style icon (part I)


There are things you just don't wear as a man, at least not if you want to come across masculinely: feather necklaces, red leather flares and embroidered silk blouses. But that's just what they told you! Take a look at my personal number one style icon Lenny Kravitz: That dude can literally wear whatever he wants without looking like a clown. 

So why is Lenny a style icon and the other man are just trying? It's his own taste, even if it's against the latest trend, his charisma to make clothes come alive and his ability to translate a message into fashion: Don't let society tell you what style is appropriate for your sex. Build up your own fashion rules and create your own style. This guy is a creative genius!



Es gibt echt Dinge, die darf ein Mann nicht tragen, wenn er von mir heiß gefunden werden will: eine enge Jeansschlaghose, einen breiten Ledergürtel mit aufwendig verzierter Goldschnalle und dazu am besten noch ein türkisfarbenes Netzhemd. Und nein, ich rede hier nicht von einem Outfit für die nächste Mottoparty im Countrystil!

Aber Lenny Kravitz finde ich heiß, sogar verdammt heiß. Dabei trägt er immer die seltsamsten Dinge...was ist da los? Andere Männer würden sich zum Gespött der Medien machen, aber bei ihm findet die Frauenwelt plötzlich alles männlich: rotes Leder, Federketten, durchsichtige Blusen und bestickte Hosen. Der Mann kann einfach tragen, was er will. Das Selbstverständnis mit dem er Kleidung und Accessoires geschlechterunspezifisch miteinander kombiniert, macht ihn für mich unverwechselbar. Modische Unabhängigkeit kann man wohl den wenigstens nachsagen, doch genau das verkörpert er für mich: Mit seiner Leichtigkeit steht er für geschlechtliche Gleichheit, Toleranz und Freiheit in der Modewelt. Und jetzt darf tief und sehnsüchtig geseufzt werden;)

  62. Thank you SO much for following my blog! I am following you as well! Thanks for the comment on my "Keeper of the Grove" post. Shahin tends to be a ham in front of the camera at times. While we were first dating... I googled him!!! Don't lie... you know you do it to guys you are interested in too... you have to make sure they aren't creeps! Or maybe I'm the creep for doing the google search. Anyway, I googled him and found a his model mayhem profile and I tease him constantly about it to this day! I should really be more supportive and maybe pick on him less, but it does give me the option to photograph him for satin and salt.

  93. An Männern finde ich zu enge Hosen, also ähnlich wie leggins und bauchfrei-Tops ekelhaft, fast genauso schlimm, wenn die Hose so geschnitten ist, dass sich der Schw*** abzeichnet, oder eine Hose über den Bauch gezogen oder Netzoberteile. Auch entsetzlich aber kein Kleidungsstück: Wenn Männer ihre Haare über die Glatze/ Platte kämmen. Uäah! Männer können schon ekelhaft sein.

    Ich habe dich getagged und hoffe, du magst so etwas. Falls du mitmachen möchtest: Die Regeln stehen hier auf meinem Blog.

    vielen Dank für deinen lieben Kommentar, über die ich mich riesig gefreut habe. Finde ich gut, dass du eine Weile brauchtest, um zu bemerken, dass der Mann und sein Baby kopiert war, weil es dann ja nocht so sehr schlecht / unecht gewesen sein kann. hahaha

    Noch eine kurze Frage: Wie gefällt dir speziell mein jüngster Post?
