The multi-talented Jared Leto first caught my attention when he co-starred alongside Claire Danes in the teenage drama series My So-Called Life playing the role of heartthrob Jordan Catalano. Then, he rose to Hollywood superstardom after his unforgettable portrayal of a heroin addict in Requiem for a Dream, the critically-acclaimed film by Darren Aronofsky. It is absolutely one of the best films I have ever seen and even up to now it still gives me goosebumps every time I remember some of its disturbing scenes. 
Nowadays, Jared Leto is better known as the frontman of 30 Seconds to Mars. He has also written songs and directed the band's music videos under the pseudonym Bartholomew Cubbins. 
Lately, I can't help but notice his fabulous transformation from Coachella hippie cool to avant-garde high fashion. Indeed, only a few people can pull-off this look but Jared's sartorial choices have been spot on so far. It takes some serious swagger to make this look organic, believable and effortless. And Jared without a doubt achieves this immaculately!
Indeed, there's no stopping this renaissance man from ruling the world. I wouldn't be surprised if this king of all trades starts making clothes. Frankly, I wouldn't mind spending my hard earned money on his stuff as long as he personally takes my measurements!
