Nolan Funk for Versace Spring 2014 Ad Campaign

Posted on December 13, 2013

Thank goodness for Versace. They make a gay fashion blogger’s life so much easier.

“Glee” star Nolan Funk is the new face of Versace for the Spring/Summer 2014 ad campaign photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

For instance, all we have to do is slap up these pictures. It doesn’t even matter what we write here.  Honestly, we don’t even oh fuck it who cares you’re not reading this

  • Excellent whiteboard post!

  • Vickiefantastico

    I’m sorry, I may have to turn in my woman card, but this guy doesn’t do it for me. I don’t know who he is, but his face in the first picture just screams a-hole to me. Not saying he is, but that’s what I get from it. Now I’ll move out of the way…

    • Agador Spartacus

      I was about to post the exact same thing. His facial expression ruins it for me.

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        I feel like I should get tested just for looking at these.

        • Lucía Gavello

          For real, I can smell his cologne from here.

          • It’s a little Axe Body Spray, isn’t it?

          • demidaemon

            Nothing wrong with that, as long as the man smells FINEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

          • Constant Reader

            I was just about to post the same thing! Good thing I scrolled through first.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        The facial expression in the first photo is just jackassery. He does have the right body for Versace.

    • barbarienne

      Right with you. Here’s this guy in this outfit, and instead of looking at his abs or leather-clad thighs, my eyes immediately went to his hands and judged them not manly enough. Something is wrong here.

      • Ginger

        There isn’t enough muscle on those leather-clad thighs to interest me. Put a male cyclist in leather pants and then you’ll get my attention.

    • boweryboy

      No, gurl. Keep your card. In fine print it states you’re a woman of discriminating tastes. Also, I couldn’t agree with you more.

      • Jecca2244

        someone get me some Lee Pace, Benedict C, or Tom Hiddleston quick!

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      I’ll go mantis on him: I’m so killing him after sex.

    • Ginger

      Nope…your woman card should remain intact. The first pic makes me think he’s trying to channel Mark Wahlberg’s underwear ad from the early 90’s. Ohhhh sweetie, you’re no Marky Mark. Move along.

      • Erica_Vuitton


      • GorgeousThings

      • ana170

        You say that as if not being Marky Mark is a bad thing. (Sorry that’s my not-at-all-irrational-in-my-mind hate for Mark Wahlberg talking.)

      • H2olovngrl

        This is almost repugnant in it’s douchetasticness.

    • BKagainwiththesweatpants

      ITA. All I can see is Vanilla Ice in that first pic. BLECH

    • formerlyAnon

      Less a-hole, more juvenile, hasn’t really grasped sexy. Also: how can someone with the face of a boy who drinks himself unconscious on beer twice a week keep his body fat so low?

    • marlie

      His expression in the first picture makes me want to punch him. So you’re not alone.

    • Griffinqueen

      I agree–too much douchebaggery.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Funny, cause I thought the face was Justin Bieber at first because he looked like such a D-bag.

    • SugarSnap108

      I think every one of these shots reeks of douchebaggery.

    • ConnieBV

      THIS. This kid is like Beiber’s older brother. As a matter of fact, I was going to post “Kudos to whoever styled Bieber so butch” until I realized I had the wrong douche.

    • Chris

      I liked him better on Warehouse 13 when he was Claudia’s nerdy boyfriend who worked at the Hardware store and was in witness protection.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    Thank you for giving my husband something to read while I salivate. You meet the needs of everyone here!

  • Glam Dixie

    I don’t recognize this kid from Glee. Who does he play? Oh yeah, I’m supposed to be looking at the abs/package, but he’s just a boy. I need some man up in here.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      He played The Boy Who Came Between Blaine & Kurt in season… 3 or 4.

      • Glam Dixie

        OH, I recognize him now, thank you!

      • crush on you

        Um, no. That was Sebastian, played by Grant Gustin. This one played Hunter Clarington, newest head of the Warblers who pushed them to use steroids in a presentation in season 4.
        (Yup, I know, I know. I just… sorry, I love Grant and can’t stand Nolan.)

    • I, however, recognise him as the douchey prep-school murderer from Castle.

      • conniemd

        Ha! That’s why I thought he looked familiar douchey. I agree with the other ladies that he’s not to our taste, too much the look of porn star I’d be afraid what I’d catch from touching him.

        • He seems to have fined-down his face and bulked up the rest of him since that role!

  • When he grows up he might be OK.

    • Janet B

      He’s older (27) than I thought, but he still needs to grow up a bit.

      • I’m surprised – I honestly would have thought you’d need to be under 25 to look this douchey.

      • marlie

        Like @foodycatalicia:disqus said… “When he grows up, he might be ok.” 😉 ETA: 27 is practically fetal.

  • Rebecca Harvey

    I may become a lesbian to avoid this guy.

    • hughman

      Me too and I’m a gay man.

      • Evan

        Yeah. I wouldn’t mind somebody who looks like him, just not someone who acts like this. Unfortunately, most of the guys I’ve met who look like like him act this way 🙁

        • boweryboy

          It seems to go hand-in-hand, doesn’t it?

          • Evan

            Yup. Totally

          • boweryboy

            It’s like because they’re gorgeous they feel it affords them the right to be an asshole and if you don’t like it there’s twenty other people willing to put up with it just to be with them.

          • Evan

            Oh The joys of being gay. I see it in straight guys too, but we both know that gay people tend to be more superficial. Stereotypes exist for a reason!

          • Lori

            That’s also why a fair number of conventionally hawt, over-confident people are lousy in bed. It’s like they think that granting someone the great privileged of looking at their hotness up close is all they need to bring to the party. Um, no.

        • hughman

          Look like, act like, dress like, smell like. No no no no.

          • Brad Watson

            Great, now i’m stuck with the Patty Duke Show theme wedged in my brain.

    • boweryboy

      All kinds of win!

  • TDSE

    I love Awkward! I didn’t know he was working with all of that.

  • Leah Elzinga

    He doesn’t do it for me, but they certainly seem to know their market. The dudes that are going to buy this stuff are TOTALLY the ones posting selfies with that EXACT expression.

  • hughman

    Donatella : “Bring him to me. This one’s blood will make me very very young again.”

    • formerlyAnon

      Now that’s one I REALLY can’t repeat if someone asks why I’m snorting aloud in my cubicle

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Now if the lame biopic on Lifetime had gone full on camp and included this scene I might have tuned in.

  • PeggyOC

    Versace’s new scent “Eu d’Douchbag”.

  • MissaLena

    My first thought was “Corey Haim hasn’t aged a bit!” Then I remembered that I know that’s not true.

  • boweryboy

    For a moment I thought these were highly photoshopped pictures of Justin Beiber. Too smooth and too young for my tastes.

  • Anna_Cecilia

    Facial expressions are hella cheesy. The first photo is very Justin Bieber.

    And the very scientific “Picture him on top of you” test confirms it. Nope, not for me.

    • Oh ick!

    • marlie

      I didn’t know that was a test, but now I’m going to use that as my guystar grading tool. Thanks!

      (Edited to sound less icky.)

      • Anna_Cecilia

        I sadly can’t take credit for this test, but it’s very effective.

        • formerlyAnon

          Indeed, weirdly powerful. I busted out laughing at the mental image. As if.

    • Constant Reader

      On top of me? Ewwww. I can’t imagine even willingly shaking this guy’s hand.

    • Melanie

      i’d hit it. but i probably wouldn’t like myself very much afterwards.

      • Anna_Cecilia

        LOL that this is still getting replies, you guys are hilarious. And fair enough, his body is slammin’ (albeit too smooth for my tastes). I guess you could focus on that while he’s rockin’ you.

  • Evan

    Douchetastic, esp. the first pic. But surprisingly he has a lot of variety in his facial expressions. Maybe he’s not such a bad model after all.

  • mmebam

    I feel like if I were to scratch and sniff the print ad, I’m going to get a big old whiff of Axe. $1000 Axe with the Versace name, but Axe…

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    Is it just me or there’s something very funny about putting a Medusa head on male underwear?

    • boweryboy

      I have a pair of undies I got years ago from H&M with a HUGE Medusa head on the ass. I couldn’t resist.

      • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

        I’m seriously considering to buy some Medusa underwear to turn men into stone, if you know what I mean.

        • boweryboy

          LOL! They have pills for that.

  • MikeW_Vegas

    The douchebag is strong in this one.

    • stephbellard

      The T-Lo copyright phrase is, “The whiff of douche is strong with this one.”

  • Miss wks

    I don’t give a Funk.

  • clatie

    I kind of want to kick his ass.

  • KT

    Douchey but FINE. Damn.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    I know they wanted the opposite… but i’m really turned off by the dropped pants. Can’t explain why just makes me go ICK.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Perhaps the dropped pants are another tired visual cliche that needs to go away.

  • formerlyAnon

    The suit photo makes me think undressing him might be a goal. The other photos just make me want to laugh. *sigh*

  • snarkykitten


  • Madam Von Sassypants

    SECOND PIC ONLY. I’ll take that version, only please.

  • Heather

    Nope. But the comments are hilarious!

  • marlie

    All I want to do is punch this guy. My “Douchecanoe Alert” is going off like crazy.

    • Pennymac

      Ha! I should have scrolled before posting!

  • annabelle archer

    Butter Face.

  • Imasewsure

    Guess I’m officially straight (and a chick). This guy does nothing for me… still love the Sausage Friday smorgasbord!!

  • sekushinonyanko

    This boy’s on Glee now? I quit in like season 2 but I see I need to come back. Because DAYUMN!

    • Telperion

      Unfortunately not. He was just a guest-star in season 4 but still had one of the funniest scenes of the season. He’s good!

      • sekushinonyanko

        Questionable choices continue…oh Glee…

    • lesmaha

      I’m with you!! Have never watched Glee, but maybe I made a mistake….

  • conniemd

    Oh, and I noted that no one else mentioned that there is nothing sexy about a man’s hair underarm (at least to me).

    • marlie

      I don’t think it’s inherently unsexy, but this “LOOK AT MY PIT” pose is really bad.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I like hairy men. So there is *something* sexy about armpit hair. I have no problem with seeing it.

  • Blair Sylvester

    Reads more awkward and Zoolander than sexy , I think the face on most of these shots needed to be photoshopped out

  • Pennymac

    Oh, I read it. Because even though he’s a fine piece of man candy, those facial expressions scream douche canoe.

  • kimmeister

    I’ll give him points for at least having several different facial expressions instead of just one.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    No TLo, you didn’t have to write a damn thing. The Bitter Kittens ran with this one. I’ve enjoyed the comment section more than anything I’ve read today. What a preening little douche-nugget.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Had no idea who this guy was, so I Googled. These are the only pictures in which I found him remotely attractive. So whoever shot this, nice work. He looks gay as fuck but extremely hot.

  • Jacob Bowen

    2nd picture is the ONLY one where I can look at his face…but his body is bangin.

  • Courtney

    Hot bod, but he’s got tool written all over his face. Definitely the sort for admiring in still pictures only.

  • Blair Sylvester

    the whole dancing with myself thing in the last shot is so awkward and clone number 2 is grating cheese on clone number three’s abs . this amuses me grately

    • Lori

      I see what you did there.

  • Just Me

    Ewww…I think I need to go take a shower to wash off the stench.

  • e.marie

    Meh. He made a great sexy geek on Warehouse 13, but he just looks like an arrogant douchebag here.

    • martha

      who did he play on Warehouse 13?

      • e.marie

        Claudia’s boyfriend, Todd…briefly. He was only in a handful of episodes in season 2, but they were awfully cute together. It’s the only thing I think I’ve seen him in, actually.

    • Oh that’s right, the witness protection computer hacker boy.

  • quiltrx

    I don’t know who he is and he looks like a real dick, albeit a pretty one.
    I will say I LOVE the 3rd shot in the leather…it has a certain Iggy Pop-ness about it.

  • MannahattaMamma

    soo pretty this boy and probably SO much better in pictures as opposed to, say, real life, where he might open his mouth and try to talk.

  • Brad Watson

    Apprentice Douchebag

  • stephbellard

    LOL. I love how Uncle T-Lo thought we’d be drooling over him but instead we’re calling him a douche.

  • LaSylphide

    To be honest, I find this who ad spread to be very odd: weird body positions, and his mouth in that first shot doesn’t even look possible. I have no idea who he is, but it strikes me that if a person has to try that hard to look sexy, well, maybe he really isn’t. Sexy should be effortless; this just looks like hard work. Sorry.

  • Aurumgirl

    Glee is still on?

  • jenuwefa

    I’m assuming Versace knows what that hand sign means?
