Freddy Krueger is HOT!

103916__freddy_lYou knew he was witty, urbane, and charming, but who knew that sharp-fingered Freddy Krueger (far left) was a fashion icon as well? Check out the familiar sweater sported by Hayden Christensen (second from left), photographed over the weekend on the Shreveport, La., set of Factory Girl. Spotted the next day wearing a suspiciously similar sweater (center) was Christensen’s Factory costar Sienna Miller (who — we know! — looks an awful lot like his girlfriend, Lola Skye ). Heath Ledger (second from right) was photographed Sunday wearing similar stripes while brunching at a Los Angeles hotel. Even Claudia Schiffer (right), seen in London in October, was rocking a Krueger-like look. Let’s just hope Hayden, Sienna, Heath, and Claudia don’t all show up at some party all wearing the same set of stripes; that would really be a nightmare on Elm Street.

    Feh, I’d be worried if they started dressing like John Wayne Gacy, Ed Gein or Dahmer. Them dudes were in real life so that makes them really scary.
    On the other hand, Freddie was never that scary. The good news is that there are few fashionable movie psychos (that Shatner mask from Halloween is sooo blase and I wouldn’t be caught dead in that get up the Scream guy wears). So don’t worry! That is, unless we see celebs start wearing Darth Vader helments or “Alien” costumes…

    When I first saw the headline, I thought yet another sequel was in the works. Thank goodness it was about striped sweaters.

    Which also might explain why Hayden’s pants look half-off….

    i don’t know about anyone else, but i found this to be very funny. i’m still giggling to myself. i think it’s the “Freddy Krueger is HOT!” tag.

    Well it could be worse, “The Blues Clues” rugby could be in style.

    That would be cool if they all showed up wearing the same sweater! They could become a pop band called “The Freddy Kruegers”!!!!

    VML, props for an awesome idea! In Sacramento, there’s a rock band that wears all shirts from old Star Trek and call themselves Warp 11. Given the cult following Freddie built up, it would be PHAT if someone put together a Nightmare on Elm Street tribute band.

    Scroll down the Popwatch page to see two members of Franz Ferdinand get in on the trend too!

    ep sato, are you kidding? Freddie was never that scary? Man, he scared the bejesus out of me when I was younger. Just the THOUGHT of the sound of his blades running across a metal pipe….*shudder*
    P.S. This is a great post, Gary, this is what this blog should be like every day!

    Ep, Dream Child would be a better name(aka: NOES 4). The Freddie Krugers? Too 1962ish.

    In the pic for the January 30th post “headscratcher no. 25: cool britannia”, two members of Franz Ferdinand are also rockin’ the Freddy look.
