This photo was submitted by an anon, who drew attention to Olivia’s outfit. However, this is not whatareyouwearingolivia, she looks perfectly fine, and it’s a Saturday. And this just so happens to be one of my favourite photos of Benedict. (It’s mostly down to whatever in hell his hair appears to be doing).
The other reasons I like this? Leather jacket. Jeans (even though he has paint on them. I doubt this is a fashion statement; I think he wore them whilst painting and then “they seemed clean”). Lovely warm soft brown jumper. Classic white shirt underneath.
Also, he’s carrying Olivia’s coat, what a wonderful gentleman.
(The eagle eyed amongst you might spot Bonus Peter Capaldi in the background, too - this is an event for In The Loop).
He really, really suits autumnal colours. I love the (velvet? moleskin?) dark brown trousers, and the jumper/shirt combination, especially with the rolled up sleeves. The messy hair and crinkled up grin face just add to the charm.
I originally saved this picture intending to comment on the fact that he’s wearing a leather jacket with a shirt and tie at a style awards ceremony. THEN I REALISED, THOSE ARE FUCKING DRAWSTRING TROUSERS.
Sweet, lovely, silly Benedict. You just have no clue. And it’s adorable.
I’ve received many messages asking my opinion on Benedict’s board shorts, and his seeming reluctance to buy anything new. I’m hesitant to use the recent paparazzi shots, so I’ve used a picture from his travel article a few years ago. It has the added bonus of being a nerdy posed shot, so.
He must love them, to have kept hold of them for so long - and I suppose we should be glad of the injection of colour in his wardrobe - they could so easily be a boring solid charcoal grey. So, I’m thankful for that. I’m sure we all have items in our wardrobes that we could afford to (and probably should) replace, just because he’s an extremely attractive and talented actor doesn’t make it any less likely that Benedict does the same :)
We can’t see his feet in the paparazzi shots, I just hope to God that he’s not wearing bloody Crocs. Anything but Crocs, Ben, please.
I’m just off to bed now folks (I’ve got to go to the gym in 5.5 hours, fuck me). But I just wanted to say again, thank you all for following - all 1370 of you! Maybe I should do something special if I hit 2000 - any ideas, you know where my ask box is!
Here’s a picture of Martin Freeman doing some beautiful colouring in. Wearing a hat and a cravat. Ignoring some yogurt. Yes.
