British Daily Mail newspaper, reports on Romeo Beckham's modelling assignment for a YSL campaign. Romeo, 19 at the time, exemplifies a new generation of fashion forward men who are not afraid to push gender boundaries.
From the article:
"The son of Victoria and David Beckham , 19, who has done his fair share of modelling already, posed up a storm in a Playboy jumper and wide legged jeans"
"Romeo wowed in a pair of patent leather boots which boasted a slim kitten heel, while also rocking an eye-catching gold manicure for the photoshoot"
"Romeo's famous family went wild for the snaps, as they took to the comments section of the post to applaud his latest work"

All KPop reports on boy band 2AM's Jo Kwon's appearance in a Crop Top, Leggings and High Heels. It's a shame there isn't much substance to it other than a collection of photos from Jo Kwon, so I'm only sharing this article due to the fact that it's reporting on a man in heels, as I feel it's important to amplify the visibility of the subject.
It was rightly called-out by some of the people commenting about their reference in the headline to his "perfect figure". We're not even going to go there as it might just turn into a long rant, but feel free to add your comments on our Instagram post, linked above in the Icons.

From 2021, Free Press Journal brings us this article covering the twitter-storm around Indian Actor, Ranveer Singh's heels which he wore for a photo shoot. It seems the trolls came out in force and once again demonstrated their lack of intolerance and engrained social conditioning.
From the article:
"If you ask someone why a man shouldn’t wear a skirt, there is no real reason. It’s just something we have learned from childhood and never questioned because we believed what was told to us by our parents/society was the rule. The conflict starts only when we see different things happening in another society and wonder why that is, because either they are not following the ‘rules’ or there are ‘no rules’. Now, if someone wants to break the norm, it becomes uncomfortable for others because it defies a longstanding belief system for a culture or a community."
"I just feel everybody has the freedom of wearing what they want. Nowadays, fashion has changed as per generational choices and we should also move with the times. I don’t feel it’s something that should be trolled."
"I think people feel threatened when others are confident about their sexuality and are able to express themselves freely. It is very sad to see such intolerance."
Thankfully, people are starting to open up to the idea that men can be more expressive with what they wear, whatever that is.
