Inspired by their covershoot with British musician Elly Jackson (the bulletproof La Roux!), Paper magazine dedicated a few pages of their September issue to menswear – with one catch – all the looks were modelled by women.
Featuring designers Charlotte Ronson and Erin Fetherston, actress Michelle Trachtenberg, model Veronica Webb and many others, the images depict these typically femme females in “scraggly mustaches and sideburns,” suspenders, and everything from scruffy overalls to schoolboy uniforms.
September Issue insanity for ‘On The Town’ shot by Steven Meisel. Grace Coddington doesn’t fail to impress on the styling front, who was paired with Edward Enninful for this garden-themed masterpiece.
