Jean Paul Gaultier has always had fun playing with gender. For his Autumn/Winter 2009-10 ad campaign, he continues with this trend, taking advantage of the androgyny of Raquel Zimmermann’s features to showcase her in both masculine and feminine roles. I’ve always been slightly thrown by the strength of her jawline, and so now in this campaign, I absolutely love the way she looks in drag. I actually find myself preferring the way she looks in that guise to her femme look.

(semi-tangentally: how dystopian-hot are these boots in the picture above? Love them!)
