WERQ: Liam Hemsworth at Hugo Boss Flagship Opening

Posted on September 25, 2013

Honestly, we had no idea straight guys did this sort of thing. We know gay men do it, and we definitely know straight gals do it (because they invented it) and we’ve even known a lady-lovin’ lady to pull this sort of trick out of her arsenal now and then.


Liam Hemsworth at Hugo Boss Celebrates Columbus Circle Flagship Opening in New York City in Boss Black.


But swear to God, we didn’t even know straight guys knew about the all important post-breakup fuck-you-I’m-fabulous-and-everyone-wants-me appearance in public (also known to many a gay as the “I will survive” gambit because it’s best if Miss Gloria Gaynor is playing in your head as you sashay your heartbreak away down the sidewalk).

Well done, Mr. Hemsworth. Bravo. Seriously. That is some Grade-A image management. You WERQ that first shot across the bow, boy. Snaps of RESPECT.

      Oh my gosh, the bodyguard’s face in the second photo…he knows that boy’s going to survive and then some.

      • schadenfreudelicious

        He is mere moments away from giving him some snaps and a “that boy is fiiiine”

      • Sobaika

        It’s Uncle Phil!!

      • Anathema_Device

        Had to go back and look, and then LOL! Thanks.

      • Violentcello

        Yes! I keep going back to look at it. He’s definitely giving snaps in his head.

    • RussellH88

      That may be the laziest peace sign I’ve ever seen.

      I’m coveting his outfit.

      • Ten Ten

        You can the have the outfit. I’m coveting him. End!

      • fursa_saida

        The peace sign is kind of ruining everything for me. I can’t look away from it.

    • oat327

      Love the outfit, right down to the collar pin. Tie bar’s way too high though, and a little too wide for the tie.

      • MoHub

        I find the height of the tie bar distracting from an otherwise stellar look.

        • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

          I’m sure it can be removed. Along with everything else he’s wearing.

          Daddy’s in a mood this morning, and that mood is “quite willing to be Liam Hemsworth’s rebound affair.”

    • Inspector_Gidget

      It’s probably more “Yay I dodged a bullet” than “My heart will go on.”

      • bigfan

        I’m hearing “I’m an adult, not a teenage boy, little girl”

    • alyce1213

      Is that the sign for “post-breakup fuck-you-I’m-fabulous-and-everyone-wants-me?”
      Very nice, but he could’ve done a little better on 1) neck shaving and 2) placement of tie clip.
      I mean, did anybody take this relationship seriously?

      • kimmeister

        Almost all tie clips featured on this site have been weirdly high lately! Must be a “thing.”

        • GillianHolroyd

          I, for one, would like to know the official TLo position on tie clips.

          • Kent Roby

            I personally refuse to even utter the words (sorta rhyme with “pie blast”) until I’ve heard Uncles Dearest take a stand! :) But that element aside; LH looks really great here, and looks like the type of guy who has never ever heard of Miley.

          • chill85

            I actually looked this up on GQ’s website one time. Usually their style advice is so non-commital, so I expected “it depends on your height” or “it depends on the tie” or “it depends on whether or not you’re wearing a vest” but actually the advice they gave was a single sentence: “It goes between the third and fourth buttons of your dress shirt.” And when I followed that rule, I have to say, it looked perfect.

        • alyce1213

          Looks so weird to me — like a 3-year-old put it on himself, at the wrong place.

      • SugarSnap108

        The placement of the tie clip is bugging the hell out of me. And now that you mention it, the neck grooming is, too. Otherwise, this is pretty fabulous.

    • Ramon Figueroa

      To paraphrase those two great sages, TLO, Mr Hemsworth kindly requests Miley that she eats it. And then choke on it.

      • Jacqueline Wessel

        As Latrice Royale would say, “You gotta get up, look sickening and make them eat it.”

        • ellisd123

          SNAPS for quoting the great Latrice Royale!

          • demidaemon

            Indeed. Bow down to the queen of B.I.T.C.H.!

      • BayTampaBay

        Question: Who broke up with who? I have read all the gossip and cannot figure it out.

        Maybe they were never really dating in the first place? LOL! LOL?

    • Chuck Barthelme

      Oh, a boy werq! Nice. He really does look nicely put together here. Mostly no neck beard, even.

    • NinjaCate

      The guy’s face in the background of shot #2 says everything there is to say about this.

    • mshesterp

      I’m seriously doubting TLo will cover it (although I would be delighted), but naked Miley is on the cover of the new Rolling Stone (and inside as well) and there’s quite an interesting article in there–I don’t think Liam was on her radar very long after they were engaged (or is it “engaged?”) I’m not going to go all pearl-clutching because I don’t think she’s a hot mess, even post-VMA’s–just someone who’s been famous too long at a young age who’s trying to be all edgy and shocking. Liam is going to do A-OK if he avoids the black hole that is Miley, which he’s been doing quite admirably for a few months now (I think people won’t even remember they were together, to be honest.)

      He is looking super dapper, I must agree.

      • ALT19

        I was under the impression they broke up six months ago. At the time (and this holds true now, obviously) I read some article about how all she wanted to do was party, and he couldn’t keep up, and his brothers didn’t like her, yadda, yadda. It’s not that all that isn’t true – I just couldn’t roll my eyes hard enough. You proposed to a 19-year-old. How serious did you think that was? How seriously did you expect American to take the engagement? Please.

        • formerlyAnon

          Right? An engagement formed at 19 & 22, between two rather attractive persons who are celebrities and successful entertainers? Odds against are staggering. Only persons who are the age of the principles could possibly take it seriously.

          • BayTampaBay

            No doubt Liam wants to be a serious actor and win an Oscar in the future. This will be difficult with a ball-and-chain like Miley attached. See BEN AFFLECK”S road to an Oscar.

    • Theresa Davis

      Note to Miley: you can get media attention while wearing clothes without wagging your tongue

    • JasmineAM

      Good lord we must force the Clan Hemsworth to produce MORE. These guys are the epitome of genetic lottery.

      • MilaXX

        There is a 3rd brother who’s trying to break into acting. Chris has mentioned him in interviews.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

          I saw a pic of the three of them together. The third one is not so tall.

    • erinbinek

      Yeah, I think he’s going to be juuuuuuuust fine.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

        I think he’s been fine this whole time, but that’s a different definition of fine.

        • erinbinek

          That’s Fine, with a capital F.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      If “I will survive” fabulousness is what he’s doing, what the hell is Miley doing?

      • sagecreek

        Still sticking her tongue out, sad to say.

    • Blair Sylvester

      I’m guessing a gay or straight lady stylist put this together? Maybe one who hates Miley. Also it doesn’t seem like either were super invested in the relationship

    • Tatiana Luján

      I thought you were talking about wearing eye makeup.

    • fauxprah

      Regrets………he’s had a twerkn’ few.

      He’s all WERQ, no twerk.

        or side-tongue! *snaps*

    • HM3

      Lo! How many eons of difference exist between HIS version of a “Look at Me” Tour, and HER version of a “Look at Me” Tour! Well done, Mr. Hemsworth. Well done indeed.

    • MilaXX

      Especially when your ex is making a fool of themselves in public while you make yourself look all respectable and grownup.

    • Alloy Jane

      So Miley & Liam split because he (supposedly) cheats on her regularly, most prominently (supposedly) with January Jones. Miley is generally gross and obnoxious, but so is Robert Pattinson, yet RPatz got tons of sympathy when his morose chickee was seen grinding on some married dude. I don’t remember the outcry against Liam when the pictures and rumours about him and JJ surfaced. Very interesting, if you ask me.

      Oh yeah, nice suit, but the kid isn’t my style. I definitely prefer the older Hemmsworth. Chris and his manly self is hot hot hot.

      • CNM

        My guess is that the RPatz scandal was covered more in the media because the Twilight movies were coming out and very popular.

      • HVM

        Yeah I didn’t have any strong feelings about their breakup until he was pictured kissing someone a day after it was announced. They’ve probably been broken up forever, but knowing how much media attention it would get, it just didn’t seem like a nice thing to do.

        • Erica_Vuitton

          Thank you. If she was papped one day later kissing a one night stand I can only imagine the backlash and nasty names hurled at her. #DoubleStandard

        • Zaftiguana

          I think your first mistake was ever having any strong feelings about it.

          • HVM

            Maybe reread what I said…I didn’t have any strong feelings about their breakup…?! Each to their own, I just don’t think he did a nice thing after the breakup was announced.

            • Zaftiguana

              I read it fine, it says “didn’t…until”

        • TigerLaverada

          I heard he’d been trying to get her to agree to announcing their split for months, but she didn’t want to do it until her new album dropped.

        • sleepycat

          I hate showmances, they are obviously deployed to keep the movies in the limelight.

      • MilaXX

        eh, it depends on who you listen too. Others claim it was her increasingly obnoxious public behavior topped off with the VMA performance that broke them up. Honestly I just think it was 2 kids who were simply too young to get married in the first place who simply grew apart as the demands of their careers increased.

        • H2olovngrl

          Sage words. Nicely put.

      • Zaftiguana

        I don’t think there’s any comparing the public sentiment toward RPatz and the one toward Miley Cyrus.

      • alyce1213

        I think circumstances played a part. The Hemsworth/Cyrus relationship seemed to be a shaky, on-again/off-again deal between two celebrities who were too young to get married. Kristen Stewart had a shoot-fuck with her married-with-children director, and she knew the man’s wife. Liberty Ross and Pattinson were viewed more sympathetically than Miley, true, but it’s a different story.

        • demidaemon

          It’s probably hard to be sympathetic when you are so irritating and over-exposed when the break-up is announced.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      No opinion on the Miley/Liam relationship and split. That is one good suit. The pinned (?) tied reminds me of Boardwalk Empire

    • Rand Ortega

      That shirt is awesome.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      My word, that boy is fine.

      Great. Now I feel dirty. I thought once Lautner went away, I could do away with the perky old lady shtick.

    • stubbornthoughts

      He’s actually….smiling. Good for him! I’m personally very glad Miley won’t be along with all the Hunger Games/Catching Fire promo pics. The less headlines she makes, the better.

    • quiltrx

      Gotta be a personal best–WERQ indeed! He looks gorgeous, and happy, and relaxed…AND dapper.
      Miss Cyrus (who will never, EVER be Mrs. Hemsworth) is cordially invited to SUCK IT.

    • sagecreek

      I don’t generally care about celeb gossip, but honestly, I just want to high five him for dodging that particular bullet.

    • kirkyo

      The point at which a boy became a man.

    • Clair Ellis

      Miley probably let the best thing that’s ever happened/going to happen to her get away. Liam is gonna be fine. He’s gonna be better than fine bc as someone already mentioned, bullet dodged. Also, HE’S SO HANDSOME!

    • marishka1

      I don’t know what his part in the break-up was, if any, but I think he dodged a bullet there.

    • nannypoo

      I’m pretty sure he was working for months on an exit strategy that would leave him not looking like a douche, so I give him no credit at all for his stiff upper lip. He looks great. I hope next time he gets hitched it’s to a normal person.

    • formerlyAnon

      She’s been more publicly embarrassing, but it’s not just HE who dodged a bullet. Good looking celebrities, successful entertainers, plenty of money, fans, general hangers on, periods of all-consuming work interspaced with dead time between projects, get engaged at 19 & 22?? Total crap shoot as to who’d be more miserable first, but pretty much no chance that was EVER gonna work out. They’re both lucky to break up before lawyers would be required to negotiate a split.

    • http://stylishsass.blogspot.com/ Terri Smith

      Snaps of “I’d hit that!”

    • TigerLaverada

      That’s the best I’ve ever seen him look. Maybe he’s not the budget-model Hemsworth anymore. He also looks like he’s experience a delightful inner sense of profound relief for some reason. Or maybe I’m just reading that into his aura. I know I’d be feeling that way.

    • Jacquelyn

      Yummy. And it’s not even Friday.

    • DTLAFamilies

      Don’t get all the hyperventilating over this boy. Dull as dirt.

      • formerlyAnon

        But in a conventionally attractive way. And physically he’s athletic enough and tall enough and well built enough that Mama Nature pings on him hard for a lot of people.

        • DTLAFamilies

          I guess i can understand. Mother Nature does all kinds of pinging whenever I see Henry Cavill and he’s as exciting as dry wall, so.

          • formerlyAnon

            Share your assessment of Cavill. And he does nothing for me visually, but I know from experience that if I stand within 1.5 feet of guys built like that, Mama Nature pings till she wakes up my lizard brain and it wants to override all the intellect.

            • Just Me

              Hee-Hee…new term: Lizard Brain Crush…that inexplicable, I have no business wanting this person from a common sense/thinking point of view, but DAMN if my lady/boy bits are not being pinged like it’s Pon Farr time.

      • sleepycat

        tragic, sigh. why can’t scholars be hot gay men?

        • formerlyAnon

          In my experience, 85% of hot [male] scholars ARE gay men. Which does me no good at all. But I admit there aren’t very many of ’em.

          The underlying problem, of course – for male & female academics – is that scholarship is so often a very unathletic culture and that academics seem to order most of their clothes online or shop in establishments which lack mirrors. And are ignorant of or parsimonious in budgeting for hair stylists.

    • kimiakay

      Look at those eyes! Looking fine, Mr. Liam.

    • Belvane

      It’s becoming an obsession with me — I can’t see anything other than the stubble. You can put a gorgeous man in a gazillion-dollar suit and he still looks like a hobo if he won’t shave.

      • formerlyAnon

        I wouldn’t go all the way to hobo, but it’s darn sure not a plus in my book.

        • BrooklynBomber

          I think it’d help if the neck beard section was gone.

    • sleepycat

      he looks like he has “face” (a face that has “gay” characteristics, what exactly those are I don’t know, although I heard it is more expressive”, but also he looks like my favorite gay character on Mad Men, Bob Benson. I know the paps have been saying he is hooking up with a Mexican actress who is trying to break into the american film community, but I can’t help but wonder. Also, if I just ended a relationship with Miley as soon as she started to become trashy I would be thrilled and would love to make the contrast.

    • giddypony

      He is just beautiful.

    • H2olovngrl

      Oh Miley…you are such a fool in so many ways…

    • bertkeeter

      Def not a fan of that satin lapel jkt w that shirt n tie! Not Twerkin for me!

    • http://piblet.tumblr.com/ Anastasia

      He could do a duck face and 10 peace signs for all I care. All WERQ and no side-tongue, thank god.

    • stephbellard

      He’s SO much hotter than Miley that no shot needed to be fired at all.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Oh snappity fucking snap, for working the grown ass man look. Image control WIN.

    • Rebecca Jay

      Put your fingers away, kid. You look silly.

    • ninamadeleine

      Holy Jeebus. Liam, you kicked the snot out of Miley. Get some.

    • bellafigura1

      Well, he’s certainly outclassed her. It’s a low bar, but still!

    • Erica_Vuitton

      He IS nice to look at and the accent makes me….hot to say the least but it will be interesting to see if he can actually pull off the role of Gale once it gets more challenging. SPOILER!! He’s going to be featured very heavily in the first part of Mockingjay and I have very serious doubts his acting skills can handle it. But uh… yeah nice suit I guess. I see this as more of a saving face outting. HE was the one caught kissing someone ONE DAY after they confirmed their split. Sad the reaction is its her fault just because she’s acting a bit wild and wearing some revealing clothes So much for “for better or for worse” eh? Perhaps if he can’t handle it they ARE better off not together.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I want to make out with him so hard.

    • BrooklynBomber

      Of course I have no idea what you’re talking about. ETA: Just read the other comments and I see who the breakup was with.

      BUT it’s nice to see a tie bar! But isn’t it supposed to go down lower on the tie??

      • Kimberlini

        Exactly what I was thinking about the tie bar. Needs to get rid of the neck beard too.

    • decormaven

      Thank you for wearing a suit that fits. Thank you for wearing an interesting shirt, a tie clasp, and shined shoes. Thank you for looking respectable in public. Keep on sailing, sir.

    • Michelle Wilson

      It looks like a victory lap.

    • TAGinMO

      He’s purdy, and he certainly looks…OK?…here. But how this is a WERQ is beyond me. Too much going on in the lapel/collar/tie area, and those pants do NOT walk well on him.

    • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

      i dont know. i dont think we should encourage the hemsworths to wear shirts. or clothes.

    • styrch

      We needed a good male WERQ. Surprised you didn’t save this for Sausage Friday!

    • Danielle


    • Kimberlini

      Oh geez…I just noticed the red bead bracelet. Take it off please.

    • Jacob Bowen

      He is DELICIOUS neck beard and all. I would love him with a beard, I would love him if he was weird, but listen to me kittens dear, I would love most if he was QUEER!!!!
