CAN TOM HARDY FILL MEL GIBSON’S BOOTS AS MAD MAX?
Everything old is new again. Tom Hardy (above right) is hot and sexy in his reincarnated role in the new “Mad Max,” and he certainly compares favorably to the original star Mel Gibson in his prime. But will the new movie have the fashion impact of the original? The ragged, post-apocalyptic look of the original 1979 film with its abundance of twisted metal, feathers, and leather, was an inspiration to designers and club kids in the fashion world. It took the punk look one step further. Mel Gibson’s Max will be hard to beat.
