Long-time, devoted Bitter Kittens know that T + Lo have a longstanding issue with the way Miss Downey dresses herself. For the Cliff Notes version, head over here and watch us yell at him impotently. Basically, our bitch comes down to this: poledancing for any project requires a little more effort than putting on an ill-fitted suit and a pair of kicks more suitable for a grade-schooler.
So perhaps it may surprise you when we say, if RDJ showed up on the red carpet looking like this more often, we’d complain far less:
Robert Downey Jr. attends the ‘Iron Man 3’ Photocall in Munich, Germany.
Yes, he’s still being an ass on the RC, and no, we can’t say this outfit looks stylish as the term is normally defined, but this is an actual put-together look. There was thought and effort made. It tips its hat to the setting in a cheeky way. It’s got real personality to it. And perhaps most strange of all, this outfit fits him better than anything we’ve seen him wear in years. This illustrates an idea we’ve had for a while about actors and fashion. If they’re someone like RDJ, who clearly doesn’t take it seriously, then a stylist should direct him to think of the red carpet appearance as a performance and the clothing as a costume.
Seriously, we love this. It’s fun. More, please.
