Hong Kong Vogue August Issue

The August edition of Hong Kong Vogue is really interesting in regards to gender constructions and representations (a topic I’m analysing for my PhD). There are several shoots using androgynous models, informative articles talking about androgyny, makeup shoots based on drag queen makeup, and female cover star Angela Baby is styled with short hair, wearing oversized silhouettes. This is an encouraging step in a city which suffers from a lot of gender discrimination, however I find it interesting that the models seen and constructed as androgynous were used for this special themed issue, rather than used in say, the May issue, without comment or accompanying articles – reminds me slightly of the Vogue Italia all black issue.
