Darren Criss at the 2013 Do Something Awards

Posted on August 02, 2013

Since that last post was positively dripping in testosterone, let’s switch things up a little bit, shall we?

“Glee” star Darren Criss attends the 2013 Do Something Awards in Hollywood, California.

Love it. Would wear it, actually. Every single piece. Too bad he didn’t shave, but huge props on the fit here, which is impeccable in every way.

    Awww, very nice. Love the color combination how clean the look is on him. Agree about the desperate need for a shave. Would have been my personal favorite of the day (even though’s Ne-Yo crotch chain made it a hard choice:-) if he had shaved. As it is right now, Reese and her fierce bitch face and bag of life are my sausage of the day. She was just the better man today.

  • Very proper. Not my bag, but undeniably well put together.

  • marlie

    Country club perfection (and that’s not a slam).

  • decormaven

    I’m usually not a big fan of teeth whiteners, but I think one was called for in this case. Perhaps it’s just the reflection of the shirt color. All the sartorial choices are on the mark; kudos.

  • Glam Dixie

    Adorable, and extra points for no thumbs up or finger guns this time!

    • filmcricket

      Apparently TLo’s photo service didn’t catch him making the jerk-off motion at the cameras; the paps were bugging him about squinting into the flashes and he told them to f*ck off.

      • Glam Dixie

        Lol, omg that’s kind of awesome.

      • Telperion

        Actually he tried explaining his eyes are photosensitive, then when they bugged him, he mimicked jerking off cause of the old masturbation makes you blind thing. I died laughing, props for that one.

        • filmcricket

          Oh really? The clip I saw had him saying “Yeah, I get hangover jokes all the time – f*ck off, it’s a real thing.”

          • Telperion

            It’s what I got from it, yes, but if I’m wrong and you’re right, I won’t complain either. Good on him! It’s clear he has issues with his eyes.

          • MartyBellerMask

            Well, the cheesy pink sunglasses thing makes sense now.

        • Julie

          This is made funnier by the fact that he’s on one of the most wholesome shows on television. It’s comparable to Bob Sagat telling the aristocrats joke. Look it up on youtube if you haven’t seen it. I promise it’s worth your while.

          • WintryMix

            I’m a huge fan of Glee, but the universe in which it’s “one of the most wholesome shows on television” is not this one.

          • Cautia

            Glee, one of the most wholesome shows on television?

        • Jessica O’Connell

          He’s also half-Asian and so his eyes, like mine (also half-Asian), get more “squinty”-looking when he smiles… I’d flip off the paparazzi or something if they said that to me too!

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Haaaah! I never liked him, but I may have to re-evaluate that.

    • Cautia

      He gave plenty of thumbs up (something that seems to be a reflex for him when he’s ready to move on – like ‘ok guys, did you get enough pictures?’), there’s just no pictures of that here.

  • MilaXX

    Is the Thurston Howard III look a thing for guys this summer? He looks good, but it’s making me hum the theme to Gilligan’s Idland.

    • filmcricket

      Apparently – it’s all over the place, isn’t it?

    • Karen Belgrad

      That’s exactly who I thought of… If he was a gal, he’d have a purse shaped like a coconut phone!

    • Imasewsure

      Thurston Howell III of course… now ask me to sing the musical version of Hamlet… 🙂

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      All he needs is a yachting cap and a footlocker full of money to complete the Jim Backus look!

  • newleaf1

    Not a fan, but he looks really great here. The fabric on those pants is really thin, thought – can see the pockets through them.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      drat….this comment made me scroll back….

  • Shawn EH

    Cutest little sailor on the dock!

  • The neck beard is as strong with this one as the douchebag is strong in Mark Wahlberg.

  • Julie

    Cruise ship performer.

    • Jessica Freeman

      My thoughts exactly.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      dang, you nailed that one. “and appearing nightly on the Lido Deck, Rick Smithfield…”

  • Jessica Freeman

    While I certainly like this look, on Darren it’s not working at all.

  • Telperion

    He has such a tiny waist and it looks so good when the clothes fit like this. Love this whole outfit, looks great on him.

  • majorbedhead

    Oh, god, my weakness: A guy in white trousers and a navy jacket. Be still, my inner preppy heart.

  • nannypoo

    He looks great. He seems to have outgrown the silly sunglasses and douchey posing. Now if he would just shave he would have it nailed.

  • NBG

    I am convinced that every RC now needs a barber at the end of it to shave these dude stars who apparently do not know how to do it themselves.

    • formerlyAnon

      Oh. My. God. I would SO love that.

      • marlie

        That could be a spin-off of TLo’s reality show where they play red carpet stylists.

  • titaness25

    I would’ve loved if his hankie was green, then I could call him the Flag of Jamaica. (this would be glorious, obv.)

  • oatmealpie

    I like that he still has normal human teeth, rather than those unnaturally white and perfectly rectangular things all the celebrities are sporting.

  • Lizzy

    Oooo… my favorite color combo EVER!!!!!! Looks great… needs a shave. Oh.. and just… an 1/8 of an inch longer hem please… don’t like man ankles.

  • Trisha26

    A bit Thurston Howell III for me, plus the lack of shave (as mentioned). Don’t care for those shoes with this. Why not a light suede oxford?

  • *applauds*

  • Imasewsure

    Really nice… kind of a Cary Grant vibe from the neck down anyway

  • formerlyAnon

    So glad you approve. I did (except wishing for a shave) and was expecting to scroll down and find out what failings I had overlooked.

  • Gloriana Reginata

    For some weird reason, I am really loving the glimpse of black belt in the shot with his hand in his pocket. It just adds a sharp line between the yellow shirt and white trousers that makes the whole look sing.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    Time for tennis and maybe martinis at the club? perfect, light, summery. He makes it look so easy…(why oh why other manstars is putting on a nice outfit so hard for the r/c??) he makes it look like he just rolled out of bed and Voila! (and nice to see he has facial hair- we *know* he will never grow a beard so…IN. (the spot of yellow at the cuffs is PERFECT)

    • Cautia

      He’s very beardy actually.

  • quiltrx

    It’s really nice to see a younger boystar who cares about and understands tailoring! Plus he’s pretty adorable.
    And let’s be fair, his crunchy hair needs to be made a bit of fun of too.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Very cruise ship but I can’t help but love it. I am adoring that hint of mustache. I would love to see it fully grown in. But without the beard stubble. Why not give it a try?
    Not every man can grow facial hair; i say if you can, then have fun with it.

  • sleepycat

    Okay I totally go for 24-hour east coast prep thing (hair perfectly coifed, crisp button down, solid color shorts/pants, loafers, etc) despite being a west coast hipster/hippy. Hopefully Philly can provide Thurston looking for some northern californian. #lesigh Here Criss needs a shave and his hair lacquered.

  • Rachel Monroe

    too bad he is a over hyped attention whore. His teeth he seems like he has bad breath.

  • XPT

    No white pants EVER!!!

  • conniemd

    Love, love, love the yellow shirt.

  • kipper

    Best dressed man star in AGES !!!

  • YoungSally

    Thurston Howell IV….but the hair still looks odd – the styling/product ratio is off. Or is he in the unfortunate position where his hair has to be slicked back/over whatever….otherwise it looks like a comb-forward/Hair Club commericial.

  • kalisa

    Was the event held on a yacht?

  • Jessica O’Connell

    He looks adorable. And I like him with a little scruff. It keeps these kinds of looks from looking too “Blaine.”

  • MzzPants

    I have a feeling with this one…he shaved right before he left the house and that neck scruff grew on the ride over. My dad was like that…beard-in-a-day.

  • boweryboy

    I don’t like his crunchy Top Ramen looking hair. Outside of that he’s mouth watering deliciousness, as usual.
