Gender Fuck Thursday

There is no one way to properly gender fuck. In fact, it’s the variation that makes it so terribly delicious. Who says you need to wear a tie? Or a jacket? Or even pants? Wait, I think I’m getting off track here. What it’s really all about is owning your look and looking damn good no matter what you’re wearing. Sure, we can’t all look as flawless as Katharine Hepburn in a full suit and hat. But these ladies sure do their part fucking with gender in their own special way.

Billie Piper in suspenders
Winona Ryder in a smoking jacket
Evan Rachel Wood in a uniform
Zhang Ziyi in an Annie Hall
Pink in a vest
Melanie Laurent in no jacket
Piper Perabo in no tie
Drew Barrymore in no shirt
Sofia Coppola in an untied tie
Julie Andrews in a neatly tied tie
Gemma Arterton in a tuxedo
Keeley Hawes & Rachael Stirling in full tux, tails & top hat

Ah, yes, variety is truly the spice of gender fuck.

This was a great entry! I had to comment because I just watched Lost and Delirious (where the picture of Piper Perabo is from) last night. It's like you're reading my mind, dear. :)

Made my day again Ms. Snarker, thanks. That Julie Andrews pic, where's that one from? I know Victor/Victoria by heart, so it isn't that one. Is there another genderbender-y film she made? (Please, do say yes).

It's nearly forty years ago but nobody does it like Bianca Jagger http://www.vam.ac.uk/images/image/60789-large.jpg

I agree with dearg.

And OF COURSE Julie Andrews has a neatly tied tie. I'm convinced that Carol Burnett and Julie Andrews were an item. My proof:
