Aw, Adam, You didn’t stick the dismount.

This totally works as a declarative, “Here’s my look, world” moment. It both is and isn’t what you’d expect him to look like for this event, making it something of an intriguing head-turn of an ensemble. Love the hair, the shoes and the cut of the suit – for Adam Lambert, if not particularly for ourselves. It’s the right style for him and more importantly, it’s a perfect example of someone taking their personal style and upscaling it for the red carpet.

The problem? It just doesn’t fit correctly. We realize the proportions on that suit are deliberately off, but it’s definitely not supposed to be pulling like that in the jacket. Get that shirt collar standing up and let that jacket out an inch and this would easily be a BoyWERQ. As it is, it’s a strong “Attaboy.” We love the look, if not the execution.
