Tyson Beckford Sparks Gay Rumours with Transgender Model Ines Rau Nude Pose !!

Tyson Beckford Sparks Gay Rumours with Transgender Model Ines Rau Nude Pose!!

Tyson Beckford has ignited debate over his sexuality after posing nude with transgender model Ines Rau.

The 42-year-old male model sent the internet into a frenzy by stripping down to his birthday suit for the X-rated editorial for OOB Magazine's 'Tropical Surrealism' spread.
In the black-and-white pictures by Rodolfo Martinez, the duo pose with nothing but skin between them. 

One snap shows Rau with one hand on Beckford's shoulder while the other is resting on his backside. Beckford is turned away from the camera, revealing his bare back as she wraps her legs around his waist.

In response to the photos Beckford simply posted a tweet:
A number of other photographs depict the couple kissing and caressing each other.

"This is distasteful - it's not even art. Everybody isn't going to be down with the gay community. I feel that they are trying to make people feel guilty or bad for what they believe in," one unimpressed viewer said.

"I am sorry but I don't understand. Is this Tyson's coming out? They must be trying to make some sort of statement by using him, he is a well-known model."

According to Ines, her Instagram account almost got shut down after she shared the image with fans online.

"I'm not posting anything about it any more. You know where to see it," she said. "And I am taking a pause with Instagram for a little bit as they disabled it two times because of those pictures."

Although Beckford has not commented on the speculation surrounding his sexuality, he previously revealed that his notions of beauty had matured over the years.

"We spend so much time saying what beauty is, but no one really knows," he told Perth Now. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - always has been and always should be."

Supermodel Tyson Beckford stripped down alongside transgender model Ines Rau for a steamy new photoshoot published in OOB, a French fashion magazine.

Beckford, who is straight, opened up about how it feels to be one of People Magazine’s “sexiest men in the world,” his modeling career, and his ideal woman — who happens to be his girlfriend.
“She has dark hair, olive skin and green eyes," he said. “As soon as I saw her, I was seduced.”

But Beckford, 42, appeared to have plenty of affection for Rau, the 24-year-old French model who recently confided to about changing sexes when she was only 16 years old.
“I just woke up one day realizing that it’s enough, I need to embrace who I am and be loved for what I am and what I have been through — without the fear of being rejected,” she told the website.
Rau called herself “the happiest girl in the world, just being what I wanted to be.”

Beckford, best known as the sexy face of Ralph Lauren Polo, said working with Rau was a breeze.
“She is a sexual being so I could feed off that,” he told the magazine. “There was no hesitation for her, she didn’t hold back. You know, some girls just don’t want to get in trouble with their boyfriends. When you’re at work and you can create and just let go, that’s great, you don’t always get that unfortunately.”

The photoshoot quickly went viral online as fans applauded the models and photographer Rodolfo Martinez for such a display of sexual equality.
Photographer Rodolfo Martinez creates a stunning set of images for France’s OOB Magazine with Tyson Beckford and model Ines Rau. What makes these images all the more powerful is the fact that Ines Rau is an absolutely gorgeous transgender model.

It is wonderful to see celebrities such as Tyson Beckford and progressive photographers such as Rodolfo Martinez breaking down social barriers by collaborating in professional and artistic ways with talent in the LGBT community. Ines Rau is the beautiful transgender co-star in this photo shoot and truly exudes some raw female emotion. I for one think the work is beautiful and a step in the right direction. I applaud everyone involved for their amazing effort.

Uvenio Salutes to Iconic: Jean-Paul Gaultier!

Jean Paul Gaultier  is a French haute couture and Pret-a-Porter fashion designer. Gaultier was the creative director of Hermès from 2003 to 2010. In the past, he has hosted the television series Eurotrash.

  Gaultier never received formal training as a designer. Instead, he started sending sketches to famous couture stylists at an early age. Pierre Cardin was impressed by his talent and hired him as an assistant in 1970. Afterwards he worked with Jacques Esterel in 1971 and Jean Patou later that year, then returning to manage the Pierre Cardin boutique in Manila for a year in 1974.

His first individual collection was released in 1976 and his characteristic irreverent style dates from 1981, and he has long been known as the enfant terrible of French fashion. Many of Gaultier's following collections have been based on street wear, focusing on popular culture, whereas others, particularly his Haute Couture collections, are very formal yet at the same time unusual and playful.
Although most people found his designs decadent at the time, fashion editors, notably Melka Tréanton of Elle, Claude Brouet and Catherine Lardeur of French Marie Claire, were seduced by his creativity and immediately noticed his mastery of tailoring and later launched his career.
 In 1985 he introduced man-skirts, and produced sculptured costumes for Madonna during the nineties, starting with her infamous cone bra for her 1990 Blond Ambition Tour, and designed the wardrobe for her 2006 Confessions Tour. Gaultier has also worked in close collaboration with Wolford Hosiery. He promoted the use of skirts, especially kilts on men's wardrobe, and the release of designer collections.

Gaultier caused shock by using unconventional models for his exhibitions, like older men and full-figured women, pierced and heavily tattooed models, and by playing with traditional gender roles in the shows. This earned him both criticism and enormous popularity.
At the end of the 1980s, Gaultier suffered some personal losses, including his lover and business partner Francis Menuge, who died of AIDS-related causes.
Gaultier designed the wardrobe of many motion pictures, including Luc Besson's The Fifth Element, Pedro Almodóvar's Kika, Peter Greenaway's The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet's La Cité des enfants perdus (The City of Lost Children). He currently designs for three collections: his own couture and ready-to-wear lines, for both men and women.

In 1988 Gaultier released a dance single titled "How To Do That" on Fontana records from which came one of the first ever "single title" remix albums "Aow Tou Dou Zat" on Mercury records.[9] The album includes mixes by Norman Cook, JJ Jeczalik, George Shilling, Mark Saunders, Latin Rascals, David Dorrell, Tim Atkins, Carl Atkins, and Mantronik. Co-written & produced by Tony Mansfield, video directed by Jean Baptiste Mondino. The album also featured a collaboration with accordion player Yvette Horner.

Gaultier has designed a number of the costumes and outfits worn by rocker Marilyn Manson, including the outfits for Manson's Golden Age of Grotesque album.[ In France the costumes he designed for singer Mylène Farmer gained much attention. In spring 2008 he signed a contract to be again the fashion designer for her tour in 2009.
He's also well known for his exhibit in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art known as Bravehearts — Men in Skirts.[ In 2013, the Brooklyn Museum opened a retrospective exhibit, “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk."

He has designed the costumes for Kylie Minogue's international KYLIEX2008 tour, as well as the late iconic Hong Kong singer Leslie Cheung, who hired Gaultier to design eight different costumes for the last concert tour before Cheung's death.

In 2012, he was named as a member of the Jury for the Main Competition at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.This is the first time a fashion designer was called to sit on a jury at the festival. He also designed the dress that Anggun wore as she represented France during the grand-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 held in Baku, Azerbaijan. In 2012 he also participated in the Cali ExpoShow in Cali (Colombia), showing his extense collection of perfumes and all classic clothes. 
Active Labels Labels include Jean Paul Gaultier, Gaultier PARIS – couture collection – and former JEAN'S Paul Gaultier, Eyewear Jean Paul Gaultier and Jean Paul Gaultier Argent. Besides his ready-to-wear collection, in 1988 Gaultier expanded his brand to include the label Junior Gaultier, a lower-priced line designed for the youth market with a heavy nautical influence that he began to carry throughout all of his collections.
 In 1988, a Junior Gaultier outfit was selected by Jeff Banks as the Dress of the Year The Junior Gaultier label was replaced in 1994 with JPG by Gaultier, a unisex collection that followed the designer's idea of fluidity of the sexes. Gaultier Jean's, a similar line consisting mainly of denim and more simply styled garments with a heavy street influence, followed in 1992, which was then replaced with Jean's Paul Gaultier from 2004 to 2008. Junior Gaultier's name was reused in 2009 for the launching of the child's wear, to be completed with a Baby Line in 2011.

What brought Gaultier immense success was the advent of his haute couture line in 1997. Through this collection, he was able to freely express the scope and range of his aesthetic, drawing inspiration from radically divergent cultures, from imperial India to Hasidic Judaism. As a result of this success, Hermès hired Gaultier as creative director from 2003 to 2010. Hermes took a 30% stake in Jean Paul Gaultier in 2003 and later increased their stake to 45%.[
Jean Paul Gaultier licenses a line of perfumes in collaboration with Puig company. The first fragrance, Classique, a women's floral-oriental, was introduced in 1993, followed by Le Mâle for men two years later. Both were highly successful, and Le Mâle is now the number-one men's fragrance in the European Union based on sales; it also holds a strong market position in Australia and the United States.
The third fragrance, the women's fragrance Fragile, was introduced in 2000; however, it is now in limited distribution due to poor sales. In 2005, the unisex "fragrance for humanity" Gaultier² (pronounced Gaultier to the power of two) was launched (except in Canada, where it was launched in January 2006, and the United States, where it was launched in August 2006).
Most recently, a men's fragrance, Fleur du Mâle was launched in April 2007. Shortly thereafter, the "Eau de Cologne Fleur du Mâle" was released demonstrating a lighter version of the Fleur du Mâle. The newest in the Gaultier family of fragrances is ladies fragrance "Ma Dame".

The 6 July 2011 the new men's fragrance, Kokorico,[ has been launched at the La Gaîté Lyrique, just after the Haute Couture F/w 2011-2012 fashion show[
All Jean Paul Gaultier perfumes are produced under a long-term license by Paris-based Beauté Prestige International.

Gaultier gone Brooklyn!

The Brooklyn Museum is the only East Coast venue for The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, the first international exhibition dedicated to the groundbreaking French couturier. Playful, poetic, and transformative, Gaultier’s superbly crafted and detailed garments are inspired by the beauty and diversity of global cultures.

This multimedia exhibition is organized around seven themes tracing the influences on Gaultier's development—from the streets of Paris to the cinema—since he emerged as a designer in the 1970s. It features approximately 140 haute couture and prêt-à-porter ensembles, from the designer’s earliest to his most recent collections, many of which are displayed on custom mannequins with interactive faces created by high-definition audiovisual projections.
Accessories, sketches, stage costumes, excerpts from films, and documentation of runway shows, concerts, and dance performances, as well as photographs by fashion photographers and contemporary artists who stepped into Gaultier’s world, explore how his avant-garde designs challenge societal, gender, and aesthetic codes in unexpected ways.
