Go Retro! 10 Guy Celebs Who Rock 1950’s Style (And Look Hot While Doing It)

By  | 

In a world of iPhones, Angry Birds, and Lady Gaga, it is hard to imagine a time when poodle skirts, chocolate milkshakes, and drive-ins were the most popular things around. But we are sooo nostalgic for that time–and we weren’t even alive then! Maybe we’d never want to give up the Internet, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love it when male celebs go super-retro, like they’ve been plucked straight out of the 1950s! Like these guys…

Justin Bieber
Since watching Justin Bieber’s hairstyle change is, like, a thing, we immediately realized that The Biebs is trying the pompadour. Maybe it’s just for the cover of his “Boyfriend” single, but we likey. The Bieber swoosh? Already forgotten.



Darren Criss
As Blaine on Glee, everything from his cardigans to his styled hair channels Mr. Rogers. In real life, half of the time Darren still looks like an extra from Bye, Bye Birdie. But don’t take away his bow-ties! He looks mighty dapper.

Bruno Mars
Bruno croons and seduces with the energy — and, let’s be honest, wardrobe and hairdo — of Elvis Presley. That baby blue suit is almost too much to handle. Did we just go back in time or what?

MTV

Zac Efron
Oh, how we wish we could be jamming in a Cadillac with Zac! With his greased hair and smooth vibes, he’s looking super-suave.

Drake Bell
Um, those Buddy Holly glasses scream the 1950s! Drake’s doing the whole geek-chic thing, with Mad Men hair to boot.

Tyler Posey
For Best Coast’s “Our Deal” music vid, Tyler dressed up like a modern-retro gang member in love with his rival gang’s leading lady, Chloe Moretz. What’s more 1950s than tragic, West Side Story luuurve? (And that hairdo.)

MTV

Nick Jonas
Okay, so he’s mostly dressing up retro for his role in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, but Nick still looks adorbs wearing a satin green bow tie and crisp business suit. Plus, check out that smug smile! He likes it too.

Robert Pattinson
RPattz always has a sexy, rugged edge, and here he looks like he’s been pulled straight from The Outsiders. With his leather jacket and jeans, we just wanna say, “What’s up, Ponyboy?”

Kevin McHale
Kevin proves that suspenders aren’t just for your grandpa — they’re definitely worth resurrecting in the 21st century.

FOX

Taylor Kitsch
In this James Dean-inspired photo shoot, Taylor Kitsch looks us straight in the eye and smolders. We’d be a rebel without a cause any day…as long as it’s with him!
