Lenny Kravitz on “Good Morning America”

Posted on August 09, 2013

Work them heels, Lenny.

 

Lenny Kravitz makes an appearance on “Good Morning America” in New York City.

Question: And don’t flip out on us for asking, Lenny fans. Do you think he can reasonably work this look indefinitely? On the one hand, it is pretty toned down from earlier Lenny styles. On the other hand, we’re on record as telling Johnny Depp that his rings and beads and gewgaws are getting a little stale and crusty. Can Lenny just pull that shit off better than Johnny or should he start thinking about cutting back on the fringe and the heels and the beads? We’re asking.

    • lehen

      1) he works it better than johnny, but 2) he needs to start thinking about toning it down

      • jen

        Exactly!

    • Diego!

      I agree guys… I’m getting tired of this look and his heels! Wear some other boots or shoes Lenny! You have an amazing body and can rock anything you’d wear! C’mon! It’s time

      • Monica Valbuena

        What’s wrong with the heels? Is it because those are ‘women’ shoes? If it is… newsflash, there is no such thing.

        • ToniMacAttack

          Yeah, I don’t know if he’s purposefully trying to fuck with gender constructions or if he’s just wearing what he likes–either way though, I sorta dig it.

          • artsykelly

            I have a feeling it’s a bit of both. He wears what he likes and says fuck you to gender constructions.

          • d4divine

            Have you seen him rock those Rick Owens boots. He is sickening!!

          • formerlyAnon

            While I enjoy the ease with which he wears heels, jewelry, scarves, fingernail polish and other more “feminine” touches, I honestly can’t give him a ton of credit for challenging gender constructions. His face and body are so unquestionably masculine that he never gets anywhere near the line of femininity or even androgyny, at least in my opinion.

            • Monabel

              But it’s interesting that he does this. Maybe he just wants to enjoy the “feminine touches” and that’s all?

            • formerlyAnon

              I don’t really care why, I LOVE how it looks on him. ;-)

              I just am not convinced that he’s pushing any significant boundary in terms of his image or in how he is perceived. Whether he’s consciously challenging gender constructions or just likes how the “feminine touches” look – or both – is pure speculation on my part, obviously.

            • fursa_saida

              I feel like he’s just part of an existing tradition in rock music, of men wearing or presenting themselves in ways that call back to feminine gender presentation. Look at some of the shit rock stars were wearing in the 80s, especially the hair bands. Look at KISS (specifically the shoes). Look at glam rock*. What’s different about him is that he wears it much less like a costume, and it doesn’t really come across as “ARE YOU SHOCKED YET” the way those costumes were intended to do. It’s much more natural to him. (Maybe that was less so when he was younger? I was pretty young at the time and wasn’t really paying attention.) Not trying to say he just strolled out of the womb in fringed boots, of course all of this is a conscious choice, but it feels less like a performance and more like genuine personal style.

              The heels on the boots themselves are really only outlandish on a man in the contemporary era; you’d see what we’d consider a feminine heel on men, whether we’re talking about cowboys or French court dandies, across a huge spectrum of times and places. I feel like that specific touch has a lot to do with the cowboy aspects of his style, but filtered through that vaguely femme rock lens.

              *if we want to talk about seriously messing with gender boundaries and androgyny, obviously David Bowie is your go-to.

            • Nelliebelle1197

              Um, and how is that not completely challenging a construct? Saying his masculinity keeps him from “challenging (a) gender construction” is pretty much nothing but narrow, definitional thinking and construct-building. Challenging proscribed gender roles is much deeper than surface androgyny or appearing feminine.

            • formerlyAnon

              Well, my train of thought was that if a public figure is challenging a culturally ingrained norm, there tends to be a push back – if there is little comment, if the viewer is not made uncomfortable, it’s not very challenging. Which is indeed, possibly too narrow a way to look at it.

        • Lucía Gavello

          I can tell you what’s wrong with THESE heels, they are butt ugly, he’s wearing suede in august and they don’t go with the pants.

          • RedRaven617

            I agree with you 100%. They look like suede cargo pants! No, just no.

        • Heather

          Is he short?

          • Diego!

            He is.

        • NC_Meg

          I was looking at these pictures thinking that men don’t wear shoes like that anymore but I wish they did. (But not these particular shoes because like a lot of BKs, I am not feeling the beige suede with fringes.)

        • Diego!

          I don’t have a problem with heels, but’s he’s been wearing them for ages, if I recall well. Besides, those are some serious ugly shoes/short boots!

      • Getoverit

        I wouldn’t want to see those boots on a man or a woman, especially not one wearing cargo pants. Awful.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      I think he’s got some miles left. It doesn’t look like self-parody yet and Depp often finds himself there. Not to be gross, but he makes me wonder what patchouli tastes like.

      • Jose R. Medina

        LOL every time I see a picture of him I alway’s think the same! What wine goes w/ patchouli ?

        • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

          I’m thinking skip the wine and head straight to a mescale. Lost Weekend With Lenny.

    • dustdevilliz

      I feel like his overall look right now is much less busy than Depp’s is. (Not just the jewelry, but keeping it simple with the classic, tailored pieces he’s wearing.) So, reason to hope?

    • AlisonS

      I feel like his fro gives him more license to work this look harder/longer than Johnny.
      Now…. When he reaches the 55 box, I’m going to think that it’ll look like he’s trying too hard. Unless he still hasn’t aged by 55 then fuck it & Cher out!

      • dustdevilliz

        The ‘fro also keeps him from wearing problematic hats, which is a major trouble area for Depp.

        • formerlyAnon

          I am Team Depp, but I cannot say you lie about some of those hats.

    • NOLA_gal

      Based on nothing at all, LK’s look has always seemed intrinsically Lenny, while JD’s just seems like an affectation. Love them both either way, but those pants have got to go. Here, I’ll take them for you…

      • marlie

        YES. This just seems genuine on LK. Can’t say the same for JD.

        • NOLA_gal

          Now I’m wondering if the seeming lack of intrinsic personal style is what makes JD so able to morph into his characters. Maybe he really IS the blank slate. I don’t mean that in a bad way, but I can’t remember ever seeing him look really at home in his own skin, even when he was a kid. If so, good on him for finding a job to pay him so well for it!

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

        Exactly. (Sorry, didn’t read others until I’d blathered out my own.)

      • MilaXX

        Agreed! Like Matt Smith’s hipster look Lenny’s hippy attire feels more a genuine part of him than an affectation.

    • madge

      it’s all good except the booties. put him in a pair of shoes procured from the men’s department, and he’s all good.

      • marlie

        I think the shoes are part of the appeal of the look. Why do heels have to be for women only? Men wore high heels in the 18th century, and Lenny’s shoes here don’t have a heel too much higher than the ones on cowboy boots.

        • IMNAngryLiberal

          I could care less about the heels, but I feel the same about suede booties in the summer for men as for women — ewww – stank foot!

          • Barb Rayhttp://www.google.com/

            Agree, the heels are fine. But, in addition to the stank factor, the fringe and the suede take them into clown territory for me.

            • OmegaMu

              I don’t agree about the “stank factor.” I think that issue comes from not wearing socks, we have no evidence that he is not.

        • madge

          it’s not just about the heel … it’s about the color and the tassel and the shape as well. they’re too pale and fragile and attention-pulling, when something a little sturdier would have balanced the rest of the (nice but somewhat bananas) outfit better.

          • formerlyAnon

            I don’t love the color, but for me the tassel is rock star acceptable. And the color slides.

            Of course, I think most guys dressed to be photographed should either be garbed in classically elegant suiting or in down & dirty rock ‘n roll of the glam & glam-adjacent variety with little in between. So, that skews my perspective.

    • Monica Valbuena

      I don’t know… I think the thing with Depp is he always looks like he doesn’t shower and like he is TRYING not to care while with Lenny is always looks thought out. Although I do admit it must be tiring to be him always thinking out how to best layer EVERYTHING.

      • Daisy Walker

        This. As much as I love JD in his film roles, in real life he looks like he smells like stale cigarettes.

    • Donyelle

      Fit and fine at 49, Lenny is doing Lenny.

    • Glam Dixie

      I’m all for the heels on men in general, but that ensemble is hiddy. He needs to tone that shit down a bit.

      • Isabel

        Isn’t it hot in NYC this week? Better as a fall outfit, n’est pas?

        • Heather

          Actually it has been quite cool-ish. Feels like fall. It’s still August tho, and suede and tweed have no place here.

    • rumcg66

      Yes. My answer is yes. He can work it until he dies from a case of terminal awesomeness.

    • marlie

      Lenny works it better than Johnny Depp. I don’t know when it’ll be time for him to tone it down; this look just suits him better than it suits Depp.

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

      Something about him is just getting better with age. Even with all his doodads. They don’t seem as painstakingly picked out and try hard the way Depp’s seem to. It’s as if he just woke up wearing them and they are just right. He’s got a rock n roll soul and Johnny did too, but then he made one too many giant commercial pieces of shit, left his wife for a younger model and started to become a cliche, affecting all the things he used to stand against. That’s just my opinion, thanks for asking.

      • Heather

        Indeed, Johnny’s taste in women has always disappointed me…

      • insertcleverbit

        Johnny Depp to me is more similar to someone like Steven Tyler – Lenny seems much more real.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      The difference between Lenny and Johnny: TAILORING. Everything always fits well enough and he knows how to stop just short of it turning into caricature.

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

        Oh what I wouldn’t give to measure that man’s inseam.

        • NOLA_gal

          AMEN, sister!

      • Imasewsure

        Tailoring and essential hotness versus kind of unhealthy looking dude who is a good actor

    • Shawn EH

      Lenny = law unto himself. Not in music, but definitely in fashion. Also, he’s some kind of vampire.

    • Lilyana_F

      Lenny is much more of a natural in this and I do believe he has the good taste to tone it down when the time comes. Johnny needs to take a few steps back, it’s all hanging and looking dirty, just no.

    • imakeart

      The laws of fashion do not apply to real rock stars. He can get away with whatever he wants.

    • filmcricket

      Again, it’s ’cause he’s a rock star. Think about how we applaud the crazy at the Grammys while expecting people to dress for the goddamn Golden Globes like they’re the Oscars. We just allow more leniency with our musicians.

      That said, I don’t care for this ensemble. The boots are ugly and the pants need to be killed with fire.

      • marlie

        The “killed with fire” line never ceases to make me laugh.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yeah. The pants are very, very questionable.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I wish he started removing the fringe and the beads, but this man can’t be not hot.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      He pulls it off because his stuff is relatively tailored, groomed, and modern, crazyboots aside. If he were still dressing like Are You Gonna Go My Way or Let Love Rule Lenny, then he would be a caricature. In fact, I’d say from the hips up, he looks pretty amazing.

      • Tatiana Luján

        “from the hips up, he looks pretty amazing” I agree 100%

      • MilaXX

        I don’t even mind the boots. He and Prince are little men, they are never gonna not wear heels. Unlike Tom Cruise they are upfront about it.

        • Denise Alden

          Okay, now I”m thinking about Prince *and* Lenny. Together. You know?

          • MilaXX

            Oh you dirty girl! Actually Lenny & Johnny have more in common. Lenny dated Vanessa, Johnny’s ex before she she and Johnny got together.

            • Denise Alden

              I didn’t know that! And yes, guilty dirty girl here.

            • formerlyAnon

              Hmmm. Lenny & Johnny has possibilities.

          • formerlyAnon

            Prince & Lenny is too much personality (or maybe ego). Can’t see ‘em together. Not even theoretically.

            • Denise Alden

              And I can’t stop seeing it!

            • formerlyAnon

              Well, enjoy! My mental image is two alpha dogs circling, with the neck ruffs up.

            • Denise Alden

              I’m not at liberty to share my mental image *blush*

            • formerlyAnon

              All the better for you, I expect.

        • majorbedhead

          Oh, no, he’s a wee one, too? Damn.

        • formerlyAnon

          Unlike Tom Cruise, it just makes them sexier.

          • Denise Alden

            Damn straight.

        • sunnycalif

          Lenny’s wiki says 5″7″, so he’s probably 5’6″

          • MilaXX

            yep, I was front row at a concert of his.I’m 5’3″ and was wearing platforms. I looked him straight in the eye.

    • MilaXX

      I think Lenny is pulling off aging hippy a 1.000 times better than Johnny.

      • marlie

        Yep.

        Also, did you change your avatar, or has it always been a kitty?

        • MilaXX

          I changed it last night. That’s Stormie the kitten I adopted last summer.

    • ChelseaNH

      I think the big difference is that his accessories seem more cohesive. He shouldn’t taken them any further, but he can probably hold this line for a while longer.

    • d4divine

      I think Lenny can rock this look as long as he likes because his look is always clean, polished, well tailored, and hella lux….the exact opposite of Johnny Depp. Lol

    • Tatiana Luján

      I wouldn’t mind the shoes if they fitted right with the pants, but they don’t

    • Rand Ortega

      I think he can. FRS, ya’ll. Work it until it don’t work no mo! Mick’s still got it at 70. Bowie at 65 could still do Ziggy today, no effort. Tina’s still hawt! It’s from w/in. Lenny still has swagga & that’s what counts. He’s toning it down, but he still has his style. Depp’s trying too hard to be cool, that’s the difference.

      • formerlyAnon

        I am still ok with Depp, but every other word you say is Gospel Truth.

        • Rand Ortega

          I’m still ok w/ JD, too. Even after “Dark Shadows” (broke my -squeeing -like- a- schoolgirl- when- I -1st found- out -they- were- making it- heart it was so bad)& “The Lone Ranger”. But on the RC, he really is an elderly gay wind chime.

          • formerlyAnon

            Oh god, Dark Shadows. I was sad, having hoped much as you did. (I may never actually *see* The Lone Ranger, based on what I’ve heard.)

          • formerlyAnon

            P.s. If someone with the right personality who looked *exactly* like that elderly gay windchime showed up on my doorstep I’d be on him like a chicken on a junebug, as they say. (And such a person would garner faaar more abuse and ridicule in my environs than Mr. Depp gets.)

            • Rand Ortega

              You crack me up! Me, too. Hit it like a Jeopardy button. RE: Dark Shadows. It made a profit. Can you believe it? Burton & Depp are talking about making another 1. Jonathan Frid is spinning like a rotisserie chicken.

            • formerlyAnon

              Well, maybe a 2nd bad Dark Shadows will create a double feature that one can enjoy as a movie night with drinking games. Turn off the sound and everyone in the room voice a character?

              (I crack me up. I imagine showing up at one of my departmental quasi-social events with someone looking like the elderly gay windchime and mentally sort the reactions into 1. Pity for my dreadful and desperate mid-life crisis, 2. Serious, quiet conversations about my mental health and 3. (if I’m lucky) one or two raised eyebrows of fascinated speculation. And the grin is just nailed on my face for a good 30 seconds.)

            • Rand Ortega

              Anything to get me that drunk I’m totally for. “Madam” or “birthing hips” would be great crutch words.

    • mjude

      i am not reading for him to give it up just yet.

    • purpleprose78

      It doesn’t look tired to me, but then, this screams rockstar to me which Lenny Kravitz still is. JD’s look just seems desperate these days. Not sure why that is?

    • AmeliaEve

      I think some of it is NY vs. LA. Lenny has swagger, but Johnny usually looks a little frightened to be out in public.

    • ashtangajunkie

      Lenny has style and swagger. I won’t mind if he works his Lenny look until the end of days. Johnny Depp looks like he’s trying to play a character that he hasn’t quite figured out yet. But he likes hats and jewelry, that much we know.

    • TweeAsFuck

      Bitch don’t age. So yeah, he can defintely ride this look out a little longer.

    • majorbedhead

      He could lose the fringed boots and I wouldn’t miss them. I think they’re ugly.

      But man, he’s a fine, fine specimen of a man.

    • Lori

      Indefinitely? No. At some point he too will begin to resemble an elderly gay wind chime. That point has not yet been reached though.

    • PeggyOC

      Lenny has never, ever done it for me. I’ll admit that he’s aging well, but I agree that this look is not.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      he’s just so beautiful i can almost forgive the boots. almost.

    • Missy

      I love him in heels.

      I hate that his pants make him look like he has knee-tumors.

    • decormaven

      It looks in keeping with his persona, and it looks clean and cared-for. Can’t say that for JD. Lenny continues to look good!

    • JauntyJohn

      Lenny is much farther away from his “sell by” date.
      Please, Gods, let this footwear become a trend. Why should the ladyfeet get all the fun?

      • formerlyAnon

        Yeah about both points, but especially the shoes.

    • MemHey

      To be a musician, you need to have a point of view. To be an actor, you need to be flexible and changeable with your point of view. Lenny has an established identity and can securely declare it through his clothes. I get the feeling that if someone came up to him and criticized his fashion to his face, he’d just shrug it off – security does not need external approval. JD, though I respect him as an artist, seems to still wonder what the world wants of him, or seems to be unsure of how to relate to the world. He does not seem to dress from a place of security, and so it turns out muddled. Perhaps the difference is in who projects an air of confidence, whatever their inner state may be.

      So, IMO, Lenny can continue dressing however he chooses, so long as he’s confident.

      • http://capturingaverage.com/ Solfish

        Really excellently stated! Totally agree. What MemHey said.

    • Poeta Paz

      In my opinion, Johnny looks like he didn’t shower, brushed his hair, iron his clothes or fitted the clothes properly. Lenny on the other hand looks like he did all the above and has his own style.

    • Laurie Landry

      Damn, everything looks real good, cept the boots.

    • SpillinTea

      Lenny can get away with this look for many more years, simply because hes fucking hot, doesn’t age, and OWNS it. You know when he’s wearing these outfits that he LOVES them. I mean, the dude is almost 50, and still “out-rocks” pretty much anyone in the game. Snaps of Hair Envy!

    • crash1212

      Let Lenny Live.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      I’m seething with jealousy over those pants.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      No one is immune from aging out of mega-jewelry accessorizing and frivolous gewgaws. In large part due to a general aura of greasiness, Depp’s look is well past its sell-by date. And Lenny’s, I’m afraid, is to bumping right up into it.

    • nicky

      I’d just like to see him without his sunglasses once in awhile.

    • formerlyAnon

      If he stays fit he can work a version of this indefinitely, for sure. I think the jewelry is riding the line, here, but I am less tolerant of jewelry than of drapey scarves and fringe, and I don’t think it goes so well with that particular sweater/jacket combo.

      Of course, Mr. Depp’s bits ‘n bobs don’t bother me, so I may not be the one to ask.

    • Sarah

      I think he can because of one thing. He’s a rock star. Case in point: Nobody but NOBODY questions Prince, and for that matter, crusty Steven Tyler either. Depp is a movie star. He should take some accessories off.

    • DilettanteDeconstructed

      He looks better as his character in the Hunger Games movies. Less jingle-jangly and more sleek suits him.

    • Aurumgirl

      Maybe he should just ‘pick one”: either leather, or heels, or geegaws, but not all three, and not in doubles combinations.

      But oh, yeah, he’s still working it better than Johnny.

    • leilah

      This (and other “ensembles”) seems so much like shtick to me; LK comes off like he just hip and cool but not that concerned about appearance (c’mon–your hair can’t ALWAYS look exactly like that … that’s created each day), but his residential/commercial designs are EXTREMELY meticulous and all about clean lines (gawgeous designs and execution).

      • leilah

        Oops–“not that concerned about appearance” BESIDES HEIGHT …

    • mhleta

      Hey, it’s Lenny being Lenny, and I’m cool with whatever he does, but if I’m to quibble I’d say lose the fringe on the shoes and save the pants for laundromat day. They’re like the male equivalent of period pants.

    • KayEmWhy

      Rockers can get away with it longer and he has toned it down a bit.

    • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      Time to start cutting back a little. Then again, I’m not a big Lenny fan.

    • JaCory Deon

      Well, both Lenny and Johnny are aging very, very well and have styles that suit them (or their public personas). That said, it looks less aged imho on Lenny and he can go with this style for years if he wants. It’s so great to see a sexy black male celebrity playing with gender/gender-coded clothes (though it’s more common in the music world than in other fields).

    • Anniebet

      As far as I’m concerned, he can pile on the bits and bobbles until he’s 80. He’s not subject to fashion “rules” ’cause he’s rock and roll, baby!

    • bxbourgie

      Suede boots in August is not the business. Lenny Kravitz wearing whatever he wants and looking damn good in it IS the business. I’ve loved him forever so I can’t answer your question because as far as I’m concerned he can do no wrong. I don’t think he’s trying to gender bend, he just wears whatever he feels like wearing. He’s always been that way.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      It’s still working, (is it EVER) but he may want to consider an expiry date on the look.

    • TigerLaverada

      I’d say he’s good to go until, oh, forever.

    • Synnae

      Apart from those fringe boots (WTF – did he steal those from Zoe?) I actually love the look. Yes he has a very distinctive style but unlike Johnny Depp it is usually very thought out, good high quality well tailored items, never completely over the top and he does look like he washes his clothes.

    • Zaftiguana

      Lenny’s fine for a few reasons. One, he looks 10-15 years younger than Johnny Depp (sorry, Johnny, no one ever said life was fair). Two, he’s always dressed this way and it’s part of his persona since forever. Three, he’s a rockstar. Four, the look was always vintage and has been played off into maturity by other artists since before he started rocking it.

      That being said, toning it down some in the coming years could hurt. But I don’t think he’s going to end up in Gay Windchime Land with Mr. Depp anytime soon.

    • ewes_urn_aim

      And just like that: 20 years of sex appeal down the drain.

      So far, still working for me, but the heels are pushing it just a tad….

    • hellkell

      Is there a portrait in his attic that looks 96? The man does not age.

      It’s still working, but those boots are fug.

    • macwell

      Lenny can and has the right to rock his look for as long as he looks DELICIOUS wearing it. It was an eternity ago, but did anyone knock Jimmy Hendrix for his look? I think Lenny looks great and his look has tailored with age. He’s like a fine DELICIOUS wine that way…;)

      • imakeart

        I thought of Hendrix too, but he was lucky enough to live in a time when one’s talent counted more than one’s wardrobe.

        • insertcleverbit

          And died before he could reach gay windchime status. Who knows what we would have said about Hendrix now if he was like Jagger chillin with is scarves.

    • niki nelson

      And we are looking at his clothes because….?

    • pugluv

      He is so incredibly yummy and sexy that I don’t care how many baubles that he drapes himself with. Lenny at almost 50 is still hot, hot, hot!!!!

    • Matthew Davie

      The heels just scream “I’m insecure about being short” to me. Never got that about Prince either. Both he and Lenny are sex-on-a-stick hot when barefoot and I never quite got their need to look taller.

    • Warrior89

      We see you, Lenny. We see you.

    • PeaceBang

      Lenny. Time to graduate to a new fashion level for grown up menfolk.

    • jmorino08

      This is possibly the least hottest Lenny Kravitz has ever been. He looks puffy and all that green is doing nothing for his complexion. I also hate those boots, heel or no heel. Cinna deserves so much better!

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      Nah. I’m totally digging it.

    • MandyM

      He can pull it off better than Johnny for sure. He doesn’t have to tone anything down.

    • Imasewsure

      Lenny is out there but not as crazy as Depp.. plus Lenny does sexy crazy and JD just does crazy…..

    • Cameron Turner

      Does this guy ever age???

    • SorayaS

      Maybe it’s that he’s a little younger than Depp, he can still pull it off? I think the “rock star” thing goes a long way too- I would never question what Mick Jagger wears but always cringe when RDJ comes out in his “cool kids” get up.

      Is he really short?

      • Amy909

        He’s actually only a year younger than Depp… black don’t crack!!!

        He is short for a guy, around 5’7″. Same height as me actually!

      • MaggieMae

        Good point! I agree, the rock-star look gets a pass for much longer time, perhaps forever.

    • jilly_d

      Personally, I don’t care what he’s wearing; I would still bang that like a screen door in a hurricane.

    • Lady_Scaper

      I should say, when heels first came to Europe it was a men’s fashion accessory. Women wore them later. So Lenny is just going back to heeled boots, roots.

      I do think he can work it for a couple more years, and then tone it down.

    • somebody blonde

      As long as he looks like this, he can keep going. If he actually starts aging, then he’ll have to give it up.

    • Wellworn

      Depp looks so greasy and in need of a fluff and fold. Kravitz looks clean and healthy and fresh and HOT!

    • DCSheehan

      That man is gonna be 80 and still look sexy as hell.

    • xmixiex

      Fine. Wine.

    • halo323

      “Do you think he can reasonably work this look indefinitely?”

      Trick question! Lenny doesn’t age.

    • Joe Schmartin

      Heels for men = j’adore. Here’s hoping Lenny can help bring them a little more into the mainstream. So tired of combing “Large Shoes For Large Women With Large Feet” websites for my size twelves!

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Time to change up the look…I’m getting a Tom Jones vibe off him that’s more than a little unnerving.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      This is more a comment on how sad and floopy Depp has become. The difference between Depp and Kravitz is that Lenny makes an effort to wear clothes that fit and look clean. His choices flatter his body, show taste and style. Depp exudes an aura of “I am a crazy old man who picks his clothes out of the donation bin at the Salvation Army.” If Depp was as fashionable as Kravitz, he too would be able to rock it instead of looking like an elderly gay windchime. The key word here is “elderly.” Lenny looks anything but elderly.

    • Sonja Brisson

      I want the boots-with-fringe for myself!

    • Miss B.

      When I saw “work them heels Lenny” I thought oh, good, another Dorothy Sbornak at the BDSM club! Ha Ha Ha!!!! But, no. He needs to update. Still gorgeous, though!

    • Pterodactyl111

      Bring back mutton chops, Lenny. Make it happen.

    • ItsDicey

      Woof, how did I miss this on Sausage Friday? And yeah, the heels (with fringe?) need to go because they do read feminine and he’s beyond the age to pull it off. The baggy pants look ridiculous, especially with the drag booties. No denying he’s hot as HELL and can rock a lot of looks, but not this one. Time to do some editing on the style front.

    • Fred Vaughn

      Lenny’s waking me the fuck up right here!

    • Carolyn Smrcka

      I think the blazer is what’s sending it out into Whatthefuckville. Tweed? With fringe suede boots and zipper pants?

    • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

      Mercy…just leave that hot man alone..only thing I want to see are fewer clothes on him..I think time will take care of the rest.

    • MaggieMae

      Good question, dear uncles. I may be terribly biased, but I think it’s still working for Mr. Kravitz. When it’s not working, we’ll all know and have an opinion about it!

    • Shibori Girl

      Didn’t even notice the shoes – Woof!

    • jspark

      He’s black… so he won’t age… let him work it to the grave.

    • kimiakay

      Lenny is a beautiful man. This look works for him, for now. Not sure how long it will, but OTOH it would take very little to tone it down. I love the boots, but maybe in a different color?

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      lenny is giving us sly stone here, and working it! we are family…all my little sisters and me…gonna take you higher…

    • Therese Bohn

      For now, fine! And Lenny’s no slouch – he’d make this look good for a long time!

    • Danielle

      Bless. He needs to permanently wear gold eyeliner.

    • Stefanie Mackenziews

      Lenny’s welcome to leave those boots under my bed and wear my slippers any day…ANY day. Damn…I’m having trouble typing this just thinking about Lenny….

    • MARIO BIGGS

      HE LOOKS DAMN HOT TO ME!!! SEXIER THAN EVER!!!
