The Orientalismi Editorial Combines Masculinity and Femininity

Androgyny has never looked as good as featured in the Orientalismi editorial for the April 2011 issue of Amica magazine. Model Charlotte Tomaszewska rocks menswear-inspired looks accompanied with slicked-back, bleached hair.

Although the wardrobe styling in the Orientalismi editorial could have easily made the model appear too masculine, there are elements to it that add femininity. Deep, plunging necklines and slits found in the skirts and pants make the clothing sexy and appealing. Paolo Turina has chosen these androgynous, yet feminine clothes from labels like Max Mara, and Haider Ackerman.

I’m also finding the powder-blue eyeshadow especially striking; it really gives the photos a cool, 1970s vibe. Mixing elements of androgyny with femininity makes the Orientalismi editorial stand out in a truly powerful way.
