Menswear Monday : Evan Peters

evan-peters-on-quicksilvers-look-in-x-men-days-of-future-pastYes, it’s Tate. If you watch American Horror Story then you will totally get this post. Over the past four seasons actor Evan Peters has played a multitude of characters all from the anthology series by Ryan Murphy. He’s been a depressed grunge teenager, a suspected serial killer, a frat boy Frankenstein and now in the current Freak Show season, he’s just Jimmy Darling.

One of the reasons I like Evan Peters so much is his impressive dossier of characters in such a short period of time. Completely adapting to the environment and decade almost seems like such an ease.  He’s engaged to Emma Roberts, a fellow cast mate. Also, he doesn’t do many shoots but the ones I’ve seen are pretty badass.

90s Crush : Jason Lee

9ee5926479601900f373ae6458804925

I first fell in love with Jason Lee in the film Mallrats. It’s crazy that I actually remember watching it for the first time in my best friends living room. I think from that moment on we started prefacing everything with “true story”. Jason Lee started out as a pro skateboarder in early 90s famously starring in Spike Jonze’s classic skate film, Video Days for Blind Skateboards. He began landing movie roles and soon left the full time skate world for Hollywood. He’s been a great influence and is making such an impact in both worlds.

Inspiration: Still Frames

Cinemax-Disturbing-Behavior

Disturbing Behavior (1998) 

Apart from music being the most important thing in my life, the vast area of 90s films run a close second. When I think about some of my favorites, I find that still frames from each film pop into my head. In a departure from the usual Sunday inspiration posts, I’ve gathered a selection still frames from some of the movies that helped shape my adolescence.

Movie Crush: The Rules of Attraction

rules of attraction

Now I know I’m breaking the cardinal rule of the site by discussing pop culture after the 90s but what the hell. The Rules of Attraction which came out in 2002 could have easily been released in the 90s. I remember seeing this when I was in college with a whole group of friends. I can safely say that I was incredibly obsessed and ran out to get the book (by Bret Easton Ellis) just a week later.

Shannyn Sossamon, who is one of the standouts of the film is my personal style icon from almost any film. From her asymmetrical haircut, tomboyish attitude, and skateboard girl cool factor she’s pretty much perfect. Also, can’t help but to give James Van Der Beek an honorable mention for his role as sketchy and deviant charater, Sean. Who is a far cry from his standard 90s role of “Dawson Leery” from “Dawson’s Creek”. It’s also impossible to forget Ian Somerhalder as Paul and Victor’s whirlwind trip through Europe.

Young Buzz: Jack Kilmer

1399628785049.cached

This Spring I happened to catch “Palo Alto”, director Gia Coppola’s debut feature film based on James Franco’s book on adolescent life in Northern California. I was instantly drawn to the “Coppola aesthetic”, as it relates so much to what high school was like for me growing up in Washington, DC. It really is a film to put on your list to watch.

Jack Kilmer, who is the son of actor Val Kilmer had a breakthrough role in the film. I think its safe to say that this isn’t the last that we will be hearing from him. His honest portrayal of Teddy reminded so much of the demeanor of guys in my own classes in school. From his grungy attire and all around angst, it really put me right back to being the awkward girl in school doing random things for all sorts of reasons.

He even captured the attention of Hedi Slimane, as he walked in the Saint Laurent mens SS15 show just a few months ago. Whether actor or model he’s got an interesting look that lends to all sorts of genres.

Movie Crush: Before Sunrise

image

This is one of those films that immediately captured me when I watched it the first time. Within 20 minutes it just seemed like the most accurate portrayal of meeting a stranger when traveling. Thankfully, I’ve had few experiences exactly like this one, but there are a few people I’ve met while traveling that have had a dramatic impact on my life.

The film follows an early 90’s Ethan Hawke (which says it all) and French actress Julie Delpy on a train headed to Paris. In Vienna they stop and have an amazing time getting to know each other while discovering a new city. This film also spawned Before Sunset and Before Midnight, which are just as important as this one. This first in the series is just so captivating that you almost have to watch it twice.

90s Crush: Ryan Phillippe

541

I’m taking this time to pay homage to one of my ultimate 90s crushes, Ryan Phillippe. I shouldn’t even talk about him the past tense like he’s not still insanely hot. Only now he has a sleeve and is pushing 40. In the mid 90s there was literally no one who could touch him. From Sebastian in Cruel Intentions, Barry in I Know What You Did Last Summer, and my favorite Shad in Nowhere there was no film where he wasn’t wearing a tank top or soaked in water. And to whoever made that decision, we thank you. So here’s a nice collection of images from his heartthrob days…swoon.
