Eddie Redmayne in Burberry Prorsum at “Miss Saigon” UK Press Night

Posted on May 23, 2014

Late May seems like an odd time to indulge in some coat porn – even of the English variety – but we’ll never say no to looking at a gorgeous coat, even if we’re more shorts-and-sandals-inclined at the moment.

Cute, dorky guy wearing said coat also helps. Although he still can’t pose to save his life, bless him. Why is he trying to jam his hand in his pocket while wearing a buttoned coat?

  • That is a cute coat and I kind of want it for myself except that I can’t stop seeing that fake top pocket thing as a raised eyebrow and if I’m going to have a face on my coat I’ll go with Prada, thank you very much.

    • Jeremiah Capacillo

      oh my fucking god i can’t unsee

    • FibonacciSequins

      Good faces in places catch.

    • smayper


  • Sam Smith

    Except there are people standing in shorts so it looks a bit odd for him to be wearing a heavyish coat.

    • 3boysful

      Was just going to type that the larger question is why the wool coat when there are bare legs and shorts behind him. Kinda tool-ish.

      • Isabel

        The girl in shorts might be from Siberia or Scandinavia & it’s too hot in London for her. There are other people wearing sweaters & trench coats.

        Even now, in NE Texas, it’s cool enough in the mornings to wear a light jacket or cotton sweater. The weather is weird.

        • SophieB210

          So this inquiring mind had to know. In London the day of the event, it got up to 66F and down to 50F that night. Even if it was cloudy all day, that’s too much coat for that spring weather.

          Now, if he’s making a statement about all the ladystars going barelegged and coatless to events when all the surrounding civilians are wearing down jackets then I wholeheartedly approve!

  • MW

    He lifted it from a set of a Recency period drama, didn’t he? Adorable.

    • sienna elm

      actually – I keep seeing it in dark green and picturing the doorman from Emerald City!

  • He gives me the Eddie Haskells.

    • Judih1

      Good call. I knew there was someone who he reminded me of – you nailed it

  • Nathan

    I want that coat so bad. Not only does it look great, but I think it would help hide the fact that I have weirdly long legs.

  • MannahattaMamma

    what the fuck is with his hair? It’s like a hair meringue. blech.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      He’s had that “Heat Meiser” style forever. I wish he would update it.

      • Denise Alden

        A million points for “heat meiser”!

    • smayper

      A new TLo term is born. So often apt!

  • Henry Maler

    I swear this man needs to get checked for scoliosis.

  • imspinningaround

    Shoulda worn those leopard print oxford jawns, Eddie!

    • sugarkane105

      Would have LOVED that. I also love the model’s shades and bag.

    • MilaXX

      lol, only Philly people understand the correct use of the word “jawn”. Love it!

      • FibonacciSequins

        What’s a jawn?

        • MilaXX

          It’s sort of a multi purpose word. It can be a person as in a side jawn which is a mistress, or a thing like imspinningaround‘s calling his shoes leopard oxfords jawns. Pronounced jaun

          • imspinningaround

            I have NEVER heard “side jawn” before!! LOVE IT.

          • MilaXX

            Really? Oh yeah. Mistresses and guys on the side alike. If you aren’t the main piece you are the side jawn

          • FibonacciSequins

            Thanks, I would never have guessed!

          • MilaXX

            It’s a true Philly-ism

        • imspinningaround

          A jawn is a Philadelphiaism for “thing.” You pronounce it like jownn. Anything can be a jawn, but it usually describes a place, event, or physical object. If, for example, you were going to a bakery and you didn’t see any eclairs in the case, but you wanted one, you might say to the girl behind the counter, “You got any of them eclair jawns left?” Or if you were meeting your friends at an outdoor hipster foodie event, you might say, “What time are you going to that food truck jawn tonight?”

          • FibonacciSequins

            I love learning new words – thank you!

  • WendyD

    I care not about the weather or the context, GIVE ME THAT COAT RIGHT NOW.

  • Wink

    Did he walk over hot coals in those shoes? Why does his hair look like Bob’s Big Boy meets Justin Beiber? What’s in his pants pocket?

    • Kitten Mittons

      I don’t have answers for any of these questions, I’m sorry. I only point out that all three things you question were most likely conscious decisions on his part. Such is his level of try hard-edness.

    • kimmeister

      At first I thought the shoes were “artfully distressed” but now I see that they’re suede and just not properly brushed.

    • smayper

      Bob’s!! Exactly. FTW

  • decormaven

    Gorgeous fabric used in that coat. Very nice selection against his hair/skin tone.

    • Kitten Mittons

      The black fabric on the collar, is that meant to be visible? Is this a collar that is intended to be flipped, or is my agitation justified?

      • decormaven

        I’d say since it’s in a contrasting color, it could be flipped. But I much prefer the way it’s styled on the runway. I think Eddie is awkward in his posing- that’s why he is doing that silly thing of jamming his hand in his pants pocket.

        • Kitten Mittons

          Thanks. It doesn’t look terrible, but I think it’s just the affectation itself that bothers me. Because he’s just a giant ball of affectations. If you stripped them all away, I don’t know what you’d find.

          I imagine him like the alien in MIB, and he just slips into his “Egger Suit” when it’s time to leave the house. Might explain the posing, too.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I don’t think it’s meant to be flipped.

        • Kitten Mittons

          I really can’t tell, but I lean toward your view.

  • MilaXX

    This point guy is such a dork. The coat is great, the outfit underneath, not so much. Those are the same shoes Jude Law is wearing. On Jude they look cool, on this poor schmuck they look awkward.

  • Denise Rambo

    If only he’d worn those leopard shoes.

  • hughman

    Artful Dodger realness.

  • ccinnc

    Just stop with that hair. Don’t know why it bugs me so.

    • TwiddlyStun

      I am completely on your side. It was even distracting me from the coat! Gah.

  • Danielle

    He isn’t reeking of doucheface so I’m enjoying it.

  • LambeeBaby

    He’s cute although he seems to have lost his ginger-osity…. That’s disappointing

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    My ‘Irrational Hate List’ for c’lebs isn’t very long… but this young man is on it.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      I don’t hate him, I just don’t get the fascination. At all.

  • RescueMe23

    All I can see are those horrid shoes. He does nothing for me..

  • How COULD he have worn those nasty ass shoes with that gorgeous coat? It is to weep.

  • Linda LaPaz

    Still punch-able.

  • nycfan

    He looks like he should be a supermodel, but he’s not even a mall model. Cute kid, cute clothes …

  • Yolanda

    Love the coat, but my question is what’s up with his shoes?

  • alyce1213

    Looks like he got caught scratching an awkward itch. I’ve never been a fan of his KitchenAid mixer hair.

  • LadyVimes

    He was made to wear Burberry. But sweetheart, you need posing lessons. Go talk to Matt.

  • nannypoo

    His hair is so bad, also the shoes, but otherwise he’s cute. I do wonder why he’s wearing a coat when everyone behind him is dressed for summer.

  • Amel

    I think if his body’s not at an awkward angle his head explodes. It’s the only answer

  • Siege

    How is he managing in that coat? There is a woman behind him in short shorts — is he cold blooded? Why does he not even appear to be sweating?

    • Mousentrude

      The temperature here is very up and down. Whatever you’re wearing, you’re not dressed appropriately and you’re bound to be hot or cold at some point during the day. Nothing unusual to see winter coats next to summer lights.

  • formerlyAnon

    STILL with the hair style. *sigh* Nonetheless, cute as a bug and a very nice coat.

  • in a pickle

    Why is he doing weird things with a fantastic head of hair?

  • marlie

    VERY nice coat. I think he should give it to me so I can store it away in my closet until next winter.

  • That last picture is an excellent photographic imitation of Hugh Grant bumbling and stumbling in all those romcoms years ago.

  • IraKi

    For some reason he is the one I picture as Nick when I read The Great Gatsby.

  • Milos Mom

    Not a huge fan but at least he is dressed properly unlike other people.

  • He bugs.

  • lundibleu

    Oh, Eddie. You look good, but you really need to get a decent pair of shoes for going out.

    Also, if that coat comes in other colours, I want several.

  • Judih1

    What is up with those shoes? Seems like something Johnny Depp would wear. Total contrast (in not a good way) with the fab coat

  • julnyes

    He is trying with every fiber of his being to ruin this coat . His stupid posturing and hair and shoes and collar popping are all fighting the loveliness of this coat and it pisses me off.

  • andi56

    Um, no. There’s something wrong with the way the sleeves were set in; they shouldn’t be bunching like that. But Burberry has been getting slowly more careless, so this must be par for the course.

  • demidaemon

    The way he buttoned the coat is irritating me beyond all reason. Button it right, you *grumble grumble*!

  • Closet Crisis

    He’s on my irrational like list. Must be the accent and freckles. I can look back the goofy hair and posing. That coat is to die for.

  • JynxTheCat

    How old of a person is this He looks like a very tall 11 year old

  • Love the coat. Hair looks better than usual. Shoes too scruffy. Still can’t pose worth a damn, but I like him anyway.

  • TLJezebel

    OMG he’s so freakin’ cute!

  • cocohall

    He’s an adorable goof. I am old enough to be his mother, so I think he looks endearingly clueless, although it seems there are many BKs out there that find him trying. I only know him from the Les Miz movie. I thought he was one of the few that survived that endless series of extreme close-ups with his dignity intact.

    • formerlyAnon

      I am well old enough to be his mother and I think he’s . . . cute. Were I a young thing I’d be crushing. What can I say? Our tastes are what they are, even when they are not easily explained.

  • Colin

    His complexion repulses me, I can’t get past that. It affected watching Les Miserables and everything. It’s not his fault but….idk. Unique features, not so appealing in my eyes. Love the coat though

  • Mary Lauer

    Now THAT is a redingote, fer sher!! WANT. Except not in that color. It would make me look like a ghoul. 😎

  • Kikishua

    I cannot abide the way he styles his hair – I want to grab him and mess it into normality.
