Thanks for the pictures, Eire. It's great to have someone posting young pictures of River, because I have to admit I usually just post pics of him ages 20-23! Thanks xx

^^He was his most beautiful in that movie. But I'm biased because I just LOVE TO DEATH that performance he gives as Mike.

That's my favorite River role/look, too. He was so beautiful and heartbreaking as Mike Waters. The campfire scene gets me every time, and it's only more impressive the more you find out about how deeply involved he was in creating/writing the scene, and contributing to Mike's characterization in general. To do what he did with that role took a lot of courage and a lot of heart, a combination of qualities that is partly what I love about River as both an actor, and a person.... Aww, River.

Thank you Eire!

You can almost sense from the photos that he didn't enjoy that part of being a celebrity (being styled and being told to pose for portraits) but he was so gosh darn naturally good looking the photos never seem flawed.

^ I remember reading an interview with River in which he basically uttered that sentiment, La Bordelique. He said he was embarrassed that he had ever been in magazines like Teen Beat, and that he thought the way they made him pose with his shirt off and suck in his cheeks and pout his lips was gross. I've got to agree.

I just watch MOPI and wonder about all the beautiful, wonderful incarnations of River as a mature actors that never happened... I wish they had.

River Phoenix

No antidote to the neon-and-Velcro-addled '80s quite like a T-shirt, a pair of jeans, and a good head of hair. The hippie-bred River Phoenix once recalled for The New York Times his earliest sartorial memories—"Rich kids gave us their old clothes, which were the best clothes we ever had"—and he never strayed too far from that threadbare, thrift-store path. Of course, he could dress for the occasion: his 1989 stroll down Oscar's red carpet wearing a fitted tuxedo and a pixieish young Martha Plimpton on his arm was a lesson in offhanded panache. But it was River in round wire-rimmed glasses, River with a stray lock of long matted hair falling across his face, River partying for PETA in an army-surplus fatigue jacket and anti-fur pin that paved the way for the moody grunge to come—like a Ziggy Stardust for the '90s, come to spread word of a better, cooler way before rocketing back up to the stars.

^ I'm so glad they mentioned the lock of hair I've loved that lock since I was like 8 years old! Lol! Fantastic article. I'm sure River wouldn't have given a damn about being considered a fashion icon ( although of course he would probs have appreciated the sentiment), but it's still great to see the media remembering him in anyway way that isn't just, " That young good looking boy who died."

xx

I absolutely ADORED when he had long blond hair... he didn't even need to make an effort to look cool.

Proof: when he dressed in a t-shirt and jeans at a Batman movie premiere.
