The actor Sebastian Stan is making a quick pivot. Fresh off his Pam & Tommy press tour, he’s onto his Fresh press tour, as in the Sundance-backed cannibalistic thriller rom-com in which he stars opposite Daisy Edgar-Jones. In turn, Stan’s really hitting his formalwear stride—not bad for two-ish months into the year!—and his look at Thursday night’s Los Angeles premiere checked off a few of our current big red-carpet-dressing talking points.
We’ve got the baggy-fit, double-breasted Hermès suit, not unlike his Pam & Tommy costar Seth Rogen’s sumptuous Fear of God fit from a few weeks ago. Check! He’s all aboard the Turtleneck Train, right alongside his fellow MCU-er Tom Holland. Check! And he’s sporting a Grooming Gods-grade crew cut with the sharpest sky-high fade we’ve seen in recent memory. Big check! (Shoutout to his cut by Shane Middleton, with grooming by Jamie Taylor.)
We know what you’re (I’m?) wondering… Is Sebastian Stan sporting a fresh fade because he’s in a movie called Fresh? And the short answer is: no. Admittedly, while that sort of inane commitment might be something to celebrate, he’s been sporting a similar cut for weeks. And while Stan may be a hair chameleon—it’s true, just Google “sebastian stan hair”—he’s long been in favor of an “aerodynamic haircut,” and has dipped back into high fade territory time and time again. Plus, the film’s titular freshness is ultimately presumably, in reference to, well, human flesh and not the follicles that sprout out of it. Then again, either way…snip snip!
