The film Suicide Squad did divide opinion when it was released last year, however at the prestigious 2017 Academy Awards recently, it was up for a nomination on ‘Best Makeup and Hairstyling’ which it was later revealed to have won the award for that category.

Alessandro Bertolazzi. Giorgio Gregorini and Christopher Nelson were the winners of this award, with the first two being Italian well-known make-up artists, but between them all they have had many impressive opportunities working on the make-up and hairstyling to cater for the different genres within the film industry.

It had been revealed through the Instagram post below which was taken at the Hair and Makeup Symposium for the film at the Oscars, that part of the inspiration for the creation of the well-known character within the DC universe, the Joker, had come from none other than BIGBANG’s T.O.P!

The rapper’s picture can be seen in the right corner of the post, with his mint slicked back hairstyle serving as a muse of sorts for the portrayal of Jared Leto’s Joker!

Were you surprised to see that T.O.P contributed to the latest Joker’s overall look?
