We didn’t think Daniel had it in him to pull off a Dandy look, but … well DAMN. Just look at him:
“Kill Your Darlings” star Daniel Radcliffe covers the November 2013 issue of Flaunt magazine in a velvet suit by Velvet suit by Richard James, shirt by Kit Neale, and silk tie and pocket square by DSquared2. Photographed by Adam Whitehead and styled by Steven Westgarth.
Not just pulling off a lawn-green velvet suit; working the SHIT out of one. We had no idea. Now we’re sad that he tends to look so colorless (if impeccable) on the red carpet most of the time.
Inside, slightly less dandified outfits and smart soundbites:
On playing Allen Ginsberg: “The transformative thing about the role wasn’t playing such a famous character or playing a character that had such a huge influence on society. It was more of trying to find your voice, and finding out who you are. It’s usually an awful and very painful journey, and it has to be—it involves getting heartbroken or failing at something that you want to succeed at. Those are important things to go through, and that was the thing that attracted me to the part.”
On playing a young man in love: “I don’t think there’s any difference between how one falls in love. People express love differently, person to person, but it’s not gender or sexuality related. The only difference it made was obviously the actual sex scene, of course…”
On the political spectrum in the United States: “The thing I’ve learned from spending time in America is that the fatal mistake is to consider it to be one country, or to tar any particular region with one brush. America has such a strong conformist character that the counter culture that arises from it is all the more vibrant—that goes all the way from Ginsberg to Nirvana…actually, ever since the 1920s onwards.”
We kind of wish we could pull off a lawn-green velvet suit now.
