Get the Look: Ian Somerhalder

Whether you liked him as Boone in Lost or as Damon in The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder has a signature look that you can get!

A Louisiana boy, Ian Somerhalder now lives in New York, and spends most of his time writing, acting and doing yoga. He also loves water skiing, snow skiing and horseback riding in his free time.

Before he became an actor, Ian started his career at age 10 as a model. He has modeled for Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabanna, Gucci, Versace and Guess. His sense of style looks casual but practiced, seems relaxed but active, and he knows how to strike a great pose.

Clothing Brands

His shirts are almost always open at the neck. Even his crew-neck t-shirts (from designer Rogue) appear stretched out to look like v-necks. His casually draped jackets are always structured, whether he is wearing a collarless leather jacket, a tuxedo jacket, or a structured blazer. He has been spotted wearing baggy Diesel Jeans and Paige skinny jeans (and occasionally Calvin Klein under them, if you must know). He occasionally sports a fedora -- a structured hat -- in various cool textures and materials.

Hair

In 2011, Ian sported longer tousled curls, but 2012 brought a short, spiky style that looks easier to care for and more versatile, too. As for facial hair, Ian often sports a 5-o'clock shadow to events, which adds to his "rugged good looks" vibe. As for the rest of his visible facial hair -- his eyebrows -- he leaves them a bit bushier and often shows emotion and expressions with just a slight lift of one or tilt of the other.

Attitude

As for looking cool, it doesn't stop at the eyebrows. This guy knows how to pose. Thumbs in his pockets, one leg always bent a little, cocking his head slightly to the side, he rarely flashes his teeth and instead smiles with his lips and his eyes. And speaking of his smile, he often shows a slightly lopsided smile, with one eyebrow cocked up to look like he is conspiring with you. Some call his look sexy. Others call it smoldering. Either way, practice it in the mirror for a few hours (we bet he does) before trying it out on those you want to impress.

Dear Dish-It in the forums

Dear Dish-It, I'm a 16 yr old sophmore and I LOVE Animaniacs and Queen. I have some problems emotionally and socially and I think different thoughts then others.  I get bullied sometimes cause I really take this little pic of Queen everywhere I go. I also sometime answer to the name of Freddie Mercury (no reason, just came from where I love Queen very much)  When a person bullies me to make me cry, what should I do?

You should ask the guy who he is then go round asking people you know if they know him. Then if they say yes you can be almost 100% sure it was them that told him your name. Hopefully this will give you an idea on who the guy is and help you keep on top of the situation.  :)
