What Was He Thinking? Jeremy Piven's Ascot

There is a delicious irony that as Jeremy Piven’s Entourage alter-ego Ari Gold was losing his biggest client during the show’s finale, the actor was winning an Emmy for his portrayal of the uber-driven agent. Less delightful is Jeremy wearing a polka-dotted ascot to the awards. We know that the actor loves the ladies, but turning to Hugh Hefner for his style cues is not winning him any fashion awards. Why not take a page from another award-winning actor and hot bachelor George Clooney and swap the ascot for a classic bow-tie? Now, let’s hug it out.

Your turn: What do you think of Jeremy’s ascot? Is it a hit or miss? Leave a comment and let us know!

He’s adorable! I would like to see him with only the ascot on! He is great in Entourage…

I liked that he had the nerve to do it. Wasn’t enamored of it, but I don’t think it’s ugly, either. Thumbs up from me!
My friends and I noticed him snubbing his presenters, too, but then he sounded like he was going to start crying before he finished his thank yous, so we thought maybe he brushed them off because he knew he was getting emotional and didn’t want to crack. who knows?

I think he would look a lot better if he was wearing it correctly. An ascot should be worn higher on the neck and then drap into and under the shirt. The colors are good and contrast well and it would have worked if draped correctly.

it’s cute, and so is he!

I liked the ascot–he looked hot. The only thing is when he got up on stage to accept his award, his shirt shifted and we could see his chest around the ascot. (not that I’m complaining TOO much!!) He’s so cute.

Ashlee on

He is a kick back person in the real life, and that is reflected in his decision. I think its great.

Amanda on

I think it looks great. He is just bringing some life, laughs, and spunk to boring men’s formal wear

Kim on

I gotta say – I love it. I think he stands out amongst all the drab black suits/black ties. You have to give him snaps for taking a chance and standing out among the crowd. People aren’t talking about Seal and his boring ensemble today….

I think Jeremy looks great! The ascot is a daring move, but he pulls it off in grand style. He so deserved that Emmy, and he deserves to be on a Best Dressed List as well.

Michelle on

It was something different and he looked great in it.
