Ryan Reynolds in Burberry at the “Turbo” Premiere

Posted on July 10, 2013

This is all coming off more than a little try-hard to us:


Ryan Reynolds attends the premiere of “Turbo” in New York City in Burberry.

Granted, such assessments are totally subjective and mostly arbitrary, but still. We’re right. Just admit it.

Kidding aside (no really we’re right), we’d like this a lot more if he’d just button the jacket, choose a shirt that doesn’t make him look like he manages a strip club, and wear the tie properly. We don’t much love shiny suits, but if you’re going to wear one, you should commit to wearing it well. Otherwise you look sleazy. Also: shave. You’re not the kind of guy who can rock the 24-hour beard, Ryan.

Can you tell this is all not doing it for us? It’s Burberry. Why are you trying to make it look like ’60s Vegas mafioso clothes?

    Just take the suit off. Problem solved.

    • d4divine

      I hear ya sister!

  • “Trying too hard” is at least a step up from “not trying at all.” And it’s colorful, which is more than most of the men on the red carpet these days. I’m thinking if he just switched out the shirt for a white one for more contrast, he’d look so much better. That blue is actually a beautiful color.

    • j_anson

      Yes, this. It’s not that I hate any one of the many daring (for a guy) tones he is wearing. I just can’t love them all at once.

      • Yep – that green shirt is a lovely color, and unaccompanied by a suit (maybe for a photocall or a talk show appearance or some other more casual event) it’d work just fine (maybe even with similarly blue pants, though probably not shiny).

        • mmebam

          I actually think it would look great with a lighter colored suit.

          • Like a beige? I think you’re right. It’d have that Ken Cosgrove “woodsman”-like flare. But it might go nightclub-bouncer. Hard to tell.

        • marlie

          THIS is the shirt that a guystar needs to be wearing when he has on an otherwise boring grey or tan/beige suit.

    • rougeort

      I totally agree. That suit is beautiful and it seems to fit him for the most part. I agree this needs a lighter shirt for more contrast, but if he went for a white I think he would need to change ties to something slightly more vibrant.

      • Possible, though I think it’s just the dark green shirt that makes that tie look so light/low-contrast – those are actually some pretty deep jewel-like shades of olive and purple.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t like how the tie or shirt are fitting him and I don’t like the shiny shoe with this. I get the feeling that this is Not His Suit. I like all the individual pieces, but I don’t like it on him.

    • I had hoped that the open top shirt button/loose tie had died. I understand why a man would find it comfortable, but it just looks sloppy.

      • Rhonda Shore

        And get the hand out of the pocket!!!

  • Little_Olive

    He usually does zero for me. In this outfit, with that lame faces he’s giving, he is donwright pissing me off. Very in tune with his better (eh) half, though.

    Jennifer Lopez should open an academy on how to go about this stuff.

    • the (eh) cracked me up

    • d4divine

      Dear god NO…all those bronzed bodies, pouty glossed lips, and cocked hips…no no no

    • drdarke

      Ryan Reynolds looks like the douchenozzle I’ve always felt he is here, @Little_Olive:disqus , so I can’t say this outfit surprises me.

  • patticake1601

    Blueberry or Burberry?

    • d4divine


  • gabbilevy

    Shame, because it looks like if he buttoned the jacket, the whole suit would fit him perfectly. Shirt is still giving off douchewhiffs, though.

    • ankali

      I think it’s his face, not the shirt. Shirt’s not helping, though.

  • MK03

    Unrelated to fashion, but this movie looks awful. Seriously, Dreamworks, just stop making animated movies.

  • He’s not a shiny suit kind of a guy, so maybe this is an attempt at fun and playful since it’s a kid’s movie. Whenever my long standing love of him starts to waiver, or I can’t see past the gerbil like facial features, I find pics of his abs and/or watch Waiting or Definitely Maybe to recalibrate.

    “a shirt that doesn’t make him look like he manages a strip club”
    Oh yes.

    Someone gave my husband a shirt that was sort of sheer and had pintucks. After he scraped me off the floor from laughing so hard, I told him he looked like he managed a nightclub in Astoria, Queens. He hasn’t worn it since.

    • d4divine

      Dear lord…did he burn it ;-D

      • alyce1213

        I made it disappear.

        • formerlyAnon

          A supportive spouse protects one from oneself, sometimes.

        • drdarke

          Is that a wife/girlfriend thing, @alyce1213:disqus ? My own wife made all the clothes I owned when we first started going out disappear within six months…..

          • alyce1213

            It happens, from time to time.

  • Louise Bryan

    The color of the shirt / tie / suit combo is making my eyes hurt. The open top button and messy knot are bringing out my proverbial claws. Maybe it would have been better all around with a shave and a buttoned cream shirt.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    Oh I want to like this…(LOVE the color) but…dang T’lo, manager of a strip club- you nailed it. (and an animated movie about a fast snail? really… cash that check Ryan!)

  • Anniebet

    I usually love blue/green combinations. Here, no.

  • j_anson

    You just can’t wear four jewel tones in one outfit. Oddly enough I actually don’t mind the scruff.

  • d4divine

    Another one of those guys who I see naked no matter what he is wearing…hehehehe

  • silaria

    Mm. I was with you guys until that third photo, and then I melted. I wish this guy would choose better movies so I could find him attractive without feeling bad about it.

    • Kristin McNamara

      ME TOO. The third photo is where they lost me as well. Didn’t really matter what they wrote after that, because I was a puddle of goop on the floor by that point. Oh, how I love this man’s phenotype. Also- I totally don’t mind the “24-hour beard”. I think it looks sexy as hell on him.

  • Pepper Collins

    The colours are great on him individually, but together they are a bit too intense. I agree that he looks like he’s trying too hard. He COULD be a shiny suit guy, but this was the wrong foot to start off on.

  • decormaven

    “Choose a shirt that doesn’t make him look like he manages a strip club” – dead on!

  • Diego!

    I loved it. But what is going on with the bell-less looks???

  • E. D.

    Too shiny and the shirt and tie are too dull in color for that suit.

  • formerlyAnon

    I kind of like suit, shirt and tie, but most certainly not together.

    He’s always attractive but in that way where you’re happy for your best friend her husband is nice looking, feeling not a whiff of hangdog jealousy.

  • kirkyo

    Agree with everything but gotta say he’s looking pretty good in the close up.

  • demidaemon

    It may be try-hard, but at least he tried. Most male stars can’t even do that.

  • likingrob

    He NEEDS to look good. Especially with a wife who always has it right.

  • RuthGo

    I really love the color of that suit.

  • marlie

    Crappy styling ruins an otherwise gorgeous suit.

  • Imasewsure

    He never dresses well…

  • LuisaNL

    it’s all so… shiny.

  • Jessica Freeman

    If you’re going to do the shiny, it must be impeccable. Major fail Ryan.

  • Ashley Alvarez

    Burberry is dressing that couple. I also think he’s going to go more high-fashion a la Baby Goose now that Blake’s his arm candy…

  • Shawn EH

    Jewel tones!

  • stephbellard

    I’d rather see Armie Hammer in this.

  • cowper

    Why is he trying to look like a mafioso? Because he plays a cute little snail in the movie! He’s trying to look slimy.

  • H2olovngrl

    He is a right mess. Perhaps he is working a hangover? Picked the clothes up off the floor where he left them before crawling into bed at 4am?

  • snarkykitten

    Ship this off to Idris

  • bellafigura1

    Huh, I think he looks fantastic. I love the suit-shirt color combo and I have a feeling the tie does the job of pulling it together in person. Also, fuzzy face perfection.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    He looks douche-y.
