PHOTOS Benicio Del Toro is ‘Trucker Chic’

I was just complaining that all the Lady Gaga fashion posts were making me feel a little too metrosexual, and then along comes Benicio Del Toro in one of the most kickarse Trucker Hats ever! The real trick to pulling off a trucker hat is to not look like you’re trying to pull off a trucker hat. Congratulation Benicio – you pulled off a trucker hat!

Throw in a Wrangler shirt, blue jeans and a pair of old ragged black boots and you’ve got a guy that has been chased out the back door of many a husband’s trailer! The only giveaway is the neon sign behind him that says “Chateau Marmont,” which I’m guessing isn’t a honky tonk. That’s alright though Benicio – you still pulled it off. Nice touch with the “What’r you pitcher takers doin’ here?” facial expression and kitshickin’ bling ring. All you need to do now is record 300 number one country hits and you could be the next Conway Twitty!

Nah – I suppose that’s impossible.

CLICK HERE to see the actual video, but only if you promise to have sympathy for Bob and his unsavory surrender to the ’80s.

Well now its time to say good-bye to Benicio and his hat.
And they would like to thank you folks fer thinkin’ that he’s phat.
You’re all invited back again to this locality
To have a heapin’ helpin’ of his masculinity

Y’all come back now, y’hear?
