Former pop superstar and poster-boy for ageing teen-idols Simon Le Bon has taken the bold step of decorating his upper lip with a superb smasher.
The erstwhile Duran Duran singer grew his lip weasel for Movember but then, with the approbation of his good lady wife, decided to keep it, realising that moustaches are for life, not just for November.
Michael “Atters” Attree, moustachioed editor-at-large for The Chap, commented: “My oh my, how this cheesy 80s upper-lip Stilton has matured! Having recently injured his vocal chords, this Wild Boy has come back down to Planet Earth with a banging lip smasher.”
Simon Le Bon’s previous hairy moments include capsizing his yacht, only to be rescued by the Royal Navy – who weren’t sporting facial hair but more vital dinghies. No doubt this is the ingenuous reasoning behind Mr. Le Bon’s stylish lip-flippers. However, with his right lip-fin being a tad more dominant than his left, Mr. le Bon may have difficulty gaining ingress to the hallowed Handlebar Club, should the club be honoured with his application.
