These Celebrities Are Breaking Gender Norms In Fashion And Beauty

These days, fashion and beauty as forms of self-expression are starting to break away from outdated gender-based rules.

As kids, we were always taught that blue was for boys and pink was for girls, among other preconceived notions about what you can and cannot wear based on your sex.

These days, fashion and beauty as forms of self-expression are starting to break away from outdated gender-based rules. From wearing suits and skirts to donning nail art regardless of your gender identity, the younger generations are starting to care less about what you should and shouldn’t put on—and we’ve got celebrities joining the movement, too. 

Harry Styles

Harry Styles dressing up as a ballerina—baby pink tutu and all—is something we never we needed. The former One Direction member has never been shy about going beyond gender rules in fashion.

Who said mini purses are a trend meant only for the ladies? Lauv can definitely carry the trend just as well.

From fancy nail art to wearing items from the women’s collections, there’s nothing stopping BTS from expressing their artistry through the outfits they wear.

Jaden Smith

Clearly, both Smith siblings believe that there’s no limits when it comes to fashion. Jaden has also been photographed several times wearing skirts in fashion spreads.

 

Billie Eilish

The 18-year-old singer has been vocal about not caring what other people think about what she wears. She even released thought-provoking interlude about the judgment she—and other women—received for the clothes they choose to wear.

In the interlude, Billie says, “If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I am a slut. Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me. While I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sighs of relief, if I lived by them, I’d never be able to move.”
