Will there be a time when a black, trans woman is sworn in as president? That’s the question the newest issue of Candy magazine hopes to explore through their latest provocative cover, which features transsexual model Connie Fleming styled to look like First Lady Michelle Obama.
Androgynous model Andrej Pejic is both a pretty lady and a pretty dude for a spread in transversal style mag Candy.
In a year when the best advice anyone could give about anything was “Do the best you can with less,” fashion magazines — the smart ones, anyway — seemed to respond in kind. White space, nudity, and faces (and bodies) rather than full-on fashion dominated the best magazine covers of 2010, and we’ve assembled a group of 15 books we think did it best.
We sorta thought all of the “Lady Gaga could very well be a hermaphrodite” jokes ended with the music video for “Telephone” but it turns out that we were wrong. Candy Magazine, which earlier in the month posted photos of James Franco in drag, hired a male Lady Gaga impersonator to find out what it would look like if Gaga used a urinal.
This morning, we showed you James Franco dressed in drag for the cover of transversal style magazine, Candy. And while the cover photo (and stills shown in the accompanying video) were great, we now have photos of Franco’s spread inside the glossy — which, yes, were shot by Terry Richardson.
James Franco, though one would be hard pressed to recognize him, graces the cover of the 2nd issue of Candy magazine, “The First Transversal Style Magazine.” The image, shot by Terry Richardson, features Franco in full drag costume: red lips, blue eye shadow, black gloves and all — though they did keep his sideburns intact.
