Few wear spandex as well as Andrew Garfield. Still, the Spiderman star manages to look even better after he’s hung up his second skin and stepped off set for the day. After hours, he reaches for casual outerwear, adventurous suiting, and the arm of girlfriend Emma Stone.
Adonis assumes his earthly form in Chris Hemsworth. Most famous for his starring role inThor (and his near-familial proximity to Miley Cyrus), the ponytailed actor opts for mostly monochrome formalwear, an extensive T-shirt collection, and his signature crimson cape.
As anyone who’s seen Twilight can attest, literally Robert Pattinson sparkles on screen. Fortunately, he burns just as bright in real life. The brooding Brit—and recent Dior Homme spokesmodel—consistently stands out in charcoal suits, slim-fit tuxes, and plaid shirting.
As Kurt Hummel on Fox’s Glee, Chris Colfer showcases a range of charms, including a penchant for unapologetic trendsetting. But when he’s not playing his best-known character, the multi-hyphenate writes, publishes, and produces as well. Colfer’s wardrobe is equally eclectic. The Golden Globe–winning actor has made a habit of detail-oriented accoutrements, open-collar shirts, and unflappable poise.
His days as the Disney Channel’s Louis Stevens long gone, Shia LaBeouf has since emerged as one of Hollywood’s most talented (and volatile) rising stars. Luckily, he wears his intensity well. In his wardrobe, LaBeouf successfully tempers Old Hollywood glamour with indie-film finesse for a tailor-made aesthetic.
Fashion followers first fell for Douglas Booth in 2009, when Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey cast him alongside Emma Watson in a series of campaigns for the brand. Thankfully, the rest of the world has since caught up. This year, he’ll star as the titular character in Carlo Carlei’s much-anticipated adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and will reunite with Watson in Darren Arnofsky’s Noah. In the meantime, he continues to score sartorial points in whimsical prints, sharp tuxes, and cozy knits.
That Zac Efron managed to parlay his teen-idol brand of fame into a successful film career is impressive. That he did so before descending into either obscurity or scandal is nothing short of miraculous. These days, Efron keeps it classy with sophisticated three-piece suits, fitted denim, and aviator sunglasses.
Comedian, actor, writer, and rapper Donald Glover is almost as beloved by fashion folk as he is by his legions of near-cultish fans. The artist sometimes known as Childish Gambino has modeled for Band of Outsiders, the Gap, and the pages of GQ. Off set, Glover goes for a punched-up prep aesthetic in graphic sweatshirts, shawl-collar knits, and lots of plaid.
Tom Sturridge cemented his style status earlier this month when Burberry debuted the campaign in which he and fiancée Sienna Miller jointly star. Depicting the fashion-forward duo in a passionate embrace, the ads expertly evoke the Tony-nominated actor’s romantic-meets-rocker sensibility. The aesthetic carries over to the red carpet, where Sturridge often tops trim suits and worn chambray with a rakishly angled chapeau.
Considering his current status as a Hollywood heartthrob, it’s fitting that Logan Lerman made his silver-screen debut in What Women Want. In the 12 years since, he’s nabbed a slew of star-making roles in such films as 3:10 to Yuma, Percy Jackson & the Olympians, and last year’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Lerman continues to please our sartorial eye in steely suits, patterned cardigans, and neutral knits.

Hollywood loves a golden boy. But while a previous generation of leading men may have catapulted to stardom in baggy jeans and Fruit of the Loom T-shirts, today's rising stars demonstrate as much talent in fashion as they do on film. We'd say these 10 are ones to watch, but then again, you probably already knew that.
