Maybe it's just me that sees it, but there seems to be just the sweetest little bit of shyness and reservation in his face from the first frame when the dresser begins to straighten his costume. I suppose the appeal of that little bit of vulnerability for me lies in the fact that he doesn't seem to think he's God's gift, but "just plain" Elijah.

That is definitely part of his appeal, Honey, EW's humility about the gift of his looks. Perhaps because he's a man, too, he doesn't think of his "gift" as unambivalent. I am sure he appreciates people saying he looks beautiful to them rather than repellent, but he also reads the remarks that call him "small" (what man wants to be called "small" in any of its meanings?), petite, porcelain-faced, androgynous, even girlish. Those remarks might temper any inclination to feel secure in his good looks.
