Celebrity Boys in Airports

Posted on November 10, 2014

Cute celebrity boys dashed through airports over the weekend. Let’s assess them.

Sir? Cab drivers stand over there.

Oh, you’ll defend this, fangurls. We know you.

You, on the other hand, we don’t know at all, James Maslow. All we really know is that your frame and outerwear games are both on point. Also: that you look adorable.

And finally, a man trying to make a pork pie hat work:

While we can’t say he’s pulling the hat off, the rest of him looks so cute it doesn’t matter.

B Cum’s out of the running on this one. It all comes down to Maslow vs. Haynes on the cute boy ensembles front. As much as we hate pork pie hats, we’re giving this one to Colton, mainly because we’d kill someone for that jacket.

  • LadyCelia

    Thank you for correctly identifying the hat as a pork pie!

  • BlairBear

    Maslow wins for me and I am off to google because yummy

    • random_poster

      I’m right behind you in line for that (Go)Ogling.

      • BlairBear

        that is imaginary boyfriend who’s coat i borrow material

      • jspark

        Well what’s the answer? Don’t make me do it! I’m scared about what google ads it may prompt.

        • random_poster

          Go to IMDB and look him up. It’s worth it just to see the haircut he first sported in the show he did on Nickelodeon. The current look is a solid improvement.

    • kimmeister

      I actually thought it was Matt Bomer at first! Anyone who could be mistaken for Matt Bomer is automatically cute.

  • I give it to the unknown. LOVE his jacket. that fleece makes me want to snuggle him. I’ve seen Colton’s jacket before, and someone at work was even wearing that red plaid shirt today.

  • sugarkane105

    I don’t know who he is, but I’m gonna give it to Maslow for the lack of white sneakers alone. Though the limp scarf saddens me.

    • MM4321

      +1. I CANNOT with the white sneakers and jeans look. ;-p

  • ann non

    Seriously are Matt Bomer, Henry Cavill and this Maslow fellow the same person?

    • sugarkane105

      It’s like they come in Small, Medium and Large.

  • Annistella

    I wont defend Benedict, nor padded shoulder, plaid lined leather jacket. Dr Huxtable wore it better *sniffs, looks away*.

  • rumcg66

    Ew, no on pork pie. Maslow is perfection. The coat! The glasses! The shoes!

    (I’m a Cumberbitch to the core, but I will concede his casual style is often lacking.)

  • I see that nod to the Remembrance Day poppy on your lapel, BCum.

    • Not really a nod – that’s a proper one. Those are the ones that most people wear.

  • JerFeist

    Leather jackets? Yes. Leather jackets lined with plaid? You sit in a corner and you think about you’ve done, Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch.

    • kimmeister

      While you’re at it, remove the Blue Blocker old man sunglasses.

      • Shelby

        And the pop-pop jeans…. (we’ll have him undressed in no time).

        • Fuchsiaforever

          He’s obvs totally clueless poor thing. Lol

      • Moni

        Those sunglasses are AWFUL and he wears them all the time. Is it too much to hope that the new fiancée will accidentally “lose” them? Along with his dad jeans? And his flat caps?

        • julnyes

          Oh, she seems to be a pretty busy person, but it would be the charitable thing for her to reform his wardrobe don’t you think?

          • Moni

            It really would be. I like to imagine she’s playing the long game, whereby she removes all the offensive pieces of clothing from his wardrobe bit by bit, so slowly and gradually that he won’t even notice. Not that I did this with my husband when we got together. Um, no. Definitely not…

          • julnyes

            He has come pretty far on his own over the last few years, but it would be nice to see him consistently at the top of his game.

  • harlowish

    I give it to Maslow because I took one look at his picture and thought, “Who is THAT?” Which doesn’t happen very often.

    Cumberbatch is wearing total Dad jeans.

    • Liz-motherfcking-Taylor

      SAME. That is all.

    • VCR1

      Yes they are total dad jeans!! And I think dad shoes too. I’ll give him a pass because he probably wanted to be comfortable on the flight and because he’s still adorable.

      Yes to whoever Maslow is, but I suspect he might be too young for me to have a crush on!

      • Fuchsiaforever


  • frannyprof

    Maslow, FTW. Uncles, unless you have an 8-year old daughter who lives with you, you wouldn’t be expected to know who he is. But I can tell you! Big Time Rush, courtesy of Nickelodeon. You’re welcome.

    • Alexa42

      Plus a steamy season of Dancing With the Stars earlier this year….

      • frannyprof

        That’s right! With the amazing Peeta as his partner…

    • MilaXX

      oops I called him a Disney kid.

      • frannyprof

        Disney, Nick…all the same in terms of churning out pretty, but bland, babystars.

    • Lisa

      I used to watch that show and I did not recognize him. He looks great.

  • Liz-motherfcking-Taylor

    Cute cute looks on the bottom 2. We all know BCum can do better.

  • Nikko Viquiera

    Bcum is just resting on pretty. Put more effort into it!

  • gabbilevy


    (It’s been a long Monday.)


    I must have the Maslow coat…please TLO, do you have a source?

  • Beth Burleson Swartz

    Colton Haynes is giving off a young RDJ vibe.

    • scoobysnacks

      RDJ is still trying to give off a young RDJ vibe, judging from those shoes earlier.

  • Heather

    Cumberbatch wins because I am biased and British so don’t know who the other two are…

  • smh4748

    “Seeds of Yesterday”? That’s a pretty terrible movie title. Sounds like Duke Silver’s follow-up to “Memories of Now.”

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Another Dawn, with the Seeds of Yesterday.

    • Linda LaPaz

      It’s a Lifetime movie, based on a novel by V.C. Andrews.

    • scoobysnacks

      Makes me think of “The Flowers in the Attic.”

      • MilaXX

        I think it’s a continuation of the series.

  • crash1212

    Maslow. Pork pie hats are always a disqualifier.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Colton Haynes should wear glasses all the time.

  • katetastrophe

    Awww Maslow looks like a guy I used to stare at in my statistics class. That’s why he’s probably a successful engineer now and I sling drinks.

  • GeoDiva

    Love the YVR airport. It’s great for celebrity watching, the Bloody Mary’s are spicy and free Wi-Fi!

  • MerBearStare

    I’ll only tolerate a pork pie hat if it’s worn by Dennis Duffy.

    • BKagainwiththesweatpants

      Pork pie hat only for Jake Blues or The French Connection’s Popeye Doyle. And any bebop sax player of the 1950s. That is all.

  • evave2

    IMDB’d Maslow and still didn’t know he is (never heard of any of his movies/shows) and I have to say the pork pie hat IS a killer for me. So Maslow my Maslow, be my Masloiw, cutiepie.

  • drdirection

    Anyone know what flower is for on Cumberbatch? Wasn’t Elizabeth Banks wearing one too?

    • Sly

      It could be the Red poppy for Remembrance Day in Canada. That’s on November 11th.

    • Taurwen

      It’s a rememberance poppy. People in the UK wear them in late October/early November up until Rememberance Day.

  • nannypoo

    The Cumberbatch jeans are not good.

  • MilaXX

    BCum gets an A for effort. It’s not great but it’s much improved over his usual man on the street looks. I had to look up James Maslow. Apparently he’s a former Disney kid. I have to say he grew up nice. Love his jacket. Colton is well fitted out as usual. I’m giving this one to the Disney kid by a hair.

    • Jacob Daniel

      James Maslow was in Big Time Rush which is a boy band/tv show that I totally saw…at the age of 19….oops. He is so adorable.

  • SophieCollier

    Maslow gets my vote. He looks catalog-perfect.

  • JP

    Maslow. Cumberbitch though I am, I can never get behind him in the newsboy cap.

  • quiltrx

    At least in this getup, I declare Maslow the hipster version of Nascar’s Jimmie Johnson.

  • Fuchsiaforever

    I just can’t find B. Cumbercrotch handsome. I don’t get it. There. I said it.

  • sagecreek

    Yeah, I’m normally opposed to judging anyone who’s gotten off a 12 hour flight, but the pork pie hat has to go. NO PORK PIE HATS EVER.

  • LadyVimes

    He shrunk his hat in the wash…

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I have no idea who Maslow or Haynes is, but for the sheer ensemble of it all, I have to go with Maslow. They both look a little hipster-y, but within the vibe, I just like that one better.

    [low voice]I kind of like the stupid hat. For some unfathomable and utterly bizarre reason, I kind of like it.[/low voice]

    • Beardslee

      Me too! I like hats of all kinds. I wish more people wore them.

  • lunchcoma

    Benedict looks dreadful in a way that doesn’t make sense. Colton looks like a dork in a way that I identify with, because who hasn’t struggled with headphones and documents and carrying things at the airport? Whoever this James person is looks yummy. Unidentifiable, but yummy.

  • Candypatch can let himself go now he’s engaged. As long as he fits his wedding suit it’s all fine.

    Maslow wins based on shoe selection. I wanted to do a “Hierarchy of needs” joke but I’ve only had one cup of coffee.

  • jjfg

    See, if Benny spoke, the other two, whoever they are, would be blown out of the water. BUT, based on appearances alone, Maslow, playing the part of your euro fling boyfriend, wins. Porkpie hats? Ouch.

  • decormaven

    Colton needs a better traveling satchel. Is James’ suit bag made of fabric? And looking at Benedict’s luggage on a cart, the wrapped piece of luggage is either a)very fine and prewrapped or b) busted and trampled by the luggage handlers. I give it to Benedict based on the large leather doctor’s bag.

  • Call me Bee

    While ladystars often look like they are at a photo shoot and sport “fashion” when walking through airports, it seems the guys look like….travelers and dress for comfort. Smart men.

  • HeisenbergHattie

    James Maslow wins because he’s wearing the best shoes.

  • Anna

    What is a James Maslow and where can I get one?

  • Sanglots longs

    Um, I’ll try to defend the Cumberbatch jacket, which appears to be a Belstaff motorcycle jacket. He’s known to ride a bike, so maybe this is actually a functional part of his wardrobe? He is also known for not fussing a lot over casual clothing–seems to keep it all pretty low-key. I can respect that, especially as he generally brings his A game to the red carpet. He could have found a better pair of jeans, though. The floppy fit might be comfortable on a long flight (again, I respect such a choice), but a darker wash, or black, would have looked a bit more up-to-date.

  • marlie

    Colton wins this round (except for the hat) b/c the bf was coveting his coat too. I’ve got to give him props for that.

  • KinoEye

    Mr. Maslow is all kinds of adorable. I want his coat. I can’t believe Colton is making that pork pie work as well as he is — kudos for trying something off the beaten path.

    BCum is a saucy little minx who just pissed off legions of fangurls by daring to get engaged. Me, I’m happy for him. And his classy, intelligent, substantial, beautiful lady. How charming his father took out an engagement announcement in the paper. How quaint he asked her mother’s blessing. They make a wonderful couple. I’m not jealous at all. Nope. Not me. Nothing but love and wishes for many happy years together from me.

    *whispers* lucky bitch.

  • lobsterlen

    I wonder what Benedict is listening to?

  • WendyD

    I’ll admit that Maslow is pretty (though I have no idea who he is), but I’ll still take Benedict any day, but Colton is very welcome to come with him.

  • julnyes

    Maslow wins though I have no clue who he is …. but BCum is always adorable in my heart (and engaged to be married!!! How awesome for him)

  • cocohall

    I’m intrigued that Benedict has arrived with only headphones as his carry on gear – is their a handler with his bag out of frame? My husband has a backpack full of noise-canceling headphones, magazines, books, etc that he carts around on flights to keep him occupied. As for his clothes, perhaps the new fiancé has issued a fiat that dictates he tone down his yumminess when she is not present to fight of the Cumber Cookies. Because, on this front, Mr. Cumberbatch and my husband are altogether too similar with the comfy shoes and pop pop jeans. Although Mr. Cocohall only wears his “lid,” as he calls his hat, when at soccer matches. Never on the plane.

    Mr. Maslow’s jacket has altogether too much trim around the pockets and sleeves for me. It all looks fussy, and plaid coats on dudes should not look this fussy. I’m from the Pacific Northwest. This is regulation wear and I’m just saying no. Sue me. Mr. Haynes’ coat is perfection. But the boy really really want to be noticed and get his photo taken with the glasses AND the hat. Especially THAT hat. Mission accomplished. I’m sure your publicist is very very proud.

    • B. Garcia

      Maybe B. Cum makes that chavvy PR person carry his carry-on? Gotta somehow earn the dosh for that dress she was very nearly not wearing when she accompanied him to the Oscars!

  • ninanan10 .

    Maslow looks like a model in an ad. Why do I never see anyone traveling who looks like this?

  • Imasewsure

    I hate hipster hats so I have to give it to Colton too because I’m not rolling my eyes over this one. Coat porn for sure. Sorry B Cum… love you but Dork Dad is and always will define your casual street style

  • LibKat

    Sorry, Colton but you look almost as ridiculous in that hat as you look in your Arsenal getup.

    Is James Maslow Matt Bomer’s younger brother? Cause he is definitely giving off the Bomer too perfect for humanity vibe.

    Mr. C gets a pass for the red poppy on his jacket. And thank you to any BKs who served.

  • Gatto Nero


  • formerlyAnon

    Y’all crack me up. On ensemble, Maslow, hands down.

  • irielle

    Maslow totally wins for me.

  • Colton? Are you mad?! It’s Maslow all the way.

  • Elizabeth Szubert

    Dear Benedict Cumberbatch: Please just let Martin Freeman wear the hats for the both of you. Love, a fangirl.

  • St. Ace

    Benny’s jacket ruins everything, please take it off. And while you’re doing that, go ahead and remove all your clothes.

    Maslow for the win.

  • fooepi

    Maslow wins, whoever he is.
