STYLE. GROOMING. INSPIRATION. ADVICE.
Women vs Men
By Matt Glazebrook, 9 March 2015
Androgyny is big news in fashion right now. Prada sent men and women down their Milan menswear catwalk in complementary shades of office drone grey while Hedi Slimane dressed his Saint Laurent AW15 boys in super-skinny leather leggings and stacked heels, straight from the womenswear department. And that was before Our Lord Kanye unveiled his Adidas-fuelled future vision of utilitarian, unisex bodysuits…
But if we're going to share garms, girls, we should at least establish a clear hierarchy for whose steez reigns supreme. And look, here’s a bunch of gender-bending celeb twinsies to help us do just that.
Kristen Stewart vs Tinie Tempah
Tinie is the undisputed king of colourful suit/white tee smartwear. But Twilight star and well-known boy clothes aficionado Kristen Stewart gives him a run for his money in this burgundy number. The beatific smile still needs work, though.
Rita Ora vs A$AP Rocky
About the only thing to choose between Rita and ASAP's takes on monochrome, longline and logoed streetwear is the American sports that provide the inspiration. Rocky's top is modelled on a basketball vest, while Ms Ora's boxy, long-sleeved number has more of a hockey vibe. Although that sheer netting is going to get cold out on the ice.
Rihanna vs Kanye West
Like yin and yang – only with more cleavage – RiRi and Yeezy offer contrasting takes on the no-shirt formalwear look. It's a brave style choice, baring your chest at posh do, so it helps to break up the sea of skin with an eye-catching accessory or two (like Ye's gold chain and Rihanna's winged goddess tatt).
Cara Delevingne vs James Bay
It's not often you get to judge a fashion battle of the sexes in real time. But then strong-browed megamodel Cara Delevigne and be-hatted troubadour James Bay turned up on the BRIT Awards red carpet in perfectly matching versions of boho rocker chic. Awkward.
