Beautifully Grotesque

As promised, here is the first installment of a little style series inspired by memorable Johnny Depp roles. Depp is known for his edgy nonchalance, his intriguing, dark beauty…his unassuming swagger. Whether its a curious boy with scissors for hands, a swashbuckling pirate, or an overzealous candy factory owner, Depp manages to bring humanity, charm, and style to every character.

So, what better way to start off the official Halloween season (which I’m totally stoked about, by the way) than with the movie that inspired this style series…

Tim Burton style

Depp’s Sweeney Todd look is old England meets rock’n’roll…as only Burton and Depp could do it. The denim/leather combo is spot on for Fall 09, as are the lace-up boots. In the film, Todd also wears this incredible denim waterfall jacket I can’t stop thinking about. I guess the quest begins for my Sweeney Todd jacket…
