    • Stella Zawistowski

      Who’s the orange guy? I guess that’s Gloss?

    • lunchcoma

      Hem your pants! Lose the vests already! Shave! Stand up straight! Take your hands out of your pockets!

      You can go, however, Mr. Kravitz. You are a rock star and have permission to dress like one.

      • Donyelle

        They could take some lessons from Maddox Jolie Pitt. 12, groomed and wearing a tailored tux at the Governors Awards.

        • Vtg Fashion Library

          That’s a miracle, considering how much effort his parents generally (don’t) put in, getting ready for the red carpet.

      • Deb Oswald

        Lenny Kravitz- **fanning self**

    • Kristin McNamara

      Never even heard of him, but Alan Ritchson is giving more Finnick Odair than that schmuck from before could ever have mustered! As for the others:
      Hutcherson: Go shave.
      Kravitz: Go shave.
      Hemsworth: Go shave.

      • barbarienne

        Seriously, I was like, “I know he’s not playing Finnick, but damn if he doesn’t look like the picture of him in my head.” Probably abetted by the aqua suit, since Finnick is all ocean-y.

      • SouthernGirlRena

        I got more Ken (as in Barbie’s boyfriend) but I am digging the retro hair.

        • Meg0GayGuys6

          I also thought Ken :)

          • demidaemon

            He does look particularly mannequin-like. Also: game show host-y.

            • Vtg Fashion Library

              And orange.

        • filmcricket

          He could pretty much walk onto the set of early Mad Men unquestioned, couldn’t he? The all-American square jaw look is not my thing, but damn if that’s not a fine suit.

        • cocohall

          My first thought was Malibu Ken; convertible sold separately.

    • Mary Carpenter

      One of these guys looks like a Movie Star! The others do not.

    • Sobaika

      Lenny can always get it. Even in silver booties.

      • Denise Alden

        I know! And those pursed lips: come on, Lenny! Give us a smile!

      • NOLA_gal

        Lenny. Rowr.

    • Bexxx

      Why does the wee Hutchinson look like such a dad?

      • tereliz

        My dad has that tie.

      • lunchcoma

        I don’t understand him at all. Banker Suits, vests that don’t suit him, and now a paisley tie that looks like he did steal it from someone’s dad. He’s 21 years old, and the only youthful thing about this is the badly-managed facial hair.

        • marlie

          He’s the guy version of “frumpy.” I don’t get it either.

      • MilaXX

        He really is teeny. He was on Kelly & Micheal this morning. Michael looked like he was in the land of the Lilliputians.

      • Donyelle

        He’s giving Shire Hobbit accountant realness

    • tereliz

      Liam has perfected his Blue Steel.

    • Emily Dagger

      Who is this Alan Ritchson person, and how can I get one for my own?

      (And will he mind dressing like that, always, and fulfilling all my “silly Tab Hunter, you’re not homosexual! Let me show you…” fantasies?)

      • mjude

        I was just going to say he looks like Tab Hunter!

        • Emily Dagger

          I am SO GLAD I’m not the only one who sees it.

      • boweryboy

        Mmmmm…Tab Hunter.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Leather pants AND silver boots!!! (Love that teal suit.)

    • Jumpingjacks

      Alan you’re orange.. and somehow I’m not sure I can trust or like someone who’s teeth are almost whiter than his shirt. He’s like a douchey ken-doll. Nice colour suit though

      • lunchcoma

        I really do like the color of that suit, and I’d say he’s looking better than most of his male castmates. But, yeah, he needs to lay off the bronzer and do something about the length of his pants.

      • boweryboy

        Orange and blue are complimentary colors…

    • Jaeda Laurez

      O hai Alan Ritchson- that blue is doing WONDERFUL things. I’m pretty much willing to forgive Lenny anything, because of I Belong to You, so I’m not going to comment on anything from the neck down. Everybody else bores me, including not-Thor.

      • marlie

        HA! “Not-Thor.”

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Haaa! I love “Not-Thor”! It’s the only way I can tell the Whatchamacallit Brothers apart! The “Not-Thor” is the lesser brother!

      • Alloy Jane

        LOL, yes. Not-Thor. I feel bad because I saw him and thought to myself, “still not as cute as his brothers.” But I suppose that’s because I am not attracted to boys. I prefer men.

        I <3 Lenny but he's kinda dressed like Russell Brand.

        • NOLA_gal

          A correction: Russell Brand dresses like Lenny, who officially owns the look. Russell Brand’s a pisher when it comes to THE look.

          • Alloy Jane

            I guess that is true, I just never expected to see Lenny wearing something as blindingly metallic as those shoes. He’s always been a denim, jersey, and leather guy to me. But Russell Brand, he’s always in something eye-searingly shiny. Or maybe just eye-searing.

    • Donyelle

      Is Lenny commando in those leather pants? :zooms in:

      • MilaXX


        • formerlyAnon

          And if not, he’s probably wearing underwear made of silk, as fine as spider threads, and insanely expensive. Because if you could, why wouldn’t you?

      • nannypoo

        I hope so.

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

        In my mind? Always.

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          The best ones always ARE commando in my mind, thank you very much!

    • sisterb67

      Ritchson looks like he rolled in the powder at the bottom of a Cheetos bag.

      And where, pray tell, is Stanely Tucci??? I need some Caesar Flickman, stat!

    • Karen Belgrad

      Alan Ritchson is an Oompa Loompa Game Show host.

      • Donyelle

        DAMMIT! That’s what I was thinking! SPOT…ON!

      • MilaXX

        He may be orange & the pants could use a bit of a hem, but I really like the color of the suit and he paired them with the right shirt & tie.

        • lunchcoma

          I’ll give him credit for being one of the few guys at this thing who both took a risk and put in some effort.

        • Karen Belgrad

          The game show host is based solely on his cheesy posing. The suit itself is kinda cool.

      • demidaemon


    • MilaXX

      I still don’t like Josh in 3 piece suits, but overall these guys have the best looks of the lot. Alan is winning er’THANG! and I love Lenny for staying true to his hippy roots. Those silver shoes are his and his alone. Mere mortals dare not try to wear them.

    • Glam Dixie

      Lenny, Josh, shave you necks. Otherwise, Day-um! Boys showed up and put the girls to shame. Love that blue suit on the first orange fellow.

    • formerlyAnon

      God bless, Mr. Kravitz. Not your finest effort, but the breath of life none-the-less.

      Alan Ritchson looks like he stepped right out of a Vitalis ad.

      The rest of youse – would it KILL you to choose between clean shaven and neatly bearded when wearing a suit that costs more than my current car is worth? (Granted, not a high bar, that.)

      • dalgirl

        Vitalis! Perfect. He’s a handsome one, though!

        • Eric Stott

          It’s a nearly cartoonish look but he manages to pull it off

    • nannypoo

      Josh Hutcherson is 21 and he can’t even produce decent stubble. That first guy is orange and has a cup of Crisco in his hair. Liam Hemsworth finished the can. I want to rub my eyeballs all over Lenny Kravitz to get rid of the rest of these images.

    • wisenhar

      1) Lighten up on the bronzer
      2) Who died?
      3) Of course.
      4) Who died?

    • JasmineAM

      Never heard of Alan Ritchson, but more of him please. Kudos to him for actually trying to bring it to this disaster of a red carpet. Of course Hemsworth and Kravitz are obligatory perfect.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Alan Ritchson looks like an illustrated Ford ad from the early 60’s. (Dig.)

    • Kirstin McAulay

      To quote Alan Carr. ‘You see these people and they are orange, like day-glo orange. They are going “it’s natural, it’s natural” and my response is “not unless your dad fucked a wotsit”‘ Gentleman above, please take note

    • Eva_baby

      Alan Ritchson looks like he just stepped from a Mark Goodson/Bill Todman production.

      • decormaven

        1964 catalog model realness.

        • sisterb67

          Oh lord. He is straight out of the Spiegel catalogue. Or maybe the “formalwear” section of Montgomery Wards!

          • decormaven

            Yes. Put him in a red sweater with snowflakes and he could go in the Sears Wish Book.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Holy shit, I love you for that! If I could “like” a post a million times for that reference, it would be yours!

    • boweryboy

      Ritchson for the win. Although his pants need some serious hemming.

      Hutcherson should give up on the three piece banker suits. He’s clearly not comfortable in them. Also, he should accept the fact that facial hair will never be in his future.

      Kravitz is bringing the crazy and hotness in equal parts. Never change.

      Helmsworth is a big ole bore, but at least his pants are perfectly hemmed.

      • lunchcoma

        Hutcherson really needs to have someone sit him down and page through a bunch of pictures of Daniel Radcliffe, who’s roughly the same age and height and who seems to have gotten the style thing down recently.

        • Eric Stott

          I’d give Hutcherson a “you are safe” pass because the suit is dull but decent, but when your beard makes Johnny Depp’s look good, For God Sake SHAVE!

    • hughman

      I always wondered what would happen if you put a Ken Doll in the microwave.

      • decormaven

        But he would look so cute tootling along in Barbie’s 1960’s Austin Healy convertible.

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        I learned as a kid if you put the barbies behind the microwave, the heat would melt their hair so that it laid perfectly flat. Old-school flat-ironing. Skin unaffected :)

    • princessricky

      lenny kravitz you give me life. and that first guy – is that his mad men audition? ugh that hem

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

      What is an Alan Ritchson, and where can I get one?

    • Jessica Freeman

      The palette cleansing after today’s disasters. I’ll ignore all ill fitting clothes and unkempt facial hairs. Thanks, Uncles.

    • ashtangajunkie

      Lenny is made of love, sex, and magic.

      • Denise Alden

        Of course he is. God, I love that dude.

    • JDreesen

      Game Show Host, Banker, Bouncer, Pall Bearer.

      in that order.

    • suzq

      Blingy, and

    • sagecreek

      The boys are doing way better than the girls. Neck beards and silver boots notwithstanding :)

    • MW

      Josh Hutcherson needs to get rid of the waistcoat, everything about him is rectangular while he wears it.

    • luluransom

      What a waste of breath it would be to tell Lenny Kravitz ‘don’t ever change’.

    • Belvane

      Whenever I see Josh Hutcherson, I think “young Nathan Lane,” and that banker’s suit isn’t helping. On the other hand, somewhere there is a portrait of Lenny Kravitz that is slowly aging.

      • Imasewsure

        Oh my gawd you are right. He looks so much like Nathan Lane and I’m guessing that is not what he is aiming for (sorry Nathan)…. so funny!!

      • kittentoes

        Yes! Thank you!

    • allisankelly

      Lenny being Lenny. Love.Him.

    • Isana Leshchinskaya

      love love love alan ritchon’s suit but the orange/teal combo of face and suit makes him look like a prop out of a michael bay movie

    • MzzPants

      Suits that mostly fit. Thank God.

    • marlie

      Alan Ritchson wins this round, though Lenny come in a close second. I *love* the green suit, and it fits just about perfectly. Plus, he well groomed and (mostly) clean shaven, so props to him. And Lenny is just… Lenny.

      Josh looks like he borrowed his banker dad’s suit, and Liam looks fine, but bland.

    • crash1212

      Lenny FTW. You rock those silver booties and leather pants baby!

    • Carla_Charlton

      Even though I’m excited to see the new Hunger Games movie, there’s no guy in it that has any sex appeal, except Lenny Kravitz. And I have to express my sympathy for Alan Ritchson.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Mr. Ritchson looks like a member of Herman’s Hermits (but with better hair). Everyone else is bland and unmemorable except for Lenny, who once again gets the clear win. Find your style and stick with it, amirite, Lenny?

    • Imasewsure

      Lenny I love you. Do not EVER change but please try to rub off a bit on our little Josh and Liam… They are soooo dull!! Thanks to Alan R for not wearing a black suit too even though his poses are lame

    • rottenkitty

      I love the blue suit. If that’s wrong, I don’t want to be right.

    • CT14

      Cinna has silver shoes.

      And the first guy is a scroll-down disaster of failed hemming.

    • OldPandaDayz

      Hutcherson is still looking like a mortician; the tie is awful; and ugh I can’t even with the scrappy facial hair :( It’s sad becuase he’s perfect as Peeta in the movies. I give Baby Thor the “safe but nice” pass on this one. I commend him for going with the classic but kinda boring look for a premiere, and at least it fits well (although I could just be mezmerized by his eyes). And Lenny is Lenny- never change Lenny!

    • jilly_d

      Hemsworth: dem eyes. God, I fucking love Lenny Kravitz.

    • amber.

      what were we talking about again

    • Henry Maler

      Oh, Lenny. Never change.

    • Deedles

      Oooooh… Sausage Friday came early this week!

    • quiltrx

      Lenny FTW. It would have been a total sex-WERQ (we should make this a thing) except the tinfoil boots were kind of the needlescratch of the look.
      Liam wins for hair and hem.
      Alan gets style points for bringing the That Thing You Do! realness!

    • MannahattaMamma

      And we see again the ancient Hollywood ritual: boys get to wear clothes, girls not so much. I’d like to see any of those men wear a bathing suit overlaid with some kind of gauzy mesh spangled veiling, just to even things out a bit. Harumph.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        You have to wonder if it would be just as unappealing.

        I’d rather women were allowed the same dignity as men, rather than vice versa… though I’m glad we at least have more variety to choose from. (Imagine if men were allowed to wear all the colors we are, and experiment with different lengths and silhouettes.)

        • formerlyAnon

          I don’t wonder – I’m fairly sure it would be just as unappealing.

    • jmorino08

      Who is this Ritchson character and why wasn’t he cast as Finnick?

    • Nazzzy

      Oh how I love me a good Lenny

    • Tippi123

      Alan Ritchson looks so orange, especially compared to the fans. What is it? Fake tan? Love his suit though.

    • Sam Smith

      I luv Lenny but I think this is too much, if he lost the silver booties and lost the long chains, he would have been perfection. As it is, too much, too sloppy.

    • CLoverleaf

      Short men do not have to look short. Why do they keep putting Josh Hutcherson in vests and other items that stumpify him?
      (I say this as the partner of a short man – 5’5″)

    • Scott Cooper

      Didn’t we see Jane Fonda wear Lenny’s outfit a few months ago? She wore it better.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Hey, Alan Ritchson, is The Corny Collins Show looking for a new host? Because you’re hired!

    • Susannah

      God bless that Hemsworth. Not perfect, but tidy enough.

    • Anplica Fiore

      Love Lenny & Alan actually bringing some personality to the Red Carpet – unlike the other 2 bank executive.

    • webslice33

      lenny’s looks was great 15 years ago… alan and mr. hemsworth..yummy!

    • muelonil

      There are definite flaws here, but I can’t help thinking they at least did better than the gals…

    • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

      Thank god for Cinna and Thor Junior. Also, note to Finnick: what Alan Ritchson is doing? That’s what you should have done.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      That green eyed guy. Man O Man.
