Saint Laurent's Menswear Ads Features a Woman!

The tides have once again shifted, and fashion's ongoing love affair with androgyny is in full swing this season.

Men were the new women last year, and this year, women are becoming the new men in the fashion world.  As female model Casey Legler was signed to Ford's men's board, there's a new girl in town who's wearing the pants:  Saskia de Brauw.

Hedi Slimane hand selected Saskia for his first Saint Laurent men's campaign, and this isn't the first menswear job Saskia has had.  She also walked in Givenchy's Spring 2013 menswear show.

It may take some people a bit of time to adjust to the gender role swap, but it isn't a new venture in the world of fashion.  We say, the clothes look divine, whether on a male or female model!  So what do you think of the androgynous campaign?
