Elle (Canada) - - Relationship -

In the mid-1800s, writer Ge­orge Sand dressed up in men’s cloth­ing so she could get into men-only es­tab­lish­ments. Dressed in her cu­lottes and top hat, she sep­a­rated from her hus­band and en­gaged in nu­mer­ous love af­fairs.

Not car­ing what any­one thought, Coco Chanel cut her hair short, dressed like a school­boy and be­gan mak­ing clothes that rev­o­lu­tion­ized fash­ion for women af­ter the First World War.

Ac­tresses Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton of­ten dress in menswear-in­spired clothes. They in­form men of what is fem­i­nine, not the other way around.
