This original article was first published here: Met Gala Ball 2021 – Why Are Luxury Fashion Brands Portraying Men As Women?
As the owner of MenStyleFashion, I was in anticipation to see at this Met Gala ball what men were going to be wearing? Do men need to be portrayed as women by wearing our clothes? I am very mindful of the new terminology plastered on Tick Tok, Instagram and every social media regarding men.
Why are men dressing in women’s clothing? I call it “Girly menswear”
I work with some of the most luxury fashion artisans for men here in Italy. They are certainly NOT targeting men to wear dresses, high heels let alone frills. The Met Gala ball is a publicity stunt to get the world talking about men wearing women’s clothing.
It’s an exclusive invite-only to the people they want to market in the world of luxury fashion.
Trust me, there are men on social media with much more influence than these guys tonight. They are not wearing high heels or dresses to sell menswear.
Men don’t need to be wearing women’s clothing to highlight their deep inner emotions.
Define The Gender Agenda Balance?
Today’s youth, Generation Z, will be in charge of defining the future of masculinity. Today’s young male personalities like, Harry Styles, Jaden Smith and Lil Uzi Vert, who often dress in skirts and feminine blouses are more open to gender and sexual fluidity.
More so than the previous generation of millennials. Let’s get real in the world of luxury fashion marketing for Met Gala Ball 2021. These guys have been invited as Hollywood’s marketing tools to get men to buy into luxury fashion. It’s nothing to do with the mental health of the average guy.
What is the hidden agenda here for men tonight? Simple, gay men being eccentric! Nothing new here as gay men are much more conscious of their images. They spend the most on luxury clothing. Also, most gay men don’t have kids. Kids are expensive.
I am a mum, I could have bought a $1million home so far on the cash I spent on my teenager kids.
An image of two men kissing? Is it targeting men of all genres here tonight? Does it represent the THEY movement? NO.
Our Ladies Aren’t Dressing Like Men
All the women in the public eye tonight like, Jennifer Lopez. Bille Eilish, Kim Kardashian and Emily Blunt all looking and representing what we ladies are amazing at. Wearing dresses, skirts and high heels.
Why is the Met Gala Ball going out of the way to highlight men wanting to wear high heels? It’s desperate times for luxury fashion houses. The Chinese are not buying or travelling to Europe. Chinese leader, Xi Jinping is limiting the world of luxury fashion shopping and influencers, within China.
Hence the luxury fashion brands have to target the pink money. So what do luxury fashion houses do? They put men in women’s clothing. I have been to New York, I never saw men dressing in high heels, skirts or dresses.
The men tonight that wore women’s clothing were pushing the LGBTQ agenda. The Met Gala ball are not being diverse at all.
Show Casing Tailoring For Men
What an opportunity missed. This is the platform to showcase men’s tailoring at its best. Or in the case like Dolce & Gabbana
What an amazing gold cape Lil Nas X wore. This is all about a wonderful message of discrimination. The cape shielding his history of bullying in the past. The message is a call to action and a clear message with a purpose.
Lil Nas X told a three-part LGBTQ+ American fairytale with his look for the 2021 Met Gala. He arrived on the red carpet in a dramatic cape that exudes regality and represents concealing one’s true self. The cape was then shed to reveal gleaming Medusa-adorned armour, a symbol of protection from the prejudices faced as a Black, queer person. Finally, the armour is removed to reveal a skin-tight bodysuit that represents living life as your true, unguarded self.
Black men, in general, get bullied too.
This outfit below has been so worn by every gay man I have met at fashion weeks, since 2012. Is this all the designer could come up with?
His jacket does not even fit that well? So much for bespoke tailoring in New York?
The Psychological Impact Of This Ideology
The “traditional masculinity ideology” has been very detrimental to the health, both mental and physical of men, according to the American Psychological Association. They would argue that “Men who adhere to traditionally masculine cultural norms, such as risk-taking, violence, dominance, the primacy of work, need for emotional control, desire to win, and pursuit of social status, tend to be more likely to experience psychological problems such as depression, stress, body image problems, substance abuse, and poor social functioning”.
How Do Men Re-interpret Themselves?
Will this outfit below make a man less aggressive? Will it inspire men to fight depression and body image?
Most men are plus-size in America, New Zealand, Europe and Australia so this guys influence is not diverse enough.
None of these men tonight come remotely close to what the average Joe Blo feels, wears or looks like. Luxury fashion is closed-minded using thin and the same men targeting the pink money. Good luck with that.
Don’t worry thank God for my magazine that is all-inclusive and real. Time to get back to what men want, street style and tailoring.
