Fierce Fashion Face-Off: Special Labor Day Edition – Mr. Chris Evans v. Mr. Henry Cavill

C. Evans v. H. Cavill

Picture it.

You awaken groggy in a cold, dark, unfamiliar place.  Your body aches and your head is throbbing so hard, you’re certain it will explode at any moment.  You open your eyes, but your vision is blurry.  Sharp pains gnaw at you as you try and piece together the past events despite your fuzzy memory.  Then, it appears.  A tall dark silhouette at the edge of the room begins to slowly move towards you.  You try to scream but can’t as you now realize you’ve been bound and gagged. Gradually, the figure approaches, brandishing  a rusty chainsaw gleaming underneath a flickering and dimly lit lightbulb. The dark figure forcefully grabs the back of your head and quickly brings the rusty chainsaw to within an inch of your exposed neck.  What is a wee distressed bow tie to do?!?  You need help.  You need to be rescued.  And then… hope.  Suddenly, bursting through a brick wall, Captain America is on the scene while simultaneously, Superman barrels through the roof! Relief? Not quite my bow ties. For only a fate worse than death itself is being rescued by a superhero… with NO FASHION SENSE!

Ugh! Can you imagine?  The ridicule.  The embarrassment.  The stares.  No. It is far better to have the innards of your throat violently ripped out from you than to be rescued by a superhero in bad fashion.  How dreadful!  Well, my bow ties, it looks like there is a very important decision to make. Who should rescue us?  Is it the freshly revamped bodysuit of Superman aka Mr. Henry Cavill or is it the patriotic and rustic look of Captain America aka Mr. Chris Evans? A decision this important require us to dig further into the fashion arsenal of both gentlemen as only then can we truly find our answer. But first, however, we must  lean on the wisdom of a true fashion icon. Someone who has radically influenced and changed the landscape and thought of the fashion world…for the better! Yes, a person whose fashion sense, style and taste reigns supreme. Yep.  My bow ties, that person is one miss Anna Wintour Edna Mode!

Edna Mode is a fashion genius. The written form of her thoughts and words are so holy, they are now what make up the sacred Fashion Bible. When picking the best dressed superhero, follow her words… verbatim.

  1. On pathetic fashion designers trying to explain their sorry fashion to the masses:  Yes, words are useless! Gobble-gobble-gobble-gobble-gobble! Too much of it, darling, too much!
  2. On tacky superhero suits that are done in poor taste: This is a hobo suit, darling. You can’t be seen in this. I won’t allow it. Fifteen years ago, maybe, but now? Feh!
  3. Ms. Mode on designing a suit for a superhero  who comes to save you, but fails and as a result, you get cut up into tiny little pieces and flushed down the toilet: No? Well, he’ll look fabulous anyway.
  4. Explaining the practicality of her new suits: I cut it a little roomy for the free movement, the fabric is comfortable for sensitive skin…  And it can also withstand a temperature of over 1000 degrees. Completely bulletproof… And machine washable, darling. That’s a new feature. 
  5. Ms. Mode on the unique features that she included in her suits that are designed to withstand enormous friction without heating up or wearing out, a useful feature…  I finally created a sturdy material that can disappear completely”  And a suit that“can stretch as far as you can without injuring yourself, and still retain its shape. Virtually indestructible, yet it breathes like Egyptian cotton.”
  6. Ms. Mode on her upcoming superhero signature collection: It will be bold! Dramatic! Heroic!
  7. Ms. Mode on whether a superhero can save you from being stabbed to death by an evil villain: Well, I am sure I don’t know, darling. Luck favors the prepared. 
  8. And finally, Ms. Mode on capes: Metaman, express elevator! Dynaguy, snagged on takeoff! Splashdown, sucked into a vortex! [shouts] No capes!

Well, I guess we know who Edna favors in this fashion battle. But what do you bow ties think?Who do you want to rescue you in that dark, damp unfamiliar room with a crazed killer trying to saw your neck off? Take a look below, study the pictures and decide for yourself! Enjoy 🙂

    Ok, you had me laughing from the start! –> Virtually indestructible, yet it breathes like Egyptian cotton. – omg too funny😂😂
    I hope I never find myself in this situation but if I did I would hope Mr. Evans (sans captain America uniform) would save me. It’s like he got the short end of the stick when they filmed the Avengers, I mean really who would honestly feel threaten by that outfit. Did they run out of money in the budget?! Seriously. Anyhow, Chris Evans all the way for me 😊😊

      LOL! Classic = timeless so I’ll definitely take that 🙂 Finally, Mr. Cavill is getting some love. I must admit, I’m a bit surprised that everyone favors Captain America over Superman!

      Ahh… our first Superman supporter LOL! I must say that new Superman costume is pretty fierce… I’m actually surprised Mr. Cavill didn’t receive more votes. Thanks for your comment 🙂
