ROCK AND ROLL ANDROGYNY

 Androgyny's nothing new...check out the court of Versailles for instance where men regularly wore ruffled blouses, high heels, makeup, wigs and even beauty marks...not good.  Leave it to rock stars to make androgyny sexy. 
I've found some examples for you....
The purple prince of androgyny.
There is no shortage of lovely white ruffled blouses, should you want to rock Prince's look. 


I can't imagine Billy Joe Armstrong without his eye makeup and short choppy hair cut.
I've always had long hair myself, but I really admire these looks...


Theatrical makeup is a little challenging to pull off....yet
 ...this girl rocks the Bowie, and still looks cute.




She's got the suit like Jagger, but does she have the moves?

Why should the boys have all the fun?  Patti Smith rocks the androgynous look.
 Okay, so he's a hell of a lot prettier than Patti Smith...but if you can pull your eyes away from his face for a moment you may notice they are similarly dressed.

 "Someone at Max's asked me if I was androgynous.  I asked what that meant.  "You know like mick Jagger"  I figured that must be cool.  I thought the word meant both beautiful and ugly at the same time.  Whatever it meant, with just a haircut, I miraculously turned androgynous overnight"  Patti Smith


 "Androgyny and rock music are not new things"  David Bowie

Have you ever dressed in an androgynous way?  Do you think it's easier for a man or a woman to dress this way?  Do you think it's sexy?  Would love to know.

Have a beautiful day.

I love this look (and I'm playing Patti Smith's Horses right now- I love her look, although I'm pretty sure she was never trying to have a "look.")
