Stephen K. Bannon positioned himself as the godfather of a new American political movement. Now he’s cultivated the aesthetic of a true guru.

Bannon appeared on Fox News's Sunday Morning Futures sporting a new, more laid-back summer look, with flowing gray locks and a Mediterranean tan, as if he'd wandered off the set of a mid-Nineties Coen Brothers movie.

Stephen K. Bannon positioned himself as the godfather of a new American political movement. Now he’s cultivated the aesthetic of a true guru.

Bannon appeared on Fox News’s Sunday Morning Futures sporting a new, more laid-back summer look, with flowing gray locks and a Mediterranean tan, as if he’d wandered off the set of a mid-Nineties Coen Brothers movie.

Cockburn knows it’s rather unfair to judge political figures by their physical appearances — particularly someone like Steve Bannon, who has been scrutinized for wearing two collared shirts at once by podcasters and described as looking like ‘if Nick Offerman drowned’ by comedians. Perhaps it’s barbs like these that prompted Bannon to revisit the sartorial drawing board.

Before he reinvented himself, Bannon had a doppelgänger: Keith Heard, a lobbyist and former Republican Senate staffer. Luckily Twitter was on hand to suggest some more lookalikes who could emulate Bannon if he’s ever in need of a body double.
