Amanda Knox — the Seattle native who was famously tried and acquitted in the murder of her British roommate Meredith Kercher while studying abroad in Perugia, Italy — arrived in Toronto on Friday morning for the Toronto International Film Festival, where the highly anticipated Netflix documentary Amanda Knox is set to premiere. Also making a highly anticipated appearance at TIFF was … Knox’s boyfriend Christopher Robinson’s beard.

Robinson, who was photographed with Knox at the airport, also sported leopard-print pants, giant glasses, and a varsity jacket emblazoned with “Amanda.” He was alternately described as “Riff Raff and Terry Richardson’s son” and “Kevin Federline international edition” by Cut staffers, but all I could do was make this frustrated hand gesture at my computer monitor while crying out, “Amanda, perché???”
