JD Samson, singer, model, feminist electropunk and all around Dandi has a wonderful spread in Vogue Homme which makes me very happy. I have to say that the European versions of men’s magazines are certainly much more willing to be creative and do features with a lot more diversity than the staid ole American ones. “Ohhh, scary, a women who looks good in men’s clothing whose not projecting a feminine image…” Are their egos really so fragile?
Vogue Homme first did a spread with Lady Gaga’s Jo Calderone making this magazine as After Ellen says ‘a lesbian’s delight.’ What Vogue Homme has done is what I think the true meaning of androgynous beauty is all about. My wish for x-mas would be for every men’s magazine to do a shoot with their favorite Dandi. I know they’d sell more mag’s!
