God bless this little boy for waving his dandy flag so proudly. Touches our hearts, it does.

That’s some Alan Cumming-level dandyism. Respect is in order, because the pressure for young good-looking male stars to go the manly-sexy route is … well, not as high as the pressure starlets receive to go the girly-sexy route, it’s true. But it’s still pretty damn high, which is why you almost never see male stars who dress like this. And when you do, they tend to be over 40.

We don’t dabble in gossip, but he’s not a hundred percent in the closet, right? There’s an open question and some boy-kissing pics, yes? We ask because we wonder if all this dandyism is his way of being true to himself – or even of testing the waters.

Or he could be, y’know, just a guy who likes patent leather tassle loafers and it’s no big thing. Either way, we give him a lot of credit for being consistently stylish in a slightly boundary-pushing way.

We do not, however, give him any credit for that chain, which just looks stupid.
