Olivier Theyskens and Ezra Miller: Separated at Birth?

488

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which opens today, should make one of the film’s co-leads, Ezra Miller, a star. Not that he isn’t one already. The 20-year-old actor appears on the cover of the spring issue of Paper. Inside the magazine, he strikes a variety of intriguing poses clad only in high-end women’s wear: a mesh turtleneck and black leather coat by Alexander Wang, a matronly red dress better suited for the “ladies who lunch” set, shirtless in felted lavender pants by Comme des Garcons  with barettes in his hair. The androgynous, delicately boned Miller inhabits the thread with a natural grace and forthrightness. One designer we’re itching to see him in: Olivier Theyskens. Seriously, look at pictures of the two of them side by side. They might have been separated at birth. Though Miller is next slated to play one of the titular character’s lovers in a filmic adaptation of Madame Bovary, we vote for casting him in a Theyskens biopic. It’s the role he was born to play.
