Gender Fuck Thursday: Vintage Edition

How about we class up this joint, eh? And nothing’s classier than a fine-looking lady in menswear. And if that fine-looking lady is from a bygone era, well, all the better. Vintage gender fuck is, let’s be honest, some of the greatest gender fuck. But don’t take my word for it. Let Katharine Hepburn and friends show you.

Katharine Hepburn

The original great panted one.

Josephine Baker

Dapper goals, forever.

Audrey Hepburn

Not everyone can pull off a plaid suit. But, of course, Audrey can.

Maggie Smith

She looks like a 70s politician running for office. I’d totally vote for her.

Frida Kahlo

Impeccable vest game.

Marlene Dietrich

Nobody does gender fuck better. Never has, never will.

Hey, Miz S-- if ever you feel the urge to do some research and write a bio post, you won't go wrong picking Josephine Baker. Besides all her cool civil rights cred, the lady was a spy in WW2, and was holder of three separate French decorations: Croix de Guerre, Rosette de la Resistance, and Chevalier de la Legion d'honneur (Knight of the Legion of Honor).

As for her lesbian cred, Baker had a fling with another lady on your list: Frida Kahlo :D

Always interesting around here! Maggie Smith had some wild hair back then! I'd vote for any of them.
