It seems as if the fashion world can't get enough of androgyny lately, and Jean Paul Gaultier's Fall '09 ad campaign plays heavily on this theme. Model Raquel Zimmermann is captured as both a man and a woman for the ad campaign, drawing upon her famously androgynous features.

Implications - The androgynous look is very much in style. This is because fashion lovers do not want gender to serve as a limitation for donning certain styles. By pushing the "unknown gender," fashion houses can market their products as unisex, increasing their chances of selling their designed goods and fitting the boundary-pushing style that has taken the fashion consumer by storm.
