If you’re feeling a little post-Halloween depression and no amount of fun-sized chocolate bars will cheer you up, here’s something that will: Movember is now upon us! That’s right, Movember – that magical month near the end of each year when mustaches sprout and flourish (or attempt to) on the faces of men everywhere, and bring joy to all who surround them. It’s like combining all the best holidays, plus your birthday, and making it last a full thirty days. It’s that unreal.
But it gets even better. Movember, sometimes called “Novembeard,” is actually a charitable endeavor, raising funds and awareness for cancers that affect men. Participants start with a clean-shaven face on November… erm, Movember 1st, and are sponsored by mustache admirers who want to see what they’ve got, facial-hair-wise. It’s your basic win/win situation.
Since we ladies aren’t physically able to participate in the growing/cultivating aspect of Movember, we thought it would be fun and pretty much necessary to imagine our favorite fashion figures in some legendary celebrity ‘stache styles. Then, with a little photoshop magic, we were able to make these mustache matches a reality. Can you really see Anna Wintour with anything but a pencil-thin mustache? And who would’ve thought a snowy Fu Manchu would seriously flatter Karl Lagerfeld? Take a look at the rest of our picks, and prepare to be mesmerized by some marvelous mustaches.
