Name the most iconic moment in red carpet fashion history. Perhaps, you think, it was in 1999, the 71st Academy Awards, Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink Ralph Lauren dress. Or maybe you preferred Bjork’s swan dress from 2001, or Lady Gaga’s meat dress from the 2010 VMAs.
Scrap it. You’re definitely thinking about Jared Leto on the Suicide Squad red carpet wearing a green Gucci overcoat and pink trousers.
If this was you, then have a sit down because Jared Leto out Jared Leto-ed himself at the Fashion Awards in London last night.
The Thirty Seconds To Mars singer wore a red silk overcoat with embellishments by Gucci, and yes, that is a Donald Duck appliqué on the lower hem. The coat draped over his shoulders, his hands tucked out of sight, it’s Hogwarts professor-meets-matador-meets-tap dancer – and it’s great.
This man is an Oscar winner. Jared Leto, Gucci fan boy, winner of the internet, most tattooed Joker, lover of of fash-un.
Here’s a picture of Skepta and Marilyn Manson hanging out backstage at the Fashion Awards.
