So, is Jared Leto the worst-dressed man in the world? To answer the question: we don’t know. But GQ certainly seems to think so. The men’s magazine gave the actor the dubious honor this year, saying he looked “extravagantly terrible” all throughout 2011.

“It’s not that Jared Leto, the actor and 30 Seconds to Mars frontman, doesn’t try,” the magazine laments. “He tries too damn hard.” Citing Leto’s love of see-through mesh shirts, women’s skirts and mullets, GQ says the star is “a man who can afford an Alexander McQueen suit … but opts for Ugg slippers and a couture snuggy.”

The snark throughout the story is almost as harsh as the style, though at times, the one-liners are pretty funny. Case in point? “Leto’s always the most wealthy-looking homeless person in the room.” Burn!

there’s no such thing as being a bad dresser,fashion is an expression of ourselves and what mood we’re in,just because you wouldn’t wear it doesn’t make wrong.

Whatever, he’s a rock star/actor. The clothes aren’t that out there for a rock star and he is butch enough to even pull of a skirts. That’s actually pretty bad#ss.

I think he dresses this way as a form of distraction. He’s attractive, but he wants people to like him for his music not his good looks.

He is probably one of the worst dressed man, that’s for sure. His problem is that he tries too much; he wants to be different because he needs the attention. I definitely do not find him attractive. He seems too feminine!

I don’t care if he is or he’s not, he’s sexy! Can’t believe he’s so close to 40 yrs old!! I still remember him as Jordan on My So Called Life.

Jared Leto is 40 and looks 25. Everybody would want that. He dresses in a strange manner but somehow it works for him. It would not work for anybody else.

Jared Leto is on my top 5 celebrity crushes. So I love him and he’s fine and all, but I still think he dresses horribly. The first two pictures I can deal with, but that last one is just…ew.

How ironic is it that GQ voted him worst dressed, yet GQ Germany awarded him the Man of the Year Style Award.. Just goes to show how close-minded us Americans are. He takes risks, and looks damn good doing it. Fashion is an expression of oneself, so how can we say that his thoughts/feelings/emotions are wrong? Jared should be applauded for his individuality, and somehow managing to look THAT good at 40.

Yeah, he kinda is! But he is still super hot!
