A TIMELINE OF FABULOUSLY DRESSED WOMEN
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.
