Tom Hiddleston wore the hell out of a Ralph Lauren suit for Betrayal’s opening night

Betrayal Opening Night Party - Arrivals.

Here are some photos from the opening night event of Betrayal on Broadway. Betrayal has been in previews for weeks already, but now it has officially opened. I always forget that Tom Hiddleston knows how to wear a f–king suit. He really does though. I think his secret is that he actually takes the time to get his suits properly tailored, which means that he’s not picking out stuff at the last minute, or expecting designers to just send him stuff which is vaguely “his size.” I guess he needs special tailoring too – I imagine his inseam is crazy, because he’s got really long legs. But yeah, he looks like a male model in this Ralph Lauren suit.

His costars Charlie Cox and Zawe Ashton were at the opening night event, of course. Zawe wore an Erdem dress. I’ve been sitting here, trying to figure out how I feel about this dress? I still don’t know. I generally don’t like anything in the chartreuse family, but the graphic is sort of interesting. The design isn’t great though, and the red bow is stupid, as are the ruffles. I guess that answers that – I dislike this dress. That being said, it’s event-appropriate and she’s a pretty woman. I also feel pretty sure that she and Tom are dating, and I can’t believe it’s not a bigger conversation! Remember when he was spending time with Elizabeth Olsen? That was, like, a DEFCON 1 Hiddlemergency. But it’s just *crickets* for Zawe and Tom?

As for the American reviews of this production – everyone seems to love it.

    That suits looks great, but oh Tom, the hair. Let it go.

    • M says:

      The hair is so tragic. He should really invest in a shorter haircut. It makes the receding hairline less obvious. Or just go get a transplant.

      • So cool says:

        If woman has a small boobs, you just said – hey girl get implants?
        Dude has a big forhead. He just a accept s it and is confident. Some dudes get fake tan, hear transplant and Botox. For me it is pathetic.

      • leachglasses says:

        Jude Law eventually owned the receding hairline instead of pretending it wasn’t happening, and looked much better for it.

  2. smcollins says:

    Thank you! I could use a little Tom on this dreary, rainy day, wearing the hell out of a suit. Lookin’ good, Tom…lookin’ good.

  3. JanetFerber says:

    Yes, more Tom Hiddleston, please. Could he also replace Boris Johnson as Prime Minister? Tom is one of the hottest men around. Ample qualifications for a Prime Minister, methinks.

  4. Lina says:

    Everything above the neck looks bad. Really, really bad. And no one cares about who he’s dating because no one really cares about him outside of being Loki?

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      You mean YOU don’t care. There are plenty on Hiddleston fans that do.

    • Emma says:

      Lina – you’re commenting on an article about him on BROADWAY. A production that has been extremely successful and popular. But yeah… go ahead and say “no one knows him outside of Loki” if that’s true then why did you click this article about him looking amazing in a suit? Your point is dead.

  5. Jb says:

    He’s good looking and I would drool over him if not for the whole Taylor Swift fiasco…Forever Tainted from Taylor!!!

  6. Suzieq359 says:

    Hate her dress. So tragic. Their body language doesn’t give an intimacy vibe so I’m not convinced they are dating.

  7. Mere says:

    I’m going to see this tonight and I’m super psyched!

    • So cool says:

      Have fun. I saw it in London. So so good. All three are great, but Hiddles and his face acting. Wow. His eyes an jaw can tell more than 1000 words :)
      Dude belongs to stage.

  8. Lightpurple says:

    My husband Tom really does know how to rock the Hell out of a suit. It’s a skill. The beard and probably the long hair will be gone in January.

    Zawe has interesting taste in clothes. I think she goes for comfort first. Shiny second. I also think she is in a long-term relationship.

    Can’t wait to see this. We’re serving champagne on the veranda

    • Nanea says:

      It never really registered with me before you mentioned it – what Zawe’s main theme is, I mean.
      Shiny! Always, no matter what!

      Zawe’s cute though, and I really liked her in that role, even if some critics didn’t seem to get her/Emma.

      Tom was made to model suits, IRL, not in those awful Gucci ads. Even when he’s wearing his combat fatigues consisting of Aquatalia boots, the usual jeans and blue jumper, his security blankie aka the Osprey backpack and the Ray Bans.

      What made me pause momentarily: Ben Brantley in the NYT called Tom “as slender and sharp as a paring knife” in his review. Cooking prep will never be the same for me again!

      And I really hope you will have a great time – even if, it seems, the Broadway audience is not quite as well-behaved as the people in the West End, phones ringing and all!

    • MeganBot2000 says:

      There’s a great bit in her book (which is excellent) where she talks about choosing red carpet outfits.

  9. Chef Grace says:

    He always rocks a suit. The hair and beard, not for my liking. Like the short hair and scruff.
    I have to say I don’t understand the whole ‘he has been ruined for me because of Taylor Swift’ thing. Dude made a bit of a fool of himself but nothing that can’t be left behind now. I mean we had fun with swan pastry and beach shenanigans. All so innocent seeming in these dark times.

    • leachglasses says:

      I also feel a bit bad for him because as much as people who, for example, read a gossip blog knew him, he wasn’t real A-list famous. Like, he wasn’t Tom Cruise. People wouldn’t recognise him wandering down a street anywhere in the world. I don’t think he really understood what he was getting into.

  10. Fluffy Princess says:

    I’m meh on Hiddleston in general, but I have to say, that suit is perfection. And, he looks great in that suit.

  11. Derpy says:

    Blah on hiddleston

    Yay Charlie!

  12. Lolabunny says:

    I just don’t see Tom’s appeal at all.

    Charlie is pretty cute

  13. Shana says:

    I just got a case of arm muscle envy. Looking fabulous, Zawe!

  14. Valiantly Varnished says:

    So stoked to see this in November and drool over my ginger bae and his acting skills.

  15. Andrea says:

    So stoked to see this in October!

  16. girl_ninja says:

    Wasn’t she at the US Open with him?

  17. Ninette says:

    I would really love to hear kaiser’s reasons for Tom and Zawe dating. Cuz on tumblr there is a bit of drama about this. But there seems to be a general sense of ‘Naa, we dont think they are dating.’ Even amongst shippers.

  18. JanetFerber says:

    He rocks a suit, but imagine what he rocks inside the suit! He does for me just fine.

  19. Justme says: Could easily be The Sun hoping to get another Hiddleswift-type “exclusive”

  20. Adr1s says:

    After the whole Twiddleswift thing that I saw how much he regretted being public about his relationships there are a lot of fans, me included, that have agreed to not talk about his relationships. So if he’s dating Zawe then good for them! For me that’s not important, but LOOK AT HOW HE LOOKS IN THAT SUIT! DAAAAAAAMN!!

    • Nantondo says:

      Hear, hear Adris! Thank goodness you have stated the honest facts about Tom Hiddleston.
      He’s a fantastic actor and yes, he looks absolutely gorgeous in a suit. That said, I totally agree with you that the man should be left alone to live his own life and date whoever he fancies. The Taylor Swift fiasco must have knocked the poor guy sideways but he has since moved on. All his fans should really wish him all the best in his career as an actor and let him find peace and tranquillity in his private life.

  21. MeganBot2000 says:

    Zawe and her boyfriend live near me in London. They’ve been living together for at least a year or two.

  22. virginfangirls says:

    I never could like his beard when it was longer, but always love him in a close beard, and his long hair has totally grown on me. I’ll miss it when it’s gone. This Tom, in this navy RL, is absolute perfection to me.

  23. SJR says:

    Mmmm, yes. Tom is a good actor and very fine looking. He does wear clothes well, lovely hair, good smile, tall, excellent shoulders = heck, yeah!
    Take my money!

  24. robo-gal says:

    They’re both lovely and the play sounds interesting but I call BS on the relationship thing. Timing with the play’s official open is way too convenient and if it’s been going on as long as The Sun has claimed, it would have been all over UK tabloids
