Do You Like Zac Efron Dapper or Casual?

09/15/2007 at 06:00 AM ET


Between High School Muscial 2 and Hairspray, Zac Efron has spent most of his summer on the red carpet. And most impressively, the young star has been holding his own alongside his fashionable co-stars in very grown-up and stylish suits — until he turned up at a Madrid photocall for Hairspray in cargo shorts, flip flops and a faded t-shirt. What gives, Zac? While he still looks good to us, the casual gear seems a bit out of place for a big event. Maybe he lost his luggage — it wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity had to walk the carpet in flying clothes — but we’ve got to say that we wish Zac would return to his sexy suits. What do you think? Tell us: Do you like Zac Efron better dapper or casual?

Personally, I like to think guys should have comparatively less experience with solariums than this, but honestly, I like the suit much better. Save the daggy mid-life sandals for retirees, I think.

Annastasia on

i dont even care, he is just sooo sexy.

Elle on

I gues I like both, but I’d love to see him in a different hair style.

Elle on

I guess I like both, but I would love to see him in a different hairstyle.

Jennifer on

I really think Zac is hot either way. I like both looks on Zac.

Ryne on

Who really cares what hes wearing? Zac can pull off any thing. I do love a gut in flip-flops.

katie on

Dapper!!! definatly!

Nick-E on

WHO CARES! I am so tired of hearing every little detail of these High School Muscial kids. It’s growing to be annoying.

amber on

i think he looks good either way, but for promoting his new movie, a tux looks best.

Lauren on

Zac looks sexy in both shots, but I think he’s hotter casual!!

Candy on

Dapper is so much better, casual is OK but man he is so cute in a suit and tie. Channeling the whole Cary Grant ambiance.

nicole on

i like zac no matter what he wheres

Quiana on

I like this guy. He’s got style as both!

sasha on

missy on

Personally, I think he looks awesome both ways but I like him dressed up a little more than casual….

kaitlyn on

He looks absoulutly fab in either looks! It doesnt matter what he wears because he is sooo HOT!!!

dawn on

It might be my age or something but isn’t there anyone old enough to grow chest hair that you could focus on.

Marly on

I love him dressed up. He looks smart, and ready to hit the big event, the red carpet.

Candy on

Personally, i like him casual but it really doesn’t matter. i like his old black hair better though, he looks like a pretty boy now.

Beth on

Zac looks way better dapper. I am so sick of all this hype surronding this guy. I view him as a phoney teenage heartthrob who is getting credit for a voice that isn’t even his.

alia on

That’s a hard one b/c he’s gorgeous no matter what….but i’d have to go w/ the suit…
…It looks nice and put together; and i love how the tie matches his eyes….he’s yummy:)

He looks good either way

Gabrielle on

Both…Zac Efron is HOT either way! I probably like casual a little better! Nobody can even compare to how hot he is! Especially when he is vith Vanessa! Who Cares about what happened to Vanessa! That doesn’t change the way she looks or acts! I still love her! ZAC EFRON AND VANESSA FOR EVER!

Cathy on

Zack denfully tooks better in casual wear!!
FOr SuRe!!!

Cathy on

Zack looks better in casual wear!!
FoR SuRe!!!!!!!!!

annie on

I prefer him in neither. I liked his retro look in Hairspray the best actually, or immediately after when it was spiked up a bit. He looks comfortable casual and is still neat and clean, so I guess either works for me. He can show up casual and pull it off more than most could.

Danielle on

Zac is really hot either way but I actually prefer him casual. I like him better when he’s not all made up.

eliza on

i like him in both i think he looks better in tux!

Anonymous on

either way hes hot =]

Kayla on

I think he looks better in the suit, but I have to say he looks hot all the time!

Kristi on

I think he needs to stop tanning. He looks like a girl and it’s not attractive at all. So neither look, I guess.

Molly on

Zac is a freak’n hottie and he can pull off anything you give him. so who cares as long has he keeps his gorgeous hair.

juliana on


Cee on

Who cares?
He’s gorgeouss.

tesia on

i think zac looks hott in both pictures but he looks the best in his casual clothing =)

Lauren on

he looks better casual, but if he’s on the carpet or something, dapper is better

Sarah on

cas def cas zac he looks to skinny in a suit! but he is def a hottie!

A.J. on

1 WORD…. FUGLY !!!!!!!!!

Stacey on

I think h looks good both ways. He looks better dapper when he is at a preofessional party but he also look really good causual in the picture above.

Eldora on

Definitely Dabber. I’ve always thought that men looks best in well-tailored-suit.

Liza on

he looks good in both of them, he is good-looking that whatever he wears, he is always hot!

Annika on

who cares what he wears! can you say GORGEOUS!!!!!

Rachael on

Zac looks hot in whatever he wears so i dont really mind, but recently i think he’s looked best in a suit!

Kaitlin on

Personally i like him more casual. Either way he looks hot though

katherine jones on

I personally think he looks good both ways because a guy like him so sexy i think can pull it off. And to Alex give it a rest it was that movie that made the Disney Channal most wathed program. So i think that they have the right to say all they whant about the movie.

katherine jones on

So sorry alex it was that i was mad at was Nick-E who i was mad at.

katherine jones on

I personally think he looks good both ways because a guy like him so sexy i think can pull it off. And to Nick-E give it a rest it was that movie that made the Disney Channal most wathed program. So i think that they have the right to say all they whant about the movie.

Sarah on

dapper, casual he looks like a slob.

Julie on

He is hot either way.

Tiffany on

I don’t like him either way!

tara on


j on


Anna on

suit take things seriously!! youre a movie star for gosh sakes!

Jenna on


Karen on

Dapper. Definitely.

Tracy on


Tru on

I just don’t see why all the hype surrounding this guy? He’s so ugly. His hair looks like a rag muffin. Post him when he’s actually done more than make 1 movie and 2 Disney movies. Please don’t compare him to Cary Grant neither, compare George Clooney to Cary Grant, not Zac Efron. If I really had to choose, I’d choose both the dressed up look and the casual look. The casual look would look best at home though, not really to this extreme on the red carpet.

I’m with ya Dawn.

hhhheee iiisss sssooo hhhhooottt

Jenna B on

Casual wins for sure. He doesnt have to be dressed up to win my heart. He can win it either way.

Melly on

I guess you have to be about 15 years old to think he’s attractive. He just looks like a kid to me. Suit is better though.
