Have you noticed a pattern throughout the “Scarf Star” posts thus far? I don’t mean to be doing this, but with the addition of 2010’s “Despicable Me” (this year’s “Despicable Me 2” is applicable as well,) this will be the third out of four scarves that is stripes! Who knew garments could be type casted as well?!


Nonetheless, in the lovable children’s comedy, starring the voice of Steve Carell, a super villain named Gru (Carell) plots the evil plan to adopt three orphaned girls, Margo, Edith and Agnes (who named these kids?) and use their cookie selling business as way to break into places. What did not go according to Gru’s dastardly plan, however, was the inevitability of him loving his new daughters, who help the evil genius turn things around.

Gru has an interesting body type, to say the least. The bald new dad has an incredibly wide torso, but stick-thin legs that miraculously support his large frame.


Gru is a simple man who styles his odd body type in a monochromatic sort of way. His grey turtleneck rests below his black, zip-up jacket and above his black skinny pants (how trendy Gru!) And when toting around his three girls or a weapon of mass destruction, Gru always dons his black and grey skinny scarf, that playfully whips about as he chases his children (or the minions!).
