* ''Franchise/TheVampireChronicles'': Lestat insists on being at the very height of fashion wherever he goes. Whether he's in a frock coat, three-piece business suit, BadassCape, or jeans and t-shirt, everything is of the highest quality and selected to convey the image Lestat wants to impart. Interestingly, Lestat seems to have an almost CloudCuckooLander-like attitude towards his wardrobe, veering wildly between disinterested and obsessive. Clothes that he gets dirty will often be shoved in the bottom dresser drawer and never thought of again, while he showers adoring affection for an old woman who knows the story behind the themed cameo-image buttons on the jacket he's wearing. He plays with a RefugeInAudacity approach in ''Blood Canticle'' when he and his latest proteges "invade" a remote Caribbean island: They could easily sneak in through the heavy jungle, or just use their powers and slaughter everyone between them and the information they're seeking, but Lestat instead decides to garb his coterie in the most outlandishly over-the-top outfits in their wardrobes and dazzle their way past the drug lords in residence: The young man with him dresses in a metallic gold three-piece suit, the young woman in a high-hemmed ostrich feather dress not out of place in the Roaring 20's, and himself in a full leather suit described in the book at least a half dozen times, because [[AuthorAppeal he likes it that damn much]].
