your ball and ran with it. Booyah, touchdown!

    • Meredith

      Wow, he is GORGEOUS. I’ve never seen any of his films. But now I just might. So good job.

    • jen_vasm

      Much improved, but dude has sad eyes.

    • snarkykitten

      Wow..down to the tie, it’s almost eerie.
      (mind you, if I got famous, the first people I’d turn to is you, TLO)

    • TSkot

      Unfortunate fit and choice of tie.

    • Kate

      dang….he looks fine…..

    • courtney

      I saw these pictures last night on another site and IMMEDIATELY thought ‘T Lo will dig this. Well played, sir.’

    • Cz

      He clearly followed TLo’s Tips on: How to Combat Jetlag with Style

      I’d totally subscribe to that.

    • JauntyJohn

      A thousand percent improvement.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Now THAT is a turnaround. I’m hoping stylists all over Hollywood adopt your forthcoming book, as the universe clearly intends.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      I saw these pictures over the weekend, and I said to myself, “Oh look. Armie followed T+Lo’s advice and doesn’t he look good!”

    • MilaXX

      I like the suit but attempting to tone it down with that horrible and too shiny shoes was not the way to go.

    • BazoDee

      Wow! I had no idea a red suit could look this good

    • sugarkane105

      Boy WERQ!

    • alyce1213

      He really can wear color. This suit is made for him. The choice tie color seems deliberately off-beat, and I’m surprised, after looking a few times, that I actually like it.

    • Rand Ortega

      A serious MERQ. I’m impressed.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      “Shut up. Your face is delusional.” Literally made me laugh out loud. Thanks for ending my work day on a high note, TLo!

      • Pennymac

        I’ll be waiting all week at work for an opportunity to say this…..

    • mmebam

      Loving the flash of blue socks!

    • Ashleigh

      He looks like a completely different person!! I want to get married in this suit!!!

    • In_Stitches

      The fit on that suit is perfection. Anything less and he would have looked like a clown.

    • Beth513

      That suit is amazing! And, and I had not yet realized that this baking soda kid is super pretty. Good job fabulous suit, hot wife, and horse(!?) for bringing it to my attention. I’m still not going to see his terrible movie though.

    • Hot Mess Housewife

      YUM. Attaboy inDEED.

    • Gaby


    • Shawn EH

      That red totally pops his eyes! You have to acknowledge his long tall drink of water-yness, and those great shoes! He looks fun, not clownish.

    • PrunellaV

      Love how her nail polish matches his suit.

    • Little_Olive

      I’m sorry, I cannot endorse 1) that collar 2) the color of that that tie -esp against a white shirt.

      But many many kudos for pulling of a bright red suit!! I hope the Man Spanx isn’t impairing your ability to produce gorgeous offspring.

    • RussellH88

      I covet that suit.

      I worry that since if I ever had to dress up, I’d end up picking something that Alan Cumming would wear and be unable to pull it off.

    • Griffinqueen

      Every girl crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      oh why the hell not….you know he wants to tear up those ‘do press’ contracts and get really really drunk…

    • housefulofboys

      I love the bold suit and he looks great. If only his tie wasn’t the color of dog poo.

      • conniemd

        This totally. I swear the rainbows shed a tear every time they see a tie on the red carpet this year.

    • kimmeister

      Her shoes are pretty rockin’.

    • AnaRoW

      It’s odd that I just got through looking through a bunch of pictures of athletes at the Espys. Most of the men (many of whom would make Armie look short or at least average) were in bright colors like red or pink. I can’t help but wonder if that, along with TLo’s advice, also gave him the idea to go with a bright red. Either way, it was a good idea. He looks great.

    • fairi5fair


    • Just Me

      Much better…see what a little Will Smith-like red can do for you Armie? That and bringing your Jada is the secret to surviving a train wreck of a movie poledance with your chances of securing a better acting gig well in hand. Way to suck it up and put on your big boy face! Momma is proud of you!

    • Joan Golann

      but that tie!!

    • Imasewsure

      I love this

    • Qitkat

      I would never have believed a guy could look that great in a red suit, but he does. It’s fabulous! And how sweet is that last photo?

    • putacorkinit

      He’s been styled so generically, I thought he was Ryan Gosling

    • Anniebet

      Love the suit, hate the tie. Is that his mother? (ducking)

    • Lotus Baby

      His piercing blue eyes are absolutely stunning! Though I’d rather stare deep into his brown eye if you know what I mean.

    • marshmallowjane

      Doesn’t his jacket pull a little bit in order to be buttoned? He definitely looks better than his last red carpet venture. He sure is handsome.

    • pookiesmom

      HUBBA, HUBBA. I’ve never before said that about this man, but yowza. Look at them eyes!

    • demidaemon

      Good job! Hang in there, Armie!

      Also, I am slightly coveting that suit.

    • Lori

      Good job making lemonade out of lemons. The movie is a bomb, but Armie is definitely trying to point that he personally is still the shit. Way to go.

    • jilly_d


    • clairellis

      Obviously, he took my advice to show up everywhere naked and his wife made him happy. Damn it! He was supposed to come to my house naked and I was gonna make him happy! He does looks amazing! And that suit. His wife is pretty damn hot too!

    • DamH

      Oh he looks totally adorbs ( just can’t help saying this). Now I have a serious crush on him 😉

    • Mlzx

      For being such a conventionally good looking man, he sure has trouble making a suit look sharp, doesn’t he? He can just never manage to look sleek.

    • Slowfish57

      Oh, look. A horse’s ass. And a well-appointed purebred (wearing a saddle).

    • SewingSiren

      If he’s riding a horse he should be wearing boots.

    • NBG

      He’s so pretty in this! :)

      And I must add that he and his lovely wife are killing it in the footwear department.

    • quiltrx

      That suit is really a great cut for him, isn’t it? And I like the bright color. Good for you, Armie!

    • Janet B

      Well done.

    • bertkeeter


    • Gloriana Reginata

      I’ve noticed that grey- and blue-eyed guys on the rc often look great in greys which reflect their eye colour. But Armie in grey last week was so bland; and here the red really makes his eyes sing. Why why why don’t men wear more colour? Curse you, Beau Brummel.

    • Victoria Pavlova

      If the Universe would be so nice and pack up her shoes and send them to me, I’d be very grateful.

      Oh, and that shade brings up the color of his eyes. No go on the tie, though.

    • Danielle L

      I would have picked a different color tie, but otherwise, perfection.

    • Cathy S

      I love that suit. Just gorgeous.

    • julnyes

      Best he has looked on this media tour.

      I still find him bland beyond measure, but this is a definite step in the right direction.

    • ToniMacAttack

      Sorry. Distracted by his wife’s shoes. Need them.

    • stubbornthoughts

      That suit is giving me a lady boner.

      • Shawn EH

        He’s so “what movie? I’m still 7 feet tall and married to this, so …. ?”

    • oohsparkley!

      MERQ! or MERK?! Such a cutie.

    • marlie

      I LOVE this on him. Shame about the movie, though.

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      Damn, he looks good!

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Gorgeous. So happy whenever the men put in the color effort.

    • ItsDicey

      Love this suit! He looks fantastic.

    • Stacy Feng

      Orange suit trumps orange tie.

    • librarygrrl64

      WOW!!! And he looks about twenty pounds lighter than he did in that gray suit. Well done!

    • H2olovngrl

      He is a beautiful man with a luxurious head of hair. I bet he will be ok.
