'It's a Guy Thing' for Harper's Bazaar UK Plays With Gender Roles

'It's a Guy Thing' in Harper's Bazaar UK is an editorial that takes traditional gender roles and confuses them. Stylist Alison Edmond dresses Bette Frank in cold-weather separates from MaxMara, Yves Saint Laurent and Prada, and Paola Kudacki takes the shoot outdoors for an even more rugged look.

What I like about 'It's a Guy Thing' in Harper's Bazaar UK is that unlike other cross-dressing shoots where women are made to look like men, Bette Frank retains feminine makeup and long, loose tresses. It's this juxtaposition--of Frank's womanly features and the manly separates she wears--that sets this editorial off just right.
