Posted on October 22, 2013

There’s just not one thing to argue against here.


Michael B. Jordan at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills, California in Calvin Klein.


You WERQ that impeccable shit, Michael B. And that smile. Snaps of RESPECT.

Also, you’re adorable.

    • Feathers McGraw

      I like that his ears are sparkly.

      • kmk05

        And a groomed chin, too!

      • misstressofsylar

        speaking of sparkly, he really reminds me of that other vampire lead in The Originals. Now that’s also one fine specimen of a man!

    • xay

      Impeccable suit and smile and dimples. I think I’m pregnant.

      • Introspective

        girl. me too!! & those dimples alone have me hoping that i have a boy who replicates all that yumminess.

      • mshesterp

        DAMN that man is fine. That suit! Le sigh.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      I have just been blinded by his flawlessness.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Male celebs, put this in your book of “This is how it is done”!

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Oh, now *this* is just what the doctor ordered. Good morning Mr. Impeccably Adorable.

    • Donyelle

      best accessory is his beautiful smile

    • Rhonda Shore

      it’s so unusual to see a man w/his suit pants hemmed properly!`

      • tereliz

        And his hands out of his pockets.

      • mshesterp

        WHY does that have to be so hard for male celebs? He makes it look so easy!

      • Yolanda13

        Thank you! Yes! The break between the pants and the shoes perfection. He needs to hand out his tailor’s card to all the male celebs ASAP!

    • gabbilevy


    • ashtangajunkie

      I still want to weep whenever I see him because of The Wire. But at least I can’t cry tears for puddle pants. He’s all kinds of adorable.

    • Sobaika

      HEY THERE.

    • MsKitty

      Aww, our little Wallace is all grown up.

      • skitzfiggitous

        And grown up quite insanely well, I might add.

    • Anna Vasquez

      The Adjusting-Your-Watch move is a very welcome alternative to Shove-Your-Hands-in-Your-Pockets.

      • Darren Nesbitt

        I’ve always thought these contrived poses were lame but I completely agree when I walk the red carpet in my dreams I’m going to do the Adjust-Your-Watch move every time.

        • Chickadeep

          You can also change it up with the “Adjust-The-Cufflinks” like they did in the Golden Age of Hollywood. It always looks suave.

        • Anna Vasquez

          And then there’s always Adjust-Your-Tie.

          I mean, really, as long as they’re not using Adjust-Your-Junk.

          • shopgirl716

            I guess the female equivalent would be the old adjust the bra strap.

            • Anna Vasquez

              Definitely a NO on the red carpet, but I don’t think touching your shoulder is really comparable to grabbing one’s crotch. Now, adjusting the bra cup…

        • marlie

          And it keeps the guystars from shoving their hands in their pockets all of the time.

    • Diego!

      Gorgeous suit! I love his tie too! WERQ indeed!

    • Chaiaiai

      It’s truly unfair that a man that handsome and put together is also an incredible actor. SO unfair that I remove my clothes in protest.

    • lrober03

      He does the same “adjusting the watch” pose every time. But it’s better than hands in the pockets!

    • boweryboy

      I hate the earrings. It’s so 1992.

      • DTLAFamilies

        Haven’t you heard? The 90s are back.

        • boweryboy

          I think I deliberately did not read that memo.

      • ana170

        I don’t think they ever went out of style in the black community.

        • boweryboy

          You’re telling me. My nephew has an entire jewelry box of “bling”.

          • ana170

            They’re likely around to stay. I thought it was weird at first but now I’ve gotten used to it to the point where I prefer it to the one earring look. Ed Bradley was the last person I saw who could get away with one earring and that was because he was usually turned sideways in interviews so he didn’t look lopsided.

      • kimmeister

        I can’t say I’m a fan either, but they’re better than Colin Farrell’s hoops.

        • marlie

          How is it that CF looks douchey with the double hoops, but MBJ here looks snazzily put-together with his double-eared bling?

          • demidaemon

            It’s all about proportions. Also, everything else is so well done it doesn’t detract but yet adds to the look. It’s a very careful balance.

          • fursa_saida

            It probably helps that as far as I know one of them is, in fact, a douche, and the other is not?

        • littlemac8

          You wanna know who looks ridiculous his his earring?s? Harrison Ford. that’s who!!!

    • mjude

      what a doll!

    • BobStPaul

      Hate the tie but kudos for the way it’s knotted.

    • MoHub


    • Kelly

      At least in the pics, the suit looks a little too shiny for my tastes. But it’s a great color and nicely-fitted.

    • tereliz

      Sharp dressed man. I love him.

      • Bexxx

        So women DO go crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man.

        • fursa_saida

          Also a brown-eyed handsome man. We’re two for two on sung criteria here.

    • Julie Chase

      Oh Wallace, you grew up real nice. That is just a handsome charming man right there.

    • jen_vasm

      One of my favorite young actors! Looking sharp indeed!

    • Desiree Jacobs

      that smile makes me smile. good tuesday!

    • MilaXX

      I hate that I feel like a dirty old lady looking at this guy.

      • mjude

        we can still “look” my friend :)

      • Fordzo

        I’m hesitant to Bless his Sausage. How old is this handsome boy-man?

        • MilaXX

          Early 20’s. He’s legal, but I’m old enough to be his mama.

        • http://heartprintandstyle.com/ Vivi N

          26. Good enough age to look without feeling dirty.

    • AnniNoone

      I am not usually into men whose skin looks softer than mine, but *damn*.

    • MelVT

      Not a fan of the pube chin. Sorry.

      • Bexxx

        THIS SUNDAY ONLY: Pube Chin vs. Neck Beard! Sunday Sunday Sunday!!! The fight of the century! Only on pay-per-view!

        • filmcricket

          Gigglesnort. You win the internets today.

      • Fordzo

        Can’t unsee.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      This is a style that only black men and gays seem to nail!

      • boweryboy

        Damn. Then what’s wrong with me? I’m black and gay and I can’t seem to nail the suit look. It doesn’t help that I hate wearing them, but still…

        • formerlyAnon

          There is no “but still,” hating wearing them is probably the root cause. Do you really put the time, attention and, god help us, the not inconsiderable money into a suit & its details that you would if you didn’t hate? And then you’re probably too disgruntled once you’re in the thing to project the “dressed to kill, lookin’ good & I know it” vibe you’d have if you’d dressed up and felt great about it.

    • Kimmu

      He looks pretty amazing. Now to cross our fingers that the rumour that he has signed to play Johnny in the Fantastic Four reboot is is true, because, man, those dimples + Johnny Storm = yes please

    • alyce1213

      Almost a WERQ for me, just wish he’d chosen a better pocket square, and I honestly don’t like the chin beard on him.

      • conniemd

        Yeah, the tie was a bit disappointingly blah. A tie with a bit of red or yellow would have popped that blue. Have stylists forgotten the concept of print ties? They are all plain black or gray these days.

    • f_yeah_marie


    • Monday1900

      As soon as I scrolled down “Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man” started playing in my head. He looks fantastic!

    • another_laura

      It’s a little bit ‘baby banker’ but I’ll take it.

      • MaggieMae

        Agreed! I’d also like to take out the earrings!

        • boweryboy

          Yes to the earrings!

    • carnush

      Adorbs! Love it.

    • amber.

      Yes yes yes yes yes. I love that you featured him here. I love it. He looks fantastic.

    • Fordzo

      My only issue is that he looks like Mariah Carey’s husband. What’s his name? Nick Lachey? I could google, but I just don’t care.

      • Brookwater

        the first thing that popped in my head was Nick Carey, but it is actually Nick Cannon. Wow, poor thing that I am giving him his wife’s last name!

    • korilian

      Ooh, I love him. I wonder if he’s trying to look more mature with that goatie. God knows he had no trouble pulling of teenager in Chronicle.

    • ScarlettHarlot

      There’s Wallace! There’s Wallace! It’s ok D’Angelo, we found him! He moved back to that house on the Eastern Shore, focused on school, and grew up to be a nice, well-adjusted, sharp-dressed man.

    • Eclectic Mayhem


    • FeminineLipstique

      Wallace! Vincent! Whatever, you look so handsome.

    • PastryGoddess

      Happy Tuesday to me!

    • Brookwater

      I love that everyone is calling him Wallace! I do feel like a dirty old woman though considering I “saw” him grow up on The Wire. He does look delish here. My only (minor) quibbles here are that you cannot see his shirt cuffs and the tie. In some pictures it looks like he had a spill.

    • kimmeister

      I do have one quibble – his shoulders are clearly broader than the shoulders of the jacket. Everything else is impeccable.

    • Imasewsure

      Kind of boring but he looks so sharp I have to give it snaps too. And pulling on the cuffs is a much better thing to do with your hands than finger guns, two thumbs up and the ever popular, putting them in your pockets! Double snaps Cutie!!

    • poggi

      He looks very handsome, and I love the shade of blue. It looks more fun than navy. Event he grey tie has a little sheen to it, that makes it look more festive too.

    • http://heartprintandstyle.com/ Vivi N

      My baby!

      Okay, that is all.

    • bxbourgie

      Wow! I may have to start paying more attention to this little cutie right chea!!! Yummy yummy!

    • Danielle

      The suit is flawless, but the smile is really the best part.

    • shopgirl716

      I fell completely in love with him on Friday Night Lights. He is adorable AND oh so talented.

    • Monabel

      The dimple!

    • Kate4queen

      Perfection :)

    • webslice33

      dude earrings are so 2000s…otherwise he looks good

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I irrationally love him and have since The Wire, so he can do no wrong in my book. He looks great here. Hope he gets an Oscar nomination.

    • Crystal

      omg. he is so beautifully groomed.

      I haven’t seen him in anything since Chronicle and he was WONDERFUL in that. You better work, you handsome dude you!

    • marlie

      I needed that. Thanks, TLo!

      Also, AH-MAZING smile!

    • formerlyAnon

      I deeply admire the severely parallel-to-the-pocket line established by his handkerchief/pocket square.

    • Adriana_Paula

      he is the cutie-est of pies.

    • MiriamMc75

      What a cutie!

    • Hetha Innis

      His style actually matches his talent! Love love love him!

    • berkeleygirl

      This young man just has ridiculous charisma.

    • hellkell

      It will be a long time before I see him and don’t immediately think, “where Wallace at?”

    • Pterodactyl111

      What a beautiful smile.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Just from these pictures, he’s going to be a great Johnny Storm (because let’s face it, Johnny’s personality is basically just being cute and charismatic). Haters to the left.

    • quiltrx

      You’re adorable…my only suggestion is to tip the chin down a little in pics. A bit ‘up the nose’ in the first and last–the rest are great. Love that smile!

    • ItsDicey

      Impeccably sharp.

    • Joseph

      Soooo adorable….

    • kathrineb

      Don’t know who he is, but he is looking sharp!

    • sk8tfan

      What a delicious man!

    • Lilyana_F

      Why, hello, Mr. Jordan…
