Balthazar Getty makes a sartorial cry for help: fabulous or tragic?


In Balthazar Getty’s defense, it’s not like he wore this to a red carpet or something. In the lack of Balthy’s defense, however, if this is how he dresses “casually” then we might have some problems. Even a traditionally stylish man would have problems making this outfit work. If Michael Fassbender showed up in this outfit… well, I would still hit it, and I would try to take off the pink pants with my teeth, but I would still be grossed out. I’m not going to bash the dude for not being afraid of color – but a nipple-hugging yellow shirt with PINK pants and a green shoes? For real?

And before you’re all “Oh, those are women’s pants”… DON’T. They’re men’s pants!! Look at the way they fit him!

CB and I were wondering if perhaps this is all an evil plot by Balthazar’s wife Rosetta. She’s actively trying to make Balthy look as unattractive as possible in the hopes that Sienna Miller’s vadge of doom will simply stay in England and never bother Balthy again. You’re rolling your eyes at me, I can tell. Don’t be so sure I’m wrong! Remember Rosetta Getty’s Harper’s Bazaar interview and how crazy and smug she was about Balthy coming back to her after a year of Sienna’s vadge of doom? Go here for a refresher. Rosetta is totally not over the whole Sienna debacle. And my guess is that Balthy’s not over it either. I’m sure these pink pants are some kind of “I LURVE YOU” signal to Sienna. Too bad she’s already moved on to Tom Sturridge (and SPARKLES!).

    Maybe he’s color bilnd?

  2. LunaT says:

    Oh, NO! He’s wearing bright colors. And one of them is PINK! That’s just horrible. Horrible.

    He seems to be a bit of an ass, but kudos for wearing something outside what is deemed acceptable for guys to wear. After all, it’s just clothing.

  3. smd says:

    The shirt doesn’t fit him, but I think the pants are pretty awesome.

  4. Kittypants says:

    For some reason I have a completely baffling crush on this guy. I mean, he’s a twat for starters, he boned Sienna Miller whom I absolutely loathe and now he’s taken to the streets in pink trousers. I’m so annoyed with myself.

  5. Quest says:

    Oi, yo, yoi…ouch!

  6. brin says:

    Ugh…she is either dressing him (woman scorned) or he is pining for Sienna in his best boho chic.

  7. 30MinutesWithMike Rowe says:

    While the outfit is indeed dreadful, I think a more pressing problem is the red string around his left wrist. That signifies he’s a follower of The Kabbalah Center, the same group that is currently under an IRS investigation for tax evasion. Recent news articles also state the Centre has misappropriated millions of dollars from Madonna’s Raising Malawi charity. If he’s sporting that $26 red string, I’m sure he’s also giving boatloads of money to the Kabbalah Centre and the Berg Family.

  8. Rita says:

    He was wearing his sunglasses when he washed his red sweater with his white pants. (Did that with my hubby’s underwear once. They’re his work underwear now but once he forgot and wore them to the gym. Men can be so cruel in a locker room situation)

    There’s no excuse for the shoes.

  9. esblondie says:

    Who gives a crap about his clothes; what I want to know is where’s his wedding ring? You’d think after that whole blowup with Sienna and then the humiliating crawl-back to his wife that he’d be rocking that wedding ring even if he were walking down the street buck naked.

  10. Happymom says:

    Pink pants can be sort of preppy-cute. But with this unfortunate shirt it’s as though these were the last 2 clean items in his closet. Not cute.

  11. geekychic says:

    my policy is that i’d never, ever get on the side of the one who cheated. so, i’m not a fan of him, although he is handsome. BUT, i don’t see anything wrong with this. then again, i don’t see anything wrong with a man in bright colors-how is this dofferent from beckham (i’m convinced he gets more cosmetical help in a week than i get in a year, honestly).
    i mean,the momoa guy from HGF? i don’t see an appeal.

  12. anonymoose says:

    Well, at least the clothing fits.

  13. Eve says:

    I’m not interested in anything related to Getty and his affairs, I just wanted to comment on how consistent Kaiser is about the men she’s attracted to. I mean that her horniness doesn’t have double standards (which is a good thing).

  14. Luci says:

    I find it great that a straight guy has the balls to wear such a “gay” outfit

  15. NC native says:

    Wow…good call esblondie. Not only is he not wearing the ring, but it looks like he was trying to make sure the camera got a good shot of that hand to show he wasn’t wearing it. Maybe thats the reason for the crazy outfit…wear that out, get attention, get picture taken, and make sure your hand is positioned just so on the cup so everyone can see that it is bare.

  16. Deven says:

    Doesn’t anybody in Hollywood, male or female, ever have their pants tailored to the proper length? They always look like they never heard of tailoring!

  17. Lushus L. says:

    People.of. Walmart.

  18. Kaiser says:

    Good catch esblonde! I didn’t even notice that. Yes, where is his wedding ring?

  19. Stella says:

    Some guys don’t wear wedding rings, just ask Prince William.

    The outfit is being worn to humiliate and piss off his wife who has his balls strung up in a sack dangling over the marriage bed – where they belong. Ha!

  20. GQ says:

    no matter what he wears – he’s a big douche

  21. Roma says:

    I remember seeing pics of him in April and he didn’t have a ring. I only remember because my mother pointed it out.

    Has he ever worn one?

  22. Esmom says:

    Not the outfit specifically but he generally reminds me of Charlie Sheen.

  23. MariPily says:

    I think most men will wear anything that is clean even if it doesn’t match, lol. I think that’s why all these celebrity guys need stylists for the red carpet…left to their own devices, they’ll show up looking like they got dressed in the dark!

  24. e says:

    I like the pants.

  25. says:

    I hate myself for finding him excruciatingly hot.

  26. Elizabeth says:

    Clearly he is still trying to make amends to his family by having his children dress him.

  27. should be working says:

    He’s colorblocking; just keeping up with trends. And that burnout shirt is SEXY.

  28. thinkaboutit says:

    Ditto, I need to loathe this douche-bag but his sex appeal is undeniable and completely inexplicable even to myself!!

  29. Rachael says:

    I’d hit it like a house on fire. He’s so hot to me and I’m a sucker for dudes in pink/ kinda faggy dudes who dress weird. Seriously. Sign me up. but in your defense, I am weird and like quirky dudes that no one likes.

  30. Rachael says:

    PS- color blocking is IN ala Lanvin.

  31. Chris says:

    They should make a movie about his family. It’d be as interesting as any movie he’s been in. However, I loved him in The Lost Highway.

  32. Sugar says:

    This looks like something my husband would wear… only my husband would wear clothes that were tailored properly!

  33. Laughternrain says:

    I really don’t get why men can’t wear pink, but can wear every other colour in the rainbow. Seriously, how is pink any more ‘feminine’ than blue or red is ‘masculine’. I sometimes wear grey. Does that make me butch? Seriously, they are just COLOURS! They don’t MEAN anything! Its absolutely crazy that men can’t wear pink. Its 2011, for goodness sake. What difference does pink make? Its JUST a COLOUR!

  34. jacq says:

    Which way do they button? Don’t men’s and women’s fold over in opposite directions?

  35. Mizz Tickles says:

    Damn he is hot on brothers and sisters and the outfit is awesome. As an actor he is a bit like Jennifer Aniston, plays Tommy Walker in his movies.

  36. coconut says:

    i think he and his clothes look great! i wish north american and other men weren’t so stodgy with color. my husband’s closet is filled with mostly dark blues, grays, blacks, browns–yawn–fortunately with a couple of orange shirts now. you see dutch men and they have orange *pants*–yeh! with red shoes. even better. what’s wrong with bright color?

    i was in southern france recently and the U.S. men–young and old–stuck out like a sore thumb with their pleated pants and dress shirts or polo shirts–ugh!!! all the handsome youngish french men were wearing slim tops and pants (not ridiculously skinny, just pleasantly slim) and they were hot.
