      I hope he didn’t need to go through airport security in that outfit.

      • Qitkat

        And if he did, he put a smile on all the female faces watching.

          “I’m sorry sir, you must either remove your trousers or choose a pat-down screening. You may wish to consider that if you choose the physical screening, the lottery to select the agent may delay you a few moments.”

          • Qitkat

            “I’m sorry sir, all chain male is required to be x-rayed and shipped in the cargo hold.”
            Sorry, it’s late, yours is much funnier 😀

    • Glam Dixie

      Ok, I’m sorry, I like Lenny and all, but he looks a little douchy here.

      • scrappy1

        Right? I like him too, but short of actual medical need, I cannot forgive sunglasses on the red carpet.

        • JasmineAM

          Haha, I’d totally wear them on the RC. I’d absolutely hate those hundreds of light bulbs going off for several minutes.

          • scrappy1

            Hmm . . . fair point. Quick search suggests he pretty much always wears them when being photographed, so maybe he has sensitive eyes. In that case, he’s pulling it off. :)

            • patticake1601

              He wears them when he is being interviewed also. Saw him a few weeks ago on Kelly and Michael Live and he never took them off. If he has a medical problem then ok it’s fine but if not, well it’s just plain rude to not take off your shades when talking to people.

            • Qitkat

              Mike Kors never got the memo either apparently. As an aside, I can’t imagine anyone ever called him anything but Michael. I called a co-worker Johnny instead of John once as a joke, and he gave me the stare of death.

      • Synnamin

        I agree. I still wouldn’t kick him out of bed, though

        • Rand Ortega

          I would. More room on the floor (rim shot!).

          • Louise Bryan

            Ba-dum bump!

            • Rand Ortega


      • e jerry powell

        To be fair, he was also performing.

        • Glam Dixie

          That actually does make a difference. It’s a good outfit for a performance, but not for someone just attending.

    • Daisy Walker

      Not sure about the leglaces (leglets?), but I’ll still take him. To go, please.

    • MilaXX

      It a look only Lenny could wear.

      • Bethany Fairbrother

        Agreed. The look is totally Lenny, and only Lenny could wear that without looking like a douche bag.

        • MoHub

          But Adam Lambert would try.

    • nyazgirl

      He could be wearing an izod and lederhosen… He’s still my ultimate hearthrob.

    • Random Compliments

      He’s looked the same since 1995.

      • quiltrx

        And he will continue to do so as long as at least 80% of us still want to shag him rotten. Which means he will likely look like this the day he leaves this earth!

        • Qitkat

          *shag* Such a perfect word 😉

    • Diego!

      Lenny, send this outfit to my house ASAP. I love it! Thank you!

    • Just Me

      When I first opened this post, I swear I thought this was his outfit for the VMAs and I was about to bow down to him for showing the babies how to be a grown, sexy, rock-of-ages man. But given the venue? Still, grown and sexy, (cuz, hey, it’s still Lenny and I would probably lick him clean – get your minds out of the gutter, BKs, THAT is not what I meant…oh never mind, who am I kidding? – carry on…), but sadly not feeling this is venue appropriate. This event called for a proper shirt – a Lenny shirt to be sure – but still, a proper shirt. He could have done much better.

      • ballerinawithagun

        He actually performed.

        • Just Me

          And I am sure he was great.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Rocker Tux. I like. Of course.

    • NC_Meg

      Those pants are, quite literally, crazypants.

    • Sobaika

      Oh, what-ever. I’d still hit it quicker than Superman.

      • kimmeister

        Does that mean you’d hit it quicker than you would hit Superman, or that you’d hit it quicker than Superman would hit it? 😀

        • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

          Did someone say three way with Lenny Kravitz and Henry Cavill?

    • PastryGoddess

      Yes please

    • Imasewsure

      This look is past it’s prime… a world better than most of the assery on the RC there but still not great

      • Imasewsure

        Oops… I thought this was for the VMAs… for some reason, it works better for me as part of the US Open but only if everyone was a tad casual too

    • alyce1213

      I love the jacket and all, but I think a great shirt — unbuttoned to the pupik for sure — would look better than a white V-neck. It’s just a safe, lazy choice, I think.
      (Eta: Also, shave neck pubes)

    • majorbedhead

      Not crazy about it, but man, he’s one gorgeous, gorgeous man.

    • crash1212

      Love this man. Love his style. Having said this…I think this is a bridge/chain too far even for me. Pull it back a bit next time Mr. Kravitz.

    • NoveltyRocker

      Blazer looks like lady’s wear with it’s sheen and slim fit.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      There must be the proverbial portrait in an attic somewhere because the man does not age!

    • Sarah

      “I’m a traveling jewelry salesman and my necklaces are on display for your perusal.” (Is what those pants said to me.) But I don’t care, he’s still cool.

    • Donyelle

      Leonard…LEONARD! You’re fit and fine at 49. Stop with the hipster punk pants.

    • ballerinawithagun

      I will always love Lenny!

    • filmcricket

      Needs a different shirt. Also, my kingdom* to the person who can find me a gif of Colin Mochrie on Whose Line? going “Niiiiice pants!” because it’s a response I need in so many situations.

      *Note: may not actually have a kingdom.

      • Linda LaPaz
      • Linda LaPaz

        I posted a link but it’s stuck in moderation. Just google “gif of Colin Mochrie on Whose Line? going “Niiice pants!” on images page. I think it’s the third result.

        • filmcricket


      • formerlyAnon

        Colin Mochrie reference! [When people write books about the Golden Ages of Television Comedy, that show will be a pillar.]

    • VioletFem

      YEAH to everything above the waist and NAY to everything below the waist.

    • amanda siegelson

      all i can think when i see these is: it must be exhausting having to look like this all the time. it’s really time to start moving on…

      • Qitkat

        Not so much compared to the GagaMadonnaRihannaMiley, and what the female of the species has to go through.

    • Fordzo

      He’s got some skinny chicken legs, no?

      • Rand Ortega

        I’ve never seen a rock star who didn’t. & I’ve worked w/ quite a few. Might be the drugs.

        • Fordzo

          Meatloaf had/has man-sized legs.

          • Rand Ortega

            Meatloaf was/is plus sized, not just his legs. As is John Popper of Blues Traveler. Still a rarity in rock stars.

          • Scoobydrew

            Thank you, Fordzo!

            This comment made me LOL for reals!

      • jencapture

        That was my first thought, too!

    • Rand Ortega

      It’s Lenny. All I need.

    • lilyvonschtupp

      C’mon its Lenny! He has his own thing going, and damnit always looks fly.

      Besides, you wanna know where else he has piercings???;o)

      • formerlyAnon

        I NEVER want to know where anyone has their not-visible-in-street-clothes piercings. I know I’m old fashioned, but it’s like talking about, in which tongues-and-fingers-where detail, what someone likes in bed – if I’m not actually in bed with you, I SO prefer not to have that picture.

    • SportifLateBoomer

      OK another Lenny Kravitz pic and after all these years, I still don’t feel him. He’s always struck me as a watered down Jimi Hendrix manque, from his music to his style. I love me some man of color rock and roll bad boy look and attitude, but he does not float my boat at all. I leave him to you. :-)

      • Rand Ortega

        LOL! Back in the “Romeo Blue” days we in the music video production business called him “Lenny Hendrix” ’cause it was more than obvious he was just copying Hendrix on every level, down to how his people had us shoot his videos & the angles, lenses we could use. But, to his credit & talent, by ’90 he had really developed his own look & sound.

    • Laurie Landry

      The chain pants are stupid.

      • e jerry powell

        But he was being a rock star that night, to. He wore them on stage when he was performing.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      he would look SO MUCH BETTER without all those clothes getting in the way.

    • Getoverit

      It is just me or do the skinny jeans and big shoulders plus big hair give him a Charlie Brown look?

    • Poeta Paz

      Where does he gets his clothes? Who made this?

      • e jerry powell

        Where do any rock stars get their clothes?

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      How does he avoid elderly gay windchime? Because the elements are all there and yet he looks amazing.

      • AmeliaEve

        Because he projects masculine confidence and doesn’t pout. Also because his suits fit.

        • formerlyAnon


    • Meg0GayGuys6

      Cinna, take off your glasses so we can see your gold liner :)

    • MaggieMae

      Expected. It’s very Lenny. I’d like to see him take the shades off, and clean up that neck. Love the boots. Love his ‘fro.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      I was fine until I got to the leg chains, Len, I’ve gotta tell ya.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      Rawwwr. That is all.

    • marlie

      Lenny Kravitz perfection. This won’t work on everyone, but it looks pretty darn hot on him.

    • formerlyAnon

      Pants get a pass because he performed in them. The shirt could be better. He’s Lenny effing Kravitz and is still simply rotten with “IT” so do I care? I do not.

    • Danielle

      It’s…a look, for sure.

    • Krysta

      WHY does he not look too old for this. WHY!

    • jjtxgrrl

      I guess there are no words….

      I have a few….He is beautiful. But skinny-ish jeans make his head look gigantic.

      • Trickytrisha

        He is delicious, huh? I think the lollipop head thing isn’t helped by having a short neck, or at least the appearance of one, since the neck beard kind of blends in with his jaw and chin..

    • meowing

      He’s in a league of his own. He could show up wearing the sartorial equivalent of a disco ball (which really isn’t too far off from this get-up) and it would be appropo. Carry on.

      Never change darling, never change.

      Enough with the chains! And great big head on skinny stick figure. No. Just no.
