That was the consentement from French Vogue Tuesday when Brad Pitt walked the red carpet in Berlin for his new movie Bullet Train — in a skirt.
Pitt doffed pants for a brown linen jacket and skirt paired with a pink linen shirt, unbuttoned to reveal a gold pendant. A pair of biker boots showed off the 58-year-old’s shin tattoos; tortoiseshell sunglasses topped off the look.

“By making this genderfluid fashion statement that has already been validated by many male icons,” Vogue gushed in translation, Pitt “is helping push opinions forward. Bravo Brad!”
Fans and fashionistas weighed in online, where opinion was decidedly Mx!
What is even happening? From the neck up, he's Brad Pitt. From the neck down, a homeless woman muttering to herself on the L train. Is this…fashion? https://t.co/GK2JFZbjvL

The craziest thing about Brad Pitt wearing a skirt is that the January 6th committee has presented enough information to charge Trump with treason yet Garland won’t do anything because he’s a GOP agent

The people saying Brad Pitt isn’t wearing a skirt, but a kilt are like nerds saying “that’s not a dragon, it’s a wyvern”.
