Last night, I covered The Walking Dead red carpet. Now, as most of my friends, readers, and random stalkers know… my red carpet reports are usually about the ladies and their high heels.
But last night’s event was hosted by AMC channel, and the influence of its hit show Mad Men was so pervasive, I absolutely could not ignore the men. In spite of the icy temps, the fellas were looking hot-hot-hot!
My favorite suit of the night belonged to Steven Yuen. The skinny tie, narrow lapels and crisp, clean look were just so perfect.
AMC News Host Jacob Soboroff was also rocking the retro-cool vibe with his jacket and tie, plus those sexy black rimmed glasses (glad those are back in style).
Linds Edwards was hands-down the best rocker/hipster of the night. I wasn’t able to get as many good photos of everyone as I would have liked, but I had lots of interviewees in front of me and also the carpet was tight — I could not zoom out very well. On the left, Linds had a bandana wrapped around his wrist, plus several assorted bangles with pendants shaped like guns, skulls, knives, etc. I really liked it the whole deal. He had skinny jeans with the cuffs folded over.
Definitely stripped down compared to the stars, but I thought even AMC’s Roving Photographer looked smashing.
Andrew Lincoln, the main attraction of The Walking Dead (aside from Frank Darabont — his photos are at horror.com), also looked great but I never did get a decent snap of him. In fact, I feel kind of guilty posting such an unflattering angle of him, but it’s all I’ve got. He totally blew me away with his memory — the first thing he said to me when he stepped up to my mic was, “Oh, hi. We talked at Comic-Con!” That was three months ago. How could he possibly have remembered that? I’m impressed.
OK, the women were there too. This is Gale Ann Hurd, a producer on the show. I liked elements of her look (patterned tights, boots, leopard, leather, studs) — but not all together. She was really funny and smart (as usual) though, so it was a pleasure (as always!)
Shoes, shoes. Publicists’ shoes!
Here’s me with Mike from ELS (the lighting people). We remember to take a pic together every couple of years (that last one was at the Hellboy 2 premiere, even though we see each other all the time!).
Myself and the zombies… at first, I tried to blend in. But who am I kidding? I can’t hold a snarl for more than a few seconds.
I hardly ever wear fur, but I do have a couple of pieces. This one is a Chris Ann original. I figured for something called “Walking Dead” it was appropriate. The last time / item was my fur-lined suede leather jacket at The Wolfman premiere (it was freaking freezing that night, too. Yesterday, I was so cold I thought my mic had turned into an popsicle).
