Talk about a fashion flashback!

Russell Brand was spotted looking very much like how he did during his pre-Katy Perry days when he stepped out in his full Rock of Ages rocker costume on Wednesday, June 1.

The MTV VJ-turned-actor wore a black teased bouffant, a red and white Japanese-esque t-shirt (perhaps a nod to his recent deportation from the Land of the Rising Sun?) and ripped black skinny jeans. Maybe this will usher in a fashion renaissance for ’80s rocker chic?

Russell will star in the Rock of Ages film adaptation as Lonny, the film’s somewhat spastic narrator. The film will also star Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta and superstar Tom Cruise.
