Cowell was spotted chanelling a Cruise-esque look at the US X Factor premiere earlier this week. Unbuttoned shirt? Check. Baggy jeans? Yes, but slightly faded. Pointy lace-up shoes? You couldn't miss them. Top Gun-style Aviators? Worn inside and out.
There was also lots of kneeling down with arms wide open, which reminded us of Cruise too.
