How to dress like Johnny Depp



Johnny Depp, for me, is one of the most influential style icons when it comes to men’s clothing. Such a style makes me think why I don’t see more of it when I’m out and about. The truth is, when I walk down the road, its either jeans and a t-shirt or a track-suite, both of which are perfectly fine; if you’re comfortable with the way you look and feel…that’s great!

But who’s to say men shouldn’t be able to make a statement with their clothing? It’s true, dressing as unique as Johnny Depp on a day-to-day basis (without being a world class actor) might look a tad out of place. Popping down to Sainsbury’s wearing ripped jeans, a dark brown waistcoat, bangles half the way up your arm and a hat, I can understand if that’s too much.

However, likewise to women’s fashion, we can take little snippets from a flamboyant way of dressing and make it our own. Here’s just a few ways of doing so…


A common aspect of this style is layering up the textures. This picture shows a suede fronted waistcoat and what looks to be a regular leather back. Leather also seem to be an easy option for creating difference in and outfit. A cotton shirt underneath a jacket or waistcoat like this is perfect! A long as it doesn’t look like your bog-standard work shirt with a big collar, you’re on you’re way. Johnny wears small collared shirts a lot and tends to roll the sleeves up. This looks extremely flattering. If you’re not a fan of short sleeves, a long sleeved shirt rolled up to three quarter length also gives the same ‘messy’ look. Experiment with different textures, it all depends on how Deppified you want to go; I’d say the look above is pretty neutral…not too out there.


There’s no doubt about it, most men have an ignorance to wearing jewelleryBut look at it!!! You have to trust in that fact that Johnny looks so cool with bangles, bracelets and necklaces. You might even think you can’t pull it off, but give it a go, as long as it’s with the right clothes it’s all fine.

Beads, leather string, and silvers. Anything you see in those quaint little shops on holidays, hippie shops, basically make it look like you’re well travelled ;D. Wearing jewellery with fairly basic clothing such as this baggy gypsy top (roll up those sleeves to give the illusion of less fabric) means you don’t look to much. You don’t need six different necklaces if you don’t want to, just one or two will do.


To sum up the jeans: ripped, acid washed, denim. Usually baggy and frayed at the ankles, not like the skinny fit we see these days. Again, try keeping the top minimalistic if you’re not wanting to go all out, but if you are… patterned tops can be really effective, shirts with a double denim effect like the one above with pockets and such.

Other accessories

Now this is where you can really experiment. Lets take a white t-shirt and blue ripped jeans. Simplistic.

Add a wide rimmed hat (stick some feathers in it if you’re feeling it) generally more worn in hats of black or brown, fabric or leather look best. A lightweight scarf just to wrap around can distract from any undone buttons and add to the effect of the necklaces. Lastly, who can forget the old faithful glasses? You’re look won’t be complete without them, any weather can require the need of glasses, so don’t feel stupid about wearing them. dark shades, coloured shades or if you actually need prescribed glasses, go for some brown rimmed roundish shaped ones.

When styling this look, all you need to remember is to buy things that don’t look brand spanking new, buy rips, worn in, almost grungy/ bohemian.

In the end, you just have to be confident in what you’re wearing. Imagine seeing someone wearing the picture above in a shop. If they were clearly unconfident and uncomfortable, they would bring more attention to themselves than someone who looked quietly confident.


Tina Turner’s Cause of Death Revealed




More details on Tina Turner’s passing have come to light.

One day after the legendary performer died at the age of 83, her cause of death has been attributed to natural causes, her representatives confirmed to Her publicist also told NBC News her death came after a long illness.

E! News has reached out to her manager for comment but hasn’t heard back.

On May 24, her team shared that she passed away at her home in Switzerland.

“With her music and her boundless passion for life, she enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow,” a statement posted to her social media pages read. “Today we say goodbye to a dear friend who leaves us all her greatest work: her music. All our heartfelt compassion goes out to her family. Tina, we will miss you dearly.”

During the latter years of her life, the “Proud Mary” artist opened up about battling several health issues, including high blood pressure, vertigo, a stroke, intestinal cancer and kidney failure.

In her 2021 documentary, Tina, the singer also shared she experienced post-traumatic stress disorder as a result from her tumultuous marriage to her ex Ike Turner.

“I’ve been on such a wild roller-coaster in the four years since my wedding,” Turner—who wed music executive Erwin Bach in 2013—wrote in her memoir, My Love Story, per Today, “that even I have difficulty keeping my medical catastrophes straight.”

Turner’s passing came just five months after the death of her and Ike’s son Ronnie and nearly five years after her son Craig passed away.

Tina Turner's Cause of Death Revealed

Her death sent shockwaves through Hollywood, with many celebrities speak out about the influence her achievements had on the industry.

“Through her courage in telling her story, her commitment to stay the course in her life, no matter the sacrifice, and her determination to carve out a space in rock and roll for herself and for others who look like her,” Angela Bassett, who played the legend in the 1993 biopic What’s Love Got to Do With It, said in a statement. “Tina Turner showed others who lived in fear what a beautiful future filled with love, compassion, and freedom should look like.”

As the actress—who won a Golden Globe for her role—noted, it was an honor knowing the icon on a personal level.

“Her final words to me, for me, were ‘You never mimicked me. Instead, you reached deep into your soul, found your inner Tina, and showed her to the world,’” she added. “I shall hold these words close to my heart for the rest of my days.”

Tina Turner survived an abusive relationship with Ike and death of two sons




Tina Turner escaped an abusive relationship to find true love with her second husband, Erwin Bach.

The singer, who passed away aged 83 on Wednesday following an unspecified illness, was in a relationship with the record executive for 38 years. The pair married in 2013.

Tina had publicly praised Erwin for helping her find happiness after fleeing from her first marriage to husband, Ike Turner, which was plagued with physical and emotional abuse.

Ike first met Tina when she was a vulnerable teenager named Annie Mae Bullock. He renamed her Tina, and went on to form the musical duo, Ike & Tina Turner. According to Tina, he micromanaged her career, withheld her finances and beat her while she was pregnant.

After filing for divorce in 1978, Tina was left in debt and had her children to support. She went on to establish a successful solo career.

The songstress met Erwin in 1985 when he was working as an executive with EMI. The pair had an instant connection the moment they met, when he arrived to collect her from Düsseldorf airport.

She said Erwin had taught her how “to love without giving up who I am”, and that he had never been intimidated by her fame or success. He even donated a kidney to her in April 2017, which saved her life.

Writing in her book, Happiness Becomes You: A Guide to Changing Your Life for Good, Tina said: “Falling in love with my husband, Erwin, was another exercise in leaving my comfort zone, of being open to the unexpected gifts that life has to offer.

“The day I first met Erwin, at an airport in Germany, I should have been too tired from my flight, too preoccupied with thoughts of my concert tour. But I did notice him, and I instantly felt an emotional connection.

“Even then, I could have ignored what I felt — I could have listened to the ghost voices in my head telling me that I didn’t look good that day, or that I shouldn’t be thinking about romance because it never ends well. Instead, I listened to my heart.”

Tina’s spokesman confirmed she died “peacefully” at home and added: “With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model. With her music and her inexhaustible vitality, Tina Turner thrilled millions of fans and inspired many artists of subsequent generations.”

Tina Turner: legendary rock’n’roll singer dies aged 83




Tina Turner, the pioneering rock’n’roll star who became a pop behemoth in the 1980s, has died aged age of 83 after a long illness, her publicist has told the PA news agency.
Turner affirmed and amplified Black women’s formative stake in rock’n’roll, defining that era of music to the extent that Mick Jagger admitted to taking inspiration from her high-kicking, energetic live performances for his stage persona. After two decades of working with her abusive husband, Ike Turner, she struck out alone and – after a few false starts – became one of the defining pop icons of the 1980s with the album Private Dancer. Her life was chronicled in three memoirs, a biopic, a jukebox musical, and in 2021, the acclaimed documentary film, Tina.

“Turner’s musical character has always been a charged combination of mystery as well as light, melancholy mixed with a ferocious vitality that often flirted with danger,” scholar Daphne A Brooks wrote for the Guardian in 2018.
Turner was born Anna Mae Bullock on 26 November 1939 and raised in Nutbush, Tennessee, where she recalled picking cotton with her family as a child. She sang in the tiny town’s church choir, and as a teenager talked – or rather, sang – her way into Ike’s band in St Louis: he had declined her request to join until he heard her seize the microphone during a Kings of Rhythm performance for a rendition of BB King’s You Know I Love You.
She had suffered ill health in recent years, being diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016 and having a kidney transplant in 2017.
