'Venus As a Boy' Plays with Masculine and Feminine Aesthetics

By: Trenton Millar - Published: • References: theones2watch
Masculine and feminine gender roles are just made up by society, so this 'Venus As A Boy' editorial throws tradition out the window and thinks of fashion outside the gender binary.

Photographer Aylen Torres shoots model Arto Manelschots in a variety of fashion forward garments. The style aesthetic can be described as bringing together glam, punk and skater aspects into one seriously high-fashion look. Jackets covered in studs and pants adorned with straps and buckles are just some of the stand out items chosen by stylist Jean-Pol Fontesse for the Venus As A Boy editorial. Hair and make-up artist Louise De Buck does a good job of making Arto look rosy cheeked and youthful, just like the Roman goddess Venus that he is portraying.

Working as though fashion has no boundaries gives the Venus As A Boy editorial an elevated fashion-forward flare. Stats for Mythically Androgynous Editorials Trending: Older & Average
