Brad Pitt stepped out on the carpet in flowing skirt yesterday and, naturally, it blew our minds. The look would define not only Berlin’s Bullet Train premiere but also today’s entire Twitter feed.

The Skirt! The Skirt!

“The breeze, the breeze,” was Brad Pitt’s simple explanation when questioned over his kilt by an Associated Press reporter. (Watch that interaction below.) And it’s hard to deny the star looks breezy. With his tousled, beachy tresses and unflappable grin, Pitt seems truly at ease in the edgy get-up.

He paired the knee-length linen skirt with a brown cardigan and lightweight pink button-down: very summery. Styled\ with oversized sunglasses and long layered necklaces, the look stood out as an especially chill choice for the red carpet. Donning combat boots, Pitt’s calf tattoos were also on full display.

Of course, real Pitt fans know this is not the first time the actor has dabbled in gender-bending fashion. In 1999, Pitt rocked multiple skintight mini-dresses in a glorious photoshoot for Rolling Stone. (See below.) Looking back at that ’90s time capsule — let’s not forget Kurt Cobain, too, wore many dresses — the photos carry a hyper-pop flair that is, simply, so back in style. Their high-contrast surrealism is aped today by so many male stars, most notably, Harry Styles.

Reviving his feminine era now, at age 58, Pitt has (unsurprisingly) divided fans. While Vogue is “obsessed with Brad Pitt’s linen skirt” and CNN ranked it as their “look of the week,” online commenters shared less kind words. But one look at Pitt’s bare legs, his “breezy” smile, and I guarantee you — he could not care less what anyone’s saying.

Brad Pitt’s New Era

A recent profile in GQ, “Brad Pitt Opens Up His Dream World,” the stated that his career is winding down. Speaking to author Ottessa Moshfegh, he said, quite bluntly: “I consider myself on my last leg. This last semester or trimester,” He went on to question what that will look like: “How do I wanna design that?”

For now at least, Pitt’s design includes keeping busy. With Bullet Train making headlines, audiences are gearing up for its worldwide release on August 5. Directed by David Leitch, the film follows the story of a trained killer (Pitt) ordered to find a mysterious briefcase while aboard a bullet train in Japan.

In addition to Bullet Train, Pitt’s production company, Plan B, is slated for a number of big releases: Women TalkingAmericanah, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Another project of his, out from Paramount Pictures, will premiere on Christmas: Babylon.

So it does not exactly seem like he’s slowing down. And yet, in the interview, Pitt expressed deeper desires. “I’m one of those creatures that speaks through art,” he said in the piece. “I just want to always make. If I’m not making, I’m dying in some way.” Stepping back from his usual charming leading-man persona, Pitt provided an existential glimpse at his own insecurities. Speaking to Moshfegh:

“I wanted to ask you, why the f*ck are we here? What’s beyond? Because I gather that you believe in something beyond.… Do you feel trapped here, in this body and in this environment?”
