Iron Man Infographic

We're all super pumped about the release of Iron Man 3- so much so that we've been trying to find the perfect outfits to wear to the premiere this Friday! (The midnight showing of course.) We tried to get some fashion inspiration from Mr. Stark himself by asking, "what would Tony wear?" Well, turns out he can't make up his mind either!

Oh, and we still don't know what to wear...
