Clothes wise it was slim pickings at the premier of Tropic Thunder, the new Ben Stiller vehicle in which Robert Downey Jr. blacks up. What? Yeah I know, you thought you had seen the last of that when the Black and White Minstrels was cancelled for being incredibly racist but then BAM! RDJ blind sides you and its 40 years ago all over again. But seriously the only really mention worthy outfit was Justin Theroux who came dressed as a Blues Brother, so instead I’m going to take you through the facial hair highs and lows of the event, because style doesn’t just begin and end with your clothes.
Yesterday, I really enjoyed Jason’s piece on the right-wing tendencies of modern magazines but this obviously doesn’t apply in America- well that’s if the latest US GQ cover is anything to go by. The actor Robert Downey Jr. stars and this time it is not with props from his latest Iron Man movie (ah, Gwyneth) but in seemingly fetish-inspired stocking hats and stripes. Would you expect anything less from Brandish-loved Terry Richardson?
