And now, the Sermon on the Step-and-Repeat:

Blessed are the skinny jeans-wearers, for they show us all the face of God. In their crotch.

Blessed are the Chanel bootie-wearers, for without them, how would we know what pretension looks like?

Blessed are the Wrangler shirt-wearers, for they operate under the delusion that it looks manly when paired with the aforementioned skinny jeans and Chanel booties. 

Blessed are those who give the thumbs-up sign on the red carpet, for they are the inheritors of T Lo’s wrath and will need all the blessings they can get.

Blessed are they who suffer the persecution for having ombre-dyed hair, for that shit went out of style 6 months ago, dude.

Blessed are you, who toil and labor to say something bitchy, when you know you’d totally hit this. 


Rock on, RPJ. Rock on.

  • Mothra

    The Wrangler shirt really pulls the whole thing together.

    • formerlyAnon

      Or maybe saves it.

  • Melanie

    damn it. i *would* still totally hit it.

    • JasmineAM

      …and not rise from the house/bed/cave for three straight days.

      • Lori

        I see what you did there.

    • fromanotherplanet

      Look at your life sis, look at your choices.

    • evave2

      Melanie, I was about to say I’d fight you for dibs but I will be generous and say, you first, madam. Save some for me.

      • Melanie

        you can have him after i break him. 😉

    • Glam Dixie

      I would hit that and then back up and hit it again.

  • didgerdoni

    I just get irritated every time I look at him. Too old for the So-Called Life days and too hygiene-oriented for the current iteration.

    • KES4K

      THIS! I just can’t with him. The affectation practically radiates off the page.

      • OffToSeeHim

        I’m just going down the page and liking and commenting on every single post that talks about what an affected, pretentious parody of himself he’s quickly becoming. I think he’s been reading his own press. And he’s wearing women’s jeans!

        • I mean, I say props to the women’s jeans in theory. None of that gender BS over here. But those jeans? And those boots? And that shirt? And those tattoos? Bless. No. A bitter, jealous no, but a no nonetheless.

          • OffToSeeHim

            You make a good point Heron – those are NO ONE’s jeans.

        • J.W.

          I’m on that train with you…

        • misstressofsylar

          I saw a woman modeling those jeans and immediately thought, “What would Mindy Lahiri do?”

        • He’s got about a month before he hits Johnny Depp levels of affected, pretentious parody.

    • OffToSeeHim

      So, SO, SOOOOO THIS!!!!!

    • TM

      Eh, still think Brian Krakow had more potential.

  • Maryanne525

    I know it’s his schtick, but I really, REALLY just want to deep-condition his hair and then brush it for him, Marcia Brady style.

    • Rhonda Shore

      Thank you! And lose the ombre! ENOUGH! *runs from the room screaming*

      • Vegas Girl

        Seriously with the ombre! I have a cousin who just got it done last week and posted it to Facebook asking for opinions. All her friends were squealing with delight, and I was the only honest one who was like – “HELL NO! Get thee to a salon quickly!”. I don’t think her friends like me very much.

        • demidaemon

          They know you are the voice of truth and fear the day when you layeth it on them. And, really, they need to get their eyes checked.

        • DebbieLovesShoes

          Bless you for being honest. I get all ragey when I see yet-another head o’ ombre. Speak the truth for all of us!!

    • smayper

      I was dying for a brush. One of my sons has maximum length hair, and although he takes care of it better now than he did at 16 (ponytail or man bun consistently), I still desperately want him to condition it and brush it and trim it. I’m all for long hair on men with beautiful hair — but only if they care for it.

  • Kate Andrews

    Ugh, those boots! They’re the same color as my makeup!

    • Kent Roby

      So, you’re saying that they’re “Ughs”, not “Uggs”!

  • Kristen

    Homeboy needs some anti-frizz serum like yesterday.

  • Introspective

    way to get on my irrational hate list homeboy.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    No hits here Couture Jesus, that beard/hair looks to have things living in it….

    • Glam Dixie

      He has such a massive case of Pitting, or downplaying his attractiveness that infuriates me. The man is jaw droppingly gorgeous and he thinks he doesn’t get taken seriously cuz he’s pretty. Get over it Jared. No one takes you seriously. You’re pretty and you sing/act well. Own it.

      • schadenfreudelicious

        This, he is fighting the pretty so hard he is becoming a parody of himself..

        • Morgendorffer

          It’s like the second coming of Johnny Depp. In ten years or so, he too will be a windchime.

    • myandyleigh

      Verily, I say unto you, having cast a wary eye on Rocker Pixie Jesus and recalling his own admonition to judge not, that ye be not judged, Meta Jesus wept.

  • PastryGoddess

    I certainly would like to pray on THAT alter.

    • MoHub

      Wellm, alter might be correct since he’s wearing women’s pants, but I think the word you were looking for is altar.

    • kimmeister

      I just saw the video yesterday from which your profile pic is taken. His pose in the first pic reminds me of that scared kitty.

  • mjude

    LOVE YOU TLO! amen…….

  • Karen Belgrad

    Buddy Christ, in living formation (Google it). Would still hit it, just because he took Angela Chase’s hand in the hallway.

    • smayper

      I LOVE Buddy Christ, and I thought of that too. George Carlin FTW.

  • Janet B

    I don’t want to see anyone else wear those pants.

  • Danielle

    God BLESS him for showing up to a Chanel show in a Wrangler shirt. GOD BLESS HIM.

    • MartyBellerMask

      That’s the best part of this outfit. The worst parts are the Chanel stuff.

  • I’m so angry at myself for this, but I’m so weirdly into him.

  • sojo

    I met him in New Orleans years ago and he is sooo pixie, and also very kind, and intensely captivating. (I had that whole room went silent tunnel vision thing happen when he took my hand in his hands and said thanks for coming to his show. Swoon!!) He’s still so hot, even with that busted ombre. In Rocker Pixie Jesus’ name, AMEN.

  • Kent Roby

    I just love that he remains his own wacky self, even when couture is thrown in the mix.

    • smayper

      Gotta agree. Pretty much hate the whole lower half, but I have to give him points for being wacky and trying stuff. Sure it reads pretentious, but there’s a part of me that thinks — maybe he’s just having fun and chuckling as he gets dressed. If so, live long and prosper Rocker Pixie Jesus!

      • Kent Roby

        I’ve never gotten a pretentious vibe from him, perhaps because he seems rather shy at times. Even his wild hair, beard, and sunglasses seem like an attempt to hide his pretty-boy looks.

  • JauntyJohn

    A bit of beard trimming would not go amiss, and I am not loving the color of those boots (the idea of them I can kind of hang with, it’s the color actually which is the record scratch for me), but with all that said… yeah, count me in. I am Team Leto.

    • StrandedFashionista

      I agree. It’s just a little clashy with the pants.

    • kimmeister

      I don’t think peach suede boots belong on anybody.

  • Anique Ashraf

    man who wears ladypants without fuss: instant attraction

    • Kent Roby

      He wears kilts well, too (though not often enough).

    • There is something kind of magical about it. And absolutely hilarious.

  • Terri Terri

    Blessed are the irredeemably silly.

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    I just burst into laughter at Barnes and Noble (Ok, so I should be doing work…) at the sight of the pictures, then again at the blessings! I may be escorted out soon, but hot damn I cannot take this seriously.

  • JasmineAM

    Aw I love glam rock Jesus! He does look to be pretentious, but in interviews and other things he’s like the complete opposite.

  • dustinrhodes

    Yes, he looks ridiculous, as he almost always does. And yet somehow, he also looks delicious, as he almost always does.

  • Sarah

    The boots are
    A. Honkin’ Enormous Looking
    B. Not as badass as he’d like them to be, what with the “Chanel” logo
    C. A gross color.

    • Kent Roby

      Since he’s wearing Chanel couture for women, I hope/think/imagine that he has no delusions of the boots being badass.

      • Sarah

        His choice of headsuit, in addition to his “I will wear chick jeans and WHAT OF IT” attitude sort of beg to disagree. But, you have a point.

    • formerlyAnon

      A. True, B. Way True, C. TESTIFY! Oh SO True.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      All they need is princess pony (or whatever) on them and they would be perfect night night slippers with his matching pj’s and blanky… (shudder)

    • demidaemon

      I agree with all of this. Also D. The worst part of the outfit.

      • formerlyAnon

        By far.

  • gabbilevy

    My boss told me the other day he used to run with Leto and his crowd in Virginia in the 80s. They aren’t in touch anymore, which I consider to be a loss for us all.

  • FibonacciSequins


    • Anna

      Same here. The outfit doesn’t really offend me because it’s his style and really works for him, and although I can appreciate it, I wouldn’t hit it.

      • FibonacciSequins


  • Anna

    POSITIVELY DYING at the Sermon on the Step-and-Repeat.

    And now, I have to say, “Blessed are they who suffer the persecution for having ombre-dyed hair, for that shit went out of style 6 months ago, dude,” the next time I see someone ombre-haired.

    • makeityourself

      Excellent work gents. You’re on fire today.

      If it makes you feel any better, if you look realllllyyyyyy closely you’ll see that he has grey roots. Which means that he has been in the salon getting those touched up every three weeks or so (while maintaining the ombré,) just so he can stay a pixie.

      • Anna

        Ha! You’re right! Funny how something that’s supposed to be all, “Don’t give no fucks, I’m just growing this out,” is actually VERY high-maintenance.

  • Laura Poehlman

    Blessed are all the boys who wear girls pants, because if you can someone will love you for it.

  • OffToSeeHim

    OMG, douche, douche, DOUCHE!! Still loathe you Buddy, and your douche-goggles too. I’m sure you lose sleep over it.

  • Bill Craven

    Why do I hear the chorus to “Jesus Christ Superstar” in my head when I see this?

  • MilaXX

    I like the look on him except the boots. It looks like he’s giving up on the ombre hair now that awards season is over.

  • formerlyAnon

    I’d definitely consider doing a guy with Way, WAY Too Much Beard For Me if the rest of him looked like this. Hate that color boot leather, and the pants are pretentious as can be – but are the only thing (other than the genetic gifts) to distinguish him from ten thousand other young guys on the scene here in the Southwest, so I can allow them to pass.

    If he’d shave he’d be amazing again.

    • FrigidDiva

      That color on the boots looks like skin. Skin boots just don’t make me want to wear them.

      • demidaemon

        It is a bit Hannibal Lector/Nazi Lady with her lamp, now that I think about it. Yuck.

        • FrigidDiva

          Zachary Quinto’s Leatherface from AHS would probably have a pair in his closet.

  • nannypoo

    Trying way too hard.

  • Cheryl

    Yeah it’s kind of goofy, but I like it. What I don’t like is the damn logo on those Chanel boots. As for the ombre hair, I kind of think it’s just a bad dye job growing out.

  • SAA

    Dude does nothing for me… His eyes are the only thing I think are beautiful. His hair is disgusting (those fly-aways haven’t seen a brush in days), and his whole look screams “Hey! Look at me! I’m not scared to throw together girls’ pants and pink boots” while looking utterly ridiculous and like he spent 3 days putting the “look” together.

  • Thomas

    He really needs to shave the neck beard. That’s what takes it to gross territory.

  • JW Hosenmesser

    God, I love you guys.

  • Stephanie Pulford

    I think he should stop dancing round it and just fully embrace the Jesus drag – start wearing nothing but robes and sandals everywhere

  • FrigidDiva

    You know, I’m fine with this until I get to the boots. He could have put on some black biker boots or some unlaced combat boots or Doc Martins and I’d be on board. Also, I can’t deal with that beard. His hair and beard combo look like they smell like hobo BO.

  • Pennymac

    I’m pretty sure the lord and savior has better taste than this….

  • The beard needs a serious trim. Very serious. Otherwise, I like what he’s doing to shake up the perception of what men can wear. Keep it up, d00d.

  • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

    stank. boot.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Classic TLO commentary!!! And… Amen!!

  • Wink

    Just because the women’s jeans fit, it doesn’t mean you should wear them.

    • kimmeister

      That applies to the women too.

  • I think he is wearing actual rosary beads.

  • Aidan B

    Dear God. I am so over this incarnation of him. Blessed be, however, for providing extra TLo hilarity.

  • Gatto Nero

    I kind of love that he wore Wrangler to a Chanel show.

  • Kent Roby

    I’d rather see this type of individual style any day instead of seeing yet-another gorgeous star wearing head-to-toe loaned couture that looks dreadful and shows absolutely no hint personality of the person wearing it.

    • Gatto Nero


  • Frank_821

    I don’t mind him in the lady jeans. The fact they have it in his size is kind of nice. . They’re subdued compared to half the things that came down the runway this past month for guys.

    The boots are ridiculous. Makes me wonder if that was a deliberate move

  • StrandedFashionista

    I have this huge love for the androgynous, not but quite androgynous look he rooks. The intersection of the masculine and feminine is just SO RIGHT on him.

    • Denise Alden

      Well said!

  • MartyBellerMask

    Sandpaper chaps. Whut.

    All the credit for wearing lady pants though.

  • Tracy_Flick

    He needs to step away from Pinterest.

  • snarkykitten

    y’anno, I could almost sign off on this. But the weird ripped crotch is just tacky.

  • Jessica Freeman


  • Jesus is so fashionable these days.

  • vahtel

    I’m impressed he’s wearing ladies jeans.

  • Shelby

    You know, I get that he’s breaking just about every law of fashion and pretentiousness, but I love this. Maybe because I can’t get past “Rocker Pixie Jesus” without grinning. I need more of this in my life. Peace out.

  • jonnyf8

    Truth! Was so happy to get to the last line!! In a heartbeat!! Bless you T-Lo.

  • boweryboy

    Usually I can appreciate his off kilter rocker who gives a shit fashion sense but this, this is ridiculous. And gross. Nothing goes together.

  • Kimmu

    Come on and rock me, rock me, Sexy Pixie Jesus

  • He’s so consistent in his toolishness that it wraps around to genuine.

  • Nazzzy

    Buddy Christ!

  • PinkyK

    Jordan Catalongo is Jesus!?! Who knew!?!

    • ShaoLinKitten

      CATALANO. Though that may have been a Freudian slip.

      • PinkyK

        Ha! Perhaps!

  • Sam Smith

    I don’t like any of these pieces but somehow all of them together (although boots still questionable) and him and it works for me.

  • kfizz

    Ugh. For someone who thinks about fashion and style, I am really still a dirty hippie, and even I keep my hair cleaner than that. Wash it, dude. It’s a Chanel show.

  • fromanotherplanet

    I can literally smell the pungent stench of douchiness seeping through my laptop screen. Lupita, thank god you ran away from this abomination.

  • anonylind

    Ew. I wouldn’t hit that. Ever.

  • evave2

    He can wear this off-the-wall wtf stuff and carry it because of his attitude. Jennifer and Emma just looked wilted.

    He looks, hey, I break ALL the rules and I got an Oscar. Worship me.

  • Shawn EH

    This cowboy-Chanel thing is all Karl’s fault, right? I don’t like to question Karl.

  • throwslikeagirl

    Heck, I’d settle for just washing his feet.

  • frannyprof

    I LOVE YOU, TLo!!!! Your next book needs to be a fashion Bible. Seriously.

  • crash1212

    I’m usually on the side of Let Jared Prosper….but….this…..this is…..it’s just….wow. So bad. That beard looks like it might need delousing soon.

  • Aurumgirl


  • Patrick Cleary

    I can’t hate anyone who’s willing to cross gender lines for fashion, or to cross gender lines for almost anything. His poses are just plain chills-inducing, though.

  • He’s wearing ladypants. No.

  • marlie

    I think those pants are ridiculous, yet he’s managing to pull them off. I think it would be more pretentious if he’d paired them with anything other than a low-key top. But I loathe those boots. They’re ugly and they don’t go.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      If he didn’t manage to pull them off, I’d manage to 😉

  • msdamselfly

    who is RPJ?

    • AndieJay

      First three words of the review 🙂

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    I just want to be best friends with him. I’d really like to be in on the conversations going on in his head.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Back when I was in my forties, I had a short-lived affair with a man who was 16 years younger than I…And he looked a lot like RPJ here. So, yeah, I would totally hit that, in fact in a way I already have. I have a sweet/dirty memory every time I see him.

    • conniemd

      Back was I was in college in the early 70’s I so fell in love with every guy who looked like that – rocker, hippy, dreamer, anti-establishment rebel. Those were the days.

  • @Biting Panda

    Best TLo commentary, ever.

    Thank you Jared, for shaming me so deeply, for everrrrrrr getting a lady boner over you, during Oscar time. This is EXACTLY who you are and I was an idiot for forgetting. Tell your bestie, Uncle Terry, I said hi.

    I’ll be wearing my hair shirt and saying a zillion prayers to all the gods, in hopes of forgiveness.

  • cocohall

    He has taken the standard rocker uniform (jeans, boots, t, and denim/flannel shirt) and re-invented it so that you have to consider each item, rather than read the look in one take. Brilliant. Perhaps this talent to break things apart and serve up a fresh take is what makes him a good actor. I don’t find him attractive; that neck beard is just so off-putting, but he is compelling.

  • prettybigkitty

    He so pretty.

  • e jerry powell

    I’d hit it with every hitting thing I could find.

  • SuziQue

    I love this! Rocker Pixie Jesus…perfect description. I want my own…

  • Diane Iafrate

    Jared I love you, but you’re bringing me down…

  • Linderella

    I do love those pants, but everything else reeks of “Look at me, everyone, while I pretend I don’t care if anyone looks at me!”
    Oh, and my dear young man: THIS is how you dress for a couture show? Really, sweetie?!
    None of this should be construed as meaning I would not hit this, however. Please, I totally would, so hard.

  • demidaemon

    It’s all true. All of it. Despite all that, I am in awe of his ability to wear women’s skinny jeans and rock them better than the model.

  • Jecca2244

    my older sister (2 kids, in her late 30s) is obsessed with him. I never got it.

  • Imasewsure

    That’s what I was going to say… yes you are right dear Uncles but I would totally hit this little Pixie. I heart Pixie Jesus

  • MaggieSays

    I don’t hate his ombre. It looks realish.

  • JynxTheCat

    really nice color story

  • You guys. I love you guys.

  • Gretchen Bourg


  • dash1211

    Oh, Uncles. You’re just the best.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Rocker Pixie Jesus has just implored the flock to peace out, man!

    Is Rocker Pixie Jesus dating a manic pixie dreamgirl?
