Is androgynous the new black? Take a look at the Wall Street Journal Fall Fashion issue and you’ll notice a trend — maybe sorta kinda women who are supposed to be models.
I’m assuming the photographer just didn’t apply eye makeup in order to de-emphasize her eyes? Or maybe the WSJ just hired women with more masculine features and accentuated them?
Am I wrong? Why does this woman have a cleft chin?
Am I supposed to attracted adolescent boys now?
Tilda Swinton is the key here; she played Archangel Gabriel in 2005’s Constantine. It’s hard not to think that the Wall Street Journal is trying to push fashion better suited for David Bowie’s gender-bending days with its fall fashion issue.
I love Bowie’s music, but I don’t enjoy looking at him. In short, the Wall Street Journal needs more women who look like … women. Kate Upton would be a good start.
