Take That star Mark Owen unrecognizable at Cannes

Take That’s Mark Owen looked completely unrecognizable as he walked the red carpet at Cannes.

The singer was with his bandmates Gary Barlow and Howard Donald at the festival, which is also attended by the likes of Hollywood megastar Tom Cruise.

But Mark looked completely different than usual, with his long hair blowing in the breeze and a huge pair of white shades on his face.

The 50-year-old was dashing in white pants suitable for a stroll on the Croisette, and a patterned pink shirt.

He pulled it all off by pairing it with a chic pale blue blazer.

Snaps showed him posing alongside his bandmates, the trio smiling as they soaked up the atmosphere.

Fans were thrilled to see Take That there promoting a film inspired by their rise to fame.

But a few people couldn’t help but point out that Mark looked a little different.

“EXcusE ME MARK OWEN ??????????????” one tweeted.

However, his new look didn’t put fans off, with one calling him “beautiful” and another tweeting, “I like Mark Owen’s shirt.”

Mark has already surprised fans when he started sporting his mustache during the coronavirus pandemic.

The singer showed off his new facial hair during a concert and fans flocked to social media to share their thoughts.

One joked that the new stain made Mark look like “a 70s porn star”.

Another jokingly asked why he looked like a Tiger King extra, and someone else teased that it looked “dodgy”.

The film Greatest Days was inspired by the group’s success and apparently follows five best friends. It is believed to contain music from Take That.

Meanwhile, Tom is in Cannes promoting his highly anticipated Top Gun sequel, Top Gun: Maverick, which will be screened at the French film festival.

The movie about an ace pilot comes out 36 years after the 1986 original and is expected to be a huge hit.
