Oh fashion week, we can always count on you to supply us with style inspiration, WTF outfits, and a plethora of male models who seem truly confused as to where they are and what they are doing and why exactly they are not wearing any pants. This guy from the Mark McNairy runway show, for example, seems to be taking a page from the “walk of shame” school of fashion, complete with a half-empty beer. [Style]
We introduced you to model Casey Legler before — she’s the gorgeous former Olympic swimmer who’s signed as a male model with Ford Models, and has been forging a successful fashion career ever since. In the video above, she talks to a couple of bewildered CNN anchors about being discovered by photographer Cass McCombs.
“I really was in love with tutus,” says Casey. “Wow,” gasps the female anchor, as Casey admits that despite her short-cropped hair and tomboy clothing, she still occasionally enjoys a tutu. Casey further blows her mind by telling her that “this, in the fashion world is just an example of what’s happening in a larger sphere.” Indeed! [SheWired]
VMAN magazine enlisted photographer Irina Werning to shoot several high profile male models recreating photos they took when they were children. The shots run alongside the original childhood photos.

According to New York magazine, the male version of bimbos, himbos, are the new high-fashion trend. Chanel’s taste maker, Karl Lagerfeld, says the must-have accessory in ads are prop boy toys. Just check out his own luvah Baptiste Giabiconi, pictured here, being strung along by Jerry Hall. And on her other arm, she’s got that glamorous white Chanel bracelet— outfit complete! Of his angle, Mr. Lagerfeld told WWD:
“It’s very simple. They put the girls in a more lifestyle situation. Lonely girls can be a little sad in a fashion story. They dress not only for other girls, but also to please men. The popularity is sudden because there are a few new faces.”
Yes, bring on the fresh hot dudes! Hey, I’m a feminist, but I’m also egalitarian. I have to admit, I’m kind of excited about this objectification of men (as you might have been able to tell by the underwear models slideshow). And now high-end designers are telling me I’m not alone. Is this trend a sign that women are finally earning their market share by having their half-naked mantasies photographed? Feast your eyes on more of this tasty man-candy trend, after the jump! Keep reading »
