Man or Woman? Fashion's Recurring Obsession With Androgynous Models
Fashion has always played with androgyny, but lately it has taken a provocative step onto center stage. Remember when Balenciaga sent a bevy of androgynous-looking models, including the fierce Jana K., down the Spring '11 runway? Since then, we've seen Lea T. smooching Kate Moss on the Love cover, a major moment for the transsexual model who made her debut as the Givenchy muse. Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring '11 ad features Karolina Kurkova leaning in for a kiss with a beautiful blonde that looks like a girl, but it's delicate-looking male model Andrej Pejic. These models are blurring the lines of sexuality and the fashion industry is loving it. Click on to view more androgynous images, then tell us what you think of fashion's latest sexual revolution.
