Romeo & Juliet Survive
Star-crossed lover was a good look on Leo. Before amassing superstardom as every tween’s boho heartthrob as Jack Dawson, he perfected the role of ill-fated love interest in arguably history’s most famous and tragic teen saga, Romeo and Juliet. In the decade and a half since Baz Luhrmann released his campy take on the Shakespeare classic, Leo has abandoned his boyish looks and wispy locks (remarkably costar Paul Rudd looks exactly the same), but the release of Wildfox’s Fall 2012 Lookbook begs the question, what if Leo’s Romeo never bid his life or unbuttoned Hawaiian shirts adieu? Meticulously styled and uncannily representative of the 1996 film, Wildfox examines what might have been, Leo lookalike and all.
“Fall 2012 is based on this alternate version of the Star Crossed lovers, the Capulets and Montagues; best friends who got away! A road trip through Italy, a 90’s extravaganza of Italian inspired clothing, a dream of roses and Cherubs, emerald green, gold, pink, turtlenecks, and giant, romantic plaid dresses! Would R&J have lasted over time? Or would they have realized, inevitably, that it was just a fling and their teens are meant for road trips, stories, late nights, skinny dipping, strip poker, falling in love with everyone you meet, and most importantly best friends forever, getting over breakups and learning all about what makes you happy!” – Wildfox, Manufactured in Los Angeles.
