Charlie Cox attends the “Daredevil” Season 2 premiere in New York City.
Things have been very boy-light around these parts lately, especially when it comes to red carpet bitchery. Let’s all come together and tell a cute guy what he got wrong.
Okay, one: You’re an actor, promoting a project by standing in front of a wall of photographers. Have a makeup artist go over your face. No joke. Especially if you’re pale, because all those flashes are going to turn you sickly. No one’s asking you to put on mascara or lip gloss. But a little bronze powder applied lightly would have made a huge difference to these shots. You wear makeup every day when you’re on set, so just think of the red carpet as another set, Charlie.
Two: If you’re going to wear a suit and tie, man up and wear a good pair of dress shoes with it. A good rule of thumb: if they’d look great with a pair of jeans, then they probably don’t look great with a suit.
Three: The outfit’s not bad, but a tie with more contrast would’ve been nice.
Four: Clean up the neck. Neck stubble will never not look awful to us when it’s in the vicinity of a tie.
Five: If you’re going to get high in the limo beforehand, pack Visine.
