Ansel Elgort Is Everyone's Super Hot Emo Boyfriend From 2002

Putting the "hot" in Hot Topic.

Ansel Elgort is a fashion-forward man. He does not shy away from taking stylistic chances.

He makes bold choices with his wardrobe, and he regrets nothing.

But tonight may have been his boldest yet — when he showed up at the VMAs looking like all of us, right in the middle of our high school emo phase.

He definitely does not look bad, he looks really hot, in an early '00s emo way.

Do you hear that sound? It's the sound of Pete Wentz, weeping for the loss of his look.

Again, ANSEL LOOKS HOT — the kind of hot we all were back in 2002, trying on the entire accessories section of Hot Topic and humming Dashboard Confessional.

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me!!!

when mom says you'll grow out of this phase but you're just like SCREW YOU, MOM. THIS IS WHO I AM.

SO WON'T YOU KILL ME!??!

someone got lost on the way to the Tim Burton exhibit

SO I DIE HAPPYYYYY.

Long live Emo Ansel.
