Yea, Nay, Or Eh?: Twin Set
Johnny Depp and Patti Smith are two of the most oft-referenced style icons in the world, so no big surprise that they’d also turn out to be potent influences—on each other. At MoMA’s party for Tim Burton last night, the frequent Burton leading man (in Tom Ford) and the still-punky chanteuse (in what looks like Ann Demeulemeester to us) go for such similar basic-black ensembles, you could almost mistake them for twins. (More easily than you could, say, the actual twins in attendance.) We know they’re each wearing their signature outfits—Johnny loves an open-necked suit look, and Patti’s been rocking the nouveau-Amish thing for some time—but taken together, two might be just too much. What do you think: Is what’s good for the goose good for the gander, or are Smith and Depp angling for roles (a second one, in Johnny’s case) in Burton’s upcoming Alice in Wonderland—Tweedledum and Tweedledee?
