Alex Turner has shown off a new look over the weekend, and it's very much dividing opinion.
Images have surfaced of the rocker posing with fans at Lana Del Rey's Lust For Life album party sporting some added facial hair.
See another elated fan shared an image with the Do I Wanna Know? rocker.

However, other images shared on Twitter suggest Turner's beard has been in the works for a while, and has definitely been sported previously in the past.

Unsurprisingly, the rocker's new foliage has prompted some mixed reviews online, with some even drawing comparisons between the Aviation rocker and Richard Hammond.

Meanwhile, Lana Del Rey recently revealed that she formed a band with Alex Turner's Last Shadow Puppets bandmate Miles Kane, but they decided to axe it soon after.
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, she said: "I've done so much with Miles. I think at first me and Miles and some of the guys in The Last Shadow Puppets were working on a side project and had our own band.
"This was December through March. I didn't have a world tour planned and they didn't have anything either cos Alex [Turner] is working on his stuff, but, after listening to the songs, I felt like the songs were probably for Miles' solo stuff."
The period was no doubt around the time Del Rey went for a spot of karaoke with the Last Shadow Puppets duo in February.
