    • @Biting Panda

      He looks….over-medicated. And a little like a doorman. Sorry BC, but I’m not feeling the love today.

      • Nikko Viquiera

        He can open my doors anytime!

        • Evan

          Pun intended? ;)

      • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

        Is that what it is? He just seems off.

    • Ms. Schmidt

      Something about that lapel looks odd. Love the color, tho.

      • 3boysful

        The best I can come up with is that the proportions are too much for his frame.

    • Glam Dixie

      That coat is pretty fabulous so I’m not sure why I’m not really loving this look as a whole. Huh. Maybe it’s just not his coat. DTNYC (dude that’s not your coat).

      • Emily Dagger

        I feel the same way — I think it’s actually Idris Elba’s coat. Give Idris his coat back, Bradley! You’re both lovely, but you’re two very different sorts of lovely.

        • MissusBee

          Or Cumby. A touch of rakish insouciance is needed to pull this off, plus long legs. Otherwise if Jack the Ripper was a lounge singer, this is probably how he would have looked.

        • Trent

          Agreed — Idris would rock this. Also, I’ma need Bradley to grow his hair out some and shave the stubble on his neck.

          Is it me, or is he starting to look like Ralph Fiennes?

      • kimmeister

        The coat, while gorgeous, is in a color that does nothing for his coloring.

    • leahpapa

      Completely distracted by the French translation of the title. And here I thought it would be “Bluff Americain” (or is “bluff” feminine?).

      Oh, also: that coat looks like livery and the model’s face will give me Reagan-esque nightmares for weeks.

      • leahpapa

        Someone please, please tell me that, in the ’70s, Parisians at the hottest discotheques were doing The Bluff.

      • Rhonda Shore

        The model’s face is very Kraftwerk.

        • Sarah

          That model – wow. I thought he was a mannequin.

          • random_poster

            Me too!

          • Sam Smith

            Yeah, he’s got Ken doll hair.

        • boweryboy

          Showroom dummy

      • alyce1213

        I think since “Bluff” is an English word, it has no gender. OK, I’m overthinking this.

        • demidaemon

          All French words have gender, as far as I know. I mean, they have an academy dedicated to determining gender.

      • Susan Cholette

        But at least this translation is better than Cooper’s other big hit, “Hangover,” which the French morphed into “Very Bad Trip” (yes, still in English). On another note, for those still unconvinced of Bradley’s appeal, listen to some of the interviews he gives while promoting his films in France… in French. Tres adorable!

        • 3boysful

          He’s no slouch–I believe he went to Georgetown, and speaks pretty fluent French.

    • deelup

      Step right up, the circus is in town.

    • Jessica Freeman

      The opposite of coat porn.

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

      Missing a top hat and a cheerful song about orphans.

      • Tatiana Luján

        Yes! I was thinking we looked as if h had come from a Dickens’ novel.

      • Danielle

        I spit out my tea!

      • 3boysful

        You win the internet today!

      • Little_Olive

        Laughter burst on the subway

    • Carla_Charlton

      He is the king of ill-fitting jackets/coats; they’re always too tight. He also needs to take care that his hair product doesn’t make his forehead shiny.

    • marlie

      From what I can see of the coat and the tie, I like it. It sucks that the label is still on the sleeve, though.

      • sagecreek

        Oh, my, I missed that on my first run-thru. That’s inexcusable.

      • alyce1213

        OMG. I missed it on the first look too. I’ve seen it before on people, to advertise the designer or 100% cashmere or whatever, but it is the most crass thing ever. Ever.

        • marlie

          I think it’s more akin to forgetting to un-sew the kick pleat on skirts and jackets. Regular people sometimes don’t know that it should be removed. Celebrities with stylists have no excuse.

        • DesertDweller79

          My mom bought a coat from Calvin Klein with the label on the sleeve like that. I promptly cut it off. It was so horrid I couldn’t let her go out like that.

    • Miss wks

      This guy is close to crossing the line into douchy creepdom.

      • Lori

        I think he crossed that line a while ago and it’s close to being nothing but a dot in his review mirror. That’s just me though. I do not get the fascination with this guy. Never have, never will.

        • Malibufire

          Ditto.

    • Alyssa

      He looks high, but I love the coat. What I would do to get my husband to wear a coat like that…

    • Anna

      Alfred Doolittle didn’t make it to the church on time.

      His face looks really weird.

    • Sobaika

      Anyone else getting Hefner vibes?

      • leahpapa

        Can’t unsee it now. The shiny lapels are doing no favors.

    • Garcia Loca

      What in Oscar Wilde heck is this?

    • rissa42210

      The grooming is ruining that coat.

    • Kate4queen

      Boy, this is not your coat.

    • Noah

      The Romanovs better hide their shit.

    • MilaXX

      How is he doing this? He’s wearing really nice coats yet on him they transform from coat porn to doorman.

      • Pennymac

        Snort! Ahahahaha! *giggle* Yup!

    • In_Stitches

      Gorgeous coat that doesn’t fit him at all. It somehow looks too tight and baggy at the same time.

      Also, I would never judge a regular person for not pairing their outerwear to their regular clothes thoughtfully, but a celeb wearing borrowed clothes? Sure. That jacket does not belong anywhere near a light blue dress shirt.

      Also again, your hair…you aren’t in One Direction. Comb it.

    • The Versatile Chef

      Is he stoned?

    • mjude

      its just all wrong.

    • MzzPants

      That coat seams incongruent with the rest of his ensemble.

    • luludexter

      he dresses too much like a banker to pull off Westwood. dude, that’s not your coat!

    • boweryboy

      That coat belongs on Idris Elba.

    • alyce1213

      It clearly doesn’t fit him, physically and style-wise. Also neck pubes.
      Is the model a human?

    • acevedob

      I’m trying to decide whether I love or hate this coat. Maybe I just hate the lapels.

    • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com cheekypinky

      Very definitely a DTNYC, gorgeous though both the Dude and the Coat in question are.

    • allcapsERINN

      Not feeling it. Not sure why. Maybe it needs to be unbuttoned. Or worn with a scarf. Or something. At least he’s wearing a coat.

      • Shawn EH

        It’s too tight. Double breasted is hard to do, even for Bradley.

    • crash1212

      Not loving that coat and really not loving it on him. It’s….top heavy? Something is amok with it. Also….did they shave that part into the model’s head? Cuz it looks scary.

    • Camille Chapman

      I think its the tie underneath. Its so boring for such a fab coat.

    • Kimberly Wilcox

      All I thought while looking at these pictures was, “Nooooooope”

    • KT

      Those ridiculous lapels are RUINING the look! I’m not in love with the double breasted style on him either, but when combined with the lapels, the effect is comically widening. Barnum & Bailey in the house!

      Too bad, considering that the rest of the look is really nice, and I love the maroon shade of the coat (the only thing I like about it).

    • nycfan

      Bradley, that is not your coat. Send it to Idris. He’ll know what to do with it. ;0)

      • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

        what a yummy idea.

    • decormaven

      What a waste of a perfectly fine coat. Wrong coat for his body type.

    • DeniseSchipani

      The model scares me. Ken doll hair plus thousand-yard stare.

      • kimmeister

        Plus the one empty sleeve tossed up on his shoulder.

        • DeniseSchipani

          Jesus, I didn’t even notice that; I was caught in the glare from his plastic hair wig. Yikes.

      • SugarSnap108

        Seriously creepy. He looks like a walking mannequin.

    • ellatheingenue

      That coat is fab, but too boxy for him.

    • Janet B

      The coat looks like a costume on Bradley, it’s wearing him.

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

      Boy, that’s not your coat. It’s a lovely one though. I think it belongs to someone with longer more angular features. Baby face Bradley here looks like an extra in a school’s version of Les Mis.

    • DesertDweller79

      Hmmm, no, I don’t think so. I like the coat, but not on him.

    • unbornfawn

      Love the coat. Just don’t think it is “his” coat.

    • Deedles

      Whooee! Is it me or is someone channeling his inner Rod Taylor from “The Time Machine?”

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      I bet he just leaves a slick of slime wherever he goes.

    • hmb

      …my eyes hurt from being drug back and forth between being distracted by the bad fit and Hugh Hefner-esqueness of the overcoat, to the crazy discord between the color of his hair and eyebrows. WTF?

    • bertkeeter

      Bradley…HUNEY, you are supposed to take off that label on the left sleeve of coat after you buy it….and definetly before you wear it on the Red Carpet….Oy…you straight men!

      • formerlyAnon

        No. No pass. Even straight men know this. I swear.

        I can only guess that he put on the clothes on the hanger(s) the assistant handed him without paying any attention whatsoever. Now, I admit, that *might* be a straight guy thing.

        • bertkeeter

          Fire the assistant…or at least a good thrashing!

      • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

        bert, is that you in your avatar? if so, you are looking fabulous!

        • bertkeeter

          Yep, It’s all due to exfoliating! It works, it really works! :)

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      More coat porn-I love this one and covet it-and if Bradley came with it, so much the better-I’m feeling cougarish at the moment.

    • quiltrx

      Coat porn! But…Boy, This is NOT Your Coat. It just doesn’t ring true on him. It’s like he’s trying on something at the Vincent Price museum. He doesn’t have the moxie to pull it off.
      And honey, you remove the sleeve tag! (Don’t feel bad, I always manage to leave the ‘holding’ thread in a kick pleat.)

    • MannahattaMamma

      it’s sad – he’s getting more and more plastic looking in each public appearance — here he looks a bit like someone popped Zac Efron’s head onto a man body. Coat, on its own, gorgeous. Give that coat a starring role.

    • http://www.readbarbara.com/ ReadBarbara

      It’s irrational, but every time I see him the phrase “douche canoe” comes to mind – this picture cements it. And I don’t even use that phrase in real life. All through American Hustle my brain was shouting “douche canoe with a perm!” Sorry, Bradley. I’m sure you are a perfectly decent human being.

    • Southern Peach

      Button nipples.

    • formerlyAnon

      The label on the sleeve is grounds for a severe, SEVERE reprimand for whomever prepped his clothing.

      I won’t make assertions about his state of . . . medication based on his appearance (I looked stoned in every photo taken of me for about 2 years in mid adolescence, a period during which I touched neither drink nor drugs), but I will allow that if he had that coat on for more than 10 hurried minutes and didn’t notice that label, I might be convinced.

      Agree with all the “lovely coat, but not your coat, and also: doesn’t really fit” comments

    • demidaemon

      Why can’t anyone button all their buttons properly!? *foams at mouth*

    • pdquick

      The shoes appear to be bespoke. So why couldn’t someone hem the pants (or as already been mentioned, cut the label off the coat).

    • gefeylich

      He just tries too hard all the time, and usually misses the mark. He’s also a little too…chunky to pull this off.

    • Daktari100

      Uh uh, no.

    • Clash D

      Sleeve tag…I want to reach into the internet and rip that damn thing off. Gawd it triggers my OCD.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      he’s a cute guy and that’s a gorgeous coat, but the twain should never meet. american bluff? the model is a scream! own your own living ken doll.
