Back in November we got our first look at actor/singer Jared Leto in character as the crossing-dressing character he will play in the forthcoming film Dallas Buyers Club. Today we get to see Leto on the cover of Candy magazine, the world’s first transversal style magazine. As you may recall, back in October of 2010, actor James Franco got all dolled up to appear on the cover of Candy … but this time, it’s Jared‘s turn. Click below to see Jared‘s Candy cover and see how fabulous he looks as a Candy girl.
We need to get something off our chest, y’all—we’re jealous of Jared Leto. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman has sported everything from spiky mullets to mesh tank tops to bare brows and STILL always manages to look amazing. At this point, it’s just become straight-up unfair, but today, he dropped the mega bomb. He posted an Instagram pic featuring his gorge face on the cover Candy magazine’s summer 2013 issue—completely in drag. The cover, shot by Terry Richardson, features Mr. Leto KILLING. IT. in a cotton candy pink bob with blunt bangs, out-of-this-world lashes, and shiny, crimson lips. The Fashion Spot also posted a high-res image of the cover, and it looks like Jared is wearing a light pink, doily-like top to complete his total girly transformation. LAWDY, we can barely handle this. #WERK … he looks straight-up delicious in his candy-colored ‘do, and we are SO into it. Candy magazine is known from transforming superstars into drag queens (and kings!)—I mean, peep Chloe Sevigny’s incredibly on-point Terry Richardson homage. SO. GOOD.
This is amazing. I love how open Jared Leto is to exploring all sides of his personality. He is never one to shy away from fashion risks and clearly he has no problem playing with gender roles. While I may not be a big fan of his music career, I can honestly say that I’m a big fan of his acting career. I’m really looking forward to see him in Dallas Buyers Club cuz I know he’s going to deliver an excellent performance. I’m also very much looking forward to seeing the photos of Jared from inside this new issue of Candy. There’s no question that Jared Leto is a hot man … but it seems totally unfair that he makes a hot woman as well.
