Jesse Williams at “the Butler” LA Premiere

Posted on August 13, 2013

This is sad-making. From the highest fashion highs to … this:


Jesse Williams attends the premiere of “The Butler” in Los Angeles.

We get it; it’s a look and all. To be fair, we really like the shirt. It’s just that the look overall is not to our tastes and we’ll never think this kind of look suits him better than the more traditional ones. Besides, we think he could’ve tried a little harder for his movie’s LA premiere.

Still, he’ll always have that face.

  • Leather shirt, in L.A., in AUGUST? And the dropped crotch on those pants is Sooooooo 2000.

    • sugarkane105

      Haven’t you heard? Bieber brought the dropped crotch back, one of his many crimes against humanity.

      • Nooooooooooooooo!

      • Lucía Gavello

        It is a SAD day when a full grown man (and a GORGEOUS one) takes style pointers from the Biebs.

        • Aurumgirl

          Right down to the baby shoes.

    • Louise Bryan

      Leather anything other than outerwear is cool weather only; of course, outerwear is generally a cool weather thing too. For me it’s those … pants … They make me think he’s got a diaper on or something, or he bought them in the wrong department, you know, the one for men with short legs and l-o-n-g rises. Or is the shirt hiding a belt holding them up halfway up his bum.

    • Darren Nesbitt

      Kilt, people stopped associating leather with cold seasons a while ago and Lady Sybil wore harem pants. Don’t use your caps lock and question marks lol.

    • Little_Olive

      Read my mind. And it doesn’t even look like that super-thi, flowy leather! And buttoned all the way up! -although to be fair it may look weird unbuttoned.
      He seems to think he’s in hell too. His face is not a good liar.

    • Morales Mike

      I was JUST going to say that! It’s not dropped under 80 during the day here.

  • hmariec19

    Jesse, those clothes don’t flatter at all. It should be a suit, or nothing. I happen to have nothing at my desk right now…

    • filmcricket

      Well played.

  • sugarkane105

    Gross. He’s better than this.

  • So far his amazing face is all I’ve seen going for him. I didn’t care for the last look either. He’s 0 and 2 for me, yet I am properly mesmerized where it counts.

    • hughman

      You saucy minx, you.

    • Rand Ortega

      So wonderful when BK’s have their priorities straight.

  • Diego!

    OMG… I can only think of one word: DISASTER. Take that away ASAP! It’s disgusting! And that watch must go too!

  • Amy909

    it’s like his eyes are an accessory! so gorgeous.

    • Heather

      Yes, beautiful! I love green eyes…………..

  • Rand Ortega

    That shirt: Willie Nelson goes into a leather bar? Those pants defy…everything. Definition, taste, et al. He’s soooo gorgeous, though. I’ll just remain on the face.

  • alyce1213

    Go home and change.

    • gabbilevy

      No, do it here.

  • Harem jeans? That’s a new one.

    • Rand Ortega

      Hammer Time?

  • MilaXX

    I don’t mind the outfit, hammer pants included, it’s just not appropriate for this event. This is the outfit to wear when you go on Ellen, or at the VMA’s. This is not the outfit for you star filled movie premiere.

    • demidaemon

      I do mind the outfit. Dropped crotch pants on men must die. The End.

  • Fordzo

    Did they all, as a group, decide to just call it in for the LA premiere?

    • Emily

      That is how it appears isn’t it?

  • Emily

    At least he has those eyes. I can’t pull myself away from them long enough to care about the clothes I just want to rip off of him anyway.

    • Fordzo

      I know. It’s almost like “clothes? What clothes? Oh, those. They’re blocking my view. Off with them!”

  • purpleprose78

    He is so pretty….but you’re right, this is not his look.

  • Candigirl1968

    If he were a 19 year old at the Teen Choice awards, I’d say hmmmm, maybe. But he’s a grown man at a movie premier. He needs a man’s outfit and hard soled shoes on.

    • marlie

      He’s a grown man at HIS movie premiere. That makes it even worse.

  • Emily Smith

    I have a hard time getting past the face if he’s wearing clothes. He should show up with out a shirt on if he wants me to look elsewhere.

  • Eric Stott

    I hate the pushed up sleeves on this

  • ShaoLinKitten

    What ruins the shirt is all those pockets. They make it so stiff, it looks like a straitjacket. As for the pants… um, dropped crotch jeans? Oh hell no.

  • marlie

    Not a fan of the clothes, but THOSE EYES. I’d still do him.

  • HVM

    His eyes are so dreamy I couldn’t move past them to look at the clothes.

  • mjude

    do not like.

  • formerlyAnon

    This just feeds my prejudice against the notion that leather somehow improves garments traditionally formed from fabric. Au contraire. But, as noted: He has such a great face. And that smile. And those eyes . . .

  • Kimmu

    It’s driving me crazy. Does anyone else see his sometimes eerie resemblance to Elijah Wood?

  • OrigamiRose

    Holy Peter Sarsgaard face.

  • Blair Sylvester

    That shirt screams outerwear to me with the belstaffesque pockets and the somewhat heavy looking leather.

  • Getoverit

    What is it with droopy drawers? Do people actually find them attractive? Seems to me like they would be uncomfortable.

  • Oh man, I would not be able to keep my hands off of him in that shirt. The pants, however, must go!

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Yes, the pants must go!!!

  • crash1212

    Lord. Everything he has going on from the neck up gives him a pass on everything else.

  • barbarienne

    Between the many pockets and the overhead perspective making his feet tiny, he looks like he was drawn by Rob Liefield.

  • Bakerlooline

    Why is he crotch-clutching?

  • tereliz

    He and Jane are both like “Why did I agree to wear these pants?” Same uncomfortable posing and attempting to hide the crotch.

  • Anniebet

    Beautiful man. Hideous pants.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    I’m choking just looking at that shirt buttoned all the way up like that.

  • Lilyana_F

    That face, though… I can literally overlook anything

  • Danielle West


  • quiltrx

    Okay, after a couple of RC posts of him, it has to be asked…
    To me it ruins a pretty face–makes him look dumb.

  • jen_vasm

    Whoever thought up dropped crotch skinny jeans should be set on fire. What a buzzkill of an outfit.
