A Jason Momoa style diary: Aquaman's fashion sense is totally 'IDGAF', but we're not complaining
*you're meant to focus on the clothes, you're meant to focus on the clothes*
Amber Heard is doing the most on the Aquaman promo tour, being fabulously extra with her Valentino Couture swimcap and tempting us with a Celine nip-slip. Nicole Kidman, too, has been parading her high-fashion credentials and looking every inch a Hollywood superstar in support of the comic-book blockbuster. Hell, actress and Jason Momoa spouse Lisa Bonet has practically become an Alexander McQueen spokesperson because of this film's red carpets, and she's not even in the damn thing. But face facts, ladies: nobody is stealing the leading man's press circuit thunder. We've been waiting ages for more sightings of Game of Thrones's Khal Drogo — RIP — and now have one of DC's most widely ridiculed characters to thank for it.
It's long been received wisdom that attractive people don't have to try. And while we're loathe to perpetuate ugly stereotypes, in the case of Momoa's fashion choices, we're inclined to think it's all true. Working with stylist Jeanne Yang, Momoa manages to make high-maintenance Tom Ford look relaxed. And though you wouldn't guess that he dresses in lots of fashun labels, the man is partial to T-shirts from Rick Owens and Valentino. It's not all serious style, however. People have touted Momoa as the next iconic swashbuckler in the mold of Errol Flynn or Harrison Ford, but we like to think of him more as an Elizabeth Taylor or Vivien Leigh: a star so distractingly pretty, that eccentricity becomes a defense mechanism against pigeonholing. I mean, how else would you explain that... interesting leather hat?
