Tom Hiddleston showed off his ginger curls at the NYFW Ralph Lauren event

Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary Event - Red Carpet

There are SO many photos from the start of New York Fashion Week and all of the film festivals going around, but I didn’t want this event to get lost in the shuffle. Apparently, Tom Hiddleston flew into New York just to attend the big Ralph Lauren 50th anniversary event. This was maybe one of the biggest A-list events I’ve ever seen for NYFW, which just shows you how much respect Ralph Lauren garners. I don’t have much to say here other than… Hiddles looks GOOD these days. The break from the spotlight has been good for him, you can see it. He doesn’t look so… thirsty, or sad, or tired. He’s growing out his hair and his beard. HOT.

More photos from the Ralph Lauren event…Jessica Chastain and her husband Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo. I don’t know how I feel about a redhead in yellow. Don’t hate me but… Jessica has better color options.

Kanye West was there. *kanye shrug*

LOL, Blake Lively showed up in a tuxedo and a cane. She looks like Mr. Peanut rather than Marlene Dietrich.

Anne Hathaway also did menswear-inspired but I love her look so much more! This suit is killer.

Priyanka Chopra and her LOVAH Nick Jonas. I like her dress but Nick looks like a toddler.

No joke, Allison Williams had my favorite gown of the event.

    Ever since he dated Swift, his attractiveness level dropped and so did the public perception (or was I imagining it lol) but yeah he looks great and content good for him

    • Char says:

      I really liked Tom pre-Taylor, even watching him as Loki later was painful. That said, he does look good and his beard kills some theories he would be shooting Loki’s return from death that surfaced two weeks ago.

      • Tanesha86 says:

        Those theories don’t make sense anyway, IW2 was filmed concurrently with the first half…

      • Meganbot2000 says:

        They’ve confirmed that IW2 reshoots start later this month, though Mark Ruffalo actually said this in a recent interview:

        “Well we’re doing reshoots starting in September. And then we’ll go back into the international tour, we’ll go on tour… Then you guys will get [‘Avengers 4’]. Which we don’t even know what it’s gonna be yet. We’re not just doing reshoots, we’re going to finish the movie, which we really didn’t get to finish totally when we left it last year… It’s pretty amazing. And we’ll shoot some stuff and a few days later come back and reshoot it cause we wanna take it in another direction. It’s a very living organism, even as we approach it being a locked picture, we’re still working on it.“

    • Got says:

      That’s what I was thinking he looks so sad and looks older.

      • FF says:

        He does look a bit sad in the last few photos I saw here (lol, and in need of a hug, one of you fangirls fix it). Normally he looks at least chill even when not smiling (when smiling seemed like an irrepressible thing for him anyway). You could tell the Loki thing was hard for him to promote and not spoil but he did it gamely eventhough you could tell that he’d miss it but is this a method “sad face”, or a I have no work lined up and am stressing “sad face”?

        (Or… did I just miss all the pics of him looking happy af?)

        I’m surprised his PR people haven’t rustled him up a girlfriend even just so the last relationship people remember him for isn’t TSwift. Tbh, that’s not a good last look to seem not to have moved on from, even if he doesn’t give a crap what people think.

      • Deering says:

        FF—heck, maybe he needed a major PR break. And if my crew had hooked me up with Swift, I’d nix any more publicity girlfriend stunts.

    • Mumbles says:

      Yes the “I Heart TS” t-shirt is burned into my memory. U He might have recovered from that but then there was that tone-deaf acceptance speech at the Emmys for The Night Manager (“Aid workers in Africa thanked me for this show”). Yuck.

      • jammypants says:

        Well he at least apologized for said tone deafness.

      • MI6 says:

        He was being sincere as he always is and trying to highlight humanitarian workers. NBD. The press jumped on it because they could.
        The apology was unnecessary IMO.

      • jammypants says:

        @M16, I feel they press was ready to pounce post-Swift and that was a ripe opportunity. I’ve seen many awards speeches and this wasn’t the worst, not by miles. Plus, those who understood his intention didn’t think it was bad at all. Viola Davis got attacked for her speech too, but instead of by the press, by the public.

      • Case says:

        I think that Emmys speech was blown way out of proportion. He perhaps didn’t express it properly (and admitted as much when he was called out on it), but all he was trying to say was that he was glad something he did contributed to the happiness of people doing very difficult work. I get that. I’m a writer and would also be thrilled if I knew something I wrote impacted people I admire for their hard work. He was trying to highlight humanitarian work and the way art can touch people. It was a nice concept.

      • MI6 says:

        Hey Jammy!
        Agree. That speech never would’ve been called out otherwise.
        This reboot is well thought-out and sorely needed. I credit Luke. My theory is he tried to warn Hiddles off, was rejected and there was a fallout and subsequent reunion once it was over and he was proven right. TH’s image is under reconstruction with Luke at the helm.
        Nobody @ me. I stand firm.
        And Case, I couldn’t agree more.

    • theHord says:

      Oh the horror.

    • virginfangirl says:

      M16: It is true that Luke was scarce but then returned. There had to have been a reason for that.

      • MI6 says:

        Yup.
        Lots of people want to blame Luke for what they call a PR stunt, but I think Hiddles followed his heart down the snake hole. And got bit. Lesson learned. He’s recovering nicely.

      • Justme says:

        I agree that Tom followed his heart and got bit. I’ve never thought that it was a PR exercise dreamed up by Luke. A lot of fans just can’t imagine that Hiddles was attracted to Taylor, but yeah, I think he was. It was a learning experience for him no doubt. He’s older and (we hope!) wiser now.

      • virginfangirl says:

        Agree. Never thought it was PR either. Maybe he welcomed the pap pics & seen that as a sort of perk (which of course backfired), or maybe she was responsible for all of that, but I don’t think the rs started for any other reason than he was smitten with her. He wouldn’t be the first man to fall for her.

  2. Lightpurple says:

    Damn, my man LEGS looks good. There are some great pictures of him laughing with Jessica and Anne. Hillary Clinton was there too, looking fabulous.

    The veranda is open although it is a tad chilly. Pumpkin pancakes and apple cider doughnuts.

  3. Lindy79 says:

    HIDDLES!! The official portrait from the night looks amazing too, that blue is just gorgeous.

    Loved Anne Hathaway’s look. I also liked Rose Byrne’s look, and she seemed to be having a ball sitting beside Tom. I have a major girl crush on her, she seems cool and fun.

  4. Jegede says:

    Damn! This was a truly star studded event. Hilary Clinton, Bob DeNiro, Spielberg, Oprah. Practically every single Americana designer Wang, Hererra, Klein, Hilfiger, Kors.

    I never see the hot in Hiddleston, but he looked very OK here.

    He was also spotted in deep conversation with Blake Lively – so I guess no lingering bad beef with Taylor Swift?

    Speaking of Lively, she and Paul Feig wore identical suits, so it seems they were there as a double act complete with bowler and cane. But it didn’t come off as it shoulda.

    Rose HW pulled the tailored suit look of the night best IMO.

  5. Beth says:

    Nobody else can wear a suit as perfectly as Tom does. I’d love to run my fingers through his beautiful ginger curls and facial hair. He’s so friggin delicious!

  6. Maum says:

    I think his hair/beard is too long. Only guy who rocks that style is Dev Patel.

    And I know Blake Lively doesn’t have a stylist but maybe a friend could suggest she should stop with the suits? At this point it’s like she’s trying to make it her signature ‘thing’ and it’s not working.
    If you’re *trying* to be idiosyncratic, you’ve already failed.

    Agree Anne looks way better but needed a stronger lip- in fact they all did with such muted colours. Priyanka did it right.

    • T.Fanty says:

      +1 to the Lively comment. Plus, I’m of the opinion that you can’t be a major fashionista if the only thing you can do with your hair is blonde waves. Women with real style take hair and make up risks, too. This is just half-hearted.

    • EllieMichelle says:

      I have a theory about the suits. I read the book A Simple Favor (don’t waste your time if you haven’t- it’s terrible) and the character Blake will play works for a fictional designer named Dennis Nylon. His big claim to fame is a power suit for women. That’s why I think she’s been wearing them. I’m actually curious to see the movie since the book was very bad, but cool it with the suits already girl!

      • M.A.F. says:

        Piggybacking on this- I believe Blake said as much as to why she is wearing the suits- to promote the movie.

  7. somelikeitpink says:

    I’m genuinely so surprised that people seem to say he looked good there.
    First I’m not a fan of beard hiddles. If there has to be something… then fine I’ll go with stubble hiddles.

    But mainly.. he looks so tired and thin? He looks like someone should give him a blanket and a hot cacoa or tea.

    • Dara says:

      When people call him thin, I always wonder who they are comparing him to. He’s not Hemsworth or Evans.

      • jammypants says:

        He doesn’t exactly look twiggy next to either either. He’s taller than Evans and only an inch shorter than Hemsworth. Imo, his shoulders are wide too. It’s just his arms and pecs aren’t absurdly huge. They’re sculpted and lean.

      • Cranberry says:

        Yeah. Sometimes people can look skinnier from the tailored fit of the suit. I think think this fits him nicely. Not too tight, but still might make him seem thinner than usual. Also his long, wavy hair makes his head look bigger making the rest of him look thin. Haha

    • Cranberry says:

      I agree. There’s been time I’ve liked his hair worn long-ish and wavy, but it’s harder for him to manage especially for live event photos. I prefer him with short hair and smooth face or some stubble.

  8. MI6 says:

    He looks better than ever. He’s wearing life – and that suit- extremely well.

  9. virginfangirl says:

    He does look good! I’m glad he’s finding what works for him PR wise. Although perhaps I’m in the minority. I learned of him, & I grew to love him, during THAT summer, & gosh I enjoyed “thirsty” Tom – the dancing, velociraptor, impressions – I loved it all. And when I saw the Iluvts pics, I just thought that was Tom. Tom did silly, goofy shit. But I suppose it’s all due to when I became a fan. But back to the present, I love, love, love the hair & it seems the women are swooning over him once again.

  10. Newmoon says:

    It’s a shame he got mixed up with Swift’s PR shenanigans. It really tarnished him. (In my eyes, at least.) Though, he does still have the raw materials to be . . .so very old world charming. Hopefully, with time, his image will recover. Worked for Gyllenhaal.

    I like the beard.

    Markle’s friend & that Jonas brother are such an odd couple. Shame about the engagement photo. Transparent, shameless REACH.

    Anne looks fabulous. Maybe she is settling into herself with age? Me hopes.

    • Jegede says:

      “Markle’s friend & that Jonas brother are such an odd couple. Shame about the engagement photo. Transparent, shameless REACH.”

      LOL.

      It was damn uber cheesy how they so cosplayed Harry and Megs in this shot.

      • indian says:

        Yeah, cause no other couples sit like that..Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are mch more accomplished than Meghan Markle or Harry’s Hereditary, privilege based on the death of millions.

  11. coryy says:

    Yikes, people think THAT looks…good? Oh my.

  12. TurkeyLurkey says:

    Anne Hathaway looks amazing.

    Kanye, stop trying to make Velcro slippers with socks a thing, okay?

  13. Nikki says:

    Tom does look really good!!! Again, I think I asked this on another topic of him, but does anyone know what he’s upto now a days? I know he’s taking a bit of a break, but is he taking college courses or something in London? ( I think I read that somewhere)

    • Lightpurple says:

      He told Jenelle Riley he had been doing stuff at RADA. His South Sudan documentary should be released soon and he was in the short “Leading Lady Parts”

      • Meganbot2000 says:

        He has NOT gone back to college.

        The “doing stuff at RADA” he mentioned in the Jenelle Riley podcast referred to his RADA stage production of Hamlet, which was a full a year ago.

        An infamous fan/anti-fan decided to make up an utterly bizarre lie that he’s currently an acting student at RADA, ran to a million blogs and forums to try to spread it, and even lied that he’d mentioned it in the Jenelle podcast (like others aren’t capable of listening to the podcast themselves and checking that it’s a load of hogwash?) The only thing he says about RADA in the podcast is that he and the rest of the cast did movement and voice sessions as part of Hamlet rehearsals, which is standard for any Shakespeare stage production. He’s been seen at RADA a couple of times (most likely supporting the school or supporting current students) but he is certainly not studying, there or anywhere else.

        It’s been confirmed that the South Sudan documentary will not be released this year.

      • Lightpurple says:

        I didn’t say he had. Thanks for the news on the documentary.

    • virginfangirl says:

      I do know what he’s up to. Not much but some little projects, where he seems to be easing himself back in. He recently gave out a GQ award. He recently was in “short” Leading Lady Parts, a comedy highlighting the challenges women face in the workplace. He had a very small part in it. And soon he’ll be reading from either Dickens or Tolstoy in Intelligence Squared, which is a debate about these novelist & whose vision is more relevant today. I don’t think he’ll debate, but just read passages. Intelligence squared stages debates & it’s recorded. He also has an Unicef documentary but who knows when that’s coming out, as it was supposed to come this year but has been delayed. So not much, but the occasional small thing. And did you know he did Hamlet last year? It was a really small production to raise money for RADA, with tickets very difficult to get but it got great reviews.

      • Meganbot2000 says:

        His Hamlet was wonderful. I wish it’d had a longer run or run at a larger venue.

        He’s also credited as appearing as himself in an upcoming short fashion documentary, but that’s most likely archival footage or at best maybe a very brief interview.

      • Lightpurple says:

        The Intelligence Squared event looks really interesting.

    • jammypants says:

      He’s doing a London Tolstoy vs Dickens debate in October. Also in October is a Chicago comic con with Brolin. So he’s been working but under the radar. It comes off weirdly intentional though.

      Like earlier this year he promoted Early Man then Infinity War. He did a tiny part in Leading Lady Parts. He made little appearances promoting his friends at awards shows. He did a comic con west coast.

      • Heather says:

        None of that was acting work though (apart from the 20-second role appearing as himself in Leading Lady Parts, done unpaid as a favour to a friend).

        He has not a single professional acting gig in a full year. There’s no way that’s not intentional.

      • jammypants says:

        The debate actually is, but yea the rest are promo at best. I dunno. I get the vibe he just wants a break. He’s constantly sighted in London walking his dog and buying household things by fans on twitter.

      • Justme says:

        - And hanging around Hampshire – he’s been seen in that county many times during the summer. He may have rented or bought a house there (hence the purchase of household objects) or maybe he knows someone down there? This last week, with the Unrelated Q&A, the British GQ and Ralph Lauren event plus the Dickens vs. Tolstoy event announcement, sort of seem to portend coming back onto the scene with an acting project. Also he’s lately had his picture taken without his glasses. Not sure if that means anything, but it is different from recent behavior. (He also was seen dining with a woman in Bloomsbury, but again that could be anyone.)

    • Heather says:

      Ugh, thank you. Can this stupid “he’s gone back to studying at Rada, he said so on the podcast!” rumour please die? At least listen to the bloody podcast first.

  14. Nanea says:

    Is Hiddles working on being reborn as a fashion icon, rather than as versatile actor with a predilection for creating havoc?

    I like this suit and the one he wore for the GQ event, but I’m wondering why he looks so tired and worn out in the agency pics, when he comes across as much more animated, even cheerful, in the Insta videos that are shared by people at these events. I remember a time when Hiddles seemed to be able to switch on his broad smile without even a moment’s notice.

    • MI6 says:

      …”creating havoc”? Do explain.

    • Beth says:

      Maybe he looks tired because he really is tired. Nobody’s perky, cheerful and bright all the time, especially when they’re worn out and sleepy

      • Dara says:

        He didn’t look tired to me, but he did have two big events in three days, on two different continents. He presented at the GQ Awards in London on Wednesday (which looked like a party where much fun was had), got on a plane to New York on Thursday, and showed up in Central Park on Friday. Quite a lot of the same people were at both events though, so probably not unusual in fashion circles.

    • virginfangirl says:

      Many have similar opinions as you about the difference of the staged pics to the pics with friends at these events. Just guessing, but maybe he feels disenfranchised by the press & has problems mustering up any real happiness when their around taking his pic. Some will say he deserved the bad press & he did it to himself. Of course only Tom knows what truly went down, and he certainly has his own take on that whole mess.

      • Dara says:

        My guess? His reticence is two-fold. Yes, he’s not feeling all that generous towards the press, with good reason, and gives them the absolute minimum required. Secondly, if he did crack a smile and look happy while he posed for photos, I’m sure there would be many who would resurrect the “he’s just a big giant fame-whore who loves the attention” narrative.

      • Cranberry says:

        @Dara
        Agreed. Way before the ts debacle, he’d be given crap calling him thirsty or fame whore just for having fun and being happy. Not saying that he was above any criticism, but especially on the gossip sites like this one, he was treated ptretty f*cking harsh just for being a pretty likable, friendly guy trying to make it into Hollywood.

      • virginfangirl says:

        I agree with you Cranberry. As someone who never truly was a fan of anyone until Tom, which started for me 2+ years ago, I was personally shocked by it.

  15. SJhere says:

    Hiddles looks tired in these pics. He used to be smiley in most pr pics.
    Looks good with longer hair and the beard is a yes. He has a lovely smile, his whole face lights up.
    I enjoyed him in his goofy adorable phase. He seemed to be enjoying his life.

    I do think he really got burned with the Taylor Swift stuff.

  16. Case says:

    I’m glad Tom is slowly but surely stepping back into the spotlight again. I’ve missed him, and this look is so great on him. Better than pretty, clean-shaven Tom, I think.

    I’m seeing a lot of comments that people can’t be attracted to him anymore because of his past missteps. I’ve said this before, and I’m going to continue saying it, because it’s worth repeating: His try-hard behavior in years past drove me crazy. Even though I wanted to like him, I found it cringey and conceited. But in the wake of the #MeToo movement I’ve been able to view his past behavior through a different lens — he was being overeager and ambitious, but entirely harmless. I feel silly now for faulting him — a young actor who found fame and was just excited about it and hungry to grow his career. His dancing and impressions and questionable 3-month romance mean very little in the grand scheme of things. More importantly, he seems like a kind, intelligent, talented person (who has also definitely calmed down as he has aged, which is more my speed lol). I can’t help but be fond of someone who has continued to be an overall good dude when so many of his peers are rude at best and, well, sexual offenders at worst.

    He’s one of the rare good ones.

    • Nikki says:

      Very well put, Case!! I totally agree–he really does seem like a kind and intelligent person. And maybe he did get a little burned in the past, but we all have! He’s aging gracefully, and I will always love Tom in anything he chooses to do.

    • virginfangirl says:

      Agree 100% that he seems very kind, which I find extremely sexy.

    • EllieMichelle says:

      In comparison to some of the things other actors have done (I mean in terms of stunts and thirst, not necessarily nefarious stuff) I think Tom is pretty harmless. I like him. I still like Jake G too after his Swift period.

    • Cranberry says:

      Yes. You explained more fully what I wrote up thread. He’s always been a lovely man that treats everyone with notable kindness and attention.

  17. Ninette says:

    Very happy to see Tom finding is his way back into the spotlight again. I really hope we will see a lot more of him soon. But I have to say I’m not a fan of the beard, it ageing him and its hides that beautiful jawline.

  18. jammypants says:

    I love that hair color on Anne. Also I like that her lip color is soft. Her features are very characteristic and softening up the look makes her seem more approachable.

  19. SK says:

    Jessica Chastain is beautiful but she consistently never gets it right with fashion…
