Style Icon: Bob Dylan

In my opinion, the best looking men are the ones who look like they don't really care how they look. I bet a lot of those men do care and that's why they look so great, but they don't look like they're trying too hard. I like my men a little scruffy. Hence my husband's beard.

Anyway, this post is about Bob Dylan. Bob Dylan doesn't really care about how he looks because he's creating great art, and he ends up looking really amazing. 

Really amazing. I would wear that whole outfit. Messy hair, black coat, nice little scarf. Oh yes, I would wear that outfit.

I would also wear the above outfit -- collared shirt and big jacket. Then I'd look up at someone pensively on a snowy street.

Have you seen "I'm Not There" -- the movie where a whole bunch of actors play Bob Dylan throughout his life? It's so good, and Cate Blanchett plays the above Bob Dylan, and she should have won the Oscar for it. An Oscar, I say. 

I love the '60s. Why was everyone so fabulous in the '60s? You look at singers today, and they lack both soul and style. Sorry to sound old and crotchety, but it's true. I mean, I love glitter and the vapidness of pop radio sometimes, but we sure don't have a modern day Dylan hanging out on Top 40, do we?

Oh my gosh. I am so with you there on Bobby Zimmerman. He really is the one, isn't he? And Cate Blanchett playing Bob. Hello! Wasn't she amazing? Oh Dylan...tangled up in powder blue with polka dots!

I couldn't agree more. I had Dylan hair today and I'll try it again tomorrow - bot because it just turned out that way but because I love that vibe.

So true. Now they all have a team of stylists and not one that truly stands out amongst them.
