Gaultier lesbian ad not quite what it appears


Fashion advertising is long past being scandalized by little lesbianism. But what if one of the women isn't actually a woman? That's sure to get you some meta buzz, as Jean Paul Gaultier is discovering with his new campaign featuring Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova (left) and androgynous male model Andrej Pejic (right). The campaign is getting lots of attention for its faux sappho, partly because, as the Huffington Post notes, it comes on the heels of a Love magazine cover about androgyny which features Kate Moss kissing transsexual model Lea T. But it takes three to make a trend, so here's hoping finds a way to work this concept into the Super Bowl.
