What Do You Think of Emile Hirsch's Quirky New Look?

Emile Hirsch is a lot of things — a certifiable action star (hello, Speed Racer!), a Screen Actors Guild award nominee — but one he isn’t yet: a style star. Sure, that may not be a legitimate expectation for the 23-year-old actor who roughed it for his role in Into the Wild. But Hirsch appears to be trying to change all of that. Witness the glam-Western inspired getup he wore to Valentino’s spring menswear show recently — he is also the face of the line for the Spring 09 collection. You have to appreciate that he made an effort past his typical uniform of jeans and a T-shirt, but we can’t help but think that Hirsch missed the mark by trying to go too high fashion all at once. And here’s what really stings: He has the raw materials — never mind the acting chops — to be the full package: a brilliant actor and a head-turner. Tell us: What do you think of Emile’s look? Is it hot? Or does he need a makeover?

I think he look really cute I mean I would date him in this oufit :) very sufisticated (sp?) and dapper

phija on

he needs to cut his hair and shave he looks to old

Jonathan on

He looks like a British dandy who got lost on his way to a Pearl Jam concert circa 1993. His heart is in the right place, though I have a feeling that his stylist is running on very little sleep.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. He has guts, isn’t another interchangeable part. I like it.

Abbie :) here in Seattle on

Emile ventured into braver fashion territory, here, didn’t he? He’s not only a movie star, he’s also a model, now so he has to appear more a la mode, whatever the consequences.
I don’t like Emile roughly shaven.
I like his hair more “groomed” and shorter, too.
I DO LIKE his glasses.
I WISH celebrities would wear glasses more often, in public. I wish the stigma of “people don’t make passes at — who wear glasses”, would GOOO away! Celebrities are too damn vain!

Colonel Sanders comes to mind when I see this ensemble. And I doubt that’s the look he was going for.

Ariel on

He’s sooo adorable and talented (my fave actor), so to me he looks fab. I agree with Abbie on the glasses.

Kim v on

He’s a cutie for sure, but he does need a makeover! This style does not suit him. Not the least of it is that his facial growth is really uneven. Blech.

susan on

that is real style, something menswear is truly lacking. i think it’s great and would like to see more stylish outfits for men like this one.
