Andrej Pejic Is Gaultier's Pistol-Packing Blond Bond Goddess At Fall 2011 Men's Show

Jean Paul Gaultier delivered Andrej Pejic as a sexy, pistol-packing, stiletto-wearing secret agent in the designer’s glamorous tribute to James Bond, shown as his fall/winter 2011/2012 collection today in Paris.

Gaultier has reversed Anne’s vision of the Smart Sensuality woman, creating a refined, yet provocative modern man who succeeds in saving the world, using both masculine muscle and feminine charms.

In the case of Andrej Pejic as the Bond girl, we’re talking far more than sizzle-girl charm. Andrej is totally transformational beyond belief when he assumes the femme role.

Who knows. Andrej Pejic just may walk the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2011. (See more Andrej Pejic)

Poor Marc Jacobs looks pretty dowdy as Mrs. Jacobs, lensed by Patrick Demarchelier for Industrie #2. We hate putting the uber creative Jacobs up against the glam of Andrej Pejic, but when the shoe fits, a guy’s gotta wear it. See the Marc Jacobs editorial.

WTF? I'm really beginning to worry about the fashion folks. Strange is one thing, but this is looking like someone is doctoring their drinking water with heavy metals riding organic acids. Is this for real?

CDM, sorry I haven't been in touch. This transgender issue has just skyrocketed this week, and it will escalate in the coming months.

Gaultier is fashion, of course, and runways are made to be seen for cameras. If your question is focused on the transgender issue itself, Cyranos, I take the subject of sexual fluidity very seriously, especially among younger people.

I'm reading a huge report on American sexuality right now, but as you and I have discussed many times, countries like Argentina, Brazil, France, Italy -- many countries are more relaxed about gender identity.

I find the issue a bit more complex for me, because I basically don't trust the fashion industry's relationship with women at all. I do trust Marc Jacobs -- also in this article. Maybe you were talking about Marc. LOL. But I don't trust many fashion designers in their relationship with women, so the trend is a bit unsettling for me in that respect. I believe that several key designers would be very happy to do away with female sexuality entirely, as I've written many times.

I'll be in touch soon CDM. Anne

(LOL) I was mostly talking about the whole bearded church-lady thing. I've always said once I'm dead what happens to my corpse isn't of much concern to me, but... bury me looking like that and expect my ghost to be tickling your feet not any time but every time you think you're about to get off until there's been an acceptable apology offered, or you've crossed over where we can spend a couple of hundred years discussing the issue dead and in person.

Tactical is crystal clear on the relationship between fashion and women: fashion exploits the girls horribly, guilty in excess in the realms of psyche manipulations, twisting on the insecurities they installed by way of the industries of dissatisfaction to maintain a profit margin and to hell with the damage done to her life, or the lives of those who might carry any degree of genuine love for her. For a long time it was mostly a girl thing but they've weakened and corrupted the boys now to the point they're starting to pick up serious clout on the guys as well.

Transgender is a strange subject. I met one once. Worked with (her) for a month and could not discern which gender the person was. Good hand, good company, good to work with, had a master's touch doing landscaping with a box blade (a surprisingly delicate art, really), just no clue if male or female. The fourth Saturday afternoon she finally laughed, said I'd won the all time award for perfect gender neutral communication and explained the genetics of her situation, said she was being an overtime hog saving up to go to Europe for surgery, asked me what my excuse was.

Hers (to his) was a corrective thing to repair a confirmed birth defect. That was pushing forty years ago. Such work as that I have no problem with, legitimate medicine even if out on the peripheries of the domain. What worries me is the idea of the industries of dissatisfaction latching onto that technology and promoting it in the same manner as they have all the other vanity driven cosmetic surgeries. To have (what's left of) the honor of one of the most deeply respected professions (medicine) prostituted into the service of vanity and insanity on that scale tolerated proportionate to profit potential would be more than sad, it would be obscene at the deepest of levels.
