Sam Shepard lived with Jessica Lange for nearly 30 years and never got married. He had a side gig as a member of Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975. He’s never won an Oscar, but he’s got a Pulitzer.
The man was larger than life—and as his lifestyle became increasingly more flamboyant, so did his personal style. So, in honor of what would’ve been the King’s 80th birthday, today, we’re celebrating by looking back at his many stylish moments.
By now you’ve probably heard the sad news: we’ve lost comedic genius Robin Williams.
His work has spanned multiple generations, genres and mediums—and brought untold joy to the lives of so many—making it impossible to neatly sum up his impact and enduring legacy in just a few words. So we asked some Kempt regulars to share their favorite memories:
Take it from icons like Andy Warhol: sometimes all it takes is the right pair of frames and a leather jacket to turn a soft-spoken kid from Pittsburg into art’s biggest start.
And with the recent news that a trove of Warhol’s digital artwork has just been discovered by the Warhol Institute on old floppy disks—thanks in part to an inquisitive Warhol fan and a group of “retrocomputing” enthusiasts at Carnegie Mellon—we were reminded of just how darn stylish the guy was. (Well, he is a Kempt 100 inductee.) There are striped tees, trenches, slim ties with chore jackets... he might as well have just stepped out of a F/W 2014 lookbook in a few of these shots. In other words: it’s the definition of timeless style.
A little something called the Oscars is finally happening this weekend.
Sure, there will be a lot of focus on the red carpet’s pomp and sharply tailored circumstance, but it’s really about who takes home the golden statues. Which is why we’ve put together this stylish compendium of Oscar glory at its most handsome.
Over the weekend, the Pebble Beach golf course held its annual pro-am tournament featuring a who’s who of bold-faced names in sports and entertainment: John Daly, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady, Jeb Bush, Kenny G... the list goes on.
But the brightest star of the weekend was undoubtedly Clint Eastwood—because he saved a man’s life.
