I love that the “Sherlock” powers that be realize how much their show means to us and play along with us — and do things that allow us to play along with them!
Benedict: “Hello, I’m Benedict Cumberbatch and I’m accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.”
Person: *Dumps water all over Ben but spills a bit on themselves as well*
Benedict: “Oh my God. Are you okay? I’m so sorry. Are you cold?! Here, have my towel and dry off. You poor thing.”
It’s only your first comic con, Benedict. And there’s already so many dick jokes.
The Express Tribune Chooses Tom Hiddleston as its 2013 Male Style Icon [x]
We present to you Tom Hiddleston, the British actor who shot to fame playing Marvel’s Loki, as our Male Style Icon 2013. He’s not only an A-list actor, but a rising style icon who we feel is the very definition of a well dressed modern man. With his pitch-perfect elocution, old-school good looks, a mischievous edge and a sharply-tailored yet youthful fashion philosophy, Tom Hiddleston leads a growing group of English thespians with a thoroughly modern sense of style.
He seems to have terrible luck with rankings, coming in at No 2 on Empire’s The 100 Sexiest Movie Stars List 2013, and just losing out to Dan Stevens for the title of GQ’s Best Dressed Man, but he’s definitely on the top of all our lists. Hiddleston is a quintessentially British gentleman, who looks like he goes to sleep in a three-piece suit, so much so that Esquire used him to illustrate a ‘How to wear Black-tie’ guide. That’s not to say that he can’t pull off casual cool, his personal favourite item from his wardrobe is an Armani leather jacket. We say that any man that can pull off a horned helmet or a studded Versace jacket is an absolute keeper. With an array of hairstyles ranging from short and cropped to long and slicked back like his iconic character, Hiddleston doesn’t shy away from experimentation.
As menstylefashion.com puts it, there’s a playful edge to this look that comes across both in Tom’s body language — the key to all successful styles — and in his choice of accompanying pieces. Whether it’s thick framed sunglasses, a bookish scarf or a cheeky pair of cowboy boots, Tom ensures that a flash of personality keeps the look from becoming intimidating. This is reflected in his more casual wear, which functions as the very definition of ‘smart casual’; those same tailored suit trousers and Oxford shoes paired with a simple T-shirt and leather jacket combo.
He’s currently serving on the London Collections: Men committee of the British Fashion Council because Chair of London Collections Dylan Jones recognised how influential Hiddleston is when it comes to style. Whether he is in medieval kingly garb, a WW1 soldier’s uniform or in a tuxedo on the red carpet, he looks effortlessly well put together. It’s no wonder why he has been named Glamour’s Man of the Year.

Jim Parsons is the cutest cuddly toy on earth and feels terrible when he drops buckets of ice cold water on people, even if it’s for charity. (◡‿◡✿)
