Boy, that’s not your suit.

If you’re going to wear the modern plaid suit, then you can’t get it cut like a banker’s suit. It’s all way too boxy and big on him. And plaid suits require ties and white shirts, to be perfectly blunt. Otherwise, they go straight to “used car salesman.” You tailor that suit and pants, put him in a crisp white shirt and a brightly colored tie with a pocket square and he’d be jaw-dropping. Here, he just looks lazy.

But we’re not even sure plaid suits are where it’s at for him anyway. He’s really striking in a slightly unconventional way and he’s Gaga’s boyfriend. He should be working something a little edgier than this to set himself off to his best effect.

    Those pants are an abomination, but if he keeps staring at me with those intense eyes, I might just forgive him.

    THAT FACE! Somebody needs to break out the smellin’ salts and the faintin’ couch.

    • Trent

      You need to watch him on “Chicago Fire.” It’s a great show, with well-drawn characters, but between Taylor Kinney and Jesse Spencer it’s also Hotness Overload. ** fans self **

      • Lilithcat

        Best things about Chicago Fire are a) it’s actually filmed here, and b) it’s giving lots of work to our great Chicago actors.

        • http://www.flickr.com/photos/divine_aphasia/ Constant Cat

          Agreed! Lots of local shots. My Grandma got me into it, of all people. Love the locals and the duuuudes. Way better than expected.

        • Trent

          Chicago Fire’s spinoff Chicago PD has really good actors, too…including an actress I’d never heard of named Amy Morton who plays desk Sgt. Trudy Platt. She started out as a minor character but was so drily hilarious that they made her a regular. LOVE her. So yeah, great local actors in Chi-town.

          • Lilithcat

            Never heard of Amy Morton! Ack! She’s an ensemble member of Steppenwolf, which has been the training ground for tons of major actors. Tony-nominated for August: Osage County (originated at Steppenwolf), multiple Tony, Drama Desk, and Jeff nominations. She also directs.

            I must say that I’m not much of a fan of Chicago P.D., but perhaps that’s because, as a Chicagoan, I’ve had way too much of actual situations where our “finest” cut corners and violated the law themselves. It makes me sick to see someone like Voight presented as a “good” guy; he needs to be sharing a cell with Jon Burge.

          • Trent

            Heh, I’m now deeply ashamed about my ignorance of Amy Morton…who, as I said, is wonderful on CPD (and WOW! what a resume). And totally agree about Voight, who was introduced as a clear-cut villain on Chicago Fire and then morphed into an anti-hero with shades of grey on CPD. And yeah, we have our share of Voights here in NYC…

    • Evan

      First time I saw him was in Lady Gaga’s music video for “You and I.” That’s how they met. He was ripped in that video too.

      • Kent Roby

        I just googled “Taylor Kinney Shirtless” (really, there should just be a “shirtless” or “naked” search engine where you don’t have to type those words in!), and he is indeed a fine specimen, even below that handsome face!

  • Aurora Leigh

    Holy crap, he is handsome. Those pants give me a sad.

  • Danielle

    Is it wrong that I want to see him in (and subsequently help him out of) a floral print suit?

  • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

    It looks like one of Nathan Fillion’s “Castle” suits. Which is not really a compliment.

    • https://twitter.com/actual_grownup aly

      hahaha this is SO TRUE. and so sad.

  • kimmeister

    He looks like Eric Dane.

    • Eterne

      Right? I thought it was from glancing at the thumbnail. Then I was sad it was’t.

    • MW

      I very briefly thought it was Gerard Butler.

  • KinoEye

    Oh, there are clothes here?

    Also, Gaga, why do you get to keep all the hot guys? Leave some for the rest of us.

  • marlie

    See, I think he’s terribly average-looking. Not BAD, but just… average. Which is why I still find it so weird that he’s Gaga’s boyfriend.

    As for the suit, “Boy, that’s not your suit.” He needs to send it to one of the quirkier boystars.

    • Kent Roby

      I did not know they were dating. I will console myself by picturing him and Steroid Picard showering together while on the road with Steffi.

      • Anna

        He doesn’t really do it for me either, but he just got 100,000x hotter to me in that Steroid Picard shower scene you describe.

    • MilaXX

      I don’t. Underneath it all Stefi is just average looking. I actually like them as a couple. Having a normal looking guy somehow makes sense to me fir her. Otherwise it would feel like Depp/Heard levels of fake.

    • lunchcoma

      I find their relationship amusing because I imagine that when she’s done with all her Gagaing, she goes home, watches Real Housewives, drinks cheap Riesling,and chats with him about whether he wants to reheat the Chinese takeout or order pizza.

      • demidaemon

        You are probably right. Which makes them kind of cute together.

    • Lilithcat

      Which is why I still find it so weird that he’s Gaga’s boyfriend.

      Maybe because she’s not so superficial as to think that looks are the most important thing in a relationship?

      • marlie

        It’s not his looks… I guess I wasn’t clear. Perhaps it’s a case of “opposites attract,” but he has always seemed so “generic frat boy to me,” that I was genuinely surprised when I learned that they were together, because she’s anything BUT generic. I would have assumed that she’d be with someone as equally “out there” as she is.

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

          He certainly doesn’t seem like someone she’d be able to talk about art to!

  • sugarkane105

    That’s Gaga’s boyfriend?? Damn girl.

  • boweryboy

    If you looked up “big lug” in the dictionary his face would be next to it. I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

    • Coolekat

      It’s good. Trust me.

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

    “Well hello, hello, hello!”

  • Ashley Ellen Wilson

    He’s got a Henry Rollins edge to him–I’d love to see him go in that direction

  • Trickytrisha

    Wow, he’s Gaga’s boyfriend… like that’s a good thing? Anyway, to me he looks like a construction worker who had to get dressed up for a buddy’s wedding.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      Is it wrong that I find that image sexy?

      • demidaemon

        Well, you are probably thinking of what happens after the wedding. 😉

        • ShaoLinKitten

          The idea of a construction worker, with those big, rough hands, wearing a suit that makes him a little uncomfortable… yeah, it’s sexy. You know exactly how you can make him more comfortable. What can I say, I have a blue collar thing.

  • MilaXX

    I think the biggest offense is that the suit isn’t fitted properly in any way , shape or form. The color is fab, but the execution fails. I also hate the shape of those shoes.

  • Chris

    Lady Gaga’s boyfriend, or as I call him “The handsome uncle werewolf from Vampire Diaries.”

  • andi56

    I’m sure it’s not my age, but a lot of these boystars look alike to me.

    • sagecreek

      It is not your age. You are like me, timeless and classy.

      • andi56

        !!! Yes, we are! Thank you!

    • Imasewsure

      I was thinking he could easily do any of the car chase movie franchises (or Star Trek or Captain America, etc). Generic handsome…

  • Imasewsure

    Didn’t know anyone in Gaga’s camp was allowed to smile… someone is going to get a scolding!!! Would love this jacket with jeans I think… here not so much but I appreciate the (small) effort!

  • crash1212

    He has ruined a lovely plaid.

  • brittak

    So – because his GIRLFRIEND is Lady Gaga, HE should dress in a certain way? Now that makes no sense to me. And BTW – he’s hot in everything ;o)

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Hot Damn.

  • Evan

    I think he’s attractive, but these photos aren’t very flattering, not to mention that horrible suit. Also, I think he’s gained a few pounds since he was in her “You and I” music video. Damn, he was hot in that with a six pack and everything.

  • quiltrx

    He’s kind of hot….I like the jacket but the pants take it to clown town. And your shirt collar is a shitty mess.

  • formerlyAnon

    I love that dusting of grey in his hair.

    The less said about the rest of this, the better.

  • Dany

    The grey hair sells me, I’m fanning my exploding ovaries.

  • MannahattaMamma

    I reel at the thought of what a herculean task it must be to be Gaga’s boyfriend. Phew. No wonder he has grey hair.

  • thecitysleeps

    He’s so attractive and I like the colour of the suit. That’s it.

  • Crystal


    • Lilithcat

      Well, considering what she walks out the door in . . .

      • Crystal

        Yes but I feel like Steffi would at least slap some glitter on that bitch.

  • Patrick Cleary

    That suit should be worn by some skinny gay star with a bow tie and an adorable boyfriend on the arm.

    • AnneElliot

      Exactly !!! Ship that suit off to Alan Cumming, after some major alterations.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    This is a beautiful man deployed to poor effect. I can see him in a tight, slightly shiny grey suit with narrow lapels. This just makes him look schlumpy when we know for a fact that he’s anything but.

    • demidaemon

      You used the exact same adjective to describe this that I did. It’s Schlumpyville.

  • demidaemon

    Well, he tried at least, but this makes him look schlumpy. he is not a schlumpy man. Did Gaga suck all your fashion chops out of you, Taylor? get that shit back, quickly.
