Model David Varhegyi is styled by Noa Zarfati in an exploration of the “female aspect residing within each person, unrelated to its gender and sexual orientation.”

The images highlight the feminine delicacy and elegance present in men in an effort to challenge men to fully integrate the feminine into their identities and self expressions.
