Alexander Skarsgård made his most memorable red carpet appearance to date last night when he dressed in drag and posed for photographers at the Diary of a Teenage Girl premiere in San Francisco. Skarsgård gave serious Farrah Fawcett vibes with his feathered wig, and he wore a floor-length gold dress that was cinched at the waist. He posed with Bel Bowley and director Marielle Heller.
It's unclear why Skarsgård decided to dress in drag, but it's suspected his look may have been a nod to his co-star Joshua Grannell, a drag performer named Peaches Christ who plays a transvestite in the film. Skarsgård, who stands tall at 6-foot-4, previously played a transvestite in the 2006 Swedish film Kill Your Darlings.
In Diary of a Teenage Girl, based on Phoebe Gloeckner's graphic novel set in 1976, Skarsgård plays Monroe, a 35-year-old man who is dating Chloe (Kristen Wiig) and later begins an affair with her 15-year-old daughter Minnie (Powley).
The comedy-drama also stars Austin Lyon and Christopher Meloni.
The Sony Pictures Classics film is in limited release beginning Friday.
