Ansel Elgort attends Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood at NeueHouse Hollywood in Los Angeles, California.
We hope Ansel truly is the Power of Young Hollywood, because it means we’re going to get years of this:
And this shit is catnip to bitchy bloggers such as we.
But in truth, despite our initial reaction:
We don’t actually hate this as much as we probably should. Sure, the proportions are almost clown-like and the jacket has absolutely nothing to do with the other pieces, but 99% of male stars hit the red carpet wearing completely shitty outfits or dressed like they’re interviewing for an internship at an accounting firm. At least he picked interesting pieces. We wouldn’t have put them together in this way, but he’s young and this is by no means generic. It’s not a winning look, as far as we’re concerned, but we can appreciate it for at least being a little different. Menswear is so dull and conformist most of the time.
