Gender Fuck Thursday

I don’t know why, perhaps it was researching the great Greta last week, but I’ve been in a retro mood lately. Last Thursday we had The Original Gender Fuck Fatale, Marlene Dietrich. But Marlene wasn’t the only lady back in the day who could mess with what is masculine. Let’s face it, women in suits and menswear are hot now, then and forever. Another look back, in wonder.

Thank you for Gender Fuck Thursday. That pic of K Hepburn has caused a seismic rearrangement of my internal world.

I think this is my favourite post of yours ever.

Excellent collection. Lauren Bacall has always been so gorgeous. Not that familiar with Carole Lombard, but I love the picture.

Steph said...

Hepburn looks... wow. Hepburn.

This makes me so, so happy. Really, classic cinema was much more progressive than people give it credit for. :P

I just love the style. Her hat isn't bad enough, actually I've got a similar hat... I am a fashion journalist and I think this blog is one of the best in this category. I really liked what you did.
