Copycat: Shop River Phoenix
To celebrate what would have been his birthday.
Today would have been River Phoenix's birthday. Collapsing from a cocaine and heroin-induced heart failure outside The Viper Room while Johnny Depp's band played inside, he died too young at just 23. With dreamy, floppy hair, rounded glasses and an obligatory cigarette, the actor/musician was part pretty-boy, part grunge. Not afraid of some floral but usually just in denim and some ratty white shirt, he presented himself with no Hollywood pretension.
