Jared Leto attends the European Premiere of “Suicide Squad” at the Odeon Leicester Square in London, England.
Love that Joker.
He is our special little ageless fashion pixie and we wouldn’t have him any other way.
Actually, that’s not quite true. We’d have him without the white socks. We realize that many people looking at this outfit would find the white socks the least of its issues, but we have the exact opposite reaction. Ditch the Michael Jackson look on the feet and this would come together nicely. “Come together” in a very Jared Leto sort of way, that is. Sure, he’s wearing cropped pink pants – but he’s Jared Leto. He’s the Joker. This is all perfectly characteristic for him and somewhat in character for the role he’s promoting. And while we’d never try to pull it off ourselves, we think the green coat is pretty freaking fabulous.
The celebrity men who walk our red carpets tend to default to dressing like financial managers, for no good reason as far as we can tell. There was a rather concerted effort to laugh at this outfit on social media last night, but that just made us kind of sad. Every time a man tries anything remotely interesting or outside the norm in fashion, the first impulse is to point and laugh. We support you, Joker-Jared. Keep wearing crazy shit on the red carpet. Just make sure you don’t lapse into Joker cosplay. This comes about as close as you should get to that.
