The first surprise is that Steven Tyler has a wardrobe stylist. But the real shock is to see the rock star posing in W magazine in a Gucci pinstripe suit, of all things. Gone are the scarves, the glasses and the shoulder-dragging hair.
At 52, as his Boston-based band, Aerosmith, is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Tyler is cleaning up. Well, he is actually mixing designer pieces with clothing he has gathered over the years. "My stylist and I went through my closet," he told W. "I started pulling out stuff from the Seventies. She said, 'This stuff is in now but you have the original.'"
