Johnny Depp isn’t picking up his CFDA Fashion Icon Award tonight; like International Award honoree Rei Kawakubo, he’s assigned John Waters (fresh from his cross-country hitchhiking trip) to both present and accept his award on his behalf. To help soothe our stinging disappointment, we’ve assembled a slideshow of Depp’s greatest fashion moments over the years — a daunting but ultimately rewarding task. See his fashion evolve from stone-washed denim in the eighties and mustard-colored suits and grungy leather (and Winona Rider and Kate Moss!) in the nineties to his present day love affair with pocket chains, hats of all kinds, and transition-lens glasses.
