Androgny

There's something about androgynous models that appeals to me. I adore the quirky looks, the unique dress sense, the fact that said androgny highlights a certain feature/character that elevates them from just pretty/beautiful to spectacular. Not to mention the edgy vibe. And I know that androgny has become something of a norm nowadays, however I always have a place for the naturals, be it emphasized for an editorial or as a natural style reflection.

More so, I adore their style, the effortlessly thrown on men's blazer with say a crop tee, man-style cuffed pants, and docs or conversely super-high heels.

Models in question? Irina Lazareanu, Freja Erichsen, Agyness Deyn, Omahyra Mota.

And yes, the gamine look is equally as charming, if not more so. Perfect case in point? Audrey Tautou. How beautiful she is....Or Shannon Sossamon (girl crush alert!). And of course the ultimate, Audrey Hepburn.

There are some androgynous looks that I like, but there are some that are just plain disgusting... But nevertheless it's always fascinating. I saw a fashion shoot in Interview magazine with a man and a woman dressed androgynously, and sometimes you couldn't even tell which was the man and which was the woman. If androgyny is still casual, I like it, but when it gets too strict, I don't like it anymore.
By the way, Freja Erichsen was the female model in the Interview shoot too.
I like Kate Moennig's style very much [The L Word]. That's the kind of androgyny I like. But I always like keeping a feminine edge to it, like for example long hair.

I will just look like a boy if I wear boy clothes :( But I cannot wait for the coco chanel movie to be out!

Anika said...

Ennui, isn't she just? I adore her. Stunning!

Thanks, Carrie :)

Anika said...

Cate, I agree, sometimes it's taken to a point where the girl/boy lose all aspects of sexuality associated with that blurred gender divide line and then its just a hot mess!


And Kate Moenning = adore. Stunner!

Anika said...

Cory, welcome to the blog and thank you :)

Nina, I'm with you 100%. She screams "bad girl", doesn't she? Gotta love her!

Cheers guys, glad to see as much love for these shots as I have :)

Adrogyny makes me drool for Freja. Gawd she's wicked hot. Irina as well. I take alot of inspiration with adrogyny

LJ said...

I love androgeny, with a feminine twist. Or even just wear skinny jeans and a boyfriend blazer and brogues, but with bright red lipstick. These photos make me want to chop my hair off again!!
