Is Jared Leto the World's Worst-Dressed Man?

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!

Who cares he’s Jared Leto and he’s fine.

wtf on

How is he worst dressed! He’s amazingly attractive. I call BS! (:

anna on

definitely not. he’s just different, it’s not our job to brand or classify someone just because he is like that. let’s just move on and stay positive. leave the negative thoughts behind.

Rave on

I do just love that when a man wears something extremely ‘feminine’ like a skirt, a magazine like GQ decides it’s not okay. Just saying. I think he looks really cool in a very eclectic way. But that’s just me. There’s too many men in suits.

tink on

I think when you’re that hot you can do quirky. It is by no means mainstream or “fashionable” but I think he could make anything semi-work, definitely not worst dressed in my book.

angela on

ehhh… he kinda is… but he was fantastically gorgeous in the mid nineties in “my so-called life” so this is just making up for his years of beauty…. :)

ladyjane on

I do not get how someone sooooo hot can dress so bad. Come on… Your Jordan Catalano so dreamy!

P. Evelsizer on

Just the male version of Lady GaGa-outrageous garners attention

JillZ on

He can wear a roll of paper towels wrapped around him kept together with a band aid, and he’d still be absolutely gorgeous!

Jester on

He’s hot and talented and I happen to like that he is not main stream and dresses how he pleases. He is certainly not the worst dressed man.

ST on

I think he’s an attention seeker so he chooses the most absurd outfits to get it.

zusje on

He is one of the worst dressers,no doubt about that.He is gorgeous and very talented,but he doesn’t have taste or he should fire his stylist.It’s exactly as someone said about Lady Gaga,they can wear the most beautiful clothes in the world and they choose to wear clothes that clash in patterns and fabric and look like something even a homeless man wouldn’t be caught dead in.Nothing creative,or non mainstream about it,if it doesn’t look good when looking in a mirror I don’t care how “different” or “out there” it is,you’re still looking like a damn fool in bad clothes!

Della on

Just because you can afford a McQueen suit doesn’t mean that’s what you should wear. How about wearing what *you* like instead of what society dictates? There’s nothing wrong with individuality. Maybe GQ should learn that instead of being sheep.

Denise on

Why can’t we let people be INDIVIDUALS instead of trying to put everyone in a box….this is how you should look and dress. It takes a lot of confidence to be “different” and not feel like you have to fit into the mainstream mold. More power to you, Jared!!

Roll it on

He needs to come out of the closet.

me on

It’s all about self expression, who cares, he isn’t doing any harm and he is still HOT.

jaime on

who cares how he dresses! that man is amazingly attractive….doesn’t matter if he’s wearing a skirt or a suit!

I feel like I need to qualify my answer with this– I like Jared Leto. I love 30 Seconds to Mars.

But, yeah, I think he deserves the title. :/ There’s a difference between fashionably unique and fashionably tragic and Jared needs to learn it. (If he just threw things together, I’d be more willing to not give him grief– but he puts thought into these outfits, which is kinda scary.)

Paul on

His eyes are too close together… thats all I know.

Rose on

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.

Van on

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.

thetruth on

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.

ana on

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!

AW on

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.

anna on

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.

Jennifer on

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.

christine on

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.

Shaye on

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

faye on

Since when do rockstars have to be well-dreesed???? ! we love you jared for your weirdness and individuality !!

Andrea on

Just because you have your own style makes you the worst dressed person? How society like to paste a label on what should and shouldnt be. He should be applauded for not falling to those standards. And being who HE wants to be. Enough said. He is an amazing person and who cares what he wears. Better yet, less is more with him….the less clothes the better for us all :)

Bonnie Adelle on

Like another person posted: WHO CARES WHAT HE WEARS, HE’S JARED LETO (As in gorgeous, outrageous, and so fun & talented)

Misty G. on

Who cares what he wears because he is and always will be HOT and SEXY!!!!!!!!

AMV on

The short answer: Yes. Definitely the worst dressed man.

In fact, the only think worse than this guy’s wardrobe is his ego.
