Although the character he is most identified with – the half-vulcan, half-human Mr Spock of the 2009 and 2013 rebooted Star Trek movies – is hardly known for his chic daywear or the way he rocks a pair of jeans, off-screen the actor Mr Zachary Quinto has become something of a fashion plate.
He flew relatively under the radar in Los Angeles, but the 36 year old, who now lives in New York and is currently starring in a glorious revival of Mr Tennessee Williams’ memory play The Glass Menagerie, has become a regular on the party circuit. He has been known to shown up at a CFDA party in a classic yet contemporary grey suit made for him by his friend, Mr Todd Snyder, and attend a Met Ball in an eye-catching waistcoat, his hair tinted an electric blue to complement the evening’s punk theme.
“It’s more a matter of trying to make sure I’m wearing things that fit well but that are not boring,” says Mr Quinto in his dressing room upstairs at the Booth Theater, where in a few hours he will take to the stage in Mr Williams’ 1945 play. “As a guy, that’s a little more of a challenge than if you’re able to wear a big gown. We have to work with fewer resources. It becomes about the details. Cufflinks. Tie bars. Do you have a break in your trousers or is it a shorter hem? I’ve learnt a lot about tailoring: what fits and what lines are good for me and my body type.”
Today, a particularly cold Friday in Times Square, Mr Quinto is wearing a pair of dark, slim-fitting jeans and a cashmere sweatshirt – his “typical New York uniform” – before he’ll change into his period costume.
Zachary Quinto presented the honorary International Emmy Founders Award to writer-director-producer J.J. Abrams last night at the International Emmy Awards, and you can now find pictures up at the gallery:
On Monday, November 11, The Fund’s In the Spotlight donors were treated to our Annual Dinner—this year at NYC’s Maloney & Porcelli. The event’s special guests included Brian J. Smith, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Cherry Jones and Zachary Quinto of the critically-acclaimed revival of The Glass Menagerie, who participated in a fascinating Q&A moderated by Bloomberg Muse Arts & Entertainment Editor Jeremy Gerard. – Source
I came across to this delicious pictures taken back in September for the New York Times, to promote The Glass Menagerie. It was taken at the Monkey Bar, in New York. The place is attached to the Hotel Elysee, where Tennessee Williams lived and worked for over 20 years.
Edit: Thanks to Renee for the HQ untagged pictures.
Photos of Zach attending the “Twelfth Night” & “Richard III” Broadway Opening Night can now be found in the gallery.
Zach was one of Jimmy Fallon guests last November 5, to promote The Glass Menagerie. With the usual amazing chat, he also joined Lucy Liu, Jimmy and chef Giada De Laurentiis for a game of Catchphrase. I have the video up in our archive, and also screen captures and hq photos up in our gallery.
