The pictures I want to show you today are from different ad campaigns and editorials. Their different takes on masculinity and androgyny really caught my eye. I particularly like the Alexander Wang ad, I find the model’s pose and expression very striking. And I wouldn’t mind owning the outfit in the Calvin Klein ad.

Jon Uriarte is a Barcelona-based photographer who portrayed a series of men wearing their girlfriends’ clothes. But don’t expect to see a bunch of glammed-up, feather-boa wielding and six-inch stilettos wearing dudes, like one would normally expect from men in drag. Instead, in “The Men Under the Influence”, Uriarte shows them wearing everyday outfits that look very unique on their bodies. He says that this series of portraits “address the recent change in roles in heterosexual relationships from the relationships of our predecessors and how those changes have affected men in particular. The photos attempt to capture men’s sense of loss reference, now that women have taken a step forward and have finally come into their own as equal partners. The project consists of full-length portraits of men wearing the clothes of their girlfriends or wives, taken in the space shared by the couple.”
I like the different expressions on the men’s faces, they range from scepticism to contentment, from pride to cautious expectation. While the pictures have an eerie beauty about them, one question remains, however: How did all the men fit into their girlfriends’ clothes? No, seriously?
