Pretty testosterone is back in style, don’t let nobody tell you otherwise.
April 24, 2013 at 4:26 pm
Some men do an excellent job with pretty testosterone. i agree.

he pulls it off beautifully! :)

Never heard that term before. Very well done. Pretty testosterone. Why not?
May 4, 2013 at 7:20 pm
Hm, I don’t like the term “pretty testosterone.” It assumes he’s a hetero man who simply chose to dress in an effeminate matter for the sake of fashion. It sort of misses the point – or at least the possibility that he’s gay when you categorize his self-expression as part of a larger trend.
May 14, 2013 at 7:40 pm
Does that mean gay guys don’t have testosterone? You can be gay and pretty and still have testosterone! I like the term!

its plain stupid but funny too
April 24, 2013 at 4:17 pm
Not usual, but I feel accustomed.
Another beautiful shot!
April 26, 2013 at 5:00 pm
SUCH A COOL SHOT!

Such a FREAKING cool laid back outfit! I like!
April 24, 2013 at 4:46 pm
There is the cover of your next book. Done.
April 24, 2013 at 4:49 pm
Unique, irreverent and fearless. I love everything about this photo.
April 24, 2013 at 6:40 pm
or possibly silly, vain and irrelevant.
Come on, “Fearless” is more fitting for firemen and those others who live in thr face of real peril and hardship than for someone ‘fearless’ enough to wear pink trousers and clownish make-up.
Still – another good photo, and I didn’t mean to be rude Joana!

In some neighborhoods dressing and looking this way could literally be dangerous to his health.

Thank you! Agree with you, Scott. I could never dismiss someone who has the COURAGE to be TRUE to himself/herself. Stacy London, on What Not to Wear, once said, “bravery is being scared of something – and doing it anyway.” That line jumped out at me, even if she WAS only talking about wearing a print for god’s sake …. the line itself stuck with me. She has a knack for popping out these gems.
This young man, who clearly identifies on a deep level with appearing feminine, is definitely fearless.
April 26, 2013 at 10:24 am
e.g. in most places in Poland ^^’
April 24, 2013 at 10:20 pm
Nick if only you knew the story behind this person you’d think twice about judging whats fearless…I’m his sister and believe me FEARLESS fits him very well…
April 25, 2013 at 2:45 pm
Hi Giselle, you are very kind to Nick. I would have been very, very rude.
I write this comment after I made my comment yesterday, later in this list. I am still trying to hold back myself to be very, very rude.
Thank you for your comment and greetings from my beautiful Amsterdam.

Fearless and hardship are words that both have a myriad of meanings. A firefighter and this young man can both be fearless, they are not mutually exclusive. There are all kinds of hardship, be it economic, physical, social, etc. We should broaden our concept of these terms and set aside our shallow notions of the level to which one person experiences something over the next. On another note, he looks beautiful in these colors.
April 25, 2013 at 5:04 pm
There are many different types of fearless acts. Yes, firefighters are brave – granted. However, I think the rather innocent point being made here is that this young man’s fashion sense is fearless. Indeed, dressing this way takes a lot of courage. If he wore this outfit in many neighborhoods, his personal safety would certainly be at risk. Furthermore, what makes you think he would not run into a burning building to save someone? Or perhaps he has faced many struggles in his life fearlessly. We know nothing about him other than that he looks bloody fantastic in that outfit.
April 26, 2013 at 8:08 pm
There is truth in what you say, Nick. Firemen, War Corespondents, soldiers, people who live with certain disabilities, all have amazing courage. But, there is more then one sort of courage. His is courage too. But admittedly of a lesser sort then the aforementioned. Being true to yourself does take guts, and it enriches the world. In most neighborhoods this guy encounters, he will certainly NOT be in any danger, and we all know it. And probably his courage comes partially from being young and silly. A lot of courage does. But it is STILL courage.
April 24, 2013 at 4:51 pm
the outfit is whatever but that face is everything!
May 8, 2013 at 2:14 pm
well said!totally agree!

I love the color of the pants and the nailpolish. Love the colorful outfits :)
April 24, 2013 at 5:15 pm
Love it what a great shot and such a pretty face.
April 24, 2013 at 5:16 pm
April 24, 2013 at 5:24 pm
Love the eyebrows/hairline combination! I’d love to have this polish.
April 24, 2013 at 5:31 pm
Nicely defined eyebrows. (Envy !)
April 24, 2013 at 6:06 pm
Great guy! If I had met him I would have given him a big smile.
Greetings from Amsterdam.
April 24, 2013 at 8:03 pm
I happen to know him and he is a great guy with and awesome fashion sense
April 24, 2013 at 9:16 pm
That is awesome. Love to hear it! I in fact love his sweater
April 24, 2013 at 6:18 pm
Very nice style :) always LOVE your pics x check my fashion blog ;-)
April 24, 2013 at 6:43 pm
Thanks for posting this … I love her style …. I’m assuming this is a transgender person who’d rather be thought of as a woman.
I love the colour blocking, down to the light blue nail polish.
And thank you for representing a most unrepresented part of the population! Style knows no bounds!
April 24, 2013 at 6:53 pm
Sometimes it kills me to see an effeminate man when he is such a gorgeous man if you get my drift. Beautiful face!
April 24, 2013 at 6:56 pm
Wow, amazing amazing style!
April 24, 2013 at 7:25 pm
That sweater is so nice
April 24, 2013 at 7:31 pm
Hey! You should probably ask this person which gender pronouns they prefer and which gender they would like to be classified under (you can’t just assume they would like to be under the “Men” category).
That being said, this is a beautiful picture and this person has wonderful style.
April 25, 2013 at 12:57 am
I kind of assumed the other way, since it’s a man dressing as a woman.
April 27, 2013 at 12:20 pm
It’s not necessarily a good idea to assume the opposite way either, though! People express their gender in a way that makes sense to them–and there’s no foolproof way for others to guess what their gender is.
If anyone knows this person and which gender pronouns they prefer, will you let us know?
April 24, 2013 at 8:05 pm
OMG!!! he looks gorgeous! I’m so proud of him, he finally gets to express and dress the way he wants
April 24, 2013 at 9:11 pm
three years ago I could wear it myself.
April 24, 2013 at 9:12 pm
Intriguing. Makes me want to talk to this person.
une chatte grise
April 25, 2013 at 2:30 am
What a lovely person!
April 25, 2013 at 5:03 am
Here’s a guy who can wear pink skinnies extremely well, rather than the skinnies being the focus. AND he looks good wearing the dark cool colours on top. The high contrast of his dark hair/eyebrows and paler skin tone work with well with the high contrast of bright cool colours – fuschia pink and sharp black. Even his lips work well as they reflect the deep pink of the skinnies. I wonder if he thought all of this through as he pulled this outfit together?!
April 25, 2013 at 5:05 am
Acrtually on closer inspection I think he may be wearing a pink lipstick that reflects the colour of the skinnies and he does it so well it looks very natural.
April 25, 2013 at 6:31 am
Very inspiring, a totally modern and fresh vision of a man in make up.. clym.co.uk
April 25, 2013 at 6:32 am
Great looking kid looks great.
What’s not to like?
April 25, 2013 at 7:33 am
is not his first time here…
he plays beyond well with genders.
April 25, 2013 at 8:44 am
Gutsy. Like the look
April 25, 2013 at 9:41 am
pants are the perfect color
kw, ladies in navy
April 25, 2013 at 11:52 am
Looked at this quickly and thought, okay, cool, whatever. Then I did a double-take and really saw it. This is why I love your phototgraphy, Scott. There’s often a bit more to it than what first meets the eye. A similar photo that comes to mind is the girl on the bicycle with the prosthetic leg. Beautiful subject!
April 25, 2013 at 12:43 pm
Nothing wrong with mixing it up (androgyny), and he does it well!
April 25, 2013 at 8:09 pm
For sure not my cup of tea ( but I am already 52), but I like that in this blog we celebrate style independently from gender, race, body type, and sexual orientation. If you feel comfortable with your skin, who I am to criticize you?
April 26, 2013 at 7:43 am
love it..love what you said to that silly guy Nick up there..
April 26, 2013 at 2:39 pm
What a beautiful young person! Whether genderqueer or just fabulous, this look is amazing.
April 26, 2013 at 4:25 pm
His lips match his pants.
April 26, 2013 at 8:19 pm
I didn’t even notice that! Good catch! I think he is really cute. Regardless of the bravery issue. And certainly a good example of someone that has the courage to live life to the fullest.
April 27, 2013 at 3:23 pm
I love following this blog because of the comments as much as the pictures. Yes, very interesting picture, and yes, fearless. Imagine myself trying to get away with this, and cannot.
April 27, 2013 at 6:17 pm
Love this lad

April 28, 2013 at 2:38 pm
Those teal nails are the perfect touch to round out this look! Great shot!
April 29, 2013 at 12:07 am
Sadly this mans androgynous style is still considered fearless. I love nail polish on men….especially black polish…always will. I’m stealing this look for Monday with my wedge sneaks…Who’da thunk a nearly 50 yr old woman would be inspired by young man on the street in NYC. Thanks!
April 30, 2013 at 4:08 am
Cardigan for every occasion..It’s great.
April 30, 2013 at 7:11 am
Love the color combo!

Just Beautiful :)
May 9, 2013 at 1:02 pm
I love this. SO CUTE yet firece!!!
May 20, 2013 at 4:48 pm
I love the look! Fearless is the fair word for this. I can tell you that since I write form Mexico City, most people there like ordinary stuff.
September 30, 2015 at 7:25 am
Actually, from what I know of them, they’re queer, trans and genderqueer, and yes, they’re gorgeous!
