i know to some of you this may be a bit different than your typical star fashion icon, but gerard way of MCR has become an ever changing fashion cameleon and deserves a thread here on the boards. He constantly is changing his look, and most recently did the 'military look' in a whole new way.
Is Gerard Way, the lead singer of My Chemical Romance, the most stylish man in rock?
And is the video for My Chem's Welcome to the Black Parade the most epic and visually riveting music video in recent memory?
It's no surprise that Way's musical career comprises such a powerful visual element -- he did start out as an animation and graphic artist, after all.
Before bleaching his hair and going all pseudo-military for 2006, raven-haired Way dabbled in the melodramatic world of pasty skin set against blood-red and jet-black backdrops.
The band's gut-wrenchingly phenomenal funereal-dance tribute to Helena was one of the greatest MTV hits of last year and cemented Way's tragi-dramatic is-he-about-to-start-weeping-or-not balls-to-the-wall performance style in the minds of style-fiends everywhere.
As for fashion repercussions (or "Get the Look"), check out the winter coat and suiting rails from European labels like Marlene Birger and Junya Watanabe Comme des Garcons from all sorts of stores like Barneys, Intermix, and Calypso -- brass buttons, military-style epaulets, and battle-ready sharp collars, oh my.
Fashion is having a real "Gerard Way Moment."
(And so am I.)

and i agree. Another band member, Mikey Way is also a secret fashion icon as well, sporting chanel glasses before his recent lasic eye surgery.
yay im so happy you made a thread on him/them. the people who make this kind of music and their girlfriends etc all have such a different style than what's ''in'' and it's really great to finally have it represented.
i just love their style. yes they're rckers, but they're so theatrical! they use MAC cosmetics and mikey loved his chanels! they definately know style. glad there's other on here too that know who im taklkign about and appreciate it. i sorta went out on a limb doing this thread, so im glad guys posted some support!
