Here at Spidey Sense, I love nothing more than a good cause, particularly when a Salvatore Brother is involved. So when I heard Paul Wesley (Stefan from the Vampire Diaries) was up for Underappreciated Entertainer of the Year at EW, I knew I had to take action!
This poll of Stefan’s best looks from TVD series so far, inspired by a post about Viking Vamp Eric Northman on Sookieverseblog, is designed to show why he will always be fully appreciated here at Spidey Sense.
Vote for your favourite look and tell me why you loved it in the comments, then keep your eyes peeled for Round 3 of Underappreciated Entertainer of the Year at EW, which our boy has made it through to!
Best Stefan Outfit
Hoodie of Hedonism (TM Kjewls) Stefan
Hallowed since the early days of season one for its knee-weakening effect on the female Vampire Diaries population, when the Hoodie of Hedonism is on you just know it is only a matter of time before Stefan is going to be getting all up in someone’s personal space, whether it be a crazy ex or the not-so-friendly neighborhood werewolf.
Really only half an outfit, but a little thing like details will never get in the way of your viewing pleasure in Vampire Diaries Sensory Overload Sundays. Much has been made of Paul’s insane abdominals, but somehow tortured Stefan being tied up with vervain-laced ropes and him heaving with exertion enhances them in a way that has yet to be topped.
Clearly I have a dark and twisty, sado-masochistic mind.
Aside from being overrun by supernatural creatures, Mystic Falls also seems to have a paranormal attraction for town events. Some have laughed at the ludicrous number of balls, pageants and fundraisers, but if it means Stefan gets suited up, I DON’T REALLY CARE!
Stefan had a fleeting moment of joining the football team early on in season one, but his vampire brother Damon ate the coach so that ended that. Our inner pep rally girl was awakened by the sight of Stefan in the school’s maroon and white. You know what would have made it sexier? If his jersey number was 33…
Badass black jacket zippered up tight. Brooding brow working overtime. Best worn when running back into a tomb to save your one true love or when slapping around her brother for trying to commit vampirecide. While doing so you will look SMOKING HOT.
White Tank Stefan
Sorry, I couldn’t think up a clever name for this outfit because I was too distracted by Paul’s insanely well-developed arms. I’ll give you a moment to stare and collect your thoughts. There you go. This wardrobe staple is shown to its best advantage when you knock out push ups trying to take the edge off a blood addiction.
“Cover up, Fabio!” Damon told Stefan when he saw Elena tending to wounds strategically placed on Stefan’s chiseled stomach. Team Stefan fans around the world disagreed and drank in the sight of the Stefan in a Panty Dropper Blue T-Shirt, clearly inspired by Eric Northman’s swoon-inducing Panty Dropper Blue Sweater (another Kjewls TM! I want her to be my stylist!)
Peter Pan Stefan
This is probably going to be a polarizing look, but for those who don’t mind old-fashioned garb, gunshot wound from a vamp-hatin’ father included, here it is.
Though much of Stefan’s time is spent brooding and Elena-longing, he does occasionally crack a smile or show a lighter side. This tends to happen when he is wearing his faithful plaid shirt.
C’mon, this is a VAMPIRE show! How could I not include Stefan in a leather jacket?!
So there you have it, Stefan lovers! Which outfit is your favourite? Did I miss one? Use your vote wisely, as I am giving you only one, and there is no “All of the above” option!
