Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards: Time For Some Hard Truths

Posted on April 13, 2018

Look, they’re adorable and we love them and all that, but a truth needs to be dropped here and no one else seems willing to say it. That’s our cue. That’s ALWAYS been our cue. Why? Because were opinionated bitches, that’s why.

Anyway, here it is. The truth about these two:

Sloppy gays. There. We said it.

Gus is almost always a boring kind of a mess in these situations and that pornstache is not flattering at all. Adam never seems to be well-fitted, relies way too much on the sockless loafer look, and occasionally makes choices that really don’t flatter him all that much. Love a pink tux, but the color doesn’t look good on him. The pants are too big and the jacket is too small, making his shoulders look narrower than his hips and elongating his neck. He needs a broader silhouette up top and much slimmer one on the bottom. Show off the moneymaker, queen.

There. We said THAT too.

We get the impression that Gus is not a fashion guy at all, which would handily explain why his style choices tend to be dull. Adam doesn’t have a problem in that area. He likes fashion, he likes looking good in it, and he likes the attention he can get from it. And while we briefly paused on the excuse of “Gay or not, they’re athletes” to explain their sloppiness, the fact remains that there are plenty of very stylish male athletes out there.

You boys are walking red carpets and representing. Get your fashion shit together.

We said what we said.
