Johnny Depp may not have taken home any acting awards this year (he did get nominated, somewhat generously, for roles in both Alice in Wonderland and The Tourist), but his losing streak ends 15 of march 2011. As Pop Candy reports, the Headwear Association — apparently a real, century-old organization — has named Depp Hat Person of the Year. And while we still have some quibbles with the Academy’s picks this year, we think the Headwear folks made a great choice.
In fact, so enamored are we with Depp’s on- and off-screen hat choices that we’ve decided to devote an entire installment of our series In Praise of Demented Fashion Icons to the only star in Hollywood who can make homeless chic work on the red carpet. Meanwhile, we’re pretty sure his scarves could also support a post of their own.
Indiana Jones and the Scruffy Goatee.
This one is a bit more Death of a Salesman.
What is that hat made of? How’s it staying on his head? Ask not these questions of Johnny Depp
On anyone else? Insufferable fake beatnik schtick. On Johnny Depp? Just fine :D
Not the coolest hat ever, but fun fact: Depp was part owner of L.A.’s Viper Room until 2004.
Depp as Willy Wonka
Lookin’ a little bit like a golf caddy in this photo from Vanity Fair. Not in a bad way.
Thanks Johnny – you are best *
