Hollywood star Brad Pitt caused a sensation when she walked the red carpet at the German premiere of her new film Bullet train with a knee-length linen skirt.
When asked why he chose to wear a garment widely viewed as gendered in Western culture, Pitt took an iconoclastic stance, telling Variety:
“We’re all going to die, so let’s screw it up.”
Pitt’s keen awareness of the passage of time seems to be inspiring him to make intentional and bold decisions in all aspects of his life, including the clothes he wears. it’s fair to say that I could easily give a master class on crafting stunning fashion statements.
Over the years the Bullet train star has worn countless iconic looks that have been copied by men around the world. Her bold and unique sense of style has had a significant impact on menswear over the last few decades. She has always been clearly free-spirited, fun and eternal.
The skirt was custom made for Pitt by Haans fashion designer Nicholas Mott of ready-to-wear brand Anecho. Whether or not his influence will start a trend for men’s skirts remains to be seen. After all, this is far from the first time Pitt has worn one. He was photographed by Mark Seliger in a selection of sequined minidresses back in 1998, a silent reminder that his androgynous style in fashion is light years ahead of Harry Styles.
Before his acting career took off, Pitt was a model in the late ’80s and early ’90s, appearing in ad campaigns for brands like Levi’s Jeans. However, his foray into acting hardly diminished his love for fashion.
Pitt currently stars as Ladybug in David Leitch’s latest film. He plays an assassin who finds himself in a fight to the death with his arch-enemies on an action-packed train ride from Tokyo to Kyoto.
Bullet train It will be in theaters on August 5, 2022.
