There's a pretty spectacular gallery on Buzzfeed right now featuring lots of photos of North Korean despot-slash-dictator Kim Jong Il doing various random things—like looking at fish (above), looking at corn, yelling at corn, looking at cows, and holding a red pail. In most of the photos, Kim is wearing his favorite furry hat. Since he's such a fashion icon, we thought it might be quite cool to "get the despot look." After all, he is super on-trend this season, as faux fur hats are just about everywhere.
