Jared Leto, Fate and Fashion
Have you ever heard the expression "if you love something, set it free and if it comes back to you, then it really is yours"? Well, it seems that the same thing can be said of fashion…well, almost.
Whilst on tour, Jared Leto lost a much loved, unique and very hard to find jacket. It's loss left a significant hole in his fashion foundations. Imagine his surprise then, when he stepped onto the AVMA red carpet to see the MTV New Zealand VJ wearing exactly the same one.
Obsessed with the thought that this was some kind of fate - or fashion-karma in action he kept asking if he might be able to have the jacket to wear during his show. The obliging NZ VJ let him try it on, and as luck would have it, it was a perfect fit! A very chuffed Jarred, then proudly wore the much-loved jacket during his show.
Later on in the evening, when giving an interview in the pressroom, a very moved Jared Leto related the story of the jacket to the amassed journalists. He elaborated on the strange workings of fate, and how kind and touching it was of the VJ to literally give him the jacket off his own back. Jared was very grateful to have the jacket, and made it clear that he would treasure it always, and fondly remember the generosity of the VJ who gave him such a wonderful gift. He also made some jokes about wanting some of the VJ's accessories too.
At the end of the interview, when Jared asked if the were any more questions, the MTV New Zealand VJ stood up in front of the assembled media and said, "Yes. I have a question. Can I have my jacket back please?"
Fate and fashion are very fickle and funny things.
