lol! Gackt looks so much older now! didnt that guy used to be like an major idol at one time?

Those are some ugly pants.

Those red pants are something else.

bet gackt is much better-looking without the make-up.

Jessica almost makes up for the other two.

You would think as a desinger he would realize when things don't match.

Love his pants. What people don't realise when looking at 'high' fashion is it takes about 2-3 years for the trends of that years spring or winter catalogue to make it to the 'middle'. By that I mean everyday people who kind of have a fashion sense who wear mid range brands. These mid range brands will mimic the high end fashion brands about 2 years after they release a catalogue.

only tommy hilfiger can wear those red pants and a sport coat together...

@jesse I don't need to have some company tell me what I should be wearing. If you like the clothes that's just fine but I will never wear something because it is in style. I hate that conformist BS.

3 ( +6 / -3 )

my mom always said. if you dont have any thing nice to say..... so I guess the only thing AT ALL that I should type is, Jessica is looking beautiful as always.

0 ( +5 / -5 )

@matthew good for you man! I wasn't tell you that you WILL be wearing this. I simply implied people who wear mid range fashion brands will wear be wearing something similar in about 2 years. Also you are a conformist to non conformity ;)

Gackt looks like he is wearing a codpiece.

Jessica Alba still looks great after recently having a child. She was in the lead role in James Cameron’s critically acclaimed sci-fi series Dark Angel. Great performance.

Hilfilger fashion is the poor mans/wanabe mans Ralph Lauren Polo

@Tamarama: nah, he's just glad to be next to Alba ;)

So the GAP is replaced with Hilfiger in Omotesando? Is there a difference between GAP, Uniqlo, and Hilfiger?

3 ( +3 / -0 )

no matter how many babies Alba popped out she is still a stunner.

2 ( +3 / -2 )

@ Jesse I see what you did there

1 ( +2 / -1 )

You take the one on the left , and the right, I,ll take the one in the middle.!!

This picture brings up an interesting question. Every 4 years at the Olympic Games, the opening ceremony is always a sight to see. America over the years has always looked good out there marching into the stadium. I wonder if Tommy Hilfinger here will be the main designer this year for the National teams attire.

Some countries wear some strange stuff. America's casual style is good for just about anything. You can't go wrong with Tommy Hilfinger.

Lets thank heaven for that! ;)

No, he can't. those pants are ugly now, 5 years ago and 5 years from now. Pants like that shouldn't be seen outside a circus tent. I dare anyone who says different to go out and buy a pair today.

Comedy trousers. I assume the "Looking good" caption is meant ironically?

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Until I read other posts with the pronoun "He" preceding his name, I wasn't sure if Gackt was male or female.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

Guys should NOT wear lipstick! Gackt looks so weird

1 ( +4 / -3 )

You sure that is Jessica Alba? looks nothing like her.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Gackt looks like he's been photoshopped into the pic. And there's a website for Mr Hilfiger - can't paste the name for reasons you'll discover but google "red trouser blog" :)

Lipstick, earrings, looking like drawn on eyebrows... I see how anyone could make the mistake...

he looks like ikko dondaaaaakeeee

I think Tommy Hilfiger must have been gacked when he chose to wear those pants.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Masculine guy on the right isn't he... ffs what's wrong with these girly men?

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Gackt has lots of makeup on and appears to have had a few nips and tucks done on his face.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

haha, all the hating on the pants. Kind makes me like them more than I already do. Although if they made a mens version of albas suit I'd wear that instead of the pants / blazer. Actually knowing me I'd probably just wear her one! hahaha.

She is looking really good! Black and white is always a 'goer'. As for gackt... well.. hes looking a bit too femin.. not that there is anything wrong with that.

I just love the buttons NOT on the jacket, LOL! atrocious!

Jessebaybay - there's quite a bit wrong with that if you're heterosexual.

@horsefella ... not according to gackt lol .. no but really, If a straight man wants to wear make up that's his prerogative, not mine. No point in judging someone for it.

I don't know much about fashionable clothes. Red pants look terrible to me.

GORGEOUS Jessica Alba

The rose between the thorns! On the left you have an old guy with the strangest looking pants I have ever seen and, no socks! In the middle you have one of the most beautiful women in the world today. And, on the right...... um..... what is it? Somebody having a serious gender crisis!

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Tommy looks set for a voyage of adventure and romance....onboard the 'Love Boat' while Gackt is currently out on loan from from Madame Tussaud's....

3 ( +4 / -1 )

What's with all the comments about no socks? He is wearing leather loafers... you don't really need to wear socks. Kind of like sailor shoes... Shall I point out alba isn't wearing socks either HAHA. I'm just messing. But serious.

Japanese people are, on average, much more stylish than Americans.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

I'll probably agree with you oginome.. I have been to the states twice now. Too many sneakers and jeans. But lets be honest here the majority of any country is unstylish. Maybe I just think japan is more stylish cause I spent most of my time in californian cities, where everything is much more laid back... If i had been to new york. Then my perception would probably change greatly. Again though, not saying there weren't any stylish people in LA / San Fran / Vegas / San Diego etc. Japan is just more dense.

Gackt is doing his impression of Little Richard. In the photo, too.

Oh don't get me wrong, they are definitely some stylish people in America, I just think the proportion of stylish people is much higher in Japan. Japan's worst dressed people still tend to top America's worst dressed in my opinion. And if you think the Californian cities are too 'laid back' in terms of dress, then you shouldn't venture out into the Mid West or the South ;) There are alot of fashion disasters in Japan, but Japanese tend to put alot more into their appearance compared to people in other nations, I find. The French, Italians and the Japanese have the best style IMO, and sometimes the English, depending on where in England you go and what trend is currently popular ;)

Yes, but she looks good.

To be honest everything about Gackt in this photo strikes me as awfully queer.

the dude on the right (never herd of him btw) s wearing more makeup than the goddess in the middle.

I understand why the chick (in the middle) is famous. Who are the other two people?

Red green color blind people would want to know what all the fuss is about when reading the comments.

Tommy Hilfiger is a world-famous American designer and Gackt is a Japanese singer and actor. And yet the only one whose fame you 'understood' was the mediocre actress Jessica Alba? If you don't know who they are, go look them up. Tommy Hilfiger is certainly more famous than Alba.

Ogi, throwing on countless expensive brand name goods on doesn't make one stylish. The "fashion" in Japan can be shocking at times. Stripes, polkadots, plaid... all together. Eeek. That said, yep, the crappy jeans and sneaker look can be pretty bad - though what I tend to wear - but in a decent combo.

Just me of does Jessica look scared of the thing on her left? Check out that body language.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Sure, there are some stylish people in the States. But Tommy Hilfiger isn't one of them and it's difficult to see the truly stylish amongst the masses of overweight people wearing the standard US uniform: t-shirt, shorts, white socks and sandals.

I'm not simply talking about the brand name goods, head to toe designer gear is unbelievably tacky and gauche, and thankfully, many Japanese mix and match their designer gear with other items of clothing, resulting in a more interesting look than what you see in places like Ginza for example. I've found that most Japanese people tend to be much more immaculate in how they dress and present their looks compared to Americans, everything very clearly planned, and clearly alot of thought goes into appearance, even when it comes to the loud, clashing looks. Sloppiness in clothing is rare. The casual style than netninja loves so much is seen as ugly by Japanese people.

resulting in a more interesting look

Oh I agree it can be "interesting". My dad, who knows nothing about fashion nor cares about brands was killing himself laughing when he came here. My dad is pretty stylish and people complement me on my dad - as if I had something to do with it. His comments ranged from "The fashion police are much needed here." or "Honestly, are people colour blind here?" to "What on earth were they thinking?'.

Indeed, sloppiness is rare but again, that doesn't make it stylish nor good. Look at what Gkact is wearing. A stripped tie with a stripped shirt. That don't go together. Add in a blue jacket with black pants - and to top it off, a handkerchief that doesn't match the tie, nor the shirt, nor the jacket. As much as I think Tommy's pants are horrible, everything matches and coordinates. Men, learn that striped ties and striped shirts NEVER are good. Sadly, I see that on a daily basis here.

"Gackt looks like he's wearing a codpiece."

Har!

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Make up on men all starts with good intentions (new romantics and Boy George). But a few years down the road, they start looking like Baby Jane. Gackt can already pass for Ikko-san if he had a bouffant wig. I can imagine him looking like Mikawa Kenichi or Mishima Yukio's ex (the one with yellow hair) in a few years time.

And as for Hilfiger - this guy really reminds me of Larry 'shut that door' Grayson. Why on earth would any Asian want to shop at stores where they try and shove all the Asian and non-white staff to the back of the shops in America. Sorry, but not a fan of WASP clothing.

I have to admit I like a few TH things, but as Pukey says, there's something about the whole New England, I-sail-off-the-coast-of-Nantucket-in-summer, Kennedy-loving TH brand that makes you want to slap the living hell out of anyone wearing too much of it.

I guess Gackt likes Cure whose album, Disintegration is almost surreal.

Gackt reminds me of a Japanese David Bowie, but with more makeup and less talent.

Oh of course, there are many fashion disasters in Japan, but the worst dressed people in Japan are still leagues ahead of the worst dressed people in America. The level of style overall, is much higher among the Japanese than the Americans.

Indeed, sloppiness is rare but again, that doesn't make it stylish nor good. Look at what Gkact is wearing. A stripped tie with a stripped shirt. That don't go together.

I never thought Gackt was stylish. Yes, striped ties and striped shirts is complete overkill - but still alot less painful on the eyes compared to what you see in the States.

Gackt is looking more and more like Bruce Jenner,every day
