Drop that razor, guys: The mustache is back. It's replaced designer stubble as well as that ponytail of the '90s, the goatee. While Johnny Depp, Mets catcher Mike Piazza (with his Fu Manchu special) and rocker Chris Cornell, ex-band member of Soundgarden, have now sported follicles above the upper lip, the real culprit for sparking this 2000 trend, according to the Wall Street Journal's front-page investigation into the topic, is the hot Ukranian coverboy and model Eugene Hutz, 25. Hutz recently sparked applause when he hit New York runways -- not for his clothing outfit, but for his droopy cookie duster. Tom Selleck, this could be your lucky day.
