A-freaking-dorable.

It would seem it’s virtually impossible to style him without resorting to ’60s and ’80s redux, through a very English lens. What else are you going to put him in but Chelsea boots and skinny striped pants? Or two-toned brogues and a double-breasted blazer? It’s what God intended. Not that we’re complaining, but we’d love to see some stylist take him in some totally unexpected direction next time. Cowboy Matt. Thug Matt. Sailor Matt. Basically, a whole Village People of Matts.

And listen: no one’s cheering him on to future success louder than us, but we’re sad to report that Ryan Gosling film he did looks unbearably pretentious:

 

Freshman year film school project.  Better luck next time, Matt.

    • Danielle

      YES. This is Doing Things for me.

    • Molly Dowd

      Eh, Matt Smith doesn’t do anything for me on a good day, but especially not this one. Too much boy-twee for me.

      • sienna elm

        Boy-twee definitely!

        • MoHub

          Maybe he needs to be Taylor Swift’s next squeeze.

          • Skippymom1

            That’s funny. But I’m afraid if that happened all the twee combining would make something implode. I am not sure what, but I can’t imagine it would be pretty.

      • twocee

        Boy-twee is right. And I say that as a huge Matt Smith fan.

        • http://www.alisarivera.com/ Alisa Rivera

          It’s Boy-twee that doesn’t make me want to choke him so it’s a win as far as I’m concerned.

      • Vee

        Yea, he never did it for me. He reminds me of the joker in an old batman cartoon.

    • Noah

      Well, based on the open fly in the park picture, maybe he’s gearing up for a remake of Cruising.

      • kimmeister

        Hello, gratuitous underwear shot!

        • demidaemon

          Nothing wrong with that, for the most part (see my other comment around here for more in-depth analysis).

    • hughman

      Granted, I’m no Matt Smith fan but this does nothing for me. It all looks very costume-ish and forced, like he’s in a remake of the movie “Absolute Beginners”.

      • Anna

        So spot-on about Absolute Beginners! You made my day with that reference, the book the movie was based on is one of my favourites.

        • hughman

          I was all about Sadè in that movie!!

          • Anna

            Omg, me too! Killer Blow! I loved her with the short hair and that green sequined dress.

        • http://dorothydamage.wordpress.com/ Dorothy Damage

          I love the book as well! I need to reread it soon.

      • melisaurus

        He look like Brad from Teen witch

        • Skippymom1

          ::laughing:: yes, yes he does. And it isn’t a good thing.

    • CatLady

      Black and white striped pants will forever remind me of Beetlejuice. They do look nice on him though.

    • HeisenbergHattie

      Boring face. Great clothes.

    • Kirstin McAulay

      If pants cannot do up on snake hip Matt Smith then there is no hope for any other living being

    • MilaXX

      Love the photo-shot. Very Matt. I heard the Ryan Gosling movie was nearly universally panned at Cannes. Karen Gilliam’s new sitcom looks awful as well.

    • Chuck Barthelme

      Awesome shots, all. And those two toned brogues are FABULOUS.

    • deelup

      He’s not my thing. But if he were I think I’d need to look at these photos um, privately.

    • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

      he pretty.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      I dunno, gents; normally I’m on board with Matt Smith but these are pictures of a man who knows where to bury the bodies.

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      That fourth shot where you don’t even see his face front on.. that shot is sheer perfection. KILLA.

      Love everything about that pic from the unzipped pants to the shoes to the shrug to the Hawaiian shirt.. and the side profile.. more shots of that pls! :)

      • Violentcello

        It’s the third one that did it for me. I can’t handle the little finger flick. I miss that big goofy mug.

    • Hysterectomypants

      Cute like a puppy, that boy. And those stripey pants are just fab.

    • Allison Angier

      I can see his contour makeup from Trenton but I can’t find his eyebrows.

      • WendyD

        He left his eyebrows on some future planet around the middle of season 5 of Doctor Who.

      • Sonny

        Yes, why does he not have eyebrows?! If the eyebrow-less model trend circa 2010 taught us anything, it’s that excellent bone structure is not enough to make someone look good without visible eyebrows. I am disproportionately bothered by this.

        • kimmeister

          They are there, they are just very light colored. Have you ever tried doodling eyebrows onto a picture of Whoopi Goldberg? What a difference it makes!

    • Denise Rambo

      He looks like he should be on “True Blood” or some other vampire show/movie.

    • marlie

      He’s so freaking adorable. I love how much fun he has with clothes/style, even if it’s within a fairly narrow range.

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      But how is that open-fly picture not Douche Matt?

      • Hysterectomypants

        I know it SHOULD be, but I seem to find it adorable instead. “I can’t figure out my pants–come help me!”

        • WendyD

          That is it EXACTLY!

        • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

          “How did my zipper fall down? Hello? Why are you running away?”

          • Jessica Freeman

            Literally LOL on that one.

    • MoHub

      Are those PeeWee Herman’s shoes in photo 3?

    • Capt. Renault

      A Rosary is not a necklace, Matt.

      • ConnieBV

        Yeah….. I’m not even a currently practicing Catholic, and that made my gut clench.

    • WendyD

      Charter member of my British Cheekbone Harem. LOVE HIM FOREVER. He’s also charming as all get out in person.

    • mmebam

      He does absolutely nothing for me, but I believe his brand of dandy more so than that of Daniel Radcliffe.

    • PastryGoddess

      I’m pretty sure I recently declared that waif is not my steeze. So why am I tingly all over looking at these. Is it the lack of bitchface? The sheer rightness of those clothes on his body?

      What the hell has happened to me?

    • elemspbee

      thanks for showing us your muscles.
      and thank you T’Lo for covering the spectrum on this Friday sausage.

    • jspark

      His face reads hooligan but his style reads dandy.

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

      “Village People of Matts”

      YES.

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      Love. Him.

    • Alyssa

      Yes, exactly what I needed!

    • suzanne77

      Didn’t they try Cowboy Matt Smith in Dr Who? “I wear a Stetson now” and then BLAMMMO! River Song.

      • MoHub

        Stetsons are cool.

        • suzanne77

          Bow ties are cool.

          • NormDeplume720

            And fezzes.

            • suzanne77

              I love all the Bitter Kittens, but the Whovian ones are my favorite. **love**

            • WendyD

              GERONIMO!

            • MoHub

              I’m personally more Classic Who, but I tried to give NuWho a chance. Didn’t cut it for me, though.

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        Has someone made the requisite “Hello, Sweetie” joke yet?

        • suzanne77

          My birthday gift this year was a t shirt with a picture of Hello Kitty on it, dressed as River Song. It said, “Hello Sweetie” on it. It was the best gift ever.

          • Qitkat

            I WANT ONE!

    • Mothra

      I am trying to figure out which look I like the best, but honesty I think I hate all of them.

    • Imasewsure

      Love that he showcases himself AND the clothes every time… not my type in theory but I always love looking at this guy!!

    • FibonacciSequins

      How very 80’s.

    • Julia Malin

      Is it just me, or do those pants look like the same ones that the jock kid was wearing for the moon landing on Mad Men this week?

    • LeelaST

      Love the footwear.

    • ashtangajunkie

      So very cute. I would enjoy any version of Matt Smith, I think.

    • Constant Reader

      Not doing it for me. Maybe because I know *that guy* in the 80s. Actually, many iterations of *that guy* and I am not nostalgic. They were kind of assholes. And MY GOD that movie looks dreadful.

    • formerlyAnon

      I think looks #2 & #3 are the best for him -yes, the rather retro-Brit ones. I admit I laughed at the glimpse of his red underpants in #4. Perhaps there’s too much Sherlock on my Tumblr.

      I think he’s too old to get away with ironic rosary necklaces, and too much of an established working actor for it to look like any kind of an attempt at serious shock value or religious commentary.

      Nonetheless, he is cute as can be. Wish they’d picked smiling shots that brought his face alive, though.

    • crash1212

      That second picture is everything. Those striped pants. Those shoes. Yes, please.

    • JP

      Too young for me to lust after, but I do like the quirky ones.

      As for that trailer — WTF was that? He shaved his head for THAT?

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

      Not my cup of tea.

    • smayper

      The striped pants are making me remember the football player on Mad Men.

    • smayper

      I hate fly open pictures. Just always, forever, on anyone.

    • majorbedhead

      Eh. Not doing it for me at all. And WTF was that trailer? It’s like it cut off half way thru. So, he likes to burn things and grab random hockey bags?

    • Jen

      I just scrolled down this whilst squawking. He’s so lovely.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      There should be an entire Village People people by different versions of Matts.

    • amanda lynn

      I love that this looks like it was taken in 1990.

    • barbarienne

      The Cumberbitches have converted me to their cult, but the Whovians have failed to make Matt Smith happen for me.

      • Qitkat

        That is the great thing about Who, there are enough types throughout the run to find the one Who makes you smile, laugh, squee, and/or melt. I’m a Tenner, myself.

    • kimmeister

      The cover with the squiggly movement lines makes me think he’s going to jump out of my screen, a la the video for “Take on me.”

    • The Counselor

      He pulls off most of the hard-to-wear clothes, but I cannot with the last picture–that is full-on lady-blouse in the same print as a pair of shorts I remember Kelly Kapowski wearing on SBTB.

    • demidaemon

      I like most of the shots, but the cover shot pose is weirdly crotchtacular (he looks like he is cupping himself with his fingers through the belt loops) and the unzipped pants shot (though I do love the view it’s giving) is one step away from streaker/sex offender (though, again loving the view; hating the tone).

    • GenieinTX

      When I saw these pics on tumblr, someone used the tags – #I wear your grandpa’s clothes #I look incredible. Damn, I love this boy but I really hate this shoot. And Gosling’s movie – no thank you. Let’s hope he brings the hotness in Terminator.

    • TwiddlyStun

      What? Can’t quite hear you – My pie’s open? That doesn’t make sense – say again?

    • Alexander Peterhans

      I don’t get the love for him at all.

    • Nicoclaws

      Love the hair on him. Makes him ways sexier in my opinion.
      Hate that styling though.

    • http://ashurcollective.com thehousesparrow

      Detroit got excited when Ryan Gosling came to Detroit, we had high hopes. We even had little stickers with his face on it that said “SAVE DETROIT”. They were cute!

      Anyway, I’m sad the trailer doesn’t look promising. I published a graphic novel set in Detroit; hopefully I can market the hell out of it and get it turned into a movie soon. I’m sick of other people coming here and shooting half-ass stuff.

    • BitterOldQueen

      “what, doesn’t everyone wander through the park with their pants all undone on a sunny Sunday morning?”

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

      He should play Spike Spiegel in a live-action Cowboy Bebop. I can see it now.

    • LadyVimes

      Please, please give this boy a pair of skinny leather pants and tell him to smolder. I will give you all the monies. All of them. And my body. (too far?)
