True story: when I first glanced through these photos, I thought “Oh, that’s weird that Miley Cyrus is wandering around Paris Fashion Week.” Is it less weird when it’s a pink-haired Jared Leto? Jared attended the Balmain show a few days ago, but these photos are just of Jared wandering around Paris in skinny sweatpants (??) and a poncho. The Daily Mail referred to this as a ‘90s throwback look. Um, NO. I mean, sure, ponchos were in style back in the ‘90s but those leggings are part of the absolutely hideous ‘80s throwback trend. SO FUG.
Jared had been sporting acid-green hair for The Joker in Suicide Squad. They revealed his character photo back in April, and everyone was like … “Ugh, this.” I don’t know if he was filming Suicide Squad throughout the summer, but he definitely still had acid-green hair as late as August. My guess is he bleached the green out and then maybe tried to dye it red and it came out pink. Dudes with pink hair: love it or hate it? I think I have some residual affection for pink hair on dudes, quite honestly. The first time I ever saw a dude rock pink hair was probably Kurt Cobain. And he looked nice with pink hair. So… maybe overall, this is a ‘90s throwback look.
Jared also Instagrammed a shirtless photo, if you’re into that (I am not).
